NOAA:More coral protectionSeven corals found in Florida Keys waters could be added to the list of oceanic species federally protected under the Endangered Species Act. The decision announced Friday by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration will bring federal officials to the Keys for public comment hearings Jan. 15 and 16. "We've watched the changes on our reef over the years and the loss of coral has been significant," said Judy Halas of Key Largo, who has been diving Keys reefs for more than four decades as an author and activist. NOAAproposes to list seven Caribbean and Florida coral species as endangered and two more as threatened. Staghorn coral and elkhorn coral, currently the only local corals listed as threatened, would be moved to endangered status under the plan. Added to the list as endangered would be pillar coral, boulder star coral, mountain star coral and star coral. Lamarck's sheet coral and elliptical star coral are being considered for listing as threatened. "All of the corals mentioned for the Caribbean are found in the Keys," said Karrie Carnes, spokeswoman for the Florida Keys National Marine sanctuary. NOAAalso proposes to list seven Pacific Ocean coral species as endangered and 52 Pacific corals as threatened.

It happened Nov. 24 at Big Lagoon County Park in Humboldt County, Calif. It's in Northern California. "This whole area is in shock and in tears," he said. "Everywhere you go, they're talking about it." Scott's sister Mary Elena Scott, 54, brother-in-law Howard Kuljian, 57, and their teenage son Geddie (Scott's nephew) were overcome by what Scott said Humboldt County locals call "sneaker waves" as they tried to rescue the family dog from rough and frigid surf along the Pacific coast. Kuljian apparently threw a stick close to the water's edge, and a wave crashed down on the dog and swept it out to sea. "These waves come out of nowhere almost," Scott said. "The dog went to get the stick and the wave took him." Scott said he was told that Geddie, a 16-year-old highschool junior, went to save the dog and was having trouble with the surf. Kuljian went in the water to help, and Geddie made it back to shore and saw his father wasn't there. He and Mary apparently went back in the water to help Kuljian and the dog, but died doing so. "She was really a takeaction kind of woman. She told [her daughter] Olivia, Don't come in here,'and she never made it back out," Scott said. The dog eventually made it back to shore. The deaths have made headlines internationally for more than a week, as the surviving daughter and sister, Olivia Kuljian, attempts to pick up the pieces. The 18year-old was living in her parents'Eureka, Calif., home and attending college as a freshman at College of the Redwoods. Scott told the Keynoter Olivia is still coming to grips with the deaths, but has "been very strong." He said she would live with her best friend's family in Eureka for the time being.

Just days in advance of construction last month, the district learned that a force main it was set to install along State Road 905 in North Key Largo would run through a federally protected coastal barrier area. Under county ordinance, that's not allowed. Now the Wastewater Treatment District and the Monroe County Commission will try to figure it out when the commission meets next week in Marathon. Wastewater Treatment District General Manager Margaret Blank said the federal Coastal Barrier Resources Act, nor the local equivalent of that law, came into play when Key Largo sewer boundaries were finalized.

But Planning Director George Garrett said the application for those units would likely be finalized this week, and only a handful of developers are expected to fill them out. "The people that have expressed any interest, I have a list of them and have talked to them. It's not that somebody else could not apply, but have they expressed any interest in the last nine months? No," he said. There had been a moratorium in place on new hotel rooms since the city incorporated in 1999, but the allocations were given in recognition of Marathon nearly completing its state-mandated citywide sewer system. The City Council had to amend its land-use plan to allow their distribution. The council approved a 4:1 ratio for doling out the 100 units, meaning that a project could receive only one unit for every four in hand.

