WWW.KEYSNET.COM WEDNESDAY,MAY 9,2012 VOLUME 59,NO.37 25 CENTS STATE CABINETKeynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYGov.Rick Scott introduces himself to audience members prior to Tuesdays state Cabinet meeting in Marathon.The Cabinet gave final approval to a $50 million bond to fund Keys sewer projects.For Keys,day of celebrationThe most popular sewer line ever is officially the recipient of a $50 million state bond aimed at financing a pair of large-scale Keys central sewer projects.Thats the one-liner state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Commissioner Adam Putnam used Tuesday morning to describe the sewering of the Keys moments after Gov. Rick Scott and the state Cabinet unanimously approved the bond. The Cabinet was in Marathon, holding its monthly meeting in the Stanley Switlik Elementary School cafeteria. The visit was seen by many as a celebration of the sewer money, and its approval was met with loud applause from the audience of roughly 200.The $50 million is part of the $200 million so-called Mayfield grant authorized in 2009 but not allocated. It was supposed to be doled out over four years. Scott told the Keynoter prior to Tuesdays meeting hes well aware Keys governments will ask for the remaining $150 million in short order. The thing about this job is even if a problem has been around for 20 years, the expectation is to solve it the first day in office. I know its important, he said. The whole key is going to be where we are in the budget. Ive bumped into two big budget deficits and we try to allocate your money as best we can to save the money to do big projects. At the meeting, County Administrator Roman Gastesi told Scott the remaining $150 million would largely go toward paying off already completed work the state was expected to fund. Keys officials lauded the Cabinet for realizing the importance of state sewer funding, especially with a state mandate to finish all projects by December 2015. Its something the Keys need and its hard for them to do on their own without state help. I spent time talking to people about it and they explained the importance of it, Scott said.Monroe County will receive $30 million of the first allotment to get construction of the $156 million Cudjoe Regional sewer system started, while Islamorada would receive the other $20 million to get its villagewide system under way.State Cabinet gives official OK to bond $50 million for sewersBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMovement on wind policies?Monroe County Commissioner Heather Carruthers says she is optimistic the Keys will get a fair shake when it comes to windstorm insurance rates, following a Tuesday meeting with the states top insurance officials.Carruthers is a founding member of Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe. She, other FIRM board members and other Keys residents met with the officials to discuss the depopulation plan aimed at eliminating as many as 678,000 policies from Citizens Property Insurance Corp., the staterun insurer of last resort.The meeting was Tuesday in Marathon with state Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty, Citizens Property Chief Executive Officer Tom Grady and State Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater.My takeaway was that they were very open-minded about our issues. We were effective at communicating to them why were different than the rest of the state and why our risk is overstated, Carruthers said.FIRM has been fighting ever-increasing windstorm insurance rates proposed by Citizens for years. Private insurance companies wont write wind policies in the Keys despite FIRMs contention that flood and storm surge are much larger concerns in the event of a hurricane.Carruthers said FIRM is attempting to have the state fund a full actuarial analysis of Monroe County only. She said the states insurancerate model grossly overstates potential wind impact. Theyre building a model for Monroe County assuming the perfect storm comes down the Keys and wipes everything out and is 100 percent attributable to wind. Im sorry, but thats not going to happen, she said. Our problem is flood and storm-surge claims. Grady told the Keynoter that over time, he feels the Keys will depopulate from Citizens coverage and private vendors will return. In the Keys, there arent a lot of choices for wind insurance. We write 95 percent of their wind coverage. I would love for that toCarruthers: State officials are listeningBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comCITIZENS PROPERTY INSURANCE CORP. Keys a part of BPclass actionThe Florida Keys lie on the very eastern edge of an area covered by a new legal settlement on economic damages from the BPDeepwater Horizon spill.Afederal judge on May 2 gave preliminary approval to the settlement that creates a class-action case involving claims ranging from Texas to Monroe Countys border with Miami-Dade (Miami-Dade is not included in the class).BPhas estimated settling cases with economic and property damage claimants stemming from the April 2010 oil spill will cost the multi-national firm an additional $7.8 billion, although the actual figure remains open-ended.As part of the settlement, the Gulf Coast Claims Facility has been replaced by the new Deepwater Horizon Court-Supervised Settlement Program. Pending claims filed with the Gulf Coast Claims Facility, whose director, Ken Feinberg, stepped down in March, will be turned over to the new agency. Most claims will not require additional paperwork, according to agency websites.Residents and businesses that intend to proceed with individual lawsuits against BPcan opt out of the classaction settlement, which was reached by a coalition of plaintiffsattorneys and BP. Applications to a quickclaim program established byMonroe County alreadys gotten $184M in claimsDEEPWATER HORIZON DISASTERNavys housing firm stands to profit bigThe pending sale of a Key West military neighborhood to a private company has many questioning the public/private arrangement that would see another private company profit from the sale of military assets. In April, White St. Partners LLC entered into a contract with Southeast Housing LLC, a division of Balfour Beatty Communities, to purchase the 157-unit Peary Court gated community in Old Town Key West. Balfour Beatty is the Navys private housing partner. It owns the houses while the Navy owns the land on which they sit.Neither White St. Partners nor Southeast Housing LLC has released dollar figures, but city Planning Director Don Craig has said the deal for the Palm Avenue complex could be worth up to $30 million.The neighborhood was built in the 1990s as housing for junior enlisted men and in recent years has been opened up to civilians.

