Story, 8A Gueverra's on boardFlorida Keys Community College's board makes it official,approving Jonathan Gueverra's three-year contract to be president. Story, 2A Photo courtesy THE TURTLE HOSPITALSaturday was a big day for the Zinsmeister family of Winter Haven.Tom,Chris and Zach came down for Memorial Day weekend.They intended to head out to fish but instead ending up rescuing a 370-pound female green sea turtle, now dubbed Farley,3 miles north of Marathon on the bayside.The turtle was entangled in trap line and its right flipper is beginning to self-amputate.Farley will undergo a full amputation at the Turtle Hospital in Marathon.FARLEY'S RESCUEDBallot qualifying to startIt seems that for the past several months, another day brought another candidate announcing a run for office in the Keys. Monday, they can make it official and there is no shortage of candidates who plan to do just that. In one of the busiest election years in recent history, there were 46 declared candidates for various countywide and local offices in Monroe County as of Tuesday. And that doesn't include four each for the state House and state Senate, and six for the congressional district in which the Keys lie. Official qualifying to get on the ballot, either through paying a fee or collecting petitions from registered voters, starts at noon Monday and ends at noon June 8. "I think it's fine, I think it's great," said Phil Schaeffer, chairman of the Monroe County Democratic Executive Committee. "I think it makes for an interesting election and will get a lot of people to the polls." "I think you need to do a lot of homework on who you want leading the country, from the local level up to the president of the United States," said George Neugent, a Republican county commissioner halfway through his fourth and what he said is his final term. The two most crowded races are for school Board District 3, whose seat is opening because two-termer Duncan Mathewson declined to run again; and for sheriff because Sheriff Bob Peryam is retiring. Both races have drawn five candidates thus far, and the winner in each serves four years. The seats of all five constitutional officers sheriff, clerk of courts, tax collector, property appraiser and elections supervisor are up.

Story, 2ALIVE AND LET LIVE?Republican Rivera files forHouseThe incumbent congressman for the U.S. House of Representatives district now covering the Florida Keys officially submitted his intent to seek re-election on May 21. Miami public-affairs consultant David Rivera, 46, was a four-term member of the Florida House before winning a seat in Congress as a Republican in 2010. His filing brings to six the number of candidates seeking a two-year term from the new District 26. U.S. Rep. Ileana RosLehtinen, who represented Monroe County and coastal Miami-Dade County in Congress for the past decade, will seek re-election in a redrawn district that does not include the Keys. Since his 2010 election, Rivera has faced investigations into his role managing a pro-slots political campaign on behalf of the Flagler Dog Track while he served in the Florida House. Money paid by the dog track went to a marketing company run by two of Rivera's relatives. Track officials said they were dealing directly with Rivera. Rivera dismisses any hint of wrongdoing. "Congressman Rivera is focused on several issues ... including improving our economy, creating jobs and bringing fiscal responsibility back to Washington," a Rivera campaign spokesman said. Congressional districts are adjusted after each once-adecade census. Florida gained two House seats because of population growth. Joe Garcia, 48, a Miami lawyer who ran as a Democrat against Rivera in the 2010 general election, has said he plans to seek the District 26 seat. As of press time Tuesday, Garcia had not filed papers with the Florida Division of Elections.

Aspate of crashes and arrests kept law enforcement on the move throughout the three-day weekend but no one died in a holiday-related accident, according to information available at press time. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers made five arrests for boating under the influence, all while keeping watch over the Sandbar, a popular anchoring spot off Whale Harbor in Islamorada. "It was extremely busy at the Sandbar," said FWC Officer Bobby Dube. "There were a lot more people and boats than in recent years, maybe more than I've ever seen." Three drink-boating arrests were made Monday after two on Sunday. Acrowded boat capsized Monday off Whale Harbor, throwing several people into the water but no one was injured. Another boat returning from the Sandbar late Monday crashed into mangroves on Windley Key, sending two men to Mariners Hospital with moderate injuries, including broken ribs, Dube said. The crash was not reported immediately so investigation continued Tuesday, Dube said.

The portion of bed taxes paid on motel rooms and short-term rentals that is allocated to regional districts for capital improvements apparently will reflect an improvement in occupancy and daily rates based on numbers seen over the past several months, TDC office manager Lynda Stuart said Thursday. "Revenues have been strong and very encouraging," Stuart said. "It was a warm winter but still a good winter for tourism here." TDC staff will meet with the TDC's district advisory councils at the regional panels'June meetings to discuss the budget situation for fiscal year 2013, which begins Oct. 1. "This is the front end of the budget process and numbers are not totally complete," Stuart said. "The projected revenues also could be subject to change if we're hit by a storm or something else happens this summer that could curtail revenue."

