KeysIslandProperties.com 305-296-1234 Keys voter turnout is highThe limitation of early voting this year to eight days appears to have had a significant effect on the number of votes cast so far. While the number of absentee ballots is on par with counts from the 2008 presidential election, earlyvoting numbers have dropped significantly, from 13,641 four years ago the same day to 8,644 as of 3:30 p.m. Friday. That's more than a 36 percent drop, though polls are open until 7 tonight. The 11,146 absentee ballot count as of Friday was more on par with the 12,443 total from 2008. Still, as of Friday afternoon, overall, 38.3 percent of Monroe County's 51,910 registered voters had voted through either early balloting or via absentee ballot. The Key West elections office had logged the most early votes at 2,799. The Key Largo elections office had 2,068; the library on Big Pine Key 1,560; Marathon elections office 1,409; and Islamorada library 808. Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Harry Sawyer, serving out his final term after 24 years in office, gained national prominence this summer for fighting a mandate from Gov. Rick Scott and the Legislature to reduce the number of early voting days from a maximum of 14 to eight, and to increase it from eight hours per day to 12. Deputy Supervisor of Elections Joyce Griffin pointed to the reduction in days as a reason voting totals are down this year. "The governor shortened the days and we're not seeing the flow in those early morning hours," she said. "For people that work two or three jobs ... in those eight days, people might not have a day off. If he wanted to increase voter turnout, he should have lengthened the amount of days."

But that doesn't mean he isn't in trouble with his home agency. Michael Wesley, 42, reportedly threatened a Key West police officer, interfered with an investigation, denied having identification and resisted arrest. But he was never charged. Police Chief Donie Lee acknowledged his officers have "wide latitude" in making arrests but said he doesn't agree with what transpired in the case of Wesley. "Based on the report, I would have arrested the offduty police officer," Lee said. "Having said that, officers have a wide latitude of discretion in deciding whether to make an arrest. They don't always use it wisely. This appears to [be] one of those cases. I'm sure the fact that he was a police officer factored into their decision." According to a report from Officer David Kouri, the fracas happened around 1 a.m. at United and Reynolds streets. As Key West police were placing Wesley companion Angela Henry into protective custody because she was highly intoxicated, Wesley let officers know he's a cop. He then got belligerent, the report says. As Henry was being put into custody, Wesley "put his hand" on Officer Thomas Clark's chest, prompting Kouri to tell him, "Even though he is a police officer, if he touched Ofc. Clark again, I would arrest him." Next, Wesley got on the phone with Ernie DeLoach, a retired Key West police officer whom he said is a friend. DeLoach, in turn, spoke to Officer Anna Dykes, who was at the scene, and told her to "do what you have to do," according to Kouri's report. Once Henry was in the patrol car, "Wesley continued to stand directly in front of our car and yell vulgarities at us," including an expletiveridden apparent threat to harm Dykes.Police chief says arrest was warrantedKEY WESTBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com Airto clearin county theft?Assistant Monroe County State Attorney Mark Wilson says David Sinclair, a suspended county employee accused of stealing from the county, might turn himself in Tuesday to face charges of petty theft and official misconduct. No charges had been filed by Friday. Sinclair, suspended on Oct. 26 from his $43,000a-year job as a landfill operator at the Key Largo Transfer Station on Card Sound Road, is accused of giving customers handwritten tipping-fee receipts, then manipulating the computer monitoring process by inputting fake receipts, then pocketing the cash payments. Wilson said he's giving Sinclair the opportunity to come clean about the duration and scope of the alleged scheme. Sinclair's attorney, Mike Crimella, couldn't be reached for comment Friday. Wilson said he can prove only the theft of $22 based on an apparently fake receipt given to a State Attorney's Office investigator looking into the allegations. The tipping rate at the transfer station is around 6 cents per pound of trash, with a minimum fee of $6.18. Wilson says he suspects the alleged theft has been going on for some time. Another landfill operator, Bud Bates, was also implicated but was found dead in his home on Transylvania Avenue in Key Largo home on Oct. 29. Sinclair is the one who found him. Wilson says the county Clerk of the Court's Office would conduct an audit of transfer-station operations following his investigation. Sinclair was hired in August 1999 and earns $43,952 per year. He can request a hearing on any discipline meted out. As for the possible charges, petty theft is a misdemeanor, official misconduct a felony.Sinclair may turn self in this TuesdayKEY LARGOBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comDengue found in Central FloridaAlthough Key West leads the state in cases of mosquito-born dengue fever, a case reported Tuesday in Seminole County was deemed locally acquired. Monroe County Health Department spokeswoman Chris Tittel said his counterparts from that area, around Sanford and Orlando, have been in touch with him looking for ideas on handling the public-relations end of raising awareness. Also known as breakbone fever, dengue symptoms include high fever, aching bones, headaches, pain behind the eyes and a rash. More than 100 million people worldwide have contracted the disease. In 2009 and 2010, there were 93 confirmed cases of dengue fever originating in Old Town Key West. In some cases, affected tourists didn't notice they had it until returning home. Those who got it in Key West fully recovered. When someone is found to have dengue, part of the screening process includes questioning the patient on recent out-of-area travel.

Delays continue on Marathon courthouseAsecond batch of mold has pushed the completion for an ongoing remodel of the Marathon courthouse out to early 2013, according to Monroe County Project Management Director Jerry Barnett. "We plan to have it done ... by February or March. We're hoping sooner, but I wouldn't count on it," he said. "The total renovation is going to be just over $1 million. All the numbers aren't available because change orders are not all done." The county discovered mold and asbestos in the court building at mile marker 48.5 oceanside while in the midst of a project last year to renovate it and replace dated trailers with two new ones. The first round was removed by May well beyond the initial renovation completion date of Feb. 28, 2012. But Barnett said workers found "a second bunch of mold" and that the building's heating, ventilation and air conditioning system had to be replaced. They came in at roughly $240,000, he said. Initial renovation was estimated to cost $900,000. Then the first mold patches were found, and that was another $165,000. Additionally, Barnett said there have been "a series of change orders" at the site, including replacing interior doors that did not meet fire code, as well as redoing the entry to the building. "We're revising the main entry into the building. It didn't work right with [Americans with Disabilities Act] compliance so we had to make some changes for that," he said. Aside from the courtroom, the office area behind it is being remodeled. "We ended up adding the renovation of [acting Circuit Court Judge Ruth Becker's] office and bathroom because of the mold. Some of the problems don't show up until you tear out the wall," Barnett said. Becker has been holding court in trailers installed as part of the renovation. The county purchased a shedlike structure to house security checkpoint equipment during construction. Courts Administrator Holly Elomina said the county continues to hold monthly traffic court, as well as some jury selection, in the Monroe County Commis-sion chambers at the Marathon Government Center while construction is ongoing. After the mold was found, County Commissioner George Neugent suggested a large complex to replace the courthouse with a new one sharing space with the Sheriff's Office substation and Tax Collector's Office. Those two offices now share a building adjacent to the courthouse. County staff presented preliminary estimates ranging from $7.4 million to $23 million, depending on the size of such a project. But the commission decided on a fix to keep the courthouse operational for several more years. "We're hoping that the building will be not just the bare minimum, but substantially appropriate for its use for the next 10 to 15 years," Barnett said.More mold is discovered in renovationMIDDLE KEYS Keys Insurance Services5800 Overseas Highway Suite 43 MarathonCall me today to see how much you can save with Allstates good student discount.

It pits Republican Holly Merrill Raschein, a longtime legislative aide who lives in Key Largo, against Democrat Ian Whitney, who runs the Innkeepers Association in Key West. The winner replaces Democrat Ron Saunders of Key West, who is term-limited out. The News Service says "the district is centered on the Florida Keys, but includes the rest of Monroe County and parts of southern Miami-Dade County. "Both candidates have raised substantial amounts of money, though Raschein has pulled in almost $242,000 compared to nearly $105,000 for Whitney. "Democrats had a slight registration edge in the district 38 percent of voters to 34.7 for Republicans but [presidential nominee John] McCain carried the district in 2008 by more than 6 percent points.

