Schools, as its No. 1 choice. The board hopes to seal a three-year contract with Porter and have him in place in a month. But Jara could put a wrench in that. Last Aug. 8, Gov. Rick Scott appointed him superintendent for a term to run until Jan. 7, 2013. He replaced Joe Burke, who resigned last year. Burke had replaced Randy Acevedo, removed from office in 2009 by then Gov. Charlie Crist following his indictment on misconduct charges. Acevedo was the last elected Keys schools superintendent, elected to a fouryear term in 2008. In 2010, voters said yes to the following referendum question: "Shall the school superintendent of Monroe County be employed by the district School Board upon expiration of the current superintendent's term?" So technically, Jara is filling out Acevedo's term and if he doesn't find a job come Aug. 1, he has no plans to step down. "I have a paper here from the governor's office that says I'm here until Jan. 7, 2013," he said Friday. Asked if he plans to stay until then, he said, "If I don't have another opportunity finalized, absolutely." "Whatever he does, I'm fine," said School Board Chairman John Dick, who cast the lone vote Thursday to retain Jara. "I was not in favor of [Porter] starting Aug. 1." Vice Chairman Andy Griffiths said he was under the impression Jara's term expires Nov. 15, the same day the winners of this year's School Board elections take office. "I guess we better find out what that date is," Griffiths said, adding the board needs to ask its attorneys. He said "it was alwaysHe's passed over for superintendent, but term he's filling goes to 2013MONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSSee Schools,2AWE HAVE A WINNER Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYThis little guy is all excited Wednesday when his name is pulled for a door prize at the banquet for a kids fishing derby in the Middle Keys.Thirty-one kids and 25 chaperones participated.Story, 1BCiting changes, council kills sewercontractTwo international companies appear to have lost a $93 million wastewater deal with the village of Islamorada because village officials say the contract the mayor signed is not the same document signed and returned to them from the companies this week. Mayor Michael Reckwerdt angrily told representatives of Veolia Water North America and AECOM during the Village Council's Thursday meeting that the deal is off as far as he is concerned. "I can tell you right now hell will freeze over before I will sign a contract with you," Reckwerdt said. Norman Anderson, an AECOM engineer and one of its negotiators, said outside the meeting room at Founders Park that he did not know anything about the contract being changed. "We did what they all asked us to do," Anderson said. "This is not what we anticipated would happen today." The five-member Village Council voted 4-1 on June 5 to approve the contract with the companies for them to design and build a wastewater system to pipe sewage north to Key Largo. Reckwerdt$93 million agreement was a milestoneISLAMORADASee Village,2APower-pole installation completeThe legal battles are still in high gear, but that hasn't stopped Keys Energy Services from installing 60 commercial power poles on No Name Key. Keys Energy Spokesman Julio Barroso said contractors completed installing the poles Wednesday and began running aerial wire from pole to pole on Thursday. Residents on the island off Big Pine Key have long battled officials and each other over bringing commercial electricity to the island. Currently, homes are powered by solar, generators or both. It appears that for now, the pro-power residents have won a major victory. But those residents are still a long way from electricity running through the lines, as a pair of lawsuits and a state Public Service Commission complaint remain unresolved. Barroso said the utility is required by the PSC to provide power to any customers seeking it within its service territory. Only the PSC or a court of law could prevent that, he said.Wires strung but electricity not imminentNO NAME KEY Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYKeys Energy Services contractors finish installing 60 power poles on No Name Key Wednesday and began running wire to them on Thursday.Jury: Jimenez guilty of murderAsix-person jury on Friday convicted Pablo Solano Jimenez of firstdegree murder in the May 31, 2010, killing of 37year-old Tracy Heshmaty of Stock Island. Jimenez, 29, faces sentencing before Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones on July 26 beginning at the 3:30 p.m. at the Freeman Justice Center in Key West. Assistant Monroe County State Attorney Mark Wilson, who prosecuted the case, says he will not seek the death penalty but rather life behind bars. Jurors agreed with Wilson's theory of the case: Jimenez bludgeoned Heshmaty to death with a 21pound coral rock in the back parking lot of First State Bank at 1201 Simonton St. in Old Town Key West. Part of proving firstdegree murder, Wilson told jurors, is deciding whether a reasonable person would think his or her actions in this case, beating someone over the head with a rock would cause death. He placed the jagged, blood-stained rock on the railing surrounding the jury box.Prosecutor to recommend life in prisonIN THE COURTS JIMENEZBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comBy RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comSee No Name,3ABy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comSee Trial,2A

Jara said hes a casualty for saving the district through troubled financial times and that some of his more unpopular decisions continuing unpaid furlough days for staff and reducing teacher ranks were made to keep this district from going bankrupt and getting taken over by the state. This is what happens when youre in a political position, he said. I really appreciate the chairman. Dicks first choice was Jara while the other four board members voted for Porter. If a contract cant be reached with him, the board would look to its second choice, Edward Shine, superintendent of the Rye (N.Y.) City School District. Jara was the boards third choice and Thomas Gay, principal of a Broward County private school, was its fourth. Earlier this month, Jara lost out on a bid to become superintendent of Springfield (Mass.) Public Schools and withdrew from consideration for the same job in Sante Fe, N.M. Porter was selected from an initial pool of 56 applicants. The salary range is $125,000 to $150,000. Jara, whom Burke hired in January 2010 to be chief operating officer, earns $135,000 annually. As for Porter, upon his selection to replace Jara, said, Im very pleased personally, as is my wife Jane. I think this is a great opportunity. Were very much looking forward to it and are confident that this will be a great relationship. Porter has worked in public education since 1978 and started out as a high school teacher.

Kenia Quiala Bosque, 30, remained in the Monroe County Detention Center at press time Friday in lieu of a $6,000 bond. Bosque was arrested before dawn Thursday on a prowling charge when a Sheriffs Office deputy saw two people acting suspiciously behind a Key Largo auto shop. Aformer resident of the Lower Keys now living in Hialeah, Bosque also was booked June 24 at the Stock Island jail on a count of violating probation. Bosques criminal record in the Keys starts in November 2010 when she was arrested along with two men found burglarizing a closed shrimp farm on Summerland Key. They were stripping copper wire from the property, police reports say. In December, Bosque was arrested in Miami on a charge of attempting to arrange an illegal adoption of her infant son, then 8 months old, in exchange for $7,000. The illegal-adoption case originated in Monroe County. Bosque, who had moved to Opa-Locka, called an acquaintance in the Lower Keys and offered to sell him the boy. The man alerted the Sheriffs Office and authorities tried to arrange a meeting. Bosque reportedly set a time and place to take the money but did not show up at the Hialeah location. Florida Department of Law Enforcement agents and Monroe deputies then arrested Bosque, also the mother of an 8-year-old and 6-year-old, at her Miami-Dade County apartment. Authorities said the fact that Bosque negotiated the sale on several recorded phone calls left them fearing for the childs well-being. All three of Bosques children were placed in the custody of her estranged husband, the biological father of the older two and acting parent to the infant. After release on bond, Bosque was awarded brief supervised visits with her children.In January, Bosque accepted a plea agreement in Miami-Dade family court that spared her prison time for the adoption offer, but required extensive counseling and parenting sessions.In Thursdays prowling arrest, Sgt. David Carey said he was patrolling near mile marker 104.5 around 12:45 a.m. when he saw an older panel truck turn its lights off as it turned into a side street. The vehicle stopped behind the Key Largo Auto Boutique, and two people left it to go behind a fence at the closed business. Abolt cutter and gloves were found in the truck, deputies said. The area was under patrol because of recent business burglaries.This time, its prowling, probation countCRIME SCENEsigned the contract on June 19 and sent it to Veolia and AECOM to be signed by their representatives. But hours before Thursdays meeting started, Reckwerdt said village attorneys Nina Boniske and Lillian Arnango discovered some language in the contract Veolia/AECOM signed and returned was different from the one the council approved. Reckwerdt said the changed language had to do with insurance and a few other things. But Councilman Don Achenberg said the specifics of what were changed do not matter. Council members made clear when they approved the contract earlier in the month that the document could not be changed at all after the mayor signed it. Reckwerdt said the only way a new agreement could move forward with Veolia and AECOM is if someone else from the council agreed to sign it. The other four members said they would not. Its become a trust issue at this point, said Councilman Ted Blackburn. Islamorada is running behind other Keys areas in complying with a December 2015 state mandate to install centralized sewage systems. Rather than build its own treatment plant, the village entered into an agreement with the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District earlier this year to pipe its sewage to Key Largos facility at mile marker 100.5. That agreement and the AECOM/Veolia deal were seen as significant milestones in the villages commitment to build sewers and comply with the mandate. The AECOM/Veolia deal was also a condition for the village to qualify for $20 million the state Legislature set aside to help pay for Islamoradas wastewater project, which latest estimates say will cost around $117 million.Its become a trust issueFrom Village,1ABy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com BOSQUE If Mr. Jimenez struck Ms. Heshmaty in the skull with this rock several times ... anyone who hits someone in the skull with a 21pound stone means to kill them. If you hit someone in the skull with something like that, youre going to cause some real damage. Especially if you strike them more than once. No specific motive was given but police say Jimenez and Heshmaty knew each other and had argued before her death. Wilson presented evidence that put Jimenez at the crime scene: Abloodspattered bicycle found at his trailer and a pair of blood-stained tennis shoes found discarded in a nearby garbage can. When arrested, Jimenez confessed to police that he hit Heshmaty with the rock and took her purse, Wilson stressed. Chief Assistant Monroe County Public Defender Patricia Docherty tried to nurture reasonable doubt by listing other people who were questioned or brought up during the investigation several even gave DNA samples but were never pursued as suspects. We did that to show you there are many other possibilities of someone who could have killed her that night and the state, instead of investigating thoroughly, the state, instead of looking at every single possibility, did a rush to judgment. Docherty focused on a speck of blood found on the left-side brake of Jimenezs bicycle the same one with blood spatter on it that, when tested, wasnt found to match him or Heshmaty. She also noted that police crime-scene investigators failed to analyze condoms, vaginal wipes, cigarette and cigar butts and beer containers found at the scene. Why is the state ignoring this? Why didnt they bring this up? They have the burden to prove this case beyond a reasonable doubt but it doesnt fit into their theory. They should present everything to you. You decide what happens.