Kolhage has no competition thus far just like Republican Sylvia Murphy, closing out a full term after serving a partial term following the death of Commissioner Murray Nelson; and first-term Heather Carruthers, a Democrat seeking re-election. So far there are two candidates for elections supervisor to replace Harry Sawyer, who is retiring after serving since 1988: Former Key West City Commissioner Barry Gibson, a Republican, and Democrat Joyce Griffin, the assistant elections supervisor the past 19 years (and 28-year staffer in the office). Gibson "might have had a better shot at county clerk because it's like running against an incumbent," Schaeffer said. So far, Democratic Tax Collector Dee Dee Henriquez, in office since 2001, has no opposition. Neither does Republican Property Appraiser Karl Borglum, appointed by Gov. Rick Scott last year to fill out the term of Ervin Higgs, who retired after more than 30 years in the job. However, four people have signed up to run to replace Kolhage as county clerk all Republicans. Crowded election getting officialFrom Candidates,1AAssessorstill looking at tax forNavyContinuing his effort to determine if property taxes can be applied to privately owned military housing in Key West, Monroe County Property Appraiser Karl Borglum is reviewing state documents that trace the jurisdiction of the land in question. In 2007, ownership of U.S. Navy housing but not the land on which it sits in the Southernmost City was transferred to the private 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. Borglum says that based on his discussions with attorneys for Southeast, "their position is that conditions have not changed from 2007 and that no taxable interest exists." He said they are working on providing documents that establish there is no local jurisdiction over the properties. Also in the mix are a series of documents from the Florida Archives that suggest that based on requests from the U.S. Department of the Navy, then-Gov. Lawton Chiles signed a cessation agreement two decades ago establishing "concurrent jurisdiction." Borglum says his office received that information Tuesday morning. Although the issue of local governments taxing privately held military housing is just now coming up in Key West, it has played out with various results all over the country. In the 2005 Air Force Law Review, attorney Phillip Morrison wrote, "The key to finding out whether a state tax law will reach a privatized housing project is to first look at how legislative jurisdiction was established on a military reservation." He calls concurrent jurisdiction "a hybrid of state and federal authority.... If a state ceded jurisdiction to the United States, some (or all) legislative powers may have been reserved by the state at the time. The original grant letters ... between the state and federal authorities will help determine whether local authorities may tax private developments on military bases." From the cessation document signed by Chiles on Nov. 12, 1991, concurrent jurisdiction allows for "all process, civil or criminal, issuing under authority of the state of Florida, or any of the courts or judicial officers thereof, may be executed by the proper officers ... within the limits and extent of said lands." Chiles agreed the Navy holdings would be taxexempt as long as the property "continue[s] to be owned and occupied by the United States." As it stands, Southeast Housing LLC, a division of Balfour Beatty Communities, owns all the military housing in Key West.But owner says it can prove none are owedBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST Airfields'upgrades focus on CustomsU.S. Customs and Border Protection could have new digs at both Key West International and Florida Keys Marathon airports within the next two years. The Monroe County Commission on May 16 approved the first part of a three-phase project in Key West that county Airports Director Peter Horton says will cost $2 million and take two years to complete. "The first phase deals with security items for Customs hardening the building and bringing it up to post 9/11 standards," he said. "The second is when we get to rearranging the space and expanding the building somewhat." The initial contract was awarded to Big Pine Keybased Pedro Falcon Electrical Contractors Inc. and is for $305,660. It is funded by the state Department of Transportation. Horton said the upgrade is necessary to convert the Customs office from a "general aviation facility" to a "federal inspection station." "It's a designation we had in 1998 when we built the building, but regulations changed after" the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the U.S., he said. "Upgrades should start in about 30 days. The contract was approved and they just have to mobilize their crew and start." Horton said a main reason the upgrades are being sought is so that Key West International could serve Cuba. No airlines do, though C&TCharters, which flies from Miami to Cuba, is interested in providing the service. "We have a port-ofentry status for up to 10 passengers at this point and we're doing the work at Customs to have port of entry for 70 passengers," Horton said. Meanwhile, various county and Marathon officials continue to work on a Customs port-of-entry office at Florida Keys Marathon Airport. Their latest meeting with U.S. Department of Homeland Security officials was on May 15. County Mayor David Rice said Homeland Security has drastically scaled back on expensive remodels to construct an office at the airport. "When we first met with them, they gave us their dream and it was $1 million," he said. "They ... dropped on the table something very close to what we wanted and much simplified. We don't have a cost on it yet, but it's no longer a $1 million plan." "We were thrilled with the fact that Homeland Security was trying to help us out and make it easier on us," said Marathon Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay, who's been pushing the idea for several years. Horton said the county has $250,000 in federal Department of Transportation funding in place to fund a Marathon Customs office at the airport. It would be a 50-50 match, he said. In addition, another $250,000 could be available once DOT's fiscal year rolls around in July, Horton said. "If it is more, there is a strong possibility we could get additional money," he said. Rice said he envisions any match being paid for by local businesses, along with the county and city of Marathon. But he was clear there's no final price tag on the construction. "We have some local businesses here that see a benefit that will put some money in, then we take a look at the rest of the money and we would then split that probably between Marathon and the county," he said.Work planned at Key West and MarathonBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comAIRPORTSStudents ready for the next levelAs temperatures rise and the summer lull approaches, high-school students in the Florida Keys are preoccupied by the annual pomp and circumstance of graduation and the associated festivities. This year, Monroe County School District officials are preparing to hand diplomas to 547 graduating seniors participating in three commencement ceremonies next week. That's 320 from Key West High School, 64 from Marathon High and 164 at Coral Shores. The three schools will bestow the academic distinctions of summa, magna and cum laude in addition to the traditional honors of valedictorian and salutatorian. The collegiate honorifics are for students who have achieved a weighted grade point average above 4.0 by taking Advanced Placement and dual-enrollment college classes. Suma cum laude is reserved for those earning a 4.5 or better, magna cum laude applies to those with a 4.25 or better and cum laude is for those with a 4.0 or better. At Coral Shores, students will be recognized June 6 beginning at 7 p.m. in the gym. Marathon High School students take the walk June 7 beginning at 8 p.m. on the football field; if it rains, the ceremony will be moved to the school auditorium. And in Key West, graduation is June 8 beginning at 8 p.m. at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium on Kennedy Drive. Each school is also hosting a seniors banquet in which awards and special recognitions are presented, and investiture ceremonies offering distinguished graduating seniors tassels and pins denoting various scholastic achievements. Last year, there were 580 Keys high-school graduates.Graduation ceremonies start June 6By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSGueverra is officialThe Florida Keys Community College Board of Trustees on Tuesday unanimously approved a three-year employment contract for Jonathan Gueverra, the college's sixth president. Gueverra is moving to the Keys from Washington, D.C., and will take over on July 1 from Larry Tyree, who's retiring. Board Chairman Ed Scales said Gueverra wanted the deal to be for longer than three years but a state Board of Education rule caps the contract period. Gueverra will earn $15,000 per month -$180,000 each year -and receive 35 annual vacation days. He'll get the same benefits as all other college employees. Tyree, before he voluntarily gave up half his salary in summer 2011 to help mitigate a -budget shortfall, earned $216,000 including housing, vehicle and cell-phone allowances. Gueverra gets none of those. The board met at 2 p.m. on the college's Stock Island campus; Upper Keys trustee Bobby Stoky appeared telephonically. Gueverra, 53, is a native of Trinidad and Tobago; on May 3 he resigned as chief executive officer of the Community College of the District of Columbia. He has a master's in business administration from the University of Massachusetts, as well as a bachelor's from Providence College and an associate's degree from Newbury College.Board OKs 3-year deal for presidentBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEYS COMMUNITY COLLEGEFWC: Learn to live with crocsCrocodiles are reclaiming their historical habitat, and the carefree days of letting kids and pets swim in the canals of the Upper Keys are over and they're not coming back, state wildlife officials told Islamorada council members last week. "Times are changing, and this is one of those things we're going to have to change and bend to," Lt. Keith Barcomb, an officer with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, told council members and residents at the May 24 council meeting. The American saltwater crocodile was once an endangered species. But its numbers rebounded heartily since dwindling to the hundreds in the 1970s. Now there are anywhere from 1,500 to more than 2,000 American crocodiles, most living from South Miami-Dade County to Islamorada. There are some reports of crocs being found as far south as Big Pine Key, and one has taken residence in a canal near Sombrero Beach in Marathon. Still, Lindsey Hord, an FWC biologist, said people should be much more worried about their children drowning than being attacked by a crocodile. The reptiles have not been known to be aggressive to people, unlike their relatives around the globe, like the Nile crocodile, or even their cousins here, the much more abundant Florida alligator. "There has never been a fatality from an American crocodile, but six people drowned in Monroe County last year. We have to keep these things in perspective," Hord said. That's little comfort to Islamorada Mayor Michael Reckwerdt, who asked the FWC to come to last week's council meeting. Reckwerdt, 45, grew up in South Florida. He said until recently, there weren't any crocs in Islamorada, and now there are so many that he no longer lets his children swim in the water surrounding his business, Robbie's Marina on Lower Matecumbe Key. "We're talking about a complete change in the way of life for us," Reckwerdt said. Reckwerdt and other council members wanted Hord to explain what could be done to remove larger crocodiles from areas where people frequently swim, fish and recreate. The answer? Nothing. American saltwater crocodiles are considered threatened, so FWC officers will not kill nuisance crocs like they do nuisance alligators in other parts of the state. The FWC will occasionally remove crocs they perceive as a problem, but the animals usually find their way back. Hord said people in the Upper Keys should actually expect to see more of them as the protected species'population keeps growing. There has never been a recorded attack by an American saltwater crocodile on a human, according to the FWC. But what has Village Council members and other residents concerned is a fatal attack on a 65-pound dog in Key Largo by a crocodile in March. Village Council members, including Reckwerdt and Councilman David Purdo, said they don't want to wait until a human gets attacked to do something. "At what point do we stop this," Purdo asked Hord. Hord maintained that the only thing people can do is become more educated about crocodiles and to accept that they are here to stay. People should keep their pets and small children away from the water in areas crocs are known to be. If you live on the water, you might want to build a fence around your property to keep them out, Hord said. Mark Parry, a U.S. Parks Service biologist, agreed, but said the concern is being overblown. Potentially dangerous wildlife abounds in Florida and always has. The key, he said, is to always be aware of your surroundings.Agency:Issue is blown out of proportionBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comUPPER KEYS

