Ron Saunders of Key West, a Democrat who's been House minority leader the past two years. Senate District 39, a heavily Democratic district encompassing all of Monroe County and portions of Collier but anchored in Miami-Dade, will pit Saunders against Rep. Dwight Bullard (D-Miami), the son of Larcenia and Edward Bullard, who both represented voters in the region since 1992. Rounding out the Democratic field is former state Rep. James Bush III, John "J.J." Johnson and selfdescribed property rights advocate Sal Gutierrez, a former Key Largo resident who has run as a Republican in previous races. The winner of the Aug. 14 primary will face Republican hopeful Scott Hopes, a health-care CEO, lobbyist and Republican executive committeeman. He faces long odds in a district that traditionally votes Democratic and where, in 2008, Barack Obama won more than 70 percent of the vote. It's a sprawling district of disparate needs, running from tourist-dependent Key West through a Miami-Dade corridor that includes Miami International Airport and Jackson Memorial Hospital and into the agricultural regions of Immokalee, LaBelle and Clewiston. In the Miami-Dade part of the district, Bullard, 35, has name recognition from serving in the House, and from his mother and father's time in politics. His mother, Larcenia, has represented the Senate district though in slightly different geographic form since 2002. Before that, she spent eight years in the House. Dwight's father, Edward, represented House District 118 from 2000 to 2008. First elected in 2008, the younger Bullard, a teacher, spent the past few years pushing for changes in the way the state assesses student achievement, including unsuccessful attempts to revamp the Florida Compre-hensive Assessment Test. He has also spearheaded efforts to allow the children of undocumented immigrants, many of whom have spent most of their lives in the United States, to qualify for instate tuition and financial aid. "While a lot of politicians, especially Democrats, have tried to get things passed for the sake of getting things passed that were digestible by the other side, I really tried to tackle some really tough issues, some pointed issues," Bullard said. "The bulk of what we do as policymakers in the state of Florida is bipartisan," Bullard said. "I can manage the best of both worlds. I can raise awareness.

But a Key Largo man who relishes them might not be getting any: He was arrested Sunday after police say he threatened to rob a store at the same time he prepared and bought two wieners. Juan Baez, 55, wasn't charged with the robbery threat but was charged with public intoxication, trespassing and marijuana possession. The Monroe County Sheriff's Office says Baez entered the Tom Thumb convenience store at mile marker 98 a little before 10 p.m., ordered the clerk and customers to put their hands up, then demanded money and hot dogs. Not given either, he "went and prepared two hot dogs and paid for the items and left," according to a report written by Deputy Vaughn O'Keefe. Unbeknownst to Baez, the clerk had pushed a silent alarm, which brought O'Keefe to the store. By that time, Baez was gone, with the two purchased hot dogs but no store money. O'Keefe found Baez near the store and the suspect reportedly said he was joking about the robbery, but theHe buys two after saying it's a holdupKeynoter StaffKEY LARGOSee Hot dogs,2AFraud-related counts now nearly at 200Former vacation-rental agent John Williams will mark his 53rd birthday next week in custody at the Monroe County Island Detention Center, awaiting trial on nearly 200 fraudrelated counts. After his arrest last October, Williams has seen the number of charges grow to 198, an informal count earlier this week showed. Vacation clients were still contacting Sheriff's Office investigators in January to report that they apparently fell victim to a months-long scheme.

Friday, Jara had said that if he can't find another job, he'd stay until Jan. 7, 2013, the date many thought his governor-appointed term expires. However, state law says the term he's filling expires on Nov. 13. "I do have a call out to the governor. If that's what the statute says, I'm fine. I'm not refusing to leave. There's no hard feelings, but if it's November, it's November," Jara said. Last Thursday, the Monroe County School Board voted to hire Minn-esota educator Mark Porter to replace Jara. Negotiations have begun on a three-year contract. Jara says he plans to work with Porter until his final day with the district. That includes hiring new directors of ITand adult education.

