Story, 2A Big Pine fire set ThursdayThe first intentional burn on Big Pine Key since the Blue Hole Fire scorched 100 acres last September could be lit Thursday. Staff with the National Key Deer Refuge plan to ignite the controlled burn on a narrow, boomerang-shaped tract covering 10 acres along the west side of Key Deer Boulevard. The site, between Big Pine Avenue and Mahogany Lane, lies close to the Blue Hole area where a planned 10-acre burn on Sept. 15 turned into a wildfire that covered a much larger area and forced a fivehour evacuation for residents of the Pine Heights subdivision. "We won't make the final decision to burn until Thursday morning, depending on weather and conditions," refuge manager Anne Morkill said Tuesday. Refuge fire-management specialist Dana Cohen said U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service staff has been applying "lessons learned" from the Blue Hole Fire at prescribed burns in mainland refuges in recent months. "We've been testing the protocols learned here last year and things have gone perfectly," Cohen said. "We look forward to a good burn here." One of the most visible changes Thursday will be more firefighters at the site. "There will be a lot of people there," Morkill said of units from Fish and Wildlife, the National Park Service, the Florida Division of Forestry, Monroe County Fire Rescue and the Sheriff's Office.

Incoming Marathon High School junior Sarah Dodamead, 16, did just that and said her fiveweek journey to the Republic of Botswana was one of the most rewarding experiences of her young life. "It was the most eyeopening thing ever. It was a really beautiful experience because these people lived with nothing but they were so happy," she said. The trip, from June 28 to Aug. 2, was arranged through the Experiment in International Living, a company that's been sending high-schoolers abroad since 1932 and working in Monroe County since 2006. Since then, more than 100 Keys students have gone abroad through Experiment, which partners with the Monroe County Education Foundation. Dodamead chose an economically poor destination because she wanted to experience something worlds apart from her life here in the Keys. "I was looking for an experience. You can backpack through Europe, but you don't get the full cultural immersion. I wanted to see how people live and stop taking things for granted," she said. For the first three weeks, Dodamead and a handful of other American students stayed with host families in the village of Mogobane. She stayed in a three-bedroom house with a mother, her five children and one grandchild. Dodamead says most of her days were spent doing chores, such as hand-washing clothes or feeding the family's animals. Comm-unity service at the village school included building benches and tables, bricklaying and tutoring children. The trip fell during the winter in Botswana, where temperatures often reach the freezing point. Dodamead says she found herself huddled over a fire in a shack each morning with her host family. "We boiled water outside and carried it in a bucket through the house and into the tub. We'd literally have an inch of water in the bathtub that we had to roll around in," she said. The village residents wore their finest clothes to the community church, which belied the condition of the building. "People went there in their best clothes and when you go inside, it's bricks thrown on top of each other. The benches are pieces of wood on top of rocks, but they were so happy to be together," Dodamead said.

Friday, state marine officers arrested Luis Perez-Torna, 43, at the Boca Chica Channel Bridge when they discovered he had four lobsters out of season and under legal size, and three speared lobsters. All are misdemeanors. On June 29, he was arrested for similar violations at the same location.

