We warned the legislators there would be problems. Sawyer and Leon County Elections Supervisor Ion Sancho have asked the federal courts to allow them to intervene in the legal fight over the most controversial elements of Floridas new elections law. The American Civil Liberties Union and Project Vote joined citizens, two lawmakers and the two elections supervisors last week in asking to be allowed to fight the law in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. Several of the election changes adopted by the Legislature will limit voter turnout and threaten the right of voters, including AfricanAmericans in Monroe County and other ethnic and language-minority voters, Sawyer wrote in a statement to the ACLU. This wont cost the taxpayers of Monroe County a dime, Sawyer said of the ACLU challenge. My intent is more along the lines of providing expert information on the impact of the new process on voters. The new elections law, passed by the Legislature in the spring, includes provisions that would reduce the number of early-voting days and impose stricter rules for voter-registration drives and change-of-address limits on voting days. Monroe County has special standing in statewide voting issues, since Monroe is one of five Florida counties determined to have violated sections of the Voting Rights Act in the past. As a result, any voting changes that affect Florida Keys voters must receive preclearance from either the U.S. Department of Justice or the federal courts, ensuring that segments of the electorate will not suffer discrimination.State tries to bypass Justice to get more restrictive law approvedPOLITICSCharter schoolspopularity growsThis year saw the opening of two new charter schools in the Florida Keys and the expansion of two others.That means of the 8,243 students served by the Monroe County School District, nearly 12 percent of them, 983 students, attend one of the six charter schools.New this year is the Key West Collegiate School, operating on the campus of Florida Keys Community College; and in Tavernier, the Ocean Studies Charter School.At the Big Pine Academy, students can for the first time progress into the seventh grade, and Executive Director Cathy Hoffman said plans are to add eighth grade in the next school year.Its the same story at the Montessori Elementary School of Key West. Classes expanded to include sixth grade for this school year and Principal Lynn Barras said to look for the addition of kindergarten and seventh and eighth grades in coming years.The shift in enrollment from traditional schools and propagation of charter schools is not unique to the Keys; school districts statewide have received nearly 40 percent more charter applications this year than the previous year, topping moreDemographic differences a big concernBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS Dredging costs likely to reach into millionsMost of Monroe Countys 481 canal systems 111 miles all told were dredged between 40 and 60 years ago. But lack of attention paid since then to sedimentation and weed buildup has left many of the canals on the verge of being non-navigable. And, according to Rich Jones, the countys senior marine resources administrator, the lack of routine maintenance over the years is catching up with communities up and down the Keys. Jones discussed the growing problem with the Monroe County Commission Aug. 17, which instructed him to research the issue and bring back possible funding options at a later date.In a memo to the commission, Jones said maintenance dredging costs are typically in the hundreds of thousands of dollars per canal. He told the Keynoter the cost would be in the millions Keyswide.Further complicating the issue are stringent regulations regarding the permitting of maintenance dredging, as well as significant mitigation fees often associated with dredging projects, Jones wrote. The discussion was spurred by requests for county Boating Improvement Funds to pay for dredging. Jones said the fund has roughly $600,000 through state recreational vessel registrations. The money is used for replacing channel and regulatory markers, removing derelict vessels, pump-out services, and reimbursing city costs. For example, in July, Marathon asked for $120,000 to upgrade the Boot Key Harbor mooring field.

After a bit of a struggle with deputies to get her out of harms way, the 32-year-old was taken to Lower Keys Medical Center and said shed been on a cocaine binge, says the Monroe County Sheriffs Office, which is deciding whether to file charges. Deputy Becky Herrin says deputies Geni Hernandez and Jaime Miranda arrived at the scene around 2:15 p.m., finding a crowd of people around the El Mocho Restaurant, along with the woman in the street. As they approached her, she was crawling on her hands and knees as vehicles swerved to avoid hitting her, Herrin said. At one point, she rolled onto her back and spread her legs; she then continued crawling around.She fought with Hernandez and Miranda when they tried to get control of her, but when paramedics arrived, they all were able t get her restrained on a stretcher.After the ambulance took her away, traffic opened up.Shes sprawled in the middle of Maloney AvenueSTOCK ISLANDBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com Photo courtesy SARA MICHAELThe approach channel to Bud n Marys Marina in Islamorada is one of many Keys waterways in dire need of dredging.

than 340 requests.Superintendent Jesus Jara said that when he came to work for the Keys schools system as chief operating officer in January 2010, he immediately noticed the unusually high number of charters.For me, Jara said, giving parents the choice and the opportunity, thats fine. They are public schools and theyre doing well. My concern, as weve seen a decrease in an enrollment in our schools, is a minor allocation switch. Charter schools are funded by the state with the same per-student allocation of money that goes to traditional public schools; the money is dispersed by the local school district, the coffers of which retain a 5 percent administration fee that pays for things like training and computer software.So charter schools in the Keys received $6,272,031.63 from the district, which kept their 5 percent, totaling $313,601.58.Jara identified another concern that goes along with an increase in charter schools: Demographics. Districtwide, including charter schools, Asian, black and Hispanic students make up 43.8 percent of the student population; thats 3,607 students. At just the charters, minus Ocean Studies, which couldnt provide the data, 22 percent are Asian, black and Hispanic; thats 208 students out of 943 total. At the Montessori Elementary School of Key West, of the 104 students, only 13 (12.5 percent) identify themselves as Asian, black or Hispanic. Just a few blocks down United Street at Glynn Archer Elementary, a traditional public school, 250 of the 350 students are Asian, black or Hispanic; that comes out to 71.4 percent. Up the Keys at Treasure Village Montessori, 33 of the 206, 16 percent, are Asian, black or Hispanic; compare that to 45 percent, or 408 out of 906, at Key Largo School. Both schools serve students from kindergarten to grade eight. Id like to start looking at the demographics and start making sure they are the demographics of all the schools, Jara said. Another issue: School Board Chairman John Dick said a reduction in traditionally enrolled students should prompt a corresponding reduction in administrators and central office staff. We dont provide most services to these [charter] schools, he said. They do their own budgeting, their own payroll, they handle a lot of that stuff. Why would we need to maintain the same central office staff if we have all the students we were providing service to going to charters? Dick and Jara say theres a need to continue to improve Keys schools, and communicate those improvements to parents.