Stuart Chase Barber, 28, and Gabriel Carlos Gonzalez, 35, were thrown into the water when their 18-foot flats skiff slammed into a bridge piling around 9:30 p.m., according to Officer Robert Dube, spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Afisherman near the scene made a 911 call that triggered a response by the U.S. Coast Guard, Monroe County Sheriff's Office and the FWC. Gonzalez was still alive when found in the water around 10:20 p.m. He was flown by rescue helicopter to Miami but died around 6 a.m. Monday at Ryder Trauma Center. Barber's body was recovered from the water around 11:20 p.m. Indications are that he likely died instantly in the violent crash. Barber was the listed owner of the boat, a 1999 Flats & Bay skiff powered by a 150-horsepower outboard engine. Gonzalez and Barber apparently were the only ones aboard. The boat was headed into the channel, between Boca Chica and Stock Island, from the oceanside when it struck the piling, according to the FWC. Additional details are pending further investigation. In November, two unrelated crashes during the Key West Super Boat World Championship killed a total of three racing crewmen. It ended a string of 16 years without a fatality at the Key West race. Two Miami-Dade men on a North Key Largo fishing trip were killed when their 17-foot flats boat hit the Card Sound Bridge, returning from the Atlantic Ocean around midnight last Aug. 12. Two other men survived the crash. This week's July 4 holiday made last weekend busier than usual on local waters, Dube said. If the weather holds, this coming Saturday and Sunday are expected to see lots of boating activity.Two killed when skiff slams bridgeON THE WATERBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comstudent in that classroom for quite some time." The most senior member of the field is Saunders. He was first elected to a Democrat-controlled House in 1986 and served eight years, including two as chairman of the House Appropriations Committee. He returned to the House in 2006. Saunders, a 57-year-old lawyer, said he plans to bring that budget and leadership experience to the Senate, predicting that the traditionally less-partisan upper chamber will give him more freedom to work with senior Republicans to get things done. "I think the Republicans respect my knowledge of the budget," Saunders said. "I think I can work well across the aisle on issues like job creation and funding for education, infrastructure, that type of thing." Saunders said he will campaign as a voice for change in the district, and downplayed the Bullard dynasty, noting some voters represented by one of the family members may not have been happy with their representation. "For people who are unhappy with the state of affairs, I'm the candidate of change that they may be looking for," Saunders said. Another former lawmaker making a bid to return is Bush. Now 57, he spent eight years in the House from 1992 to 2000 before returning in 2008 for another two-year stint. He stepped aside in 2010 while his wife Bernadine ran but lost to Rep. Cynthia Stafford. James Bush then lost to Oscar Braynon in a special election in 2011 for Senate District 33. Bush, a teacher, said he's maintained strong ties to the district. "I'm not coming back; I've been here all long," Bush said. "I haven't been in office of that type but I've been involved in the community and I understand the needs of District 39." When he was in the House, Bush's district was one of the poorest in the state. The current Senate district likewise includes many low-income voters for whom public education is a lifeline that needs be improved, he said. The area was hard hit by the housing crash, with foreclosures threatening and already tenuous local economy. Saunders has said he may have a chance because Bush and Bullard may split the vote in Miami-Dade County, allowing Saunders to win by carrying Monroe. The race is not only a Democrat affair. The winner of the August primary will face Hopes, 51. A1983 University of South Florida graduate, Hopes took a position as an administrator at Tampa General Hospital before going into the consulting arena, first at Ernst and Young and then on his own. Hopes said he jumped into the race in part because he did not want independent and Republican voters to be locked out of the election process in a closed Democratic primary. Beyond that, he said he would bring fresh perspective in a district that has traditionally been represented by MiamiDade senators. "I felt there were better options of candidates who could better represent the diversity of the district," Hopes said. Neither Johnson nor Gutierrez commented for this article.GOPcandidate waits in the wingsFrom Election,1A short-term rentals of private homes in the Upper Keys without the knowledge of the homeowners, detectives say. On June 12, Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia granted a continuance in the pending trial. Mark Kohl, a former state attorney serving as a defense counsel, requested the delay, citing Kohl's ongoing treatment for throat cancer. Radiation and chemotherapy treatments left the attorney "unable to work at all during the last 45 days," he said in a June 5 court filing. Completion of treatment and a period of recovery was expected to require a period of "several more weeks." Defense attorneys Nick Mulick and Kohl also repeated an earlier reason for trial delay: "The case is extremely complex.... The discovery documents number in the thousands of pages." Garcia moved the Williams case to the September court docket. In one of the most recent complaint filings, Jeffrey Booms of Colorado told detectives he paid $1,852 as the deposit for a January 2012 stay in a home advertised on an Internet vacationrental site as "Tropical Sunset and a White Sand Beach." On a trip to the Keys, Booms said he met a rental agent who identified himself as "Doug Collins." For booking more than six months in advance, the agent reportedly told Booms he qualified for a 20 percent discount on the normal $3,800 rental. Booms "thought everything was alright until December 2011 when his correspondence with [website operator] Resort Property Management went unanswered," a Sheriff's Office report says. "His wife went on the Internet and found the property they thought they had rented was involved in a fraud scheme involving John Williams." Adescription of "Doug Collins" matched Williams, the detective wrote, and Booms later picked Williams out of a photo lineup. In a similar case from late 2011, Keith Schuette of Maryland said he paid a $6,000 deposit for a May 2012 vacation rental from an Internet firm called Keys Dream Rentals. The site went inactive in November 2011, Schuette reported to lawmen. Corporations linked to Williams include Florida Keys Adventures, Keys Tropical Vacation, Keys Dream Realty and Resort Property Management. Williams also is accused of using false names Doug Collins, David Osbourne, Johnson Williams and Gary Delich among them when dealing with rental customers. When customers complained about rentals canceled days before their trip, Williams would claim a sudden sale of the property, or fault "Doug Collins" or another non-existent coworker for the error, records in the court file show. Charges against Williams include grand theft, fraud, computer crime and forgery. Williams once worked legally in the vacation-rental business but reportedly kept taking money for rentals after being fired by the homeowner for non-payment of rent and deposits. More complaints roll in From Williams,1A Every decision I make will impact his administration. Not that I have to, but I'm going to check with him," Jara said. Gov. Rick Scott appointed Jara last Aug. 8 to a term Scott said runs through Jan. 7, 2013. He replaced Joe Burke, who resigned last year to take the Lee County superintendent job. Burke had replaced then-Superintendent Randy Acevedo, who was removed from office after being indicted on misconduct charges in 2009. Acevedo was elected in 2008, but his legal woes led Keys residents to approve a referendum in 2010 making the superintendent's job a hired position. Jara is finishing out Acevedo's four-year term. Even while saying he won't stay past when Porter is officially installed in November, Jara said he's waiting for a call back from Scott's office to be sure the Jan. 7, 2013, date in his appointment letter is inaccurate. School Board Chairman John Dick said the board had discussed the possibility of an overlap in administrations months ago. "We already had our clarification. We discussed this at open meetings numerous times and our attorney gave us the opinion it goes to the November date," he said. Even though he will be sworn in on Nov. 20, Porter likely will start work on Aug. 1. Board member Andy Griffiths says Porter and Jara need to work together until Jara's final day. "If this transition doesn't go smooth as glass, he'd hurt his chance for future employment. Right now, I'd give him a glowing letter of recommendation," he said. Dick said the board considered notifying Scott's office of the incorrect end date of Jara's term but didn't because it was around the same time Keys governments were working to secure $50 million in state funding for sewer projects. "We didn't want to get into back and forth with his office publicly," Dick said. Scott and the state Cabinet finalized the grant at a May 8 meeting at Stanley Switlik Elementary School in Marathon. Jara issued an open letter to the public Monday. "While I'm not certain at this point what the future holds in store for me professionally, I'm confident it will be in service to others while making a difference in the lives of children," he wrote.Smooth transition hoped for Big day for dogs From Jara,1A clerk "did not take it as a joke." Neither did O'Keefe, who arrested Baez on the three misdemeanors. By the way, we're smack in the middle of hot dog season (Memorial Day to Labor Day), according to the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council. During that period, Americans consume around 7 billion hot dogs or 818 per second. Today, the council says, 150 million hot dogs enough to form a line from Washington, D.C., to Los Angeles five times over will be eaten. From Hot dogs,1A