Sternad, the lesser known of the four candidates running in the Aug. 14 Democratic primary, sent mailings to the Keys this week insinuating he is the only true American on the ticket. One flier states: Lamar Sternad is the only Democratic candidate that was born and raised in the United States. He will advocate for English as our official language. Americans in Florida are being discriminated against by employers who hire illegal immigrants and take jobs away from our law abiding citizens. Another flier simply states: Lamar is as American as Apple Pie. Its not clear what demographic among Monroe County Democrats Sternad is trying to attract. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, more than 20 percent of the Keys population is of Hispanic or Latino origin. Sternad could not be reached for comment. The phone number he provided the Florida Division of Elections has been disconnected, and an e-mail sent to his campaign address was not returned. Interestingly, fliers Sternad mailed to black voters in Miami-Dade recently take another, more tolerant approach. In those fliers, Sternad, who is white, does not show his headshot. At least two of the ads show the back of President Obama stating Ive got his back. Are you with me? The other shows Martin Luther King Jr. One of the fliers regarding discrimination of black voters states: The Bush administration tried to stop us. Gov. Rick Scotts administration continues to try and stop us. Are we going to let them? Sternads opponents blasted the message in the fliers as racist, divisive and deceptively opportunistic. I assume if there was an Indian vote, hed be speaking Hindi, said Joe Garcia, former Democratic Party chairman in Miami-Dade and a District 26 candidate. Vladimir Gutman, campaign manager for Gloria Romero Roses, called the mailers unbelievable. Congress is full of people who will divide communities in order to win an election, and these mailers are an appalling example of that strategy, Gutman said. Gustavo Marin, a longtime political activist, is also running in the Democratic primary for District 26. Whoever wins on Aug. 14 will face Republican incumbent Rep. David Rivera in the November election. District 26 was recently redrawn. It stretches from the southwest suburbs of Miami-Dade County to the Keys.Congressional hopefuls fliers called deceptiveELECTION 2012Inbound traffic being squeezed moreWith the traffic impact of major construction along North Roosevelt Boulevard starting to take hold, Key Westers are adjusting to regular delays and backups. On July 30, vehicular traffic on the major artery into the Southernmost City changed from two inbound and outbound lanes each to just two inbound lanes between Kennedy Drive and Palm Avenue. At Palm, traffic goes down to one inbound lane to the intersection of Truman, which North Roosevelt becomes at Eisenhower, and White streets. Outbound traffic is diverted on White Street over to Flagler Avenue or South Roosevelt Boulevard. John Dresher, manager of the Gordon Food Service Marketplace at 2508 N. Roosevelt, says shoppers are altering their routines to accommodate the massive roadwork. We havent really lost any business from the endeavors, Dresher says, but we have learned people are doing their shopping differently. Theyre pacing themselves as to what they need and coming in at different times of the day. He says instead of coming in when the store opens at 8 a.m., Theyre coming in a little bit later in the morning and a little bit later at night. The $41.5 million project started in April and is slated for completion by June 2014. The primary contractor for the Florida Department of Transportation is the Miami-based De Moya Group Inc. The state is paying $31.8 million of the $41.5 million projects cost. The city of Key West is putting in $4.3 million for a new sewer main and the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority is adding $5.4 million for a new water line. The work includes the entire stretch of the North Roosevelt seawall, slated to be bordered by a 20-footwide landscaped promenade; four lanes of traffic each 11 feet wide; a 10-foot center turn lane; and a sixfoot sidewalk on the business side of the road running from North Roosevelt and U.S. 1 to the intersection of North Roosevelt and Eisenhower Drive. For the duration of the construction, DOTis maintaining a website, www.fdotmonroe.com/keywest, that allows motorists to register for e-mail updates about changes in work hours, traffic patterns and the like. There are 35 blackout days, or days when construction wont be done, each year during the construction to allow for tourist draws like the annual Fantasy Fest and powerboat races.Motorists start to get acclimatedKEY WESTfirefighting helicopter from Everglades National Park will be stationed on the island. I definitely feel better about this burn, Monroe County Fire Chief James Callahan said. Fish and Wildlife has prepared more and we have prepared more. There will be more people assigned at the burn to make sure there is no threat to life or property. Even as it grew to 10 times the planned size, the Blue Hole Fire was contained within national refuge property. No homes were damaged, and wildlife losses apparently were limited to about a dozen box turtles. Definitely there was no sign of Key deer deaths, Cohen said. Many Big Pine Key residents were wary of prescribed burns even before the Blue Hole Fire. Refuge staff maintains that occasional fires are needed to preserve the rare pine rockland habitat unique to the Keys and a few small parcels in Miami-Dade County. Pine rocklands are the most diverse plant communities in Florida, says a refuge report. However, their diversity diminishes as forests become overgrown. Plants in this forest type need open areas and rare plants endemic to the pine rocklands such as deltoid spurge, sand flax and Big Pine partridge pea flourish following a fire. Burns also clear out underbrush that could fuel unplanned fires caused by carelessness or lighting strikes. The area targeted Thursday was last burned in 2009. Robert Ehrig, an ecologist and 34-year Big Pine resident, doesnt agree that a site burned three years ago needs to be ignited again. There is no real science saying you should burn anything after three years, Ehrig said. There really is no need to burn this, and it could do some real damage to a unique ecosystem. It seems their resources would be better spent somewhere else. Morkill said the Thursday fire should be lit sometime after 9 a.m., and likely would last until midto-late afternoon. Key Deer Boulevard will remain open to traffic unless smoke significantly lowers visibility.More protectionFrom Fire,1A a 50 percent penalty and 15 percent interest rate. That prompted Southeast to sue on Aug. 2 to contest the loss of tax-exempt status. In the lawsuit, Southeast attorneys James Spoonhour and David Paul Horan say the retroactive taxing is invalid and unenforceable because Borglum himself granted the exemption in 2007. Horan says: We believe [Karl Borglum] was correct to start out with. Then something changed and he decided he wasnt correct. Weve had an exemption all this time. However, Borglum says that until the liens are satisfied or the Circuit Court Judge David Audlin reaches a decision which either side could appeal ownership of the properties cannot change. For Peary Court, which Southeast is trying to sell to a private developer for a rumored price in the $30 million range, that could prove complicating. Borglum says, The lien on the property is for the tax collector to collect. Theyre either paid by people who owe it or they engage the court. The lien has to be paid before the property can be refinanced or conveyed. For Peary Court: Because theres discussion about selling that property, absent some type of court action or court decision, in our opinion thatd have to be resolved before the sale could take place. Horan says the lien can be addressed with the buyer, White Street Partners LLC. Whoever it would be that takes title would either have to get indemnification from the seller saying Ill be responsible for the lien, or were going to go ahead and litigate it. He also said the purchase price for the amount of the lien could be discounted. For Peary Court, that would be $1,773,940. White Street Partners LLC is in talks with Southeast to close the sale of 24-acre, 157-unit Peary Court. At the same time, city officials are working with the developer on zoning and density regulations needed to accommodate construction of 48 proposed affordable units on the Old Town site. In the 29-page complaint, Horan and Spoonhour name as defendants Borglum, Monroe County Tax Collector Danise Henriquez and Marshall Strangburg, interim executive director of the Florida Department of Revenue.Sale blocked?From Navy,1ASea hagarraignment scheduled for ThursdayThe Conch Key woman known as sea hag who allegedly shot and killed her neighbor over a can of Busch Light beer on July 29 is scheduled for arraignment Thursday morning in Marathon. Assistant State Attorney Tanner Demmery said a grand jury handed down a firstdegree murder charge for Carolyn Dukeshire, 62, on Friday. Shes accused of shooting Conch Key neighbor Martin Mazur, 64, five times after she asked him for a beer and he refused. The arraignment is scheduled for between 9 and 11 a.m. at the Marathon courthouse before Acting Circuit Court Judge Ruth Becker. Demmery said Dukeshire would be represented by the Monroe County Public Defenders Office. A17-year Keys resident, Dukeshire has no previous arrest history in Monroe County. Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said investigators dont believe she has one elsewhere. Just before the shooting, according to authorities, Dukeshire reportedly asked Mazur, Do you have a cold beer for me? He reportedly replied, I have absolutely nothing for you. Thats when, investigators say, Dukeshire, who reportedly had done some lobster-trap work for Mazur in the past, shot Mazur twice in the lower right abdomen, twice in the back and once in the right wrist. It happened a little after 7 p.m. at Mazurs house, 53 N. Conch Ave. He was later pronounced dead at Fishermens Hospital. Deputy Michael Claudys report says it seems apparent Mazur was attempting to flee from the gunfire but collapsed near a tiki bar in his back yard. Mazurs reported business partner, Casey Whippo, 30, witnessed the shooting and told police he struggled with Dukeshire for the gun. Whippo told investigators he grabbed Dukeshires arms, told her not to leave and called the Sheriffs Office. He said Dukeshire threw the gun into a canal behind the house during the struggle. Sheriffs Office divers found the small-caliber handgun in the water the next day. Mazurs is the third confirmed homicide in the Keys this year.

