Opens Friday, June 8, Tropic Cinema. The Deep Blue SeaŽ is based on the award winning Terence Rattigan stage play from the years right after W orld W ar II and features Rachel W eisz (The WhistleblowerŽ) as Hester Collyer, Tom Hiddleston (The AvengersŽ) as Freddie Page and Simon Russell Beale (My W eek with MarilynŽ) as Sir William Collyer. Directed by Terence Davies, whose specialty seems to be tragic and unhappy stories, the film is beautifully photographed by German cinematographer Florian Hoffmeister, with dark, smoky interiors and hazy brown exteriors that convincingly evoke that depressing yet hopeful period of reconstruction in Britain. Unfortunately, despite an emotional and gripping performance from Weisz, Davies subjects the viewer to 98 minutes of ongoing depression without any sign of hope. The story begins, appropriately enough, with Hesters attempted suicide and, as the story unfolds, the viewer m ay wonder why she is trying to kill herself. Hester is married to a well-respected lawyer and high court judge and has all the comforts that lofty position offers.

The big surprise was that Property Appraiser Karl Borglum, considered by most people a lock to get a full four-year term, pulled his name from consideration just hours before the deadline. Almost simultaneously, one of his colleagues, fellow Republican Scott Russell, filed to run and was automatically elected with no opposition. Borglum cited family reasons for not staying in the race, saying "we didn't know if we could commit to four years." "It was a recent development," said Russell, who oversees residential and commercial appraisals in Key West. "We discussed my long-term plans, Karl's shortterm plans." Borglum said that when Russell takes office in January 2013, "At that point, I'll be severed. I don't think it would be appropriate to stay around. I don't think it would be fair to Mr. Russell." Last June, Gov. Rick Scott appointed Borglum to replace Ervin Higgs, who retired after more than three decades in office. Borglum, Higgs'chief assistant, has worked in the office since 2001 save for a year he spent in California. Russell, 43, was born and raised in Key West. He studied at Florida State University and became a private appraiser in 1991. He started at the Property Appraiser's Office in 2007. He's married with three daughters, ages 7, 11 and 16. "I was born here, have roots here, I plan to be here a long, long time," he said. Coming as a surprise to virtually no one on Friday is that Joan Lord-Papy, a 20year veteran of the Mosquito Control Board, decided not to seek a sixth term. Three candidates qualified to run to replace her. Likely the most-watched local races this election cycle will be those for School Board. The District 3 race (incumbent Duncan Mathewson isn't seeking reelection) has six candidates while in District 2, Andy Griffiths has drawn two challengers. School Board races are nonpartisan.

"Experience handling crocodilians preferred," says the notice from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission but the agency will train. An increase in sightings of the threatened American crocodile in the Keys and the killing of a dog by a crocodile in a Key Largo canal prompted the state to seek a handful of authorized "crocodile-response agents" locally. "Since few people have extensive experience with alligators or crocodiles, that's not a prerequisite," said Lindsey Hord, the FWC biologist in charge of dealing with South Florida's nuisance alligators and crocodiles. "We can train them. If somebody with a lot of experience comes in, that would be a plus." Capturing the usually shy crocodiles, protected by state and federal law, is a last resort. Much of the job entails checking complaints and seeking alternatives to physically moving a native and relatively rare species. There's also the occasional carcass recovery. Response agents are listed as part-time state employees with the job paying $25 per hour on an as-needed basis. Having access to a boat and truck would be helpful, but the hourly rate covers all expenses, Hord said. "This is not meant to be something to do as a living," he said. "It's more for somebody who understands the big picture and wants to help out." One state-authorized response agent lives in the Lower Keys, and Hord would like to add two or three more for Middle and Upper Keys incidents. "These people will represent our agency so it's very important for them to have the right kind of attitude for dealing with the public," Hord said. Aclean criminal record is required. Acrocodile killed a family dog named Roxie in March on the bayside of the Adams Waterway in Key Largo. Hord was in the Keys this week trying to capture the 10-foot croc but it slipped away. "There may be a little spike of concern about crocodiles right now, and we want to be responsive to that," he said. "However, an awful lot of people appreciate crocodiles or are not bothered by them." On a call, a response agent will be charged with assessing the situation to see if steps short of capture can alleviate problems. "It may be as simple as putting up a little fence across the yard or boat ramp," Hord said.

While the school now goes quiet for three months, details of allegations of sexual harassment and creating a hostile work environment levied in May against Principal Hammond Gracy by guidance counselor Kristin Butcher could linger for some time. Following interviews with 27 school employees, district Superintendent Jesus Jara put Gracy on three days of unpaid suspension, to be served next week. Personnel files indicate Gracy and Butcher's problem started on what she describes as a quiet day in with her boyfriend, Johnny Briggs, on June 11, 2011. She said it deteriorated when Gracy got drunk and his libido kicked into high gear. In his 22-page statement (not including seven photos he gleaned from Butcher's Facebook page), Gracy doesn't specifically address Butcher's numerous and specific allegations of what happened that day. "I do not intend to dignify Ms. Butcher's allegations about my trip to Key West in the summer of 2011 by discussing the details of her allegations, most of which are not true."Counselor says principal acted inappropriatelyBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSSee Gracy,2A See Crocodiles,2ABy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com Keys Energy Services tree trimmer David Cottar Jr.cuts poinciana flowers from a tree in Bayview Park to line the field of Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium for Key West High School's Friday night graduation.Keys Energy provided the help to continue the tradition of having graduates enter the field via a poinciana-lined path.BLOOMS FOR GRADUATES