Publication every Wed. and Sat. and now online at www.keysnet.com EXAMPLE D Navy plans louderjetsMILITARY Monroe County's advisory Environmental Impact Study Oversight Committee is a busy group. Barely a month after the U.S. Navy released a 2,000plus-page draft EIS to address future training off Key West, it published another voluminous report on future air operations at Naval Air Station Key West Friday. The nine-chapter report not counting another nine appendices and a noise study examines noise and other environmental impacts that new aircraft training could have on the Lower Keys. The fleet training EIS focuses on proposed increases in training in what's known as the Key West range complex, an openwater area surrounding the Southernmost City. It focuses on flight operations, gunnery exercises and air-to-air missile launches, among other things. Friday's air operations EIS centers on possible increases in take-offs and landings from the Navy's 4,700-acre Boca Chica Key airfield, and a changeover to newer models of aircraft. County Commissioner Kim Wigington lives in the affected area and is a member of the county EIS committee. She said she has two major concerns. "When I hear the interviews on the radio and the Navy representatives speaks about the EIS, they already have a predetermined conclusion that [there will be an increase in operations] and that the F-35 will fly at NAS Key West," she said. The F-35 is the military's proposed successor to the F18 Hornets and Super Hornets. There are three versions of the plane A, B and C for the Navy, U.S. Air Force and U.S. Marines. The problem, say Wigington and others, is that the Navy has little if any reliable data on what impact the F-35 could have. It's only in testing stages. "This EIS process is a federal requirement. It's supposed to analyze whether an action takes place or not based on the impact. So it's not the intent of the EIS process to enter into this with a predetermined conclusion," Wigington said. "If they haven't fully developed this aircraft ... and it hasn't been completed, is this premature to actually have a conclusion of the impact of the F-35?" According to the EIS, the Navy F-35C is scheduled to begin to replace the FA-18 Hornet "beginning in 2016 with the transition expected to be completed by 2029; however, the end date for the transition may shift depending on the Navy's procurement budget. The study says the Marine F-35B and F-35C are scheduled to begin to replace Marine Corps AV-8B and FA-18 aircraft between 2012 and 2023. The Air Force F-35Ais scheduled to begin replacing the F-16 in 2013 and be transitioned by 2017. The EIS addresses the following alternatives to possibilities of increased airfield operations: No action: Annual takeoffs and landings would continue to occur at a level similar to the present, or 47,500 "operations." No new aircraft would be introduced, and no facilities would be altered to support next-generation aircraft training operations. Alternative 1: Annual take-offs and landings would continue a level similar to now, about 47,500 annual operations. However, legacy aircraft would gradually transition to next-generation aircraft, and existing facilities would be altered to meet requirements for next generation aircraft. Alternative 2: Same as alternative one, but accommodating additional training at NAS Key West when other locations are unavailable. Additional operations would vary, but could total up to 4,500 additional annual take-offs and landings. Total annual take-offs and landings could be equal to about 52,000. Alternative 3: Same as Alternative 2, but with an approximately 10 percent increase in other annual airfield operations. The total annual operations could equal approximately 57,000. The county has 45 days to officially lodge questions and concerns with the Navy EIS, as it must do by July 10 for the fleet training study. The EIS is available to view at www.keywest eis.com The Navy will hold public meetings to review it on Aug. 1 at the DoubleTree Grand Tree Resort at 3990 S. Roosevelt, Key West; and Aug. 2 at the Tennessee Williams Theatre at Florida Keys Community College at 5901 College Road, Stock Island. Both meetings are from 5 to 8 p.m. and residents will be able to speak with project representatives "one-on-one and submit written or oral comments."It also says more flights likely for KeysBy RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com

KeysNet.com Keynoter 4A Wednesday,July 4,2012 Eagle checks into bird hospital on its ownDays before America's birthday, the national symbol made an expected visit to the Florida Keys Wild Bird Center in Tavernier. Ajuvenile bald eagle, likely less than a year old, flew into the Tavernier center Friday, apparently lured by the smell of food being doled out to resident turkey vultures by facility technician Dave Bingham. "Dave's mouth hit the floor in awe," Executive Director Joan Scholz said. "The bald eagle was extremely hungry and thin. It came to the perfect place to get help." The eagle was suffering from a genetic beak deformity that hinders its ability to eat. "The top part of the beak didn't align with the bottom," explained center rehabilitator Amanda Barber. "When that happens, the top part isn't being ground down so it keeps growing until it becomes overgrown." Bingham and Barber, joined by center volunteers, were able to capture the ailing bird about four hours after its arrival. Blood tests showed the eagle, probably a female, was suffering from low protein levels and needed care. Since bald eagles are highly protected under federal law, the Wild Bird Center contacted a specialized treatment facility near Miami and made the transfer less than 24 hours later. After a preliminary surgery by a veterinarian, it appears the eagle stands a good chance of eventually being released. "They said there's about an 80 percent chance that she'll be releasable," Barber said Tuesday. "That's really exciting news because I thought she would be a permanent resident somewhere." Specialists from the Louisiana State University veterinary school are expected to examine the bald eagle for more evaluation. The Florida Keys Wild Bird Center has cared for a few eagles in its history, Barber said. "It happens once in a while but we don't see that many of them," she said. "It's pretty random to have one just show up here." It's not the first time that a protected species has made its own way to a local animal-care facility. In March 2009, a young loggerhead sea turtle suffering from an infection and malnutrition was found in the boat basin behind the Turtle Hospital in Marathon. After two months of treatment, the turtle named Kincaid was healthy and gaining weight. More than 30 years ago, an offshore dolphin stranded not far from the Dolphin Research Center on Grassy Key. The population of bald eagles in Florida is growing, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said in a report this week. "Based on its 2011 aerial survey, the FWC estimates there are 1,457 active bald eagle nests in Florida," the report says, "nearly a 9 percent increase since 2008 when the state implemented a bald-eagle management plan." A1973 survey showed just 88 active bald eagle nests statewide when the population was devastated by pesticides that caused eagle eggs to weaken and break.Beak problem hinders its eating abilityUPPER KEYSAlleged boat thief nabbedAman accused of stealing a Marathon veterinarian's boat on June 16 was caught in Venice, near Sarasota, on Friday following what Venice police call a crime spree there a week earlier. Jon Nydam, 30, of Nokomis is in the Sarasota County Jail with no bond allowed, charged with carjacking, grand theft auto, burglary, grand theft and wearing a mask while committing an offense. Nydam had been sought by Monroe County law enforcement since June 21, when he was found near Little Torch Key on a stolen 1990 21-foot contender owned by Doug Mader. The boat was stolen from Mader's Big Pine Key home on June 16. Mader had put the word out about it on Facebook. On June 21, Kevin Freestone of TowBoatU.S. saw the vessel and texted Mader. Mader raced to the scene, arriving at the same time as deputies, while Freestone and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserv-ation Commission officers pursued from the water. Nydam got the boat to shore, then fled. In Venice, Nydam is accused of approaching a newspaper delivery driver around 1:30 a.m. June 8, ordering the driver away from the vehicle, and then driving off. The vehicle was later found in a wooded area in Nokomis. During the same time period, Venice police received reports of store burglaries and another stolen vehicle. Police say evidence and a surveillance video link Nydam to a burglary at St. Marks Thrift Shop, where jewelry was stolen on June 9. The stolen items were found in a vehicle believed to be stolen by Nydam in Venice. It was later found in Key West and recovered by Monroe County Sheriff's Office deputies working with Venice detectives. After allegedly stealing Mader's boat, he apparently went back to Venice and was found at a motel.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, on Friday, 28-year-old Bruce White "abruptly turned left into the path of" 36-year-old Carrie Tudor at 2:45 p.m. near mile marker 87 in Islamorada. Both drivers live in Islamorada. Tudor reportedly swerved her 2010 Chevrolet to avoid White's 1996 Chevrolet Lumina, but struck White's right front. White came to rest blocking a left-turn-only lane, while Tudor came to rest against a guardrail in the northbound shoulder of U.S. 1. Tudor was airlifted out. At 11:42 a.m. Saturday, 58-year-old Michael Ray Rogge of Tamarac in Broward County was airlifted to Ryder after running his 2001 Harley Davidson into the rear of a 2006 Dodge near mile marker 47.9. According to the FHP, 37year-old Yovany ValdezPorras was "stopped in the left inside lane with [his] turn signal on." Valdez-Porras told police he was "waiting for traffic to clear and make a left turn onto 1655 Overseas Highway." The report says witnesses stated Rogge was traveling south in the right outside lane and "proceeded to cross from the right lane into the left lane." Rogge struck the Dodge and overturned on his left side in the right lane. Another accident occurred hours earlier at mile marker 50.3 in Marathon on Saturday, but no injuries were reported. At 6:52 a.m. that day, troopers say, a car traveling north on U.S. 1 struck another whose brakes failed while pulling out of a parking lot at 6099 Overseas Highway. At 9:38 a.m. Sunday morning, a car struck a bicyclist at mile marker 49.5 in Marathon. The rider, whose name was not released as of press time, was airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center. The FHPsays 24-year-old Sara Ann Strama was traveling south on U.S. 1 when a witness stated the bicyclist "proceeded to travel from the right lane into the left lane and in front of [a car's] lane of travel." Strama told troopers she was unlocking her cell phone at the moment of impact and hadn't seen the bicycle crossing into her lane. Troopers say the rider is in critical care.3 airlifted after collisions on the highwayON U.S.1By RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com