*Saturday,June 30,2012 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com that, he said. "As a public agency, we have to provide our service to all without bias or discrimination and after several open public meetings, the Utility Board [of Key West] arrived at a democratic conclusion," Barroso said. Thirty-two of the 43 homeowners comprise the No Name Key Property Owners Association. It paid $650,000 to Keys Energy to install the poles and lines. The contracts for installation, as well as a conduit along the No Name Key Bridge, were approved on May 9. Circuit Court Judge David Audlin denied the county's request for a preliminary injunction hearing to stop the installation, and Assistant County Attorney Derek Howard said Monroe decided against having its Code Department red tag the construction. An injunction hearing is still scheduled for Aug. 29. "We're just going to proceed in Circuit Court," Howard said. "Assuming the lines [aerially] cross countyowned lots ... we'll amend the claim to include a count of trespass." The county filed suit against Keys Energy in March 2011 seeking "declaratory judgment" as to whether No Name power wires can cross aerial easements on county-owned conservation land. Barroso said placement of the poles was reconfigured to avoid crossing aerial easements. "The poles are not going to be on county property. The only thing that could potentially be an issue, but we don't see it as one, is that the wire that's going to be 40 feet in the air is going to be on the outside perimeter of the property," he said. That issue is in addition to a pair of pending actions before the PSC and Third District Court of Appeal dealing with who has final jurisdiction over electrifying No Name Key. Audlin was considering that case when pro-electricity resident Bob Reynolds filed a complaint with the PSC claiming it has final say. Audlin agreed and ruled as such on Jan. 31. Five No Name Key homeowners appealed that decision on Feb. 4, with the county joining in because the appeal takes the side of its ordinance banning the wires over public easements on No Name. The appeal will be in the Third District Court of Appeal. Howard said the PSC and Third DCAare expected to issue separate rulings on jurisdiction. "The PSC has not signed off on what Keys Energy has done," he said. "Just because the poles are there doesn't mean they'll stay there."Commercial power is far from a realityFrom No Name,1A Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYThis is one of the 60 poles a Keys Energy Services contractor installed on No Name Key.Roughly 100 feet in the background is the driveway of Alicia Putney,the most vocal opponent of commercial electricity on No Name.To the right,behind the trees, is where a development called Galleon Bay was once proposed.Historic home getting new home of its ownAhistoric house once owned by Marathon's first school teacher, Sue M. Moore, might have a permanent new home. The City Council on Tuesday awarded Realtor Brian Schmitt a building permit to move the house, and another house built by her son, to a lot at 94th Street (Lime Lane) and U.S. 1. The Sue Moore house was built around 1905 or so in Key West, then delivered to Marathon. Originally located at 2109 Overseas Highway, across from the U.S. Coast Guard station, the buildings were moved to Bruce Popham's Marathon Boat Yard before construction began on what is now a 10,000-square foot West Marine store in 2009. They've been stored at the boatyard ever since.Schmitt said he's unsure whether the house will be turned into a museum, but he wants to ensure its preservation."I don't know what it's going to be right now. [Popham] wanted to get rid of these buildings and I wanted to make sure they didn't end up at the dump," he said. Schmitt said he plans to place the house on short stilts on the new property once a transaction with Popham is complete. Popham said he's donating the Sue Moore house to Schmitt and selling the other for $50,000. "There's a lot that has to be done to them. This is a full project; it's like building a house. We have to redo the foundations and all that," Schmitt said. Both houses are made with Dade County pine and Popham said each is in good condition. Moore's is around 800 square feet, while the other is a 1,250-square-foot, three-bedroom house. "The house is in surprisingly great condition for how old they are," he said. Popham offered to donate the house to Crane Point Hammock in November 2008 if the city financed the move. The council directed staff to investigate options and what the move would cost, but the plan went nowhere. Moore came to Marathon in 1931 with husband Sam Murray Moore at age 56. She taught there until damage from the 1935 hurricane season caused the Monroe County School Board to close the Marathon school. Moore then taught on Big Pine Key, taking a ferry each Monday with Marathon's two eligible students and spending the week there before returning with them on Friday. She even taught as far south as Summerland Key before a school was built in Marathon in the early 1940s, according to accounts from Middle Keys historian Dan Gallagher. The School Board allocated $23,000 to build the schoolhouse. The city's first real school building, it was named the Sue Moore School. Moore taught one year there before retiring in 1947. That old school is now a state Department of Transportation yard.Moore house heading to 94th StreetMARATHON Keynoter photo by LARRY KAHNThis is the former home of Sue Moore,Marathon's first school teacher.It now sits at the Marathon Boat Yard but soon will be on the move.10 years for pirate movie'fracasAttackers armed with a speargun and machete paddled a canoe through Boot Key Harbor on an April evening in 2010. The defender, holding the high ground aboard a motor yacht, responded with a barrage of potted plants. "It was like a scene from a pirate movie," prosecutor Tanner Demmery said of the nautical fracas when describing it to a Monroe County Circuit Court jury in Marathon. Convicted last April of two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, defendant Adrian Yarbrough, 46, was sentenced June 19 to a 10-year stretch in state prison by Judge Ruth Becker. Yarbrough, listed as a habitual felony offender, received consecutive fiveyear terms. Yarbrough receives credit for two years spent in Monroe County custody since his arrest. "He was taken to trial once before but that ended in a hung jury," Demmery said. "So we were happy with the resolution. We were to be able to put things together." Aco-defendant, Randy L. Sharp, 50, has since entered a court filing to change his former notguilty plea. Sharp has a hearing scheduled July 5 where he may enter a guilty plea in hopes of a lighter sentence. The Monroe County Sheriff's Office and the U.S. Coast Guard responded to a 911 call from a Boot Key Harbor liveboard around 6:15 p.m. April 17, 2010. Awoman said the two men, who had given her trouble before, used racial slurs to insult her daughter when the younger woman went ashore at a dinghy dock. When the mother objected, Yarbrough and Sharp reportedly paddled a canoe to her boat and threatened violence. "She hid behind the cabin of her vessel and threw potted plants at them," says a Sheriff's Office account. Witnesses from other boats said they saw Sharp pull the trigger on the speargun, but it failed to fire. A machete was brandished. After a Coast Guard crew escorted the canoe to shore, deputies found "the canoe had numerous potted plants in it." Both Yarbrough and Sharp were originally charged with several counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Both have previous prison records, Demmery said.Speargun was fired but it didn't go offMARATHONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comBy RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com www.keysnet.com