Aclean sweep on commissionFor the first time in recent memory if ever three candidates were elected unopposed Friday to the Monroe County Commission. Incumbents Sylvia Murphy and Heather Carruthers, as well as longtime Clerk of the Court Danny Kolhage, were automatically elected when the qualifying period for county elections ended at noon. Kolhage, a Democrat, was appointed to replace Ralph White as clerk in 1983 by then-Gov. Bob Graham and never lost a race since. He's retiring from that post when his term ends in January and filed to run for the District 1 commission seat when incumbent Kim Wigington decided against seeking a second four-year term. Kolhage said he would have preferred to face a challenger so issues could be aired. "This will be the first time in my memory that we're not going to have county issues debated during the campaign season. That's not necessarily a good thing," he said. But Kolhage did note not having to campaign allows him to concentrate on finishing out his seventh four-year term as clerk. "I'm thankful because we have a number of important projects going on in the clerk's office and this will let me get them done before I leave office," he said. Carruthers, a Democrat, is finishing her first term on the commission, while the Republican Murphy completed an interim two-year term in District 5 in 2008 before easily gaining a full four years by defeating Sal Gutierrez in the general election. "I want to make sure people understand that I won't be complacent about this. I'm honored and humbled that folks at least seem to think I've done a good enough job," Carruthers said. "We started a lot of good things and the commission has been working well together." She added that it will be nice not to have to hold fundraisers. "I'm jazzed about doing it without having to raise so much money to run a campaign," she said. Murphy said the three being elected with no opposition is "very definitely" a vote of confidence for the makeup of the commission. "If people weren't happy, they would have stuck someone in to run against us," she said. Carruthers and Murphy said they look forward to working with Kolhage in a different capacity. Commonly referred to as Mr. Kolhage by his colleagues, he's widely considered one of the most respected government officials in the Florida Keys. "He has a lot of integrity and a lot of institutional knowledge and I'm looking forward to working with him," Carruthers said. "I can't see him being any different as a commissioner. I think we're going to be very pleased with him," Murphy said. Kolhage, Murphy and Carruthers will be sworn in on Nov. 13. That means Kolhage will likely have to leave his clerk job a little before his term expires in January 2013.Three qualify, automatically elected to boardBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comELECTION 2012Butcher told district officials she and Briggs were set to leave Key West around 5 p.m. after hanging out at Dante's on Caroline Street when Gracy called and asked to meet up for a drink. They did, at Captain Tony's on Greene Street. "He first confessed'to us that when he drinks, he smokes and that we could never tell anyone," Butcher told district officials. "Then he said he had a second confession, that was that he likes cold women and hot beer. He repeated that often." Butcher also says Gracy reflected on when he was hired to the $105,000 annual post in June 2010: After a night of partying in Key West, "He said that the next morning, when he was going into the interview, he was sweating from the alcohol and was shaky. "He said that he didn't expect to get the job and had grabbed a folder to carry in with him just to have something in his hands. He said that he barely remembered what they asked him but that he must've said something right, and was surprised that they hired him." The next stop was the now-closed Bobalu's on Southard Street, where Butcher says Gracy insisted on dancing with her numerous times, but most memorably when the band struck up a rendition of Smoky Robinson's "My Girl." "This was the longest three minutes of my life," Butcher recalls. During dinner, "Gracy kept rubbing my leg with his," all in front of Briggs. Butcher says they then went to the Bull and Whistle on Duval Street. "He insisted we go to the rooftop where it's clothing optional [called the Garden of Eden]. He looked like he was in the Promised Land. He asked me to take my top off more than once. Gracy's facial expression was creepy and disturbing. We ditched him." "I remember saying to Johnny, What do I do now? How do I face him on Monday?'" In his May 22 statement, Gracy describes himself as a family man: "I have been married to the same woman for 30 years. We have three lovely daughters. I moved to this school district because it afforded me the opportunity to spend more time with my family in what I thought would be a more wholesome environment." He then contrasts that with Butcher, whom he says "has been married and divorced five times. I find it ironic that a woman who cannot maintain personal relationships has seen fit to diagnose me with a personality disorder." Of the day in Key West on June 11, 2011, Gracy says, "I was planning on celebrating the [school] year end in Key West." Butcher told him she would be there "and invited me to give her a call when I was down there." He saw Butcher and Briggs drive by "so I gave her a call. She chose to say yes. Against this backdrop, Ms. Butcher alleges, I engaged in boorish behavior while off duty and in another town located one and a half hours from Marathon High School. I admit that I was in Key West, off duty on June 11, 2011, and that I was drinking. I otherwise deny Ms. Butcher's charges as she slants them." From the report prepared by district administrators Michael Kinneer and Theresa Axford: "Mr. Gracy's actions did not rise to the level required to constitute a hostile work environment or sexual harassment. However, we do believe that he needs to address management decisions." Specifically, the report says Gracy needs to work on "distributive leadership ... appropriate collaboration skills ... recognize and reward thoughtful dissent ... [and] sustaining the highest degree of ethical conduct."Gracy refutes some chargesFrom Gracy,1A Cool & Comfortable872-4491Winn Dixie Shopping Center on Big Pine Key.Open 7 Dayslight Cotton Knits Soft Gauzy Linens One of a Kind Jewelry Gifts & Cards School's wild with rumors'Michael Kinneer, the Monroe County School District's chief operating officer, and Theresa Axford, executive director of operations, interviewed 27 Marathon High School employees following a May complaint against Principal Hammond Gracy that he sexually harassed guidance counselor Kristin Butcher and created a hostile work environment. The 27 were all asked the same 12 questions. Three of them were: Have unwelcome comments been so severe that they have impeded your or another's ability to work? Has Mr. Gracy ever made comments, gestures or jokes that were of a sexual nature and offensive to you or to another in your presence? Has Mr. Gracy engaged in unwanted flirting with you or someone in your presence? Lori Denny, the school's nurse, told investigators that when she was a prom chaperone, Gracy told her, "You have a nice body; you don't have to lose weight." Denny says Gracy was "always in Kristin Butcher's office.... No boundaries." And Assistant Principal Liz Logan says staff would say, "Is he in there again? Can't get him out of there. Nature of the banter was sexual innuendo." To this question, "Are you aware of any persons or have you heard of any who may have been treated in the ways the questions we asked have referred to?," language arts teacher Jamie Buhyoff said, The "school's running wild with the rumors."Keynoter Staffwidespread practice of anglers tossing filleted fish into Florida Bay, Hord said. "You see a lot of fishcleaning stations along the canals there and almost never see a garbage can next to them," Hord said. "The fish wind up in the water, and that brings crocodiles because there's plenty to eat," he said. "They become habituated." While cable-television channels have at least two regular series that profile alligator hunters or removal teams, a state-hired croc responder cannot pitch a Keys-based series.