EDITORIALCure is needed for health spinLETTERS TO THE EDITORGovernor ignores the facts about Affordable Care Act, spreading misinformation The spin doctors are having a field day with Florida and more rhetoric over the federal health-care law upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision last week. After mulling options over the weekend, Gov. Rick Scott came out Monday with guns blazing, making the rounds of national talk shows and firing away at the Affordable Care Act. On Tuesday, PolitiFact Florida awarded Scott its dreaded "Pants on Fire" label for misstatements and exaggerations. Among the biggest whoppers the governor told during appearances on Fox News, CNN and other network shows is that small-business owners will be bankrupted by the federal health-care mandate. In fact, businesses with fewer than 50 full-time employees are not required to offer coverage. The governor also took some lumps from factcheckers over his assertion that complying with the expanded Medicare provisions would cost Florida more than $2 billion in added health-care expenses. And he called it a jobs killer, citing that along with costs as reasons why Florida will not participate in the expanded Medicare program or open health insurance exchanges, which would allow consumers to comparison shop for health insurance. On Monday, the Florida Center for Fiscal and Economic Policy issued a statement saying that expanding Medicare eligibility would create 65,000 new jobs in the state over five years. Again, the governor's political agenda in attacking "Obamacare" seems to create even more doubts about his leadership on issues critical to most Floridians. Astudy by the Urban Institute, financed by the Kaiser Family Foundation, projects that Florida could receive $20 billion in federal funds between 2014 and 2019 to expand coverage for the uninsured. And the real cost to the state over that five-year period? The Urban Institute set that figure at $1.2 billion, for a net gain of $18.8 billion by accepting the federal program. That seems like a pretty expensive price tag to those working men and women who are now subsidizing health care for Florida's burgeoning ranks of the uninsured. And that's a pricey burden in Florida where 22.9 percent (that's more than one in five residents) are uninsured third worst in the country (exceeded only by Texas with 27.6 percent of its residents uninsured and Mississippi at 23.5 percent). In Massachusetts, by contrast, where then-Gov. Mitt Romney brokered a state health-care mandate, less than 5 percent of the population goes uninsured. There are plenty of lies out there regarding the federal health-care law. But one fact remains: Florida ranks in the cellar when it comes to providing affordable health care for its poorest citizens and the rest of us are paying for that despite Scott's "Pants on Fire" misstatements to the contrary.Foundation comes throughI am writing to say thank you to Ocean Reef Community Foundation for donating generously to the Autism Society of the Keys. It's a nonprofit organization whose goal is to change the course of autism in a child's life. Autism is the greatest health epidemic in the world today, with one in every 88 children being diagnosed. That's more than diabetes, leukemia, Down syndrome and AIDS combined. However, most parents know little or nothing about autism. That's why one of our goals is to help get parents and our community educated about autism. We also want to form support by connecting parents with people who understand what they're going through. Children with autism need help now; early detection and treatment is critical for recovery. Because of organizations like the Autism Society of the Keys and the Ocean Reef Community Foundation and its generous donations, we are able to give grants to families in dire need of services. Our community is so giving and for this I am forever grateful. Wendy West Key LargoNo ocean clarityI would like to pass on some information that I received from Devon Villarreal, water facilities program coordinator for the state Department of Environmental Protection in Marathon. I live in Little Venice neighborhood and am on the ocean. I have seen the clarity of the ocean water decrease on an ongoing basis. For more than eight months, there has been on an average only three to four feet of visibility. This is a far cry from the crystal clear water I have seen for more than 20 years. I was told this is due to Islamorada and Tavernier's clean-water issues. For example, not having sewer system hookups in place or stormwater control. I have to admit, that excuse was very difficult for me to believe. Devon did have a theory that made more sense. Although it is speculation, while implementing the stormwater improvements, and I use words loosely, the work has disrupted our street for more than eight months. Drilling a hole, filling it in and drilling a hole, etc. Some drains are 20 feet deep, only to be toped with black asphalt top. I find it strange that in the Florida Keys, black asphalt would even be something considered with the heat it produces. Asphalt also is a material that holds and absorbs many materials like oil and gas fumes, etc. I hope there was a good reason why it was chosen. While patting ourselves on the back to be the first to clean up, I feel that in that rush there were very poor decisions made. I feel there was a lack of common sense but the work on my street is done and they have moved on to the next neighborhood. I have no choice but to be patient and hope that soon I see the ocean water regain its crystal-clear beauty. I also hope that our mayor, manager, City Council members and residents learn from mistakes that were made in hopes that this method can be done in a more delicate way down the road, so to speak.

