Following the Tuesday election, Davidson was up by 148 votes, or just 0.44 percent of all votes cast. Davidson received 16,410 votes to Welsh's 16,262. One hundred and fifteen people wrote in a candidate. After the three-member Election Canvassing Board comprising county Mayor David Rice, Commissioner Heather Carruthers and county Judge Ruth Becker counted provisional ballots Friday morning, Davidson gained 43 votes to Welsh's 25, a difference of 0.5 percent of all votes cast. When that percentage comes into play, state election law calls for an automated recount. Welsh opted not to waive it when reached by Supervisor of Electionselect Joyce Griffin. The recount was ongoing at press time on Friday. For updated coverage, visit www.KeysNet.com. Welsh, a former Key West High School principal, said he didn't expect the outcome to change with a recount but opted to avail himself to it based on what he dubbed "some confusion" on Election Day. He cited memory cards that store votes that had to be resent from two Keys precincts, and 250 absentee ballots that had to be manually transported from the Upper Keys to Key West. "I wasn't hoping the results would change but I wanted an accurate count," Welsh said. "The idea that the recount is automatic, I might as well avail myself. I'm just kind of trying to put the whole thing behind me." Welsh ran on a platform of restoring trust to the School District, which in recent years has been rocked by a six-figure financial scandal, plummeting budget revenues and a sour relationship between unionized teachers and the administration. Davidson stressed throughout his campaign a return to school-based management, empowering individual schools to draw on community resources to achieve success. As for the vote, Davidson said Friday, "I can't see how it will change." Whoever wins will be sworn in Nov. 20.

William Britt, 55, formerly of Cudjoe Key, is charged with 123 counts of possessing child pornography and seven counts of possessing a photograph of a sexual performance by a child. All are felonies. Records provided by the Monroe County School District's Human Resources Department indicate Britt earned $100 daily substituting at Horace O'Bryant Middle School, Sugarloaf School, Key West High School, Marathon High School, Poinciana Elementary School, Glynn Archer Elementary School and Gerald Adams Elementary School. In some cases, Britt, who started working as a sub in 2010, worked with prekindergarten and special-needs students.

David Sinclair, 58, of Key Largo works at the county's transfer station on Card Sound Road. He's accused of stealing $22.23 in tipping fees, although Assistant State Attorney Mark Wilson has said he believes the theft goes deeper than that. According to a probablecause affidavit from State Attorney's Office investigator Edwin Grove, suspicions were raised back in the spring, when county Senior Projects Manager Kevin Wilson on March 16 "had reason to suspect two employees ... were accepting cash from customers, providing fraudulent receipts and keeping the money." Kevin Wilson toldTransfer worker allegedly stole tipping feesCRIME FRONT SINCLAIRSewer district halts some constructionBetween 40 and 72 Key Largo homes might not be able to connect to the statemandated centralized sewer system because they are in a federally protected coastal area. Officials with Monroe County and the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District are trying to find out why neither entity knew about the issue before work progressed on the sewer system in the area. The homes are off State Road 905, which connects U.S. 1 to Card Sound Road. They are in what is known as the Coastal Barrier Resource System, and the county has a policy of not issuing permits for public utilities such as sewers that are within the system. That policy in part is why the county has been denying permits to allow No Name Key property owners to connect to the commercial power grid. That battle is tied up in courts. Many different areas in Monroe are in the CBRS, including the to-be-sewered properties in question off SR-905. They are on Charlemagne Boulevard, Valois Boulevard, Marseilles Boulevard and the north side of Palm Drive. According to a Nov. 5 email from Monroe County Growth Management Director Christine Hurley to the county commissioners and other county officials, the wastewater treatment district will alter construction plans while district and county officials "are working on this issue." "We talked with [district General Manager Margaret Blank Monday] and she has indicated the district will instruct their contractor to go ahead with the force main construction, but not proceed past Palm Drive," Hurley wrote. Blank said she found out about the issue on Nov. 2.

But that doesn't mean a change from the current system of governor-appointed board members will happen soon or at all. The FKAAquestion posed on Tuesday's 6 ballot provides a snapshot of local voter sentiment but any changes in the selection of board members requires the Florida Legislature to pass a bill that is not vetoed by the governor. "The biggest obstacle is knowing what the governor is going to do," said outgoing state Rep. Ron Saunders. "Unless the governor gives some type of positive sign, it could all be a waste of time," Saunders said. "Why file a bill if you know in advance that the governor is opposed?" The question is not academic. In 2005, then-state Rep. Ken Sorensen filed an elected-FKAAbill that passed the Florida Legislature but then-Gov. Jeb Bush vetoed it. Holly Raschein remembers that. Raschein, elected Tuesday as the incoming District 120 state representative for Monroe County and south Miami-Dade, managed the bill as Sorensen's legislative aide. "We presented it, worked it and got it to the top, where Jeb Bush vetoed it," Raschein said. "Typically, governors don't like giving up appointments." Raschein said she has "slots" to file six bills in the 2013 legislative session and has not decided on whether the FKAAissue should be among them. "Right now, I'm letting the dust settle" after the election, she said. "I've got a lot of work to do setting up the office." County Commissioner George Neugent, who advocated putting the FKAA question on the ballot, points to the results: 24,366 in favor of an elected FKAA, 10,771 opposed. "Our residents spoke loud and clear," Neugent said. "Actually, I'm a little bit surprised that such an overwhelming majority said they wanted an elected board. Why would anyone not respect that?" The FKAAwas created to oversee distribution of fresh water throughout the Keys, and now also handles a significant portion of wastewater issues in unincorporated Monroe County. The board has five members. "The FKAAhas evolved into something much bigger and more important than the agency that collects your water bill," Neugent said. "It's the only local utility that handles users'money that is not elected." The current board members took no formal position on the non-binding referendum, except to urge residents to vote. "I was happy to see so many people made it to the last page of the ballot," FKAAExecutive Director Kirk Zuelch said. Zuelch said the ballot results were not a surprise: "People typically vote for the right to vote." Especially when the person now making FKAA appointments is Gov. Rick Scott, Saunders said. "Gov. Scott is not exactly the most popular guy," he said. Raschein said the rigors of an election could discourage capable people from serving on the FKAAboard. "There are many good and qualified people willing to serve but don't want to run a campaign," she said. "Having just gone through a campaign, I know that's something to consider." FKAABoard Member David Ritz of Key Largo said Friday that he would not run to retain his appointed seat. "There is a large pool of people willing to serve the community but not willing to go through the process of getting elected," Ritz said. "I'm one of those. Acorporate-type board is one thing, but a politically elected board is not my cup of tea." Neugent said several residents have approached him over the years about seeking an elected FKAA. "No one is so naive to not recognize the political efforts of some people to get their guys appointed to the FKAA," he said. "Clearly, elected boards have to be more responsive to their constituents if they want to be re-elected." The FKAAhad a fouryear period 1976 to 1980 when it was elected. But efforts by some elected board members to micromanage construction of a vitally needed replacement water pipeline resulted in the agency being moved back to an appointed status. During a November 2011 meeting, then-FKAA Executive Director Jim Reynolds resigned abruptly. At the same session, the board named Zuelch, then FKAA attorney, as the new agency chief. Neither the Reynolds resignation nor his replacement were on the agenda. Circumstances of the sudden switch were never fully detailed, helping to fuel interest in an elected board. Neugent said he did not want the issue of an elected vs. appointed FKAAboard to become "adversarial," but insisted that Tuesday's results on the ballot question matter. "If the vote is not respected, I will make it a point of mine," Neugent said. Board members now serve four-year terms after appointment by the governor, and oversee a budget of about $50 million annually. The utility has a staff of about 250.Voters endorse making change to electedAQUEDUCT AUTHORITYBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org until the issue is resolved. "I'm hoping we can move forward," Blank said. In a Nov. 4 e-mail to county Planning Director Townsley Schwab, Hurley, County Attorney Bob Shillinger and others, Blank said she is confused about how no one from the county knew the planned sewer project was in the protected system. The wastewater district and the county have been coordinating on theSR905 sewer project for months because of a bike path the county is building in the same area. "I wish this had been brought to our attention much earlier," Blank wrote. "We are planning to begin construction [Nov. 5] after a long period of coordination with the county's Engineering Department." Even though the wastewater district is separate from the county, it lies within unincorporated Monroe, meaning those residents must obtain county permits to connect to the system. Congress created the Coastal Barrier Resource System in 1982, and updated it in 1990, to protect undeveloped coastal barrier areas. In 2001, the County Commission approved a local law creating a "coastal barrier resources system overlay district." The law "prohibited the extension and expansion of specific types of public utilities to or through lands designated as a unit of the coastal barrier resources system." Hurley's e-mail cites several elements of the county land-use plan that "discourage certain types of utilities from extending within the CBRS." Examples include "the extension of facilities and services provided by the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority and private providers of electricity and telephone service to CBRS units." Language from the county code Section 130-122 addressing the overlay district established in 2001 expressly states the extension or expansion of "central wastewater treatment collection systems, potable water, electricity, telephone and cable" infrastructure is prohibited. "So, ultimately the division would, based on our current comprehensive plan policies, Land Development Code, and practices, deny the individual connections to the infrastructure, upon permit application," Hurley wrote. Blank wrote in the emails to the county that the area in question "is considered a cold spot,'and originally was not going to be sewered." "However, several property owners from that area approached the board and were extremely vocal about wanting sewer service in that area. After a public hearing, the district agreed to provide it," she wrote. Blank also included eight bullet points explaining the benefits of the project. Most notable is that the properties "are already required to meet [state mandated 2015 advanced wastewater treatment] standards on their own." "The bottom line is that this project is just a more effective way to do what the property owners are required to do anyway for about the same price maybe a little cheaper," she wrote.Force main on hold for nowFrom Sewers,1A Notice of Manual Audit The Monroe County Supervisor of Elections, Harry L.

