DEEPWATER HORIZON EXPLOSeiON




Not if oil arrives, but when


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer

The outer edges of the,
Gulf of Mexico oil spill crept
closer to the Loop Current
Tuesday as Florida Keys
response agencies convened
to draft a battle plan.
One scientist tracking the
extent of the spill cautioned
South Florida "to go into hur-,
ricane mode."
"We have to prepare for
the worst while hoping for
the best," said Nick Shay, an


Expert says the damage to the Keys

'would take years, if not decades' to reverse


oceanographer at the
University of . Miami
Rosenstiel School of Marine
and Atmospheric Science
who specializes in currents.
"This is like a oceanic hurri-
cane. It's already a disaster
for the northern gulf."
The Loop Current flows
north in the Gulf of Mexico,
then loops west and south
before heading to the east


through the Florida Straits.
Shay said it appears
"inevitable that at least some
part of the oil slick is going to
make it into the Loop Current,
but at this point the exact con-
centration is uncertain."
Efforts to use a giant con-
crete box to catch oil leaking
from' the Deepwater Horizon
drill site, 5,000 feet below the
gulf surface, were under way


at press time.
If attempts to use the con-
crete collection domes fail and
the leak continues to feed an
estimated 210,000 gallons of
crude oil into the gulf each day,
Shay said, "This will far sur-
pass any [environmental dam-
age] the Exxon Valdez did."
Audubon of Florida
research director Jerry
Lorenz said if the oil reaches


South Florida's mangrove
forests, the critical ecosys-
tems could be destroyed.
"Once it's in the man-
groves, it really can't be
cleaned out," Lorenz said on
a conference call held by the
Everglades Foundation. "It
would take years, if not
decades, to wash out."
James Fourqurean, a
Florida International
University seagrass ecolo-
gist, agreed, "Water that goes
by the western edge of
Florida Bay will be pulled
into Florida Bay... If [the oil


spill] runs down to the south-
ern tip of Florida, that slick
could-be pulled into Florida
Bay and, remain resident
there for years."
"This could potentially
have a devastating impact on
wading birds and game-fish
species critical to the economy
of South Florida," Lorenz said.
Bruce Popham, a Marathon
marina owner /who chairs the
Florida Keys National Marine
Sanctuary Advisory Council,
said the spill demonstrates

Land swap key to plan


Development
now hinges on
permit transfers
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

The Bernstein family and
its FEB Corp. are the only
names so far attached to a
proposal/to develop a resort
community on 21-acre
Wisteria Island off Key West.
However, a quick search
of incorporation papers filed
with the state reveals that
there's another prominent
development family associ-
ated with the project: The
Walshes.


The Walsh family,
through its Ocean
Properties, owns the Westin
adjacent to Mallory Square
as well as Sunset Key, anoth-
er island in Key West Harbor
that was developed in the
1990s very similarly to the
Wisteria proposal. It was
formerly called Tank Island.
Specific plans drafted for
Wisteria Island by land-use
consultant Owen Trepanier
include:
* Thirty-five single-fami-
ly homes.
* Five workforce units.
* Thirty-five transient rental
units with a combined 85
bedrooms.
* 39,500 square feet of
retail, restaurant and shore-


side buildings associated
with a public-access moor-
ing field and 45 boat slips.
Monroe County Comp-
rehensive Planning Manager
Mitch Harvey says the build-
ing permit allocations asso-
ciated with the Wisteria
Island plan would have to be
transferred from existing or
as-yet undeveloped proper-
ties so there would be no
impact on the state mandated
rate-of-growth ordinance,
which ties development to
hurricane evacuation clear-
ance times.
"The way this is being
perceived," Harvey said,
"both by us and by the [state
Department of Community
Affairs] is that this will not


increase the overall number
of dwelling units in the
county. In order to build any-
thing, ,they'd have to be
transferred.
"It's all up to a willing
seller and a willing buyer.
What they would have to do
is purchase either unbuilt, or
existing units and then relo-
cate them. It may take them
years to find where the sender
sites are going to be and cre-
ate this as a receiver site."
Another issue is access to
utilities such as water and
sewer lines, and electricity.
Harvey said the plan is to run
an extension of the former
U.S. Navy utility corridor

MIDDLE KEYS


Charges filed


in abuse case


Two brothers
are accused of
sexual assault
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The older of two juvenile
brothers accused in April of
sexually assaulting two even
younger boys was officially
charged with two counts of
sexual battery 'Tuesday in
Marathon.
The 13-year-old former
Marathon Middle School stu-
dent was charged, while his
10-year-old brother, a former
Stanley Switlik Elementary
School student, avoided
arraignment for now.
"We filed charges on' the
older child and continued, by
agreement, the younger
child," Assistant State
Attorney Patrick McCullah
said. "The defense has some
information they want to pro-
vide me and I want to listen
to all sides."


The two were arrested in
April for allegedly forcing
two other Switlik boys -
ages 7 and 9 - into multiple
sexual acts.
The incidents allegedly
took place in Marathon from
December through February,
the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office said.
The older brother was
being held at the Juvenile
Justice Center on Stock
Island, but has been released.
"The judge put the older
of the two in for 21 days,
which is the maximum they
can be held pre-trial,"
McCullah said.
McCullah told the
Keynoter the brothers will
not be tried as adults.
"It's actually a different
charge. It's the same statute,
but a different subsection
when the offender is under
18," he said, adding the
brothers could potentially be
in custody until they turn 18
or even longer.

Viking funeral

staff member
By KEVIN WADLOW

kwadlow@keynoter.com
Flames consumed a model
boat off Jewfish Creek Sunday
night, an impromptu memorial
launched to honor a popular
Key Largo resort staffer.
The miniature Viking
funeral was in memory of
William Russell Lott, 30,
who died when his boat
apparently capsized in
Blackwater Sound on a night
fishing trip over the weekend.
Late Sunday, more than
100 friends at Gilbert's Resort

farewell notes to Lott, who

Long road ahead


for development


From Wisteria, 1 A


that puts Sunset Key on
the grid.
That would require a
swap of bay bottom, which
is also a lynchpin in the
development of a mooring
field. The Bernsteins own
around 120 acres of bay
bottom surrounding
Wisteria; it's just on the
wrong side of the island to
serve the state purpose.
"It's too shallow to put
a mooring .field in,"
Harvey said. So what
they're trying to do is go to
the state and apply for a
land swap to swap the land
they do own right now
with this area to the west


and south of the island.
"Not only, would they
be able to get thc mooring
field, they'd be able to
extend the utility lines to
Sunset Key."
Harvey and the appli-
cants are set to meet with
Key West officials includ-
ing Planning Director
Amy Kimball Murley next
week.
"There may be impacts
from the facility on the
city of Key West,"'
Kimball-Murley said "I'm
not sure exactly what that
process involves. Initially
I will definitely be looking
at wastewater treatment
and fire safety."