Editorial is faroff the markAs chairman of the Monroe County School Board, I am compelled to respond to and refute the specific content expressed in the Keynoter editorial of June 30 titled "On superintendent timeframe, School Board dropped ball." Since the nature of editorials is to provide a personal perspective on an issue, one would hope that the viewpoints expressed are derived from the facts and circumstances of the issue in question. Unfortunately, that is not always so. Case in point, one fact is that Dr. Jesus Jara did receive and holds a letter from Gov. Rick Scott stating that his term in office will end on Jan. 7, 2013. Another fact is that Florida Statute 114.04 provides that the term of office concludes on the third Tuesday of November immediately following the general election. However, an opinion was formed by the Keynoter editor that the Monroe County School Board was unaware of when Dr. Jara's term would end. That is incorrect. This had been a discussion item at several School Board meetings, all within Dr. Jara's presence. Furthermore, the School Board attorney was consulted and provided a legal opinion as to when the term would end. The finding was that the term would end on Nov. 13, 2012. During board discussions concerning when the newly hired superintendent would begin, the board agreed to provide an overlap period due to the complexities of the issues being faced and to provide a smooth transition for the new superintendent. As a result, by consensus, the board adopted a start date of Aug. 1, 2012, for the new superintendent. We are all well aware that Dr. Jara is still the superintendent of schools until Nov. 13, 2012, unless he opts to leave sooner, which is a distinct possibility. It is great sport for editorials to attack political figures, and I might add it's part of the political landscape. We are also constantly hearing about some lower-level politician attacking a higher-ranking politician of the opposing party, which is all part of the partisan politics that have become so prevalent in our society. However, the School Board is a nonpartisan political entity and as such should not engage in these types of political attacks. At the time of these discussions concerning this situation, there was a rumor that Gov. Scott was looking favorably toward Monroe County and in particular, the longtime promised state sewer funding. It would not have been a very productive move to shine a spotlight on a clerical detail from the governor's office as to the end date of Dr. Jara's term. Requesting a clarification on the January date would have resulted in creating an acknowledgement of a mistake by the governor's office. This could have been used to smear the governor and place in jeopardy the governor's good will toward Monroe County. Also, bear in mind that this would have been a needless action as we had the backing from state statutes as per our legal department. It is understandable that Dr. Jara would make his statement to a reporter about staying here to complete his term. After all, he did his best for the School Board and was rewarded by being denied the position. Let us just suppose for a moment that Dr. Jara does not find employment by the Nov. 13 date. I am certain that he will do what is correct and not risk ruining his professional opportunities elsewhere by challenging our attorney's legal opinion. While I understand that editorials are necessary and most often are very productive to the political process, I do believe that sometimes further inquiry is required concerning the situations editorials are written about. John Dick is chairman of the Monroe County School Board and is in the middle of his second four-year term.GUEST COLUMN DICK Bike path to get big overhaulThe city of Marathon hopes to make extensive renovations to the Aviation Boulevard bike path in the coming years. The City Council on June 26 authorized staff to apply for a state Department of Transportation grant of up to $2 million to do the work. The city would be obligated to provide a $35,000 match. If successful, City Manager Roger Hernstadt told the council "we'd probably receive it over two years four or five years from now." The money would come from DOT's Transportation Enhancement Grant Program for fiscal year 2016. The city was set to request $1.32 million for the proposed work but Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay pulled the item off the consent agenda to discuss it further. "We were talking not only the bike path but considerably more. We were talking something similar to Sombrero Beach Road with proper lighting and even the possibility of underground power," he said. "I've really not seen this plan and what's involved. I would like to take some public input on what we'd like to request from DOTand what we'd like to see Aviation Boulevard look like in five years." City Public Works Manager Carlos Solis said the grant application was due Friday and he'd received word of it from Monroe County 10 days before. "We were given around two and a half weeks to put the package together and get it submitted to DOT," he said. According to the city's grant application, it also intends to reconfigure the intersection of Aviation Boulevard and U.S. 1 by widening it and adding rightand left-turn-only lanes. The city has made numerous attempts to convince DOTto install a traffic light at the intersection, but has been denied because it doesn't meet traffic volume requirements. Among other aspects of the project, according to the application: Rebuilding the bike path and widening it to 8 feet. Installing safety lighting at regular intervals. Eliminating bumps and holes in the pavement. Creating well-defined separation from the path to the road. Adding landscaping around light fixtures and a rest area. Amajor hang-up to any bike-path overhaul could be fencing surrounding the county-owned Florida Keys Marathon Airport along Aviation. Moving the fence would enable the city to have a much wider path. But the county sought an opinion from St. Petersburgbased environmental consultant George Feher, who suggested that moving it would require habitat mitigation. He estimated the permitting process alone to cost "around $50,000 to $100,000." Ramsay told the Keynoter he's most concerned with the curved area at the west end of Aviation leading out to U.S. 1. "The fence movement is a little bit critical, especially on the curve, but there's no mitigation there. It would be nice to have a wider path on Aviation, but the mitigation we'd have to do to make it happen would be outrageous," he said.City applying for DOT grant for AviationMARATHONSexcapades land pair in jailABig Pine Key couple faces prison time after allegedly having sex in full view of families and children at the popular Lower Keys raft-up party spot Picnic Island on Sunday afternoon. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers arrested 22-year-old Christina Daye and Donald Young, 25, after being waved down by boaters who were reportedly disturbed by the pair's behavior. Officer Robert Dube, an FWC spokesman, said witnesses told FWC Officer Brian Fugate that Daye and Young were walking naked on the beach and having intercourse in the water. "There were many small children around," Dube said. Picnic Island is north of Little Palm Island and south of Ramrod Key. With its sandy beach, it is a popular spot for weekend boaters to go to swim, party and barbecue. Daye, a Key West waitress, and Young, a fisherman, each face a count of lewd and lascivious behavior, a second-degree felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