She awlessly maintains her credentials and will never jeopardize cases with loose public talk.www.vogel2012.com "It's a great way to vote," said Deputy Supervisor Joyce Griffin. "You don't have to worry about crowds or whether it's going to rain." Aseries of picnic-style events held at early-voting sites on Saturday boosted todate turnout ahead of the 2010 primary numbers, Griffin said. "We weren't quite up to 2010 but now we're ahead," she said. As of Tuesday, Monroe County had 48,928 registered voters 18,539 Repub-licans, 16,589 Democrats and 13,800 others either registered with other parties or not affiliated. Voters who have moved since 2010 should contact the closest Elections Supervisor's Office to be sure you're headed to the right precinct. "You must vote in the precinct where you live now, not the one where you used to vote," Griffin said. "Give us a call to check or to give us an address change." Voters can change their address on election day "but it will take longer to vote," Griffin said. "Usually people want to run in and get out." Sites staffed for early voting are open through Aug. 11. They are: Key West elections office, 530 Whitehead St. Big Pine Key library, in the Winn Dixie Shopping Center off Key Deer Boulevard. Marathon elections office, Marathon Government Center annex at 490 63rd St. oceanside. Islamorada library, mile marker 81.8 bayside. Key Largo elections office, Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center, mile marker 102 bayside. Early voting is from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at all locations every day but Sunday. The Florida Legislature changed state law in 2011 to reduce the 14-day period for early voting to eight days. But Monroe County and four other counties are eligible to keep the longer period because they were found to have violated minority-voting rights under a 1975 provision of the federal Civil Rights Act. As a result, any law changing voting rules in those five "Section 5" counties must be approved by the U.S. Department of Justice or the federal courts. Aruling by the federal court on Florida's revised voting law has not been issued yet. Monroe County's violation in the mid-1970s was not providing Spanish-language ballots despite having a significant population of Hispanic citizens. Monroe County's retiring elections supervisor, Harry Sawyer Jr., said the local ballot problems were resolved decades ago, but Sawyer supports keeping the longer early-voting period.Ballots pour inFrom Vote,1A exclusively, outside of a local delicacy she'd certainly never tried before. "They'd pile rice onto our plates. It's rude to not finish your food, so we ate buckets of rice," she said. "And they'd boil grass; that was not the most appetizing thing I've ever had in my life." Later came a two-day trip to the capital city of Gaborone, where the group stayed in a hotel and Dodamead had her only shower in Africa and took in the sights. The final two weeks were spent on a camping safari in the Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park in Northern Botswana. "We'd wake up with lion and [other animal] tracks around our tents," Dodamead said. Getting to Botswana is no easy task. Dodamead flew from Miami to New York, and from New York boarded a 15-hour flight to South Africa, which borders Botswana. From there, she took another flight to her host country. But the travel and meager accommodations only enhanced the trip, she says. Dodamead hopes to take part in the program again next summer Mongolia is at the top of her list.Lions pass by tent during the nightFrom Dodamead,1AMan dies when struck by carAsecond Keys pedestrian in just over a week died Monday after being struck by a car in the Tavernier Towne shopping center parking lot. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, 54-year-old Deborah Wilson Seitz hit 85year-old George Hanses as he crossed a walkway in the Upper Keys lot near mile marker 91 around 12:30 p.m. His was the 16th traffic fatality of 2012 south of Florida City. Hanses was airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami, where he was later pronounced dead. He lived in Tavernier, as does Wilson Seitz. According to the FHP, Wilson Seitz's 2003 Ford was stopped at a stop sign in the parking lot and she failed to acknowledge the crossing. She turned left and struck Hanses, who "fell and hit his head on the road." On July 28, 51-year-old Summerland Key resident Joey McDaniel died walking across U.S. 1 from west to east near Horace Street around mile marker 24. He was struck by 64-yearold Carrollton, Texas, resident Jalaluddin Lakhani. It's the 16th road fatality of the yearKeynoter StaffUPPER KEYSDouble DUImanslaughter trial setMarathon resident Pierson Villalobos, 31, is finally slated to stand trial next month on numerous charges stemming from a 2009 drunk-driving crash that killed two people. "We've been trying to get it done for months. I don't think there's anything left to be done," Assistant State Attorney Tanner Demmery said, referring to pre-trial work. Demmery objected months ago to continuances requested by Miami-based defense attorney Tyrone Valentine. Valentine is Villalobos'third attorney; the first two were Monroe County public defenders. "He had switched attorneys at the last minute and [Valentine] asked for some time to do work he felt the other attorney hadn't done," Demmery said. Valentine hired an accident reconstruction expert to review the crash and Demmery said his office traveled to depose that person. Villalobos would stand trial for two counts each of DUI-manslaughter and vehicular homicide, and three counts of DUI-personal injury and property damage with a prior conviction. The Nov. 28, 2009, crash killed 42-year-old Deborah Mangrum and 34year-old Christopher Jennings, a couple that had only recently moved to Marathon. Around 9:30 p.m. that night, authorities say Villalobos'1999 Ford was headed northbound and collided with a 2009 Toyota driven by Marathon resident Mercedes Diaz, 57. It happened on U.S. 1 at 23rd Street. State troopers say Villalobos'car collided with the left side of Diaz's car and continued forward, smashing into Mangrum's car. Mangrum, a mother of four, died at the scene. Jennings died a few days later at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami. Since the crash, Villalobos has been jailed in lieu of $1 million bond. Even if he could raise the bond money, he wouldn't be released because authorities have an immigration hold on him. In 2006, Villalobos was convicted of drunk driving after being arrested for having a blood alcohol content of more than .20 percent. In Florida, .08 is considered legally drunk.Crash occurred nearly 3 years ago in MarathonIN THE COURTS By RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com