"There's so many vari-
ations in the juvenile sen-
tencing system. Depend-
ing on how he's sentenced,
they can be held until
they're adults, or a couple
years longer given the cir-
cumstances," he said.
McCullah said the ,
Department of Juvenile
Justice - assuming a
finding of guilt - will put
together a report including


sentencing recommenda-
tions for the two brothers.
"It's basically a study
that goes into the factors
that bear on sentencing.
That, under the law, carries
great weight with the
court, and we look at that
pretty hard," he said.
The 13-year-old will
have a pre-trial conference
at 2 p.m. May 25 before
Circuit Court Judge Mark
Jones in Marathon.

Mooring field eyed


Spokesman
calls residents
'squatters'
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

A major component of
long-term development plans
for Wisteria Island includes
transforming the free-for-all
mooring field there into an
organized affair with amenities
located on the 21-acre island.
Plans call for 45 wet slips
and 116 mooring balls on the
south and west side of the
island, plus a shore-side
store, restaurant, pool, rest-
rooms and pump-out facili-
ties for mooring-field resi-
dents and the general public.


Anchored residents regard
the area as the only true
affordable housing near Key
West and by government
officials, particularly the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission,
as an outlaw bastion for
derelict, vessels and marine
pollution.
"Whdt's happening with
the existing folks, that'll be
interesting," Monroe County
Comprehensive Planning
Manager Mitch Harvey said.
"I think the folks out there
now aren't living there
because they like being on a
boat. They do it because they
have to."
"For people currently liv-
ing out there for affordable
housing, they're anchored
illegally," project spokesman


Bill Barry said. "They're
squatters,." He said the intent
of the project is to clean up
the environment and make it
safer for boaters.
"Wisteria Island has been
in our family for two genera-
tions and we want to assist in
improving boater safety and
maintaining cleanliness of our
near shore waters," said Roger
Bernstein, the property owner.
On a recent trip around
the island, Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission Lt. David Dipre
counted six or seven derelict
boats sitting on the beach.
"There's a lot of drug activ-
ity ... and illegal dumping," he
.said of W1isteria Island "That
debris has nowhere to go but
down the slope of the beach
into the water."


WISTERIA ISLAND


Admiral's Cut could be key


Walsh family
controls slice
of waterfront
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Access across a mere 30
feet of waterfroht in Key
West could possibly bridge
miles of red tape for the
developers of Wisteria Island.
Admiral's Cut, owned by
the Walsh family - players
in a plan to develop the 21-
acre Wisteria Island into an
upscale resort complex - is
the only part of more than a
mile of Old Town waterfront
that isn't accessible to pedes-
| trians and bicyclists.


The Walsh family also
owns the adjacent Westin
resort and Pier B cruise-ship
berthing.
In April, Key West City
Commissioner Mark Rossi
told City Attorney Shawn
Smith that he wanted a sub-
stantive report on how the
city can bridge that gap, be it
through purchase or eminent
domain. The report was due
Tuesday night.
"I don't even know if he's
going to report on it," Rossi
said. "I've just been getting
so beat up about it," he said,
referring to numerous anony-
mous complaints from peo-
ple purporting to be down-
town business owners.
"It's a big game," he said.
"They're going to try to


throw that in as a bargaining
chip," he said, tying access
across Admiral's Cut to
future cooperation with city
officials on the Wisteria
Island development.
"I don't play their game
and I'm not on the take," he
said. "Admiral's Cut is for the
good of everybody; it's not
for the good of Mark Rossi."
"We've been talking about
a bridge over Admiral's Cut
since the beginning of time,"
Commissioner Jimmy
Weekley said. "From what I
understand, the Walshes want
to cooperate with the city but
they don't know what the final
plans are for the waterfront."
He's referring to develop-
ment plans for the 33-acre
Truman Waterfront.

Man charged

in DUI death

A 64-year-old seasonal
Marathon resident was
picked up at his Michigan,
home last week on charges
he caused, the death of 61-
year-old Bernie Snyder while
driving drunk.
Richard Lee Hall was at
his Michigan condo, appar-
ently making arrangements
to return to Florida this
Friday, when police came
knocking at his door.
"There were no charges
pending here when Mr. Hall
came and retained my office.
I spoke to [Assistant State
Attorney Patrick McCullah]
and he was aware Mr. Hall
needed to go to Michigan,"
attorney William Heffeman
told the Keynoter: He said
Hall is, among other things,
attempting to sell his
Michigan condo to afford a
defense.
"They put out a .warrant
and were claiming he was a
fugitive from justice. He's not
a fugitive from anything,"
Heffernan said. Hall is being
held on $150,000 bond at the
Plantation Key jail.
Snyder died Feb. 2 after a
2001 Chevy Corvette driven

Hall and Snyder had
reportedly gone to the Dion's

near mile marker 47.5 for cig-

to their 11th Street homes.
Heffernan said the
Corvette belonged to a
recently deceased friend
whose family asked Hall to
look after it. He says Hall sel-

"Without experience
behind the wheel, he lost

Heffernan said.
Heffernan told the

is scheduled for June 1.

FISHERMEN'S HOSPITAL


Trustees expanding


Board seeks to
replace HMA
by this summer
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Fishermen's Hospital
Community Board has
expanded its membership
and plans a series of public
meetings to outline options
for the hospital's future,
including possible sale along
with bids for new manage-
ment companies.
"We've got to look at
everything right now. A lot of
hard decisions have to be
made, but the hospital is not
going to cl6se," said Florida
Keys Area Health Education
Center Chief . Executive
Officer Michael Cunningham,
one of four new board mem-
bers selected by trustees.
"We're planning for it to
be here long into the future
with the best possible servic-
es," he said.
Realtor Bruce Schmitt,
who heads up the communi-
ty board's options commit-
tee, says the Marathon hos-
pital is pursuing multiple
strategies with a goal to
replace Health Management
Associates this summer.
HMA has been in place there


since 1986.
Schmitt said a request for
proposals "will definitely be
out in the next seven days."
Among options now being
explored:
*Leasing the hospital to a
full-time management com-
pany.
* Selling the hospital.
HMA has expressed interest
in this option.
* A partnership where the
community board runs the
hospital with another entity.
Said entity would have a
financial interest and respon-
sibility.
* Self-manage the hospi-
tal, but hire a company, to
bring in management to han-
dle day-to-day operations.
The board would ultimately
have financial responsibility
with this option.
"We as a board review
how it's done and set poli-
cy," Schmitt said of this
option.
, * Self manage the hospital
with management hired by
the community board itself.
Financial responsibility falls
to the board with this option
as well.
"We'deal with day-to-day
management of the hospital,
but [we'd] need help finding
managers," Schmitt said,
meaning the hospital would
hire a consultant to help


make the hires.
Schmitt said the commu-
nity board plans to host
workshops through the city
of Marathon to gain input
from residents using the hos-
pital.
"We haven't set dates, but
we'll hopefully start these in
the next 30 days," Schmitt
said. "We want a sense of the
community, how they want
the hospital to serve their
needs." #
In an attempt to bring a
fresh perspective, Schmitt

recently increased its ranks
from 13 to 17 members.
Longtime board President
Mary Schindler retains that
post.
"They're young, intelli-
gent and energetic. They put