Logging onto the mugshot page of the Sheriff's Office website, updated hourly, is a common practice perhaps guilty pleasure throughout the Keys. Herrin says the page, available at www.keysso.net receives around 25,000 daily page views, or 750,000 per month. For several years, there has been a link from the mug-shot page to two pages with advertisements for attorneys and bail bondsmen. There are nine current advertisers, and at $250 per ad per month, over the course of a year they generate $25,000. Wednesday, Herrin took it to a new level: The agency went live with a banner-ad system on the home page and has already sold $2,500 worth of ad space to defense attorney John Musca; that's $500 per month per ad. Musca's ad reads in bold type, "Arrested? Criminal defense attorneys click or call 24/7." "We're going to see how it goes," Herrin says. "I've always thought those pages lent themselves to advertising just because of the traffic." "Basically it's a rotating banner ad. Each time it refreshes, a new ad loads." Key West-based defense attorney Donald Barrett advertises with the Sheriff's Office by way of the "list of attorneys" link and is considering purchasing one of the new banner ads. "I have gotten business from that advertising," Barrett says, adding, "I wouldn't say it's a great deal of business, but some." He asks clients how they were referred but doesn't distinguish between the Internet in general and the Sheriff's Office website specifically. "I continue to do it month after month so I continue to find a value," Barrett says.Agency expands offerings with new banner adsSHERIFF'S OFFICE By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com

Feds: Dismiss Wisteria caseAttorneys for the United States government have asked a Florida court to dismiss Roger Bernstein's claim to ownership of 22-acre Wisteria Island off Key West. Bernstein's FEB Corp. purchased the island in the 1960s and about five years ago began a push to develop the property into a resort similar to the adjacent upscale Sunset Key in Key West Harbor. Bernstein wants to build 35 market-rate homes; 35 transient homes; five workforce houses; a bar, restaurant and retail component; and upland facilities to support a field of more than 100 mooring balls. When he navigated the complicated Monroe County development process, the question came up if he even owns the property. The result is a federal lawsuit filed in August by Bernstein against the federal government in U.S. District Court in Miami. U.S. Attorney Wifredo Ferrer is acting as the government's counsel. In a lawsuit response filed Oct. 29, Assistant U.S. Attorney Anthony Pogorzelski traces the history of Wisteria formerly known as Christmas Tree Island back to before the Civil War. He says Bernstein's "predecessors in interest had actual knowledge of the United States'claim of ownership over the property in question as early as 1951." Because of a 12-year statute of limitation governing Bernstein's claim under 1972's Quiet Title Act, Pogorzelski's motion asks District Court Judge Jose Martinez and Magistrate Chris McAliley to dismiss the suit. In 1952, the Florida Internal Improvement Trust Fund board transferred title of the property to Paul Sawyer. Then Bernie Papy bought it, then Bernstein bought it from Papy. But before the sale was recorded, on Sept. 27, 1951, the U.S. Navy sent a letter to the Trust Fund board asserting "the Department of the Navy considers Frankfurt Bank, the shoals adjacent thereto and the spoil area in question as being the property of the United States."KEY WESTBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com

This week, city crews installed a four-way stop at 12th Street and Seidenberg Avenue and removed the stop signs at 12th Street and Harris Avenue. The goal is slow traffic around the nearby Poinciana Elementary School, 1407 Kennedy Drive. Safe Routes to School is a federally authorized program launched in 2005 that has provided more than $600 million to state departments of transportation to facilitate a threefold goal: Enable and encourage children, including those with disabilities, to walk and bicycle to school. Make bicycling and walking to school a safer and more appealing transportation alternative to motoring, thereby encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle from an early age. Facilitate the planning, development and implementation of projects and activities that will improve safety and reduce traffic, fuel consumption and air pollution around schools. For Key West, that has amounted to more than $1.2 million in Florida Department of Transportation funding that has or will pay for two major projects. Construction is in progress on Stock Island of a sidewalk running along College Road meant to ease access to Gerald Adams Elementary, with a late November or early December completion date. For Poinciana Elementary, the Key West City Commission is expected, in November, to approve a bid from contractor Charley Toppino and Sons Inc. to construct sidewalks along Duck Avenue, "bulb" sidewalk corners at intersections to calm traffic in the surrounding neighborhood, and replace hazardous driveways, among other things. The estimated cost is $600,000.Goal:Increase safety around Poinciana schoolKEY WEST By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comNEWS BRIEFSFDLE reports crime reductionThe number of murders and forcible sex offenses rose by 1.5 percent during the first six months of 2012 but declines in aggravated assault and robbery drove down the state's violent crime rate by 5.4 percent, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement reported Thursday. Those increases were offset by an 8 percent drop in robberies and a 5.4 percent drop in aggravated assaults, more common crimes. Nonviolent crimes dropped 3.6 percent. Notable exceptions to the downward trend were domestic-violence offenses. Domestic murder and forcible sodomy cases increased by 29.5 percent and 25.4 percent respectively. Domestic assaults declined, again reducing the overall number of domestic violence cases by 5.4 percent.

"The importance is that person did not leave Seminole County," Tittel said. "That would confirm it was locally acquired. If this person had been anywhere else, it wouldn't necessarily be locally acquired." There have also been cases reported in MiamiDade, Broward and Palm Beach counties, although Tittel said the Seminole case seems to be the first one reported outside of South Florida since the 1960s. Tittel said geography isn't necessarily indicative of anything because the carriers, Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, are present throughout the state. The best way to avoid dengue is to reduce the mosquito population. Anything that traps and holds water provides mosquitoes a place to deposit eggs. And it takes less than 48 hours in some cases for those eggs to become larvae.No Keys connectionFrom Dengue,1A That prompted Kouri to try to handcuff Wesley at one point even drawing his Taser. Once cuffed, "Wesley braced and pulled his right arm away, actively resisting being placed into custody," Kouri reports. Next Kouri, using Wesley's identification which he denied having but was found in his pocket contacted the Arlington Police Department to confirm Wesley's employment. Kouri reported that Arlington Lt. Ronald Kerr was "deeply apologetic and said he would assist in any way possible on their end." After that, Kouri told Wesley he wasn't going to be charged. "He said, Good, because there weren't any charges to begin with.'" Key West Officer Sean Brandenburg shot back: "Yes, there are several." Specifically, according to Kouri's report: He "interfered with an investigation, verbally threatened Officer Dykes and also resisted being placed into custody. I also [told supervisors] that Wesley accused Officer Clark of raping Henry while she was in protective custody." Arlington Police Chief Fred Ryan said his office will conduct an internal investigation into Wesley's behavior. "We're very concerned about the alleged conduct," he said. "It's not representative of the women and men of the Arlington Police Department."We're concerned'From Police,1A

Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYMystery surrounds injured manAJupiter man is fighting for his life at Ryder Trauma Center in Miami after being found early Sunday morning unconscious in a pool of blood on Caroline Street in Key West. Earl Weeks found Tom Houck, 44, near 710 Caroline St. around 1 a.m., following the Oct. 27 Fantasy Fest parade. Although Houck reportedly is in a coma with bleeding in his brain, Key West Police Officer Gabriel Garrido wrote in a report, "At this time, pending further information ... I have no evidence to believe Houck was a victim of a crime." But Houck's friend, local photographer Nick Doll, thinks Houck was beat up. He's using social media websites to solicit information about what might have happened. Doll says Houck was last seen at the Anne Street bar Shots and Giggles. "Please give any information you have on where you saw him or if you saw the beating take place," Doll pleads. Weeks told officers he thought Houck may be having a seizure and Garrido noted Houck "was moving up and down in a rhythmic motion," although he was unconscious. "Houck had blood pooled under his head and coming out of his right ear and right nostril," according to Garrido's report "Houck was breathing but unresponsive."He's found bloody after annual paradeKeynoter StaffKEY WEST MAN HOUCK www.keysnet.com