All three candidates who declared and qualified for the open seat by Friday's deadline live in the Florida Keys. Key Largo resident Holly Merrill Raschein, legislative aide to state Rep. Ron Saunders and, before him, Rep. Ken Sorensen, and former Key West Mayor Morgan McPherson meet in the Republican primary Aug. 14. Both qualified by submitting more than 518 petition signatures to the Florida Division of Elections. The winner faces Democrat Ian Whitney, president of the Key West Innkeepers Association, in November's general election. Six signatures shy of qualifying by petition, Whitney paid a $1,781 ballot fee. Henry Rosenthal, a stage entertainer and former Islamorada restaurant owner, withdrew from the Democratic race. On Thursday, Rosenthal declined to comment on his reasons. Saunders, the six-year incumbent in District 120, is seeking the District 39 seat in the Florida Senate, a fouryear term. The new District 39 covers 470,135 residents in four counties: Monroe, Miami-Dade, Collier and Hendry. Five Democrats qualified to appear on the Aug. 14 primary ballot for District 39: Saunders of Key West; Dwight Bullard of Miami; James Bush III of Miami; Sal Gutierrez, a former Key Largo resident now living in Hudson; and John "J.J." Johnson of Miami. Saunders and Bush qualified for the ballot by obtaining more than 1,552 petition signatures. The others paid a $1,781 filing fee. The winner will face the lone Republican in the race, Homestead health-care lobbyist Scott Hopes, in November. Hopes officially filed all his paperwork Thursday. Miami residents Matthew Tisdol and Terrence Exume have filed as write-in candidates.2 Republicans, one Democrat on the ballotELECTION 2012By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com

Gustavo Marin, president of the Zgm Group in Miami, paid his qualifying fee Friday. Gloria Romero Roses, a Broward County businesswoman, is making her first run for Congress. Lamar Sternad, a Cutler Bay hotel executive, qualified with a fee Friday. Key Largo resident Jose Peixoto, the only Monroe County resident still in the race, paid a $6,960 qualifying fee to run with no party affiliation. Angel Fernandez of Cutler Bay also paid a qualifying fee with no party affiliation. Douglas Walker, a Shark Key resident who owns a Pennsylvania manufacturing firm and previously owned the Oceanside Marina on Stock Island, has discontinued his campaign. Walker announced his campaign for the seat's Republican nomination in April. He didn't pay ballot-qualifying fees by Friday's deadline. Attempts to contact him were not successful. Erik Borgstrom, a Pinellas County Republican who filed papers to run for District 26, might not have submitted enough petition names to qualify for the race. His last submission was in March, when he had 36 signatures. He needed nearly 3,000. Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who has represented Monroe County in Congress for a decade, is seeking re-election in a newly drawn district that does not include the Keys. Congressional candidates who live in Florida can seek election in any district.

Roughly 20 residents turned out to the Marathon library for the meeting led by DEO Community Assistance Consultant Patrick Howard. Zip lines are basically cables strung from platform to platform. Riders attached to them move to each platform through a pulley system. Courses are popular in the Caribbean, Hawaii and other tourist destinations around the globe. The City Council agreed in September to support Crane Point's plan by applying for a $735,000 Community Development Block Grant on behalf of the nonprofit. The DEO grant would help finance the estimated $1.1 million course. Howard began the meeting by explaining the lengthy and involved process by which CDBG grants are doled out. It starts with a series of public meetings, application reviews and a site visit, for which Howard was in town. Assuming everything is in order, Howard said, DEO could make an "offer to contract" within two to four weeks. The city would have 60 days to send a signed contract to the state. "The contract comes back to us and we get concrete proof the business has met all its financial requirements," Howard said. Howard said the city is then responsible for doing an "environmental review" and submitting it to the state before the grant if finalized. Public comment followed, with several people speaking for and against the zip line. Dive-shop owner Ed Davidson voiced concern about Crane Point projecting roughly 16,000 riders for the first year of the zip line. "I think they're errantly optimistic is a kind way to say it. The consequences of those expectations not being met are Draconian to the taxpayers and has serious consequences to [Crane Point] should this project underperform dramatically," he said. Crane Point says a zip line would create 21 jobs. The city would have to pay DEO back $35,000 for each job not created. Crane Point says it would get a line of credit to cover the cost of four jobs not created, if needed. Deb Curlee, a board member of Keys environmental group Last Stand, said a zip line would drive the white-crowned pigeon away from what is an important feeding ground for it. Curlee also questioned the viability of a zip-line course at Crane Point Hammock, which everyone in attendance agreed has struggled to stay afloat in recent years. She said "a skeleton crew" is running the nonprofit.

Daniels said Friday that he met with some council members, as well as city Finance Director Peter Rosasco, and learned the job is "a lot more work than I bargained for." "I said, Do I really want to take away from my kids to do this?'I still have a full-time job and my construction company. I just decided that I don't want to take away from my family right now," he said. Daniels is married with three young children. Daniels said it dawned on him how important the job is when, prior to even beginning to campaign, he received calls on several local issues. "I have to say that even though I don't agree with all the council members, I can certainly appreciate the fact that they work hard and whoever gets elected is going to have to work hard to serve the city. I hope Marathon elects the three best people," he said. Daniels said he plans to be more active in the community he's a former president of the Marathon Jaycees and the Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerce and would consider running for political office in the future. "I've taken a hiatus for five or six years and concentrated on making a living. I'm going to get more involved in the city," he said. Daniels dropping out leaves four candidates running for three seats opening on the dais. Voting is at large, meaning the top three vote getters are elected. Two-time candidate Larry Shaffer declared early on, followed by incumbents Ginger Snead and Dick Ramsay and former city employee C.J. Geotis. The general election is Nov. 6. The 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.He says job of councilman not for nowBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comELECTION 2012 ACROSS 1Door fastening 5NBA's Unseld 8Seafood order 13Olpe 18Cygnus ___:mute swan 19Nashville campus 20Verandah,in Hawaii 21First duke of Normandy 22Stack 23Court fig. 24Dejected,old style 25Mythical hunter 26Overlapping Gaynor/Beatty films 30Thread prefix 31Cover 32Campaigned 33Like the fabled Piper 35Stout 36Kimono adjuncts 38Choler 42Overlapping Garland/Holliday films 47Payed to play 48Cafe au ___ 49"I'd hate to break up ___" 50Commonly,to Cato 51Secondhand 52Stow cargo 53Eartha of song 54Best 55Howard or Murray 56___ slump:fall off 57Hercules'captive 58Team number 59Overlapping Presley/Duvall films 65Bulldogs 66Wield a baton 67Brass "silencer" 68Conger 70Small piano 73Disguise 74Pituitary hormone, initials 75River of S.Bulgaria 76Erstwhile Ulyanov 77The law 78Cooking direction 79Thorny twig 80Overlapping Brando/Henreid films 84Corn sticks 85Pianist Von Alpenheim 86Yoko 87Snout 88Cinque follower 89South Seas staple 90___ bell (sound familiar) 93Overlapping Hepburn/Davis films 102Valerie Harper sitcom 103Of a hereditary rank 104Waugh or Baldwin 105Fateful day for Caesar 106Discussion group 107Put on cloud nine 108Hide's partner 109"___ but the brave..." 110T-bone 111Descartes and Coty 112Part of HRH 113Off yonder DOWN 1School dances 2UFO passenger 3Clear up 4Seized first 5"___ malice toward none" 6Balt 7Kind of terrier 8Piano's ancestor 9Disabled 10Presently 11Chagall 12Shankar,for one 13Crinkle the brow 14Bee proboscis part 15Et ___ 16Coin receiver 17___ -Tiki 19More fleshy 27Water nymph 28Distribute 29Anti-Tweed cartoonist 34Widens 35Rose lover 36Pearl source 37Symbol of redness 38Borneo sultanate 39Take it easy 40Falls behind 41Islet 42Photographer Adams 43Pool member 44Egyptian statesman 45Pinned down 46Manifest 47Sea bird 52Boundary 53Rochester camera 54___ of Forth 56Treasure State capital 57Actually existing 58Atomic particle 60Doge's domain, once 61Pass 622104,to Cato 63Macabre 64Passover feast 69Choreographer Lubovitch 70Insulting blow 71Gourd fruit 72Privy to 73Cleaning tools 74"...sharp as ___ edged sword" 75Tierra del Fuego's land 77Geometric figure78"Crime and Punishment"heroine79Fundamental 81Stead 82Pasta 83"Alas,poor ___!" 88Approach stealthily 89Home or blue 91Woden,the ___war 92Atlanta's Omni 93Say again? 94Tops 95Brainstorm 96Bulrush 97"___ Get It for You Wholesale" 98Unthinking 99Swiss artist 100Go off course 101Flanders stream 102Child's collection: Abbr.