New York City's Midtown West neighborhood is the most popular destination this year, edging out the Chicago neighborhoods that had occupied the top spot in 2010 and 2011. Priceline.com's annual Top 50 Destinations list is based on hotel room booking requests made by customers using priceline.com's Name Your Own Price hotel reservation service. Because the survey is based on thousands of credit card-backed booking requests and not on consumer preference polls or votes, priceline.com believes the annual survey is one of the more accurate predictors of July 4 travel trends. Of 50 destinations, Key West ranks 46th, ahead of New York City's Central Park South and behind San Diego. "This year, there were really two themes," said priceline.com's Brian Ek. "Many travelers decided to visit cities like New York, Chicago, Boston and Washington, D.C., where there are big July 4 celebrations planned. Others decided to escape the recent heat wave by heading for the beaches." There were a few surprises on the list. "Because the 4th falls on a Wednesday, many travelers are making a week's vacation out of it," Ek said. "And some are splurging a bit on their trips. Hawaii destinations are No. 6, No. 9 and No. 39. This is the first time I've seen Hawaii ranked so high, or so many times. Despite record high international summer airfares, London and Paris made the list, perhaps because of the recent strength of the dollar."City ranks No.46 on priceline.comPRNewswireTOURISM Fireworks shows are set for Key Largo,Islamorada, Marathon,Sugarloaf Key and Key West.What the healthcare ruling meansThe Supreme Court's decision last week to uphold the bulk of the landmark healthcare overhaul will leave intact some popular provisions, such as requiring insurers to accept people with pre-existing conditions and to cover children up to age 26 on parents'plans, but it may mean higher health costs ahead. The ruling delivers a huge victory to President Obama on the signature law of his presidency a law that promises to make insurance available to a good number of the 49 million Americans who are currently uninsured. Some observers predict the law will lead to higher costs. "The end result is everybody's happy because everybody can get health insurance, [but] who's going to pay for it? That's the big question," said Keith McMurdy, a New York-based partner with law firm Fox Rothschild, which works with employers on their benefits plans. "In the past year, insurance premiums went up to begin covering some of the requirements of health-care reform. As more of those requirements develop, the cost of insurance will continue to go up," he said. Karen Pollitz, a senior fellow at the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation, said the law's measures aimed at curbing costs have yet to take effect. For instance, insurance companies currently compete "on the basis of their ability to select out the healthiest customers and profit off them as much as possible," she said. But the law will force them to compete on value, Pollitz said, helping to bring costs down. How will the law do that? In part, by requiring insurers to cover people regardless of pre-existing conditions and requiring minimum standards for what policies cover, plus much greater disclosure to consumers about what they're paying for. The law's provisions are "a new factor in the health care marketplace that we don't have today that will curb health care costs," she said. In the United States, the growth in spending on health care slowed in 2010, up 3 percent compared with an average 4 percent growth rate each year from 2000 to 2009, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development said Thursday. Still, health spending as a share of gross domestic product was at almost 18 percent the highest in the United States versus other OECD countries.2014 is keyStarting in 2014, the law will make it impossible for insurers to deny coverage to people with pre-existing conditions, such as asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure or a history of cancer. Meanwhile, the inclusion of young adults on their parents'coverage, already in effect, has proved popular in opinion polls, as the economic downturn left many young people jobless and without access to health insurance. About 6.6 million young adults joined or stayed on their parents'health plans in 2011 who would not have been able to do so before the Affordable Care Act, according to a recent report from the Commonwealth Fund, a private foundation in New York. "This is truly a hallelujah moment for families across America. It means families will get the peace of mind that health coverage and care will be there for them when they need it," said Ron Pollack, executive director of Families USA, a nonprofit group representing health-care consumers in Washington.The penaltiesBut some people will face penalties, starting in 2014, if they don't buy insurance. In 2014, the penalty, unless you qualify for an exemption, is 1 percent of family income or $95 per adult ($47.50 for a child), whichever is greater. For example, for a person with annual income of $50,000, that's $500. In 2015, the penalty rises to 2 percent of family income or $325 per adult, whichever is greater, and in 2016 and beyond, it's 2.5 percent of family income or $695 per adult, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. Still, the law "frees many Americans from simply having employer-provided coverage as their only choice," said Randall Abbott, senior consulting leader at Towers Watson, a benefits-consulting firm. The insurance exchanges coming in 2014, combined with the law's requirement that consumers can't be denied coverage, is good news for people who retire before being eligible for Medicare, among others who currently don't have insurance, according to Abbott. The exchanges are essentially a new marketplace where consumers can shop and compare standardized plans. But he added that "the economic considerations of whether the nation can afford it over the long term is something we now need to grapple with from a budget perspective." Part of those costs will be paid through higher Medicare tax rates, slated to start in 2013, for some high-income people, including a 3.8 percent tax on some investment income, as well as raising from 1.45 percent to 2.35 percent the payroll tax rate for single filers with income of more than $200,000 and married couples earning more than $250,000.New taxesThese new taxes will raise an estimated $35 billion to $40 billion a year by the end of the decade, said Clint Stretch, former legislation council to the Joint Committee on Taxation and formerly a tax policy leader for a major accounting firm. Keep in mind that Republicans have vowed to repeal the entire law, though their ability to do so may depend on the outcome of the presidential election and whether they gain seats in the Senate. What's more, tax laws are always up for debate in Congress. But any effort to repeal the health-care tax on highincome people "will be complicated by the fact that this tax is used to support Medicare," Stretch said. "Conservative attempts to repeal it may be cast as an attack on Medicare solvency. While the odds favor an extension of the Bush tax cuts at year-end, they may not favor repealing or delaying this tax." Here are a few of the other changes that result from the law: The $1.3 billion in rebates to consumers as a result of a provision in the health law also appear likely to move forward as expected. Medicare beneficiaries who fall into the coverage gap known as the doughnut hole will continue to receive discounts on prescription and generic drugs as part of the law's move to close the entire coverage gap by 2020.Premium fairnessInsurers will no longer be allowed to charge women higher premiums than they do for men. There are tighter restrictions on how much premiums can vary based on age. Insurers will no longer be able to impose lifetime dollar limits on coverage. New consumer protections will prohibit insurers from rescinding coverage when a member gets sick, except for cases of fraud. And when a member disputes a claim, there will be new standards for third-party appeals.Supreme Court decision has many impactsMcClatchy-TribuneCONSUMERSCredit-card complaint database is launchedThe federal government has launched an online database of complaints about credit cards. The public can see what types of complaints people have filed against any bank that issues credit cards. They can also search complaints by ZIPcode and see how banks responded. The database does not include personal information. The database went live June 19. It will be maintained by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which was set up after the 2008 financial crisis to protect consumers from loans and cards with hidden fees or other traps. The CFPB is the first agency to set up a public website to track complaints about consumer financial products. The agency will use the database to track complaints and identify potential problems in the marketplace, such as a new card that carries hidden or poorly disclosed fees. It also wants consumers to use the information to research financial products they might use. "Each and every time we hear from American consumers about their troublesome transactions with financial products, it gives us important insight," CFPB Director Richard Cordray said. The agency has also released some details on thousands of complaints it has fielded about credit cards, home mortgages, student loans and other bank products. Among the findings: The agency received 19,000 complaints about home loans from December through June 1. The most common came from people having trouble paying their mortgages and were released to loan modifications, collections or foreclosure. It received 17,000 complaints about credit cards, mostly related to billing disputes, from December through June 1. In about 2,000 of those cases, customers recovered money. The credit card database contains information on complaints received by the agency since June 1. The agency expects to add retroactive data later this year. The public database of complaints could be extended to mortgages, student loans and bank accounts.