Spokeswoman Alyson Crean says that about 11:30 p.m. Thursday, witnesses reported seeing two scooters driving recklessly near the West Isle Apartments on Duck Avenue. When officers arrived, they found one scooter on the pavement, and Jeffrey Allen Geraghty, 41, next to it.He was airlifted in critical condition to the Ryder Trauma Center in Miami and has since had his condition upgraded to stable, Crean said.We have a suspect, but the case remains under investigation, she said.Keys mans body found along U.S.1.No foul play is suspected in the death of a Key Largo man whose body was found on the side of U.S. 1 Saturday morning, says the Monroe County Sheriffs Office.

Since October 2004, coalition staff has managed the Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter on the grounds of the Monroe County Sheriffs Office headquarters on Stock Island. It can house up to 150 people. Its open daily from 6 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. Drugs and alcohol arent allowed on the property. Last week, coalition Executive Director Stephen Braddock put city officials on notice that, per terms of the management contract, his group is bowing out effective Oct. 1. We sent a request to Father Braddock about extending that 30 days to 90, Mayor Craig Cates said, and they said this was nonnegotiable. Theyre just walking away in 30 days, which is pretty surprising. I just dont understand it. Cates said he has instructed City Manager Jim Scholl to prepare a request for proposals to be advertised to prospective service providers. The city budgets about $400,000 each year to keep KOTS running.Scholl said his goal is to keep the facility open while looking for a new provider; he also said no city staff would be used to replace the 10 KOTS staffers that are leaving.Well make whatever transition we need to make, Scholl said. Not to the city per say, no, but that doesnt mean we cant get an interim operation or look at proposals for another long-term operator.Aletter circulated on Monday by Braddock and FKOC Chairman Samuel Kaufman says theres a difference between the mission of the FKOC and recently announced initiatives being championed by Mayor Cates.Those include the deployment of a modified recreational vehicle that would visit homeless people in the field, giving them access to medical and social services. The FKOCs goal is to transition people permanently out of homelessness. Also in play is a lawsuit filed this month by the Sunset Marina Condominium Association, which comprises residents adjacent to KOTS. Represented by attorney Bart Smith, Sunset homeowners claim the shelter was built in violation local landuse, zoning and density laws, as well as state and federal environmental permitting regulations.The lawsuit may have been a sort of a catalyst for KOTS, which is named in the suit, pulling out, Scholl said.AJanuary 2011 survey conducted by the Southernmost Homeless Assistance League indicated there are 246 homeless living in Key West.Coalition: Were pulling out Oct.1By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYAfter a summer filled with hiring teachers,arranging classroom space and enrolling students,Key West Collegiate School,a public charter,welcomed 42 high school students on Aug.22,and on Tuesday pupils were taking a pop quiz. Deputy cited in fatal crashAMonroe County Sheriffs Office deputy involved in a fatal crash in May has a mandatory court date of Sept. 26 to answer a charge of careless driving resulting in death. Florida Highway Patrol Cpl. Donavon Hanson charged Deputy Scott Ward, 38, on Aug. 1, though the agency just released the information on Monday. The FHPsays that about 7:40 a.m. May 29, North Huntington, Pa., resident Randall Graft, 54, was driving a small electric car south on U.S. 1 at mile marker 2 and that Ward, 38, was driving his 2010 Ford police car behind him. The front of Wards cruiser hit the rear of Grafts electric car, tossing Graft from his vehicle. Stock Island emergency responders arrived and Graft was taken by via TraumaStar air ambulance to the Ryder Trauma Center in Miami, where he later died. Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said Ward was en route to work at the time of the crash and that any disciplinary action would be decided following an internal investigation. Ward is scheduled to appear before traffic hearing officer Joseph Albury at the Freeman Justice Center in Key West.FHP:Careless driving led to fatalityLOWER KEYSKeynoter StaffDeep-water grouper ban might be liftedAban on bottom fishing for some types of grouper in deep waters off the Florida Keys should be lifted, a federal fishery council says.The South Atlantic Fisheries Management Council voted Aug. 9 to seek the end of the ban that prohibits fishing for many types of grouper and snapper in waters below 240 feet.The rule is now listed in the South Atlantic SnapperGrouper Fishery Management Plan. The ban remains in effect unless U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke signs regulations eliminating; that should happen before the end of the year, a council spokeswoman said. The regulation was implemented in January to help protect speckled hind and Warsaw grouper. The rule also bans fishing for deepwater snowy grouper, blueline tilefish, yellowedge grouper, misty grouper, queen snapper and silk snapper. If the rule is lifted, Warsaw grouper and speckled hind could be taken as bycatch, since they would likely would not survive if released after being reeled up from deep water, managers said. Council members agreed to seek the change to the rule after considering public testimony on the economic impacts of the restriction, along with new data indicating the closure may not effectively minimize bycatch.FISHINGTwo cited for saving infants lifeAMarathon woman accused of attempting to kill a 2-month-old girl two weeks ago remained behind bars in lieu of $200,000 bond on Tuesday, and questions remained about her motives.However, the police report in the case of Elizabeth Garcia, 19, shows that the baby possibly would be dead had it not been for the interference of two people who grabbed the child as she was about to strike it with a piece of concrete.The Monroe County Sheriffs Office says investigators from the state Department of Children and Families called the Sheriffs Office Friday afternoon to report they had video of Elizabeth Garcia trying to hit the infant in the head with a rock. How they got the video isnt spelled out in the report.The attack allegedly took place at the Ocean Breeze trailer park on Aug. 18. The report says the video shows Garcia holding the child in her right hand and the palmsize piece of concrete stone in her left.She started arguing with someone the report doesnt say who and then yelled, I dont care, no one is going to get her. Then someone says to her, You are going to give her to me, either way good or bad. With that, Orlando and Alexis Mendoza approached Garcia on each side in an attempt to gain custody of the child civilly, immediately. Garcia takes the concrete stone in her left hand and attempts to strike the infant in the face and is stopped in the act by Alexis and Orlando while in motion as she brings her left hand down forcefully in the direction of the childs face.Garcia finally dropped the rock and the child was taken from her arms.If not for the quick actions of Orlando and Alexis Mendoza, this investigator believes the childs life would have been lost, Investigator Jason Madnick wrote.The Sheriffs Office says that on the same date the incident with the baby took place, deputies responded to a call at Garcias home. During that call, Garcia reportedly pulled a knife during a confrontation with the deputies and was arrested.Cops:Woman tried to hit child with rockMIDDLE KEYSKeynoter Staff GARCIABy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com