the tourism revenues from their respective areas. Capital-projects money can fund construction or repair of facilities that directly boost tourism in the Florida Keys. In most cases, the money is dedicated to maintaining beaches and parks. Key West's TDC capital budget also covers some staff positions for museums and beach maintenance. As of last week, projected TDC capital-projects money available to the five districts (including carryover) for fiscal year 2012-13: District 1 (Key West), $1,762,992. District 2 (Lower Keys), $114,571. District 3 (Marathon), $518,541. District 4 (Islamorada), $422,757. District 5 (Key Largo), $351,807. "This is good news," said Jon Allen, a Key West guesthouse owner who serves as DAC 1 chairman. "It will enable us to continue to promote Key West in a way that is balanced and effective." Awaterfront area of Truman Annex donated by the U.S. Navy to Key West for public use is in the planning stages. "There are a number of things that might be included that could be eligible for [capital projects] funding but we're not at that stage yet," Allen said. The rising TDC revenues "shows the efforts we've made have been producing results," said DAC 3 Chairman Sheldon Suga, a resort manager. After applications for money are received, funding review for individual projects starts at the district advisory committees, with recommendations forwarded to the full TDC and Monroe County Commission for final approval.This is good news'From TDC,1A Wednesday,May 30,2012 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com SAVE 60% 75% OFF EVERYTHING!

The FWC arrested three Middle Keys residents late Monday on grand-theft charges after a personal watercraft reportedly was towed from the Sunshine Key Camping Resort at the south end of the Seven Mile Bridge. "It looks like they hooked up the PWC to their boat, then ran aground when they were trying to get away," Dube said. "Investigators are still working on what happened." Marathon residents Daniel Estenio Reguera, 44, and Bobby Dickson, 30, and John Antaramian, 30, of Grassy Key, are charged with grand theft involving property worth more than $5,000. AHialeah man, Eliezer Lopez Rojas, 41, was charged Sunday with multiple lobsterpoaching counts after being found snorkeling off the bayside of the Channel 5 Bridge near mile marker 72. FWC Lt. Liz Riesz was checking fishing catches along the shore when she saw Rojas diving without a required flag. Before he came ashore, the diver discarded a speargun and catch bag, Riesz reported. After another officer recovered the bag and speargun, the defendant was arrested for possessing eight lobster out of season, five of which were undersized. Rojas Lopez also was charged with spearfishing in a restricted area and interfering with an FWC officer.Fiesta Key stabbingLazaro Ayala, 41, of Homestead was arrested Sunday night after a stabbing at the Fiesta Key RVResort on Long Key. The victim told Monroe County Sheriff's Office deputies that Ayala slashed at him with a knife during a fight. Deputies Jeffrey Deluca and Wilfredo Guerra said the man suffered "cuts on his face, stomach, chest and left arm," but was released after treatment at Mariners Hospital. Cause of the dispute was not known. Ayala was charged with aggravated battery, a felony. In a separate arrest involving a knife attack, Stock Island liveaboard Robert Smith, 35, was charged Saturday with felony false imprisonment and aggravated assault. Smith's girlfriend said the defendant held a knife to her throat, threatened her life and forcibly prevented her from leaving their boat. Awitness told officers she "saw Smith pull [the girlfriend] back inside" the boat when the victim tried to leave. Around 1:45 a.m. Monday, deputies used an electric stun gun to subdue a Winter Park man after he became violent and unruly outside the Brass Monkey Lounge in Marathon, according to a Sheriff's Office report. Jeffrey B. Causey, 50, faces felony charges of assault and battery on a police officer, and misdemeanor count of disorderly intoxication. Causey described as standing 6-foot-2 and weighing around 260 pounds made threats against deputies and emergency-medical technicians who were trying to help a woman who fell and struck her head, a report says.

As it stands with two weeks remaining in the qualifying period, the District 26 race has drawn three Republicans, two Democrats and an independent. Rivera is being challenged for the Republican nomination by Douglas Walker, a Shark Key resident and former owner of the Oceanside Marina, and Pinellas County resident Eric Borgstrom, an insurance salesman and chef. Gloria Romero Roses, a businesswoman from Southwest Ranches in Broward County, has received backing from several state Democratic leaders in her bid for District 26. Justin Sternad, a Cutler Bay hotel executive, also is running as a Democrat. Jose Peixoto of Key Largo is running as an independent. Candidates for District 26 are required to be Florida residents but do not have to live in the district.House race now has sixFrom Rivera,1ATDC pulls New Times'adsTo avoid any association with possible sex trafficking, the Monroe County Tourist Development Council, which promotes the Keys as a travel destination, pulled advertisements effective May 16 from the Miami New Times. Harold Wheeler, executive director of the TDC, says New Times parent company Village Voice Media, through its websites, links to online classified ads for prostitution services. "I nor Tinsely Advertising were aware of this site, or actually even the issue, until I was notified by both [Key West] Mayor Craig Cates and [Monroe County] Mayor David Rice." "I immediately looked into the matter and quickly realized the right thing to do was cancel our ads," Wheeler says, adding prostitution "obviously could lea--d to human sex trafficking and, my guess, not only damage to women but possibly to children, too." Wheeler says the $7,000 ad buy placed by the TDC promoted cultural events in the Florida Keys and had been redirected to the same market via publication in Miami Herald weekend editions. Wheeler noted that there were no print ads for prostitution appearing in New Times ; they're only on the website.