Christopher D. Golden D.M.D. COSMETICANDRESTORATIVEDENTISTRYOFTHEKEYS Griffiths: Psych tests for chiefMonroe County School Board member Andy Griffiths is calling for the five finalists to be the next Keys schools superintendent to undergo psychological evaluations. He says School District legal staff determined it's legal despite federal law governing privacy when it comes to medical issues. "Let's make perfectly sure we're not going to get a surprise later," Griffiths says. He likened the screening to what police officers go through when applying for jobs. Asked if political candidates or elected officials Griffiths is running for reelection this year should undergo psychological screening, he said, "We're not primary decision makers. We're policy makers. Because we go through the electoral process, that's up to the voter to decide if we're crazy or not." He's going to pitch the idea of psych tests for the finalists to his fellow board members when they meet Tuesday at 3 p.m. at district headquarters in Key West. Among the finalists for superintendent is Jesus Jara, the sitting superintendent of Florida Keys schools; he's also one of two finalists vying for the top job with the Springfield (Mass.) Public Schools, a place he previously worked as a principal. Friday, three members of that system's School Committee were to visit the Keys to interview teachers, schools staff and administrators. Jara says the visit isn't intended to observe and evaluate him, but to gather information from those with whom he works and supervises. Azell Cavaan, communications officer for Springfield Public Schools, says the district visit would be followed by an interview in Massachusetts on June 18, with a committee selection coming by June 30. "They haven't discussed a start date." In the Keys, the advertised start date is Aug. 1, with a salary of between $125,000 and $150,000; Jara earns $135,000. The board is scheduled to make its choice at a 5 p.m. June 28 meeting at Coral Shores High School. That's preceded by three meet-and-greets, all 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on June 25 at First State Bank on Simonton Street in Key West, June 26 at Centennial Bank in Key Largo and June 27 at Iberia Bank in Marathon. The four finalists besides Jara are: Thomas Gay, a principal administrator for a Broward County private school. Shannon Goodsell, superintendent of Tahlequah (Okla.) Public Schools in Tahlequah. Mark Porter, superintendent of South Washington County (Minn.) Schools. Edward Shine, superintendent of the Rye (N.Y.) City School District. Shine made national headlines this week when three Westchester, N.Y., teens from Shine's district were charged with felony assault, among other things, for allegedly hazing a group of 15 freshmen by beating them with a paddle. In a letter to district parents, Shine says, "We will do all we can to protect the health and welfare of all the students at Rye Middle School and Rye High School and we appreciate your continued patience and understanding during this time." This is the first time the Keys superintendent will be hired by the board rather than elected; voters made the change in a countywide referendum in 2010.Board member pitches idea this TuesdayBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSMan flees, jumps from own boatAn Islamorada man jumped from his moving boat while a state marine officer was chasing him Tuesday night at Snake Creek, an incident report says. Thomas A. Bible, 36, was arrested on felony charges of fleeing by boat and violently resisting arrest when stopped in shallow water, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Officer Shelton Bartlett said in his report he tried to stop Bible's 19-foot Aquasport open fisherman for running without navigation lights around 10 p.m. Tuesday at the sound end of Plantation Key. "Bible threatened to kill the officer, then refused to stop his vessel," said Officer Bobby Dube, an FWC spokesman. A few minutes into the oceanside chase, "Bible jumped into the water while his own vessel was still underway." Bible swam to the nearby shoreline but Bartlett caught up to him in shallow water. After a struggle, the officer used pepper spray on Bible. Crew aboard a U.S. Coast Guard boat arrived and helped take Bible into custody. The defendant "continued to be combative" and made threats, Dube said. Bible "appeared to be intoxicated," the FWC noted. After being assessed at Mariners Hospital, Bible was booked. Additional counts of operating under the influence and reckless operation of a boat are under review by the Monroe County State Attorney's Office.UPPER KEYS By Keynoter Staff