Mayor Pete Worthington is leaving the council because he served the maximumallowed three two-year terms. Cinque is entering the final year of his third term.Now, it looks like Cinque will have the support of his fellow council members when they choose a mayor and vice mayor for the coming year. Polled Wednesday, they unanimously supported him."When Pete was in his last year, he was the mayor. I don't see why we shouldn't make Mike the mayor," said Councilwoman Ginger Snead. "He moves the meeting and controls it and if he wants it, I don't see any reason why we shouldn't do that. I have a lot of respect for him and he's a good council member." Chris Bull will take Worthington's spot on the dais Tuesday following his election this past week, along with the re-elections of Snead and Councilman Dick Ramsay. Bull was involved in some eventful mayoral selections during his previous stint on the council, from 2004 to 2008, and said he hopes to avoid that this time around. "My goal is that it's not a big fiasco like it has been in the past to elect the mayor and vice mayor. As far as mayor goes, I have a lot of respect for Mike Cinque and this is his last year," Bull said. Bull pointed out that the mayoral position is largely ceremonial. The main function is to run council meetings and appear on behalf of the city at various events. "It is a ceremonial position, but you do need to put some time into it. As long as he's willing to do that, he runs a good meeting and he knows a lot of history about the city," Bull said. "I'm open to anybody that wants it, but I think it might be [Cinque] this time around," Councilman Rich Keating said. "It's his last year and he's a leader. He does a good job on the council and I think he has everyone's support." Ramsay, the vice mayor, said he plans to support Cinque and expects his own title to be passed on to Keating. "I feel [Cinque's] done a wonderful job for the city and he deserves to be mayor in his going out year. In all fairness, I think all the council from time to time should have the privilege and honor of" holding one of the ceremonial titles," Ramsay said. "I would certainly support Councilman Keating being vice mayor because he's served his time and he deserves it." Ramsay and Snead will each be termed out next year, but Snead has twice been mayor. Ramsay said he'd consider it a privilege to exit the council in that job. "I'm very much [hoping for] the support of the council in my outgoing year to be mayor after six years on the council," he said. Cinque said he'd be honored if his fellow council members decide to nominate him Tuesday. "If they'd like to make me mayor, I'd enjoy it. I think [Worthington] enjoyed it and it would be a nice honor if they did," he said. Tuesday's council meeting is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center.Councilman is in his final yearMARATHONtime of his original hire, Mr. Britt was subject to and successfully passed all of the background screening and fingerprinting efforts that the School District requires of all employees. In fact, there is no indication in Mr. Britt's background of any prior criminal misconduct. "There is also currently no evidence or indication that Mr. Britt committed misconduct in his role as a teacher or substitute teacher." Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said Britt came to the agency's attention after his former landlord saw child porn in a box as he was helping Britt move out earlier this month. The landlord called authorities. Britt was arrested following a search of his recreational vehicle, parked at the U.S. Navy's Sigsbee Park, where he reportedly moved from Cudjoe. In it, Herrin said, detectives found the child porn along with a sawed-off shotgun and a loaded handgun. During an interview with a detective, Britt said he knows he is "sick" and that he works at schools "because he enjoys the company," Herrin said. Deputy Anthony Fuentes wrote in a report that pictures he saw from Britt's collection were "extremely disturbing," depicting naked children as young as age 6 performing sex acts. Evidence includes photographs, videos, computer hard drives and other digital storage devices.Enjoys company'From Arrest,1AHTAgets trolley extensionThe Key West City Commission on Wednesday approved but not without criticism a contract extension with Historic Tours of America to shuttle cruise-ship passengers from the U.S. Navy's Outer Mole Pier into Old Town Key West. In fiscal year 2011-12, the city took in $2,393,299 based on a disembarkation fee of $10.63 per passenger and security fees assessed to the more than 250,000 passengers who entered Key West at the Outer Mole via cruise ship. Of that, the city kept $559,449, while 40 percent of the total went to the U.S. Navy, which leases the Outer Mole to the city. The rest went to HTAto shuttle passengers at $3.55 per person from the Outer Mole. In August, when commissioners received HTA's bid for a renewed transportation contract, it was deemed non-responsive because it ignored a directive to drop off passengers in areas of town other than Front and Duval Streets. At the time, Port and Transportation Director Jim Fitton reasoned the proposed changes "were intended to alleviate tourist congestion in the Front Street area, reduce the amount of trains and trolleys on Lower Duval and, with a shorter distance to travel, reduce the cost per passenger." Once rejected, then-City Manager Jim Scholl began negotiations with HTAand City View Trolleys, fierce competitors, to come up with a contract that would continue the transportation through June 2013 with a possible six-month extension. But commissioners approved the extension with HTAunder the same terms it had. "There is an issue of over-crowding at that end of Duval Street," Commissioner Tony Yaniz said. He suggested other drop off locations, Old City Hall on Greene Street for instance, adding, "To me, that becomes a more equitable distribution of those tourist dollars. I understand why they're dropping off on Front and Duval I get it but that might be short-term thinking." Fitton said other dropoff locations would "spread the wealth. We got no bidders who said they could do that." Asked about the city running the service, "We did investigate that," even pricing out trolleys, drivers and maintenance, Fitton said. The cost would be "similar to what we pay now" but the city lacks the needed facilities to undertake the shuttle routes. "When we find a more economical and viable solution," City Attorney Shawn Smith said, "I think we'll act on that. I don't want to give anybody the impression there's only one game in town." The contract extension passed 6-0 with Commissioner Jimmy Weekley absent.Officials had sought more drop-off sitesKEY WESTBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comAnderson's returned to officeIncumbent Mayor Norman Anderson handily defeated challenger John Cromartie Tuesday in the race for city of Layton mayor. Anderson, who has held the post since winning a special election in 2006, garnered 91 votes (61.33 percent) to Cromartie's 58 (38.66 percent). More than 80 percent of Layton's 184 registered voters cast a ballot. "We had a great turnout and I ran on my accomplishments. I did not run a negative campaign and never said anything negative about anyone. I think the people think I ran an honorable campaign," Anderson said. He added that small city election or not, his campaign was an example for all of Monroe County. "I think my winning sends a message. Monroe County is small; try to take the high road," Anderson said. Anderson was slated to be sworn in again Thursday at a Layton City Council meeting. Mayor is a separately elected position in Layton, but like council seats is a two-year term. Cromartie has now lost elections in subsequent years. He sat on the council from 2003 through 2011, but was ousted by William Murchie last November. He promised at the time to challenge Anderson this year, and did just that. But his bid came up short.Small city gets a large voter turnoutLAYTONKeynoter Staff considered 101 provisional ballots, 85 that were counted and 16 that were not. Aprovisional ballot is cast in one of two instances: If you show up to the polls without photo identification or you show up at the polls and say you are a registered voter but the elections office can't verify your registration. In the case of photo IDs, "We make a copy of your voter registration card, where you registered to vote, and we present the provisional ballot and the voter registration card to the canvassing board," which compares signatures to validate the vote, Griffin said. In the case of a registration disagreement, "You have two days to get us proof that you're registered." The recount process played out last in the Keys in 2008 in the race for Circuit Court judge between Mary Vanden Brook and Tegan Slaton, who ultimately won. In the School Board District 1 race this year, incumbent Andy Griffiths handily defeated political newcomer Yvette MiraTalbott to secure a sixth four-year term. Griffiths received 20,937 votes, or 61.47 percent, to MiraTalbott's 13,121, or 38.52 percent.Recount neededFrom Election,1ABy RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com