"there is just no place for oil

Local marinas are

enough booms to protect the

DCA decision on planning,


Halioua says
he'll appeal
if changed OK'd
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon Planning Com-
missioner Claude Halioua
won't take possible change
to the board sitting down.
Halioua told the Keynoter
that should the state
Department of Community
Affairs approve a March 9
City Council decision to
allow each council member
to hand-pick members to the
planning board, he plans to
appeal. Currently, board
members are chosen based
on applications.
"I'm definitely going to
appeal that. I'm appealing
[that] they changed the super
majority to simple majority.
I'm just going to do it and
find out if I'm right or
wrong," he said.
Planning Director George

MARATHON


Garrett said a final order on
the proposed change is due
Thursday .from DCA.
"When we do any [land
development regulation] or
[comprehensive] plan
amendment, they do a final
order on anything, and that
has an appeal period.
Technically there's a 30-day
appeal period 'after that," he
said.
Halioua says he won't
appeal the way board mem-
bers are chosen, but a clause
in the law allowing the
council to remove a, plan-
ning commissioner by a 3-2
vote. Typically a 4-1, or
super majority' vote, is
required.
"If they had a super
majority, I would be OK, but
a simple majority, I don't
think it's right. If's always
the same three people that
vote the same way and the
other two stay on the other
side," Halioua said.
He declined to elaborate
on names, but is likely refer-
ring to Mayor Ginger Snead,


Vice Mayor Mike Cinque
and Councilman Dick
Ramsay. Councilman Pete
Worthington has openly crit-
icized the three for voting
together on many issues.
. "It's obvious. They're
changing everything" from
the Planning Commission to
Code Enforcement Board to
Beautification Committee,
Halioua said. "It doesn't
matter if I lose my seat; it's a
question -of integrity. If it
costs me my seat, I'm OK
with that."
Also uncertain of his
reappointment to the board
is Planning Commission
Chairman Larry Shaffer. He
said he's considering a run at
City Council', but not out of
spite.
* "It may feel like some
kind ,of revenge for not
appointing me to, the
Planning Commission, but,
that's not it. The reason I'm
on the Planning Commission
is I, wanted to serve the resi-
dents of Marathon," he said.

Republicans again


show their colors

Petty partisan politics
over PSC nominations
are now looking absurd

If you ever wonder how the political system
works in Florida, well, it doesn't. Witness the lat-
est party snub engineered by Republicans in the
Florida Senate.
In a petty political game of payback, GOP lead-
ers decided to reject Gov. Charlie Crist's two
appointees to the Public Service Commission.
Both were widely viewed as pro-consumer in stark
contrast to the two PSC members they replaced,
who left under a cloud when cozy ties between
regulators ahd state utility honchos were revealed
last year.
Even though Crist's appointees had been over-
whelmingly approved by a Senate committee and
were among six nominees sent by the PSC
Nominating Council to the governor, Senate lead-
ers decided it, was payback time.
Of course, the payback is all about Crist decid-
ing he would no longer compete in the August
Republican primary for the U.S. Senate seat.
Instead, in a much-anticipated press conference
last week, Crist announced he would run as an
independent in November.
The response from the GOP leadership in the
Legislature was predictable, if somewhat childish.
State GOP party chief John Thrasher's decision
to remove the governor's portrait from GOP head-
quarters in Tallahassee falls into that category,
especially after he lut the painting on eBay to
bring further humiliation to the apostate governor.
But taking this party pique to the next level -
and rejecting PSC commissioners just because Crist
nominated them - well, that's beyond the pale.
The Miami Herald Editorial Board weighed in
on this issue Monday. The headline on its editorial
was blunt and to the point: "Petty politics hurts
PSC consumers."
The evidence is stark. In January, Crist's two
nominees began serving while awaiting Florida
Senate confirmation.
The state's largest public utility, Florida Power
& Light, had proposed a rate increase of $1.3 bil-
lion to help underwrite system upgrades and
expansion. With new blood sitting on the PSC, that
huge rate hike was rejected in January for a mod-
est $75 million hike (equivalent to $1 per month
on the average FP&L power bill).
Now the process begins again with six nominees
being vetted and sent to the now lame-duck governor.
That means consumers lost two independent
voices on the PSC. And the Republican leadership
in Florida lost more credibility with voters, who
see politics drives the agenda in Tallahassee, not
common sense or the common good.

A complete disaster
I am watching this BP disaster
unfold, with the overwhelming feeling
that nothing that the government does
will make any difference. It's too lit-
tle, and it's way too late. The drilling
should never have been allowed to
begin with. We wait, with dread, as the
oil continues to gush out into the sea.
Those of us who opposed oil
drilling near coastal communities, and
live in coastal communities, know this
feeling of dread all too well.
We wonder why the White House
allowed a foreign company to get fed-
eral leases to drill without recognizing
that plans in place to ensure that this
would not happen were meaningless
- the risk of the consequences are too
great to take this risk.
No plans could address this. No assur-
ances from emergency planners were
worth anything. The question should have
always been: If it erupts, can it be stopped?
Since no one knew the answer, the drilling
should never have been allowed.
As we are seeing, days after the
eruption, still no one knows the answer,
and coastal communities, including, I
fear, mine may be destroyed as we wait
to find out if there is an answer. Maybe
there is no way to stop it.


We wonder why a contingency plan
was approved that did not contemplate
the possibility of a failure of equipment
(equipment manufactured by Cheney's
old company, Halliburton, of Iraq over-
billing fame). Didn't someone ask,
before approving the drilling applica-
tion, what will happen if things go
wrong? What will happen if the piece
of equipment that prevents millions of
gallons of oil from erupting from a mile
beneath the sea does not work?
Why didn't someone in the federal
government say no, you can't experi-
ment that way. The risk is simply too
great. Permit denied.
How many other emergency planners
have plans that don't take into consider-
ation the consequences of failure? How
many other emergency planners simply
tell us what they think we want to hear?
How many other emergency planners
resist questions that need to be asked?
How -are we supposed to continue
to have faith in emergency manage-
ment planners?
People living in coastal communi-
ties can only fear the future. We ask:
When hurricane season arrives in a
month, what will happen to the oil?

Thank a nurse
Every year during the week of May
6-12, we take the opportunity to cele-
brate our exemplary nursing staff. The
purpose of this National Nurses Week
is to raise public awareness about the
vital roles nurses play in meeting the
health-care needs of our community.
Nursing is a noble profession demand-
ing dedication, compassion and intelli-
gence. Our staff works tirelessly to en-
sure that we provide safe, quality patient
care. In order to meet our goals of safe,
quality care, our nurses are continually
pursuing additional education, training
and certifications in their specialty.
We receive letters and phone calls
weekly from former patients and their
families praising our nurses for the
excellent care that was provided dur-
ing their stay at Fishermen's Hospital.
It is with pride and gratitude that I
thank each of our nurses for their supe-
rior care and compassion, not just dur-
ing this Nurses Week, but every day.
, Please join me in thanking the
nurses in our community for their ded-
ication to keeping us healthy.