Let's be creative and come up with a solution to keep her at 100 percent. Without Chris'expertise filing transcripts, essays, applications and references with very tight deadlines, we would not have the results we do. Chris'research and time spent filing references for our students helps them get into excellent colleges and win great scholarships. If she is cut to 75 percent, she will not be able to meet the tight deadlines and this will definitely hurt our students'chances. We work so hard to provide these students with the education necessary to attend great colleges; we need Chris'expertise to ensure everything is filed on time to get in to these colleges with the scholarships they deserve. This year, Chris has been assisting Marathon High School with some of its behind-the-scenes career counseling work. Awin/win solution to this problem would be for Marathon High School to pay Chris Harris the 25 percent proposed cut in return for her spending one day per week at Marathon High and bringing some of the work to Coral Shores as she has done this year. Paying approximately $10,000 to prepare the Marathon students for college and much-needed scholarships is a real bargain. After all the hard work that has been done by both teachers and students, lets not let them down by losing our very much needed and well qualified counselor, Chris Harris. Wayne Carter Islamorada Editor's note: Wednesday, School District officials decided Harris will maintain her salary for the coming school year.Partnerships workThe Marathon High School Exceptional Student Education Department would like to thank the following organizations for their partnership with the high school. These community partners have provided opportunities for students to learn employability skills and social skills needed for successful employment. Thank you to Oria Araque with Monroe County Social Services, Charlotte Roberts and Michelle Echeverria with the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles in Marathon, Jessica Maqueira and the staff with the Marathon Tax Collector's Office, and especially to Tax Collector Denise Henriquez, who made it possible for the Tax Collector's Office and DMVto work with us. Cathy Grostefon Marathon High SchoolDon't mischaracterizeI wish to bring to your attention inaccurate information that has been floating around regarding the operation of Florida's Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program and the work of the program's 300-plus volunteers. Some of you may be aware of two recent opinion pieces run on www.tcpalm.com titled "Families feel powerless against elder abuse" and "Our seniors are at even greater risk." I would like to clarify some information written in these opinion pieces. The duties, responsibilities and advocacy work of the program have not changed. Ombudsman volunteers continue to protect the health, safety, welfare and rights of residents living in long-term care facilities. Our office receives numerous letters of thanks for the work performed by our ombudsmen. It would be a shame if that fine work were stained by inaccurate information in an attempt to derail our program. There are more than 168,000 beds in Florida's long-term care facilities with residents served by countless donated hours of our selfless volunteer ombudsmen. Since May 2011, our volunteer numbers have increased 25 percent statewide and have remained steady over the past year. In the Treasure Coast District, which serves Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee counties, where this opinion piece was published, ombudsmen volunteer numbers are up by 200 percent. As always, when we receive complaints, we respond. Statewide, this office received more than 7,873 complaints this year. Volunteers donated more than 21,532 hours on complaint investigations. And the year is far from over. Since the Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program was founded in 1975, our mission has always focused on the real issues that affect Florida's elders: Neglect, abuse, scams, age discrimination, residents'rights, exploitation, safety and welfare. Through the ongoing efforts of our ombudsmen, the long-term-care ombudsman's participation and representation in the governor's Assisted Living Facility Workgroup and in the ALF negotiated rulemaking meetings, we will tirelessly persist in our efforts to bring about positive change for Florida's longterm-care facility residents. If you need help or would like to submit a complaint on behalf of a loved one living in a long-term-care facility, or if you have questions or want more information about the work and accomplishments of the Ombudsman Program, I encourage you to call us at (888) 831-0404 or visit http://ombudsman.myflori da.com online. Jim Crochet Long-term-care ombudsman TallahasseeSchools superintendent could be making choice between two jobs or be out of workThe calendar won't prove kind to the Monroe County School District's superintendent search process this month. In case you missed Wednesday's Keynoter Superintendent Jesus Jara is a finalist for two top schools jobs, one here in Monroe County, the other in Springfield, Mass. Here's the rub: The search committee for the Massachusetts district interviewed Jara's colleagues in the Keys on Friday. He travels to Springfield June 18 for interviews with the search committee up there, where Jara served as a high school principal before coming to the Keys. Jara is one of five finalists for the Keys superintendent's post, which he has held on an interim basis, appointed by Gov. Rick Scott when his predecessor Joseph Burke left to take a superintendent job in Fort Myers. In the Springfield district, Jara is one of two finalists. So what are the odds? We may never know, especially if the Monroe County School Board makes its decision, as promised, on June 28 two days before the Springfield committee makes its recommendation. On June 28, the Monroe County School Board meets at Coral Shores High School starting at 5 p.m. Could be a good show. Be there.The Keys are pretty coolHey, we finally made a list where we're not the hottest place in the U.S. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported May was the second-warmest on record in the continental United States. Thirty-one states east of the Rocky Mountains reported spring temperatures broke records. May's temperature average over the contiguous United States was 64.3 degrees, or 3.3 degrees above normal. For spring, the average was 57.1 degrees, 5.2 degree above normal. The previous record for warmest spring was set in 1910; this spring beat that year by two degrees, NOAAreported. In Key West, though, May temperatures averaged 75.7 degrees, which only managed to be the 14th warmest on record over the past 68 years. We were far cooler than some communities in the U.S. where heat records fell, some dating back before 1900. Lexington, Ky., had the hottest May average temperatures in 129 years; Knoxville, Tenn., broke records dating back 103 years. New York City set May temperature records dating back 137 years. The good news: The Keys still managed to be a "cool" spot to vacation, with hotels and vacation rentals reporting strong spring business. Now all we need is a quiet, hurricane-free summer, to put the icing on the cake -and wouldn't that be cool?Charter school not in near futureArepresentative of charterschool management firm Imagine Schools met with Middle Keys parents on Wednesday in an informal question-and-answer session but made clear his outfit isn't pursuing a Marathon location. About 40 parents turned out at Kirk of the Keys Presbyterian Church to hear from Christian Cascone, Imagine's southern U.S. director of real estate development. Melissa Hager, who homeschools two of her children, helped organize the meeting with Cascone, who is a frequent visitor to the Middle Keys and has made some local connections in previous trips. Hager's said she just wants to see the options. Cascone made clear right off the bat: "Imagine Schools is not coming here. We're not interested, in the time being, in putting a charter school here." With that, he explained how a community would pursue starting a charter, which is funded by the state like a traditional public school but not held to the same rigid curriculum and reporting standards. Cascone said strong academics, a good building, qualified teachers, a great principal and a critical mass of students are all important when planning a charter. "You have to have a great principal to lead the school. If you do, it can provide a great advantage. They know every student by name and their parents and their needs." On the topic of parents: "We require 20 hours of volunteering from the parents each year. Parents want to be involved but it's hard to do it. If you can't make it, they're not going to expel the child, but it's expected." "It's important to handle this like a partnership with the school district," he said. There are six charters in the Keys serving students from prekindergarten through high school: The Big Pine Academy, Key West Montessori, Key West Collegiate School, Sigsbee Charter in Key West, Ocean Studies in Tavernier and Treasure Village Montessori in Islamorada.