Tax on military housing not clearcutThe complicated issue of whether privately held housing on U.S. Navy property in Key West is taxable has played out elsewhere in the country.Monroe County Property Appraiser Karl Borglum has asked attorneys for Balfour Beatty Communities, which owns military housing on Navy land at Peary Court and other Key West locations, for documents that show local government has no jurisdiction, including levying property taxes, on federal land. Without those documents, Borglum said, he intends to assess and add some 890 units of privately owned military housing to the 2012-13 tax roll, and exercise his authority to seek back taxes from 2009 going forward.Its just another legal challenge, he said. The taxability of property is complicated and when you mix the federal government into it, which is immune from taxation, it adds another twist. Absent those ceding documents, Id say the property is taxable.In 2007, ownership of Navy housing in the Southernmost City was transferred to Balfour Beatty subsidiary Southeast Housing LLC. The 890 units are at Peary Court, Trumbo Point, Sigsbee Park, the Truman Annex and on the Branch Medical Clinic property on South Roosevelt Boulevard.Privatization of military housing began in 1996. The general idea was to leverage partnerships with private entities to attract investment and modernize and maintain aging homes and build new units. In a departure from previous military housing strategies, the federal Military Housing Privatization Initiative drew on no new federal money. Rather, it provides income to the private partners through already appropriated military housing allowances.Borglum said the issue of taxability was raised in his office when its legal counsel, John Dent Jr. of Sarasota, took up a similar issue for the Okaloosa County Property Appraisers Office over planned private construction on Eglin Air Force Base. In that case, only parts of Eglin were confirmed as officially ceded by the state to the federal government; for the planned private construction, to be undertaken by firm Picerne Air Force Housing LLC, that means only parts of the construction will be subject to county property taxes. In Pennington County, S.D., where Balfour Beatty operates on Ellsworth Air Force Base, city officials in Box Elder recently found federal law prohibits them from collecting property taxes on recently privatized military housing unless its ultimately rented to civilians. Writing in the 2005 edition of The Air Force Law Review, former Air Force attorney Philip Morrison said privatization of military housing has created a complex tax problem because of the federal nature of the housing developments and myriad of state and local taxing authorities affected by new construction. Local taxing authorities appear poised to take advantage to the projects and the property tax revenues. A battle royale is in the making. In the Keys in 2007, Borglum predecessor Ervin Higgs notified the militarys housing partners that the pending privatization would not affect the taxability of the property, noting that his office does not find that any taxable interest is created in or through the ground lease or management relationship. As noted by Monroe County Commissioner Kim Wigington, normally tax exemptions are something requested of the county Value Adjustment Board.Borglum awaits proof Navy units exemptBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTchange but Im not naive; I dont think its going to change overnight, he said. Nobody likes not having choices; you cant go anywhere else. While those policies might remain, the depopulation plan has already had repercussions for the Keys. They include:Putting a $1 million cap on the value of a home Citizens would provide windstorm insurance to. It could be $1 million to build here, not because youre building a mansion, but it costs four times as much to build, Carruthers said, referring to strict building codes in the Keys.Awide-ranging reinspection program by which Citizens sends inspectors to homes in search of safety deficiencies, leading to higher premiums. If youre not savvy, you just assume what these guys say is true. The inspectors get paid per inspection, so the more they do, the more they get paid. They come down and do eight or 10 a day. You cant get thorough like that, Carruthers said.Denying windstorm insurance to homes intended to be rented out for seven days or less. The Keys are filled with vacation rental homes.No change overnightFrom Citizens,1A Privatization Initiative.One of the biggest questions Ive had to answer over and over again, Denny said, is how can the government let [Balfour Beatty] sell it? It was actually an act of Congress.Part of the deal to sweeten that with [the private partners] is allowing them to sell property and land if they need to. The money they make off it goes right back into improving and building military housing. Conveyance of land is legal in this case. Back in 2010, Monroe County Commissioner Kim Wigington met with Key West Mayor Craig Cates and staff from the Monroe County Land Authority and Key West Housing Authority to discuss the potential of one of those entities purchasing Peary Court for use as affordable housing. She said Balfour Beatty representatives basically stonewalled attempts to get information, including a purchase price, unless those involved signed a confidentiality agreement. Monroe County Property Appraiser Karl Borglum is investigating whether the county can tax 890 units of privately owned military housing, including Peary Court, that have been exempt since a 2007 transition into private ownership by Balfour Beatty. Congress OKs sale of landFrom Navy,1ANavys in the rental businessIn the tangle of trying to figure out if the Peary Court military housing complex in Key West is taxable, some Keys residents have been surprised to learn of Naval Air Station Key Wests vacation rental business. U.S. Navy spokeswoman Trice Denny said the Navys private housing partner, Balfour Beatty Communities, which owns some 890 military housing units around Key West including those in Peary Court, owns none of the militarys rentals. Denny said the Navy Lodge on Sigsbee Park has 26 units and the Navys Office of Morale, Welfare and Recreation operates 97 rentals on Trumbo Point, all available to active-duty and retired military as well as their families.Monroe County Commissioner Kim Wigington learned of the rentals after seeing online advertisements. With Property Appraiser Karl Borglum investigating whether the military housing is subject to property taxes, Wigington began to wonder.Are they paying sales tax like everyone else? she asked. Are they paying bed tax? If theyre not paying property taxes, it makes me question if theyre paying the sales tax. Denny said that because the rentals are operated by the federal government on federal property, there arent any sales or bed-tax collections. But she did say all of the vacation units are counted in the states hurricane evacuation clearance plan.Development in the Keys is driven by the ability to evacuate residents and visitors in 24 hours; specific calculations attach numbers of people and cars to types and size of vacation units, in turn informing the clearance model.