LOCAL SINCE 1970 3rd Floor Islamorada, 33036 1009 Simonton St. Suite 3 Key West, 33040or Navy looks at new pierleaseThe Key West City Commission, which through a lease oversees the U.S. Navy-owned Outer Mole Pier as a cruise-ship berth, was blindsided by the announcement the Navy may seek bids for the lease, leaving the city on the outside looking in. On Nov. 1, Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southeast in Jacksonville solicited pitches from possible leaseholders in advance of going out for a competitive bid. Breaking the news to commissioners at a Wednesday night meeting, City Attorney Shawn Smith said, "I think we should have a very high sense of outrage over this particular process." The current lease, agreed to in 2007 and expiring in June, gives the Navy 40 percent of cruise ship disembarkation fees levied by the city. In 201112, the city grossed $2,393,299, meaning the Navy's cut was more than $957,000. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, the Outer Mole was included in an economic conveyance from the Navy to the city that includes what is now the city's Truman Waterfront. Following Sept. 11, 2001, the Navy pulled the Outer Mole off the table, citing national security. "It's going to be incumbent on us to illustrate the history involved," Smith said. "Show the public interest in this particular parcel and why it's a benefit to the city of Key West and the Navy and continuing the relationship we have." Mayor Craig Cates stressed, "We need to address this as soon as possible." Commissioner Mark Rossi asked Smith if the city would put in a bid assuming that process materialized. "This is the first step in this process so I think we need to actively engage," Smith said. The lease term would be no more than 20 years and granted in exchange for "at least fair market value to be paid to the Navy in cash or in-kind services," the Navy said. Under the existing lease, the Navy's cut of the ship money goes into a city account that is used to maintain and improve infrastructure at the Outer Mole. For instance, last year the city approved an approximately $4 million contract to replace steel sheet piles and backfill voids, among other things, at the 800foot pier.Officials say they're met with surpriseKEY WESTBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comGrove "the ordinary process at the transfer station is that customers receive sequentially numbered receipts that are printed out at the transfer station." Kevin Wilson said he suspected Sinclair and colleague James Bates found dead at his home Oct. 29 "were photocopying blank receipts and when customers paid in cash, Sinclair and Bates would issue a handwritten note and steal the money." So a sting was put in place. On May 14, "plans were formulated to take a load of trash to the Key Largo transfer station and pay with documented buy money," Grove wrote. That means he wrote down the serial number of the $20 bill with which he was going to pay. Grove got to the transfer station around 1:30 p.m., "drove onto the scale and was waved through.... I proceeded to the drop-off area and unloaded the debris. I then returned to the scale and was waved up to the office window." That's when Sinclair told Grove the tipping cost was $22.23. Grove paid with the marked $20 plus three $1 bills and Sinclair gave him "a handwritten receipt." Turns out, the receipt had the same invoice number as one electronically produced seven days earlier, with a payment of $12.35, "and indicated it had been issued by James Bates." Grove continued, "The $22.23 in cash I had given Sinclair on [May 14] was never submitted to Public Works." When interviewed on Oct. 16, Sinclair couldn't square the identical invoice numbers on the two receipts, Grove wrote. He also "could not explain why he gave me a handwritten receipt." Sinclair now suspended from his job was hired in August 1999 and earns $43,952 per year. He can request a hearing on any discipline meted out. Sinclair was released from jail on $1,000 bond. As for Bates, the county Medical Examiner's Office is still investigating his cause of death.No answersFrom Sinclair,1A www.keysnet.com BP BRIEFSGrouper opens for commercial anglersAspecial eight-day commercial harvest of shallow-water groupers in South Atlantic waters begins Tuesday at 12:01 a.m., federal fishery managers announced Friday. The opening lasts until 12:01 Nov. 13. "Landings indicate the commercial annual catch limit for gag grouper was not met, therefore NOAA Fisheries is re-opening commercial harvest of [all] shallow-water groupers," a statement says. "Since the quota was not filled, there are fish left to be caught," agency spokeswoman Kim Amendola said. Shallow-water groupers include black grouper and red grouper, the species most commonly caught in the Keys. Regular trip-limits apply. Recreational fishing for shallow-water groupers remains open. www.keysnet.com