Effect change, run for office
I have written this letter many times
in my head so I am happy to finally
relieve myself of it and get it on paper.
Here it is, simply: Consider running for
public office. And to be specific, con-
sider running for a board position.
I had always said that the only office
I would ever run for was the Mosquito
Control Board because, as some of you
know, I have always been passionate
about the environment. I had concerns
about pesticides and had done research
on the topic and met with experts and
other concerned citizens. I also had
many years of business experience.
But it didn't matter. It didn't matter
for me and it didn't matter for other
qualified individuals who have tried.
So why am I suggesting you do it?
Because if I would have won, I would
have made a difference. I would have been
serving my community and truly repre-
sented the taxpayer. I listened during the
campaign and I had to expand my views,
but that is what public office is, and I
would have been a fresh, questioning,
interested and dedicated voice on a board
that hasn't heard a fresh voice for at least
a decade. I also would have been willing
and unafraid to challenge status quo.


Roberts, Charles Pellicer and
Everette Albury for sharing the sto-
ries of the 1935 hurricane and how
they survived. A thank you also to
Island Community Church for the
use of the church for our lectures,
the Matecumbe Historical Trust
board members who made this event
possible, our local media for all the

There is such a thing as board loyal-
ty. It is natural. Board members become
very comfortable with one another
meeting after meeting, year after year.
They become very comfortable with the
administrator who they probably them-
selves hired or at least approved and
who they approve raises for.
I don't mean to pick on just the
Mosquito Control Board (although in
my opinion, their perks are way over-
the-top excessive).
The truth is that not only does the
public not have the time to attend
board meetings and be up to date on
the topics, the topics are just not very
interesting to most., So often, board
members act in a vacuum without any
educated public input.
Please understand that I am not say-
ing that our board members are bad or
corrupt or inappropriate or incompetent
in any way. There are many wonderful
and dedicated people on public boards.
They have just been there too long.
So get out there and challenge
them. Throw your hat in the ring.
Trust me, you don't have to have a
business degree.

FLORIDA LEGISLATURE


Pending laws await Crist's signature


Lawmakers
are kept busy
during session
Associated Press

Legislation that passed
during the 2010 session of
the Florida Legislature,
which ended Friday, would:
* Require women seeking
an abortion in the first
trimester to pay for an ultra-
sound exam and view the live
image unless they can prove
they are victims of' rape,
incest or domestic abuse.
* Place on the ballot a
state constitutional amend-
ment to loosen class size lim-
its by requiring them on a
school average basis.
* Place on the ballot a
state constitutional amend-
ment sponsors say will clari-
fy, but opponents argue
would undermine, a pair of


citizen initiatives that would
curtail gerrymandering of
legislative and congressional
districts.
* Place on the ballot a state
constitutional amendment
that would bar Floridians
from being forced to obtain
insurance coverage, a meas-
ure inspired by the new feder-
al health care overhaul
although legal experts say it
cannot override federal law.
* Place on the ballot a
nonbinding straw poll asking
if the federal government
should balance its budget
without raising taxes.
* Exempt from sales tax
books, clothing, shoes, wallets
and bags costing less than $50
and school supplies costing
less than $10 during a three-
day back-to-school sales tax
"holiday" Aug. 13 to 15.
* Roll back an increase in
the unemployment compen-
sation tax paid by employers,
though that will mean bor-


rowing millions from the fed-
eral government to cover job-
less workers - money that
will have to be paid back in
the future.
* Give financial aid to the
ailing space industry and tax
breaks to the film and enter-
tainment industry and buyers
of yachts, aircraft and
machinery; offer a tax credit
to businesses for hiring job-
less workers.
* Reinstate parental
waivers that exempt theme
parks, go-cart tracks and
other businesses from liabili-
ty if their children are inured
after the Florida Supreme
Court had prohibited the
waivers because there was no
law allowing them.
* Make it harder to win
slip-and-fall lawsuits by
requiring a victim to prove a
business knew or should
have known a dangerous
condition had existed for a
sufficient time to have it


fixed or removed - or that it
was a foreseeable hazard.
* Crack down on rogue
debt collectors by making it
easier to regulate the industry
and increasing punishments.
* Bar sex offenders from
coming within 300 feet of
schools, day care centers,
parks and playgrounds and
prohibit them from wearing
Santa Claus suits or other
costumes attractive to chil-
dren while preventing the
state from labeling someone
a sex offenders for having
consensual sex with a minor
if there was less than a four-
year age difference between
perpetrator and victim.
* Tighten screening of
caregivers who work with
children; the elderly and dis-
abled to weed out convicted
criminals.
* Add homeless people to
the list of victims covered by
Florida's hate crimes law that
can result in increased penal-


ties for attacks.
* Require youth sports
coaches to undergo criminal
background checks.
* Require retailers to track
over-the-counter sales of
ephedrine, which can be used
to make methamphetamine.
* Require commercial
pain management clinics to
register with the state and let
only doctor's with special
training dispense controlled
substances.
* Ban the sale of smoking
pipes, bongs and other para-
* phernalia commonly used for
smoking illegal drugs as well
as tobacco except at stores that
mostly sell tobacco products.
* Expand a private school
voucher program for low-
income students supported
through business tax credits by
increasing its annual spending
cap, adding more revenue
sources and increasing the
value of each scholarship.
* Expand eligibility for


private school vouchers for
disabled students.
* Require middle-school
students to take a civics class
and pass an end-of-course test.
* Increase graduation
standards by requiring more
math and science and replac-
ing the Florida Comp-
rehensive Assessment Test,
or FCAT, for those subjects'
with end-of-course exams.
* Encourage, but not
require, school districts to
hold ceremonies, assemblies
or other academic scholar-
ship signing-day events to
match the hoopla that sur-
rounds the signing of college
scholarships by football play-
ers and other athletes
* Prohibit schools from

Keys company puts solar, wind



in neat little powerful package


By KAREN QUIST
kquist@keynoter.com

It's hard to miss the white
and blue wind turbine spin-
ning its way through the day
atop a low-slung office on
the bayside of Big Coppitt.
The turbine is one power-
producing part of what
Benson Electric Technologies
is calling its Green Energy
Pod. The other power pro-
ducer is a collection of photo-
voltaic panels pointed toward
the south, making the most of
a nearly cloudless and sunny
spring day.
And then there's the
repurposed 40-foot-by-80-
foot shipping container the
turbines and six solar arrays
- two PV modules each -
are sitting atop. It serves as
storage for the equipment
before installation and in
case of a hurricane, and it
can do double-duty as stor-
age for other stuff in
between. It's also home to
the equipment that makes
the whole system purr.
The pod is a self-con-
tained "renewable resource
energy device" that
Benson's. founder, master
electrician William Benson,
hopes will catch on with
some commercial business-
es in the Keys.
It's designed to produce
up to 5,000 watts per hour
from solar and wind energy,
which most likely will aver-
age out to about 30 kilowatts
a day. Adding wind to the mix
extends its capacity beyond
the six or so hours of daylight
a solar-only system draws in
optimum conditions.
The system has been con-
nected to the building's
Keys Energy Services meter.
Through the process
known as net-metering,
Benson estimates the solar-
wind system will lower the
building's electricity bill by
about $150 each month as
the renewable system offsets
the building's usage of tradi-
tional power.
Utility spokesman Julio
Barroso says Benson is the
first commercial, non-
governmental customer to
hook a solar system to Keys
Energy's grid.
Benson also has a smaller
version in mind, made up of

tainer, as well as ones that

The turbine he's using is

axis. It's supposed to do bet-
ter in turbulent wind and
reasonably well in low wind.
It's also very eye-catching,