KeysNet.com Keynoter 4A Saturday,June 30,2012 Skate park getting eyesThe Marathon City Council agreed Tuesday to protect its 2010 investment by reinstituting paid supervision at the skate park at the Marathon Community Park. The city paid $16,000 that year to remodel it and install new equipment, but City Manager Roger Hernstadt eliminated full-time employee Matt Tirillo's position at the park that October. Educational Coalition for Monroe County President Tina Belotti said Tirillo held the job for roughly four years. Belotti, whose ECMC nonprofit has long overseen the skate park, said trouble at the park began shortly after Tirillo was let go. "There were a lot of incidences of no supervision. There were high-risk behaviors and destruction of property. All of this was documented in photos," she said. That led Belotti to investigate the park's insurance through the city. It not only requires skaters to wear helmets, which many weren't, but also that a liability waiver be on file with the city. Belotti went to city advisory Parks and Recreation Board member Luis Gonzalez, and Councilman Mike Cinque put the item on Tuesday's regular meeting agenda. Cinque advocated staffing park supervisors and reviewed a list of skate park recommendations that he, Gonzalez and Hernstadt compiled. Among them: Proper signs indicating waiver requirements. Waivers are available at the main park office from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., and at the skate park from 4 to 10 p.m. Supervision will be put in place from 4 to 10 p.m. daily. Weekly maintenance and safety checks for all skate park equipment. "I'd like the council to consider these recommendations and the budgetary needs. We've come a long way to provide facilities and we're getting to the point we're going to have to be maintaining these facilities we invested in," Cinque said. City Parks and Recreation Director Jimmy Schmidt told the Keynoter that the city has hired three part-time employees to staff the skate park for 42 hours per week, or six hours per night. They'll earn $9.25 per hour.And liability waivers to be enforcedMARATHONMathewson offers apologyTwo-term Monroe County School Board member Duncan Mathewson opened a Thursday night board meeting with a brief apology for his Tuesday arrest on a charge of drunk driving. In remarks addressed to the public, the 73-year-old Mathewson offered an apology for "my silliness the night before last." Mathewson was released from the Marathon jail Wednesday afternoon, a little more than 16 hours after he was char-ged with driving under the influence of alcohol after being pulled over at mile marker 68. He was traveling back to his Little Torch Key home following a meet-and-greet of superintendent hopefuls in Key Largo. Sheriff's Office Deputy Michael Claudy arrested Mathewson a little before 9 p.m. Tuesday. The arrest report says someone called the Sheriff's Office to report a red pickup traveling too slow for the speed limit and "crossing into oncoming traffic." Claudy wrote that once he saw the truck and got behind it, it crossed the white shoulder line around Long Key State Park. That's when he pulled Mathewson over and noticed "a moderate to strong" smell of alcohol on his breath. His eyes were watery and glassy, Claudy wrote, but his speech was normal. As Claudy checked on the status of the driver and truck from his cruiser, Mathewson "got out of his car holding some papers," and his clothes were disheveled. That's when Mathewson was arrested. Mathewson gave two alcohol breath samples, blowing a .067 and.070, both below the Florida legal limit of .080. County Court Judge Ruth Becker released Mathewson to Pretrial Services and ordered him not to drink alcohol while his case is pending.

The issue is a 2007 item that locked in health insurance plans and premiums for a group of district administrators. Superintendent Jesus Jara called it a "special deal" that was being cleaned up as part of a larger overhaul of the district's employee insurance programs. Five years later, the resolution applies to 17 remaining administrators and costs the district about $33,000 per year. Griffiths, with 20 years on the board, voted in favor of the resolution in 2007 and said he would honor that commitment. He was the only one as the resolution was rescinded Thursday with a 4-1 vote. Board Chairman John Dick said "some of it was given out as political patronage" under thenSuperintendent Randy Acevedo. And he directed this to staff: "Make sure there's no special deals and nobody is getting any special treatment." "This is the end of hooking up your cuzzie with a benefit or a job with public tax dollars," Smith-Martin, elected in 2010, said over Griffiths, who was trying to get in a comment. "Don't interrupt me, please," Smith-Martin said. "You've been here for 20 years and we're having to clean it up." "There should be no special treatment because of who you know or who you were with in 2007," he concluded. Dick told Smith-Martin the comment was "uncalled for," prompting this response: "Am I incorrect?" That's when Griffiths, in a low voice, said his piece: "I'm one vote on a five-person board. I voted for this commitment and I intend to keep it. You all are not obligated to do that. I respect the majority's wishes. I respect," pausing, "most of you." Christina McPherson, the district's director of assessment, addressed the item on behalf of affected school administrators during the public comment portion of the meeting. "In spite of the frequent change of leadership that has occurred," she said, "school administrators have remained the one constant while maintaining the district's Arating," determined by the Florida Department of Education. "Please fulfill your commitment to us."They applied to select administrators MONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS By RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com MATHEWSONBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com

Golden D.M.D. Some cast doubt on lionfish dangerOne of the main solutions scientists came up with to rid invasive lionfish from Keys waters is to catch and eat the voracious, and many say, delicious fish. Countywide, so-called lionfish derbies have been held for the past three years, whereby divers and snorkelers caught and killed thousands of the fish, which are native to the Indian and Pacific oceans. At the same time, the venomous predators which can decimate marine life at the reef have turned up on plates in local restaurants and on sampling trays at lionfish tasting events. Those handling lionfish have to be careful of the venomous spikes found along their spines, which scientists say can inflict a bee sting-like wound. But once the spikes are removed and the fish is filleted, many say lionfish contain mild and tasty meat. But a story written by MSNBC this month suggests eating them out of existence may not be the wisest move, considering they are known carriers of a toxin that can make humans who eat them violently ill for months. The story cited a 2010 report from a U.S. Food and Drug Administration chemist who found ciguatera toxin in about 25 percent of the 200 fish she tested. People eating fish with the ciguatera toxin risk being poisoned and having symptoms including severe joint and muscle pain, vertigo, nausea and even a strange sensation where hot things feel cold and vice versa. These symptoms can last for months, according to an article written in the July edition of the Annals of Emergency Medicine. The poison originally spreads from one fish to another by herbivorous fish that eat the dinoflagellates off reefs that produce the toxin. When those fish are eaten by predators, the toxin travels up the marine food chain, according to the AEM article. But scientists and tourism officials in the Keys say the concern is overblown, and the risk of being sickened with ciguatera pales in comparison to the damage lionfish are doing to native species. Nothing, other than man, seems interested or capable of killing them. Besides, the Keys are not a "hot spot" for ciguatera, despite the wide range of reef fish known to live here. Andy Newman, public relations manager with the Monroe County Tourist Development Council, was quick to point out this week that there have been no known cases of ciguatera poisoning in the Keys resulting from people eating lionfish here. Newman criticized the MSNBC article for not saying where the tested lionfish were taken from, and for using information from the FDAfrom 2010. "Why would you wait two years later?" Newman said. Kristen Livengood works with the environmental group Sanctuary Friends Foundation of the Florida Keys. It's hosted lionfish catching and eating events, and she said they should continue. Livengood said since about only 2 percent of worldwide ciguatera cases happen in the United States, eating lionfish here carries about the same risk as eating popular fish like grouper and snapper. Curtis Allen, an FDA spokesman, acknowledged that no lionfish tested by the agency were taken from Keys waters. The fish were caught in known "ciguatera zones" including the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands and the Flower Garden Banks in the Gulf of Mexico, Allen said. The Keys conservation group REEF has held three lionfish derbies since 2009. More than 6,000 lionfish were caught during the derbies, and most of those ended up being eaten by people. James Morris, an ecologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations Centers for Coastal Ocean Science, said it is telling that no reported illnesses have been reported by people eating that many fish.Report:Eating them might be harmfulBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comMARINE LIFESnook-harvest ban remainsAstate decision to keep Florida Keys snook harvests closed for another year likely will not draw much protest from local anglers. "This doesn't bother me a bit," fishing guide George Clark of Rodeo Charters in Key Largo said Friday. "We need these snook stocks to get back to where they were." The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission voted Thursday to extend a ban on harvesting snook in the Florida Keys, Florida Bay and Southwest Florida until September 2013 at the earliest. "If we have a bad winter this year, we will benefit from this caution," said FWC board member Kenneth Wright, who later was elected chairman by his colleagues. "If we don't have a bad winter, we will let all these breeding fish come through the slot," Wright said. "We'll really have done something good and we'll have protected some of these fish." FWC staff recommended to commissioners that a ban on harvesting snook in South Florida in place since the January 2010 cold snap killed untold numbers of the popular game fish could expire Aug. 31 with no harm to the snook population recovery. The daily one-fish limit of a legal-size snook would not harm the snook comeback, a staff report says. "Harvest has been prohibited for over two and a half years and extending the closure for one or two more years many not result in any great increase in stock size," the report says. Juvenile snook needed to replenish the population would be protected by the slot-size limit of 28 to 33 inches, according to staff. Commissioners, with one dissenting vote, decided to retain the harvest ban after consideration at the Palm Beach Gardens meeting. Catch-and-release fishing for snook is allowed during the closure. Astate survey indicates that perhaps 90 percent of fishers always release snook, anyway. "We've dealt with this situation for the last few years when there weren't many snook around," Clark said. "Personally, I'm just now starting to see numbers of the fish showing back up." Fishermen who want to bring dinner back to the dock can target populations of sea trout and redfish, which are showing a healthy rebound, the guide said. "There are a lot of other fish to keep." Snook, a hard-fighting fish that can be taken close to shore, has been off limits to commercial harvesters for decades. They are highly susceptible to temperature changes, and the Gulf of Mexico stock suffered heavily in the 2010 cold.FWC board goes against staff adviceOUR FISHERIES By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com