Iris Coe MarathonReading the election results, Republicans should learn their partisan agenda is a turn-offThe Republican-led Legislature packed the state ballot with outrageous constitutional amendments that largely failed, including one power play to control the courts that two-thirds of Florida voters rejected. Gov. Rick Scott championed a tax-cut amendment he said was meant to help small businesses, but voters rightly saw it as creating one more hole in a state budget desperate for revenue. They said no. We need comprehensive tax reform, not willy-nilly tax cuts without an overarching plan to invest and grow the economy. Another proposed amendment would have left local governments broke by giving a huge property tax break to snowbirds and big business, creating pressure to raise taxes on residents. Realtors spent big bucks to try to pass the property tax overhaul, but voters saw through the same old schemes of "Come on down, we're cheap in Florida!" That's no way to grow a 21st Century economy. Voters want the state to invest in education, transportation, and, yes, the environment. They want smart jobs not cheap tricks. In every election, there are lessons. This year's lesson for the GOPremains the same as four years ago, and even of two years ago when a health-care businessman squeaked to a win for the governorship by bankrolling millions of dollars in TVads in a lowturnout election year just as the tea party rose to prominence. Lesson No. 1: You do not have a mandate from Florida voters to turn sharp right. Indeed, extremeright voters make up less than one in five voters in Florida. Scott was elected in 2010 without a majority, garnering 48.87 percent of the vote to Democrat Alex Sink's 47.72 percent. Third-party candidates took up the tiny difference. Lesson No. 2: Moderation, moderation, moderation. Independent voters now make up almost one in every four voters in the state. They want responsible leadership and governance, not partisan sniping. Failed amendments aimed at attacking Obamacare, abortion rights and the separation of church and state in public-school funding were a GOPoverreach. Lesson No. 3: Don't ignore Hispanics. Statewide, the Cuban-American vote, which historically has gone Republican, is no longer the leading indicator of how Hispanics will vote, as Puerto Ricans and other Latinos lean Democratic. In the end, the GOP's far-right direction has turned off many voters. Democrats picked up at least three congressional seats, six seats in the state House and two more in the state Senate, breaking the GOP supermajority in the Legislature. Florida's Republican leaders ignore these lessons at their peril. The Miami Herald The Grace Jones kids enjoy their annual Halloween party.Forecasting worksUnderstandably and perhaps seemingly lost in the postHurricane Sandy discussions is the expert work of the men and women at the National Hurricane Center, in the individual National Weather Service forecasts offices up and down the eastern seaboard and those who work in hurricane research producing the "spaghetti" forecast models. Their work, coupled with the evolution in the science of hurricane forecasting, undoubtedly saved many lives and provided significant advance warning for those living in the Caribbean, Bahamas and the impacted areas in the U.S. midAtlantic and northeast. The NHC issued its first advisory on what would become Hurricane Sandy at 11 a.m. Oct. 22. By 11 a.m. Oct. 25, the five-day forecast errortrack cone was covering much of the northeast. At that time, the intensity forecast of Sandy was projected to be at tropical storm strength. By 5 a.m. Oct. 26, the NHC's skinny black line (we're not supposed to focus on that) was projecting the center of a hurricane to come ashore just south of New Jersey. Still much of the northeast from Connecticut to North Carolina was well within the five-day cone. The NHC's projection of a hurricanestrength cyclone coming ashore never wavered and the strong warnings were issued about the potential for serious storm surge. Sandy's center came ashore at about 8 p.m. Oct. 29 near Atlantic City, N.J., and a mere 28 miles from where the core was projected to arrive three and a half days earlier. That is an astounding accurate forecast and while all storm projections will not likely be that proficient, it proves the value of the nation's hurricane warning system and the return derived from continued hurricane research. Andy Newman IslamoradaRomney believesAs one of the seniors who voted for the defeated challenger, I would like to thank Mitt Romney for representing our generation and our vision of America. He is a decent and honorable man who was a victim of an apparent deterioration of America's spirit of optimism. The new demography of America is more lenient, less demanding with lowered expectations and more susceptible to imagery. The realities of 2012 cannot be ignored, but we can still be very proud of Mitt Romney's faith in America's exceptionalism that most seniors, Republican or Democrat, have always believed in. Bob Guerin Marathon State officials to look at voting delaysWith Florida going into Thursday as the only state that hadn't determined which presidential candidate won, criticism of the voting system again began to mount and calls arose for a new look at voting procedures. The state's Democratic Party chairman blamed Gov. Rick Scott's administration and said moves to curtail early voting were part of what caused delays at the polls on Election Day. Most of the state experienced problem-free voting. But in Miami-Dade County, many voters remained in line long after the race was called, with some voters reportedly waiting for more than six hours to cast a ballot on Election Day. The delay was despite the fact that half the state's voters had already voted before Tuesday. "It is appalling that two days after the election, Florida was not able to report our presidential election results," Democratic Party Chairman Rod Smith said. "This embarrassment lays at the feet of Gov. Rick Scott, who made a decision to cut early voting in half and continually refused to extend early voting hours in light of the record turnout." Technically, the Republican-controlled Legislature shortened the early voting period, though Scott signed the bill. Al Gore, who lost the presidency in 2000 after similar voting confusion in Florida, also said problems in Florida and other states were the result of "governors and state legislatures that have intentionally tried to prevent people from voting." Gore said on Current TV, the cable network he founded, that long waits in Florida are "un-American." Generally, the Keys vote went well, although some absentee ballots as well some from a Marathon precinct had to be driven down to Key West for final counting on Election Night. It's not clear yet what caused the problem in Miami-Dade County. Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez asked fellow commissioners to form a group to review precinct by precinct what happened with an eye toward making recommendations about changes. Gimenez said he would ask Miami-Dade Elections Supervisor Penelope Townsley for a report on what happened and press Scott and the Legislature to extend early voting days and increase the number of voting sites. Gimenez told The Miami Herald he wants double or triple the number of early voting sites in the next presidential election. Scott has already asked Secretary of State Ken Detzner to make recommendations for what might be done better, Detzner said. "I think every year since 2000 we have improved on the process," Detzner said. "We learned something on Tuesday, and we learned something on early voting. The governor has asked the Department of State and myself to come and make some recommendations to him, which we're going to do to solve some of the issues with regard to the enthusiasm for early voting. "It's an administrative issue," Detzner continued. "I think we can address it and have it fixed for the next time and I think that's what people want and we're going to fix it." Part of the issue is that turnout was high. Detzner noted that in Miami-Dade County, nearly 30,000 absentee ballots arrived on Monday, with a similar number again on Tuesday. "And those ballots have to be opened, signatures have to be validated and so it takes a little bit of time to count those votes, but most importantly, we're counting them accurately and that takes a little extra time and the turnout being so big, just took a little extra time," Detzner said. There were also reports of very long lines in a couple of southwest Florida counties. Elections supervisors always say they hope for blowout elections because many of the problems with the system are there all the time but only get revealed in close contests. Florida had that on Tuesday, with the tally for President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney nearly even as most counties finished their regular vote counts. The state's final outcome was largely moot because the election was decided in other states, with Obama winning without Florida's help. Other critics of the process on Tuesday pointed to the state's long ballot. Voters had to wade through 11 constitutional amendments, several of which were difficult reading. Officials don't keep tabs on the average time it takes voters to fill out their ballots, but several observers noted the process likely took longer this week slowing things down because of the long list of amendments. Most of the amendments failed.Florida was last state to finish countBy DAVID ROYSE News Service of FloridaELECTION 2012
The recipe for Thanksgiving travel is likely to make travelers a little bitter this year. Americans can expect airports to be busier and planes to be fuller than ever, according to a forecast by the main trade association for U.S. airlines two weeks ahead of the holiday. And fares are already more expensive than a year ago. Airlines for America expects nearly 24 million travelers to fly from Nov. 16 through Nov. 27. That's up slightly from a year ago. Last year's tally was flat from 2010. Traffic on the nation's airlines is still 10 percent below the peak travel years of 2006 and 2007. This year's uptick is in line with "the sluggish but consistent economic recovery," aviation consultant Mark Kiefer said. The unemployment rate has improved in recent months, as has consumer confidence two key indicators of travel demand. For those traveling on the busiest days around Thanksgiving, planes are expected to be close to 90 percent full, the trade group says. That would be a record for the holiday. That forecast is an average, so expect most flights at peak hours to be completely full. Nov. 25 is projected as the busiest travel day, followed by Nov. 21 and Nov. 26. Flights will be packed tighter because there are fewer of them. Airlines have been reducing flights to match demand, which in turn allows them to raise prices. Domestic fares are up 4 percent so far this year compared with the first ten months of 2011, according to the industry group. Kiefer expects that slight increase in fares to continue as airlines keep scaling back when they can. Cutting flights also allows airlines to save on fuel, often their biggest expense. Collectively U.S. airlines'revenue rose 5.6 percent in the first nine months of this year. Fuel costs rose by 6.2 percent, cutting the amount earned per passenger. On average the 10 largest U.S. airlines made just 50 cents for every passenger they flew from January through September, Airlines for America said.

Robin Smith Westcott in a letter to Florida Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty called it "an abusive practice" and "a troubling new trend." "This activity threatens not only homeowners'financial stability but also the state's economic recovery," Westcott wrote. Aspokeswoman for McCarty declined comment on Oct. 31. Sam Miller, spokesman for the Florida Insurance Council, an industry group, said Westcott's letter was the first he'd heard about the practice. Westcott said she heard about it from insurance agents and then from lawyers who handle insurance cases.Her letter cites three cases, all involving Universal Property and Casualty Insurance Co., but Westcott said her office has received about 10 complaints total. She was unsure how widespread the practice is but said it could be extensive because Universal is one of the state's largest insurers and has acknowledged it uses the procedure as a matter of routine.She wrote that it should be considered an unfair trade practice to obtain a credit report after a customer files a claim and then cite previous instances of financial difficulty such as bankruptcy, foreclosure and liens to cancel a policy even though the consumer may have paid premiums for years."With Florida leading the nation in bankruptcies and foreclosures, many homeowners are finding themselves in these types of financial situations," Westcott wrote. She urged McCarty to work with insurers to adopt standards "that recognize Florida's unique circumstances with regard to the foreclosure crisis."AUniversal spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a telephone message seeking comment. Westcott also wrote that homeowners often are then unable to obtain or afford other coverage because their policies have been canceled on grounds they misrepresented their credit backgrounds. They could be driven to the state-backed Citizens Property Insurance Corp., which is trying to spin off policies to private companies to reduce its risk, Westcott wrote. However, not even Citizens, created as Florida's insurer of last resort but now the state's biggest property insurance company, will write coverage for a customer who has had a policy canceled for misrepresentation, she noted. Those who are required to have coverage under the terms of their mortgages then must resort to highpriced lender-placed policies. If they cannot afford such coverage, they may lose their homes, Westcott wrote. The letter cites three complaints involving Fort Lauderdale-based Universal that Westcott's office received. In each case, policies were canceled due to financial issues such as bankruptcy that occurred up to four years before the customers applied for coverage. Westcott said the company should have checked their credit reports immediately after writing the policies instead of waiting until they filed claims months or years later. State law permits an insurer to cancel coverage for material misrepresentation after 90 days.Many consumer advocates also question the legitimacy of using credit reports at any time as a reliable risk predictor, Westcott noted. She also pointed out the Florida Legislature has "strictly regulated the use of credit reports and credit scores for underwriting purposes."In one case involving a condominium unit policy, Universal reinstated the coverage and paid the claim after Westcott's office pointed out the insurer's guidelines for past financial problems apply only to policies for single-family homes. In a similar case, though, Universal has stuck with its decision to void the policy, Westcott wrote. Westcott said one policy was canceled due to a $400 small claims court judgment. She doesn't believe the consumers intentionally misrepresented their financial background, noting insurance agents filled out their applications in some cases.Some policies are cancelled after claimsBy BILL KACZORAssociated PressINSURANCE BusinessWhich dashboard is best for you?Question: We recently hired a new bookkeeper who has converted us to QuikBooks. She showed us several really "spiffy" reports that could be generated. I think she called them a "dashboard."After our meeting, my partner and I discussed the kinds of information we would like to see on our dashboard but felt we were missing something. What kinds of things do most businesses have on their dashboard?Answer: Most small businesses in the Keys don't really use this useful tool called a "dashboard." Owners of these businesses will tell you their checkbook balance is all the "dashboard" they need. What these owners are missing, however, is that their checkbook balance only tells them where they are today. It says nothing about how they got there or where to go looking if where they are isn't satisfactory. Monthly financial statements help in this regard, but really savvy business owners want vital information about their business much more frequently than once a month. And sometimes, even savvier business owners want information that their financial statements don't provide. This is where your "dashboard" comes in. The information shown on a typical dashboard reflects not only where the business is that week, but how it got there and what next week is likely to look like. When designing dashboards for business owners, I like to break them into three sections: Liquidity, profitability and operations. The liquidity section has information about cash flow and things that directly affect cash flow. We show the checkbook balance here, but we also show accounts receivable, inventory and accounts payable. If the business is large enough to prepare weekly cash forecasts, we show forecasted cash balances here, as well. In the profitability section, we typically show a weekly break-even calculation and include the elements that make up this calculation: Sales, estimated average contribution margin, estimated weekly fixed cost, and estimated weekly profit. The operations section is my favorite, and it's the toughest section to put together. The things that go in this section really require owners to think about the non-financial things that drive their business and how these drivers relate to the income and expenses shown under the "profitability" section of the "dashboard."Atypical small business will have only two or three items under this category. The items that are included may be unique to each business. It frequently occurs that two of the same kinds of businesses will have different items on their dashboard because the owners run the businesses differently. Nonetheless, here are a few common key drivers for a couple of typical Keys businesses:Service businesses (plumbers, air-conditioner repair, appliance repair): Hours charged to the customer and the average hourly rate.Small retailer: Number of sales tickets, average sale, number of inventory turns annualized.Resort: Occupancy rate, average revenue per occupant, number of room nights.Dive-shop operator: Number of customers, average revenue per customer.