Bud Carr, a veteran Middle Keys angler who claimed many fishing firsts, died Wednesday in Marathon at age 94. He was born Jan. 24, 1918, in Brighton, Mass., the second of five children of Harry A. Carr Sr. and Mary Isabel (Nugent) Carr. He grew up in Massachusetts and New Jersey, and was a former state amateur boxing champ in New York and New Jersey. He worked at the Worthington Pump and Machinery Corp. in Harrison, N.J., and moved to Miami in 1946, then to the Florida Keys in 1949. He started out small and had his first charter business based in a canal off 15th Street oceanside. Later, his business was invited to be the first charter boat at the then-new Davis Docks, better known by its later name, Faro Blanco Marine Resort. And for 18 years he handled the charter business at the Buccaneer Lodge, which at the time was considered among the premier resorts in the Middle Keys. The Tranquility Bay Resort at mile marker 48.5 bayside now sits where the Buccaneer was. By 1972, Mr. Carr had moved his operations to Duck Key, where he remained until his recent hospitalization. His first exposure to Keys fishing came while he was a young man and operated a marina and boat yard in Daytona Beach, where he spent summers fishing returning the Keys in the fall, according to his family. In the 1950s and early s, he spent several weeks at a time during the summer fishing for marlin and tuna in the Bahamas, making Bimini his base, and became wellknown in international sportfishing circles. His career spanned more than 60 years. Some highlights, according to his family: He caught the first bluefin tuna in Florida waters, harpooned in Florida Bay off Craig Key, on May 10, 1950. He was the first in the Keys to fish with a kite, and among the first Keys guides to use live ballyhoo for sailfish. He invented the Ace outrigger snap, an improvement over the then-popular clothespin snap. In addition to his career as a fishing guide, Mr. Carr was known as a musician, playing piano, the organ and even the accordion at such venues as the Marathon Yacht Club and Sombrero Country Club, among other places. He was among the organizers of the Marathon Guides Association and served as the groups first president. He was also was a founding member of the Marathon Jaycees and was elected that organizations first president. He also helped build the Marathon Yacht Club with the late Chet Tingler and served the club as rear and vice commodore. For a number of years, Mr. Carr also served as president of the Conch Key Volunteer Fire Department. He is survived by his wife Gail and daughter Susan (Eric) Mindock of Playa del Rey, Calif. Another daughter, Catherine, died in 2009. Agathering in his memory is planned for 3 p.m. Sunday at the Carr home, 148 Indies Drive North, Duck Key.Over 60 years spent plying Keys watersMARATHONLongtime school aide diesThe Montessori Childrens School of Key West lost a family member on Oct. 21 when longtime classroom assistant Lorena Baker died in Miami. She had spent 26 of her 71 years helping out at the school. Most recently, she had been working with students in the Gumbo Limbo classroom on writing and reading. Lorena was always there with a compliment or words of encouragement, anticipating the schools needs and taking care of them, says school director Kim Livingston. The entire MCS family, present and past, have had the privilege of knowing Lorena. If you think about it, 26 years of working with children in our island community enabled Lorena to touch the lives of many. We are fortunate to have shared the time in her life. Mrs. Baker was born in Los Angeles, Calif. She began working as a classroom assistant at the Montessori in 1985 and continued up until her death except for when she took a four-year leave, from 2001 to 2005, to working in a Montessori school in northern California. At the time of her death, she lived in Key West with her son Ross Baker and grandson Roger, who attends the Montessori Charter School. She also is survived by two other children, six other grandchildren and a great-grandson. Acelebration of life is planned for 4:30 p.m. today at the 1221 Varela St. school campus. The school will create the Lorena Baker Peace Walk to permanently celebrate her life and dedication to the school. Commemorative bricks can be purchased to complete the walkway that will wind through the campus.Baker spent 26 years at MontessoriKEY WEST Harry BudCarr (left) and his dad,Harry A.Carr Sr.,show off this monster tuna they landed on May 10,1950.

They have given us so much of themselves for our freedoms, which we appreciate and sometimes take for granted. The accompanying display takes only a few minutes to do. I'm asking friends, family and businesses to show their pride by putting where it can be viewed by a few or a lot from Nov. 7 through Nov. 12, inside or out, whatever works the best for you. Some may have a tag of thank you or a picture of a vet, or be plain. All I'm asking is to take time and show your appreciation to our veterans. Thank you to a veterans and God bless the U.S.A. Rosemarie Broscius Marathon Editor's note: Veterans Day parades are planned for Nov. 10 in Marathon and Nov. 12 in Key West.Resort stay fantasticRecently we were given the privilege to stay in the penthouse at Hawks Cay Resort on Duck Key. We can't tell you what a joy it was for us to go there and relax after the fire at our stores. We were treated like royalty. Staying there was so great and it's so beautiful. Who needs to go out of the Keys to have fun, relax and have a great time? Not us. We enjoyed the great meals, the dolphins, the pools, the beauty, and everyone there treated us so kind. It was Bob's birthday that weekend and we just want to say thank you to the Hawks Cay staff for a great break from all our worries for a while. Bob, Linda Lee Byars MarathonNature sends a messageAccording to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, several months of 2012 had the highest monthly temperatures ever recorded in the United States, putting this year on track to be the warmest on record. Lower-than-average snowfall and precipitation have exacerbated droughts and wildfires in some of our communities. Yet, climate change was not an issue raised in any of the presidential debates. It barely has been mentioned at all this campaign season. Now Hurricane Sandy has snagged our attention from the political pundits and operatives who would normally dominate this final week before the election. It forced President Obama and Mitt Romney to alter their wellplanned campaign schedules. Is Mother Nature trying to tell us something? Ron Bernard MiamiRedirect campaign moneyHundreds of millions of dollars have been collected to support the presidential candidates in their campaigns to win the presidency. Now our country is faced with one of its worst disasters. The American Red Cross needs money desperately to help it meet the needs of Americans who are suffering as a result of Hurricane Sandy. I can't help but feel that hard-earned money has already been donated for the wrong purpose. Neil Sartori Wilton ManorsSatellites nearing useful ends yet Congress hasn't acted to replace crucial forecast toolsAs early as Oct. 22, when Hurricane Sandy was just a churning spout of turbulence in the distant Atlantic, the National Hurricane Center in Miami was already warning that it could develop into a storm with potentially devastating impact on the East Coast. One computer model showed Sandy growing into a monster hurricane with a lethal punch, aiming directly for the mid-Atlantic. You know the rest the worst-case scenario became reality. Today, that part of the country is reeling from the beating Sandy delivered. But residents can't say they didn't have sufficient time to prepare for the onslaught. They had at least one week. In places like Somerset County, N.J., officials warned on Tuesday of last week that a potential flood could develop if Sandy showed up on the state's doorstep. They issued alerts asking residents to start getting ready just in case. By Friday, the models were highly predictive, pointing to a mid-Atlantic hit around Delaware and New Jersey, with forceful winds, rising water and massive tides endangering coastal areas for hundreds of miles. And that's exactly what happened. The tireless effort by weather forecasters made a difference. All the work and money that goes into developing and maintaining a first-class meteorological service paid off. Here's what you may not know: Advance warnings, made possible by an array of images and information delivered by satellite, could be a thing of the past. Or, almost as bad, they could be less accurate, and less timely, due to a looming gap in our weather eye in the sky. The reasons are many, but it comes down to this: The satellites with pole-to-pole orbits crossing the equator that forecasters rely on are nearing their life expectancies and neither Congress nor the agencies that run the program, mainly the Department of Commerce, have made adequate preparation for a new generation of sky-rovers. Best estimate is that it may be 2017 before a replacement is launched, too late to avoid a crucial gap of at least one year. We won't bore you with the details but there are questions over cost estimates, satellite design, unfilled management vacancies, etc. Outside the Beltway, this is called fumbling and incompetence. The data these satellites deliver is indispensable to the work that goes into preparing accurate forecasts. Without it, forecasters can't predict how big a storm will be, where it will go (until it's rattling your windows), and how far its effects could be felt. In other words, they would be half-blind. That's a recipe for disaster. Aspokesman for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration told the New York Times recently that delivering timely and accurate storm forecasts remained a top priority. That's little comfort, however, considering that the under-secretary of commerce issued a memo calling the weather satellite system "this dysfunctional program that has become a national embarrassment." Not exactly reassuring. In natural disasters, the old adage that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure is spot-on. Government response after the event is crucial, but being prepared is even better. Florida and every other part of the country at the mercy of windstorms must be able to count on timely and accurate forecasts. We urge Congress and the next president to take this issue seriously. Miami Herald Youth center thankfulThe Marathon Recreation Center, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides recreational and educational activities for the youth of Marathon, would like to thank the following businesses for their kind donations and services to the center: BB&Tdonated paint and furniture, the United Way of the Florida Keys contributed afterschool materials, Marathon Garbage Service provided complimentary trash pickups and Dot Palm provided tree-trimming services. The cleanup project and improvements have enhanced the center's appearance and also instilled a sense of pride and motivation for our youth membership. We are very grateful for their support of our community and youths. Anthony Culver Executive director Keynoter photo by LARRY KAHNThe Marathon Recreation Center sits at the end of 33rd Street bayside,adjacent to Stanley Switlik Elementary School. Charterfirms donateWith a statewide push by Gov. Rick Scott for more charter schools, for-profit educational companies emerged as major players this election cycle. Miami-based Academica, which runs the small charter high school Key West Collegiate School on Stock Island, along with its subsidiary companies and executives, donated more than $220,000 to various candidates, including $60,000 to the Republican Party of Florida. Academica CEO Fernando Zulueta said his company "supports candidates who support the right of parents to choose the best education for their children." Locally, Collegiate board Chairman Todd German predicted that as lawmakers become increasing receptive to charter schools, the nontraditional, although publicly funded, institutions would continue to proliferate. There are six charter schools in the Florida Keys serving some 1,200 students. "There is a shift coming," German said. "State government is becoming ever-more receptive to the idea of charters schools and school choice. I don't see any problem with advocates donating to support their cause the same way [teachers] unions have been doing for decades." National, state and local teachers unions spent around $3.2 million on Florida races and committees this season, with most of that money going to Democrats.