CONSUMER PROTECTION


Seniors getting


more protection


State law deals
with annuities,
insurance
The Miami Herald
After three years of try-
ing, a law that would better
protect older Floridians
from several types of insur-
ance and annuities fraud
was passed by the Florida
Legislature.
In the past year, state
Chief Financial Officer
Alex Sink has opened near-
ly 500 investigations into
possible cases of financial
fraud that affect Florida
seniors and received more
than 2,400 complaints.
Although the proposals
have had support in the
state Senate, this was the
first year the bill she has
been pushing got a serious
look in the House.
The "Safeguard Our
Seniors" bill, if signed into
law by Gov. Charlie Crist,
would, among other provi-
sions:
* Increase penalties for
twisting or churning of
annuities, from $40,000 to
$75,000. Annuities are a
type of investment in which
customers pay a lump sum
up front to guarantee
income down the road.
Twisting happens when
an existing life insurance
policy or annuity contract
from one insurance compa-


ny is surrendered and the
money is used to buy
another annuity from a dif-
ferent company. Churning
is when an annuity is
switched within the same
insurance company. In
either case, the insurance
agent earns a commission
and there is no guaranteed
benefit to the consumer.
* Limit the period of a
surrender charge for an
annuity sold to consumers
65 or older to 10 years and
limit the surrender charge
to 10 percent. ;
* Extend the period of
time seniors have to review
- and cancel at no cost -
the purchase of an annuity
from 14 to 21 days.
* Require an insurer to
provide a cover sheet
attached to the policy when
an annuity is issued inform-
ing the purchaser about the
period of review, how to
contact the insurer and the
department if they have
questions about the annuity.
* Give the department
the ability to act against the
license of an agent who has
been disciplined under his or
her. securities broker-dealer
license or a related license.
+ Ban new licenses for
people whose license was
revoked because of the
solicitation or sale of a prod-
uct to a senior consumer.

(While PV systems
should be engineered to stay
in place during hurricane
winds, Benson says, owners
have to consider the damage
that windborne debris may
do the panels themselves.)
The turbine is on a
winch. The PV panels are
movable, making the system
more flexible than a tradi-
'tional rooftop installation.

on the Big Coppitt roof
would cost about $75,000,
he says, before applying any
federal or state tax credits,
rebates or other incentives.
His hope is to get that price
down as renewable energy
technology in general -
.and, he hopes, his concept in
particular - catches on.
"The time is right" to pur-
sue this kind of business ven-
ture, says Benson, explaining
why he's back at work after
retiring in 2006 after nearly
three decades doing electri-
cal work in the Keys. He
started working on the idea
about.a year ago at a friend's
suggestion, and just got it set
up on Big Coppitt last month.
He and his wife, Sarah,
have been splitting their
time between their home on
Sugarloaf and their home in
Costa Rica. Renewable
energy is common in Costa
Rica; in fact, the couple's
mountain vista includes a
wind farm, and the country
also regularly taps solar and
geothermal power sources.
Benson says he's apply-
ing for a federal stimulus
program grant that would
cover 30 percent of the cost


of a pod. The grant would be
in lieu of the federal tax
credit currently available for
renewable energy projects.
"A commercial client ...
would be able to get a check
from the U.S. Treasury in
lieu of a tax credit for 30 per-
cent of the total cost includ-
ing installation," he says.
"It's set up so that a business
can assign the credit to a
bank in repayment of a loan.
They get the check 60 days
after their application is
approved. The application is,
made after the pod is grid
connected, but if they start
the job in 2010, the have a
year or so to complete it."
A system would take a
few months to put together
and deliver, he says, with'
wind turbines taking up to
four months' lead time.
Solar-only could be done in
two or three.
With the turbine up, his
Big Coppitt installation - the
storage container is anchored
to the roof of the building -
reaches right up to the coun-
ty's 35-foot height limit.
Benson foresees a similar
installation for other bitsi-
nesses, or a couple of con-
tainers stacked on a commer-
cial property, possibly even'
helping to power a restau-
rant's energy-hungry coolers.
Benson's a big fan of the,
steel shipping containers,
which cost a few thousand
dollars each, depending on.
size and condition. There's a
huge, surplus available as,
close as South Florida's ports..
They're incredibly tough and
versatile, even being convert-'
ed to modular housing and
offices in some places.
While Benson hopes'
Keys residents appreciate the
energy package he's.
designed, he's quick to point
out that colleagues Kris,
Madro (Kristoff Electric,
Technologies) and John
Grodzinski (Unlimited
Electric Technologies) are
available for more traditional
installations. The two used to

all three are under one roof.

COMMERCIAL FISHING

Catch shares still a concern


Spiny lobster
and kingfish
top priorities
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com
Florida Keys commercial
fishermen are taking an
active role in a seafood-
industry effort to develop
economically acceptable
fishing rules.
February's United We
Fish protest rally in
Washington, D.C., made an
impression on federal rule
makers, said Marathon fish-
erman Tony larocci, "but
another protest isn't going to
work. We've got to find
common ground."
larocci chaired a seafood
industry conference in
Tampa on April 19 and 20 to
discuss regulatory issues
and ways to address them.
Catch shares, a system of
allocating each fishing oper-
ation a specific slice of a


fishery's allowable harvest,
was the topic of discussion.
"It's safe to say there is
overwhelming opposition to
catch shares among com-
mercial fishermen nation-
wide," said Bill Kelly, exec-
utive director of the-Florida
Keys Commercial Fisher-
men's Association:.
"The basis thrust of catch
shares is reduction of the
number of boats in the fish-
ing fleet," Kelly said. "In a
small coastal community,
that would be highly disrup-
tive to the local economy.
"These fishermen are
small businessmen who live
in an area where there prob-
ably are no other jobs avail-
able to them."
The two primary fish-
eries of concern to Keys
fishermen are spiny lobster
and kingfish, Kelly said.
"The lobster trap-reduc-
tion program has already cut
almost 50 percent of the traps
from the fishery," he said.
The mackerel fishery gen-
erally is acknowledged to be
one of the healthiest commer-


cial fisheries in the ocean,
Kelly said. Federal regulators
considering an increase in the
annual commercial mackerel
quota for the first time in
decades, he said.
In June, commercial fish-
ermen will gather in Orlando
for a meeting to, coincide
with the session of the feder-
al South Atlantic Fisheries
Management Council.
Federal law mandating
reductions in some fish har-
vests cannot be avoided,
said larocci, a former South
Atlantic council member.
"This stuff is coming so
we've got to be at the table
to make it better," he said.
"We all want to protect the
environment and habitats,
but in a way that doesn't
cost jobs."
Catch shares are used in
19 fisheries nationwide.
The South Atlantic and
Gulf of Mexico fishery
councils have yet to formal-
ly decide on whether to
adopt catch shares for waters
near Florida.