State marine officers lodged charges of illegal lobstering Friday against seven people in two separate Middle Keys incidents.Four crewmen aboard the commercial lobster boat Whatever from Everglades City were charged with tampering with evidence and interfering with officers, in addition to possession of undersized lobster, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.FWC Officer Joshua Peters said he approached the 41-foot boat as it worked a trapline in the gulfside north of Bahia Honda around 9 a.m. Friday. Peters, on an unmarked patrol boat, said he was concerned the lobster boats buoy colors did not appear to match the color on the trap buoys. The lobster boat then turned hard and started accelerating toward Big Spanish Channel. As I got within 20 to 30 yards of the vessel, one of the ... crew mates began dumping a large wooden crate full of whole-body Florida spiny lobsters from the starboard stern, he reported.Despite activating his boats police lights and ordering the vessel to halt, Peters said, The captain then began to sharply turn his vessel in a zigzag motion and increase his vessels speed as crewmen dumped four boxes of lobster over the side.After the boat stopped, several FWC officers arrived and went snorkeling in the 15-foot depths, visibility clouded by storms, in an attempt to recover the dumped catch. They found four lobsters. Asearch of the boats remaining catch of 355 lobsters found 17 to be undersized. The catch was sold in Marathon, with the proceeds put in trust pending outcome of the criminal case. Boat captain William J. Louwsma, 55; and mates Dylan L. Campbell, 35; Jonathan R. Hylbert, 27; and Vincent L. Brown, 41, all of Everglades City, were booked into county jail. At press time Tuesday, they remained in custody in lieu of $155,000 bond on each defendant.Night arrestAt 8 p.m. Friday, officers using a night-vision camera spotted a boat without lights engaged in what appeared to be suspicious activity off Sunshine Key, at the south end of the Seven Mile Bridge.When confronted on the docks at the Sunshine Key Resort, boat operator Carlos J. Infante, 41, of Miami, reportedly jumped off the stern into the water. Passengers Angel Vigoa, 58, of Palm Springs and Gustavo Rodriguez, 53, of Miami were taken into custody along with Infante. They were charged with possession of 53 undersized lobster and 49 wrung tails on the water, plus possessing three whole stone crabs.Officers noted the men are not licensed trappers, and did not have any bully nets or snorkel gear to fish for lobster.All three were booked into county jail. mission OKd $50,000. Key West has requested roughly $30,000 to dredge a portion of Sunrise Canal, which feeds into Riviera Canal. Its at Riviera Drive and 19th Street. There was general agreement by the [commission] of staffs suggestion that it would be an appropriate expenditure and that they might anticipate an interlocal agreement to come before them if the work is performed by Key West, Jones said.Amuch larger request came from Richard Stanczyk, owner of Bud n Marys Marina in Islamorada. He asked the county to dredge the approach channel leading to his business.Stanczyk told the Keynoter he began having issues with the channel depth after a series of bad storms in 2005, including hurricanes Rita and Wilma. It had an operating depth of about 8 feet. Weve had a series of storms and stuff washed into the channel. Now we have areas of that channel where the operating depth is about 3.5 feet, he said.Stanczyk said about 45 captains and other employees make a living fishing out of his oceanside marina. He said during extreme low tides, at least three boats cant get in or out of the channel.This particular area, we have a title called Sportfishing Capital of the World. If you lose the working waterfront, youre not just losing that; you lose a lot of your economic engine, he said.Key Colony Beach Commissioner John DeNeale spoke during the County Commission discussion in August. He said that city has a number of canals that require dredging after roughly 60 years.We dont want to spend taxpayer money if we dont have to. It puts us in a Catch22. Any partnering we can do with the county we certainly appreciate, he said. Wednesday,August 31,2011 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com LABOR DAY WEEKEND IS YOUR CHANCE TO SAVE UP TO 70% OFF SUMMER FASHIONS!

Sawyer is a Republican, the party that holds a majority in both houses of the Florida Legislature. Ive always been very clear about my stand on this law, Sawyer said. This is for the voters. Its not about politics. Sawyer said legislators contend the new rules will reduce voting fraud, but the changes are more likely to discourage eligible citizens from voting. Monroe County has five early voting sites, one of which is in an AfricanAmerican neighborhood, he said in his statement. In the 2008 general election, 27 percent of Keys voters voted early, and nearly 8 percent of Keys registered voters voted early in the November 2010 general election. Limiting early voting options is a dangerous path which will only make it more difficult to vote. Monroe County was designated as a Section 5 county in 1975, when local officials did not publish ballots in Spanish despite having a single-language minority [that] constituted more than 5 percent of the citizens of voting age, according to Justice. Those issues have long since been corrected, Sawyer said, but being removed from the designation is one of the most difficult things in the world. Elected officials joining the suit with Sawyer are state Sen. Arthenia Joyner and Rep. Janet Cruz, both Tampa Democrats.Sawyer joins elections suitFrom Elections,1ANEWS BRIEFSPill-mill database goes live ThursdayFloridas long-debated prescription drug database will start taking effect Thursday, with pharmacies and other providers required to report information about dispensing controlled substances such as OxyContin and Xanax.Providers will be required to submit information within seven days of dispensing the targeted drugs. Ultimately, the database will be used to help flag potential drug abusers.On Aug. 23, a Key Largo doctor was among 32 people indicted for participating in a $40 million pill-mill operation in Broward and Palm Beach counties. Also, the Florida Department of Health announced this week that a public health emergency over prescription drugs has been lifted. Surgeon General Frank Farmer imposed the emergency July 1 after it was included in the bill that lawmakers passed this spring to try to crack down on unscrupulous pill mills.