Holler, Kelly WilsonMarr Properties/Kelly Wilson (*) vacant lot Businesses face taxing ques tionsTaxes and uncertainty. Those words sum up one of the biggest worries facing small business-owners. With the scheduled expiration on Dec. 31 of tax cuts enacted during the Bush administration, many people who run small companies don't know how much they'll be paying in tax in 2013. And many say that's why they have put off plans to hire and expand. The uncertainty is compounded by the fact that the outcome of the presidential and congressional elections is far from clear. President Obama and challenger Gov. Mitt Romney have different ideas about tax policy and it's hard to say whether Congress will act to stop the cuts from taking place. Here are some questions and answers about the tax cuts and how their expiration may affect small businesses. Question : Which scheduled tax increases are smallbusiness owners concerned about for the tax year that ends Dec. 31, 2013? Answer: The change that's expected to affect owners the most is an increase in personal tax rates. The top rate will rise to 39.6 percent from 35 percent. That would affect single taxpayers with income of $200,000 or more and households with income of $250,000 or more. Also expiring is the 15 percent rate on dividends. They will be taxed as ordinary income, which means business owners who receive dividends from their companies will likely be paying much more tax on this income than they have since 2003. Q How do personal tax rate increases affect smallbusiness owners? A. Most small businesses are what's known as "passthrough" or "flow-through" companies. That means the company itself doesn't pay taxes on what it makes. Owners report the income on their personal tax returns. These companies include sole proprietorships, partnerships and what are called S corporations (named for a provision of the federal tax code). The income is taxed according to the owner's tax rate. So single business owners with income of $200,000 or more and those whose households have income of $250,000 or more will see their taxes rise next year. There are no exact numbers on how many small businesses are pass-through companies, but the National Federation of Independent Business estimates that 75 percent of small businesses are in that category.Who's affected?Q. How many small-business owners would be subject to the highest rate? A No one has exact figures, but the number appears to be in the mid-single percentages. The staff of the congressional Joint Committee on Taxation estimates that next year, 940,000 taxpayers with profitable businesses will have tax rates of 36 percent of 39.6 percent. That represents 3.5 percent of the total number of taxpayers with profitable businesses. Another estimate comes from a survey by the lobbying group Small Business Majority. Five percent of the small business owners who participated in the survey said their household income was $250,000 or more. Q. What about large companies? A. Large companies pay their own income taxes, and owners then pay tax on any dividends they receive. This form of taxation is used by what are called C corporations. Those companies include large companies, like General Motors Co. and Apple Inc., but they also include small businesses. The top tax rate on C corporations is scheduled to drop to 28 percent next year from 35 percent in 2012. Q. So if a company can avoid the higher personal tax rate by organizing as a C corporation, why not do that? A. It's important to remember that C corporations have "double taxation" on the company's income and the dividends paid to the owners. And corporations are subject to more regulation than other types of companies. Owners need to comply with the laws of the states where a company is incorporated. Turning a company into any type of corporation means legal fees. And over the long run, it might make sense not to change a company's structure. "Tax rates can change year after year," says Charles Massimo, CEO of CJM Wealth Management, a financial advisory firm based in Melville, N.Y. He says owners need to choose a structure for their company based on their long-term needs.Where's Congress?Q Can Congress do something about this? A. In theory, yes. Congress is in recess until after the election. When lawmakers reconvene, they can consider stopping the increase or approving a smaller tax hike. However, there's a wide division between the political parties. Romney and the Republicans who control the House oppose the higher tax rates and say a higher tax bill will prevent small business owners from hiring. Obama and the Democrats who control the Senate believe a higher tax on the wealthiest people will help reduce the government's soaring budget deficit. Congress doesn't have to act by Dec. 31. Lawmakers can pass legislation at any point during 2013 or even after the year ends. Q. How is this uncertainty affecting business owners' decisions? A. Uncertainty about taxes has been one reason why many owners have been reluctant to take on new employees, according to surveys by the National Federation of Independent Business. "It's a major reason why people are not hiring now," says Jim Moniz, CEO of Northeast Wealth Management, a Braintree, Mass.based financial advisory firm that counts small business owners among its clients. Moniz says many of his clients who operate small companies have called him seeking advice about how to plan amid the uncertainty over taxes. "It ultimately affects how many people we hire and whether we expand," says Darin Feinstein, whose businesses include five Fatburger fast-food franchises in Las Vegas. "My margins are shrinking to a number that would make me reconsider how many employees I'm going to have," he says.Hiring freezeDan Biederman, who has an urban planning consulting firm based in New York, says he's expecting taxes to rise next year, and because of that he's holding back on hiring. "I was going to hire someone for a project in New Jersey, and now I'm not going to do it," he says. Q. Should owners make business decisions based on tax policy? A. Financial advisers are sticking to the advice they have long given small-business clients: Taxes should be just one consideration in a business decision.Many changes on horizon coming yearJOYCE ROSENBERGAssociated PressSMALL BUSINESS BUSINESS BRIEFSKeys TDC elects 2012-13 officersAMarathon woman was re-elected Tuesday to chair the Monroe County Tourist Development Council, the County Commission's advisory board that coordinates Florida Keys tourism promotion efforts and allocates bedtax money for advertising.

New Jersey ranked No. 2, with 7.3 percent of mortgaged homes in some stage of foreclosure in September, according to the Irvine, Calif.-based data firm. The five states with the largest number of completed foreclosures over the 12 months ended in September were California, with 108,000; Florida, with 92,000; Texas, with 59,000; Georgia, with 55,000; and Michigan, with 51,000, the firm said. Those states accounted for 47.7 percent of all completed foreclosures. CoreLogic said 57,000 foreclosures were completed nationwide in September, compared with 83,000 in September 2011 and 59,000 in August. The firm said about 1.4 million homes nationwide, or 3.3 percent of all homes with a mortgage, were in some stage of foreclosure in September, down from 1.5 million, or 3.5 percent, a year earlier.