But when the final numbers were tallied Tuesday, Smith's 17,779 votes were good for 50.71 percent compared to Hammond's 17,279 votes, or 49.28 percent. The only closer local race was the District 3 Monroe County School Board race between Ed Davidson and John Welsh. Davidson received more votes but on Friday a recount was held because there was just a .5 percent margin in votes, and that margin triggers a recount. Smith said his election was so close because of party-line voting. "Since Mosquito Control was formed, we've had partisan commissioners. It was in part to mirror the [Monroe] County Commission. I don't think they needed to add the partisan side of that," he said. He said he's planned in the past to pursue doing away with partisan elections. "We're the only one in the state, if not the country, that has partisan [mosquito] commissioners. The partisan situation doesn't really have a role in what we do. The mosquitoes are going to bite," he said. "I truly don't think [residents care] what party we are." Smith also said he doesn't believe the close vote was due to backlash for his involvement in what many perceived as Mosquito Control's version of the so-called gang of three. He, outgoing Commissioner Joan Lord-Papy and then-Commissioner Charles Langstaff almost always voted as a bloc, especially in their support of then-district Director Ed Fussell, who has since retired. "I don't think that had as much to do with it. If you roll back history 16 years ago, the gang of three was [myself, LordPapy] and Bill Shaw," he said. The later supposed voting bloc of Smith, LordPapy and Langstaff grew out of Shaw's and thenCommissioner Dick Rudell's conflicts with Fussell, Smith said. "Now Langstaff is gone, and Rudell is gone, and [Commissioner Phil Goodman] hasn't been able to get his way. Now all of a sudden there's a gang of four. As commissioners, we'll never agree on everything," Smith said. Hammond said he's disappointed but ran a clean campaign and respects the outcome. "This is my first time ever considering to run my own campaign. To get this close, within 500 votes, I have to be proud of the work my supporters did to get to this point. There were more disgruntled citizens in Monroe County than my opponent felt, but he was victorious and I congratulate him for it," he said. Hammond said he doesn't agree with Smith's "party line vote" idea. "I don't'think it's party line. I think it's that almost half of [Keys voters] wanted a change and I appreciate their vote," he said. "I have faith in the system. We are so fortunate that we are not 90 miles from here. I woke up today not victorious, but we have a great system."Commissioner: It wasn't due to gang of 3MOSQUITO CONTROL Retail Display AdsFor Friday, Nov. 23 Reporter Deadline Thurs., Nov. 15 before 5 pm For Nov. 23 & 24 LAttitudes Deadline Friday, Nov. 16 before 5 pm For Sat.

Canes end year on a high noteBlocked kicks, forced turnovers and a stout defense powered the Coral Shores football Hurricanes to a 17-7 upset win over LaSalle in Thursday's season finale. The Canes (6-4) avenged an earlier 18-0 loss to LaSalle's Royals in a key Southeastern Football Conference contest, and left the squad feeling good heading into the off-season. "We got to end on a high note," head coach Ed Holly said Friday, his voice raspy from a road game that required a lot of volume. "It was important to win this game for our seniors, who have done so much for us," Holly said. "Our guys played with a lot of passion and pride, executed and came out on top. It made us proud." The Canes struck early, scoring twice in the first quarter off two big defensive plays. Sophomore cornerback Paul Pauchey blocked a Royal punt after the Cane defense stopped LaSalle's first series. "Paul's been working on that," Holly said. "This time, it worked." Senior halfback Jimmy Rhyne finished a 30-yard drive with his 7-yard touchdown run. LaSalle's second drive fared no better. Cane senior safety and quarterback Addison Duma-Kenny picked off a Royal pass at midfield and returned it to the LaSalle 37. Senior fullback Kodi Roberts barged for a 14-yard touchdown run and a 14-point lead. After a scoreless second quarter, LaSalle got on the board with a 1-yard touchdown dive after a long ground gain. But LaSalle's strong kicking game later faltered when a try for 35-yard field goal was blocked by the 6foot-1 Rhyne. Pauchey, the Canes' punter and placekicker, went down with a shoulder injury. Dylan Naughton filled in capably at cornerback. Junior Jack Hatfield stepped in as kicker, delivering decent punts and hitting a 21-yard field goal with three minutes left that put the game out of LaSalle's reach. "We made the plays we did not make the first time we played them," Holly said. The entire Coral Shores defense featuring standouts Tom Johnson and Will Ismer turned up the intensity and largely controlled a fast LaSalle offense. "Alberto Anderson played one of the best games I've ever seen from an outside linebacker," Holly said. "Alberto was amazing." Holly said he expects the Hurricanes to be well-represented in the all-conference picks from the league's first season.Coral Shores knocks down the RoyalsUSING HIS HEADCanes get the better of ConchsIt would be an eventful afternoon/evening for Coral Shores High forward Iris Dunn. That was evident early in Tuesday's soccer game at Key West, a game in which the Hurricanes would continue their mastery of the Conchs. Less than two minutes had elapsed in the first half when Dunn, with the Back Yard field still in full sunshine, scored on a breakaway, beating keeper Angela Martin. Not long afterward, there she was again, dribbling toward Martin in a one-on-one encounter that ended with another goal and a 2-0 lead. Strong-legged and aggressive, Dunn was clearly looking like the best player on the field. "Aworkhorse," her coach, Arthur Paterson, would say later. Key West countered late in the half with a goal by the long-striding Caila DeAbreu, giving the Conchs, down by only 2-1, hope for an upset as they gathered for intermission instructions from coach Scott Paul. But 15 minutes into the second half, under the lights, Hurricane midfielder Cailin Reckwardt scored on a free kick to make it 3-1. Then, what had been a less-than scintillating match gave way to a bruising battle, typical of the physical nature of every game between the teams. The Hurricanes went into defense mode, with Dunn moving to sweeper, helping to turn away the few attacks the Conchs mounted. The game wound down in a hurry. Afree kick by the Conchs'Libby Isherwood could not be converted, and soon the action was down by the Key West goal. Bodies collided. Curses filled the balmy air. "Let's call the game off," said Coral Shores coach Arthur Paterson, as he watched Dunn get a red card for profanity. And it was called with nine seconds left 3-1, Coral Shores. It was the opening game of the season for the Hurricanes. The Conchs, who had lost to Venice, 8-1, three days earlier, dropped to 1-2. When Dunn got to the bench, she told Paterson and her teammates she hadn't said what the referee believed he heard her say. "Can I go over to him and apologize?" she asked. After a discussion with both officials who told her it would be up to the Florida High School Athletic Association to determine any disciplinary action she reflected on the nature of the Keys rivalry: "They play physical, kind of reckless, and in high school, girls tend to get emotional."Game called early for profanityGIRLS PREP SOCCERConch boys heading to stateKey West High School cross-country records fell like leaves Thursday morning at the Region 4-2Ameet at Mills Pond Park in Fort Lauderdale as the Conch boys team, featuring a one-shoe wonder, qualified for the state meet and the girls squad just missed advancing. The boys team finished third the top six in the 13team field advanced in an average time of 17:59.7, threetenths of a second shy of the school record set in 2004. The Conchs trailed only winner Pine Crest and American Heritage. The girls team was seventh with an average time of 22:12 in the 5K (3.1 miles), a heartbreaking one point behind Lincoln Park, the last statemeet qualifier. "It was the best finish ever at regionals for both teams," said coach Terence White. Junior Brock Guzman and sophomore Everett Wagner led the way, finishing 12th and 13th, respectively, in 17:25 and 17:26. Guzman bettered his best time by 20 seconds and Wagner lowered his by 18. "Brock lost his shoe and ran the last two and a half miles in one shoe he said it didn't bother him," White said. "Those two run so well together. It's very competitive, yet extremely supportive." Connor Chaney was next, finishing 31st in 18:20.42, a split second ahead of junior Julian Ramirez (18:20.78). Chaney lowered his freshman record. Junior Tyler Hancock was 35th in 18:26.