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTthe Gulf Coast Claims Facility now will be accepted until June 11 under an extended deadline. The quick-claim settlements offer a one-time payment that limits the claimantsability to pursue other legal action against BP.For more information, go to www.DeewaterHorizons Settlements.com Afederal audit of the Gulf Coast Claims Facility found that most claims were handled properly, but a group of about 7,000 claimants are entitled to a total of about $64 million they should have received.Monroe County residents and businesses have received a total of $184.2 million as of May 3, according to figures published by the Gulf Coast Claims Facility. The center has paid 11,135 claims from Monroe County. No information was available on the number of pending or rejected claims from the Keys. Payments reported by the GCCF to Floridians 130,210 individuals and 57,259 businesses stood at a total of $2.73 billion late last week. Monroe Countys total payments of $184.2 million rank among the highest in the state, outside of the Panhandle counties most directly affected by the Deepwater Horizon spill. The states westernmost county, Escambia (including Pensacola), had received $315.2 million on 24,242 claims. Okaloosa County, with Destin and Fort Walton Beach, had received $573.4 million on 38,296 claims. The Deepwater Horizon rig, operating under a contract to BP, exploded, burned and sank on April 20, 2010. Eleven men on it died. Oil flowed from the sea floor about a mile down for nearly three months until the spill was capped July 15. None of the oil now estimated at about 5 million barrels, or 200 million gallons was found in Keys waters. Tests on more than 100 tar balls found near the Keys determined they came from other sources, like ship bilge. The prospect of currents bringing the spill oil to the Keys and through the Florida Straits caused last summers tourism business to plummet as visitors feared the worst.Claims now class actionFrom Claims,1ACraig gets pretrial interventionKey West City Planner Don Craig, 64, entered a pretrial intervention program Thursday after prosecutors agreed to drop a misdemeanor assault charge against him.Craig was arrested around 10 p.m. April 21 when he was caught throwing rocks at a marked police car driven by Key West police officer Brian Leahy. Craig, who police reports indicate was intoxicated, said he was frustrated with people speeding past his home on Olivia Street.City Manager Jim Scholl suspended Craig for 10 days.According to the deal he made with the Monroe County State Attorneys Office, Craig has to undergo six months of supervision, including random urinalysis and monthly meetings with a court representative; perform 50 hours of community service; and write an apology letter to Leahy.Craig also has to pay a $60 monthly supervision fee for six months. Craig started working for Monroe County as a planner in 1987, eventually becoming Growth Management director. He was an assistant county administrator before leaving in 1990. In addition to being Key Wests top planner, he operates a private land planning and development firm, The Craig Co., with offices in Key West, Ocala and Breckenridge, Colo.IN THE COURTSKeynoter Staff

The field vying for three open seats on the Marathon City Council in November is growing rapidly. Longtime resident and musician Dave Scott could be the next candidate to enter the fray. He said hes been encouraged to run and is strongly considering it. Theres quite a lifestyle change for me and if I do it, I want to do it 100 percent. Ive had a lot of interest in me doing this, he said. I feel theres things I can do and give a common-sense approach to government that lacks in some areas. Scott, 71, would be the sixth candidate to file to run for the council. Elections are at-large, meaning the three highest vote getters will be elected. The seats of Mayor Pete Worthington and council members Ginger Snead and Dick Ramsay are up. The two-term incumbent Ramsay filed last Wednesday, a week after longtime resident and former Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board member Bill Daniels, a banker, joined the race. Two-term incumbent Snead, former city employee C.J. Geotis and two-time council candidate Larry Shaffer, retired from the U.S. Navy, round out the field. Worthington has served three straight terms and is term-limited out. Scott says if elected, he would focus on beautifying the city and retaining its family-friendly reputation. I think Marathon is started to lose that flavor of a laid-back fishing community. Id like to see us expand on being a familyoriented fishing town, he said. Should he decide to run, this would be Scotts first foray into politics. He worked in the printing industry for years before coming to the Keys and becoming a working musician. Scott said hes given himself no more than three weeks to decide about seeking office. The general election is Nov. 6. The official candidate qualifying period is the week of Aug. 7 if paying the $720 qualifying fee; the deadline for candidates choosing to get on the ballot via the petition method is July 10. Wednesday,May 9,2012 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com Cost forKeys trip: Around $5,000Accompanied by staff and security, Gov. Rick Scott and Cabinet members descended on the Florida Keys Monday night, 590 miles from their Tallahassee base.The elected officials were in Marathon to discuss water quality and emergency management, among other things, at their Tuesday meeting at Stanley Switlik Elementary School. Its the second time this year the Cabinet is vacating Tallahassee to interact with citizens around the state, said Lane Wright, a spokesman for the governors office.These Florida field trips arent cheap, especially when home is the out-of-the-way Tallahassee, where flights are often expensive and inconvenient. Thats especially true when the destination is as far from Tallahassee as one can get in Florida.Scott shoulders some of the bill by buying his own food and flying two of his staff on his private jet. But for him and his aides to attend alongside Attorney General Pam Bondi, Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater and Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam and their staffs, the cost to taxpayers is at least $5,180.The governor feels its important to bring state government to the people and give Floridians who might never make it to Tallahassee a chance to meet and discuss issues with their elected officials, Wright said. Heres the cost breakdown.For Scott to travel with four staff and a press aide, its $1,411. That includes hotels for $150 per night, food and three commercial flights for those who didnt take the governors jet.For Bondi and her crew, its $1,284. That includes flights to Miami with two staff members, car rental and gas, and a $125 per-night hotel.For Putnam and his posse? Its $1,304. Putnam and his Cabinet affairs director flew south for $314.Putnam press aide Sterling Ivey drove nine hours and spent $240 in gas from Tallahassee to fetch his boss at the airport and shuttle him to Marathon. The three were scheduled to stay in the Holiday Inn Express for two nights at $125 each.And for the states CFO? Atwater drove from West Palm Beach, where Scott held a ceremonial signing for a bill to prevent fraud in personal injury protection insurance, known as PIP. His gas is $160 (the state reimburses about 45 cents per mile). He also flew two employees to Miami for $521 and rented four hotel rooms for $500. Atwaters total bill is $1,181. The prices dont always include food, which state rules cap at $36 per day.Since Scott took office, Cabinet expeditions included the John F. Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, the state fairgrounds in Tampa and an excursion to the Panhandle to promote tourism after the BPoil spill, Wright said.Flights,gas, hotel,meals are main costsBy BRITTANY ALANA DAVISHerald/Times Tallahassee bureauSTATE CABINETKeynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYGov.Rick Scott visits with Switlik first-grader Jack Demers,6,and Switlik teacher of the year Christy Meier Tuesday.Scott and the state Cabinet held their monthly meeting at the Marathon school. Gastesi keyed on the return on investment from the bond, saying it would be used to create $260 million worth of construction projects and 1,100 jobs. Numerous Switlik students attended the meeting and accepted awards for a hurricane-evacuationthemed art contest and Memorial Day essay contest sponsored by Scotts office. The Switlik Boy Scout troop started the meeting off by reciting the pledge of allegiance with the Cabinet, and Scott recognized several students and faculty members by name. Following the meeting, Scott was escorted by the student safety patrol to first-, thirdand fifth-grade classrooms. He colored a picture of a Dolphin the Switlik mascot with the firstgrade class and oversaw a game of state history trivia with the third-graders.