To a motorist driving along Kennedy Drive at the sultry, quiet hour of 2 on Sunday afternoon, he or she might have paused at the eruption of cheers that carried over from the nearby Rosa E. Hernandez Softball Field.What was going on at that little ballpark whose parking lot was thick with SUVs and whose outfield fences were rife with advertisements was a championship game between the Under-12 Key West team and the Sunrise Thunder from Broward County. This was part of a weekend 23-team fast-pitch Softball in Paradise tournament sanctioned by the Kissimmee-based United State Specialty Sports Association, founded in 1968 as the United States Slo-Pitch Softball Association.The game was tied, 1-1, going into an extra inning, and the grandstands were filled with parents and fans competing for space with coolers, Cheez-Its and sports drinks.Encouragement rained down on the players in their colorful uniforms: "Hang in there, young and tough."

With enough of a breeze to keep the sweat off your brow, fishing on the reef is quite comfortable. And the consistent yellowtail bite makes it all that much more enjoyable. The size of the yellowtails runs the gamut from just legal to flags. The smaller fish are up shallow, whereas the deeper you fish, the bigger the tails. There are scattered grouper on the reef, but they tend to be of a diminutive size. Still a ton of fun to catch, especially for newbies to saltwater fishing. There are some muttons on the reef as well as the wrecks, with amberjack and jack crevalle mixed in to test your mettle. Afavorite summer fishery is the night bite for mangrove snapper, and it is fulfilling anglers'desires to beat the heat and get some meat. The fishing is very good in 40 to 60 feet of water using pilchards caught on the reef. The mangroves average two to three pounds, but come in as big as seven. The bay is still holding plenty of keeper size mangroves. This venue is always great for family fun fishing with good eats to follow. Offshore, the dolphin fishing continues to be on the slow side, but the ones caught are big slammers over 20 pounds for the most part. Anglers are going as far as 40 miles with a lot more looking than catching.The week's bestIslamorada's Capt.

"Girls softball in Key West is as good as it's ever been," said Fat Yaniz, also known as a city commissioner. "The participation by these young ladies is outstanding. It's a great tribute to Title Nine." Down on the field, a ground ball eluded the Conch shortstop and the winning run scored for the Thunder. After the handshakes and a post-game meeting, the local girls were loudly applauded as they filed back to their dugout. The tourney, which drew teams from Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Jupiter and Boynton Beach, required three other summer-baked venues Key West High, Wickers Fields and the Clayton Sterling Baseball Complex. The visiting teams had rooms at five hotels. There were five teams from the Key West Girls Recreational Softball League represented U8, which finished second, U10 (second), U12 (second), U14 (third) and U16 (second).When the tourney was over, coaches had high praise for the following local players:On the U8 team: Laila Jones, who shined on defense; Cassadee Wellings, who caught four games; and Sabrina Ramirez, who excelled with the bat.U10: Pitcher/catcher Gracie Wood and pitcher/ catcher Chloe Hartle; hitters Emmeline Hamilton, Breannan Kissel and Jennelle Palamino; and Abigail Marcinack, who sparkled with her glove.U12: MacKenzie Cohen, who had a game-winning hit; Jayla Di Gennaro, who hit well; and pitchers Mattie Thompson and Jade Vaughn.U14: Pitchers Kendell Snow and Jewls Castillo; third baseman Angela Niles; and hitter Anjelika Green.U16: Pitchers Desirae Laguna and Raylyn Faatuai, and defensive standouts Alexis Thompson and Tamiya Major.The tournament had been a Key West slice of life, a fact that was not lost on Yaniz. "It's not all about Duval Street and cruise ships," he had said. "This is the meat and potatoes.""Our league has 270 players and 19 teams," said league president George Niles, whose wife, Sonia, was manning a concession stand.270 players host visitorsFrom Softball,1BMinors stumbleThe Upper Keys team in Little League's age 9-10 division lost a 9-2 decision to Kendall in Sunday's District 8 South Pool games at the Key Largo Community Park.

Chuck Brodzki of Islamorada put Keys residents Chris DeHart and Matt Greenwald on five tarpon in the 45to 90-pound range. They used crabs and were fishing after dark at the Long Key Bridge. Capt. T.J. Yzenas, of Island Lure Charters out of Captain Hook's Marina in Marathon, fished groups from Florida, Illinois, California and Maryland. They had success with mangroves in the bay and yellowtails on the reef, with the largest of the tails coming from 85 feet of water.The crews at Captain Pip's Marina in Marathon have been busy on the reef and offshore.

Bob Crockett and mate Mike Rathbun, fished the Miller family from Boca Raton, and they caught dolphin and yellowtails. The SeaSquared hosted multiple families for trips to the reef with limits of yellowtails plus black grouper to show for it. We also fished a large family group in the bay for mangroves and repeat clients from Tampa offshore for dolphin. We closed out June with a combo snapper/shark trip for a family from Washington.Capt. Kevin Wilson, of Knee Deep Charters out of the Geiger Key Marina fished aptly named Shark Key Channel, where his angler was reeling in a 75-pound tarpon only to have the fish eaten by a 10-foot hammerhead.Capt. Moe Mottice, of Moe's Custom Charters in Key West, put his anglers on tarpon, snappers and sharks in the harbor. Once the big breeze cleared, he got out to the reef for great action on yellowtails and big mangroves. In the Gulf, Goliath grouper and tiger sharks provided lots of entertainment for his anglers.Casting contestCapt.