The bills, assessed by the city along with trash and stormwater charges, will be one combined bill from the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority. The trash and stormwater charges will still be billed and collected by the city's Revenue Department. But in 2014, those charges will show up on a property owner's annual city tax bill, doing away with a monthly bill. Jay Gewin, the city's utilities manager, said the billing transfer for sewers will reduce the number of delinquent accounts. "It will help our collection efforts," he said. "Starting from Oct. 1, if your bill becomes delinquent ... they'll shut off your water. And if you don't have any water coming in, it's difficult to have sewage coming out." The FKAAcollects water and sewer payments for unincorporated Monroe County and the city of Marathon. Based on ongoing city budget discussions, utility rates will stay the same for fiscal year 2012-13 starting on Oct. 1. The residential sewer rate, one which is switching to the FKAAbill, will stay at $23.23 for the first 3,600 gallons of water per month, then it's $4.60 per each additional 1,000 gallons. For water, the FKAA bills residential customers a monthly base charge, which varies depending on the type of meter, but is normally $13.27, plus usage charges ranging from $5.57 per month for up to 6,000 gallons. Beyond that, the usage charge increases incrementally, topping out at $11.16 for more than 50,000 gallons used per month. The residential solidwaste rate, which includes two trash and one recycling pickup each week, will stay at $319.17 annually. The stormwater rate is $92.16 per year for each so-called equivalent service unit.Sewer transferring as of Oct.1KEY WESTBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com

FIRM seeks monetary helpLocal city councils and commissions up and down the Keys should expect a visit from representatives of the nonprofit Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe in the near future. Executive Director Annalise Mannix said the grassroots group that's focused on fighting state windstorm insurance rate hikes in the Keys needs to raise anywhere from $100,000 to $400,000 for a new "data project to verify the construction quality of Keys' structures." She hopes local governments and the group's membership are willing to pitch in for the study. Her tour begins Aug. 15 with a visit to the Monroe County Commission in Key Largo. "In order for us to determine how accurate the current [hurricane] models and insurance rates are, we need to perform a study of existing construction to determine if the input to the models are accurate and substantial," Mannix said. Mannix says current state models often use "default values" that don't take into account strict Keys building code. Houses here are designed to weather much heavier winds than elsewhere in the state, she said. "Is the house designed by an engineer or architect, or to minimal building code [standards]? It defaults to building code, but most houses built in the past 20 years are designed by an engineer because Florida building code requires that," she said. FIRM, as the group is known, has been battling state insurer-of-last-resort Citizens Property Insurance Corp. for several years with success. The group has by all accounts saved Keys homeowners millions of dollars. But Gov. Rick Scott's edict to eliminate some 678,000 policies from Citizens'books to reduce the state's risk presents new challenges. So much so that Keys officials have been exploring the idea of creating a insurance company specific to Monroe County windstorm policyholders. "There's no way to move forward until this study is done. Right now the models say the same thing. Until we prove they're inaccurate, they'll continue to say the same thing," Mannix said. Citizens holds about 1.5 million policies statewide, including 25,807 on 27,951 Keys properties, according to FIRM.

Ileana RosLehtinen, a Miami Republican who represents the Keys. Ros-Lehtinen, along with fellow South Florida congressmen Mario Diaz-Balart and David Rivera, met with NOAAAdministrator Jane Lubchenco on Aug. 1 to talk about the future of Aquarius, located at Conch Reef off the Upper Keys. Unless about $2 million to $3 million in funding in the federal budget is appropriated for the Aquarius, the renowned underwater research lab could close for good in December. RosLehtinen indicated Lubchenco won't change her mind about Aquarius funding. "NOAA's plan to move away from manned ocean exploration in favor of robotic and sensor-driven data will essentially be taking the humanity out of science, conservation and research," Ros-Lehtinen said. "This will cause an irreparable damage to vital ocean investigations." The undersea lab in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary has allowed scientists to live and work underwater for missions that typically last seven to 10 days. It is the only operational underwater habitat of its kind left. Fabien Cousteau, grandson of Jacques Cousteau who designed Conshelf, the first underwater habitat scuba dived to meet with ocean pioneer Sylvia Earle, part of the team aboard Aquarius for its July mission. No more missions are on the calendar. The Aquarius Foundation, launched by Upper Keys resident Debra Illes, has started a campaign to raise enough money to allow Aquarius to remain active with private donations. "We have received considerable support from a wide range of people," Illes said Tuesday. AJuly 21 benefit at the History of Diving Museum was moderately successful, she said. More events are being considered for upcoming months. An online campaign at www.Indiegogo.com had raised nearly $2,400 as of press time Tuesday. The One World One Ocean organization also has joined the effort to keep Aquarius running. Keynoter staff contributed to this report.Congressional delegation lobbies NOAAAssociated PressMARINE RESEARCHGriffiths pushing renewed membershipMonroe County School Board Vice Chairman Andy Griffiths plans to renew his fight to convince his colleagues to spend $15,000 on an annual membership to the Florida School Board Association. The board let its membership expire in 2009, saying it wasn't worth the money. The organization provides resources to districts through networking and, mostly, by influencing state education legislation and policies. Griffiths says the impetus to re-up is a bill for $6,000 from School Boards Association Executive Director Wayne Blanton for his brief work on the recent search for a new Florida Keys public schools superintendent. The board has contested the bill, which Griffiths says Blanton will waive if the district rejoins the trade group. "If we would just get back into the fold of FSBA," Griffiths says, "He would charge us zero. I'll have to talk with Wayne directly and make that offer to the board at some future point." Griffiths recruited Blanton to organize the search that in June culminated with the selection of Mark Porter, who started on Aug. 1. But prior to that, in April, Blanton was let go following complaints from the 22-person board-appointed search committee that he was holding up the process. Griffiths says the value of belonging to the School Boards Association is "to know what goes on outside of Monroe County. I carefully watch all the platforms of the different groups in Florida because I don't want to see something detrimental to us." He likens statewide funding to a balloon: "You poke a finger in somewhere, it comes out somewhere else. Somebody wins, somebody loses." At a board meeting on July 31, Chairman John Dick continued to question the value of membership. But Griffiths urged him to change his mind, noting that the eight Florida school districts ahead of Monroe in terms of student test scores "are all members." "All the districts that are behind us are members too," Dick responded. Board member Robin Smith-Martin, recalling attendance at an organization function, says he was "surprised and offended by the corporate lobbyists that were there. I think they need to get their act together like we do." Griffiths acknowledges the likely opposition: "The chairman of the School Board has Keys dropped out of board group in 2009MONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSFormer radio staffer charged Aformer employee of the Great Marathon Radio Co., which broadcasts WGMX 94.3-FM and WFFG 1600-AM, was jailed Monday, accused of stealing more than $150,000 from the company.