"We cannot in good conscience continue to pay charges for which the school district has no legal obligation to pay," School District General Counsel Sheryl Wood wrote in a May 18 letter sent to the city attorneys for Jupiter, Boynton Beach, West Palm Beach, Riviera Beach and Boca Raton. According to the letter, the district stopped paying the stormwater fees charged by each city on its April 27 water and sewer bills. The fees, which are calculated based on a formula that includes the square footage of property, are meant to pay for the maintenance of the drainage systems in those cities that take runoff and prevent flooding. According to a district analysis, the district would pay a combined total of $550,926 in fees to the cities each year. Wood cites a Jan. 18 Third District Court of Appeal ruling involving the city of Key West and Florida Keys Community College as justification to stop paying the fees. In that case, the state court upheld lower court rulings that state entities, such as colleges and school districts, have sovereign immunity from paying the stormwater fees, so the college did not have to pay the city. Because the Key West case exempts state entities from having to pay, the district will no longer pay the fees, Wood wrote in her letter. West Palm Beach spokesman Elliot Cohen said in the Key West case, the community college wasn't actually receiving any stormwater drainage services from the city. "They [Palm Beach County schools] do use our storm drains," Cohen said. "So I'm not sure it is an apples-to-apples comparison." In the Key West case, the city had to pay back the college $160,529,60. In 2002, the city established an ordinance that outlined stormwater fees but didn't start billing the college until 2005. The first bill included three years of accumulated charges of more than $65,000. Subsequent bills, $3,102 monthly, were paid upon receipt by the college, eventually adding up to the $160,529.60.

EDITORIALA royal gaffe for governorLETTERS TO THE EDITORProvide sanctuary inputThe Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary covers a big area, 2,896 square miles of ocean, coral reefs, nearshore waters and seagrass meadows from Florida Bay to the Dry Tortugas and the Tortugas Ecological Reserve, the deep-water coral reef and spawning grounds of Riley's Hump. But don't let the vast expanse of the sanctuary lull you into complacency. There are about 73,000 residents of the Florida Keys and 3.3 million annual visitors, and we don't spread ourselves out evenly over this vast range; most of us hit only the most popular spots the best reefs, the lobster holes and the productive fishing areas. Without zoning, fishing and management regulations, the intensity of our use will further degrade and even destroy our tropical ecosystem. The sanctuary's condition report of 2011 does not paint a rosy picture of the marine resources of the Florida Keys. The condition trends of the four major resource areas water, habitat, living resources and maritime archaeological resources are all mostly in the fair to poor assessment (this is an excellent comprehensive report on the condition of our sanctuary and is available on the National Marine Sanctuaries website). We have to do a much better job in our stewardship and care of our natural resources. It's time for is a complete review of the regulations and management zones of the sanctuary and your input into this process is needed and wanted. If you live in the Keys full or part time or even visit frequently, there are two reasons why you should go to a sanctuary scoping meeting: This is your sanctuary, your unique environment in a tropical paradise, and you should know the condition of your natural resources, what they need to be protected and preserved, and how they will be managed. If you use the resources of our sanctuary for economic or recreational reasons, you should contribute your knowledge and opinions to the development of the future management, regulations and zoning structure of the sanctuary. There are five meetings coming up where the sanctuary and its advisory council will provide information on sanctuary zones and regulations, and gather public comments for consideration in the upcoming management review. You can attend any meeting at any time to provide comments or ask questions of staff and advisory council members. Your input is important. The meeting schedule (all are from 4:15 to 6:15 p.m.) is: June 19: Marathon Government Center, Emergency Operations Center, mile marker 48.5. June 20: Key Largo library, Trade Winds Plaza, mile marker 101.4. June 21: DoubleTree Grand Key Resort, South Roosevelt Boulevard, Key West. June 26: Florida International University, Graham University Center, Room GC243, Miami. June 27: Joseph P. Alessandro Office Complex, Rooms 165 C and D, Fort Myers.