WKYZ Florida KeysPirateRadioKeyWest.com 96.7 FM 101.7 FM Keys News on the half-hour Daily (M-F) News Director Don Riggs M or nings 7:30 8:30 9:30 A f t er no ons 4:30 5:30 We need leadership'While the first in a series of forums addressing the future of the arts in the Florida Keys largely dwelled on generalities, the Monday session did yield some light at the end of the tunnel for Key West's unfunded Art in Public Places Board. In 2010, the Key West City Commission approved an ordinance requiring 1 percent of new development costing more than $500,000 and 1 percent of redevelopment costing more than $1,000 be set aside for public art. Since then, no money has been raised for that effort. "The bottom dropped out of the market," Commissioner Teri Johnston told nearly 100 people assembled at The Studios of Key West on White Street for the Future Forum on the Arts, hosted by the Community Foundation of the Florida Keys. The forum is intended to be countywide but clearly the focus Monday was on Key West. How other areas of the Keys will play into the process, designed to coalesce arts groups, remains unclear. "But we have a full cadre of developments in the pipeline. There are lots of good things coming for Art in Public Places," she said, pointing to the following pending major developments: City-led transformation of the 33-acre Truman Waterfront into a destination park, expected to have phased-out costs between $45 million and $50 million. The city is poised to build out Glynn Archer Elementary School for use as a new city hall for around $17 million. Early next year, construction should begin on a $4.8 million fire station at 525 Angela St., the former site of city hall. There are pending plans from a private development consortium to build an assisted-care facility, also at the Truman Waterfront, expected to cost between $20 million and $30 million. Crunching the numbers of the conservative side, and assuming all the projects come to fruition, that would mean an $868,000 boost to Art in Public Places for site-specific installations. Johnston also pointed to plans from Pritam Singh to build a 96-room hotel on Caroline Street, and another concept to build a West Marine store, also on Caroline. Although the costs of those projects aren't clear, they would be subject to the public-art setaside. Michael Shields, chairman of Art in Public Places, noted that private developers could opt out of the on-site installation and just contribute the money to the board. Citing figures produced by the Florida Keys Council for the Arts, Shields pegged the nonprofit economic impact of arts and culture countywide at $87 million per year, an astonishing figure, he said, given the impact in much more populated Broward County at $154 million. "We have a lot of creativity. What we need, of course, is leadership, economic investment and commitment. Imagine a future Key West without the arts. It's a frightening thought."Foundation leads talk on future of artsKEYS ARTSCounty tries to get ahead of BPThe Deepwater Horizon oil spill of 2010 returns to the minds of Monroe County commissioners at two meetings next week. Aspecial meeting of the County Commission meeting has been called for 2 p.m. Dec. 11 at the Marathon Government Center to discuss possible financial payments to the county from negotiated penalty settlements with BP. The federal RESTORE Act standing for the Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunity and Revived Economies Act for the Gulf states directs a significant share of fines from the BPspill to affected areas along the Gulf of Mexico coastline. Monroe County is one of 23 Florida counties designated as eligible for a portion of that money. "That could be anywhere from a little to a lot," said County Commissioner David Rice, a county representative to the Gulf Consortium with Commission Mayor George Neugent. Estimates for Monroe County range from $4 million to $20 million, depending on the final size of the settlement. Money would be dedicated to projects that improve tourism to affected areas or environmental restoration. "We want to bring to the public's attention what we've learned in this evolutionary process as it unfolds," Neugent said. "We'll talk about what kind of proposals can be brought forward, how much money we're potentially looking at, and who the contacts will be," Neugent said. "We don't want anybody jumping up at the last minute and crying foul." On Dec. 11, county commissioners are expected to discuss creation of a local committee of nine to 11 people to oversee proposals for RESTORE Act funding. "These people should represent a broad swath of interests, everything from business and tourism to commercial fishing and reef restoration," Rice said. "They would be the ones to decide how to put the money to the best use for people, as defined by the statute," he said. "If and when it does happen, we want Monroe County to be ready to move rapidly," he said. The County Commission meets in regular session at 9 a.m. Dec. 12 at the Marathon Government Center. Peggy Mathews, a consultant hired to work on BP issues for Monroe, is scheduled to address the commissioners on Dec. 11 and again at 10 a.m. Dec. 12. RESTORE Act funds are separate from privateparty settlements with BP.