EDITORIALPartisanship hurts job growthLETTERS TO THE EDITORCity taking over KOTSFor 20 years, the Florida Keys Outreach Coalition has been providing homeless individuals and families with the resources and opportunities by which to attain residential, financial and personal stability and self-sufficiency. Our highly successful transitional housing offers solution-oriented, holistic, multiphase programs that have always been at the very heart of the FKOC mission. The FKOC assumed the day-to-day operations of the Key West-established Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter on Stock Island seven years ago. We believe that providing for the basic human needs of the most vulnerable and needy individuals in our community is morally imperative and essential to the quality of life of our fellow citizens and visitors. Life-sustaining services for people who are homeless, such as food pantries, emergency shelters and soup kitchens, must be available and accessible. FKOC understands the tremendous strain the chronically homeless population places upon the limited resources of our small community, including law enforcement, emergency medical services, social services, medical and mental health-care providers, public works, etc. However, the goals of census reduction and permanently transitioning homeless individuals and families out of homelessness are not necessarily one and the same. FKOCs primary goal, mission and purpose are unequivocally the latter. The FKOC board has determined it is now in the best interest of our organization and the community at large to return the responsibility for managing the KOTS back to the city of Key West, whereby the KOTS program may possibly be more fully integrated into the recently announced initiatives being championed by Mayor Craig Cates and his committee on homelessness. The KOTS management agreement between FKOC and the city of Key West has been terminated effective Oct. 1. As the FKOC approaches our third decade of transforming homelessness through empowerment, we are even more committed to consistently improve, expand and strengthen the quality, efficacy and cost-effectiveness of our programs as we build for the future and continue to contribute toward the betterment of our community. Samuel J. Kaufman Board chairman Rev. Stephen Braddock President and CEO Key WestHurricane plan worksIn response to Howard Gelbmans letter regarding Monroe Countys hurricane plan: Mandatory evacuation is done to save lives, not only of tourists but residents, as well. Having lived here over 25 years, I know the frustration of evacuating, but that is better than losing your life. We are given more time than most areas to evacuate due to our one road and long chain of islands. This means that evacuations are started too early to some, but they cant wait until 24 hours before to get us all out. So yes, we will leave and come back to little or no damage sometimes. And yes, we might not be able to get back in right away, but they will let us in when the roads are safe and passable. It might not be what you want to hear, but public safety is their responsibility. As to the person driving up to Stuart and not finding a room we are constantly told to have a plan. Our shelters are only open in Category 1 or 2 hurricanes and as refuges of last resort. Category 3 and higher are far too dangerous to give people a false sense of security in a shelter here. Additionally, people tend to forget that with hurricanes, you get tornado activity possibilities, which compound the danger. Category 3 can cause devastating damage, Category 4 or higher is catastrophic damage. You expect someone else to risk their life so you might stay in the Keys? As to using sea-going watertight containers placed in neighborhoods, the supplies mentioned you are supposed to have on hand yourself. If roads are impassable, walking to them might be problematic or dangerous itself. The Keys have not seen a serious hurricane since Donna. I know Wilma caused damage minor wind and a lot of storm surge. We were one of the many who lost everything but our exterior structure. It still was not a major hurricane that hit here; it was the surge from a passing hurricane. If a Donna, Andrew or Katrina came through here, most who stayed would be seriously injured or dead. Some or all of our bridges would be damaged or gone. In-place support is not a good alternative to the current plan. And the ridiculous action of closing the hospitals is, in fact, not ridiculous at all. If the storm is a Category 3 or higher, the hospitals move the patients to hospitals on the mainland out of dangers path. This is done to protect them. The public is told there will be no emergency services during a storm, and they cannot be resumed after until the roads are safe and passable. Additionally, it is extremely selfish to feel that doctors, nurses, X-ray techs, lab personnel, paramedics, etc., should risk losing their lives because you choose to stay. I know that Monroe Countys plan is not perfect, but it is the most sensible at this time.Tina Warren MarathonA friend leaves usI met Nicky Rush in 1994 when I worked at Scottys Hardware in Marathon. Gentle, kind and patient, I knew then he had a heart of gold. Three years ago, I started working for Home Depot, where I had nearly daily contact with Nicky, as he worked in hardware. Again, such a pleasure to be around cheerful, ever-smiling and always helpful. Never had a bad word about anyone. Nicky left us for a much better home a few days ago. I guess God needed another angel, a very special, loving angel. My heart breaks for myself and his Home Depot family, and his sister. We will miss Nicky.

Its a tough sell. Too much of Obamas first two years in office were spent helping bankers and Wall Street recover from the mother of all global recessions while Main Street kept waiting. Yes, his stimulus package the first year of his term saved jobs for teachers, police, and other government workers, as well as autoworkers, and gave big tax credits to people buying homes or cars. Those laudable moves staved off an out-and-out depression, but they did not grow the economy. The housing market remains in shambles in states like Florida and those construction jobs have not come back. Truth is, there are bright spots in the tourism and retail sectors, but the gray clouds remain as inflation inches up along with gas prices. On Friday, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke proposed no new ways for the Fed to boost the economy, but warned Congress, with a House controlled by tea party Republicans obsessed with deficit reduction at warp speed, that it must not disregard the fragility of the current economic recovery. That doesnt mean that Republicans are wrong about pushing for an end to staggering federal budget deficits. The governments debt is unsustainable and entitlement programs, including Medicare, must be part of the solution. Some interesting job-creating ideas are being tossed around by White House officials to spark growth. Among them: Anational infrastructure bank to fix or expand roads and bridges and air and sea ports. Republicans who groused during Obamas first two years that he was not putting more people to work with transportation projects should back such a plan.Providing tax credits for businesses to hire new workers should be welcomed by Main Street, though businesses wont hire without more consumer demand. Yet with more people working and spending on goods and services, more tax revenue would start to fill government coffers, relieving state and local governments from ever-greater draconian actions to balance their own books.Homeowners whose mortgages are under water also need help. The White House is considering an aggressive plan that would help homeowners with good credit to modify their mortgages at todays market value with low interest rates instead of risking foreclosure. Obama has an opportunity to move beyond the partisanship and seal the deal for recovery.