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 4A Wednesday,May 9,2012 Garcia gets Ferro caseWith the murder trial of Nicholas Ferro reassigned to Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia, all future proceedings in the second-degree homicide case will take place at the Plantation Key Courthouse. Garcias judicial assistant, Robin Barber, said theres a potential trial date of Nov. 12 but thats not set in stone.Anative of Hollywood in Broward County, Ferro, 25, is accused of stabbing to death Marquese Butler, 23, on Oct. 31, 2009, during the annual Fantasy Fest in Key West.Ferros two-week trial in March ended in a mistrial after the six-person jury couldnt reach a verdict after nearly three days of deliberations. Prosecutors, who plan to retry the case, reported the verdict was 5-1 in favor of finding Ferro guilty of second-degree murder and are investigating allegations of jury tampering. In April, Chief Judge David Audlin abruptly recused himself from presiding over Ferros case, bringing in Garcia. Audlin didnt say specifically why he recused himself. Because the Butler family has ties to the Monroe County State Attorneys Office, prosecutors Miesha Darrough and Breezye Telfair were brought in from the Miami-Dade County State Attorneys Office.After the mistrial, attorneys for both sides were working on a 90-day time limit to convene a second trial.Terry Chavez, a spokeswoman for the Miami-Dade State Attorney, said Ferros defense counsel requested a continuance and waived the defendants right to a 90-day retrial. The case was set in accordance with the availability of all counsel and the court.Ferro admitted during trial that he stabbed Butler but said it wa self-defense.Audlin removes himself from murder trialBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comIN THE COURTS FERRO Bozarth indicted formurderDenise Bozarth, accused of bludgeoning her husband to death aboard a Key Largo houseboat in 2007, was formally indicted by a grand jury Friday on a count of premeditated murder. Bozarth, 39, remains in custody in the Monroe County jail with no bond allowed. She was arrested in March after an investigation lasting nearly five years.Assistant State Attorney Theresa Hunnewell presented evidence to the grand jury in a one-day session Friday at the Plantation Key courthouse.The body of Edward Bozarth, 62, was discovered in July 2007, stuffed into a canvas sack concealed inside the engine compartment of his boat, named Screw U 2 docked at Gilberts Marina.Edward Bozarth had been killed by blunt force trauma to the head about a week before the grim discovery, the Monroe County Medical Examiners Office concluded.The couple had been married for nine years and had two children.Sheriffs Office detectives considered Denise Bozarth among the suspects from the start.She had moved off the boat several days before the body was discovered. And following the slaying, she moved to Walton County in North Florida to be near her parents.Acquaintances told detectives that Denise had talked of killing her husband, and reportedly tried to hire a former boyfriend to kill him. She told friends she expected to receive $650,000 that her husband had inherited from his mother, according to Detective Jason Madnicks arrest affidavit.Madnick said he and Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigators interviewed Denise Bozarth several times over the years, and she made numerous inconsistent statements to them about what happened. The State Attorneys Office is expected to seek a life sentence rather than the death penalty.Shes accused in husbands 2007 slayingCRIME FRONT BOZARTHBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comVote on FKAAlikely on ballotThe Monroe County Commission is slated to decide on May 16 whether to put on the November ballot a referendum asking voters if the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority board should be appointed or elected. The board is now governor-appointed and any change to that would have to go through the state Legislature. So a referendum would be nonbinding.People, on issues like that, are pretty apathetic on things like that. It doesnt cost anything to ask the question, so how do you not allow the voters to put their two cents in? Commissioner George Neugent asked.Neugent has been pushing the idea since the Aqueduct Authority boards controversial Nov. 22 meeting. ThenExecutive Director Jim Reynolds abruptly resigned and was replaced just moments later by board attorney Kirk Zuelch.Neugent has maintained that meeting wasnt the impetus behind posing the question of whether the board should be elected but he raised the issue shortly after that meeting.COUNTY COMMISSIONKeynoter Staff

ALL SALES FINAL 50% OFFENTIRE STOCK Teachers union willing to take a pay cutMonroe Countys teachers union proposed pay cuts for its members on Tuesday instead of a list of measures offered by the School District aimed at cutting $6.2 million from the budget. Astate union bargaining specialist representing Keys teachers called the districts anticipated cuts draconian during negotiations Tuesday in Tavernier. Steve Fischer from the Florida Education Association said none of the other 66 Florida school systems are taking steps as severe as those in Monroe to address budget shortfalls resulting from the continued economic downturn. United Teachers of Monroe representatives have until a May 21 meeting in Marathon to devise a spreadsheet showing how their proposed pay reductions, which are based on an index system, would translate into acceptable savings for the district.Monroe Countys school system is projected to take in $74.3 million in revenues for the 2012-13 budget year but total expenses are expected to be about $83.5 million. Superintendent Jesus Jara wants more than $6 million of the difference to be made up by teachers union concessions.Most controversial among the measures proposed by Jara and Michael Kinneer, the districts chief financial officer, involve cutting health benefits to employees and retirees. Under their plan, the district would stop contributing the full $6,300 a year to the health plans of the current 188 retirees over age 65, starting this June. The School District would also institute a 9 percent reduction in what it contributes to all employees plans. Employees retiring after this June would receive no contribution to their health plans from the district. Other cuts proposed by Jara include imposing seven unpaid furlough days. Luke Savage, the districts lawyer in negotiations with the union, said Tuesday the district is willing to consider the unions alternative once it provides solid numbers.Leon Fowler, the former union president who is still active in negotiations, said the index proposed by the union is based on what the starting salary of a teacher is beginning next year. For example, if the starting salary is $40,000 a year, all employees would take a cut based on dividing their current pay by $40,000.This would mean an administrator earning $80,000 would see her annual pay reduced by $2,000. Abus drive making $20,000, by contrast, would lose around $500 a year, Fowler explained.The plan will be discussed at a meeting between union officials and the district administration on May 21 starting at 10:30 a.m. at Marathon High School.By DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.com MONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS Hammock creatordiesKey Biscayne developer Fritz E. Scharenberg whose plans for a huge housing complex on oceanfront property in North Key Largo led instead to the creation of a state protected site has died.As the developer of Port Bougainville ... he is indirectly responsible for the creation of what is now known as the Dagny Johnson Key Largo Hammock Botanical State Park, says a paid obituary in Sundays Miami Herald .Scharenberg, who died March 26 at age 79, was the lead developer on Port Bougainvillea, planned as a sprawling community of condominiums, hotels, canals and a marina on about 400 acres that now comprise the centerpiece of the Key Largo Hammock park now home to 84 protected species of plants and animals, including wild cotton, mahogany mistletoe and the American crocodile, according to the Florida Park Service. Scharenberg acquired more than 400 acres of North Key Largo from the failed Solarelle development in 1980.Although Monroe County was operating under the Area of Critical State Concern legislation imposed by the state because of unchecked development in the Florida Keys, the Mediterranean-themed Port Bougainville was slated to include more than 2,600 condominium units and 300 slips in its marina. The revelation, largely due to a Miami Herald investigation headed by Carl Hiassen and Brian Duffy, that Port Bougainville building plans filed with Monroe County varied substantially from plans given to potential buyers caused state regulators to take a hard look at the project and many others slated for North Key Largo.Scharenbergs grand plan for North Key Largo ground to a halt in 1984 when his primary lender, Continental Illinois National Bank and Trust, called in the loan in the banks failed effort to avoid closing.