Feeling the loveFor more than 39 years I have called Marathon my home. It wasn't until recently, though, that I realized the amazing generosity of my friends, customers and neighbors. I am surprised and humbled by their kindness. After suffering a stroke in April, I was flown to Jackson Memorial Hospital and received treatment for a clot in my neck and brain. I was then a guest at Key West Health and Rehab for six weeks. I am now home and a patient of Fishermen's Hospital outpatient therapy. I need extensive physical, occupational and speech therapy. I am uninsured and the medical expenses are overwhelming. As a result of your generosity, however, I am able to continue my treatments with the hope and desire to return to work. Afundraiser hosted in my honor was a heartwarming experience. From my friends who visited my shop with words of support, to my fellow business owners who made donations and financial contributions, I am so grateful to everyone who was involved.Thank you to Stan Haines for arranging the benefit, the Greater Marathon Chamber of Commerce for integrating the benefit with an after-hours meeting, Dale Baker for his generous donation of a generator for the raffle and to Frank's Grill, the Key Colony Inn and Publix for food donations.Due to rain, Misery Loves Company did not have the opportunity to entertain all of us, but I hope I have the chance to attend an event to hear them play in the near future. Thanks to the media for posting announcements about the event. Thanks to my Town Square Mall neighbors. I will see everyone all soon. Finally, thank you to my employees Tricia and Philip, who have kept my business open and operating these past couple of months. Although I cannot acknowledge everyone by name in this letter, the kindness has not gone unnoticed or unappreciated. You are all in my heart, and I love you all. I look forward to having the opportunity to thank everyone personally when I return to work.

It wasn't beyond our nation's founders, however. The concept of religious pluralism (or the choice of no religion) is at the heart of the question and clearly expressed in the great seal they created.We've been looking directly at the concept of one nation under God since President Roosevelt and his secretary of the treasury, Henry Wallace, placed the powerful symbols of the U.S. seal on the back of our $1 bill in 1935.Ashort history of the 1935 events is found in letters from Wallace on the GreatSeal.com website: "I was struck by the fact that the reverse side of the great seal had never been used. Therefore I took the publication to President Roosevelt and suggested a coin be put out with the obverse and reverse sides of the seal." Wallace continued: "Roosevelt, as he looked at the colored reproduction of the seal, was first struck with the representation of the all-seeing eye, a Masonic representation of the great architect of the universe. Next he was impressed with the idea that the foundation for the new order of the ages had been laid in 1776 but that it would be completed only under the eye of the great architect. Roosevelt like myself was a 32nd degree Mason." President Roosevelt further suggested "that the seal be put on the dollar bill rather than a coin and took the matter up with the secretary of the treasury.... He brought it up in Cabinet meeting and asked James Farley [postmaster general and a Roman Catholic] if he thought the Catholics would have any objection to the all-seeing eye which he, as a Mason, looked on as a Masonic symbol of deity. Farley said there would be no objection."

EDITORIALOn superintendent, there's a problemLETTERS TO THE EDITORLook long termJuly 4 is upon us, and we are celebrating our 236th national birthday. We will pull together the shopping list, inventory the dolphin filets in the freezer (heaven forbid we have to buy fish for the fryer), wash the lawn chairs for the parade and fireworks, rake the lawn rocks, change the oil in the boat, put up the volleyball net and prepare for the celebration of this wonderful day. Instant gratification has its place, like this holiday, when we will eat a lot of hot dogs, fish sandwiches, potato salad and ice cream; engage in too many athletic events; and overindulge in any number of ways because it feels good and tastes good and is good. Now let's look at some analogous situations that will affect us for a day, a year, a generation or longer. The preparation of our county and city budgets will give us many opportunities for instant gratification. There are long lists of important buildings and services that citizens need and/or want now, not tomorrow, but now. One by one, these items will be considered, their shortand long-term value stacked up against the cost. Herein lies the rub. Governments and citizens have less money this year and we must not succumb to the instant gratification of saying yes to everything and taking on irresponsible levels of debt. Although this has happened on a national level, we have to resist the temptation to obligate future revenues unnecessarily. We can accomplish our goals and still sustain fiscal health. Let's reintroduce the quaint notion of saving for something before we buy it. A similar strategy would set a future goal, then take steps to get there over time, paying as you go. Both these courses of action are the antithesis of instant gratification. They require thoughtful, patient and prudent vision, followed by disciplined planning and execution. We can do this. But for now, for this holiday, I will yield to the pleasures of the moment and enjoy all the rewards that accompany it. Fire up the grill, put ice in the coolers, cook the ribs and beans, and don a smile, for this is hallowed time. Tomorrow we will take up the burdens of budgets. Meanwhile, have faith that our grandchildren will be much smarter than we are and life will continue to evolve as it should in concert with generations and technologies as yet unborn.Marilyn Tempest MarathonHow did the School Board not know Jara's term expires far past new one's start date?The Monroe County School Board's No. 1 charge is making sure our students are successful in the classroom. Alarge part of being successful is doing your homework. Perhaps the board could learn something from the students because it obviously didn't do its homework when going through the process of choosing a new superintendent. Thursday, the board chose Mark Porter, superintendent of South Washington County (Minn.) Schools, to replace Jesus Jara, who's filling out the four-year elected term of Randy Acevedo, ousted by then-Gov. Charlie Crist in 2009 following Acevedo's indictment for misconduct. Last Aug. 8, Gov. Rick Scott appointed Jara to replace the resigned Joe Burke, who had replaced Acevedo. In his official announcement, Scott wrote that Jara "succeeds Joseph Burke and is appointed for a term beginning Aug. 8, 2011, and ending Jan. 7, 2013." That's pretty clear. It's also pretty clear the board should have known when the term ends when it spelled out early in the hiring process that the new superintendent would start this coming Aug. 1 (this is the first time a Keys superintendent will be hired; it was an elected position until voters changed that in a 2010 referendum). Jara says if he doesn't have another job come Aug. 1, he isn't going anywhere and would stay until Jan. 7, 2013, if necessary. So what would happen with Porter? No one knows. Jara's made no secret that he's been looking for other jobs. He was a finalist for two other superintendent slots but this month was passed over for one and pulled his name out of the running for the other. This is the time of year when school districts hire their administrators. Classes are out and it gives new hires a chance to get acclimated in the run-up to the new school year. So each passing day, there are fewer administrator jobs available, meaning Jara's opportunities elsewhere are starting to dry up. And we believe him when he says that if he can't find something else, he's sticking around. Perhaps he's angling for a buyout, who knows. Even if he isn't, the School Board might very well be in the untenable position of having to pay Jara to go away -meaning it would be paying two superintendents' salaries, something it hardly can afford. With all of the problems the School District has gone through since the Acevedo era, you'd think the School Board would get this one thing the biggest thing right. There is no excuse not even that the dog ate the board's homework for being where we are today.