EDITORIALMissed chance with designsLETTERS TO THE EDITORMore understandingIn the past few years, I have had, in and out of the company of my exwife, the humbling experience of using an EBTfood-stamp card (grateful does not describe how one feels not having to worry how to pay to eat). We used to shop nearly exclusively at Albertson's. Why? Prices and customer service. The Albertson's staff never hesitated to assist my ex-wife or myself in checking the EBTbalances (I do not have one anymore). It looked to be as difficult and time consuming as scanning something to check the price. Publix, on two separate visits, would only check the balance with a purchase. Winn-Dixie insists on the same. I accompanied my ex-wife to Winn-Dixie a couple of days before her balance was to be refilled. I tried expressing my concerns. We wanted deli sandwiches and without the cash in pocket, we would have to game the card would have enough credit (unless we made a minor purchase to check). Either way, no credit, no cash, non-returnable deli sandwiches and I would end up talking to the police. I felt as if we were being dismissed and given the attitude that I needn't shop there. I was also given the impression that if I had been wearing less-clean clothes (i.e., homeless), the manager wouldn't have been polite. I do not know if this is the store policy that you must purchase something before obtaining the balance. If so, the policy should be changed. In the economy of today, we can only hope that the people at Winn-Dixie do not need to ask for any type of aid and then be treated as we were without any compassion, kindness or understanding.

Kevin Woodland MarathonWatch your seafoodArecent investigation by the Oceana Foundation, an ocean conservation group, showed that in South Florida, one in three grocery stores, restaurants and sushi venues served fraudulently labeled seafood in their establishments. If this study is correct, we at the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Assoc-iation find the results unacceptable. We fully support enforcement efforts requiring truthful labeling and representation of all seafood products. It is essential that restaurants protect themselves and their customers by finding traceable and reliable seafood suppliers and providers. We also strongly recommend that all restaurant patrons become informed consumers. They should expect to be given properly labeled and correctly handled seafood at each and every dining experience, but they should do a little checking on their own. Ask restaurants about their seafood, where it comes from and how they track it to ensure freshness. Imported food products should be rigorously monitored, inspected and certified. To be sure, the shorter a supply chain, the more consumers and restaurateurs can be confident that they are being served the freshest and properly labeled seafood. For example a "Fresh from Florida" designation by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is a good starting point for consumers. The Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association works diligently to protect, educate and promote consumers and the industry. We believe those who knowingly and willfully misrepresent the identity of any food or food product should be dealt the maximum penalty that the law allows. Carol Dover, CEO Florida Restaurant, Lodging Association Tallahassee FIU architecture students let imaginations run wild, but they needed better directionPicture a three-story observation deck floating over the blue-green waters of Moser Channel just off Pigeon Key. Imagine an underwater tunnel, roofed in glass, with Pigeon Key diners seated at tables while reef fish and sharks swim overhead. If you've seen Kevin Costner's sea sci-fi epic, "Waterworld," released in 1995, you've got a head start in trying to figure out what Florida International University students imagined as the future for Pigeon Key and the old Seven Mile Bridge. The students delivered their "Imagine07" project last week, funded in part by county taxpayers and inkind donations from the nonprofit group Friends of Old Seven. To be fair, the college students weren't given any limitations on letting their imaginations fly as they envisioned future uses for the historic island and the century-old Henry Flagler bridge that links the tiny island to Marathon. But the county (or their faculty advisor) should have explained the Keys'environmental realities and then sent them off to dream. The Friends of Old Seven missed a wonderful opportunity here and that's too bad. Some of what these architecture and design students envisioned just doesn't fit. The Keys are about living with nature, not trying to conquer it through brute force. Perhaps the most egregious examples are designs that envision underwater aquariums, sort of like you see in northern climes where colorful reef fish can only be experienced by looking through a glass wall enclosing a heated and domed pool. Walking through a glass tunnel under the water may be a cool experience for the uninitiated in Pittsburgh, say, or Atlanta, but why bother with such a colossal expense when the Keys offer the real thing? We live in what is already the dive capital of North America and, some would argue, one of the three most accessible places on earth to experience reef ecosystems up close. And you don't even have to be scuba certified. Aswim mask and fins is all the investment needed to experience this up close. We don't want or need big glass aquariums, or threedecker observation platforms, or electric people movers carrying visitors on a Disneyland ride to Pigeon Key. Not all of the designs are as off base or environmentally insensitive. Afew even envision getting visitors closer to the water with piers and wooden walkways rather than grandiose sky platforms. For those who recall "Waterworld," remember it was a $200 million boondoggle (the most expensive film made in Hollywood up to that time and a boxoffice bust). There was an environmental message about global warming buried in all that expensive Hollywood movie glitz, only it was the wrong inspiration for these college students to use for Pigeon Key and saving the old Seven from possible full closure.Sheriff's Office tightens take-home policyThe Monroe County Sheriff's Office has made significant changes to its policy allowing all deputies to take home their patrol cars. Any deputy hired who lives outside Monroe County will have to use his or her own vehicle to get to and from work. Also, any deputy currently on the force who moves to Miami-Dade County cannot take his or her cruiser home at the end of the shift. The new policy went into effect on June 1. "The goal is to get all our cars back into the county," said Chief Lou Caputo, head of the Sheriff's Office Law Enforcement Bureau. The move will not immediately impact deputies already living outside Monroe County, said Col. Rick Ramsay. Those deputies are still allowed to take their patrol cars home, and Sheriff's Office leadership would give them six months notice in the event that policy changes. Ramsay said the Sheriff's Office wants to "phase cars out of Dade County through attrition." But he said it would be unfair to subject veteran deputies living outside the Keys to the new policy right now. "They're actually getting six months protection they didn't have before," said Ramsay, who is running for sheriff this year. "We're setting the tone for new people in the future. But we don't want 20 qualified officers to quit in one month." Ramsay and Caputo said the idea of letting deputies living in Miami-Dade take home their work cars was in part a recruiting incentive implemented more than 20 years ago to attract qualified officers in Florida City and Homestead to work for the Sheriff's Office. "We didn't have much of an applicant pool back then," Ramsay said. But now, anywhere from 50 to 60 percent of the 174 sworn officers working for the Sheriff's Office live in MiamiDade, and the Sheriff's Office wants more of its officers to live in the Keys, Ramsay said. The change in the takehome car policy was negotiated between the Sheriff's Office and the local chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police, Caputo said. Ramsay said overall, the Sheriff's Office, and most state police agencies, view taking home cars as an effective policy. The other alternative is to leave cars at the station and have officers from all shifts using the same car. This puts a strain on the vehicles and shortens the number of years they can be used on patrol, Ramsay said. "This way we can get four or five years out of our patrol cars. Then they can become unmarked vehicles and be used by our detectives and administrative staff," Ramsay said. He added that it is also good for neighborhood security when deputies park their cars at home. According to the current policy, officers living in Miami-Dade cannot take their cars past the Snapper Creek Expressway Service Plaza, which is 38 miles from the Monroe County line. Deputies who live north of there can drive their patrol cars as far as the Florida Highway Patrol station at the service plaza, and drive their personal vehicle home from there. Also, the out-of-county policy applies only to deputies serving in Key Largo and Islamorada. All deputies serving the Lower and Middle Keys who live in Miami-Dade can only drive their patrol cars as far north as the Plantation Key substation. Those deputies have the option of parking their personal vehicle at the substation and picking up their patrol car there, Ramsay said.The idea is to get cars back to KeysLAW ENFORCEMENT DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.com