Big Pine Road Prison to remain openGov. Rick Scotts plan to privatize prisons from Manatee County (Bradenton) through South Florida doesnt include shutting down the Big Pine Road Prison, according to the state Department of Corrections.It is part of the privatization plan, agency spokeswoman Gretl Pressinger said. Its not in our plans to close the facility. In the springs legislative session, Scott successfully fought for the privatization of 29 facilities in 18 counties as a cost-cutting measure. But the Associated Press says Scott wont sign off on the deal without the guarantee of at least 7 percent savings, or $22 million, each year. Pressinger said the operating cost for the 29 facilities in the Corrections Departments south region in 2010-11 is $343,971,741. She said that figure excludes already private facilities in South Bay and Moore Haven, and contract work-release and substance abuse/transition beds. The Big Pine prison, under the supervision of the Dade Correctional Institute in southwest Miami-Dade County, opened in 1951 and as of Monday housed its capacity of 64 inmates, Pressinger said. Theyre split into seven work crews picking up trash and mowing grass along U.S. 1. The prison on Key Deer Boulevard is staffed by 24 correctional officers and one secretary. All 25 are now full-time state employees but that will change with privatization. On July 25, the Corrections Department issued a request for proposals from private companies operate the prisons. Proposals from the vendors will be opened Sept. 23, Pressinger said. The contract will be executed in December and services will begin Jan. 1, 2012. Pressinger said the private companies will be accountable to the Department of Corrections. Among other things, we will audit our private partners and each facility will have a full-time Department of Corrections employee to serve as a monitor, she said. But 24 staffers will go private as of next yearBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comDEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS The Big Pine Road Prison on Key Deer Boulevard is hardly like most other prisons in the state.The unassuming facility unassuming except for the barbed wire sits in the middle of the woods and is home to endangered Key deer.Keynoter photo by TODD SWIFT

ABoca Raton man with apparent delusions of Hollywood grandeur was being held without bond in the Florida Keys jail Tuesday, charged with stealing a boat and numerous traffic offenses. When arrested around 10:30 p.m. Monday, Ira Bershatsky, 62, reportedly told Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputies he is actor Sam Elliott the two do somewhat resemble each other that he was a stunt double in Rocky and that he was scheduled to film part of a movie with De Niro Tuesday in California. He also reportedly told deputies he won $27 million in a lottery a few days ago, although an online search reveals no one named Bershatsky won such a lottery prize. So he found himself in the Monroe County Detention Center, charged with grand theft. He also received citations for leaving the scene of a crash with property damage, careless driving, driving with steel rims on a hard surface, having no tiedowns or chains on the boat he was towing, and driving on the wrong side of a divided highway. Deputy Becky Herrin says deputies Dave Campbell and Tony Conde and Sgt. E.B. Askins were dispatched at 10:15 p.m. Monday to a report that a truck towing a boat had just hit a gas pump at the Circle K at mile marker 99. The caller said the vehicle was headed northbound in the southbound lanes of U.S. 1. Askins found the truck towing the boat northbound in the northbound lanes at mile marker 102, and smoke was coming from the trailer because it had a flat tire and was riding on its rim. He pulled the truck over and behind the wheel was Bershatksy. Herrin says Askins thought the boat, a 2000 Proline, looked suspicious because it had a banner tied to the front and a for sale sign on it. Bershatsky claimed he just bought it in Key West, Herrin said. But as deputies attempted to call the phone number on the sign, Jorge Avila of Key Largo drove up and said it was his boat, and that it was stolen from where he parked it at mile marker 99. After Bershatsky was arrested and offered up his Hollywood bio, he was taken to jail and his 2011 Chevrolet Silverado was seized for possible forfeiture for being used to commit a felony.Suspect claims hes Sam Elliott, stunt doubleBoca man accused of stealing boat KeysNet.com Keynoter 6A Wednesday,August 31,2011 SEPTEMBERTax TalkFactsTag TalkFROMTHE TAX COLLECTOR The 2ndInstallment for the 2011 taxes are payable beginning September 1stand are due by September 30, 2011.