The incident, which happened almost two years ago, is at the center of a legal dispute among department leadership and a fired firefighter who earlier this month was decisively elected president of the local union chapter by his colleagues. That firefighter, Lt. John Hamburger, said one of the reasons he was let go was for asking for an investigation into the removal of the supplies. Fire Chief James Callahan maintains the incident had nothing to do with Hamburger's firing. He says leadership fired Hamburger for repeated insubordination. Hamburger is appealing his termination to an appointed magistrate on grounds that he and other active union members were unfairly targeted for discipline by Callahan and his battalion chiefs. No date for the hearing has been set. Hamburger, 30, was elected by 44 of the 66 union members who voted on June 12. The union is made up of 96 members of the county's 110 paid firefighters. Up until this week, fire department leadership has been vague in describing the events of Aug. 12, 2010. An e-mailed explanation provided to The Reporter on Monday by Gary Boswell, deputy chief of operations, raised more questions that so far have gone unanswered by Callahan, the battalion chiefs and the county medical director, Dr. Sandra Schwemmer. The most conspicuous question that no one in authority will answer specifically about that day is why an offduty flight medic for the county's TraumaStar helicopter ambulance, Lt. Andrea Sutherland, would respond to a nonemergency that was never called into 911 dispatchers to treat a patient using county medical supplies.Falsities'Sutherland said she has been advised by her attorney, Richard Malafy, not to answer any questions about that day. Malafy said he was hired to explore "the appropriate courses of action against those who continue to perpetuate these falsities." Boswell said he could not say what type of supplies Sutherland took, nor the reason Sutherland left the Florida Keys Marathon Airport hangar with the them, because doing so would violate the medical privacy of the person she intended to treat. Boswell would only say Sutherland "became aware of a medical need of a local volunteer firefighter" who lives in Marathon. He said Sutherland determined the firefighter's "need did not warrant the utilization of 911, and that person could receive assistance inhome." Boswell said Sutherland "required a few basic medical supplies" to "render the necessary assistance." According to state law, paramedics and emergency medical technicians can only perform their services under the supervision of a medical director while on duty, said Ashley Carr, deputy press secretary of the state Department of Health. "If they are off duty, they should not administer any medical aid at all," Carr said. An on-duty TraumaStar crewmember reported the incident to a battalion chief, Boswell said. He did not name the battalion chief. Removal admitted"The battalion chief contacted [Sutherland], who admitted taking the supplies, explained the situation, and since it involved a potential incidence of patient care, was referred to the medical director for consultation," Boswell said in an e-mail. Medical Director Schwemmer was contacted for her advice, Boswell said, and the treatment never happened and the supplies were returned. Boswell did not say what Schwemmer ad-vised, nor if she was contacted before or after the supplies left the building. "I believe the off-duty flight medic acted with the best of intentions, in an effort to provide service to a local citizen," Boswell said. He also said the off-duty firefighter was not treated for alcohol intoxication. "Beyond that, I cannot provide any additional patient condition information, because this borders on [Health Insurance Port-ability and Accountability Act] protected health information," Boswell wrote. When contacted by phone for her recollection of the incident for a June 15 story, Schwemmer said she "did not have independent recall" about handling the case. She has since not responded to repeated e-mails and a phone call seeking further explanation. Hamburger, and two other firefighters who agreed to speak on condition of anonymity, said the supplies taken were intravenous saline bags. Administering IVdrugs is considered advanced life support by departmental policy.

Delgado was arrested Monday. On Wednesday, a Miami federal magistrate denied Delgado's request for bond, citing a prosecutor's fear that he could flee to Cuba after noting the defendant owns four residential properties in Miami-Dade and Monroe counties. They Keys property is a mobile home in Key Largo. The Monroe County Property Appraiser's Office doesn't have a record of a Lazaro Delgado owning a Keys home, but Assistant U.S. Attorney Dan Bernstein implied he does have one but in someone else's name. As a freed felon, Delgado's reinvention as a Medicare entrepreneur is nothing new. According to authorities, numerous criminals convicted of drug trafficking and other offenses routinely join Miami's Medicare rackets because it's seen as less risky and more profitable. Medicare officials say the federal program, notorious for lax oversight, regularly conducts criminal background checks on health-care operators and has disqualified many felons as a result.But Delgado, 46, slipped through the system because his two Medicare-licensed businesses, Loyal Home Health and Loving Nursing, both of Miami-Dade, were not registered in his name.They were registered under the names of "straw" owners who did not control the businesses, according to Health and Human Services' Office of Inspector General, which led the investigation. One straw owner was eventually caught by investigators and prosecuted for health-care fraud, then began cooperating with the U.S. attorney's office.Delgado's defense attorney, Anthony Genova, tried to convince Magistrate Judge Alicia Otazo-Reyes that his client should be granted bond because billing records show he was not responsible for any fraudulent Medicare claims."The [evidence] against my client is the spoken word of convicted felons," Genova said. "There is no proof he received one single penny in this case."The defense lawyer also said Delgado, who is married with children and has lived in southwest Miami-Dade for years, has strong ties to the community. His wife is a mortgage broker. But the magistrate was not swayed and denied the request for bail. In late 1998, Delgado was convicted for his role as the financial backer in a drugtrafficking ring that traded guns for cocaine, according to court records. Delgado was sentenced to nine years after a federal judge found at his sentencing that he also obstructed justice. With good behavior, he was released in 2006, but remained on probation for another four years.By October 2010, Delgado was involved in Medicare scams, said Bernstein, the prosecutor.He argued for Delgado's detention before trial, saying the defendant faces between 11 and 14 years in prison if convicted on the new offenses as well as a separate charge for mortgage fraud.Bernstein said Delgado lied on a pre-trial services report that he has been making $6,000 a month as a horse trainer.Judge denies suspect bond in Medicare caseBy JAY WEAVERjweaver@miamiherald.comIN THE COURTS The Marathon Business and Professional Women's Club took a moment this month to honor members who have been with the organization for more than 25 years.Among them are (from left) C.M.Bishop,Sally Mishmash and Roberta Surina.Bonnie Sanderson, JoAnn Orr and Lorene Freeman also were honored.The club meets the first Thursday of each month at 5:30 p.m.at the Marathon Yacht Club.Contact Sarah Cizmas at saciz mas@gmail.com Hotels thrive in MayHoteliers throughout South Florida reported a strong May, according to a recent report. The report from Smith Travel Research shows that hotel occupancy, rates and revenue in Monroe, MiamiDade and Broward counties increased compared to May of 2011. Monroe (the Florida Keys) saw a 4.4 percent jump in occupancy to 78.6 percent, with room rates increasing almost 5 percent to $200.54. Revenue per available room jumped 9.4 percent to $157.62. Miami-Dade hotels reported occupancy of nearly 74 percent, a 1 percent increase compared to a year earlier. Average daily rates were up 4.8 percent to more than $152 and revenue per available room jumped almost 6 percent to $112.50. In Broward, occupancy increased less than 1 percent to 68.2 percent in May. Rates ticked up 4.3 percent to nearly $111 and per-room revenue increased almost 5 percent to $75.60.Occupancy, average rates both increaseBy HANNAH SAMPSONhsampson@MiamiHerald.comTOURISMCourt: Spanish-language product warnings not neededFlorida residents who don't read in English may be out of luck when it comes to product warnings. Despite the region's high percentage of households where Spanish or Creole is the preferred language, manufacturers do not have to provide multilingual safety warnings, according to a recent ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals. The case stems from a 2009 incident when Lilybet Farias bought two propane heaters from Home Depot during a rare cold spell in Miami. Farias left one of the heaters on while she went to sleep. Afire ensued and caused $300,000 in damages. Farias, a Cuban native, said she could not read English well enough to understand the warnings included in the packaging and did not understand that the heaters were intended only for outdoor use. Farias sued manufacturers Mr. Heater and Enerco and distributor Home Depot, contending that they should have provided Spanish instructions on heaters sold in MiamiDade County. In November 2010, the U.S. District Court ruled that manufacturers and distributors are not obligated to provide warnings in languages other than English. The warnings included in the heaters'packaging were adequate, the court said, and suggested that Farias exhibited "willful ignorance" in assembling the products without understanding the instructions. Last week, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the earlier ruling, noting that even though Farias does not speak English, the pictures on the instructions were perfectly clear. The ruling also applies to assembly instructions and manuals. "The court got it right," defense attorney Gregory Cesarano said. "It recognized that there was no general obligation in Florida for product manufacturers to warn their consumers in Spanish."Woman claimedno understandingBy LUC COHENlcohen@MiamiHerald.comCONSUMERS

Keys'Millerat Olympic TrialsCoral Shores High School swim coach Mhyria Miller finished in the middle of the field Tuesday during her first breaststroke event at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials. Miller, 25, swam a time of 1 minute, 11.99 seconds in the 100-meter breaststroke at the Olympic Trials in Omaha, Neb. That placed Miller 74th, 5.66 seconds off the best time in the preliminary heats, among a field of more than 150 women in the event. She will not advance in the 100. Rebecca Soni, the defending Olympic gold medalist in the 100 breast, had the fastest time heading into the event finals. Only the top two swimmers advance. Miller was scheduled to compete Friday in her second event, the 200-meter breaststroke, which Miller considers her strongest event. Results were pending at press time. Atwo-event state champion for Coral Shores, Miller earned a swimming scholarship to the University of Georgia, where she earned All-Southeastern Conference honors in the breaststroke. She is no stranger to the U.S. Olympic Trials, having qualified to compete in the 2004 and 2008.