EDITORIALNot right time for tax hikeLETTERS TO THE EDITORBottom line:MoneyIn reading comments and commentary about rent charged to The Studios of Key West, it seems to me that weve been missing the big picture. The Armory is state-owned; the Historic Florida Keys Foundation serves only as a property manager. I tried to get details from the foundation about its contract with the state but no one responded to my e-mail. I do not know whether they work for a flat fee or a percentage of the rental proceeds or to what extent their own operations depend on collecting rental income from stateowned properties. But I do know they are doing what many believe should be done: Managing this state-owned asset as any business would. The problem is this: The goals of businesses and of governments are not the same. Governments exist to maintain safe, stable communities that best serve the needs of most of their citizens over the long term. Just read the preamble to the U.S. Constitution if you dont know what I mean. And do note the promote the general welfare. phrase. Businesses exist to make money. Some may argue that businesses provide goods and services; that is true. However, any MBAcan tell you that the primary function of business is to make a profit no matter how it is done and do it quickly. That the Studios contributes to the quality of life in our city, that it is part of the cultural fabric that attracts residentretirees and high-quality tourism, that it is a continuation of Key Wests long history as an art and literature haven, that the Armory building itself was constructed to serve our community all that is irrelevant to the rental income bottom line. Perhaps the state and Historic Florida Keys Foundation have a potential new tenant lined up or a buyer. Since neither office has defended its position, we do not know. What we do know is that we who live here will be poorer for their narrow, money-focused world view. To borrow an old saying, those interested in just making a profit know the price of everything and the value of nothing. The next time someone tells you government needs to be run like a business, think about how that approach impacts our quality of life. Pat Cummings Key WestStudios needs to stayI have been visiting Key West for more than 35 years and am absolutely in love with the city, its people and cultural activities. In recent years, the last four to be exact, I have been attending events at The Studios of Key West. This past winter, my stay was particularly enhanced by my participation in Michael Marreros course Digital Photography: Tools of the Trade, the multi-faith folk and gospel celebration, several exhibitions and openings, the gardens and so much more. Furthermore, I especially appreciate the outstanding property renovations that were completed at the Armory by TSKW. What an addition to Key Wests historic charm. It is my understanding that the lease of the historic Armory is in jeopardy. How tragic. I urge that the Historic Florida Keys Foundation accept The Studios of Key Wests proposal to pay a fairmarket rent (as established by the two fair-market rent appraisals recently conducted) for the historic Armory building for the duration of TSKWs lease. To do less would be a great loss to Key West, its residents and visitors. As Seneca so brilliantly said, As the soil, however rich it may be, cannot be productive without cultivation, so the mind without culture can never produce good fruit. Let the cultural activities of The Studios of Key West grow, producing continuous excellent Key West fruit without impediment. Joann Eldridge Wellfleet, Mass.Some calling for tax hike for schools, but district needs track record of responsibilityBy the time you read this, well know if the Monroe County School Board decided to ask voters for more money in November. Ron Martin, longtime principal at Coral Shores High School before he was elected to the board two years ago, wants the public to vote up or down on additional school taxes. He cites feedback at a series of public hearings in recent weeks, which has mostly come in wellrehearsed speeches from district employees or members of their families. With another round of cuts coming in the neighborhood of $6 million on top of $9 million in cuts made this past year, Martin and others say its time to raise the local tax levy for schools. It looks unlikely, however, that Martin will muster enough votes on the five-member board. Only Duncan Mathewson (whos not running for re-election) has signaled any support. The irony, of course, is that no one should be surprised the district is facing hard times and more cuts this coming fiscal year, especially Mathewson who was the critical swing vote back in 2009 for a big property tax hike. In July 2009, the board set a tentative tax rate of 3.411 mills, or $341.10 for every $100,000 of assessed property value. That represented a 16.7 percent increase over rollback, which is the millage needed to collect the same tax revenue as the previous year. Then-School Board member Steve Pribramsky and John Dick voted no, citing revenue estimates showing the district was spending far more than it could expect to collect in the wake of the Keys real estate bust. Back then, they warned that the budget submitted by then Acting Superintendent Mike Henriquez needed to grab $3.4 million from emergency reserves just to balance the books. There were no cuts and little belt tightening. You know the rest of the story. District reserves which stood at $7.3 million (6.9 percent of the operating budget) earlier in 2009 are now bumping the state-mandated minimums. And the wailing chorus is ratcheting up the pressure. Too bad the district didnt make those critical expense cuts back in 2009-10 when there was still a chance to head off this train wreck. Now its cleaning up the mess and a lot more hard work needs to be done before taxpayers will feel like paying more for a ticket to ride this train. The Historic Florida Keys Foundation wants to increase The Studios of Key Wests rent to $143,000 annually,up from $116,000. Be a childs heroMay 9 is Childrens Mental Health Awareness Day. The theme of this years national campaign is recognizing adults who have played important roles in the lives of young people their heroes. Heroes are ordinary people who accomplish the extraordinary by acting as a stable, positive, ongoing influence in the lives of children. All children need a hero. Whose hero can you be today? If its true that it takes a village to raise a child, then I grow increasingly concerned at what I see as the shrinking size of our village. For years, we have relied on our schools and their legions of teachers, counselors and other professionals who have kept our children under their watchful eyes. As their numbers have fallen to budget cuts, so have the social-service providers who have traditionally served as the safety net. There are far fewer eyes on our children today despite the ever-increasing stress faced by the American family. Parents, extended family and neighbors, please be mindful of every childs mental health. Depression, anger, anxiety and risk-taking behaviors are not necessarily normal responses to normal growth and development. Talk to the children in your lives, know their friends, encourage their spirituality. Reach out for help when they are struggling. Be a childs hero. Deborah Matthews Clinical coordinator Guidance/Care Center MarathonBusiness as usualMany people are aware of the health crisis that Lisa Cannon from ACut Above Hair Salon is going through. We are completely confident that Lisa will return to her station and continue her great service as in the past. Many people have asked how to help encourage her during her recovery time. Well, the bills go on even while Lisa is not able to stand her post. The very best way you can help Lisa during her recovery is to continue to patronize the salon and allow the staff to give the same great service and special attention. The very best thing we could do is give her the gift of business as usual upon her return. Tricia Farthing MarathonNo fishing closureThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission is the states appointed partner of Biscayne National Park, the marine sanctuary located just south of Miami. It was in that role, representing the commission as its vice chairman, that I testified before a congressional subcommittee reviewing the Biscayne National Park general management plan. We are concerned about the recent proposal by the National Park Service that would severely limit access to areas of the park by the public, particularly fishermen and boaters. After years of study, a number of proposals were made to protect this magnificent marine sanctuary. The ark, without involving the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, which by law is responsible for managing fish and wildlife resources in the state, issued a final recommendation that would virtually ban fishing in an area of about 10,000 marine acres. There clearly was no effort to examine several sciencebased management plans or deal with any compromise or alternative. Other more-reasonable alternatives include allowing fishing but with more restrictive fishing regulations or speciesspecific