Erick Diaz, 19, was trapped underwater and died near Tennessee Reef shortly before noon Sunday, according to a Monroe County Sheriff's Office report. Diaz was snorkeling to spearfish off an 18-foot Boston Whaler owned by his father, relatives told Sheriff's Office deputies. "His cousin told detectives that Diaz had a line attached to his spear, and the line was also tied around his waist," said agency spokeswoman Becky Herrin. "While trying to shoot a fish, he reportedly shot the spear into some rocks and it got stuck." Diaz's cousin said he swam down and tried to pull the spear loose but it remained embedded. The cousin surfaced to get help but Diaz died before he could be freed. Sheriff's Office divers recovered the body, which was turned over to the Monroe County Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy. Diaz apparently is the seventh person to die as a result of a scuba or snorkel accident in Keys waters in 2012.Spearfishing Miami man dies off KeysON THE WATERBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKeynoter Staffwas very unexpected," she said. Between 40 and 72 homes in a three-street 905 subdivision are now in jeopardy of not being able to connect to the district's state-mandated central sewer system. The tie-in to No Name Key is that Monroe has been using a 2001 county ordinance, which adopted a coastal barrier overlay district, as its basis for denying permits for 43 homes to connect to 61 Keys Energy Services power poles on the Lower Keys island. Currently, those homes are powered by solar and generators, and the denial has sparked lawsuits that are pending. "They are, I'm sure, concerned about consistency," Blank said. Congress created the Coastal Barrier Resource System in 1982, and updated it in 1990, to protect undeveloped coastal barrier areas. The county 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." County Growth Management Director Christine Hurley has put the issue up for discussion on the Dec. 12 County Commission meeting agenda so that board can give direction. According to the agenda background, state law exempts the district from permitting requirements to install the force main. "However, as a result of ... adopted comprehensive plan policies and land development regulations, the county cannot issue building permits (plumbing and electrical) to individual property owners in order to connect to the individual lift stations along CR-905." That's much the same as No Name Key, where residents there have been denied county permits to connect their homes to the power poles. Blank said she hopes there's a way the 905 homeowners can connect to the Key Largo sewer plant, saying central sewers are project is more effective in removing contaminants from wastewater than onsite improvements by individual homeowners would be. They're also easier to swallow cost-wise. "Originally, we weren't going to serve this area at all. The big benefit to them is they pay the assessment over 20 years and don't have to come up with this large out-of-pocket cost," Blank said.

Monroe County hearings on the coral endangeredspecies designation take place: 7 to 9 p.m. Jan 15 at the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park visitor center, mile marker 102.6 oceanside in Key Largo. 7 to 9 p.m. Jan. 16 at the Florida Keys EcoDiscovery Center, 35 E. Quay Road at the Truman Waterfront in Key West. The decision to move forward with Endangered Species Act listing was prompted by a court order to act on a 2009 petition filed by the Center for Biological Diversity. "It's a wake-up call telling us our coral reefs are dying and need federal protection," said Miyoko Sakashita, ocean director for the center. Ocean warming and acidification caused by greenhouse gases are "a primary driver of coral bleaching and disease," says a NOAAassessment of coral threats. Listing as an endangered or threatened species generally limits activities that could harm the species. Florida's corals already receive protection under state law and the Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Some additional habitat protections could be enacted. "By making these corals endangered species, we may be able to get more support for research, restoration and other scientific efforts," Halas said. "Corals provide habitat to support fisheries that feed millions of people, and generate jobs and income to local economies through recreation, tourism and fisheries," NOAAadministrator Jane Lubchenco said in a statement.