Owned by Liz and Sam Huddleston, it's filled with flirty frocks, skirts and blouses; the best cardis you simply can't live without; a great selection of shoes; and the most amazing dainty earrings and statement baubles found without a drive to the mainland. Oh yeah, and it has just added home wares think chic throw pillows, drapes, candles, soaps and great gifts. Miss Monroe carries brands that are feminine with a bohemian/hippy vibe, while others are nostalgic of times past. The classic silhouettes are sure to please even the most discerning shopper, especially when you see the price tags sold for half of what the brands typically retail. All the lines Miss Monroe carries come from a lifestyle store with a creative aesthetic and panache for mixing everyday pieces with "wow" pieces. The owners behind Miss Monroe are equally chic, bringing their tastes and talents into the business. I asked Liz Huddleston that, as a born and bred Conch, how the Keys influenced her style and what prompted her to study at the London College of Fashion. "Growing up in the Keys, my style was mainly influenced by the stylish European visitors and the classic preppy look of the snowbirds. Also, my mother is an amazing seamstress and used to indulge my passion for fashion regularly," she said. "During high school, I worked as a hostess at Pierre's. This gave me the opportunity to get very dressed up several times a week without complaint. I used to model my looks off vintage Hollywood starlets from different decades. "Fashion magazines have always been a real passion of mine (I read on average 10 per month). While working at Pierre's, I first came into contact with people working in the fashion industry. Photo shoots for different magazines and advertising campaigns would come into town for a few days and I was totally captivated by them. The creative people working on these shoots were very inspiring, particularly the ones from London. "When I graduated high school a few years later, I decided that instead of running straight off to college, I would go to London for a summer to study fashion. That was the best decision of my life. I discovered a passion for photography that summer and the next year I applied, and was accepted, to the BAFashion Photography course at London College of Fashion. "While I was in college, I did internships at several fashion magazines and worked as an assistant to fashion photographers and stylists. After graduating, the difficulty I experienced was finding paid work in my field.

"We were able to move the ball and we moved it well. It was a strange game because it was 34-6, but if you looked at the game, it was a good game," he said.

Kodi Roberts ran eight times for 78 yards, Jimmy Rhyne ran twice for 52 and a touchdown, and Addison Duma-Kenny ran seven times for 46 yards.

Toward the end of the game, Coral Shores ran a successful fake punt to keep possession of the ball, only to throw an interception on the next play. "It was just one of those nights. I give them a heck of a lot of credit. They deserved to win," Holly said. Tom Johnson and Will Ismer played well on defense for the Canes.

Durkin said she switched the team's defense up to hold that player in check by putting Amanda Bruland at the center midfield position. "Amanda is good at playing a defensive center [midfielder] rather than a goal-scoring strategy. That was our focus for the second half because she was fast and she was making quick runs," she said. The strategy worked and the Dolphins began putting a lot of pressure on Florida Christian on the offensive end. Rodamer just missed a goal on a crossing ball that hit the goalie's hands and went off the post. Ceja scored the gamewinner off a nice short pass from Konrath and beat the keeper to the lower left side.

Conchs done at regional"We had some really good swims, but we're all done," Key West High School swim coach Lori Bosco said Friday morning, a day after the Conchs failed to advance at the Region 4-2Ameet at Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers. Bosco said she asked for the results of the meet before the team left for Key West but was told they wouldn't be available until all the regional meets were completed. The results still had not been posted early Friday on the Florida High School Athletic Association website. The state finals start Nov. 8 in Orlando, which would have been Key West's next stop if anyone advanced. The Conchs'top boy swimmer, junior Derrick Allen, closed out a stellar season by finishing 12th in the 50-yard freestyle and advancing to the consolation finals. His times were 23.0 and 23.35 seconds. Senior Michelle Konik was also 12th in the 100 breaststroke in 1:18 and made the consolation finals in the final meet of her career. The girls 200 individual medley team of Jordan Henry, Konik, Kristen Reed and Devin Osterhoudt swam a personal-best time to finish 10th, missing the school record, Bosco said, by twotenths of a second. The boys 200 free relay team of Trevor Helms, Kai Murphy, Chris Bujak and Allen finished 11th. "Our kids are exhausted," Bosco said, summing up a hectic week of postseason swimming and 1,000 miles of bus travel.

Both Conch teams advance to next Thursday's regional meet at Mills Pond Park in Fort Lauderdale. The Coral Shores boys and girls teams did not advance, said Hurricane Athletic Director Rich Russell, but Steven Chadwick qualified for the regional meet as an individual, finishing eighth in 18:24. The official results of the district race, usually posted online within hours, were not available Friday morning. The times were provided by Key West coach Terence White. "The combined average time of both of our teams was the best we've had at a district meet in a long time," White said, adding that the 3.1-mile park layout was a tough, slow course. Wagner, whose previous best was 17:49, finished third, six seconds ahead of teammate Brock Guzman, who was fourth. Connor Chaney was seventh in 18:23, setting a Key West freshman record. Tyler Hancock came in at 18:27 and Julian Ramirez followed in 18:52 Milliken was 11th overall, running, White said, "the best race I've ever seen her run." Freshman Catherine Richardson was the next Conch finisher in 22:56, followed by Meaghan McCulla (23:12), Priscilla Welzien (23:32) and Liz Czerwinski (23:46).

As usual, the Dolphins will begin the year short a number of starters who are finishing up football season. Several players ran crosscountry, as well. Coach Jim Murphy said the team is on its second week of practice, albeit with an incomplete roster. Those missing include last year's top goal scorer, Riley Durkin, and starting goalie Raymond Crespo. "Once we have everyone in, we'll have the most seniors we've had in five years with seven or eight," Murphy said. "We only lost Marco [Ceja], which is a huge loss, but we're bringing a lot of people back. A lot of those have been starting and playing." Murphy said the Dolphins (1-10-2 last year) would rely heavily on Durkin and fellow seniors Ricky Ceja and Ariel Rodriguez. "This will be their fifth year playing varsity, so they've all been starting. That's going to be a huge part of the team this year. I've also got Connor Boyd and Yoniel Esquirol playing, which adds some size to our team," he said. Esquirol missed last season, and Murphy said his speed up front with Durkin would be a boon to the Dolphins'offensive game. Rodriguez will move from his traditional sweeper position to the midfield. Murphy noted that Durkin and Ceja have been playing together for several years Ceja as a center midfielder and Durkin a forward and have a good rapport. "Riley had a great year last year finding the back of the net. He had 25 goals and Ricky had almost every assist on the ones that weren't unassisted," he said. The Dolphins are part of a sizable District 16-2Athat includes perennial powers Westminster Christian and Palmer Trinity schools. Archimedean Academy, Somerset Academy, Westwood Christian School and Colonial Christian School round out the district opponents. Marathon faces most of those district foes twice, as well as a pair of games each against county rivals Key West and Coral Shores high schools. The team's 22game schedule is the largest in several years, Murphy said. "We have a lot of new teams this year that we haven't played in the past. It's always nice to find new opponents to add on every year," he said. Wednesday's game at the Conchs is scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m. The boys are slated to host Dade Christian School at 3 p.m. Thursday at the Marathon Community Park.Team hoping to rebound from last seasonBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON SOCCER Lady Dolphins host tournamentWhat the Marathon High School girls basketball team lacks in age they make up for in experience. That might sound out of whack, but most of the 10player team have been playing varsity since seventh or eighth grade. The Dolphins have just two seniors to go along with five sophomores and three freshmen. "The bulk of our roster is underclassmen, so we've been watching the kids for two years," coach Lesley Lindsey said. "Overall, our team moves well. They're learning to make good cuts and to see more gaps on offense. It's becoming a more natural thing to them." Lindsey says the Dolphins (6-13 last year) will rely on longtime varsity guard Jessica Forest for leadership. "She's been a really good leader for the past two years, so we're looking for good things from her as a senior," she said. Sophomore John'Nisha Qualls has made "huge improvements" in her game and will run the point. Offensively, Lindsey says the team will run a lot of plays through sophomore Yailin Nieda and freshman Amanda Davis. Lindsey said Davis would play a "loose power forward" position, enabling setups down low, as well as on the perimeter. "We're going to look to move Amanda Davis a bit inside more this year. She's our best shooter, but she's a strong girl that can rebound on the inside," she said. Nieda "has an excellent mid-range shot and she's a good rebounder," Lindsey said about the 5-foot-10-inch center. "With her Amanda working the high-low, we'll be able to make the defense collapse and our shooters will have less pressure." Lindsey said freshman Gardine Raymond is a solid overall player who's opened up her offensive game and understands when to attack the basket off the dribble. She's also a quality man-toman defender. "If we can get her to drive and kick the ball, the more experience she gains, the more she'll be able to open up her offense," she said. Taja Hidalgo is another solid defender for the Dolphins. "That girl is on the floor more than any player diving for balls," Lindsey said. "She rebounds well and is incredible on defense." Rounding out the roster are Yarilyn De Armas, Chavely Aldama, Yoslyne Conde and Rosalia Parrado. The Dolphins will host a preseason tournament next weekend to open the season. Key West High School will play Southridge High School at 4 p.m. Nov. 9 followed by Marathon and Coral Shores High School at 5 p.m.The following day, the Conchs and Canes are scheduled to play at 11 a.m. Marathon and Southridge are slated to play at 12:30 p.m.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON HOOPS