spawning closures. Recreational activities in this area provide a substantial economic engine for South Florida, creating a ripple effect of economic benefits across the entire state. I want to express the view that the state and the FWC are essential partners with the federal government in making sure the park will be enjoyed by generations to come. We know from experience that in order to achieve our goals, public access and recreation must be sustained and of course sustainable. There must be a balance between appropriate management and accessibility. Kenneth Wright Vice chairman, FWC OrlandoRestaurant comes throughGrace Jones Daycare would like to thank Gary Graves and Joe Caligiuri of Keys Fisheries for once again selling their barstools to benefit our center. This time, it was a grand total of $1,000. It is truly unbelievable how much support we get from this great restaurant and their patrons. Gary and Joe are very much involved with helping our community and its needs and we are very proud to have such good friends that support our children. We cannot thank them enough for all they do. Iris Coe Grace Jones Whale-site case to trialThe case of an animalrights activist charged with crimes at Key Largos Marine Mammal Conservancy could go to trial in June.Arnold Chris Lagergren, 41, of Miami is charged with a felony count of disrupting an animal enterprise by tampering with a fence at the bayside rehabilitation site last August. In addition to the seldom-used felony violation, Lagergren is charged with misdemeanor trespass and criminal mischief. Two pilot whales were being treated at the MMC following a Lower Keys stranding in May 2011. Lagergren had volunteered in the effort but said he became concerned about health and building code violations, he wrote on his website. He was later banned from the MMC property by group leaders who believed he was providing information to critics of the organization. Federal officials eventually said the whales could not survive on their own, and approved moving them to SeaWorld of Orlando. Lagergren apparently is affiliated with the international Animal Liberation Front organization, which advocates direct action against animal captivity. Around 2 a.m. Aug. 21, Lagergren reportedly was chased from the MMC by an off-duty Miami police officer who was volunteering to help care for the whales. The officer pursued Lagergrens car and held the defendant at gunpoint in the parking lot of the adjacent Hampton Inn. AMonroe County Sheriffs Office arrest report says two suspects trespassed at the MMC and damaged a fence in an apparent attempt to free the whales.The defense filed motions to take statements from Javier Ortiz, the off-duty Miami officer, along with the local deputies. They also sought to depose former MMC President Robert Lingenfelser and other organization officials. Delays in scheduling depositions caused the case to be postponed.Lagergrens case has received international attention in the animal-rights movement, with supporters launching fundraising campaigns for his defense.An online petition argues against prosecuting Lagergren on a felony count: Animal activism is not comparable to terrorism, and it is wrong for your county to make an unfair example of Arnold Christopher Lagergren.The petition has received more than 3,500 virtual signatures.Lagergren faces felony chargesIN THE COURTSVillage, board reach dealAfter years of negotiations and debate, Islamorada and Key Largo have officially decided to share wastewater treatment. The Key Largo Water Treatment Districts fivemember board of commissioners voted 3-2 on May 1 on a contract negotiated for months by engineering and legal staff from both entities. Islamoradas Village Council voted 5-0 on the contract earlier in the day.Key Largo commissioners Charles Brooks and Norman Higgins voted against the contract. Brooks called it very disappointing and said he objected to the process of negotiating the deal.Higgins said the contract is a sound deal, but that percent of the people from Key Largo he spoke with said dont do it. We dont need Islamorada. The next step in the process will be for the village to finish negotiations with Veolia Water North America, the international firm that will build a pipeline from Islamorada to Key Largos treatment facility at mile marker 100.5. Estimates for the pipeline are as high as $103 million. The agreement between Key Largo and Islamorada had to be finished before negotiations can wrap between the village and Veolia, Islamorada Councilman Ted Blackburn said. One contract leads to another. We had to decide where were going with Key Largo first, he said. But if the negotiations with Veolia are finished within the next two months, it will be well before the September deadline to be eligible for $20 million in state money that Gov. Rick Scott approved for Islamorada wastewater projects. The money is part of a $50 million bond. The other $30 million will go toward Lower Keys sewer projects.As part of the deal with Key Largo, Islamorada will pay the taxing district $10.17 million to treat 1.1 million gallons of wastewater a day. The village will pay $1.5 million to Key Largo the day the contract is signed by the two entities. This works out to $1.017 million as an initial payment and an initial charge of $482,400 to pay for upgrades to the Key Largo treatment plant.Under the agreement, the village will pay Key Largo the remaining $9.15 million, plus 4 percent interest, in monthly installments starting in June 2013. Key Largos 2.3-milliongallons-per day plant will be upgraded to be capable of treating 3.4 million gallons per day.Now the work on a pipeline gets under wayBy DAVID GOODHUE dgoodhue@keysreporter.comUPPER KEYSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com

The story of the tieline began in the late 1970s when three engineering reports recommended connecting to the mainland power grid for greater reliability of electrical service. Keys Energy, then known as City Electric System at the time, went to the Key West City Commission for approval of a $50 million bond and approached the Florida Keys Electric Cooperative for an agreement to connect to the mainland via its transmission lines from Marathon to the mainland. The Key West City Commission granted approval of the bond issuance in November 1980, but negotiations with the Florida Keys Electric Cooperative proved to be more of a challenge and were not finalized until 1985. While negotiations were under way with the co-op, Keys Energy began moving forward with construction of the 138-kilovolt transmission line from Key West to Marathon. On May 8, 1987, the tieline to the mainland power grid began operation. Employees Frank Cartonia and Richard Castillo stood by at the Big Pine Key substation while Terry ODell, a power system coordinator, coordinated with Cartonia and Castillo to energize the tieline at 1:56 p.m. and connect Keys Energy customers to the mainland power grid. During the 1988 fiscal year, the first full year operating with the tieline, rate payers saved $3.9 million compared to what they would have paid had the electricity been completely generated locally by the utility, Keys energy says.Deal reached with electric cooperativeUTILITIES The tieline is energized 25 years ago Tuesday.You have protections from debt collectorsDebt collectors calling? You have rights. The debt collector must tell you within five days of initial contact the amount you owe, the name of the creditor and how you should proceed if you think you dont owe the money. If you dispute the debt, send the collection agency a letter within 30 days saying so. Once the debt collection company receives your letter, it must stop trying to collect until it sends you written proof of the amount you owe. Debt collectors may not call you before 8 a.m. or after 9 p.m. unless you say its OK. They may not call you at work if they know, or if you tell them, that your employer prohibits such calls. If you tell them to contact you only by mail or not to contact you at all, they must comply (its best to put your request in writing). If you have an attorney representing you over the debt, the collector must deal with the lawyer, not you. Collection agents may not harass, oppress or abuse you or any third parties they contact, the Federal Trade Commission states. They may not threaten violence or harm, publish the name of debtors, use profanity or make repeated calls to annoy someone. Debt collectors are not permitted to lie in an attempt to get you to pay up. They cant, for instance, say you have committed a crime or claim that they work for the government or for a credit reporting agency. Report problems with debt collectors to your states attorney generals office and to the FTC, at www.ftccomplaintassis tant.gov/ If you feel your rights have been violated, you can sue a collector in state or federal court, but be sure to file within one year of the date of the violation.Harassment among things that are bannedMcClatchy-TribuneCONSUMERS BUSINESS BRIEFSAttorney Lupino hosts seminarCommunity Bank of Floridas Key Largo branch will host Jim Lupino, an attorney at Hershoff, Lupino and Mulick LLP, during a Thursday seminar on wills and trusts, titled Where Will Your Money Go.