Katie Bentley Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys MarathonHe tries to impress Spanish king but instead inserts foot in mouth as he tries to drum up businessWhenever you hear someone talking about the elephant in the room, you almost immediately get the mental picture the storyteller intends. Not so when Florida Gov. Rick Scott is the one telling. His recent trade mission to Spain, which concluded right before the Memorial Day weekend, was notable for a different sort of elephant in the room -the one with his foot attached. Scott managed to make news last week -the wrong kind -on his visit with Spain's King Juan Carlos. Seems the king is still hurting from a recent African safari hunt where bagging an elephant brought opprobrium at home. Spain is undergoing a deep financial crisis, unemployment is above 24 percent, businesses are failing and the country's monarch is out hunting elephants on an expensive safari? Avideo of this first meeting with the king captures Scott's greeting: "I still want to hear -I've ridden elephants, but I've still never tried to shoot one." Ouch. It's hard to picture a man putting his foot in his mouth when it's the size of an elephant, but that's not the worst of the gaffe. Turns out the 74-year-old Spanish monarch was injured in pursuit of the big game, leaving him temporarily unable to fulfill official duties. So on top of being embarrassed by all the attention his safari drew in the Spanish media, the king suffers a repeat during the visit from Florida's governor, cameras rolling. Upon his return to Miami, reporters asked Scott about the international gaffe. "Gosh, if I did anything wrong, I completely apologize," Scott said. "The king's a wonderful person. He's a wonderful world leader." Scott went on to describe the Spanish trade mission as promising, suggesting the proof will come with increased business between Florida companies and their Spanish counterparts. "South Florida is the gateway to Latin America," Scott said, "so Spanish companies that want to do business in Latin America, this is where they should set up shop." We'll see. It should be noted one of Spain's biggest companies, Repsol, just got shown the door by Argentina, which nationalized Repsol's big oil subsidiary YPF there earlier in May. To make matters worse, Repsol's big multimillion-dollar oil rig off the Cuban coast came up dry -also earlier this month -in its first deepwater drill for oil. Things are not looking rosy right now for more Spanish investment in this part of the world. And, we suspect, King Juan Carlos may not be too anxious to visit "La Florida" anytime soon -especially given how hard it is to ignore the elephants in the room.Floridians are keenly aware that June 1 marks the start of Atlantic hurricane season. Tropical Storm Alberto, the first named storm of the 2012 hurricane season, serves as a reminder to us all that now is the time to prepare. We join the former director of the Florida Division of Emergency Management, Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Craig Fugate, in urging you to take action to prepare yourself, your family and your friends. During National Hurricane Preparedness Week, May 27 through June 2, we call on all citizens to be a force of nature and take the steps necessary to be prepared for hurricanes, severe storms, flooding or tornados. By taking a few minutes to create an emergency plan, you can help reduce the vulnerabilities of families, individuals and businesses during a disaster. Everyone should be prepared for up to 72 hours with the necessary supplies. Now is the time to prepare a plan for yourself, your family and pets, and your business. If a family member or friend has access or functional needs, be sure to identify a shelter that can accommodate those needs in case of an evacuation. Waiting until a hurricane is bearing down on your home is too late to get a plan. To ensure your plan and disaster supply kit are ready for this year's season, take the time to review, renew and replenish. Check the batteries and replace if needed, update personal papers, refresh the water and nonperishable food supply, and verify that your emergency contact information is up to date. If you do not have a disaster supply kit, we encourage you to take the time this week to create one for your family and business. Once you have prepared yourself, take a few minutes and encourage your family and friends and urge them to take action. There are a few simple steps to ensure your family and friends are also prepared. Know your risk: To be a force of nature, you must understand how hurricanes can affect where you live and work, and how the weather could impact you and your family. Check the weather forecast regularly, sign up for local alerts from emergency management officials and obtain a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration weather radio. Take action: Pledge to develop an emergency plan based on information from your local emergency officials. Review your local hurricane, severestorm and flood-hazard information on what to do in an emergency. Take the time now to build a disaster supply kit, including your emergency plan and needed supplies to be on your own for up to 72 hours after a disaster strikes. Follow evacuation orders and emergency alerts from your local officials. Use the online tools available at www.ready.gov andwww.floridadisaster.org to aid you in developing your plan. Learn how to strengthen your home and business against hurricanes to help mitigate the damage. Alittle planning ahead of a storm can make the difference in recovery after a storm strikes. Download FEMA's mobile app so you can access important safety tips on what to do before, during and after a hurricane. For information on evacuating in Florida, download the state Division of Emergency Management's mobile app, Florida Evacuates, where up-to-date information on shelters and hotel partners'availability will be posted. Review your local emergency management information prior to a disaster. Take a moment to understand the National Hurricane Center warnings and alerts. All of these simple steps will help prepare your family in case of a disaster. Be a force of nature: Building a weather-ready nation requires the action of each and every one of us. Once you have taken action and built your own disaster supply kit, take a few minutes and help your family, friends, school staff and co-workers prepare. Share how your family prepared for hurricane season through social media outlets. Once you sign-up for alerts from your local emergency management officials, pass the information along to your family and friends. Studies show that individuals need to receive messages a number of ways before acting be one of those sources. For more information on how you can prepare your emergency plan and build your own disaster supply kit, visit www.ready.gov/hurricanes and www.floridadisaster.org. Bryan Koon is director of the Florida Division of Emergency Management. He co-wrote this with Federal Emergency Management Agency Region 4 Administrator Major P. May. KOONGUEST COLUMNNow is the time to be hurricane-prepared Legislator: Law doesn't protect womenIncoming state Senate Democratic Leader Chris Smith has ratcheted up criticism of Florida's Stand Your Ground law, pointing to a loophole that could endanger some women rather than protect them. Smith's remarks came in response to a recent case in which a Jacksonville woman was sentenced in a domestic assault case. Smith, from Oakland Park, said the law which allows people to shoot back when threatened without a duty to retreat could actually end up making domestic violence victims more vulnerable. Smith, an attorney, said Stand Your Ground affords domestic violence victims fewer rights than they had before it was passed in 2005 unless they have an injunction for protection. "An invited guest is considered a resident under the law," he wrote in a recent analysis. "This means that as soon as a woman invites her ex-husband to pick up their children at her home, she is powerless to defend herself, even if she holds sole title to the property. Given that most attacks happen at home by relatives or individuals known to the victim, this loophole in the law is unconscionable." While the Trayvon Martin killing that has brought the Stand Your Ground self-defense law into new focus in Florida involved two young men, Martin and shooter George Zimmerman, some of the focus on the need for a lenient self-defense law has begun to focus on the needs of women. Incoming state Senate President Don Gaetz and his son, Rep. Matt Gaetz, both Republicans, made that claim in a recent editorial headlined: "Calls to repeal Stand Your Ground are anti-woman." "Consider an elderly woman in a dimly lit parking lot or a college girl walking to her dorm at night," they wrote in the May 2 Northwest Florida Daily News in Fort Walton Beach. "If either was attacked, her duty was to turn her back and try to flee, probably be overcome and raped or killed. Prior to Stand Your Ground, that victim didn't have the choice to defend herself, to meet force with force." Both Gaetz senior (RNiceville) and Rep. Dennis Baxley (R-Ocala) dismissed concerns by Smith that for other women, the law makes things worse. "Sen. Smith's been working too hard," said Baxley. "He needs to let the Citizen Safety and Protection Task Force, which has a lot of smart people on it, complete their work before he starts proposing changes to statute." Gov. Rick Scott appointed the Citizen Safety and Protection Task Force to review Stand Your Ground following Martin's death Feb. 26 in Sanford in a case that has drawn international attention. Zimmerman, a neighborhood-watch volunteer, entered a not-guilty plea after remaining free for five weeks until the case had become a national controversy. Now, after an organizational meeting earlier this month, the Scott task force is slated to hold its first public hearing in Sanford on June 12. Baxley is a member of the panel, which has been criticized for including him and two other lawmakers who voted for Stand Your Ground" plus a fourth, Jason Brodeur, who was elected in 2010 and sponsored last year's law banning doctors from asking patients about guns in their homes. The panel's chairwoman, Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll, also voted for Stand Your Ground while a House member. There are no known gun-control advocates on the panel. Smith did not wait for Scott to name his panelists before creating a separate, South Florida-based task force that recommended changes to Stand Your Ground last month. These included grand-jury involvement, public education and a self-defense claims tracking system. Smith also said a domestic violence exemption should be part of the overhaul. He said he was "very surprised" to discover the domestic violence provision after 31-year-old Marissa Alexander of Jacksonville was sentenced in an assault case for firing a shot at her husband during a dispute in their home when she said she was under attack. Using a Stand Your Ground defense, Alexander rejected a plea bargain and lost her case. On May 11, she received a 20-year sentence under a mandatory minimum law for gun crimes.Domestic cases are different, he contendsBy MARGIE MENZELNews Service of FloridaSTAND YOUR GROUND LAW