"When Sam and I decided to get married, we had to make a decision where we would begin the immigration process needed for an Englishman to marry an American woman," she said. "We had been living in London for seven years and were kind of burnt out by city life. We decided to come back to the Keys. "At the time, we considered it a temporary move and planned to go back after two years. As a fashion photographer and graphic designer, our employment prospects in the Keys were pretty limited. After a yearlong honeymoon filled with endless road trips, happy hours and sunsets, we were ready to get back to work. "I have always had a desire to work for myself and owning a boutique is something I'd been thinking about for years. I spent a few months creating a business plan and researching the need for another boutique in the area. I put together a convincingenough argument to win Sam over and we started work on the shop." Her go-to outfit for everyday in the Florida Keys? "I have an amazing collection of dresses, retro ones from the shop, vintage ones from my travels and even a few modern ones," Huddleston said. "Alot of them could be considered too dressy for an average day in the Florida Keys. To tone them down, I pair them with flip-flops or sandals and keep my hair and makeup natural." Her favorite stylish hangout in the Keys? "Pierre's is the only place I go when I'm in the mood for a nice glass of wine," she said. "They have a great wine list and I can very happily while away the hours sitting on their porch. If I'm feeling lively, I head to the side bar at Morada Bay. My favorite bartender, Joey, makes a great mojito, which goes perfectly with an order of calamari. "We try to get down to Key West as often as possible. We love drinking at the Porch, where the beer and wine list is extensive. To eat, you can't beat Blue Heaven for the atmosphere; the yellowtail over linguine is heavenly. The Cafe, just off Duval Street, is equally delicious." The Miss Monroe Boutique is at mile marker 88.5 bayside. Hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Saturday.

GULFSIDE HALLOWEEN Photos by MARY BETH MARTELKids and adults filled the Gulfside Village shopping center in Marathon on Halloween as the merchants there set out tables full of candy and other goods for visitors.Along with the neighborhoods behind Florida Keys Marathon Airport,Gulfside Village is one of Marathon's most popular Halloween stops. Ice cream and beer: Adream comboIt was a happy accident, swears Ari Fleischer, founder of Atlanta's Frozen Pints Craft Beer Ice Cream. At a party two years ago, a friend spilled a beer next to an ice cream maker, prompting Fleischer to wonder what beer ice cream would taste like. "It was a moment of inspiration," Fleischer said. "When I saw it, I said, We should pour the beer in there and see what happens.'When it worked, I thought, This is genius. This is what I want to do.'" The impromptu trial combined vanilla ice cream and bock beer and became Frozen Pints'first flavor, Vanilla Bock. Fleischer calls it "the one that started it all." But it took a lot of experimentation and a couple of years of building the business before Frozen Pints made it to market. Now, Vanilla Bock and four more Frozen Pints flavors are available. Originally from New York, Fleischer graduated from Emory University in 2006 and worked in market research before recently going full time with Frozen Pints. "That background was great," Fleischer said. "Anything about creating a product and building a brand was hugely helpful. And I've been really passionate about craft beer for as long as I can remember. All the different styles and flavors are just fascinating." Besides Vanilla Bock, the other four year-round Frozen Pints flavors are Peach Lambic, Honey IPA, Brown Ale Chip and Malted Milk Chocolate Stout. Seasonal flavors include Pumpkin Ale and Cinnamon Espresso Stout. "We try to get as much flavor from the beer as possible, so we start with the beer," Fleischer said. "I'll go to a pub and try a bunch of beers until I find one that I think could be a good ice cream flavor. Then I work with that to create the ice cream and find the right balance. "For instance, with the IPA, I wanted something sweet and floral to balance the bitterness of hops, so I added the honey. That one is really unique, because you get the honey up front and the hops come in back along with a slight citrus flavor."

KeysNet.com Keynoter 4B Saturday,November 3,2012 Prepare forbusiest season forlost luggageIf you plan to fly during the holiday season, the chance of losing your luggage increases sharply. The rate of mishandled luggage in December was as much as 35 percent higher than the annual averages for 2008 through 2010, according to a study by NerdWallet, a personal finance analysis website. In January, the lost or damaged rate was as much as 43 percent higher than the annual averages for 2008-11. For example, in December 2010, airlines reported an average rate of 4.7 mishandled bags per 1,000 passengers, compared with the average for the year of 3.47 lost or damaged bags, according to NerdWallet Inc. The trend did not hold true in December 2011, when the rate dropped to 3.25 reports, compared with the annual average of 3.33 reports, according to NerdWallet. Alicia Jao, NerdWallet vice president of travel media, suggested a simple reason: Around the holidays, travelers carry more luggage with them, increasing the likelihood of lost bags. "During the holidays, people usually check more luggage than when they travel, say, in the summer," Jao said. The study also found that the lost luggage rates are higher among regional airlines. The worst offender, according to the study, is American Eagle, the regional carrier of American Airlines. The airline had 9.19 reports of mishandled bags per 1,000 passengers in January 2011 more than double the average rate for all other airlines that year, according to the study. In a statement, AMR, the parent company of American Eagle, said the airline "continues to make great progress in its baggage performance, with a 28 percent improvement for the first nine months of 2012 compared to 2011."Wish listsThe nation's airlines would be best improved if they allowed disabled travelers to board first, created child-free zones on planes and stopped charging extra for seats with a few more inches of legroom. Those were some of the findings when the travel review website Smarter Travel recently surveyed 1,191 of its readers and asked "How should travel change in 2013?" In the survey, 77 percent said disabled travelers should get to board first, 58 percent said airlines should offer child-free zones and 68 percent said airlines should not charge more for extra roomy seats that had previously been offered at the regular economy fare. When asked whether use of electronic devices should be allowed on takeoffs and landings, 22 percent said yes, 37 percent said no and 41 percent said maybe.Baggage feesIn the first six months of 2012, the nation's largest airlines collected more than $1.7 billion in fees to check baggage. One way to avoid such fees is to fly an airline such as Southwest Airlines that doesn't charge for the first two bags. The other way is more questionable. Eric Rose, a business consultant who travels frequently, came across the second method on a recent flight on Virgin America. He saw several passengers drag luggage that was too big for the overhead bin to the gate, only to have the gate attendant send the bags into the cargo hold without charging the passengers a check-back fee. The move saved the passengers a fee of $25 a bag.It's obvious: More bags are checked inBy HUGO MARTINLos Angeles TimesTRAVEL LIVING BRIEFSAnderson talks to deer groupFlorida Keys National Wildlife biologist Chad Anderson will give an update on the state of the Key deer herd and plans for the National Key Deer Refuge when the Key Deer Protection Alliance meets at 7 p.m. Nov. 8.