Molina joined First State in 2007 as a switchboard operator, became a deposit representative in 2009 and then moved to Internet banking rep in 2011.Joblessness rate expected to fallThe Federal Reserve upgraded its outlook for the economy, predicting the unemployment rate would fall to as low as 7.8 percent in the fourth quarter a drop that could have a significant effect on the presidential election. Just three months ago, most Fed policymakers expected the nations jobless figure to be 8.2 percent, its current rate, or higher in the last three months of the year. The improved outlook, issued at the end of a twoday Fed meeting, reflects a sharper-than-expected drop in unemployment in recent months and projections for slightly faster economic growth this year, including some improvement in the downtrodden housing market. Nonetheless, the U.S. economy will expand only moderately over coming quarters, the central bank said in a policy statement that accompanied the new quarterly forecast. McClatchy-Tribune MOLINA

Coach Lance Martin said with seven starters returning on that side of the ball, its time to open up the playbook. Hes installing an Iformation offense in place of the run-heavy wing-T Marathon ran in 2011. It opens things up for us and its not as conservative as the wing-T, Martin said. We have a little better personnel, especially looking down the road a couple years. The Dolphins will field another young team in 2012, with just six seniors out of 35 players. The team has 16 juniors and 11 players that are sophomores or younger. Junior Roberto Perez has been taking snaps as the No. 1 quarterback and is in line to win the job, Martin said. He worked hard in the weight room and on the field and were preparing him to be our starter, he said.

The Eagles (7-9), regional qualifiers as runners-up in District 16-2Aended the 2012 campaign Thursday, falling to 15-2Achampion Westwood Christian, 12-0. Westwood is a very good team, ICS coach Bruce Davis said. They definitely have a chance to go pretty far. Westwood (16-5) played Miami Christian in Tuesdays regional semifinal (results pending at press time). Kadian Carter, the one senior on the Eagle roster, closed out his prep career with the teams only hit against Westwood. Carter also took part in the clubs regional highlight the seasons first double play. One of our goals this year was to get a double play, and we went the whole season before finally doing it in the last game, Davis said. All our fans started cheering, and the Westwood people couldnt figure out what was going on. Shortstop Fernando Garcia, an eighth-grader, scooped a grounder in front of second base. Garcia tagged the bag and threw to Carter at first, who used every inch of his lanky frame to reach out and snag ball for the twin-kill. The Eagles now have a roster full of veteran starters eligible to return in 2013, including seniors-to-be Matt Cavanagh (who struck out three Westwood hitters in the regional), versatile Dylan Ayres and Sean Tiedemann. We havent won our district in a really long time, Davis said. Now we have a goal for next year.

The teams will play one half against each other starting at 6 p.m. Marathon and Coral Shores are among 14 South Florida football programs that dropped out of the Florida High School Athletic Association to create the independent Southeast Football Conference. The idea for the conference grew largely out of a lack of parity in the last round of FHSAAredistricting. Marathon was bunched in with state powers University School and Hollywood-Chaminade Prep in District 16-3Athis year. The Dolphins were one of five teams to bail out of that district.Perez is likely QBFrom Offense,1B Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYMarathon High School junior Roberto Perez tosses passes during a Thursday football practice.Perez is being groomed to assume the starting quarterback role for the Dolphins. of pitcher Garrett Pita. He wore a red shirt with his sons name and number on it. This is nice, he said. Theyll be able to get on the field one last time. Goldstein called the seven seniors Pita, Michael Abreu, Tommy Ruffennach. Matt Chelekis, Reny Garcia, Joseph Varela and Donjae Valdez (manager Devin Barber was also honored) and, carrying a rose and accompanied by their parents, they walked out to the third-based line. Menendez hugged the players and the parents as Bosco, in a black and gray dress, snapped photos. Especially poignant was the introduction of Varela, the second baseman who missed the last part of the season because of a cancerous growth. We love you, Mr. Joseph Varela, Goldstein said over the microphone. The softball game began before a small scattering of fans, and the coaches among them, Al DiFabio, Juanito Menendez, Peter Fraga, J.J. Fallon, Freddy Varela, Dexter Butler and Robert James (broadcaster Rick Lopez played first base) took the field. Before long, there was Joseph Varela knocking in two runs with a double, and there was lefty-batting Miguel Menendez, in high striped socks, lofting a fly ball to right field. The game continued until, finally, with the sun sinking, Freddy Varela, Josephs dad, homered to give the coaches a 10-9 victory. The seniors and those who had been seniors long ago walked off the field, happy that a mundane Saturday had turned into a special memory.Seniors get a fun sendoffFrom Conchs,1BGrouper wait well worth itDespite less-than-stellar conditions for getting to the reef, the opening of grouper season last Tuesday did not disappoint. The fishing has been excellent, with lots of blacks caught on the wrecks and deeper edges of the reef. And there are plenty of gags and reds coming off the shallower patch reefs and channel humps. Yellowtailing remains very good, with respectable numbers of flags showing up in the coolers. These bigger fish are being taken mostly in the deeper areas of the reef from 70 feet out. But there are abundant keeper to mediumsize fish in the shallower 30to 60-foot zone. There are also fair numbers of muttons mixed in on the reef. Most are in the 5to 10-pound class. The muttons should soon bite aggressively on the wrecks and rough bottom patches in over 100 feet of water as they begin their annual spawn. There is a profusion of permit on the artificial reefs and high-profile wrecks. While they average 20 to 30 pounds, there are some fish over 40 pounds among the bunch. Congratulations to angler Bruce Boring and Capt. Marty Lewis of the Main Attraction on their win in the Marathon Bull and Cow Dolphin Tournament over the weekend. The combined bull and cow weight of 66.4 pounds netted them top honors. They also won for largest dolphin (42 pounds) and largest three fish (total weight 95.4 pounds). Word has it Lewis traveled 40-plus miles out to find his winning fish. So that tells you something about the current state of dolphin fishing. Tarpon are biting well at the bridges and in Key West Harbor. There are multiple tarpon tournaments going on right now, so if youre out recreationally, please give the tourney guys some space. There is still a bounty of sea trout and mangrove snapper on the banks in Florida Bay. And there are some decent gag grouper fishing on the wrecks in the Gulf areas.The weeks bestGuests from the United Kingdom, Alistar MacLeod and Ben Gilmore, scored five fat red grouper along with mutton, mangrove and yellowtail snapper with guide Neil Apley on their rental boat from Captain Pips Marina and Hideaway in Marathon. The Papa Pips was busy, too. Ron Mossotti and Robin Turner caught grouper and snapper with Capt. Bob Kidwell and mate Bobby Dickson. And Gary and Judy Jackson caught a bunch of dolphin with Capt. Howard Kelley. The SeaSquared spent the week tarpon fishing at the Bahia Honda Bridge and shark fishing in Florida Bay. We also did some sea trout and mangrove snapper fishing.