When Jara unveiled a list of preliminary line-item budget cuts earlier in the year, he projected potential savings of $600,000. Three companies responded to the district's request for proposals to provide transportation, with the most promising offer coming from Student Transportation of America based in Jacksonville. At first glance, STAsays it can run operations, exclusive of fuel, for $2,676,200 compared to the district's cost of $3,176,200, which includes fuel. In his analysis, Purchasing Accountant Corey Wybensinger pegged fuel costs at $500,000, meaning outsourcing would cost $88,974 more than keeping the operation in house. He provided that information to Chief Operating Officer Michael Kinneer at 11:26 a.m. on Wednesday. Just eight minutes later, Kinneer e-mailed Jara with his recommendation to reject all bids. "There are not any savings that would justify an outsourcing of the Transportation Department." And after another eightminute increment, at 11:42 a.m., Jara sent an e-mail to all administrators and principals informing them the bids would be rejected. Last summer, in a similar budget crunch, the district outsourced its Custodial Department to private firm GCAServices Group of Tennessee. That move saved more than $800,000. In another matter affecting the Transportation Department, the district is having trouble getting drivers to bus kids to summer school. "We are trying to work with the bus drivers to see if anyone is willing to drive the summer routes," Jara says. In the meantime, Director of Assessment Christina McPherson told principals on Tuesday: "There is not enough transportation personnel to run summer school buses. Please notify your parents immediately that [the Monroe County School District] cannot provide bus transportation for the summer school programs. I am sorry." Busing will be provided for extended school-year students "with disabilities beyond the regular 180-day school year," according to Florida Department of Education literature.Officials say little savings to be realizedBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS

The problem is, we are at that stage of life where we'd like to take off from time to time and do some traveling. We don't fully trust our key employee with all of the cash and are thinking about making some changes to allow us more freedaom. As long as I'll be making changes, is there anything I can do to prevent employee theft? What can I do to protect myself? Answer: I get a lot of questions about how to, in effect, install a remote control on these kinds of businesses. There are a number of things a cash business owner can do to minimize the amount and risk of employee theft. But there is no way you're going to eliminate it. The way to minimize theft is to install infrastructure appropriate to the business. What's infrastructure? It's the right combination of management, systems and planning that maximizes profit within acceptable risk parameters. Alright, enough consultantspeak. Here are some things a small cash business can do: Use a new-hire screening service to screen, test and background check prospective employees. If you are a male business owner, capitalize on that famous female intuition and have one of your female friends interview the prospect, as well. Have your employee deposit each day's receipts intact (meaning don't let them pay expenses out of the receipts) into the business' bank account. Keep track of your receipts on a daily basis. After a couple of months or years, you will start to have a valuable database that can be used to compare current with historical cash receipts. Check to make sure your business insurance policy covers "employee dishonesty." Take an inventory of your behavior. If you are honest in all of your business dealings, your employees are likely to be honest, as well. If you are dishonest, or if you are honest "except for" things like insurance companies, the IRS, etc., you run a greater risk of loss from employee dishonesty. Having an employee who is writing checks on company bank accounts opens up a whole new world of risk exposure. If you're doing this, make sure you have a good accounting system and that you are reviewing the reports the system generates. If the employee is writing checks, make sure the bank mails bank statements directly to you. Abetter plan would be to have the employee prepare and sign the checks, but have the checks sent to you or another party for mailing or distribution. Employ "shoppers" to periodically check on how employees are handling your customers. While the shopper is doing this, they can look for evidence of employee dishonesty. Use video cameras and other kinds of security monitoring devices. Some of these can be accessed by the owner's computer on a realtime basis. Subscribe to a service like WebEx that allows you to access and control software applications running on a remote computer over the Internet. Assuming you have an Internet link, you can go onto the business computer and look at everything that happened yesterday, last week, last month or whenever. I know one owner who does this from his sailboat while swinging on the hook in a marina that gives him Internet access. These are some of the more common ways to run your business via remote. Other controls exist, and are limited only by the creativity of the individual owner and his or her pocketbook. Now that you've received some good ideas about how to bulletproof your business, go on out there, have some fun and make money.

Finally, we got rain. My plants soaked it up and they look vibrant again. My two rain barrels are now overflowing and I wish I had a third. Despite this, I continue to have water woes. The problem is the water we use inside the house. I admit I can be a bit obsessive about not wasting water. Every month I review our water bill and look at the past 12 months on the little graph that is printed on the bill. From last May to October, we averaged 2,500 gallons of water per month. Then suddenly it jumped in November to 3,500 gallons. There are only two of us in the house and we do the same things every month. We did have house guests and it was the holiday season, so I put my concerns aside even when December's bill read 3,500 gallons again. However the last straw was when January's bill showed 4,100 gallons. Turns out we had a faulty toilet that would start running intermittently and it was getting worse. Even though it's a low-flow (1.6 gallons per flush) toilet, the wasted water almost doubled our normal water use. My husband fixed it and our water use dropped down to an average of 2,800 gallons a month. I count myself lucky to live in the Keys. Many people visit and would love to live here, too. The climate is great, there is lots of natural beauty and it is home to the only living barrier coral reef in the continental U.S. How-ever, coral reefs are very fragile and sensitive to stresses such as water pollution from runoff and groundwater seepage. Studies have shown that all is not well in the marine environment and increases in bacteria and nutrient levels in the canals and offshore waters have been attributed to septic tanks and cesspits commonly used throughout the Keys. That is why I am pleased that plans can proceed with the Cudjoe Regional centralized wastewater system and treatment plant, which will eliminate thousands of septic systems and cesspits. I know this comes with a cost and there is concern about how much each homeowner has to bear in the initial setup and the monthly costs. But in my mind, the bigger cost is losing the coral reef and, consequently, many people's livelihoods to pollution. We pay for the water coming in; we don't pay for it leaving. That will happen when we connect to the central sewer system. This could double our bills. That has motivated my husband and I to look at our future use. At the moment, I use the water in one rain barrel to water plants and rinse yard tools. We have a sump pump to use in the second barrel and the plan is to use this water to wash down his boat and diving equipment. We are looking to replace the once-faulty toilet with an even lower-flow model so less is used and less will be disposed of. Any hand washing of dishes will be done in a bowl and the remaining water will go onto plants on the porch. Shirley Gun is a member of the Keyswide nonprofit Green Living & Energy Education.