The USF project was part of a round of funding from the Gulf Research Initiative that provides $112.5 million over three years to address the spill. USF researchers will focus on two themes related to the spill: Understanding the physical, chemical, biological and geological processes that control the dispersion and fate of oil and gas released during a deep-sea blowout; and understanding the impacts of the Deepwater Horizon spill on the marine ecosystem. News Service of Florida Bachmann: Drill in GladesConservationists in South Florida went wide-eyed this week when Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann suggested drilling for oil in the Everglades. The United States needs to be less dependent on foreign sources of energy and more dependent upon American resourcefulness. Whether that is in the Everglades, or whether that is in the eastern Gulf [of Mexico] region or whether thats in North Dakota, we need to go where the energy is, Bachmann said Sunday in Sarasota, the Associated Press reported.When I saw that statement, I wondered if she knows where the Everglades is, said Mark Perry, an Everglades Coalition board member and executive director of the Florida Oceanographic Society.Its just ludicrous to think you could go into a system like the Everglades and try to drill for oil. It really is, Perry said. She should have done a little research first. At her campaign stop, Bachmann added, Of course, it needs to be done responsibly. If we cant responsibly access energy in the Everglades, then we shouldnt do it. In 2002, the federal government, at the urging of President George W. Bush bought back oil and gas drilling rights in the Everglades for $120 million. As president, Bachmann said she would rely on experts to determine whether drilling can be done without harming the environment. No one wants to hurt or contaminate the earth, Bachmann said. We dont want to harm our water, our ecosystems or the air. Kirk Fordham, chief executive of the Everglades Foundation, said Everglades drilling would do just that. The Everglades is the source of fresh, clean drinking water for more than 7 million Floridians. Congresswoman Bachmann needs to understand that oil and drinking water do not mix. Perry said, Oil drilling is simply an incompatible use with the Everglades. The Evergladesvalue is in its wild wetlands that provide water for recreation and essential wildlife habitat. Ive seen what happens with oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, Perry said. Youre looking at land bases, support systems, drilling muds.... Theres a lot more pollution potential. Is that the kind of industry we want along our shores?Said Fordham, NRA card-carrying hunters, fishermen, waterfowlers and other outdoors enthusiasts do not want to see oil drilling in their Everglades wildlife paradise.Perry said turning South Florida over to the oil and natural-gas industry would jeopardize tourism, the regions primary economy. And there is not a lot of oil reserves in the Eastern Gulf, or in the Everglades.During her Florida swing, Bachmann made repeated calls to eliminate the Environmental Protection Agency, which she described as a job-killing organization. Keynoter staff writer Kevin Wadlow supplemented this report.Presidential hopeful met with derisionAssociated PressOIL DRILLING KEY LARGO BERSHATSKY ELLIOTCity slowly acquiring trust unitsAthree-phase plan to transfer properties owned by the Bahama Conch Community Land Trust to the control of the Key West Housing Authority is under way, with the completion planned for the fall. Manuel Castillo, executive director of the Housing Authority, said Phase 1, involving houses at 629 Caroline St., 416 Truman Ave. and 1411 Albury St., was completed in late July. The next closing is Phase 2, he said, and we hope to do that by mid-September. Phase 3, which is the last phase, we hope to close by the end of September or the first week of October. In 2009, city officials ordered an audit of the Land Trust. It found that the nonprofit was more than $1 million in debt (with $500,000 owed to city coffers) and its management of grants widely mismanaged. The plan since has been for the Housing Authority to purchase 24 Land Trust properties, take over their management and bring the tenants under the auspices of the Housing Authority.Bob Kelly, the Land Trust acting executive director, said the proceeds from the sales to the Housing Authority $1.25 million is used to pay creditors owed money by the Land Trust.With every closing, the BCCLTboard provides a list of who to pay what and the closing agent, then writes a check to the creditor, Castillo said. At its peak, the Land Trust rented to more than 70 people. Now, most of the units are unoccupied. Castillo said the Housing Authority will spend $1.54 million to rehab the properties, bringing them up to guidelines applied to public housing so they can again be rented out. If anything is left over [after the Land Trust pays its debts], per the agreement, those funds go toward the Housing Authority for rehab of the units, but I dont expect that will happen, Castillo said. The Land Trust was founded with the goal of purchasing homes in Bahama Village, deed-restricting them as affordable under income guidelines, then renting them out to income-eligible residents. The goal was to stave off gentrification and preserve multi-generational neighborhood families in existing housing. The model eventually broke down as the emphasis shifted to rentals, landing the Land Trust as almost a renter of last resort. Kellys predecessor, Norma Jean Sawyer, is awaiting trial on a charge of grand theft alleging she misappropriated more than $90,000 in grants directed to the Land Trust. She has a pretrial conference scheduled for 8:45 a.m. Sept. 7 before Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones in Key West.Former chief still facing theft chargeBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTKeynoter StaffLawmaker: Change redistricting process?The Florida Legislature could consider a constitutional amendment to change the timeline for redistricting votes in an effort to address a barrage of criticism lawmakers have heard as they have traveled across Florida, including in Key West on Aug. 18, Senate Reapportionment Chairman Don Gaetz said Tuesday. The idea floated by Gaetz, a Niceville Republican, marked the second time in as many days lawmakers spearheading the once-a-decade election redistricting process appeared to try to mollify critics of the process. Voter-rights groups and citizens who have showed up for the public hearings that began in Tallahassee in June have roundly criticized the process for taking too long and for putting the public hearings ahead of the maps being drawn. Maybe we need to move redistricting votes to an oddnumbered year so that the Legislature and the public and the courts and the federal Justice Department all have more time, Gaetz said. An amendment like the one Gaetz outlined would not affect the current round of redistricting. But it could ensure future efforts dont run into the same resistance that this round of map-drawing has encountered.News Service of FloridaPOLITICS