T-day sans turkey isn't lackingVegetarians have long known a Thanksgiving secret the rest of us are reluctant to admit it's all about the side dishes. Think about it. Once you've taken the obligatory slice of turkey, a dutiful spoonful of gravy and maybe haggled a bit over the dark meat, what you really want is more stuffing. More mashed anything. More syrupy sweet potatoes. And definitely more pie. Pie of any kind. "Absence of turkey can be a very positive thing," says New York Times food columnist Mark Bittman, whose upcoming book, "VB6: Eat Vegan Before 6:00," is dedicated to learning to make do with less meat. "Most people have roughly 360 dinners a year that have absence of turkey.'We eat it on Thanksgiving because we're supposed to." But if you take the bird off the table, is it still Thanksgiving? You could go with Bittman's preferred solution get an inflatable turkey as a mock centerpiece or follow the advice of chefs who have made vegetable cookery an art form. Approach the holiday as the celebration it is, they say, and turn all your creative juices onto the vegetables and grains. Offer dishes that are rich in flavor and fat, and, if you really need an anchor for the meal, create another dish as a centerpiece. "Choose one of the bigger vegetables and make something out of it," says Amanda Cohen, chefowner of the New York City restaurant Dirt Candy, and author of the cookbook of the same name. "Take cauliflower and spend a moment. Smoke it, season it, batter and deep fry it. Bigger pieces of vegetable are really going to replicate the idea of a centerpiece." Acorn squash or sugar pumpkins stuffed with wild rice or other grains, carrots, celery, onions, nuts, dried cranberries and a tiny dice of hickory smoked tofu also make a flavorful, celebratory main dish, says Diane Morgan, author of two books on Thanksgiving and a new volume on root vegetables called "Roots" (Chronicle Books, 2012). A lasagna of sliced sugar pumpkin layered with ricotta and crumbled fried sage, she says, also offers an impressive make-ahead dish that will have you forgetting there ever was talk of a turkey. With the centerpiece nailed, proceed as usual. Surround that dish with all the traditional sides stuffing, mashed potatoes, those gooey sweet potatoes and roasted Brussels sprouts. You want gravy? Make it with a stock of roasted root vegetables, Morgan says, and pour it all over your potatoes. Use as much butter, salt and cream as you normally would on Thanksgiving, knowing that those are the elements that put the "comfort" in "comfort food." "Fat is the operative word," Bittman says. "You can make a really great stuffing with a lot of butter. Creamed onions, creamed spinach. Of the things people think of when they think of Thanksgiving food, only the turkey is really meat."Vegetarian is all about side dishesBy MICHELE KAYALAssociated PressTHE DINING TABLE Photo by MATTHEW MEAD/ASSOCIATED PRESSThis vegetarian Thanksgiving dinner consists of red bell pepper and apple slaw,no-knead flax rolls,roasted vegetable quiche,lemon pecan mousse cake,corn bread stuffing mushrooms and squash bisque with pan-roasted corn salsa.

LOCAL SINCE 1970 3rd Floor Islamorada, 33036 1009 Simonton St. Suite 3 Key West, 33040or Report: Cheerleading needs safety rulesCheerleading isnt just jumping and waving pompoms it has become as athletic and potentially as dangerous as a sport and should be designated one to improve safety, the nations leading group of pediatricians says. The number of cheerleaders injured each year has climbed dramatically in the last two decades. Common stunts that pose risks include tossing and flipping cheerleaders in the air and creating human pyramids that reach 15 feet high or more. In a new policy statement released online Monday in the journal Pediatrics, the American Academy of Pediatrics says school sports associations should designate cheerleading as a sport, and make it subject to safety rules and better supervision. That would include on-site athletic trainers, limits on practice time and better qualified coaches, the academy says. Just like other athletes, cheerleaders should be required to do conditioning exercises and undergo physical exams before joining the squad, the new policy says. Not everyone is fully aware of how cheerleading has evolved over the last couple of decades. It used to be just standing on the sidelines and doing cheers and maybe a few jumps, said Dr. Cynthia LaBella, a sports medicine specialist at Chicagos Lurie Childrens Hospital and an author of the new policy. But she said cheerleading often results in injuries that include severe sprains, broken arms and legs, neck injuries and concussions.Injuries riseLast year, there were almost 37,000 emergency room visits for cheerleading injuries among girls ages 6 to 22, according to data from the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Thats more than four times higher than in 1980, when cheerleading was tamer. While there are still traditional cheerleading squads that support schoolsathletic teams, some schools and private clubs have separate cheerleading teams that compete against other teams. Kali Wald of Elburn, Ill., suffered a serious concussion last year during an acrobatic routine with her high schools competitive team; teammates tossed her in the air but she landed wrong twice, first on her upper back and neck, then on her head. She blacked out for several minutes. Her father, Dave Wald, said her coaches didnt realize she was seriously injured and never called an ambulance. She still has short-term memory loss and cant attend school fulltime because of dizziness, headaches and other concussion symptoms. Kali, 18, said she believes that cheerleading should be considered a sport and made safer. Her father agreed and said there needs to be better awareness about the potential risks. Injuries have increased as cheerleading has become more popular. Data suggest there are more than 3 million cheerleaders nationwide aged 6 and older, mostly girls. That includes about 400,000 in high school, according to data cited in the new policy. While the overall injury rate in high school cheerleading is lower than in other girls sports, including gymnastics, soccer and field hockey, the rate of catastrophic injuries like skull fractures and paralyzing spine injuries is higher, the academy noted.Knee damageKasey Bronstein, 14, and her sister Kori, 17, of Mahwah, N.J., both tore a knee tendon while cheerleading for a private competitive team run by their parents. They twisted their knees doing acrobatic moves while standing on the raised-up hands of their teammates. They had knee surgery last November, followed by extensive physical therapy, and have returned to cheerleading. Both said it should be considered a sport but they also think its already pretty safe. Theyre kind of making it too safe, taking out skills that are very exciting to do, Kori said. That includes a double flip stunt no longer allowed on her team. Some schools and state high school sports associations already consider cheerleading a sport and require the kind of safety oversight that the academy is recommending. But many do not, said Jim Lord, executive director of the American Association of Cheerleading Coaches & Administrators. Some dont consider it a sport because not all cheerleading squads are involved in their own competitions, he said. Lord said the academys policy mirrors many of his groups safety recommendations for high schools and colleges. That includes limiting the height of human pyramids in high school cheerleading to just two people. Doctors say its a sport with dangersLINDSEY TANNERAssociated PressTO YOUR HEALTHBACK TO THE WILD Key West firefighter Angelina Maltese (left) releases a hawk that was rehabilitated at the Key West Wildlife Center after it was brought in with injuries.The release followed another of a laughing gull that firefighters rescued from a power pole behind Miami Subs;one of the birds feet was jammed in a crack of rotted wood and it was injured due to thrashing.The other firefighters here helped with that rescue. Solitude in a wired world? When was the last time you were alone, and unwired? Really, truly by yourself. Just you and your thoughts no cell phone, no tablet, no laptop. Many of us crave that kind of solitude, though in an increasingly wired world, its a rare commodity. We check texts and emails, and update our online status, at any hour when were lying in bed or sitting at stop lights or on trains. Sometimes, we even do so when were on the toilet. We feel obligated, yes. But were also fascinated with this connectedness, constantly tinkering and checking in an obsession thats starting to get pushback from a small but growing legion of tech users who are feeling the need to unplug and get away. What might have felt like an obligation at first has become an addiction. Its almost as if we dont know how to be alone, or we are afraid of what well find when we are alone with ourselves, says Camille Preston, a tech and communication consultant based in Cambridge, Mass. Its easier to keep doing than it is to be in stillness. One could argue that, in this economy, its wise to be constantly wired to stay on top of things, to please the boss. Preston knows people who get up in the middle of the night to see if their boss has sent them an e-mail. But she and others also see more hints of limit-setting going on, this movement of solitude-seekers with roots in the technology industry, ironically enough. When I think about truly disconnecting, I look to my truly techy friends, says Cathy Davidson, a Duke University professor who codirects the schools PhD Lab in Digital Knowledge. Those friends, she says, take long, unwired vacations and set away messages telling people to write back after they return. And they stick to it, Davidson says, wishing she could do the same. Theyve come up with a socially acceptable convention for their own absence from the world of technology and everybody recognizes it.Set limitsOne organization called Reboot has started the Sabbath Manifesto, a call to unplug one day a week to find solitude or to simply take a day of rest with family and friends. Bigger corporations, some outside the tech industry, are starting to catch on to this. To encourage work-life balance, Volkswagen shuts off mobile email in Germany 30 minutes after employees shifts end and turns it back on 30 minutes before their next shift starts. Google, Nike and the Huffington Post, among others, provide space for employees to take naps, or to meditate. The idea is that employees who take time to themselves to reenergize will be more productive. John Cacioppo, a University of Chicago psychologist, thinks there might just be something to that. He has spent much of his career tackling the topic of loneliness and isolation, which researchers have proven can affect humans adversely, all the way down to gene expression. Feeling ignored sparks feelings of loneliness, says Cacioppo, director of the University of Chicagos Center for Cognitive and Social Neuroscience. But getting away, he says thats the opposite of being lonely. Its time that you take by choice, Cacioppo says. So while the cognitive effects are still being studied, he says its very likely that that type of solitude is good for the brain. Dan Rollman had little doubt of that when he and a few others from Reboot, a group of Jewish thought leaders, gathered in 2009. Thats when they created the Sabbath Manifesto, inspired by the traditional Jewish sabbath, but aimed at people from any background who are encouraged to unplug one day any day of the week.Simpler timeThe idea came to Rollman when he found himself craving a simpler time, when stores closed on Sundays and life slowed down. I knew I wanted a day of rest, says Rollman, who is CEO of the company RecordSetter.com. The manifesto described as a creative project designed to slow down lives in an increasingly hectic world has 10 principles. They are suggestions ranging from avoid technology and connect with loved ones to get outside, drink wine and find silence. To help with this, the organization has created The Undo List an email that arrives Friday afternoons with ideas for conversation topics, readings, local outings and creative endeavors to ease the time away from technology and help make the day better. There also are specific activities for subscribers in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Rollman himself avoids doing work on Saturdays, whenever he can, and often unplugs altogether then and encourages his employees to do the same. Theres a huge sense of relief, Rollman says. It is a liberating feeling to walk out of ones door and not have your cell phone in your pocket. Leah Jones, a 35-year-old Chicagoan, hasnt gone quite that far. But she has cut back, turning her cell phone to silent mode from 11:30 p.m. to 6 a.m. and putting it away when she goes out. Im a better friend when I dont have my phone in my hand, says Jones, who is 35 and vice president of social and emerging media at Olson public relations. For her, solitude might simply be sitting home and watching a few episodes of TV. I might tweet while I watch it, but its a perfectly acceptable way to spend an afternoon, she says.Just joyfulIs that really solitude, though? Davidson, at Duke, thinks it is. For some people its dancing and blasting rock music, she says. We tend to think of it as solitude, which is sort of a lofty term, when in fact for many people, its also about being joyful. The real issue is fun vs. work. And often, she says, her students are better at it than she is. They seem very fine to go off on a bike ride and leave a cell phone, she says. Renee Houston, an associate professor of communication studies at Puget Sound University in Washington state, also finds herself envying a colleague who regularly unplugs. He will drive two hours to go to the coast just to step away, just have time to think, she says. Shes not there yet but is finding small ways to set limits. Her family has a rule, for instance put cell phones away during dinner unless theres a crisis. She, too, has noticed more after-hours tech limits in the business world. But it can be as difficult to set those limits with close colleagues or friends whove come to expect instant responses, and get miffed if they dont get one. The friend is saying, But wait! Its me! says Cacioppo from the University of Chicago. But you have to wonder what kind of friend are they?Its difficult but it also can be refreshingBy MARTHA IRVINEAssociated PressRELATIONSHIPS Photo by MARY ALTAFFER/ASSOCIATED PRESSDan Rollman is co-founder of a movement called the Sabbath Manifesto.The manifesto is a call to unplug one day a week to find solitude or to simply take a day of rest with family and friends.