Pitching and defensive problems cost Marathon in a 10-run rally by the Upper Keys in the top of the first inning. In the second inning, the Upper Keys offense erupted with three deep RBI doubles by hitters Kyle Richards, Dillon Walters and Bryce Bynum to make it 18-0 heading into the third inning. Upper Keys head coach Jason Richards emptied the bench and slowed his team's offense for the final two innings. Upper Keys starter Nick DiMaggio got the pitching win after striking out the Marathon side in the bottom of the first. Noel Quezada and others threw in relief. Casey Hamilton lashed a single for Marathon in the second inning as his team loaded the bases. But all three runners were stranded on the bases. Catcher Jayden Bruland played well behind the plate for Marathon while Maleek Cole anchored third for the Middle Keys all-star club. Marathon pitchers included Drake Daniels, Doris Campanioni and Hamilton. Kendall edged Homestead, 5-4, in the other South Pool first-round game Wednesday at Key Largo Community Park. Both Florida Keys teams were scheduled to play Friday in round-robin tournament play. Marathon (0-1) faced Homestead (0-1), while the Upper Keys (1-0) took on Doral (0-0). Results were pending at press time. Marathon plays at 10 a.m. today against Kendall, then finishes its round-robin against Doral at 12:15 p.m. Sunday. The Upper Keys plays Kendall at 11:45 a.m. Sunday before a 7:15 p.m. Monday game against Homestead. The South Pool winner plays the North Pool runnerup at 7 p.m. Thursday in Key Largo.

Put his head down and go. Jim Lupino, 59, a partner in Hershoff, Lupino & Yagel on Plantation Key, did just that to finish his first and probably last Ironman Triathlon on June 24. Added in 2003, the Ironman Coeur d'Alene is one of 28 ironman triathlons in the world that allows serious athletes to qualify for the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii. The competition consists of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mil bike ride and a 26.2-mile run. Three days before the event, Lupino, his wife Diane and daughter Maddie traveled to the Idaho town nestled in the hills edged by the Coeur d'Alene National Forest. What he saw was daunting. After driving the bike course, his first thought was: "I didn't think I could do it." The bike course was "frightening," he said. It wasn't so much the 2,188-foot elevation that was worrisome. It was "several climbs of two and three miles at approximately 6 percent grades." On top of that, the water was extremely cold at 57 degrees, compared to a balmy 82 degrees in his home waters off Key Largo. What made him do it anyway? "I put too much time and effort in it to quit," he said. "And my daughter was out there; I wanted to show her that anything you set your mind to, you can accomplish." While he'd been training since the fall, his really serious "time and effort" kicked off in December. It consisted of up to two hours every weeknight and four to seven hours each day, every weekend. At 7 a.m. June 24, it was time for Lupino to put that training and determination to the test. He set off on the first leg of the triathlon, the swim, in frigid Coeur d'Alene Lake with a short beach run between each of the two laps. It was a rough start. "I thought I might die at the first turn in the swim," he recalled. "Twenty-eight hundred people trying to go around the buoy at the same time, getting kicked and punched and swum over." His mantra? "You just keep going," he said. Next up was the bike ride. "Actually, I thought going out there that I would have an easier time with the bike," Lupino said, "but I never imagined the hills that we faced. I've never seen anything like it in terms of competing." Again, it was his family that kept him going. Coming down to the finish line of the bike portion of the race, he spotted his family on the sidelines. "Seeing my wife and child gave me the enthusiasm to keep going," Lupino said. Still ahead was the marathon. At that point, he had been in continuous motion for about more than nine hours. He crossed the finish line in 15 hours, 27 minutes, placing 17th in his age group (out of 56) and 1,854th overall out of about 2,800 contestants. This was comfortably ahead of the 17-hour time limit imposed by Ironman rules. And while he was pleased with his time, Lupino figured he could have shaved off about 20 minutes. Concerned about dehydration, he had loaded up on liquids before the race and his regular stops at rest stations slowed him down. Lupino is OK with that. He can now cross the Ironman Triathlon off his bucket list. He credits his nephews Jody Lawrence, 47, of Las Vegas; and Teig Lawrence, 44, of Miami Beach with encouraging him to sign up for the race. Both men also competed and finished. He and wife Diane also are quick to give credit to Ironman coach Frank Carino and the South Florida Hammerheads training team. "Throughout this experience, we repeatedly heard the suggestion to always be positive, grateful you're here. Smile, and thank the volunteers and fans along the way. This focuses on the positive state of mind, which will help you get through the most difficult times. "At the finish line, we couldn't believe the smiles, cartwheels and sheer joy on the faces of the finishers who had just finished 140.6 miles," she said.Lupino finds challenge more than he knewBy JACKIE HARDERKeynoter ContributorUPPER KEYS L.A.Times crossword puzzle WHEN WORLDS COLLIDEŽSolution in the classifieds ACROSS 1Spruce (up) 6Employees with many perks? 1445 holder 20Mother-of-pearl 21Intimate 22Really well-off 23You __ big trouble, mister!Ž 24View from much of the Oregon coast?26Kid-friendly,in a way28Country singer who was an 8-year-old Star SearchŽ contestant 29Yank 30Delight at the comedy club 31Site of the first cover-up? 32Rise:Abbr.34He appointed Sandra to the Supreme Court36What Ceylon,Siam and Upper Volta are nowadays? 41Racetrack sounds 45Comic Amsterdam 46Board-certified talk show host 47Attribute 48Pop-up ads,e.g. 51List of The Dukes films? 55Do impressions of 56Wrong582002 Streisand album59Latin law60Bohemian RhapsodyŽ addressee62Browning and more66Carp cousins 68Double eagle in a PGA event? 76Tall,dark and handsome 77Actress Zellweger 78Sheet of stamps 79Subside 82Petal pickers word 84It follows that ...Ž 88With it 89Battleship game setting? 94Spicy stews 96Fun,Fun,FunŽcar 97Savvy about 98Possessive in many church names 99Triangular soil deposits101Hank Aarons 715th home run,at the time?106Character in Scooby-DooŽ? 108__ Domini 109Samoas largest city110The Cosby ShowŽson113U.K.award 114Oro y __:Montanas motto 117Alaskas __ Sound 119Pneumatic tube in a drive-thru? 123Intertwines yarn 124Later,dudeŽ 125High standing 126Star-crossdŽlover127Battle of Thermopylae victor,480 B.C.128Utter failure 129Trim DOWN 1Trapped 2Float site 3Lipton product 4Facebook request 5Repel,with offŽ6Katnisss weapon in The Hunger GamesŽ7Lawless state 8Hang up the spikes 9Paparazzis target 10Ticked off 11Lemon aids? 12Singer DiFranco 13Scrapes 14The 1973 MetsYa Gotta Believe!,Že.g. 15Hoovers wife 16Humbly apologizes 17Pulitzer-winning biographer Leon 18__ cava 19Vortex 25Barbarian 27Buon __Ž:Italian greeting 33Explosive trial 34Flattened 35Decisions, decisions ...Ž 37Homer,for one 38Oral health org. 39__ and stop me!Ž 40Horror star Chaney 42London lockup 43Bring aboard44Runner down under?48OverheadŽ engine parts 49Moonfish 50It might be ccd 51Cord under a tarp 52Abrupt53Word with gas or oil54Dry skin tip-off 57More agile 61Dough-dispensing convenience,briefly 63Overcharge,say 64Turf __:common football injury 65Important star 67Gas additive brand 69Like some kindergarten programs 70Plenty,in verse 71Menlo Park middle name 72Clutter-free 73Iolani Palace site 74Condo,e.g. 75Set components 79Cornerstone abbr. 80Nixon confidant Rebozo 81Judges setting 83Disdain 85Haggard 86The lord in The Lord of the RingsŽ 87Stare at rudely 90Like many faithful adherents 91Genetic material 92Off-rd.ride93One who isnt with us95Movie props? 98Hail Marys,often 100Future ferns 101Strengthened,with upŽ 102Floating 103Cigar brand that comes in grape and peach flavors 104Violent protester 105Ted of CSIŽ 107Game of ThronesŽ airer 110Chocolate caramel bar 111Parcheesi destination 112Rocket scientist, e.g.:Abbr. 114Frat letters 115Jazzy Horne 116Fivers 118Cajun staple120Topeka-to-Peoria dir.121Ew,I didnt need that mental picture!Ž 122Plunk preceder "WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE"Solution in the July 4 Keynoter Crossword solutionSolution to the June 27 puzzle.