Now Florida's 31 early learning coalitions have united against a new funding formula they say was crafted without their input and imposed on extremely short notice. In late June, just before the new budget year began, the coalitions were notified of changes in their funding. One of the biggest losers was the Early Learning Coalition of Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties, which lost $3.7 million effective five days later leaving 11,000 children waiting for services. The new formula comes from a December 2011 Auditor General's report, which recommended basing the allocations on the number of eligible children in each community. Some areas, like Broward and Southwest Florida, got more money under the new formula, not less. But the state is planning to phase in five more years'worth of cuts and in Miami-Dade and Monroe counties, that's another $22.3 million lost. Among that is $1.6 million for Monroe County through 2017-18 out of around $16 million. "When you lose so much money in such a short time, you have to plug the hole somehow," said Lauren Faison, executive director of the Early Learning Coalition of the Big Bend. "And it was: Do you cut children? Or do you stop supporting our businesses?'And that's not a debate anyone wants to find themselves in, quality vs. quantity. We need both." The businesses are childcare providers who must meet certain standards to qualify for public funds. The kids are children of the working poor; the idea is to get them ready for school while allowing their parents to hold jobs. The money comes mostly from the federal government. Theoretically, it's a win-win. "The typical school readiness family's average income is $19,000 a year, and they typically have two children," said Brittany Birken, CEO of the Florida Children's Service Council and former director of the state Office of Early Learning. "And without school readiness, it would require 50 percent of their salary to put children in child care so they could work. With school readiness, it ends up being 7 percent of their salary." Shaleen Fagunda, who owns the Interamerican Learning Center in Miami, says the cuts in South Florida threaten the whole network of providers there. "That's the domino," Fagunda said. "When I start losing children, my ratios are going to go up. I'm going to start combining classes.... Eventually, if [the number of children] keeps going down, I'm going to let go of staff, and eventually, I'm going to close my doors."Keys among big losers from stateBy MARGIE MENZELNews Service of FloridaCHILD CAREWeekley looks for finalityKey West City Commissioner Jimmy Weekley, the Old Town District 1 representative, wants to build consensus with the public and his colleagues on the dais before addressing perennial problems in the Southernmost City's congested center. To that point, the City Commission meets tonight to discuss four Old Townspecific issues. The workshop begins at 6 p.m. in Old City Hall on Greene Street. The issues on Weekley's mind are residential parking, street sweeping, noise and the concept of turning Duval Street into a pedestrian-only thoroughfare. "All of these things affect my district and I want to start getting feedback from the commissioners," Weekley said. In recent years, Weekley has been unsuccessful in gaining traction on all four fronts. Each time, the public input and commission discussion periods became protracted, leaving things stagnant. That's what he's trying to avoid by soliciting comment on the front end rather than after ordinances are drafted and put up for vote. Earlier this year, Weekley proposed closing off two blocks of Duval on weekends but that fell by the wayside. Commissioner Tony Yaniz is now pressing city staff to come up with a scheme to close off all of Duval to auto traffic. On the parking side, there are a number of overlapping programs. Anyone with a Monroe County tag can park in a spot marked residential, while folks with residential parking permits can park anywhere on their block. There's also an employee parking program that requires a quarterly renewal by Old Town business owners. Despite all of the regulations, parking is still a major complaint Weekley hears from constituents. "I'm hoping we just end up with a parking ordinance that's workable," Weekley said, frustrated with what's on the books now. The idea with street sweeping is to simply expand the number of routes run by Public Works Department crews and expand the coverage area to include more side streets. On noise control, Weekley said that no one, particularly the businesses it's supposed to govern, understands the machinations of the complaint-driven rule, which requires Code Compliance offers to use decibel meters to monitor sound output.

Wednesday,December 5,2012 5A Keynoter KeysNet.com Duck Key light staying awhileDon't expect traffic backups created by a bridge refurbishing project on Duck Key to go away anytime soon. The county is in the midst of a massive overhaul of the failing bridge, which leads into Duck Key from U.S. 1, that Monroe County Engineering Director Judy Clarke said is expected to last until August. For safety reasons, the state Department of Transportation required Monroe to install a temporary traffic signal on U.S. 1 at mile marker 61 and Duck Key Drive because one lane of the bridge is closed while the other is being repaired. "One lane of the deck is closed because part of the project is replacing the deck and railings, so we obviously close it and repave," she said. This has often meant long backups on northbound U.S. 1 when the light is red as traffic enters and exits Duck Key. Southbound U.S. 1 has a through lane, so the light doesn't affect that traffic unless it's going onto Duck Key. Clarke said there are ample signs along the highway alerting drivers to the light. "They have all the signs out in advance of the light and a lighted message board," she said. The $2 million rehab project is being funded in large part $1.6 million by DOT. The remaining $400,000 is a local match, Clarke said. She said many bridges in Monroe need facelifts, and they're being done "mainly in order of the need based on what's called a sufficiency reading." "It's a number out of 100 calculated when they do the bridge inspections. The lower the number, the more critical it is," she said. A DOTsubcontractor performs inspections on all county-owned bridges. The main aspect of the Duck Key bridge overhaul is replacing the deck and railings, Clark said. Workers have also repaired concrete spalling and pile jackets underneath the bridge. Clarke said the bridge was built in 1967. They're generally designed to last 50 years but "if you do repairs, it extends them."Bridge work leads to some slowdownsTRANSPORTATION At Beautiful Rainbow Bend Resort Mile Marker 58,Grassy Key Reservations 289-1554 Credit Cards Accepted The only thing we overlook is the ocean.Open 7 days a week Dinner 4:30 10pm Breakfast 7:30 10am LAttitudes review Feb. 1, 2002Casual,Gourmet Dining Sunset DinnersNo w only $13.95INCLUDINGCup of Soup,Caesar Salad, Garlic Bread with Entree7 nights a week(except holidays)Must be seated by 5:30 pm Call For Reservations Rack of Lamb Tender...delicious...