In addition, local tourism businesses and individuals contributed time, energy and services, and shared their insights with the group. The sojourn began in Key West May 20 with the group based from the Westin Key West Resort & Marina and the Pier House Resort & Caribbean Spa. While in the Lower Keys, participants experienced a wide variety of offerings including touring historic and environmental attractions, gallery visits, food tours, a sunset cruise, a Big Pine Key kayak tour, a welcome dinner on Sunset Key and a dinner hosted by the Key West Attractions Association at the Little White House. On May 23, the entourage moved up the Keys with stops at Bahia Honda State Park, the Turtle Hospital and Robbie's Marina to feed tarpon before settling in at the Postcard Inn at Holiday Isle in Islamorada. Inclement weather Thursday morning forced cancellation of planned fishing and diving activities, but those attending still researched other stories, including "voluntourism" programs with Ken Nedimyer and the Coral Restoration Foundation, Theater of the Sea marine-mammal interaction programs and the History of Diving Museum. The final evening was spent sampling cuisine at five restaurants in Islamorada's Morada Way Arts & Cultural District, followed by participation in the Third Thursday Art Walkabout, which was specially scheduled for the fourth Thursday to accommodate the group. "We are all coming back with notebooks full of story ideas," said Annette Thompson, chairwoman of the Central States chapter. "Before you come here, you think of it [the Keys] in a one-dimensional sort of way, and now we see this as very multi-faceted, with stories everywhere we look that we want to share with other people."Dozens visit to take home vacation storiesTOURISM Photos by ANDY NEWMAN/FLORIDA KEYS NEWS BUREAUMembers of the Society of American Travel Writers' Central States chapter (above) raise sails on the 'Western Union' off Key West on May 21.In Islamorada,organization member Tom Griffith (below) feeds a tarpon at Robbie's. Business In death, leave your financial detailsWhen someone we love passes away, the grief can be overwhelming. And it can be compounded by paperwork. Piles of it. Sorting it all out amid the grieving process can be doubly daunting. Is there a trust or even a will? Where did mom want to be buried or cremated? What happened to dad's military pension? Who's their attorney? Where are their bank accounts? It doesn't need to be that way. To avoid the financial and emotional chaos, a number of families and money-management professionals rely on a one-stop system: Adocument, a binder even a single desk drawer that contains all the financial paperwork we inevitably leave behind. "It makes it so much easier [at a time] when people are under emotional stress that's off the charts," said John Winters, a Sacramento investment adviser. Having one designated place containing a list of all the essential documents and contact information "is the best tool a financial planner can deliver for families. I have one for my family." The documentation should cover your financial life, everything from an inventory of your stocks, bonds and IRAs to insurance policies and military pensions even your airline frequent flier miles. You can also include specific details such as what you want written in your obituary, who should take your pets and where you've hidden the key to the safe-deposit box. Rashida Lilani, a Roseville, Calif., certified financial planner, created her own checklist for clients that documents everything from investments to passports. By filling it out now, parents can prevent the loss of valuable information due to dementia or forgetfulness. "What if dad bought a $500,000 life insurance policy but never told mom about it?" she noted. The process of sorting and documenting your financial life can ward off potential problems and yield unexpected benefits. For instance, without a list of magazine or satellite radio subscriptions, those contracts could continue dinging bank or credit card accounts for months after you're gone. It also can be a good time to double-check details, such as whether the correct beneficiaries are on your life insurance or pension accounts. The process also can be a reminder to jot down where cash and valuables are stored. Financial advisers love to recount clients'stories of where they've found cash left behind by parents or relatives: The woman whose uncle had stashed money in his prosthetic leg. The relative who kept cash in a sealed pipe against his house. The elderly woman who lined up paper bills under her living room rug. Or a parent who left wads of bills stuffed into the attic insulation. While filling out the paperwork can feel tedious, it doesn't have to be exhaustive. You can take shortcuts, like putting all your credit cards front and back on a copier. Or compiling the inventory on your computer and storing it on a memory stick. On his personal finance website, Dave Ramsey suggests organizing it "in a way that anyone can find a specific document in 30 seconds. All files should be clearly marked, in order and easy for a grieving family member to find." To ensure that your financial documents or file folders don't wind up in the wrong hands, it's best to keep them in a safe or a locked, fireproof filing cabinet.

Marathon-based School Board member John Dick says the so-called Habitech program at Marathon Middle/High School is "over for now. The class just didn't materialize." As a result, the district paid back Habitat $12,000 in supplies and materials that were spent on the house, which stands largely as a wood-frame structure; Dick says the school Maintenance Department will get the materials. "We need two by fours, that's where we'll get them. It's not a big loss or a problem but it's sad." Christine Todd-Young, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of the Middle Keys, says, "It was a mutual decision. They didn't have the kids anymore in the program. That was really the only thing holding it back." "Both Habitat and the school are sad we couldn't make it work. We tried so many times, but without the students it was a moot project." Dick says the most recent class attracted just five students. In 2009, Switlik teacher Sarah Adams got the first and what turned out to be only Habitech house. The 1,200square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bath home on Bonita Drive is the result of collaborative work performed by more than 50 Marathon students. The construction students worked with Habitat, teachers, mentors and contractors to build the house in sections, right on school grounds. The sections were then trucked to the home site designated by Habitat and put together. Habitat is a nonprofit that works with income-eligible people to buy homes with 20year no-interest loans. The recipients, in turn, are expected to work with Habitat on future projects.The goal was student-built Habitat homesBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com Keynoter,'Reporter'honoredThe Florida Keys Keynoter and Upper Keys Reporter have won several awards in the Florida Press Association's 2011 Better Weekly Newspaper Contest, the FPAhas announced.

Rick Scott's veto that cut $2 million from a statewide legalaid agency will be felt in the Florida Keys, Legal Services of Greater Miami officials said. "Losing any more services would really hurt our ability to serve a community as spread out and diverse as Monroe County," said Lizel Gonzalez, director of operations for the agency covering Miami-Dade and Monroe counties. The agency's staff attorneys and volunteer lawyers provide counseling to lowincome residents on civil matters, mostly divorce and child custody issues but also including domestic-violence injunctions, labor and pay disputes, consumer fraud and more. "These are basic, fundamental things where the people of Florida may need legal help," Florida Legal Services Executive Director Kent Spuhler said. Florida Legal Services works with regional four regional organizations, including Legal Services of Greater Miami. "The explosion of foreclosures means a lot of people could face that situation with no help," Spuhler said. "Foreclosures also have spawned a whole industry of scam mortgage-rescue artists who prey on the desperate." In vetoing projects costing a total of $142 million from Florida's $70 billion budget, Scott struck out $2 million for legal-services agencies statewide Scott spokeswoman Jackie Schutz said the appropriation did not have a clear justification, and that the legal-aid agencies have alternative funding sources, according to a News Service of Florida report. Those alternative sources, including the Florida Bar Foundation, also have sharply curtailed support in recent years, Spuhler said. "There's been a significant decline in funding and Gov. Scott's decision is the latest blow," Spuhler said. "We're projecting an overall decline in staff of probably 25 percent." Said Gonzalez, "We've already reached out to everywhere we can think of. We've been efficient with our resources but this could make it harder to service our community." Legal Services of Greater Miami previously maintained an office in Key West but that closed after previous budget cuts. The Keys now are covered from a Homestead office. "Right now I don't foresee changing anything in Monroe County but that could change," Gonzalez said. "Things are tough."Official:Keys will feel the impactKeynoter StaffTHE LAW NEWS BRIEFS Jara a finalist for Springfield jobJesus Jara, the Monroe County School District superintendent, is one of two finalists vying for the same job with the Springfield (Mass.) Public Schools. Jara previously worked in that district, serving as a principal and vice principal up until 2005; at that point he came to Florida to take a private-sector job with The College Board. Jara is on a short list of nine candidates vying for the Monroe County post; this is the first time the choice will be the result of a formal School Board search process rather than an election or gubernatorial appointment. According to materials on the Springfield Public Schools website: "School committee members will begin scheduling site visits for the finalists. Once those occur, dates for public interviews will be set." Locally, a superintendent search committee meeting Wednesday morning at Marathon Middle/High School will agree to a list of five finalists for recommendation to the School Board. The Keys position has an Aug. 1 start date; in Springfield, the committee is looking to make a hire by June 30.