LivingHow to achieve pancake perfectionThere's a reason for that phrase "selling like hot cakes." On a lazy Sunday morning, the fragrant flapjack makes a perfect vehicle for maple syrup, fruit compotes, yogurt, sliced berries or a simple dusting of powdered sugar. But why not up your game? The new wave pancakes envisioned by awardwinning food writers Heidi Swanson and Betty Rosbottom mix things up with multigrains, lemon-ricotta fillings, homemade syrups and fabulous riffs on a classic. It's enough to make you get up early. "Pancakes," Rosbottom says, simply, "are a universal favorite." The Krusteaz and Bisquick crowd may think those mixes are easier routes to pancake heaven, but the reality is making flapjacks from scratch takes barely more time than a mix and it gives you the freedom to tweak flavors to your heart's content. For Swanson, a Los Gatos, Calif., native whose "Super Natural Every Day" (Ten Speed Press, $23, 250 pages) cookbook won a James Beard award last month, it's a matter of making that carb load more healthful by using a mixture of oat flour, rye flour and whole wheat pastry flour instead of the generic white stuff. (You'll find those flours in the bulk bins at Whole Foods and other markets.) "Oat flour is incredibly fragrant," she says. "Rye flour brings a bit of spicy depth, and whole wheat pastry flour is perfect for pancakes, muffins and quick breads."Whole wheat pastry flour makes for a tender, light crumb, she says. As for the convenience of a mix, Swanson has an answer for that, too."If you premix the dry ingredients a day before, a week before and keep it in a jar," the food blogger says, "you're just a couple wet ingredients and a few minutes away from a great homemade pancake batter weekdays, weekends, either way." And while we've all added chocolate chips or blueberries to our pancakes, Swanson suggests trying more creative ways to enhance flavor and texture by stirring in lemon zest and poppy seeds, for example, or a splash of vanilla and chopped strawberries. Rosbottom adds a Thanks-giving pie's worth of spices to hers. Creativity can even be found in the concept. At St. Michael's Alley in Palo Alto, Calif., for example, they mix both bananas and blueberries into the batter and call the delectable result Blue Monkey Pancakes. Homemade toppings and syrups are wonderful ways to add seasonal twists. At this time of year, Swanson tops her hot cakes with a deeply purple, blackberry-maple compote, or roasts strawberries with maple syrup, olive oil and a splash of port wine for a topping that's "outrageously delicious." Rosbottom tops her spiced pancakes with maple-butter in the fall, and her perfect-forspring lemon-ricotta hot cakes with homemade blueberry syrup or poached apricots and Greek yogurt. If Rosbottom's name looks familiar, it's probably because the Massachusetts-based writer has penned so many food stories for Bon Appetit magazine over the years. Her newest cookbook, the irresistible "Sunday Brunch" (Chronicle Books, $19.95, 120 pages), touts the idea that brunch can go in many culinary directions, from baked sweets to savory treats. But Rosbottom is the first to admit to a soft spot for pancakes, perhaps because she's made them with her grandchildren since they were old enough to clamber on a kitchen stool and don an apron. But it's not just her grandchildren who are crazy about the lemon-ricotta pancakes. Rosbottom sent advance copies of the new book to friends, family and her small army of recipe testers, as a thank you. Without fail, the one recipe everyone singles out is that one.The beauty of pancake recipes, she says, is that they're templates. So consider the savory possibilities of Rosbottom's spiced pancakes.Try going beyond basic flapjack mixesMcClatchy-TribuneTHE BREAKFAST TABLE Photo courtesy McCLATCHY-TRIBUNEOn a lazy Sunday morning,the fragrant flapjack makes a perfect vehicle for maple syrup,fruit compotes,yogurt, sliced berries or a simple dusting of powdered sugar.

Mostly shaping clay by hand, Hoppough has combined mural forms with ceramics to create threedimensional pieces striking in color and shaped surfaces. He uses a variety of firing techniques, including raku, woodfire and stoneware. For more about Hoppough and his work, visit www.Steve Hoppough.com For photography aficionados, its important to know that van Rensburg picked up his first camera at age 10 (his father was a professional photographer). After helping on photo shoots for eight years, the young stylist started doing his own work, specializing in lifestyle and resort photography. Hes taken up more organic themes in his work, which include nature photography along with the challenges of architectural space and shapes. His studies of the play of light „ some shots taken from a hovering helicopter over the Everglades, bays and inlets „ are stunners.

Best viewing is on both sides of northbound Overseas Highway from mile marker 98 to mile marker 100. Traffic on U.S 1 will be diverted from 9 a.m. to noon, converting southbound U.S. 1 to two-way traffic during the parade.

The parade ends at Waldorf Plaza, mile marker 100 oceanside, where parade judges will give out awards to best floats in several categories, including best business entry, most original and best theme (the parade theme is America: Yesterday, Today & ForeverŽ). Following the parade, the chamber and Reporter host a picnic from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Nelson Center. Activities include face painting, hulahoop contest, potato sack races, watermelon seed-spitting contest and a traditional hot-dog eating competition. There will also be tag-team runs in snorkel gear, racing from one shallow water kiddie pool to another. For Key Largos fireworks extravaganza, the best seating is at mile marker 103, where Sundowners and Senior Frijoles restaurants, the Caribbean Club and the Marriott Key Largo Bay Resort provide special accommodations and menus. Reservations are suggested.

But while you occasionally hear of an expensive scotch, tequila or cognac dinner at a nice restaurant, you rarely hear of people hosting informal tastings at home. Given the growing popularity of spirits, I think its high time for enthusiasts to consider hosting a tasting party. Theres no spitting at a spirits tasting (more about that in a minute), so theyre much more raucous affairs than wine tastings. At the wine school where I teach, its almost always the same: My students look at the flights of liquors before them and their eyes widen, but by the end of the second round, the sommelier in the next classroom knocks on the door and asks us to settle down. Fun, yes, but heres a major geek alert: An undertaking like this is for people who have been getting deeper and deeper into the world of spirits and cocktails. Maybe youve got a growing collection of bitters and foreign bottles, and have started making special cocktails at home. If this describes you I can assure you there is no better way to ramp up your knowledge than a comparative tasting.My most recent rum tasting was a great example. Over the past few years I have collected rums of varying ages, styles and geographic locations. I was interested in how aging affected different rums, so I put together several rounds of tastings, or flights, based on age. Four friends and I tasted from youngest to oldest, taking our time, writing notes and discussing the rums after each flight.In the end, we came away with a better understanding of how different rums age and how it affects tastes. More important, we learned our own preferences.There are several key differences between a spirits tasting and a wine tasting. The first is how one actually tastes.Unlike at a wine event, where you vigorously swirl the liquid in your glass to release aromas and open upŽ the wine, you dont want to agitate spirits so much. If you vigorously swirl a 100-proof rum or bourbon, all youre going to get is a face full of alcohol.Instead, gently twirl the glass, allowing the liquor to coat its sides. For me, the ideal glass for whiskey or rum is a nosing glass thats bulb-shaped and tapers to a narrow rim. Next, its important to begin with a tiny sip that clears the palate. Follow up with a larger sip that coats the mouth. As previously mentioned, this is key: Dont spit. The reason: The finish is so important. Fine spirits should have a long, pleasant, lingering finish, not a hot, kerosene-like burn. Jason Wilson is the author of Boozehound: On the Trail of the Rare,the Obscure, and the Overrated in Spirits(Ten Speed, 2010). The Washington Post News Service distributed this.Theyre not even close to wine eventsSPIRITS Reality meets reefalityon June 14Aportion of the continental United Statesonly living coral reef is to be the stage for divers and snorkelers portraying reefality showŽ personalities during the annual Lower Keys Underwater Music Festival. Set for July 14, the quirky underwater concert takes place at Looe Key Reef, an area of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary about six miles south of Big Pine Key. The 2012 festival offers an offbeat takeoff on popular television reality shows with participants costumed as contestants and judges from Underwater Idol,Ž Dancing with the StarfishŽ and Subsea Survivor.Ž Those attending might spot former IdolŽ judge Simon CoralŽ and current judge J. Lo TideŽ or previous SurvivorŽ winner Richard Hatchery.ŽSet for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the marine musical event is staged by Keys radio station US1 Radio 104.1-FM. The music is broadcast underwater via Lubell Laboratory speakers suspended beneath boats positioned above the reef.The concerts playlist typically ranges from humpback whale recordings to ocean-themed songs such as Jimmy Buffetts Fins,Ž Donovans AtlantisŽ and the BeatlesOctopuss Garden.Ž Participants might even catch the would-be reefality starsŽ tooting their own horns „ pretending to play underwater musical instruments like a trom-bonefish and clambourine sculpted by Florida Keys artist August Powers. Divers and snorkelers interested in participating can reserve space on boats run by Lower Keys dive operators or launch their own boats from public ramps and marinas in the area.Underwater concert back at Looe KeyLOWER KEYS The grounds of the Casa Marina on Reynolds Street in Key West take on a whole new feel on the Fourth of July.Here, some celebrants capture a moment.Four flights of rum to tasteIm not going to offer tasting notes; thats for you and your friends. Instead, here are a few facts on production and origin.Flight 1The two whiteŽ rums selected are actually both lightly aged, then charcoalfiltered to remove the brown barrel color. € El Dorado, 3 year old. ($17). Demerara rum from Guyana that has become a bartender favorite for rum cocktails. € Banks 5 Island ($28). Ablend of 20 or more rums from Trinidad, Jamaica, Barbados and Guyana; contains bit of Batavia arrack, a wild rum from the island of Java made from fermented red rice.Flight 2These two rums hail from French-speaking islands and are medium aged.€ Rhum Clement V.S.O.P. ($42). Arhum agricole from Martinique distilled from fresh-pressed sugar cane juice rather than molasses, as are most other rums.€ Rhum Barbancourt, 8 year old ($22). Classic rum from Haiti, also made from fresh pressed sugar cane juice.Flight 3These two rums approach late middle age. Consider the effect that more than a decade of barrel contact has on the spirit. € El Dorado, 12 year old ($26). The older brother of the 3 year old. See what nine more years of aging in whiskey barrels does to this Guyanese favorite.€ Appleton Estate, 12 year old ($35). From the famed Jamaican distiller, aged in used Jack Daniels barrels.Flight 4These rums push the top end of aging. Both are classics „ not just in the rum category, but among spirits in general. € Rhum Barbancourt Reserve, 15 year old ($37). Compare the difference in this Haitian rum with its eight-year-old little brother from Flight 2. € Flor de Casa Centenario, 18 year old ($42). This, from Nicaragua, might be Central Americas finest rum. The creativity is always on display during the Underwater Music Festival. By JASON WILSON By JASON WILSON