Prior to that, Key Westbased Spottswood Co. was granted the right to add 25 units to its long-awaited 100room property, a Hyatt hotel at Faro Blanco, so it needs 25 of the new units. Tranquility Bay owner Pritam Singh had 16 one-bedroom units approved for his 87unit property, so he needs 16. Asmaller place, the Bonefish Bay Motel, had its development agreement and conditional use approved at the Nov. 27 council meeting. It would increase from 20 to 25 transient units, which is equal to the city's 4:1 rule. At the same meeting, Marvin Rappaport, owner of the former Crystal Cove Resort, has plans for a 113room Marriott Residence Inn on his 7.3-acre lot near mile marker 50. Approval is conditional on the state Department of Economic Opportunity agreeing to amend his zoning from residential medium to mixed-use commercial. But Rappaport, along with Coconut Cay owner Jim Rhyne, will not be eligible for the first round of rooms. Rhyne's development agreement was amended from 22 to 42 oneand two-bedroom units in September. Garrett said Rappaport must wait until the state finalizes his zoning change, while Rhyne has a development agreement with no conditional use. Garrett said he expects the City Council to make a decision on the first allotment in January.New rooms closerFrom Hotel rooms,1ABy RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com KEYSNET.COM

Following the 5:30 p.m. meeting at Old City Hall on Greene Street, the recommendations will go to the Key West City Commission for final consideration. Every year since 2009, the City Commission-appointed panel has ranked applications for tax increment funding. The money comes from a special property tax raised in Bahama Village and reinvested in community and capital projects. In 1996, a large chunk of Bahama Village and non-contiguously the Caroline Street Corridor were established as community redevelopment areas. Any growth in property tax revenue above the 1996 level is diverted into the TIF. There are seven applications for funding totaling $1,155,300; there's about $850,000 available. The proposed projects, three of which come from city staff, are: $27,000 for a Bahama Village community garden, submitted by city staff. $550,000 to formulate a Bahama Village "connectivity" plan focusing on streetscapes and signs meant to couple the village with adjacent Duval Street and the Truman Waterfront, also from city staff. $190,000 of a projected $1.54 million total to rehabilitate the Frederick Douglass Community Center, 111 Olivia St., also brought by city staff. $75,000 for residential rehabilitation projects suggested by Habitat for Humanity of Key West and the Lower Florida Keys. $79,500 for interior improvements, plumbing and Americans with Disabilities Act compliance at the Coral City Elks Lodge, 1107 Whitehead St. $175,000 for Phase 2 restoration of the Cornish Memorial AME Zion Church, 702 Whitehead St. In the 2009 TIF cycle, Cornish received $417,000 for a new roof, among other things. $58,800 for landscaping and other barriers around the Geraldine Street electric substation, requested by resident Nancy Moulton. Projects previously funded include renovations to the Bethel AME Zion Church, the Masonic Lodge and an ongoing rehabilitation of Nelson English Park on Catherine Street. In the last TIF cycle, $170,000 was allocated to the Bahama Village park and used to develop a master plan and install new signs and playground equipment.Committee meets Thursday to recommendKEY WESTLopez: $1M for Douglass siteArecent survey of Bahama Village residents conducted by the Monroe County Health Department pegged a lack of activities for children as the Old Town Key West neighborhood's primary community issue. Alison Morales, a Florida International Uni-versity doctoral student and Health Department intern, said a major step toward solving the problem would be rehabilitating the Frederick Douglass Community Center at 111 Olivia St. Key West City Commissioner Clayton Lopez, whose District 6 includes Bahama Village, agrees and wants his colleagues to allocate $1 million toward that end. Lopez's office at the Douglass building was redtagged by the city Building Department on Oct. 11 and labeled unfit for occupancy. The building problems are starting to take a toll on the free after-school program held there for neighborhood youngsters. "The kids who go to the Douglass gym after school," Morales said, "they have to go outside and around the building to access the bathrooms. We don't have any supervisors or staff to accompany them." Lopez's suggestion is to fund the first $1 million of the projected $1.54 million Douglass restoration with part of the proceeds from the city's sale of a piece of prime real estate. In October, the commission agreed to sell the land beneath the Pier House's Caribbean Spa to the hotel's parent company for $7.5 million; the property was formerly leased for a below-market $3,600 annually. Lopez said the remainder of the money can come from the Bahama Village's Tax Increment Fund, which raises around $850,000 each year that's reinvested in capital projects in the neighborhood following a review and approval process. Lopez said the Douglass Community Center is "an essential and significant part of the Bahama Village community." Morales received 342 survey responses. The majority of responses were given in face-to-face interviews and the questionnaire was also available online and via paper copies around the neighborhood. Behind a lack of activities for children, the highest priorities identified by survey takers are lack of parking, drug trafficking, trash/littering, police harassment, lack of jobs and property upkeep.