Theyre not the same team out there the last four or five years. Theyre vastly improved, so I expect a good football game, Marathon coach Lance Martin said. New Hurricanes coach Ed Holly says he learned quickly what the local rivalry game means to Florida Keys fans. The most common phrase I heard after being hired was Beat Marathon, Holly said. Some people told me that it was all right if we only won one game, as long as that game was Marathon. The Dolphins have dominated the series in recent years and Upper Keys supporters let Holly know they want the string to end. I guarantee if I go out to lunch this week, somebodys going to come up and ask how are we going to do against Marathon, he said. Were looking forward to it because its always fun to play intra-county teams. Coral Shores was able to get some experience in last weeks Kickoff Classic preseason game, an 8-0 loss to visiting Ransom Everglades. The Cane defense nearly pitched a shutout in a contest where Coral Shores never owned favorable field position. But the Cane offense struggled to find traction. I expect were going to get a lot better on offense this week, Holly said. We better because Marathon has built a quality football program. Martin said the Canes have a leg up on the Dolphins because his teams Kickoff Classic against Center of Life Academy was canceled at the last minute. The school folded its football program, he said. It really hurts us because we dont get the live game situation because you dont know what you have to improve on, Martin said. Friday nights game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at Marathon High School.Kickoff is set for 7:30 Friday in Middle KeysPREP FOOTBALLBy KEVIN WADLOW and RYAN McCARTHYkwadlow@keynoter.com Hurricanes hang with Ransom in 8-0 lossACoral Shores High School defense that refused to break could not offset an offense that barely moved in an 8-0 loss to Ransom Everglades in the Hurricanespreseason football game. But the eight-point margin on Friday was a marked improvement over a lopsided 36-0 thumping Ransom heaped on the Canes last season, and established a positive tone for the regular-season opener this coming Friday at Marathon High School. I was very pleased with our overall effort. We competed, head coach Ed Holly said after the contest with Ransom at George M. Barley Memorial Stadium. Our defense played like champions, Holly said. Were still 0-0, and I expect us to get a lot better [offensively] this week. The Canesdefense continually shut down Ransom drives, often started deep in Coral Shores territory. Defensive tackle Will Ismer had two sacks and a forced fumble recovered by linemate Henry Roshi. Veteran linebackers Gianni Gonzalez and Ryan Vasquez led a solid unit aided by Ryan Bahn, who made a fumble recovery. Those guys were stellar, Holly said. ACane defensive line including David Bogue, Joe Wear, Tom Johnson, Austin Wilkins and Hever Viguera quickly shut down most holes that opened for Ransom runners. Arebuilt defensive backfield saw Chase Casrao and Jimmy Rhyne break up Ransom fourth-down passes in the shadow of the Canes goal post. The only Raider touchdown came after a run-option on a Cane punt went awry. Coaches told Rhyne, a first-year punter kicking from the Coral Shores 13yard line, to head right with an option to run, and to quick-kick if a hole wasnt there. Ransom responded, partially blocking the second-quarter punt. The Raiders started at the Cane 16, and scored on a first-down run by halfback Dominic Gregg. The only other score came when Ransom tackled a Cane runner in the Coral Shores end zone for a two-point safety with four minutes left in the game. Several expected starters were sidelined for the game, forcing changes in the lineup in the days leading up to Ransoms arrival. We never could get field position, and we didnt do what we wanted on offense, Holly said. Our timing wasnt right. Sometimes runners missed the holes, sometimes the blocks werent there. On Coral Shoressix firsthalf drives, the Canes gained a net total of 24 yards with one first down. The Canes rotated through a number of runners, led by veteran senior halfback Andrew Garcia and bruising junior runner Kodi Roberts. We got to look at a lot of guys and got some great teaching film, Holly said. Junior quarterback was 1for-5 passing, and teamed with Garcia on the Canes biggest play, a 28-yard pass completion to midfield at the start of the fourth quarter.Defensive struggle on both sidesCORAL SHORES FOOTBALL By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comKeynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWCoral Shores defenders including David Bogue (64),Will Ismer (center) and Ryan Bahn (2) combine to pull down a Ransom runner in the Canes8-0 loss to the Raiders in Fridays preseason game.Cane coach Ed Holly described the defense as stellar.See Canes,2BIrenes winds kick up dolphin biteWhile we in the Keys were spared the wrath of Hurricane Irene, our thoughts are with family, friends, clients and all those affected across the East Coast. At times like this, it is hard to fathom the same sea that has the power to create massive shoreline damage and devastating flooding is also our placid backyard playground. Right now, our playing field is offering up a dolphin bite that kicked up a notch with the increased winds we felt from Irene. There are plenty of shoolies plus some good-size gaffers. While trolling weed lines in search of dolphin, it pays to have one lure dropped way back to entice a bite from blackfin tuna. As always, dont overlook the opportunity to snag the wahoo that may be hanging around any floating debris. The action on the reef remains the same as the last couple of weeks. Yellowtail snapper are biting well, with the largest fish coming off the deeper areas. Lots of chum is required to attractSnapper action is also strong along the reefFISHING THE FLORIDA KEYS Mark and Laura Wesselmann,from Carlsbad,Calif.,show part of the snapper catch landed with SeaSquared Charters.Conchs start season with questionsDeprived of its preseason game, the Key West High School football team will begin the regular season against Miami High at 7:30 Friday night at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium. Last Friday nights contest with Pompano Beach was cancelled after Key West athletic director Ralph Henriquez was informed that the team was not coming because of paperwork issues. The cancellation which was not related to hurricane issues as some had assumed did not sit well with Conch coach Jerry Hughes. If they did it for the safety of their kids, I could accept that, Hughes said, but if its because some paperwork was not in order, I cant accept that. Jason Frey, Pompanos athletic director, said the team was excited about coming to Key West. Everyone was disappointed, he said, but some field-trip forms hadnt been filed. Because of budgetary restrictions, most teams in Broward and Miami-Dade counties are not traveling out of their areas for games. The Conch football program, with money brought in from fundraisers, pays teams from $1,000 to $1,500 to come to Key West to defray bus and food costs. We were going to pay [Pompano] $1,000, Henriquez said. Henriquez said the cancellation cost the Conchs from $3,000 to $5,000 in gate receipts and concession-stand money. Also lost was a chance for Hughes to assess his team, other than at a practice. You use a preseason game to see what youve got and to iron out the wrinkles now were going to have to iron out the wrinkles in this game, he said. Miami High was 6-5 lastPompano kills preseason, assessmentKEY WEST FOOTBALLBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter Contributor Football Eagles open FridayTwo-thirds of Island Christian Schools likely football starters for Fridays opener bring extensive game experience from last season. From another angle, thats four guys. But in the fastpaced game of six-man football, that veteran quartet could be enough for the Eagles to make notable strides this fall. Island Christian travels to the Florida Christian Institute of Fort Myers for the 7:30 p.m. season opener. Were all about to get a big crash course, said head coach Bruce Gendron, running the program with volunteer assistants Aaron Brower and Michael Walters. Team veterans Matt Cavanagh, Dylan Ayres, Kadian Carter and Ranger Gilliland have been working out together all summer and look pretty good, Gendron said Monday. Early preseason practices drew only five to six players but the varsity roster has now grown to 10 at the small school. We were a little nervous at the start but things are turning out pretty well, Gendron said. Everybody out here is giving it their all. The Eagles lost to graduation their top two rushers from last years 2-5 club, and their primary receiver transferred. Cavanagh returns as quarterback, with Carter the most experienced receiver in a game where every offensive player can be an eligible passcatcher. Ayres and Gilliland were blockers and steady defenders in 2010. Chris OBerry, an athletic eighth-grader, saw varsity game time season, and freshman Tommy Lancaster returns to the squad after missing last year. Both are expected to play vital roles, Gendron said. Shaka Smith, a new seventh grader, brings size and speed to the field, he added. Having 10 guys out here helps us a lot, Gendron said. It lets us give our starters some breaks during the game, which was something that we didnt have last year. This game can wear a player out. Six-man football is a fullcontact game, but the field is 80 yards long and 40 yards wide. Afirst-down requires 15 yards and the quarterback cannot run without exchanging the ball with another player. The Eagles are on the road for the first three games, following the Florida Christian Institute trip with games at Miami Christian on Sept. 9 and Donahue Academy of Ave Maria on Sept. 17. The first ICS home game in Islamorada comes at 4:30 p.m. Sept. 17 against Oasis Charter.Four veterans lead team in six-man gameISLAND CHRISTIAN FOOTBALLChris Johnson CaptainsColumn See Fishing,2BSee Conchs,2BBy KEVIN WADLOWkwadlow@keynoter.com