Call me to find out how. Want change? Make a you turn'Are you one of the 84 million Baby Boomers approaching retirement and suddenly find you need to jump-start your life in a new direction? The good news is you're not alone. "This is the time to turn it all around, to please yourself, to make your own choices and to create what you want," says Nancy Irwin. "All you need is a you-turn.'" Irwin is a Los Angelesbased psychologist who pushes that envelope in her book "You-Turn, Changing Direction at Midlife," which combines the stories of more than 40 people who have wanted to change their lives, and did. Irwin begins by setting out a series of questions the "YouTurners" need to ask, including "What are your strengths and limitations?" and "What is the worst possible outcome you can imagine?" She encourages "changers" to list their most important values, the moments in their lives that make them proud, even "what three adjectives would those closest to you use to describe you?" Change does not require fearlessness, but it does require courage, she says. And she reminds, "Without fear, there'd be no courage." "Late bloomers smell just as sweet as early or on-time bloomers," she says. "Trust your own bud to blossom in its own time." In today's changing economy, career paths also need to twist and turn. "Most skills are transferable," Irwin advises. And she notes that, "many people do know what they'd rather be doing but are simply afraid to make the change. Start by making a list of all the steps of action that would be required if you had the courage to proceed." Afraid to make that first contact call for change? Write a script first, she suggests. Irwin's suggestions might sound simplistic, but they combine the values and talents needed to "You-Turn" today. One of my favorite true stories in her book is by Jan Bartlett. She was a medical technologist for many years before entering TVand radio broadcasting. Then after 15 years in show business, the Screen Actors Guild went on strike and she found herself without work. "To make ends meet, I began working as an elementary school substitute teacher," she explains in the book. "I found myself drawn to early education because I wanted the chance to make a real difference in children's lives. ... I soon came to the eye-opening realization that substitute teaching to subsidize my movie and TV career wasn't enough. I decided, at age 50, to get my credentials and teach full time." Bartlett describes how she struggled to get these credentials and how she successfully began her new career. Irwin suggests creating your own mission statement. She tells readers to set shortterm goals, check your progress periodically and realize that, "It is human nature to always yearn for something, even if it is simply rest and reflection." Many who set up goals in their youth don't know how to function after these goals are achieved, she says "Great people keep expanding."Set goals, check progress and reflectMcClatchy-Tribune AGING Working moms: Have it all or want what you have?Amy Schultz Pearson is 31, married and has two young daughters. She just began training in anesthesiology and will be working 50 to 80 hours a week. Pearson has a message for Anne-Marie Slaughter, the former State Department policymaker who lamented in The Atlantic that her "have it all" approach to work and family didn't go so well: She's not surprised. The difference? Pearson is happy. She knows that even if having it all is a myth, she'll revert with pleasure to part-time work without guilt or regret. "I feel that while feminists of the previous generation may have told my generation that we could have it all,'we have observed their have it all'lives long enough to see through the well-meaning front," said Pearson, who chose to stay in her Midwest hometown for her medical training so relatives can help her and her husband, a teacher, with the kids. "We're not surprised when someone like Dr. Slaughter reneges, but maybe they are, and they feel they have let us down. It's no one's fault," she said. "It's the nature of the beast when trying to combat hundreds of years of inequity in a matter of decades." Slaughter, 53, returned to academia at Princeton after two years in Washington, away from her teen boys but with a husband at home and her tenure intact. Since her magazine story last week burst open the debate on the difficulties for working mothers, she has heard from hundreds of women, most of whom were grateful that such a high-flying career juggler has spoken up about the need for more flexibility on the job. One was a policewoman. Another a social worker. There was a Nobel laureate, and women who were the first in their families to graduate from college. "They're saying, Thank you, I've been looking for honest counsel and haven't been able to find it,'" Slaughter said. Consider Ana Homayoun, 33, in San Francisco, among the honest. She works as an education counselor and career trainer for high school and college girls. The toll on their lives gets lost in the have-it-all debate about career and family, she said. "I talk to them about this issue all the time," Homayoun said. "It's this message that you can and should be able to have it all, all the time, and for a lot of them that seems to be polarizing and shame-inducing because they're really anxious about getting into the real world, and they can't figure out in their own head how they're supposed to make it all work."Don't waitFor many, she said, waiting until they're Slaughter's age and at her elite level is too late. "The planning what they want out of their lives needs to start in high school, college, to avoid reacting to a bad situation later," Homayoun said. "Alot of my friends in their 30s are leaving corporate high-powered tracks, not because they lack ambition or talent but because it doesn't seem feasible or workable for the entire arc of their lives." Is having it all in reasonable balance doable while more mothers in the U.S. wait out reforms that would make their lives better? Things like flexible hours, working from home or working part-time while raising kids and keeping careers on track? Is having it all worth having until then?A fantasy'"If you are defining it as living to your fullest potential in your field while also being present, both physically and emotionally, for your family at any time, of course it's a fantasy," said Meredith Persily Lamel, a professor in the business school at American University in Washington, D.C. Persily Lamel, 40, is a graduate of a Top 5 MBA program (the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business) and also coaches high-achieving professional moms. In her 30s, she took a 25 percent pay cut to get off the road as a business consultant for a large, publicly traded firm because of an intense travel schedule when she wanted to get pregnant. "All of the women I studied with continue working. Most of us who chose to raise a family have had major career changes since we graduated. We all moved to a more flexible work environment (entrepreneurship, contract work, academia). The men on the other hand haven't made the same shifts," she said.Flexibility is main way to balanceBy LEANNE ITALIEAssociated Press LIFESTYLE Photo courtesy ASSOCIATED PRESSThis undated image released by Princeton University shows former State Department official Anne-Marie Slaughter.In an article for The Atlantic magazine, Slaughter describes her struggles balancing a high-powered career with raising her two sons. 21070 5th Ave. E.