Marathon next travels to Palmer Trinity on Tuesday for a 3 p.m.contest. Dolphins, Key West battle to a tieThe big news Wednesday afternoon at the Key West High soccer field, where the Conchs faced Marathon in the season opener, was that Jason Clifford was back. Tired of battles with players'parents, Clifford resigned under pressure as head coach of the Conchs after the 201011 season. Amaster soccer strategist, he had been the coach for 13 years. But Wednesday he was back on the sidelines as coach Rob Eggers'assistant, brandishing, to Eggers'amusement, his own inimitable brand of sarcasm. "Our team is the team in red," he called out to one of the young players as the game got under way. More came quickly: "Who's on the post, who's the outside half?" "Kamen, can you win a header some day, you're 6-9." "Justin, you have to mark. It's not OK to be near someone." Midway through the first half, Marathon took the lead, 1-0, on a hard shot by Yoniel Esquirol, whose hustling style impressed Dolphins coach Jim Murphy. "Yoniel didn't play last year so it's nice to have him back up front," Murphy said later. Roberto Remercy tried a long shot for the Conchs, which Clifford found incredulous: "Roberto, 45 yards? If you weighed 700 pounds you couldn't shoot from there." To another player, he shouted, "If you think it's funny, go over and sit with your mom. Yeah, it's funny to be losing to Marathon." It was still 1-0 at halftime, when Eggers, whose beard was scruffier than Clifford's, got some words in edgewise. "The crispness of your passes is lacking," he told his players. The Conchs began to dominate the possessions in the second half and, just before the water break, Torrin Jacobsen broke free. "Two touches, Torrin," Clifford yelled. Jacobsen dribbled twice before launching aFamiliar face is on sideline for the ConchsBOYS PREP SOCCER PREP FOOTBALLBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter Contributor By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorSee Cross Country,2BBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorSee Soccer,2B

Norwe g ian offshore powerboat racer Tor Staubo partnered with veteran throttleman John Tomlinson of Miami to take the lead in the Superboat Unlimited class. Staubo, a resident of Oslo, and Tomlinson piloted the 48-foot catamaran Gasse at an avera g e speed of 101.3 mph on the 41.7-mile course, despite stron g winds and choppy water. "It was rou g her than I thou g ht it was g oin g to be, so we weren't seein g near the speeds I thou g ht I would see," Tomlinson said. "We'd run it hard where it was calmer, and then out halfway to turn one and across turn two I really just tried to take care of it and not make a mistake." Their efforts at balance paid off, since their performance topped all other entries in the 40-boat fleet. Sweden's Michael Silfverber g of Stockholm and Ni g el Hook, a Brit livin g in San Die g o, won the 10-entry Superboat Extreme class in L u cas Oil MAVTV They, too, ran a measured race. "We could have g one quite a bit faster within the speed limit, but we just wanted to stay a certain amount in front of the other boats," Hook admitted shortly after the race. "Everybody's runnin g a little bit conservative because it's the first day of the race." In sharp contrast to the 2011 event's first day, when two powerboat racers died (a third man also died last year), officials reported no accidents durin g Wednesday's racin g "We're just happy to be in one piece everybody in one piece after last year," Tomlinson said. "So far everythin g 's g oin g as we hoped it would."

The dawn of the holiday season also marks an onslaught from the publishing world a rush of food books that begins in August and refuses to slow down until every family in America has gifted (and perhaps regifted) at least a dozen. Or maybe it just feels that way. The upshot of all this is that there truly is a food book for everyone on your shopping list. Should you care to go that route, we've sussed out some of the best to help streamline at least that leg of your shopping trip.Cookbook geeksFancy a sunderland pudding? Ever wonder how to dress a calf's head? Publisher Andrews McMeel has teamed up with the American Antiquarian Society to publish reproductions of 100 cookbooks documenting the early American cooking experience. "American Cookery" (Andrews McMeel, $22.99) by Amelia Simmons was originally published in 1796 and is believed to be the first cookbook to document American culinary techniques. It offers a window into those days with recipes for items such as spruce beer and tongue pie set beside page images from the original cookbook. Also part of the series is America's first Jewish cookbook, "Jewish Cookery Book: On Principles of Economy" (Andrews McMeel, $28.99) by Esther Levy. It originally was published in 1871 and includes recipes for fish balls and frimsel (noodle) soup. Its recipes, menu suggestions and household management tips aimed to help European immigrants adapt to their new country while maintaining their religious heritage. Both volumes are perfect for the armchair anthropologist in your life.Regular geeksDoes your loved one stand over a pot of boiling water with a thermometer? Wonder why salt makes steak juicy? Muse out loud about why russets make fluffier mashed potatoes than red bliss? We got it covered. "The Science of Good Cooking" (America's Test Kitchen, $40) by the folks behind Cook's Illustrated magazine doesn't just offer "400 recipes engineered for perfection," it also covers 50 basic concepts explaining why the recipes work. Useful sidebars showcase tips and techniques use a skillet, not a wok, to stir-fry and charts that check your measurements (a cup of all-purpose flour should weigh 5 ounces) make it a handy reference guide. "Modernist Cuisine at Home" (The Cooking Lab, $140) is even sexier. The laboratory that last year produced "Modernist Cuisine," a six-volume encyclopedia of molecular gastronomy by Nathan Myhrvold, has turned its blow torches and sous vide machines on home cooking. It's a monstrously fun and shockingly practical cookbook that truly lets you get your geek on in the kitchen. Because who knew that a touch of citric acid makes the ultimate grilled cheese? Or that scrambled eggs can be dispensed from a whipping canister and that baking soda helps caramelize vegetables?Nostalgia houndsAmericans have been hungry for nostalgia, and publishers are happy to feed them. "101 Classic Cookbooks: 501 Classic Recipes" (Rizzoli International Publications, $50) boils down the classic, most iconic cookbooks to 501 recipes, drawing from books that span Fannie Farmer's 1896 "The Boston Cooking School Cook Book" to Thomas Keller's 1999 "The French Laundry Cookbook." Sneaking in between are recipes such as sole meuniere from Jacques Pepin's "La Technique," Bengal red lentils from Julie Sahni's "Classic Indian Vegetarian and Grain Cooking," and banana bread from Mark Bittman's "How to Cook Everything." There also is the incredibly charming "Handwritten Recipes" (Perigee, $20), a collection of found recipes by bookseller Michael Popek. Tucked between the pages of books brought into his store, Popek found the jots and scribbles of recipes from unknown cooks. In "Handwritten Recipes," he collects those notes and recipes, assembling a book that is as much lovely artifact as cookbook.For the bakerLove dessert but hate to fuss? Astout float from "Sinfully Easy Delicious Desserts" (Artisan Books, $29.95) by Alice Medrich is the treat for you. The float is joined by dozens more recipes such as peanut butter pavlova, honey caramelized figs, and food processor chocolate mousse that are just as easy. And easily as tasty. "Piece of Cake: Home Baking Made Simple" (Rizzoli, $29.95) by David Muniz and David Lesniak offers more than 120 recipes for classic American treats think brownies, peanut butter cookies and blueberry muffins. Black and white cheesecake, an honest-to-goodness New York crumb cake, and cakes from bundts to babkas join the fun. Home-baked pies are the aspiration of many a cook. "AYear of Pies" (Lark, $19.95) by Ashley English offers strawberry, rhubarb and ginger hand pies for spring, pumpkin tiramisu pie in fall and pies for all the days in between. Savory pies like curried winter vegetable and galumpkis pie the pie version of Polish stuffed cabbage mix things up in the colder months.Practical or historical, they're hereMICHELE KAYALAssociated PressTHE READING ROOM Photo courtesy ASSOCIATED PRESSA Year of Pies'gives you all you need to know for pies of all seasons. 8201 Ma r i n a Villa D r Duck Key This unit at Marina Villas at Hawk's Cay on beautiful Duck Key JUST SOLD Lookin g for your piece of paradise?