Wednesday,August 8,2012 7A Keynoter KeysNet.com Business2nd exploratory well comes up dryAsecond deep-water exploratory well in the Gulf of Mexico has proved a bust, Cuba's state oil company said Monday, dealing another blow to the island's dreams of petroleum riches. The drilling operation carried out by PC Gulf, a subsidiary of Malaysia's Petronas, and Gazpromneft of Russia, concluded July 31 off the western province of Pinar del Rio, Cuban state oil company Cubapetroleo said in a statement. Analysis of the findings revealed an "active petroleum system that could extend to other parts of the four blocs contracted by PC Gulf and Gazpromneft, and even beyond their limits," read the statement, which was published by Communist Party newspaper Granma. "Nevertheless, at that point the rocks are very compact and do not have the capacity to deliver significant quantities of petroleum and gas," it continued, "so it cannot be qualified as a commercial discovery." Exploratory wells commonly turn out to be dry or not viable, and experts say production was always at least three to five years out from any confirmed strike. Still, it was disappointing news for a cash-strapped country hoping for an economic lifeline, after another well sunk by Spanish company Repsol came up dry in May. "Alot of people have been very naive in thinking that an oil-rich Cuba was going to materialize overnight, and that is not the case," said Jorge Pinon, former president of Amoco Oil Latin America and now an energy expert at the University of Texas. "You don't just turn the faucet on overnight." An estimated 5 billion to 9 billion barrels of crude may be buried off Cuba deep below the Gulf of Mexico, according to geologic surveys, and authorities are hoping the reserves could be even bigger. Cubapetroleo said PC Gulf and Gazpromneft will study the geologic information gained from drilling the 15,300-foot well to evaluate the potential of other parts of the four blocs they have contracted. Ultradeep-water drilling is technologically challenging and extremely costly, with the platform that drilled out the two wells this year being leased out at $500,000 a day. In Cuba's case, just finding a suitable rig was a huge obstacle. To comply with the 50year-old U.S. embargo, Repsol and Petronas had to turn to the Scarabeo-9, a oneof-a-kind vessel built with less than 10 percent U.S.made parts to avoid triggering sanctions. After Repsol opted out of a contract to sink a second well and Monday's announcement of Petronas'failed try, the massive semi-submersible now passes to Venezuelan state oil company PDVSAfor an attempt near the island's western tip. Sonangol of Angola has an option to drill next, but after that the Scarabeo-9 is under contract to drill off Brazil with no word on when it might again be available to return to Cuban waters. "The difficult part is that they're going to lose what I call the shovel. Once the Scarabeo-9 finishes, that's it," Pinon said. "It's going to take a long time again for ... anybody else to drill additional exploratory wells."Expert: Time running out for ScarabeoBy PETER ORSIAssociated PressOIL DRILLING BUSINESS BRIEFSFinance seminar is this SaturdaySarah Cizmas, an Edward Jones financial advisor in Marathon, has scheduled an educational seminar, "How to Raise a Money-smart Child," for Saturday at 10 a.m. at her office in the Town Square Mall, 11400 Overseas Highway, Suite 220.

It's the firm's 10th office. Timothy Thomes will anchor the office, which will focus on business litigation, trust and estates, and real estate law. The Gunster firm was founded in 1925.Court upholds airline passengers'rightsThe government can require airlines to show consumers a total ticket price that includes taxes and fees in print and online ads, the U.S. Court of Appeals said last week, rejecting an industry challenge to a series of consumer protection regulations. The Transportation Department, which issued the regulations last year, has the authority to regulate "unfair and deceptive" airline industry practices, the three-member panel said in its ruling issued July 31. The ruling also covers two other regulations: A requirement that airlines allow consumers who purchase tickets more than a week in advance the option of canceling their reservations without penalty within 24 hours after purchase, and a ban on airlines increasing the price of tickets or baggage fees after tickets have been bought. The rules had been challenged by Spirit and Southwest airlines, with the support of two major airline industry trade associations. Prior to the new regulations, airlines could advertise a base airfare and separately disclose taxes and fees, which consumers would have to add together to arrive at a total price. Under the new regulations, airlines can still breakdown the price of a ticket to show taxes and fees, but the total price must be displayed in the largest type size and be the most prominent price in the ad or on the web page. The airlines argued that there was nothing deceptive about listing taxes separately, which they said is the general norm in the U.S. economy. But Judge David Tatel, who was appointed by President Bill Clinton, wrote in the decision that there's nothing in the regulations that would force airlines to hide the taxes. As an example, he pointed to Spirit's website, where taxes are clearly displayed under the heading: "The government's cut." Judge Raymond Randolph agreed the transportation department has the authority to require the ads display a total ticket price but wrote in a dissent that he disagreed with the portion of the regulation that requires a larger typeface be used for the total price than for taxes and fees. He said the regulation restricts the airlines' political speech. Randolph and the third judge on the panel, Karen Henderson, were appointed by President George H.W. Bush. Officials for Southwest and Spirit said the two airlines are already complying with the regulations. "While we're disappointed in the court's decision, it really doesn't further impact us," said Brad Hawkins, a Southwest spokesman.All ticket fees and taxes must be shownBy JOAN LOWYAssociated PressCONSUMERS WILLETT Photo courtesy ASSOCIATED PRESS