The honor came at the conference's annual conference, June 14 to 16 in Lakeland.The only other Florida United Methodist Historic Sites are the First UMC, Alachua; Grace UMC, St. Augustine; Lake Magdalene UMC, Tam-pa; Manatee UMC, Bradenton; Memorial UMC, Fernandina Beach; Middleburg UMC, Middleburg; and Trinity UMC, Tallahassee. The Mary McLeod Bethune Foundation in Daytona Beach is a United Methodist Heritage Landmark."What an honor and privilege it was for me to represent Key West United Methodist Church at our annual conference.... God has blessed us not only with a beautiful sanctuary but a legacy of love and faith in the island of Key West," said Rev. Ruben Velasco. The Key West United Methodist Church is the oldest Methodist church in the southern half of Florida and traces its roots to the 1830s, when Wesleyan Methodists from the Bahamas began meeting for worship.It received its first appointment of a pastor in 1844. In 1872, it began a mission to Cuban immigrants in Key West, which expanded to include a mission in Tampa and later on the island of Cuba.Methodist preaching was first heard in Key West in 1832 when two traveling missionaries arrived by schooner. For the next 12 years the gathering of Methodists was a simple, independent group often meeting in the home of Samuel Kemp, a Bahamian Methodist lay person, who moved here in 1837. Some of Kemp's descendants continue to worship in the sanctuary today. The first Methodist Episcopal Church was organized in 1844 and Rev. Alexander Graham was appointed pastor. It's known as the Old Stone Church because it was constructed of native coral rock. Part of it was quarried from the area on the Simonton Street side of the building.Roots go back to the 1830sRELIGIONKeys kids win weekly national contestFlorida Keys kids Craig Tagliareni and Jesse Brady were among the first weekly winners (each getting a $100 gift certificate to West Marine) for their submissions in the summer-long Sanctuary Classic national fishing and photo contest organized by Long Beach, Calif., Sportfishing Conservancy.Gift certificates will be awarded each week to the 10 photos receiving the most votes online.

Pong, one of the world's first video games, was born there, as was Centipede, a classic from the era of quarter-guzzling arcade machines. Call of Duty creator Activision was started by four of Atari's former game developers. The iconic video game company turns 40 years old this week, much slimmer these days as it tries to stay relevant in the age of Angry Birds and Words With Friends. But Atari's influence on today's video games is pervasive. Although it wasn't the first company to make video games, Atari was the first to make a lasting impression on an entire generation. At arcades or at video game bars such as Barcade in the trendy Williamsburg section of Brooklyn nostalgic patrons still gather around such Atari classics as Asteroids, Joust and Centipede. The Atari 2600, launched in 1977, was the first video game console in millions of homes, long before the Nintendo Entertainment System (1985), Sony's PlayStation (1994) and Microsoft's Xbox (2001). Today's younger iPhone gamers might not remember how Pong, that simple, twodimensional riff on PingPong, swept across living rooms and arcades in the 1970s. But they might recognize elements of it in easy-to-learn, hard-to-master games based on simple physics among them, Angry Birds. "For tens of millions of Gen X-ers, or kids who grew up in America in the '70s and '80s, Atari is a cultural icon, an intrinsic part of childhood," says Scott Steinberg, tech analyst and author of "The Modern Parent's Guide to Kids and Video Games." Pong, he adds, was in some ways the very first social video game, one designed to play in bars, at home or at an arcade, while spectators crowded around to watch the action. Launched in 1972 from Atari's Silicon Valley headquarters, Pong featured a basic black-and-white screen (that's black and white only, no shades of gray here), divided by a dotted line. Short white lines on either side stood in for paddles. Two players controlled them and tried to get a moving dot the ball past their opponent. With Pong, Atari introduced video games to the masses just as Apple and Microsoft ushered in the personal computer era by bringing computers to people's desktops in the 1980s. "It makes me think that I am getting really old," says Nolan Bushnell, the cofounder of Atari. "I'm 69, which means I was 29 when I founded Atari. It seems really young in retrospect." It doesn't take much effort these days to see 20something entrepreneurs in technology. Mark Zuckerberg was just 19 when he started Facebook in his Harvard dorm room. But back in the early '70s, Bushnell said, "no one in their 20s started companies. In some ways it paved the way for Apple, Microsoft and those guys." Bushnell said Atari succeeded early on because it nurtured ideas from its engineers and computer programmers.Creativity rules"We dominated not because of our manufacturing and marketing prowess but because of creativity," Bushnell says. "The lasting legacy: That creativity is a real weapon. And in some ways Apple has shown that as well." Jobs was just 19 when Atari hired him as a technician, making $5 an hour. He worked the night shift because many of his coworkers didn't get along with him and didn't appreciate his refusal to wear deodorant, He wasn't there for long he left the company in 1974 to travel to India and co-founded Apple two years later, in 1976. Dona Bailey, one of the creators of Centipede, recalls a notebook that Atari had with maybe 30 ideas for games in it. "Most of them were laser games," says Bailey, who was the only female programmer in Atari's arcade division when she was hired in 1980 and when she left in 1982. "I wasn't really interested in war, or lasering anything, or violence." The only ideas in the notebook that didn't have to do with "lasering things or frying things" were two sentences about a multi-segmented insect that walks out on the screen and winds its way down the screen toward the player, she says. There was implicit shooting, as the player at the bottom had to destroy the insect before getting hit by it, but "it didn't seem that bad to shoot a bug." Thus, Centipede was born. "It may rise again, but it remains to be seen whether Atari's place is among retail giants [such as] Activision and Electronic Arts," Steinberg says, "Or in a future that is defined by its own past."Video games have come a long wayAssociated PressTECHNOLOGY Photo courtesy ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this June 5,1984,photo,a woman in Chicago demonstrates Atari's new game,Mind Link,which utilizes a headband that picks up electrical impulse from the movement of the forehead and transmits them to a receiver attached to a video game or home computer console. If you remember this as the first video game you played,you're probably in the minority. Saturn moon Titan may harbor oceanScientists reported Thursday on the strongest sign yet that Saturn's giant moon may have a salty ocean beneath its chilly surface.If confirmed, it would catapult Titan into an elite class of solar system moons harboring water, an essential ingredient for life.Titan boasts methanefilled seas at the poles and a possible lake near the equator. And it's long been speculated that Titan contains a hidden liquid layer, based on mathematical modeling and electric field measurements made by the Huygens spacecraft that landed on the surface in 2005.The latest evidence is still indirect, but outside scientists said it's probably the best that can be obtained short of sending a spacecraft to drill into the surface a costly endeavor that won't happen anytime soon.The research looks convincing, said Gabriel Tobie of France's University of Nantes. "If the analysis is correct, this is a very important finding," Tobie said in an email. The finding by an international team of researchers was released online Thursday by the journal Science. The scientists pored over data from the orbiting Cassini spacecraft, which flew by Titan half a dozen times between 2006 and last year and took gravity measurements for a glimpse of its interior. They found Titan got squeezed and stretched depending on its orbit around Saturn, suggesting the presence of a buried ocean. If Titan were solid rock and ice, such deformations would not occur. "Titan is quite squishy," noted Jonathan Lunine of Cornell University, who was part of the research team.If so,life there could be possibleBy ALICIA CHANGAssociated PressASTRONOMYPhoto courtesy ASSOCIATED PRESSThis undated image by the Cassini spacecraft released by NASA shows Saturn's largest moon,Titan,passing in front of the planet and its rings.A new study released Thursday suggests there may be an ocean below Titan's frigid surface.