The mission: Reduce the incidence and minimize the impact of domestic and sexual abuse in Monroe County by directing victims to appropriate, effective programs and services. Toward that goal, the shelter, with facilities from Key Largo to Key West, has several upcoming events lined up: Pearls in Paradise, taking place Dec. 14 at a waterfront Key Largo home. The host mentioned to her Realtors that before she sells her home, she wanted to host an event for the Domestic Abuse Shelter because the services are so important, thus Pearls in Paradise. The benefit, from 6 to 10 p.m., will serve as the debut performance of Feder, Atkins and Davidson as the Groove Mysters. Tickets are $100 per person, which includes catering by Cheryl Martin and ALittle Taste of the Keys.

Try this light boat picnicThe phrase we could take a picnic is like music to my ears. My husband knows exactly how to make any outing appealing to me, so when he suggested a picnic lunch on the boat recently, I was hooked. Since we conducted our four-week elimination program a year ago, we gave up gluten (mainly wheat) in the house and I have been experimenting with new recipes and menus. Finding good substitutes for bread, pasta, pizza, cakes, pies, cookies, beer and other items that contain wheat is challenging. Sometimes we just forgo them. Wheat has been listed as a cause of food allergies creating inflammation in the body. That inflammation can show itself in different ways. In my husbands case, it caused his arthritis to flare up and now he controls it by eating no wheat instead of taking more anti-inflammatory pills like ibuprofen. That was our main reason for giving up wheat. The added benefit is that we feel less bloated and less sluggish, and we lost weight. Our wheat-free picnic included a fast and easy hummus made by blending a can of chick peas with olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, cayenne and cumin. I found this to be a good substitute for cheese when we eliminated dairy during the program, as it provided the salty, savory taste I was craving. I added a simple tuna and celery salad. Cut up some carrots, celery, cheese, rolled up some ham. Threw in some corn chips, salsa, fruit and energy bars, and we were set. We made a short boat trip out beyond Newfound Harbor off Big Pine Key, where we could anchor the boat and enjoy the view, fresh air and wheat-free picnic lunch and we didnt miss the bread at all. Breakfasts have become more interesting since I discovered pumpkin puree. Ive never been a big fan of pumpkin pie but I have a newfound respect for pumpkin. I found a recipe in a book called Practical Paleo for gluten-free pumpkin pancakes using pumpkin, eggs, maple syrup and baking soda. They are very light and tasty. I also make a pumpkin smoothie blending pumpkin, oatmeal, banana, maple syrup and milk. It is surprisingly good and combines so many nutrients in one cup. Healthy living includes healthy eating choices. In our case, our food choices reduce our need for medications. My high blood pressure has come down thanks to eating more fruit and vegetables and less meat, sugar and wheat. My husbands arthritis is hardly bothering him and he is jogging again.Recycles DayOn another note, Nov. 15 is America Recycles Day, a program of Keep America Beautiful. Although this is just one day, the idea is we should make reducing, reusing and recycling a daily habit. We just returned from a trip to the Dominican Republic, which has some beautiful mountain scenery and spectacular coastlines. Sadly, in one particular section of the coast, Hurricane Sandy had washed ashore an overwhelming amount of floating marine debris. There were so many plastic bottles, bags, packaging and food containers bordering the shoreline, the debris spread about 15 feet into the water. Seeing so much debris in one place was a sharp shocking reminder of the vast quantities of disposable items used and discarded so easily. America Recycles Day is another good reminder.

Throw a pet in the mix, and it's a recipe for disaster. But Sheron Long, a frequent traveler and author of "Dog Trots Globe To Paris and Provence," say it's worth the trouble. "Every trip was better when Chula could be with us," she said of her Shetland sheepdog. "She was so excited, I could imagine her dog's eye view of the world. It causes you to explore and go see different things and meet people." The U.S. Department of Transportation estimates more than 2 million pets and other animals are transported by air each year. Pets aren't allowed on Amtrak trains, Greyhound buses or cruise lines, but they can go on many regional train, bus and boat lines. The majority of fourlegged carry-on passengers are dogs, but some airlines allow rabbits, birds and other small animals. Experts say before including a pet in travel plans, consider whether it would enjoy the experience. "Some dogs don't like to travel, some love it," said Kelly E. Carter, the pet-travel expert for AOL's Paw Nation and a Chihuahua owner. "You have to know your pet." Caroline Golon's two Persian cats "are not big fans of car travel" the only way that they can travel since their breed is banned by many airlines so they don't go on trips. Golon said when they travel, the family stops at pet-friendly hotels rather than drive nonstop. "Stopping overnight gives them a chance to use the litter box at their leisure and eat and drink comfortably," said Golon, the founder of High Paw Media. Gwen Cooper, the author of "Homer's Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned About Love and Life with a Blind Wonder Cat," said animals pick up on their owners'moods, "which means if you're nervous, your cat or dog is going to be nervous too. The best way to avoid being nervous is to prepare you and your pet ahead of time and think through as many contingencies as possible." For eligible cats, as well as dogs, airlines have size requirements for pets in the cabin, so a small pet must fit in a carrier that can be stowed under a seat and larger ones must be checked in. Long's dog weighs 30 pounds, so 9-year-old Chula has to fly in cargo. During the holidays, though, when planes are fuller and lines are longer, some airlines ban pets in cargo, as well as times when the heat or cold is intense. Certain breeds can never fly on some airlines, including those considered to have bullying characteristics, like pit bulls, and snub-nosed animals like shih tzus or Persian cats because of potential breathing problems. Animals that travel on Amtrak, Greyhound or cruises get a ticket to ride through their roles as service animals. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, trained helper animals such as guide dogs or signal dogs must be allowed. Pet accommodations at airports differ, though every airport has animal-relief areas. Some are easy to find and most or all areas are located outside of security checkpoints. Federal transportation guidelines require animals to be removed from carriers, so pets should be collared and leashed especially cats. Pet carriers are not Xrayed, but owners'hands may be wiped for chemical testing. The hassle of traveling is only half over once the plane lands. Carter, who once canceled a trip in which she and her dog were hoping to try a new hotel in Northern California, recounted how the hotel worded its pet policy online: "We are smokefree and pet-free." "My God, are pets being considered killers, like smoke? That's a sign people don't want to be around pets," she said. Lisa Porter, CEO of a website that lists pet-friendly places to stay and activities around the country, said more businesses are catering to customers with a pet in tow than ever before. For example, vineyards and wineries have opened their tours to pets, and as many as 90 percent of hotels in some cities are pet-friendly, she said.Restrictions can be cause for headachesAssociated PressTRAVEL Associated Press photo by SHERON LONGChula,a 30-pound Shetland sheepdog and veteran traveler,rests on a bed in the Sheraton Hotel at the Charles de Gaulle Airport after a long flight from San Francisco to Paris,France. Helpful pet-travel tipsTraveling with a pet isn't easy,since there are more rules than destinations. Kelly E.Carter,president of thejetsetpets.com and AOL's resident pet travel expert, and Sheron Long,frequent international traveler and author of "Dog Trots Globe To Paris and Provence,"share their tips: Research before you go and make reservations early.Airlines offer a limited number of cabin spots for pets,and they are first-come,first-served. Know the weight,age and kennel size and closure restrictions for the airline you're flying. Fees vary for pets,so have your checkbook or credit card ready at the airport. Know how much room you will have under the seat for your pet and your legs. www.Seatguru.com lists the dimensions on any seat on any aircraft. Ask for a window seat to avoid your pet getting kicked if fellow passengers want to leave their seats. Find out about frequent flier miles,since those policies differ with each airline. To prevent accidents,don't give your pet food or water on the flight.Ask for ice cubes and let the animal lick them as she needs them. Carry a portfolio that includes your pet's proof of rabies,vaccination records, a photo,your vet's name and number,a list of medicines and references from managers of hotels where you have stayed. Try to fly nonstop. For international travelers,every country has its own regulations,paperwork and quarantine periods.Be prepared and patient. Don't give your pet a sedative,since most airlines won't take a sedated animal. Food is not allowed in pet carriers but tape it to the outside in case the flight is delayed or if it lasts longer than 12 hours. If your pet is flying in cargo,ask how it will be transported from the terminal to the plane.Some airlines have air-conditioned or heated vans. Pack your pet with a toy or a piece of your clothing to reassure your pet while you are separated.