Beetles used to eradicate white fliesExperts from the University of Florida's Tropical Research and Education Center extension are conducting a pilot project expected to alleviate Key Biscayne's ongoing whitefly problem. The village of Key Biscayne spent $12,000 on the project, which consists of releasing predatory beetles at locations in Key Biscayne. The first group was released May 29. For the next six months, more will be released at differing time intervals. Experts will monitor the release sites for about a year. "The point of it is to gather more information to determine how these beetles establish," said Catharine Mannion, the agricultural extension service's whitefly expert. The rugose spiraling whitefly is notorious due to the insect species'tendencies to leave behind a steady, damaging and costly stream of sticky goo on cars and driveways and even in pools. It showed up in the Keys about a year ago and has maintained a sticky presence ever since. The Monroe County Cooperative Extension Service conducts ongoing clinics throughout the Keys to educate people about how to battle them. The specific beetle species, known as the nephaspis oculatus, prey on differing types of spiraling whitefly. But Mannion said not much is known about whether this particular beetle will prey on the rugose spiraling whitefly. Both Key Biscayne and its residents have tried pesticides in hopes of getting rid of the flies. They have seen little success. Though experts hope the predatory "ladybeetles" will alleviate the whitefly population, they do not think it will completely eliminate the pest population. "You don't eliminate the pest, you try to get its population down to a low level so they're not an issue and cause a problem for people," Mannion said. Similar programs in other states have yielded successful results. Experts, like Mannion, believe nature will provide the ultimate solution to help curb the pest's population. "The village did not want to rely solely on pesticides, and wanted to explore the possibility of lending nature a hand in accelerating the process," said Mariana DominguezHardie, administrative assistant to the director at the village's department of public works. The nephaspis oculatus species is known to snack on a similar whitefly that, according to Mannion, "deals with whiteflies that produce all that white, waxy material." Its ability to handle the residue the pests leave behind may qualify the predatory beetle species as a natural enemy of the Rugose Spiraling Whitefly. "We're not allowed to bring something into some other place without undergoing a high level of testing to determine if there would be some other impact," Mannion said. "We're moving these beetles from other locations in South Florida that don't have the whitefly problem any longer. Ultimately, with time, they may have moved into the location on their own, but that takes a really long time. We've jumpstarted the process." In addition to transporting existing groups of the predatory insect to Key Biscayne, experts are releasing laboratoryreared beetles.Key Biscayne has similar problem as KeysBy STEPHANIE PARRAsparra@MiamiHerald.com ENVIRONMENT

Get drinks served by local notablesYou can show your support for the Monroe County Domestic Abuse Shelter while having a good time on Wednesday. That's when, from 5 to 8 p.m., Salty's and the 7 Mile Marina at mile marker 47 bayside in Marathon are hosting a celebrity bartending night for the shelter. Bartenders will include state Rep. Ron Saunders; Marathon Boat Yard and Marine Center owner Bruce Popham; Dr. Doug Mader, owner of the Marathon Veterinary Hospital; Daniel Samess, chief executive of the Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerce; Leigha Fox, on-air personality at US1 Radio; Key Largo-based attorney Bernadette Restivo; and Keynoter Editor Larry Kahn. They will get behind the bar and serve up fresh cocktails, and all tips at the bar go to the shelter. If you order something complicated, no worries: Real bartenders will be on hand to help. The event will include a silent auction, 50-50 raffle and giveaways.Fundraiser set for salon ownerLisa Cameron, owner of the ACut Above salon in Marathon, has suffered from recent strokes and needs help covering her medical bills.

Marathon Lumber is donating a generator that will be raffled.Kids'spelling bee returns to Key WestThe fifth annual Frederick Douglass Community Center Summer Spelling Bee returns to the Key West center, 111 Olivia St., on Aug. 3, but word lists are available at the center come June 18. Hours are 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays. The bee is open to children ages 9 to 16. For more information, contact Gwendollyn Sommers, Charles Major Jr., Ashley James or William Staffford at 2938305. Picking up the list early allows your child plenty of time to study the possible words to be used in the bee. If you're one of those people who says there should be an app for that every time you're confronted with one of life's little quandaries, you've probably already imagined this: An app that will tell you how ugly you are. Too late. The Ugly Meter has been around for more than a year, but thanks to a recent mention by Howard Stern on his satellite radio show, it's suddenly become a sensation, with upward of 5 million purchases. You snap a photo of yourself and the app scans the image and evaluates it for things like symmetry, proportions of features, and face shape. It then registers a score between 10 (ugliest) and zero (least ugly) and "interprets" the score by displaying nasty little bon mots like "any similarity between you and a human is purely coincidental." For the pleasure, users pay 99 cents for a regular version and $4.99 for the upgrade, the Ugly Meter PRO. But don't go calling a plastic surgeon if you rate poorly. It seems that a scanned photo of Brad Pitt registered a dismal 8. "Mad Men" actress Christina Hendricks scored a mortifying 10. In other words, Ugly Meter is complete nonsense. No one seems more aware of this than the app's creator, Dapper Gentlemen, whose website pokes fun at its own press, particularly stories in which cyber-bullying experts were persuaded to weigh in on how the app might be damaging to young egos. "Oh look, yet another news organization picking up on a fake story and bringing us even more press and sales," wrote the gentlemen. "Hizzah!" The Ugly Meter comes at an interesting moment in the history of navel gazing. "Who's the fairest of them all?" was once a private discussion between ourselves and our mirrors. But now we're casting a wider net, crowdsourcing our looks, yearning for a quantifiable metric. This has been a long time in the making. In 1999, the attractiveness ratings site Rate My Face gave way to Hot or Not, which inspired Mark Zuckerberg's first social media venture, Facemash, which allowed Harvard students to assess the physical desirability of their classmates based on hacked images of their ID photos. It was shut down by the university within days. No matter, Facemash's behemoth spawn, Facebook, has gone on to spin those shallow impulses into a way of life. For all the interests the uber-site fosters political movements, fan clubs, adorable kittens the interest that generally trumps them all is self-interest. What, after all, are those carefully curated photos of babies and kitchen remodels and homemade gourmet meals if not invocations to be measured against others? Why has the false modesty known as the "humblebrag" ("Sophie's torn between Yale and Princeton; tough times here!") become the common language of social media? Why do most of us have at least one "friend" on Facebook who periodically posts a photo of herself accompanied by a phrase like "I've still got it!" or "not bad for 40"? And why do so many "friends" of this "friend" chime in with a stream of predictably disingenuous praise along the lines of "ooh la la!"? Well, partly because Zuckerberg has made it easy. But our need for public validation (and its corollary, public humiliation) is also the product of a culture whose obsession with image is matched only by its obsession with classifying and ranking things. In a sense, our whole world has become an Ugly Meter. Not because we're ugly or beautiful, but because we will have lost a basic human trait: The ability to judge for ourselves.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 4B Saturday,June 9,2012 Depressing era captured beautifully unfortunatelyThe Deep Blue Sea,Ž Rated R, 98 minutes. Opens Friday, June 8, Tropic Cinema. The Deep Blue SeaŽ is based on the award winning Terence Rattigan stage play from the years right after World War II and features Rachel Weisz (The WhistleblowerŽ) as Hester Collyer, Tom Hiddleston (The AvengersŽ) as Freddie Page and Simon Russell Beale (My Week with MarilynŽ) as Sir William Collyer. Directed by Terence Davies, whose specialty seems to be tragic and unhappy stories, the film is beautifully photographed by German cinematographer Florian Hoffmeister, with dark, smoky interiors and hazy brown exteriors that convincingly evoke that depressing yet hopeful period of reconstruction in Britain. Unfortunately, despite an emotional and gripping performance from Weisz, Davies subjects the viewer to 98 minutes of ongoing depression without any sign of hope. The story begins, appropriately enough, with Hesters attempted suicide and, as the story unfolds, the viewer may wonder why she is trying to kill herself. Hester is married to a well-respected lawyer and high court judge and has all the comforts that lofty position offers.