As the saying goes, he with the most chum wins. On the shallow reef areas and patches, mangrove snapper is your best shot. Mixed in are plenty of keeper-size yellowtails, fish in the 12to 13-inch range. So if the mangroves arent cooperating, youll still go home with something tasty for dinner. This time of year, the mackerel can be a bit wireshy, so use the smallest pound test wire you feel you can get away with. If they still wont attack your live baits, try going to 60-pound fluorocarbon leaders with a long shank hook.The weeks bestFishing on the Papa Pips out of Captain Pips Marina and Hideaway in Marathon, Capt. Howard Kelley had successful trips to the reef that produced good catches of yellowtail and mangrove snapper. Capt. Zach Willis and Neil Apley guided anglers on Captain Pips rental boats to nice snapper catches, as well. Guests included the Skeen family from Hurricane, W. Va., the Bohlig family from Inver Grove Heights, Minn., Bill and Becky Mellott from Sterling, Va., and the Cain family from Morris, Ill. Thane Forthman, from Simpsonville, S.C., treated his teenage son Jake to two shark fishing adventures with us on the SeaSquared On their first trip, the duo caught 16 lemon sharks, with the largest at 7 feet, 3 inches. The goal for the second trip was to land a larger one. Mission accomplished, with Jakes 7-5 lemon, a replica of which Thane is having mounted by Gray Taxidermy. Nice trophy of a great father-son fishing trip. Capt. Moe Mottice, of Reel Lucky Charters at Turtle Kraals in Key West, put his anglers on large blacktip sharks and barracudas on the flats using trolled ballyhoo. On the reef, the snappers are biting the hooks like its their last meal. Mottice reports that while the numbers of tarpon are diminishing in Key West Harbor, theyre still a blast to catch.Casting for CharityCapt.

The next home game is Sept. 9 against Northwest Christian of Miami.Canes, Fins playFrom Canes,1B season and made the playoffs for the first time since 2004. The Stings have a wellrounded offense led by receiver Tad Cato, who caught 24 passes for 360 yards last season, and Elvis Trujillo, who ran for more than 500 yards and six touchdowns. As of Monday, Hughes said he was still undecided on who will start at quarterback Tommy Ruffennach or Donald Roberts but that he was leaning toward Ruffennach. It will probably be Tommy because he knows the offense, he said. The team has been searching for a punter, and it appears it will be either Roberts or Clive Georges, the star receiver. Clive has a strong leg and can kick the ball high, but the other day in practice one of his punts went only five yards, the Hughes said. The Conchs are coming off a 6-3-1 season and are 17-11 since Hughes returned to his alma mater in 2008.QB up in the airFrom Conchs,1B Conchs 4th in shortened tourneySophomore Evan DeRoche shot a 76 to lead the Key West High School golf team to a strong showing at Mondays 10-team Westminster Christian Invitational at the Biltmore Hotel course in Miami. However, lightning caused the cancellation of much of the tournament at Miamis Biltmore Golf Course on Monday, so only the first nine holes were counted. That meant DeRoches 36 tied him for third individually, and the Conchs158 was good enough for fourth place First we had lightning, then the rain came, said McCarthy coach Carl Phillips. We won this tournament last year. So we came in to defend our title. Archbishop McCarthy won the tournament with a team score of 146. It was a tough day but the boys did good, said coach George Twyman. DeRoche was followed by Joseph Arazi, who shot 82 (38 on the front nine); A.J. Davila and Nick Patrocky, who both shot 85; and Trevor Pike, who had a 95. Evan hit the ball better than Ive ever seen, but his putting was horrible, Twyman said.

Shes demonstrating to the students how much sugar is in their soft drinks. Thats just one lesson that Kerri Louati, the nutrition education manager at FLIPANY Florida Introduces Physical Activity and Nutrition to Youth is trying to bring to South Florida children through nutrition classes and cooking lessons. So far, FLIPANYs team of registered dietitians, nutrition educators, volunteers, chefs and fitness professionals have worked with more than 30,000 people and 60 community agencies. Its our goal to have Florida be the healthiest state in the nation, says Executive Director Lynne Kunins. Louati still remembers the lunches her mother prepared for her when she was a child. One favorite was a tuna and apple salad sandwich. When I hear the word lunch,that image still pops into my head. Kids remember these things, she says. You, too, can create memorable boxed lunches by including your child in the planning and packing. Ask what they want or what their friends are eating at school. You have to pack things your child likes and wants to eat or they wont benefit from it, Louati says. That doesnt mean you cant try something new. Just dont get discouraged if your child rejects a food on first taste. It can take 15 to 20 tries before a child takes to a new food, Kunins says.Vary the prepTo speed the process, vary the preparation. If your child doesnt like the food grilled, try baking it. If they dont like it chopped, maybe theyll like it cut into sticks. If they dont like it plain, add a simple low-fat dip. When deciding what to pack, think of the five food groups. Start with grains specifically whole grains. Proteins should be low-fat options such as chicken, turkey, low-fat cheese, nonfat yogurt or beans. Fruits and vegetables are best fresh. And selections from the dairy group should be low fat or fat free. Think skim milk and nonfat yogurt. Getting your child to eat more fresh fruits and veggies is key to healthier eating. You can work them into meals in creative ways. Your child might not like a pile of spinach but may be willing to eat it on a sandwich instead of lettuce. Or turn it into pesto to serve on sandwiches or tossed with pasta. Kunins says her kids, ages 6 and 10, like chunks of chicken mixed with chopped carrots, cucumbers and celery with a little dressing. She uses a lowfat variety. They dont know the difference, she says. Or you might incorporate vegetables in other dishes your kids already like, Louati suggests. For example, put shredded carrots in mac and cheese, chopped broccoli in tomato sauce for pasta or sliced, seeded tomato on a sandwich. (Removing the seeds will help keep the tomato from turning the sandwich soggy.)Try some colorAnd those fruits and veggies can be turned into a colorful snack such as rainbow salsa thats popular with students that attend FLIPANYclasses. Made from chopped jicama, cucumber, mango, cilantro and tomatoes as well as corn kernels straight off the cob, its a healthful dip with baked tortilla chips. Other snacks such as lowfat string cheese, a fat-free yogurt or yogurt parfait, berries, low-fat granola, unsalted pretzels and nuts or apple slices with hummus make good choices that are easy for your child to eat on the run or at play. (Packing tip: Dip the apple slices in lemon or orange juice to keep them from turning brown.) When it comes to beverages, avoid sugary power drinks and sodas. Too much sugar and refined carbohydrates can cause blood sugar levels to spike and then fall, causing a child to become hungry sooner and feel tired. Thats not a good way to be in school, Louati says. Bottled water is a no-calorie, sugar-free option. To make it more fun and flavorful, add lemon or orange slices, strawberries, cucumber slices or fresh mint.