Legislation that failed to
pass or was vetoed during
the 2010 session of the
Florida .Legislature, which
ended Friday, would have:
* Placed on the ballot a
state constitutional amend-
ment that would have pro-
tected religious school
vouchers and other state-
funded faith-based programs
from legal attack by repeal-
ing a ban on state financial
aid to churches and other


religious organizations.
* Placed on the ballot a
state constitutional amend-
ment that would have
required a uniform account-
ing for state and local gov-
ernment funds by Florida's
chief financial officer.
* Placed on the ballot a
state constitutional amend-
ment that would have
changed the name of the
Department of Elderly
Affairs to Elder Affairs,
which the agency already
calls itself although that con-
flicts with the Florida
Constitution.
* Reduced penalties for
sexting - the practice of
sending or receiving nude or
pornographic photos by


computer, cell phone, or
other electronic devices -
for anyone under 18 so they
no longer would be labeled
as sex offenders for life.
* Made it easier to fire
teachers and linked their pay
to student test scores
(vetoed).
* Lifted a ban on offshore
drilling in Florida's state
waters, allowing rigs as
close as three miles from
shore on a temporary basis
and permanent platforms at
least six miles away.
* Created new pools of
campaign contributions con-
trolled by legislative leaders
(vetoed).
* Banned public release
of 911 emergency calls.

National Charter Schools

with a visit Monday from
Key West-based state Board
of Education member John
Padget to students at the
Montessori Elementary
Charter School.
He and Monroe County
School District Superinten-
dent Joseph Burke toured the
facility on United Street as
about 80 students in kinder-
garten through sixth grade ate
lunch After a visit to the Tropic
Cinema to watch "Oceans,"
the newest Disney film.
"Giving parents a choice
in the education of their chil-
dren is one of thp most
important things we can do to
ensure the academic success
for all students," Padget said.
He told students he lives in


the neigh-
borhood of
the school
and then
entertained
questions.

said, after raising his hand and
patiently waiting to be recog-

Padget said, laughing.
After this school year, the
Montessori school is set to
move into a School District-
.owned building, most likely
also on United Street, where
the district owns the May
Sands complex, Glynn
Archer Elementary, the Ruth
Hargrove Building and the
Reynolds School.
"Right now, because of the
flux the school system is in
with their planning, if we're
going to ask for anything, we
have to be flexible,"
Montessori President Todd
German told the Keynoter.
He addressed plans for
expansion, noting the imme-

diate goal is to accommodate
more kids in the K-6 program
before looking at adding sev-
enth and eighth glades.
"All the kids that want to
come to our school can't,"
German continued. "I think if
we had 20 more spots, we
could fill them easily. There's
been criticism about diversifi-
cation before, but I think
some people are reluctant to
put their names in the lottery
for the children if there's, a
good chance you may not get
picked. We hate that. That's
the biggest reason to expand."
On the topic of diversifi-
cation, to draw a comparison:
In the 2005-06 school year,
the Key West Montessori had
two "economically disadvan-
taged" students out of 62
total. At' Glynn Archer
Elementary, which is across
the street, there were 235 out
of 343 students so labeled,
according to district records.
"I think people do want
the choice," German said.
"From what I can see, it's
more of a philosophy.
There're no desks in any of
the classes. There's not one
time when the teacher gives a
presentation to the class. It's
very interactive; it's very tac-
tile. It's a whole different
way of thinking."
Both are free public
schools. The difference is the
charter school isn't tied to the
same rigorous curriculum stan-
dards and testing structures
imposed in traditional public
schools like Glynn Archer.
In that same 2005-06
school year, 85 percent of
Montessori students scored
three or better on, the writing
section of Florida's Comp-
rehensive Assessment Test.
At Glynn Archer, 90 percent
of students scored the same,
compared to 89 percent in the
entire district and 90 percent
statewide.
Miguel Perez, 31, is in his
first year teaching at the
Montessori School. Before
that, he worked for the dis-
trict in its ombudsman school
for troubled students.
"There's a definitely a
huge contrast in interest"
from both students and par-
ents, he said. "I can definite-
ly see a lot more involvement
with parents. It's much more
of a commitment."
Asked if he'd consider
going back to teaching in a
traditional public school,
Perez said, "Absolutely not."

FISHING THE FLORIDA KEYS

Grouper:


It's -what's for


dinner again


Sports & Outdoors. Fishing
Community . Lifestyle


-- - -- -


Reopening
of fishery
is strong
Rather sporty conditions
-5- to 8-foot seas - greeted
the opening of grouper season
on May 1. Nevertheless,
anglers got out and groupers
got'caught.
Reports flowed in of group-
er caught anywhere from 20
feet deep on the patches out to
100-plus feet. Many were
caught trolling plugs while
others were taken on live bait.
Mixed with the grouper are,
yellowtail snapper. Most aver-
age 16 to 18 inches, but there's.
also a good showing of flags
of more than 22 inches. There
are still plenty of mangrove
snapper on the patches and the
main reef. In the Middle Keys,
cut bait works for the 'tails,
while shrimp has been the hot
bait for the mangroves.
On the wrecks and artificial
reefs are good numbers of mut-
ton snapper and amberjack,
plus some rather large black
grouper. Live pinfish and pilch-
ards are working for the mut-
tons. The A.J.s and grouper are
munching larger live baits, such
as blue runners and grunts.
Permit are plentiful on the
high-profile artificial reefs.
They will readily eat small blue
crabs. As they are engaging in
their annual spawning ritual, it
is best to keep just one for the
table and release the rest.
Offshore, the dolphin fish-
ing has really turned on. There
are lots of schoolies, with plen-
ty of gaffers and slammers
mixed in. In the Middle Keys,
the bite has been relatively
close to the reef edge in the
300- to 600-foot depths at the
color change.
For whatever reason, there
have been multiple floaters in
the Gulf Stream of late. These
drifting treasure troves hold
not only dolphin, but tripletail
and wahoo, too.
To catch the wahoo, either
troll a plug past the debris or
drop a butterfly jig 150 feet
under it and reel toward the
surface as fast as possible.
Make sure your stinger hooks
are rigged with wire or you
will surely be cut off.
It's hard to beat a small
shrimpon a jig head to entice
the tripletail. If you have a
problem with ocean triggerfish
stealing your shrimp bait, try
this trick: Use a Berkeley Gulp
peeler crab in the 1- to 2-inch
size on a lightweight HookUp
Lures jig head. It takes the trig-
gerfish a bit of time to take the
crab, which allows the triple-
tail the opportunity to investi-
gate your offering.
Tripletail are well worth
the time and effort required
to catch them. They are deli-
cious. If you're targeting this
species for the, first time, be
sure to check the regs at
www.myfwc.com.
The tuna bite has been very
good at the humps, with abun-
dant fish in the 8- to 10-pound
range and a few approaching
20 pounds. Trolling or butter-
fly jigging are the best tactics
currently.
After a slow start, the tar-
pon bite is in full swing at the
bridges and channels.
The bridges in the Middle
Keys (Bahia Honda, Seven
Mile and Long Key) have real-
ly flourished in the last week or
so. I've received many reports
of fish ranging in size from 70Q
to 100 pounds - and some
well beyond. Morning and
evening outings are both pro-
ductive. Mullet and blue crabs
are the baits of choice, but more
than one tarpon has succumbed