At that time in history, many women would be envious of her life. Well, it turns out that she is madly, deeply, irretrievably in love with Freddie Page, a younger neer-do-well who lusts after her, but does not love her back. She leaves her husband and moves in with Freddie, who was a funloving RAF pilot during the war but now has become cold and abusive. Hiddleston recently appeared as Loki, the villain in The Avengers,Ž but even that character wasnt as cruel as this Freddie. In a brutally callous gesture after Hesters suicide attempt, he throws some money at her for the gas meter, hinting that she should finish the job. Why she persists in staying with Freddie is the big unanswered question in the movie. When deep in thought, Hester lights cigarettes and smokes in that slow, unhurried manner so reminiscent of the days of black and white movies. The stilted conversations are filled with long silences, clipped answers, emotional pleadings and over-wrought melodrama. None of the characters are particularly appealing and viewers will more than likely have a hard time caring whether she lives or dies. Its clear that were supposed to empathize with her, but some in the theater may find themselves wanting to pitch in on the gas money with Freddie. The Deep Blue SeaŽ accurately shows the reality of a doomed love affair and the ensuing depression. But just because a film is accurate doesnt make it interesting. And if the story isnt interesting, do we really want, or need, to see that reality? Actors probably relish parts like these that allow them to show their acting chops and fulfill a desire to do seriouswork. But Im afraid that watching The Deep Blue SeaŽ will only seem like serious work to the viewer. Hester survives her suicide attempt and her life goes on.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 6B Saturday,June 9,2012 Cosmic smashup predicted, but Earth will surviveDon't worry about when the world as we know it might end. NASA has calculated that our entire Milky Way galaxy will crash into a neighboring galaxy with a direct head-on hit in 4 billion years. Astronomers in a NASAnews conference last Thursday said that years of observations from the Hubble Space Telescope provide grisly details of a long-anticipated galactic smashup. Astronomers had seen the Andromeda galaxy coming at us, but thought there was a chance that its sideways motion would make it miss or graze the Milky Way. Hubble readings now indicate that's not the case. "This is pretty violent as things go in the universe," said Roeland van der Marel, an astronomer with the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore that operates Hubble. "It's like a bad car crash in galaxy-land." Scientists say the sun and Earth are unlikely to be hit by stars or planets from Andromeda because of the vast emptiness of the two galaxies. So Earth should easily survive what will be a 1.2 million mile per hour galactic merger. Even at that speed, the event would take about 2 billion years. Once it's over, our solar system would be in a different place in the cosmos. The collision would dramatically change the view of the nighttime sky from Earth with Andromeda suddenly dominating, the astronomers said. The only way Andromeda could miss colliding with the Milky Way is if it were moving sideways about six times faster than Hubble indicates it is, said van der Marel, who is publishing the latest findings in an upcoming issue of Astrophysical Journal. Five years ago, Avi Loeb, head of Harvard University's astronomy department, simulated this crash and pronounced a miss unlikely. He said the Hubble results strengthen his earlier findings. He calls the newly merged galaxy Milkomeda. Both the Milky Way and Andromeda are about the same size and same age 10 billion years old. At times they've been considered virtual twins so it's hard to tell which of the galaxies will get the worst of the collision, van der Marel said. When the collision is in full swing in 4 billion years, he said the sun will still have another 2 billion years before its expected death. However, by that time it will have grown so large and so hot that Earth might no longer be habitable without super-engineering techniques, he said. While this upcoming cosmic crash is dwarfed by the Big Bang that created the entire universe, van der Marel said this one could be called "the big smashup."It's violent car crash in galaxy-land'By SETH BORENSTEINAssociated PressASTRONOMY LIVING BRIEFSLearn to get most from MacThe Upper Keys Mac User Group welcomes Abby Ward Bellard, from Abby's Computer Tutors, when it meets at 7 p.m. June 14 at the Key Largo library, in Trade Winds Plaza at mile marker 101.4 oceanside.

She struggles a lot, too. Though I've been told this doesn't hurt, I'm having a hard time believing it. Answer: Nope. It doesn't hurt. Nail clipping may be annoying and frightening to your cat, and she may react negatively to being restrained, but pain is not a factor unless you're hitting the quick the tiny channel occupied by the claw's blood supply and nerve. However, in cats (as opposed to dogs, which often have black claws), it's pretty easy to see the pink tinge of the blood vessel within the claw. Staying a couple of millimeters away from this zone is all it takes to ensure a painless experience. That said, the stress associated with nail clipping can be considerable, which is why it's important for owners to acclimate their cats this procedure early on and to always associate it with a positive outcome -like treats. Want to be extra-sure you're doing it right? Look up a tutorial on YouTube. Or next time you're in for a regular visit, ask your vet or a veterinary technician to show you how it's best done.