Call Laura at 743-5551 LivingNew amenities take the rough out of roughing it Those of you who wiggle out of family camping trips by claiming youre just not into roughing it will have to find another excuse. Arange of camping options and innovations have made it far more comfortable to eat, sleep and otherwise spend time in the Great Outdoors. Soft ruggedis what so many Americans are seeking in their outdoor experience today, says Jim Rogers, chairman and CEO of Kampgrounds of America, or KOA, which runs about 500 campgrounds around the country, including one on Sugarloaf Key. So much so that he now refers to the camping industry as outdoor hospitality. KOAhas beefed up some of its campgrounds to include both basic and luxury cabins the latter being the kind more often equated with family resorts than places to pitch tents. Rental costs $100 to $150 per night. Some sites offer coffee carts, pancake breakfasts, kidsactivities and entertainment. Campers who want things a bit more but not much more rustic can browse the equipment lining the shelves at wellstocked outdoors stores (although some of the fancy new goodies may hike the price of that simple camping trip). Take, for instance, REIs Kingdom 8 tent, which is big enough to sleep eight. For $529, the tent is not just waterproof and bug-proof but also has moveable room dividers to create separate spaces with private entrances. Fill it with cots, airbeds and perhaps a ceiling fan created for tents, and youre bound to get in a good nights sleep. Toss in another $100, and you can add to it a garage to store food or gear or use it as a place for the family dog to sleep. Nifty outdoor stoves and cooking gear have made campfire-cooked canned beans and hot dogs moot, unless you really like them. REIs camp kitchen, for example, is a folding trove of food-prep workspace and storage all of which can be carried around in a zipper bag. It even includes hooks for hanging up spatulas, and windproof screens so the elements dont mess with your cooking. Coleman, one of the biggest manufactures of camping gear, sells a camping oven that fits handily onto one of the companys twoor three-burner grills. Dont even think about grainy cowboy coffee, or even those classic enamel percolators. French presses, specifically engineered for outdoor use, are now the way to go if youre picky about your coffee preparation (although the experience may not be exactly what youre used to in your own kitchen). Coleman sells a propanepowered drip coffee maker that you dont even have to put over heat. Freeze-dried food now includes dark chocolate cheesecake, spinach puttanesca and Indian dishes. And the retailer Eastern Mountain Sports sells solar chargers for your portable electronics because, as its website says, Trees dont come with electrical outlets to charge your iPhone. Some purists snub the idea of making camping more comfortable. They question whether lugging and using all that stuff dilutes the nature of, well, getting back to nature. Much of the fancy new stuff is meant to be driven, not carried, into a campsite, and is heavy enough that retailers dont recommend carrying it far. So can you really get away from it all when you are bringing it all with you? There are so many different kinds of camping experiences, and they are all camping, says Avery Stonich, spokeswoman for the Outdoor Industry Association. Its all what it means to the individual. You can even go out to dinner if you go camping, she says. All of which has spurred a newfound interest in camping among folks who might not have tried it otherwise, says Stuart Bourdon, editor and associate publisher of the magazine Camping Life. Campgrounds near lakes or the ocean are particularly popular, with reservations filling up a good two months in advance, he says. The camping experience can be as close to a home kitchen and bedroom experience as you want to make it, Bourdon says. The way Rogers at KOA sees it, the facilities and the gear are only small parts of the larger experience of being on a campground, which he calls the last small town in America. People who consider campingthe Marriott will be very accommodated both in terms of the facilities available and the amenities, he says, adding, Its hard to have a campfire in a Marriott hotel room.They include solar charges for electronicsAssociated PressGREAT OUTDOORS REIs Kingdom 8 tent sleeps eight and is waterproof and bug-proof.Theres also an optional add-on to create more space for storage or your pet.Paddleboarders race this weekendPaddleboard and selfpropelled watercraft enthusiasts are to circumnavigate the Southernmost City during the 12-mile Key West Paddleboard Classic, taking place Thursday though Sunday in and around Key West.

Based on more than five years of research on the known, probable and possible causes of breast cancer, Busting Cancer is an initiative that encourages women to raise their vitamin D3 blood levels to 60 ng/ml to 80 ng/ml; stop using hormonal contraceptive drugs (try a hormone-free IUD, a diaphragm or tubal ligation instead); and to learn to enjoy a cancer-blocking diet. All money goes to the National Breast Cancer Prevention Project. Busting Breast Cancers board treasurer is Key West guesthouse owner Roxanne Fleszar. La Pierre painted the plein air 16-by-20 piece in April 2010, just months before watercolorist Sandford Birdsey died at her home, studio and gallery on Simonton Street, where she had lived for more than 30 years.

More sleep equals less hungerHeres a new spin on the saying, If you snooze you lose. What if the lose part applied to your weight? No, its not as simple as going to sleep and waking up slimmer. Alas. But a recent Harvard study does suggest that people who get a good nights rest find it easier to resist overeating especially when it comes to gorging on high-calorie foods like ice cream, cheeseburgers or French fries. We all know the temptation: Youre drowsy during the day, get hungry and head to the snacks aisle or a vending machine for junk food or a candy bar. Daytime sleepiness was positively related to greater hunger and elevated preference for high-calorie foods, concludes the study, led by researcher William Killgore, an assistant professor of psychology at Harvard Medical School. MRIs of study volunteers showed why. Sleepier people had less activity in the self-control part of the brain the prefrontal cortex. Thats the area that puts the brakes on and slows you down from doing things you shouldnt do like eating too much fattening, unhealthy food, says Killgore. If youre sleepy, youre more likely to reach out and take a few extra bites of food or go for that extra dessert or say yes to something you wouldnt have, says Killgore. New preliminary findings show that women are even more inclined than men to overeat and to prefer junk food when they get sleepy during the day. People think theyre so busy that, if theyre going to chintz on something, theyre going to cut out some sleep. And thats one thing they shouldnt do, says Killgore. It affects our ability to control food intake. Twenty or 30 years of doing that is going to make us larger and more unhealthy.That means weightier situationMcClatchy-TribuneTO YOUR HEALTH Subscriptions 743-5551