The Holiday Inn, mile marker 100 oceanside, is ground zero for the Nov. 8 cook-off, which runs from 6-8:30 p.m. Sampling-size servings begin at 7 p.m. Sponsored by the Key Largo Chamber of Commerce and Community Bank, the Cook-Off gives Upper Keys chefs representing a wide gamut of experiences the challenge of testing their best recipes on a willing public.

Divisions include professional haute cuisine, just good cookin,fam-31st annual food challenge coming Nov. 8KEY LARGO Contributed photoFlamingo cupcakes are among the delectable dessert offeringsPerson of Interestmakes its debut at Red Barn Arich, arrogant lawyer discovers the body of a murdered 10-year-old girl near his home.Ž So begins the story behind the story in Bob Bowersoxs new play, Person of Interest,Ž which makes its debut Nov. 7 at Key Wests Red Barn Theater. Bowersox, a veteran actor, playwright, novelist and TVpersonality, brings a lot of stage, screen and life experience to this one. He gets excited telling how he first became attracted to the story, written by British crime novelist John Wainwright, who had a career with Scotland Yard before quitting to become a full-time writer. Wainwrights book, Brainwash,Ž was adapted for the screen in a film called Under Suspicion,Ž which starred Gene Hackman and Morgan Freeman. I like film noir and liked the way it [Brainwash] was staged,Ž Bowersox recalls. So I went looking for the source material and thats how I found Wainwright.Ž Only, turns out Wainwright died after writing BrainwashŽ and left all rights to his wife, who disappeared. Bowersox knew the story deserved a new telling, staged for theater. This would make a great stage play. It took a year-and-a-half of digging,Ž he adds, but eventually the Key West actor and playwright was able to track down Wainwrights niece, living in Cornwall, England. She eventually sold the stage rights to Bowersox after months of back-and-forth negotiations. Another year to write his stage adaptation, Bowersox says, and plenty more work casting, rehearsing and perfecting. Now Person of InterestŽ makes its debut. Some of Key Wests best-known stage veterans will join the cast, along with some younger up-andcomers. Tom Murtha playes Henry Hearst, the rich, powerful lawyer who has been asked to come to his local police station to verify details about his discovery of the young murder victim. But Hearst runs into more than he expects when he arrives at the station and finds himself being questioned about more than one murder,Ž Bowersox explains. The skilled interrogator who confronts the grizzled lawyer is on loan from Scotland Yard. Shes a master interrogator and works to get a confession out of this guy,Ž Bowersox explains. Vanessa McCaffrey, another Key West stage veteran, plays the toughskinned Scotland Yard investigator. Others in the cast include Melody Moore, Ross Pipkin, Jack Terry, Karl Stahl and Stephanie Yosen. Bowersox is directing the play. Its a fabulous story, drenched in suspense, and with a couple of wicked twists that you absolutely will not see coming.Ž Bowersox has written a dozen screenplays and four adapted scripts. His screenplay, Beneath the Badge,Ž has been a finalist in six competitions, including the highly visible Project Greenlight, which is a Matt Damon / Ben Affleck / Miramax joint venture. An accomplished actor with more than 20 films under his belt, Bowersox says among his favoritesPlaywright likens story to film noir with lots of twistsLAttitudes StaffTHEATER Detective James Bell (Ross Pipkin) lets loose on powerful lawyer Henry Hearst (Tom Murtha). www.mandalayoceanfrontgrilltiki.com Scotland Yards Catherine Lyle (Vanessa McCaffrey) interviews the suspects wife, Susan Hearst (Melody Moore).