to the temptation of a pinfish.
In the gulf and bay, gag
grouper are there for the taking,
with some approaching 15 to
20 pounds. They find live pin-
fish irresistible. Just remember,-
circle hooks are mandatory in
these waters. Decent numbers
of cobia and profuse amounts
of spawning permit are present
in the same areas.
Sharks of an impressive
size are attracted to the tar-
pon and permit.
If you are yearning for a
knockdown, drag-out fight, give
sharking a try. Most often, you
will encounter hammerhead and
bull sharks. But every now and
then, you will come across a
few outsized tiger sharks. You'll
need 50-pound stand-up gear
for these beasts. Slabs of bonito
or jack crevalle will elicit a
feeding frenzy in the waters sur-
rounding your boat.
Lemon and blacktip sharks
are biting on the flats. All of the
sharking activity will intensify
as the waters continue to warm.

This week's best
Here's what the charter
captains from Marathon to
Key West have been catching
this'week.
Capt. Dave Schugar of
Sweet 'Enuf Charters out of
Castaway Restaurant in Mara-
thon fished a group from Germ-
any last week prior to the open-
ing of grouper season. They
caught a bunch of grouper up to
29 pounds, all vented properly
and released back to the bot-
tom. He also got blackfin tuna
from 10 to 20 pounds, which
his clients enjoyed as fresh
sashimi back at Castaway.
On another trip, Schugar
took Jody and his girlfriend
from Fort Myers oceanside and
caught tuha, mutton snapper and
a bonus 35-pound almaco jack.
Capt. Jeff Shelar, of Catch-
em-All Charters out of Captain
Pip's Marina in Marathon,
reports catching lots of schoolie
dolphin in the 5-,to 8-pound
range, with a few gaffers and
slammers thrown in for good
measure. Inshore, he caught
countless numbers of snapper.
Shelar's catch of the week
goes to David Faan from Van-
couver, British Columbia, who
caught a 160-pound, 76-inch long
tarpon at the Seven Mile Bridge.
Fishing on the Pip's 36 out
of Captain Pip's Marina, Ryan
Brewer from Bartow, Fla.,
caught a 25-pound dolphin with
Capt. Bob Crockett and mate
John Wycoff. Brewer's crew -
Steve Wooten, Michael Wingle-
wich, Stephen Wooten and Ray
Wooten - brought in 9 smaller
schoolies, as well. All fish were
caught in less than 300 feet of
water. The 25-pounder was
caught under birds on one of
Crockett's homemade lures.
Yellowtail snapper and
grouper kept the SeaSquared
anglers busy on the reef last
week, while one group chose
to do battle with toothy crit-
ters back in the bay.
Visiting from Ontario, Rich-
ard Mann and his sons, Alex
and Nicholas, caught seven
large 'tails and lost at least 40
others to the bull sharks. They
also caught three cobia - two
shorts and one keeper of about
25 pounds - on 12-pound yel-
lowtail gear.
Another group from Canada
- Chris and Jackie Jones,
Justin Panagapko and Amanda
Tymchuck, all from Winnipeg,
Manitoba - caught tons of yel-
lowtails and kept 30 in the 14-
inch class. We had some gar-
gantuan fish in the slick but lost
them all to the sharks.

spring practice


Young team
has plenty of
shoes to fill
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon High
School football team began
the process of filling some
sizeable shoes Saturday.
The Dolphins began
spring practice with what
Lance Martin said is his
youngest roster since 2006.
That's when a crop of quality
seniors graduating next
month were just coming into
their own.
"We're young," Martin
said when asked how the
team looks early on. "We
were really young then. We
finished up 6-4 and part of
the reason we did so well is
we had some good senior
leadership, especially out of
Adam Ross."
Ross' younger brother,
Nyran, finished his accom-
plished career with the
Dolphins this year. He's just
one of several outgoing
Dolphins whose positions
will be filled by much


younger players.
"We have a couple kids
with potential to be leaders,"
Martin said, pointing out sen-
iors-to-be Justin Kometti,
Austin , Carlson, Matt
McKeon and Shane Dipaolo.
Martin said Kometti and
Dipaolo might combine to
replace Ross at quarterback.
"We'll see what happens,
we may use both. Justin ...
was one of the backups last
year at quarterback, so he's
ahead in knowing the
offense, but Shane is just a
tremendous athlete' and run-
ner," he said.
The defensive line will
need some serious retooling,
as well, with senior Thomas
Ryan headed .off to play
Division I football at
Vanderbilt University. Six-
foot-6-inch interior lineman
Travis Leachman is also
graduating.
Martin said the line will
be replenished with upper-
classmen in Doniel Esquirol-
Lopez, Austin Carlson, John
Milo and Manny Chiari.
But most of the team is
young, and spring practice
will focus on fundamentals.

named winners of the Frank
Rathke Sportsmanship Award,
presented by South Florida
lacrosse referees.
The honor is decided on
the sportsmanship shown by
players and coaches, on and
off the field.
"Their players are well-
behaved, courteous and gener-
ally pleasant to each other,
coaches, opponents and ump-
ires," wrote one official.
"They will work hard to win


but are respectful and con-
trolled when not victorious.",'
Said another, "I don't
think there are too many
others like [Coral Shores
lacrosse director] Mark Hall
who put as much effort into
making sure the visiting
team is welcome at their
school."
Coral Shores had its most
successful lacrosse season
this spring, with the girls
winning a district champi-
.onship and the boys finishing
as state district runner-up.

Jason caught on Gigi's rod.
The following day, Melissa

rather choppy bay waters.
They were all in the 6-foot
range.

Mottice spent the week catch-
ing and releasing tarpon in
and around Key West Harbor.
Mixed in were sharks of all
variety, mangrove and yel-
lowtail snapper,. big jack
crevalle, Spanish- and cero
mackerel and several lady-
fish.


Mottice made it offshore
on one charter and caught
two big dolphin and a couple
of bonitos. He missed a large
hammerhead shark that bit
off a ballyhoo on mono.
Capt. Marlin Scott reports
the offshore waters of Key
West are teeming with life,
including mating loggerhead
turtles. He advises caution
when approaching the tur-
tles, as they are too pre-occu-
pied to get out of your way.
Scott says hammerhead
sharks are a constant on virtual-
ly every trip to the edge and the
color change. On the, reef, the
yellowtails are getting mugged
by large amberjack. Not a great
tradeoff unless you're in for a
long battle on light tackle.
As always, the waters of the
Florida Keys offer a multitude
of fishing opportunities so get
out there and enjoy it. If you
have a report you'd like to con-
tribute, please e-mail it to us.

It enables

give, conserve
A nonprofit group in the
Keys needs, patio furni-
ture. Another is looking
for frozen corn. And a
third could use paper tow-
els.