Stanley battled seasickness during the U.S. team's long journey across the Atlantic. Stanley obviously recovered. He stood just 5-foot-6.5 inches, but in front of the London crowd he pressed 286.5 pounds, snatched 286.5 pounds and clean and jerked 347 pounds for an astonishing total of 920. It was 100 pounds more than the secondplace finisher. The performance was impressive. But Richard, owner of Bud n Mary's Marina in Islamorada, said all these years later, he is more impressed by his father's Olympic spirit, which was alive despite having witnessed the worst atrocities of the war three years earlier while on the front lines of combat in the Philippines. In Miami, Stanley is remembered by many as the 27-year owner of the Bowling Palace. He died in 1997 at age 72. But Richard said the legacy of his dad's life is worth telling now with cheating prevalent in sports and money often outweighing raw passion for one's game. Stanley competed at a time when nobody in the United States was using steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs, although there were suspicions that other countries were cheating.

McDowell, 37, was the Conch boys JVhead coach last season. He has been an assistant girls coach several times in the last decade. Neda Preston, the school's new athletic director, announced the selection Monday. McDowell succeeds Tez Waters, who stepped aside late last season because of illness. She succeeded Randy Fabal, who quit after one game. McDowell and boys head coach Anton Lopez coached the girls team in last season's playoffs. The Conchs lost in the regional quarterfinals to Ransom Everglades and finished with a 7-6 record. "I wanted to be the coach," said McDowell, who was persuaded by Lopez to apply for the position. "I like teaching the kids how to play together that's how you win." He also said he wants to turn around a program that has often been sullied by parental interference and temperamental players. AKey West native, McDowell played guard for the 1993-94 Conchs. He has long been a coach in the Key West Police Athletic League. Working for the city's Community Services Department, he helps tend the ball fields and beaches. Preston also announced that Shanta McLeod will be the girls JVbasketball coach and J.P. Garcia will be the JV football coach. Jacqueline Goldstein and Ainsley Tibbett were named as cheerleading coaches.He inherits squad that ended 7-6By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST SPORTSLozano helps lead club squadCoral Shores High School lacrosse standout Julia Lozano helped her summer travel team hoist a championship trophy at a July tournament. The squad from BDM Lacrosse which stands for Broward-Dade-Monroe went 7-0 to win its highschool division at the prestigious Heat Wave Lacrosse Tournament, played July 14 and 15 in Palm Coast. The BDM club includes elite players from Coral Shores, Palmer Trinity, Killian and Coral Reef high schools. Lozano scored a Coral Shores record with 90 goals last season as the Lady Hurricanes (12-4) claimed their third straight district championship. Lozano, entering her senior season, uses the summer competition to hone her skills. "You can't pick up your stick right before the season and expect to be at the top of your game," she said in an e-mail. Lozano says she plans to accept a scholarship offer from Stetson University, which signed Coral Shores 2012 graduate Cami Lopez as a defender for Stetson's first year as an NCAADivision 1 program.Lacrosse star joins forces with othersKeynoter StaffCORAL SHORES LACROSSE Photo by SALLY FRANKLINCoral Shores lacrosse player Julia Lozano carries the ball for her BDM summer team during a championship run at a July tournament in Palm Coast.Blackfins strong, dolphin are so-soThe offshore waters appear to be a dolphin angler's dream, with Sargasso weed and floating debris scattered everywhere. But someone forgot to tell the dolphin. Dolphin fishing remains sporadic. Hopefully it will improve with the passing of the full moon last week. Only the dolphin know for sure. If your fishing plans take you offshore, you may want to make your way toward the humps in the Middle Keys area for some pretty good action on blackfin tuna. They're taking lures, such as Billy baits and cedar plugs, trolled way back in your spread. Most of the blackfins are in the eightto 10-pound range. If you're willing to put in the extra effort to drop jigs deep, you're likely to come up with larger specimens in the 15to 20-pound class. The reef action remains steady for yellowtail and mangrove snapper, with the occasional mutton still spicing the slicks. Most charter captains note the fish bite for about 45 to 60 minutes before it slows way down. The best tactic is to move and find another batch of hungry fish. On the patch reefs, the mangrove bite is very good with lots of fish in the oneto four-pound category. The usual assortment of snapper baits works fine pieces of ballyhoo and small, live pinfish. There's also decent action on cero mackerel, with some pushing the 10-pound mark. The best bait is live ballyhoo presented on a smaller treble hook with a trace of wire tossed back in your snapper slick. The bite can be explosive, with the ceros skyrocketing your bait. Early indications are lobstering is very good and certainly should remain so into the fall.