If youve seen any of the trailers for Flight, you might reasonably assume that the film is an actionpacked mystery thriller. Well, you would be wrong. Flight does start off strong; from an early morning bedroom scene (with little left to the imagination) to the cockpit of a plummeting plane, the viewer is promised a slam-bang action movie. But those first twenty minutes are misleading and conceal the real premise of the film. Although it does have some great action sequences, especially the cockpit scenes as the plane is going down, the film is neither a mystery nor a thriller. Its really a character study about a man fighting a battle with his inner demons, one that hes losing. And the only mystery is whether he will ultimately face the music and finally face the truth about himself and his addiction. Starring Denzel Washington, John Goodman, Don Cheadle and Bruce Greenwood and directed by Robert Zemeckis (Cast Away, Forrest Gump), Flight is a roller coaster ride of emotions that has the audience reluctantly rooting for the good guy; reluctantly because the good guy also happens to be the bad guy. The viewer is torn between wanting him to win and knowing that, rightfully, he should lose. Washington is airline captain Whip Whitaker, who pulls off an impossibly heroic crash landing of an out-ofcontrol airliner, saving almost everyone aboard. But six people do not survive and soon the blame game and finger pointing turns to Whitaker. Washingtons Whitaker is an imperfect version of Sully Sullenberger, the famous real-life pilot who landed his aircraft safely in the Hudson River. As Whitaker hides out to escape the media circus surrounding the crash, the pressure on him mounts and he slowly comes to grips with the fact that his inner demons are winning. The film features a performance by Denzel Washington that will surely be Oscar nominated and, while the rest of the cast is excellent, Flight is Washingtons film, one he carries almost single-handedly. His best roles seem to be flawed characters whose good hearts are hidden under several layers of bad. And this role is no exception, as he brilliantly peels away all the bad layers before finally revealing the good. But, as good as Washington is, John Goodman is better. With only a few scenes in the movie, Goodman breezes in and steals every one of those scenes. He plays his character, Harling Mays, with aWashington and Goodman at top of their gameFILM Denzel Washington portrays airline pilot Whip Whitaker in Robert Zemekis film,'Flight.'See Wanous,7BMixed-media works open eyes and mindsWooden pins wired together hug the palm tree like another layer of bark. Smooth stones define a space in an outdoor, reimagined garden. And sculptured fish float somewhere between the real world and the one of your imagination. The collection of sculptures that inaugurate this season's Studios offerings is an imaginative look at nature and how man interacts with nature. Called "Understory," the collection by four Miamibased artists has been curated by Anja Marais, a Key West sculptor who also maintains a Miami studio. The works are on display through midJanuary at the main garden behind The Studios' Armory building on White Street and in more intimate gardens outside artist cottages restored and rebuilt on Ashe Street. Marais explains that "Understory is defined as shrubs and plants growing beneath the main canopy of a forest. Key West is a vibrant arts community that blossoms in its creative endeavors next to and sometimes in the shade of its larger neighbor city Miami. "This exhibition's goal," she adds, "is to cross the lines between our sister cities and art communities."Frank HyderMixed media artist Frank Hyder, who has participated in more than 150 group shows and has had over 80 solo exhibitions throughout North, South and Central America, is one of the four featured in "Understory." His cage fish groupings are installed in the Nature Garden by the Studios' residency cottages, where visiting artists live and work in a collaborative movement designed to magnify the work of a few into influencing many. Organizers of the show note that Hyder's work is acclaimed for "raising social and ecological questions with beauty." And, his pieces can be found in numerous museums, corporate and private collections. In Venzuela, his work enjoys status in public commissions.Regina JestrowArtist Regina Jestrow, originally from Queens, NY,UnderstoryatThe Studios addssculptural gemsBy LAttitudes StaffART www.mandalayoceanfrontgrilltiki.com Dappled light and tropical foliage provide the perfect backdrop for mixed media artist Frank Hyder's cage fish group,installed in the Nature Garden at The Studios of Key West's residency cottages on Ashe Street.

He is such fun to watch in this movie. Don Cheadle and Bruce Greenwood are believable as a lawyer and union representative who, against all odds, are, and remain, on Whitakers side. Also impressive are Brian Geraghty as Washingtons terrified co-pilot, and Tamara Tunie as the chief flight attendant. The camera work of Don Burgess is impeccable, as would be expected from a seventime Oscar nominee. And the FX team does a great job the special effects are woven seamlessly into the film and greatly enhance the tension, especially in the airplane scenes. If there is one area that could have been improved, it would be the pacing of the movie. Zemeckis stretches out too many of Whitakers moments of weakness and, at one hundred & thirty-eight minutes, Flight is simply too long. Atighter script and fewer scenes of Whitakers addiction would probably have improved the film. We get the message early on and some scenes are unnecessarily repetitive. But the movie is worth seeing and I do recommend it.

Her work on display at The Studios integrates organic "man-made" shapes and textures with the master sculptor, Mother Nature. In May, during a monthlong residency at The Studios, she created "Invasive Species," works that incorporated more than 300 embroidered, dress-shirt fabric flowers planted in the garden. Her newest installation, called "Mushrooms on Persimmon," is constructed of canvas, persimmon logs and copper nails. Acasual observer might mistake her work for the natural decay and rebirth that comes in any tropical clime. But look closer and you can see she's reversed that process and from decay creates new life. It's quite something. "In my work," she says, "I try to translate the movement of color and design, combining ideas from traditional art of quilting and fine art into my own personal geometic, organic and botanical sculptures as well as three-dimensional wall handings."Alette SimmonsJimenezVisual artist Alette Simmons-Jimenez brings a mixed media perspective to her art, with experience in video, painting, sculpture and installations featured in such places as Sculpture Magazine, Arte Al Limite, the Atlanta Journal, Jane Magazine, Esquire and The Miami Herald. She was the first solo artist to exhibit at The Studios of Key West in 2006 and is the founder of Artformz, an artistrun project that has curated, created or produced exhibitions in Valencia, Spain and a 2008 Knight Arts Challenge winner called "Giants in the City." Her two pieces on exhibit in Key West are titled "Flight" and "Claw," which can be found at the entrance garden off White Street.Gerry SteccaSculptor and painter Gerry Stecca does marvelous and inventive things with wooden clothespins. He got the inspiration after creating a dress made entirely from wiredtogether pins. That was back in 2002. Since then, he's found himself drawn more and more to this mixed media expression, which he says comes together in sections that are created in a process not unlike what happens with weaving on a loom. "Mostly the work flows as planned, yet it often changes directions due to the nuances, accidents and lucky occasional wrong turns in the process and medium itself." See for yourself how his "Clothespin Works" blend into the garden setting. One "airily reaching up towards the Poinciana canopy and the other an embracing sheath that ascends a towering palm." Light and the settings for his works change viewing perspectives. "How my work seats in its environment, the shadow patterns it generates, the appearance changes caused by light, time of day and viewing angle," he says, "and the reaction it provokes in others are the reasons why I do what I do." All the installations in "Understory" are open during regular gallery hours, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and on Sundays starting in November.