Some disagree,but there's no doubt either way,your skin needs protection.Story, 3B Mmmm,pie Try this to help you cool down as the temps rise: Strawberry-rhubarb pie with ice cream and lemonade.Recipe, 2B B Sports & OutdoorsFishing CommunityLifestyle South Dade outmans the ConchsThough it was late May, football filled the air Friday evening at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium, as did billowing clouds, backlit in orange in the 7:30 sun and looming like clawing monsters above a scoreboard that quickly displayed a 7-0 lead for South Dade. It was the annual spring game for Key West High School, a game culminating a month of practice as eyes begin to focus on the 2012 season under new coach Johnny Hughes. Around 250 fans were on hand, including Joey Gandolfo, a Conch star of the mid-'80s who watched with his buddies along a rail near one end zone. The Conchs, though padded beneath their red jerseys, looked undersized and outmanned they had about 30 players (more than a dozen projected starters were out because of injury, poor grades or suspension) and South Dade, off the bus from Homestead, had more than 50 in white and blue uniforms. South Dade also had a talent advantage on offense and defense. A35-yard touchdown pass on the last play of the first quarter gave the Buccaneers a 21-0 lead. Along the sideline, Hughes, in a red ball cap, coached calmly, calling out plays, such as "Purple 89." His assistants some familiar from previous coaching regimes were plentiful, dressed in cargo shorts and white T-shirts, some of which were tucked in. The most enthusiastic among them was the fitlooking J.P. Garcia, who wore a visor on his shaved ahead and kept shouting, "You keep fighting, defense!" And the Conchs kept fighting against a team that had too much speed and experience. Dorian Cannon, a freshman with an athletic physique, wore No. 1, ran hard on offense and made some crunching tackles. Deonte Stemage, running from the team's new triple-option setup, ripped off a 22-yard gain. Donald Roberts intercepted a pass, as did Norman Lopez late in the first half as the Bucs threatened again. It was 210 at halftime, and the players yielded the field to the new Conch cheerleaders. South Dade extended the lead to 27-0 in the third quarter, and that turned out to be the final score. The Conchs left the stadium, not to return until Aug. 24 when they will play Cardinal Gibbons in the annual preseason game. This week, Hughes said he had been looking for four yards a carry, but the Conchs didn't come close to that. "We kept cutting back into the defense," he said. "We have a bunch of solid players but they have to block when they don't have the ball." "But I saw some good things," he added, looking forward to August, when the team would practice for the new season.Team unveils triple option in spring gameBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST FOOTBALL Photo by BERT BUDDEKey West's Jeffrey Anilus gains yardage against South Dade during Friday night's spring game.Young Keys players bring home titlesYouth tennis players went home with trophies when the Florida Keys Junior Championship, played at Wonderlin Tennis at Boatman's Sombrero Resort in Marathon, wrapped the weekend of May 19. Kids ages 7 to 16 competed in six different divisions. Players from Key West to Coral Gables participated.

"It is the only USTA-sanctioned event in the Keys, so they can get some ranking points without traveling far, and they gain important match experience while being able to make friends with other Keys and South Floridian players.Coral Gables included in championshipTENNISTake a swim around Key WestLong-distance swimming enthusiasts are to compete in a 12.5-mile open-water swim June 16 on a route that circumnavigates the island of Key West Solo swimmers and relay teams of two to six people, with or without fins, are to compete in the annual Florida Keys Community College Swim Around Key West. The race is set to begin at 7 a.m. at the boat ramp at Smathers Beach, on the Atlantic Ocean where South Roosevelt Boulevard meets Bertha Street. The clockwise route ends where it begins. The challenge typically attracts athletes from the U.S., Canada and abroad to compete for awards in multiple age categories ranging from 12 and under to 65 and older. According to event organizer Lori Bosco of Florida Keys Community College, swimmers must provide their own support crews and boats, but can't touch the boats except for teams making relay changes. Lifeguards and kayaks will be positioned throughout the course for safety. Swimmers must be registered by June 15. The entry fee is $100 per solo swimmer, $160 per twoperson relay team, $240 per three-person team, $320 per four-person team, $400 per five-person team and $480 per six-person team. Discounts are available for United States Masters Swimming and USA Swimming members. For more information or to register, go to http://fkccswimaround keywest.com The Swim Around Key West benefits the Florida Keys Community College swim program, Key West High School swim team and the Keys'Bone Island Swim Club. 12.5-mile race is grueling but fulfillingSWIMMING Yellowtails are the best betThe most economical bite in town right now is yellowtail snapper. They have a major presence in 30 to 100 feet of water and are biting just about everything. The deeper you fish, the bigger the yellowtail. If the large fish aren't cooperating, work up shallower and you'll find some keepers. With lots of chum, you can't go wrong. For those with deeper pockets, there are plenty of dolphin around, but you have to look for them. The dolphin bite hasn't been stellar, but there's enough to keep you interested. And there are still a few nice wahoo showing offshore. While I was getting fuel at Burdine's last week, a family pulled up to the dock inquiring about a scale. They weighed what turned out to be a 35-pound wahoo. Beautiful fish for this time of year. Granted, it was the only thing they caught that day. There are also good numbers of grouper on the patches and on the main reef. And dropping on the wrecks for mutton snapper is still productive. We had a Palolo worm hatch last week, and I hope you got in on the ensuing tarpon action. What a sight. If you haven't caught your silver king yet for 2012, there are still lots of them at the bridges and in Key West Harbor. The bridge monsters are claiming their share, but that doesn't detract from the thrill of the fight, even if you don't get your fish to the side of the boat for a photo op.The week's bestGuests at Captain Pip's Marina and Hideaway in Marathon, Deb Monroe and Dave Peterson from Helena, Mont., fished on their rental boat and brought in some nice dolphin and a bonus wahoo. More Pip's guests, Dave and Melanie Harmon, fished aboard the Papa Pip's with Capt. Howard Kelley and mate Neil Apley and brought a nice bunch of dolphin back to the dock. The SeaSquared spent the week tarpon fishing at Bahia Honda; reef and wreck fishing for mutton, yellowtail, black grouper and cobia; and tossed in a couple of shark fishing trips to Florida Bay. Skeeter and Bu, from Philadelphia did some fishing in Marathon with Capt. Dallas Tisdale. They fished on the channel rock piles and inside patches and caught grouper, hogfish, lane, yellowtail and mutton snapper. They also caught a barracuda that was helping itself to a snapper dinner. Capt. Moe Mottice, of Moe's Custom Charters in Key West, says there's a new crop of tarpon in Key West Harbor and they're enjoying live pinfish. Mixed in are mangroves and mackerel. Big barracuda are biting trolled ballyhoo on the flats, while yellowtail snapper are eating cut squid and shrimp trash on the reef. Offshore from 450 to 700 feet, there are plenty of schoolie dolphin on the weed patches. Mottice reminds us to keep our eyes peeled for frigate birds as the big teenager and 20-plus-pound dolphin are underneath them.Casting contestCapt. Spider's Casting for Charity takes place Thursday at Salty's Waterfront Grill, located at the 7 Mile Marina, mile marker 47.5 bayside in Marathon. The fun contest runs from 6 to 8 p.m. and will benefit the Marathon High School Maritime Scholarship. Capt.