He was born in 1925 in Wisconsin and grew up in Detroit, where his immigrant parents from Poland struggled to make ends meet during the Great Depression. Young Stan was teased because his mother worked as a maid at his school. One day, his older brother gave him a Charles Atlas weightlifting book. By his teens, he was called Superman of Detroit for his amazing strength. By 1942, at 17, he burst onto the national scene with a third at the senior nationals as a lightweight.War intervenesBut as he was hitting his prime, along came World War II. Stanczyk was drafted into the Army in 1943. He eventually was sent to the Philippines with the 25th Division to fight in the 165day Luzon Campaign, in which Americans and Filipinos fought together against the Empire of Japan. It was hand-to-hand combat, Richard said. People were decapitated. My dad never talked much about the war. But what Richard would later find out about Stanleys service is that he won two bronze stars, a purple heart and other medals. After my dad had a stroke, a man called his home, Richard said. I answered the phone. The man said that he owed Stanley a long overdue thank you. As the story went, the man was severely wounded behind enemy lines during a reconnaissance mission. The commanding officer told Stanley to leave the man behind, but Stanley asked if he could please try to carry him. Stanley put the man on his shoulders and got him to the Medivac. Stanley kept up his training during his time in the Philippines by lifting buckets filled with cement, makeshift weights made for him by the Filipinos he befriended. After the Allied victory in 1945, Stanley became the first weightlifter to win three successive world titles in three different classes, setting himself up for the gold in 1948. When he returned home from the victorious Olympics, he moved to South Florida for the weather and set his sights on Hollywood. He bought a yellow 1949 Pontiac convertible station wagon with leopard-skin seat covers. And he acquired a chimpanzee. My dad wanted to follow in the footsteps of 1936 Olympian Johnny Weissmuller, who became Tarzan, Richard recalled. My dad wanted to be the next Tarzan. He got a screen test but didnt get the role. Stanley had the matinee good looks, but he was short. Later in life, he lamented that Hawaiian Harold Sakata, whom Stanley beat by 100 pounds to win the gold medal, ended up in the movies, playing Oddjob in James Bonds Goldfinger. Stanley would win three more world titles and a silver medal in the 1952 Olympic Games in Helsinki, Finland. He also competed in bodybuilding contests during this time, becoming Mr. Miami, Mr. All-South Florida and Mr. Florida. It was in Miami that he met his wife Dorothy, who was selling suntan lotion at a South Beach hotel. Family lore has it that Dorothy threw her sister in the pool so the good-looking guy would save her and they would meet.Dad hoped for the moviesFrom Olympics,1B Richard Stanczyk shows off stepdad Stanleys medals. alternative.

They also had the catch of a lifetime with a nine-foot, 300-pound marlin, which they released unharmed. Jennifer and James Moore, from St. Petersburg, had a great day catching blackfin tuna and dolphin with Capt.

Bob Crockett and mate Mike Rathbun, of FinnzUp Charters out of the 7 Mile Marina, tell us that Mike, Sara, Joe and Dean Kinsey from Albany N.Y., were a hoot to fish with and they caught a load of delicious snappers. Last week, the SeaSquared crew hosted groups and families from near and far Florida,and seven other states. We made several trips to the reef for excellent snapper fishing, with loads of mangroves and yellowtails to show for it. We also did three catch-andrelease shark fishing trips in Florida Bay. We managed to get all those trips in (losing only one) despite having a major emergency engine repair mid-week.

As soda consumption has declined over the past several years amid worries about the nation's obesity rates, the Coca-Cola Co., PepsiCo Inc. and Dr Pepper Snapple Group Inc. have worked to come up with sodas that have fewer calories but still taste good. So the Associated Press asked a panel that included a food blogger and Bruce Bozzi, who heads marketing at The Palm steakhouses, to go to its New York City headquarters to gauge how the latest generation of low-calorie sodas stack up to the originals. The verdict? Soft-drink makers have a long way to go. On tap for the taste test were: Pepsi Next, which has about half the calories of regular Pepsi at 60 calories per can. 10-calorie versions of Dr Pepper's Sunkist and A&W Root Beer, which are supposed to have a fuller taste than their zero-calorie, diet counterparts. Coca-Cola's Sprite Select and Fanta Select, which are made with natural sweeteners and have 70 calories a can, versus about 140 and 160 for regular Sprite and Fanta, respectively. Only Pepsi Next, which hit shelves in March, is available nationally. The rest are still being tested in select markets. When it comes to mimicking the original, Pepsi Next generally fared the best. As with most regular sodas, Pepsi is sweetened with highfructose corn syrup, which has the same nutritional value as sugar. Pepsi Next reduces the amount of highfructose corn syrup and calories and replaces it with artificial sweeteners like aspartame that are used in traditional diet sodas. But the similarities between Pepsi Next and Pepsi were a problem for some testers. Stephanie Klose, a food blogger for Serious Eats, said both tasted fake and overly sweet. "Pepsi is an overly sweet soda, so the whole brand colors the taste," said North Landesman, a middle school history teacher and self-proclaimed soda aficionado. "It's so sweet that the first sip is always really good. But the more you drink, the worse it tastes." In a statement, Pepsi noted it has tested Next extensively and that its research shows that the drink "meets or exceeds taste expectations." Another opinion was unanimous among the taste testers: nobody liked Fanta either the regular or the mid-calorie version made with stevia, a zero-calorie sweetener that comes from a South American plant. Will Carlough, who is loyal to regular Coke, grimaced after taking sips of each. "I can't tell the difference," said Carlough, a 34year old programmer at social media site Meetup.com. Sprite Select, which is also made with stevia, also was deemed too fake. The "weird" aftertaste gave it away immediately from the original Sprite, which the panel loved. "It tasted like a dissolving packet of aspartame," Klose, the food blogger, said. Landesman, the teacher, compared Sprite Select to an open can of regular Sprite that had been sitting in the fridge for four days. "I would rather drink tap water than this," he said. Bozzi, a diet soda loyalist, didn't like Sprite Select either and said he wouldn't drink it again. Still, he said he'd be willing to sacrifice taste for the right drink made with a natural sweetener and no calories. Coca-Cola Co., which has previously noted that the Selects are only being tested in four cities to gauge demand, declined to comment.New products get low marks from tastersAssociated PressDIET SODA LIVING BRIEFSSummer Jam helps Wesley HouseWesley House Family Services has its third annual Summer Jam at the Key West Harbour, 6000 Peninsular Ave., on Aug. 18th.