In fact, local nonprofit
groups have a laundry lis
S of many common- item:
they need, some on a regu
lar basis. At the same time
many residents have these
.very things, some of then
destined for the trash, bu
don't know where or t(
whom to donate them.
Now a new local Wel
site created by Marathoi
resident Michael- Welber
has been launched tha
seeks to match what peo
ple might have in storage
with what nonprofit
groups require.
Called www.Keysreuse
.com, the site lists nearly]
100 different things, fron
household cleaning pro
ducts to office supplies t<
appliances that cash


strapped groups require.
Much of this stuff might
be in storage closets, lying
unused in drawers, or even
in trash, bins waiting for
pickup.
"Whether you have old
sheets and towels or a dis-
carded computer monitor,
a musical instrument your
child no longer plays or a
bulletin board stored in a
box somewhere, there's
, probably a nonprofit
group in the Keys that can
put it to good use," Welber
says. "Keysreuse.com en-
sures that your posses-
sions will now be reused
and not end up in the land-
fill or incinerated. Plus,
it's a great way to help
these organizations during
tough times."
Keysreuse.com will be
updated on a regular basis
as additional nonprofits
are added or those items
that are listed are no
longer needed.
Any local nonprofit that
wants to be added to the
site should contact Welber
at michael.welber@gmail

GENEALOGY

Searching for family


history easier than ever


For some, it's
a hobby; others,
an obsession

McClatchy-Tribune

The question, as old as
humanity, has never seemed
more urgent or answerable:
Where did I come from?
It's a given that. much of
who we are is determined by
our ancestors. What were their
countries of origin? When
they arrived in , America,
where did they settle? What
were their occupations?
Whom did they marry? How
did they live and die? What
genes did they pass on to us?
Genealogists agree: The
search for ancestral identity
is more popular than ever.
Some even say researching
the drama of our pasts is the
fastest-growing hobby in
this nation of immigrants,
fueled by the scope and
speed of the World Wide
Web. For most, it's a hobby;
for some, an obsession.
"Some people think of
genealogy as just a family
tree, but it's a lot more," said


Bernard Marks, the resident
genealogist at the Sacramen-
to, Calif., Central Library.
"It's history, a lot of detec-
tive work and a mystery that
gives you the feeling of
wanting to really find out."
Raising the subject's pro-
file are two celebrity-driven
TV shows devoted to tracing
ancestry. NBC's "Who Do
You Think You Are?" and
PBS' more cerebral "Faces
of America.
Numerous organizations
and companies are eager to
support amateur genealo-
gists, either for free or for a
fee. Some sell research tools
(maps, birth and death certifi-
cates, census reports, military
records), computer software
and instruction. One compa-
ny even offers a cheek-swab
DNA test for $149.
The biggest family history
resource on 'the Web is
wwW.ancestry.com, which
maintains a digitized library of
4 billion records, said spokes-
woman Heather Erickson.
"Family history can take
you on the journey of a life-
time, which not long ago
would have meant literally
traveling to locations around


the world," she said. "Today
it's amazing what you can
learn about your ancestors
by digging online."
At the Oakland, Calif.-
based California Genealo-
gical Society, marketing
director Kathryn Doyle said,
"Pretty much everybody in
the genealogical world is see-
ing an uptick in website visits,
attendance at seminars and
classes, and visits to libraries.
It's good news all around."
Why? "As we get older,
we start realizing the impor-
tance of family more than
we do when we're younger.
Also, with retirement, peo-
ple have more time," Doyle
said. "But there are a lot of
younger people who are
interested [because] the TV
shows are bringing genealo-
gy to awareness. They make
history come alive."
Name spellings are critical.
In the past, spellings were
commonly altered when coun-
tries were occupied or their
citizens emigrated. "Name
spellings were constantly
changing," Marks said. "Most
people who came to this coun-
try changed their names as'
soon as they got off the boats."

TO YOUR HEALTH


How many calories do you


want with those fries?


Menu labeling
gains steam

with new law

McClatchy-Tribune

Would it surprise you to
kno% that :, cnsps chicken


trade secrets
- you can find them on the
restaurants' Web sites - but
in the next few years, they will
start showing up on their
menus, as well, thanks to a
small provision in the massive
health-care law President
Obama signed last month.
The new rule, which
applies to restaurant chains
with 20 or more locations,
won't formally kick in for at
least a year. But consumer
advocates say it could be a
powerful weapon in the battle
against obesity, simply by
allowing consumers to see
how many calories they're eat-
ing when they dine out.


"Right now, when coffee
drinks can range from 20 calo-
ries to 800 calories and even
hamburgers can range from
250 calories to over 1,000,
people have no idea what
they're eating," said Mary
Story, a nutritionist and obesi-
ty expert at tlhe


University of Minnesota. "I try
not to eat out. It's just too easy
to gain weight."
Where menu labeling is in
effect, there's already evi-
dence that it's having an effect.
In New York City, which
passed the first such law in
2008, restaurants have
trimmed the calorie content of
some of their most popular
items, and consumers have
shaved off some of the calories
they order at each sitting.
Some restaurant dhains,
too, have found ways to light-
en their fare. McDonald's, for
example, shaved 70 calories
from a large order of fries, and


Dunkin' Donuts cut 130 calo-
ries from a glazed donut.
Even the'restaurant indus-
try, which initially fought the
idea, has endorsed the new
menu requirement.
Consumers, though, seem to
have mixed' reactions.
However, con-


summer advocate Margo
Wootan, who campaigned for
the new rule, shrugs off the
nanny-state accusations.
"We're not trying to tell
anybody what to eat," said
Wootan, director of nutrition
policy for the Center for
'Science in the Public Interest
in Washington. "We're just
trying to ensure that informa-
tion is available."
On average. Wootan notes,
Americans eat out four meals
a week and consume a third of
their calories dining out. In the
war against obesity, that
makes this a key battlefield.
"There are few other places


where, in a split-second deci-
sion without much sacrifice,
you can cut hundreds, even
1,000 calories, from your
diet," she said.
In practice, the results aren't
always that dramatic. In 2009,
a year after New York City's
law took effect, only about half
'o luinch-hour u'ltomier said


ever,



calories,
about 106 fewer than those
who didn't, a survey showed.
Many chains might tweak
their menus, but they will do
it selectively, said Dennis
Lombardi, an industry con-
sultant with WD Partners in
Ohio. "Don't expect the
Whopper to be reformulat-
ed," he said. But salads with
fattening dressings might get
an overhaul. And new low-
calorie products might make
their debut to try to balance
the menu offerings, he said.
"People are still going to
eat out," Wootan said.
"They're just, hopefully, going
to eat a little differently."

babies start right

The National Healthy Moth-
ers, Healthy Babies Coalition
has launched Text4baby, a free
mobile information service that
provides pregnant women and
new moms with information to
help them care for their health
and give their babies the best
start in life.
Women who sign up for the
service 'by texting BABY to
511411 (or BEBE for Spanish)
will receive free text messages
each week, timed to their due
date or baby's date of birth.
The messages focus on a
variety of topics critical to mater-
nal and child health, including
birth-defects prevention, immu-
nization, nutrition, seasonal flu,
mental health, oral health and safe
sleep. Text4baby messages also con-
nect women to prenatal and infant
care services and other resources.