But recent scientific studies and a new g overnmentsponsored documentary that aired last week on HBO have identified a new, less obvious enemy: Fruit juice. This mi g ht surprise the many parents and school districts that in recent years have proudly ditched soda in favor of 100 percent juice. But health experts increasin g ly a g ree that it is not a better alternative. "Juice is just like soda, and I'm sayin g it ri g ht here on camera," pediatric obesity specialist Robert Lusti g said in the documentary "Wei g ht of the Nation," produced in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "There is no difference. When you take fruit and squeeze it, you throw the fiber in the g arba g e. That was the g ood part of the fruit. The juice is nature's way of g ettin g you to eat your fiber." Since 2001, the American Academy of Pediatrics has advised limitin g daily juice consumption to 4 to 6 ounces for children 6 and youn g er and 8 to 12 ounces (the size of a soda can) for children 7 to 18. The academy's head of environmental health, Jerome Paulson, took it even further when he told the Tribune in December that children do not need to drink any juice at all. "Don't drink an apple," he said. "Eat an apple." An important difference between fruit juice and fruit, researchers point out, is that calories and su g ar delivered in liquid form don't tri gg er feelin g s of fullness and can lead to excess consumption. Bevera g e-makers dispute claims that fruit juice and obesity are linked. The Juice Products Association said it supports the pediatrics g roup's recommendations on juice but added that "current scientific evidence does not support a relationship between bein g overwei g ht and juice consumption." "Scientific evidence stron g ly maintains the nutritional benefits of 100 percent juice," the association said. "In fact, studies show that drinkin g 100 percent fruit juice is associated with a more nutritious diet overall, includin g reduced intake of dietary fat, saturated fat and added su g ars." As proof, the association cited a cross-sectional study a snapshot in time funded by the juice industry that found a correlation between consumption of 100 percent fruit juice and hi g her nutrient intake in children.In response, University of North Carolina g lobal nutrition professor Barry Popkin cited six other studies that show correlations between increased fruit juice consumption and increased risk of obesity and diabetes.Sugar-sweetened'"There are no studies that show the opposite that drinkin g a g lass or two of fruit juice each day will have positive lon g -term health benefits on wei g ht or diabetes," added Popkin, author of "The World Is Fat: The Fads, Trends, Policies, and Products That Are Fattenin g the Human Race." In recent months, socalled "su g ar-sweetened bevera g es" (often sweetened not with su g ar but with hi g hfructose corn syrup) have come under increasin g attack for their contribution to the obesity epidemic. Whether this label should be applied to fruit juice is subject to debate, with some or g anizations countin g only those juices with su g ar added. But even 100 percent juice bevera g es can contain as much su g ar as soda. In addition, most commercial fruit juice is derived from concentrates, which often results in a hi g her su g ar content than if the product were, say, simply squeezed from oran g es. Current USDA g uidelines su gg est eatin g about two cups of fruit a day, with the majority consistin g of whole fruit rather than juice. That would cap consumption for even the most active adults and children to 1 cup or 8 ounces of juice a day. In schools, g uidelines allow juice to be substituted for fruit in no more than half of the planned meals "because it lacks dietary fiber and when consumed in excess can contribute extra calories," accordin g to the USDA.But companies say products are just fineMcClatchy-TribuneTO YOUR HEALTH LIVING BRIEFSGuest bartending benefits shelterYou can show your support for the Monroe County Domestic Abuse Shelter while havin g a g ood time on June 13.

Prior to that,the Key West Chief Petty Officers Association replaced the graveside American flags on all tombstones of military veterans. How much sun is too much?Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial start of summer, is this weekend and the sun's rays could be at their strongest yet of the year. Some people will head for the nearest pool, where they'll roast themselves golden brown. They'll also get a dose of Vitamin D that will sustain them for the summer. Others will slather on sunscreen, wear wide-brim hats and take vitamin supplements. Our relationship with the sun ranges from phobic to "tanorexic," a term coined for people who seem addicted to the sun. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends leaning toward the phobic. The academy maintains there is no safe amount of sun when it comes to skin cancer risk. Not for adults, and especially not for children. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. The Skin Cancer Foundation estimates that one in five people will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime; more than 2 million people are diagnosed each year. Between 40 percent and 50 percent of Americans who live to age 65 will have it at least once. Health experts believe children's skin is particularly vulnerable. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a few serious sunburns during childhood can increase the risk of skin cancer later. "We do think kids are more vulnerable, and animal models of melanoma agree with that," said Dr. Lynn Cornelius, chief of dermatology at Washington University. While most health experts agree that prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays is bad, some think we've gone overboard with protecting ourselves from the sun. Before vitamin supplements and fortified foods, the sun was the only source of Vitamin D. The vitamin promotes calcium absorption, which is essential for bone growth. One of the most outspoken critics of the no-sun approach is Dr. Michael Holick, an endocrinologist and professor of biophysics and physiology at Boston University. In his 2009 book, "The Vitamin D Solution," Holick argues that sun phobia is causing an epidemic of Vitamin D deficiency. He recommends about 15 to 30 minutes of sun exposure on the arms and legs two to three times a week. His ideas are so controversial that he was fired from Boston University's department of dermatology in 2004. Some health experts, including Holick, believe that Vitamin D deficiencies are contributing to a host of health problems beyond osteoporosis, including cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disorders and even cancer. Dr. George Griffing, an endocrinologist and professor of internal medicine at St. Louis University Medical School, won't go that far, but he does agree that the sun is a good source of Vitamin D. In the summer, Griffing suggests spending 10 to 20 minutes a day outdoors wearing short sleeves, a hat and no sunscreen. Dark skinned people have to be in the sun about twice as long to get the same benefit, he said. But he estimated that only about 20 percent of people are Vitamin D deficient. Some estimates have put that rate as high as 80 percent. Regardless, most people don't need expensive testing to determine their Vitamin D levels, Griffing said. They can get enough of the vitamin by taking supplements and consuming fortified foods and milk. Oily species of fish, such as tuna and salmon also contain Vitamin D. But for people who have had bariatric surgery and are having a difficult time absorbing Vitamin D from fortified foods and supplements, the sun is a simple and effective option, Griffing said. Cornelius prefers supplements. "We don't like to advocate UVexposure as a way to get Vitamin D," she said. "Why would you expose yourself to the sun and its carcinogens when you don't have to?"Some experts disagree on the dangersMcClatchy-TribuneTO YOUR HEALTH