EDITORIALTransparency always goodLETTERS TO THE EDITOREnsure accountabilityThe shopping-center proposal for Rockland Key has been revised to include community needs and now uses the county's Community Center Zoning Overlay zoning. At a Monroe County Planning Commission meeting, the developer surprised community leaders when he balked at funding unspecified community needs, proposing instead to set aside some land. While agreeing to additional floor space, Growth Management Division staff held firm on the funding for community facilities, but planning commissioners approved the resolution without insisting the developer build those facilities. Absent strong will and leadership from Monroe County, this developer's offer of a land set-aside would likely become little more than an open area between buildings with at best a few benches to wait for a bus. Prioritization of community needs and specifications for general-purpose community facilities is not a difficult process and should neither be a show stopper nor an excuse for de-funding. The Monroe County comprehensive plan and Livable CommuniKeys plans encourage development and growth of commercial projects to migrate into community centers that maintain the community character, include a vision developed by the local community, and provide an activity center for the community. As it stands, this resolution fails to capture those needs. Lower Keys residents and county staff worked very hard on our Livable CommuniKeys plan. Going shopping at the mall is not the activity most Lower Keys residents envisioned for our community activity centers. I hope our County Commission will insist that "community center" developments envisioned by the Livable CommuniKeys plans must include the fully funded provision of, and unencumbered use of, a reasonable set of facilities that meet the needs of the impacted community. Bill Hunter Sugarloaf KeyState makes an effort to post countless records online but the results need to be betterSunshine is the best disinfectant, and nothing could use more light than Florida's shady state budget. That's why the Legislature should move forward with creating a website that provides more transparency on public spending. Unfortunately, it appears to be caught in a web of politics -and the clock is ticking on freeing it. As reported by Mary Ellen Klas of the Tampa Bay Times/Miami Herald Tallahassee bureau, in 2010 the state began developing a software program called Transparency 2.0 that allows users to instantly access various government databases to see how tax dollars are spent, who requested the money and who ultimately benefits. The features include tracking how much money lobbyists' clients receive from state business, what expenditures were inserted into the budget at the last minute and the status of every sole-source contract. It even shows how much the state and its contractors spend on travel and office supplies and which companies received favorable terms with one agency and less favorable terms with another. Alot of that information already is available, but only if one knows what he or she is looking for and goes searching for it via public records requests. That could take weeks or months. Transparency 2.0 would make it available at the click of a computer mouse and allow users to browse databases. That sounds like an exciting and useful tool, not just for legislators and the media but for any private citizen who wants to keep tabs on his government. Although the program could be a white knight for good government, its origins are a little darker.... Transparency 2.0 now appears to be in limbo. Neither Gov. Rick Scott nor the new House and Senate leaders are embracing it. Senate President Don Gaetz told Klas "it sounds like an orphan nobody wants." Last year, Gaetz was given a demonstration of a beta version of the program, which Gaetz said was "underwhelming." However, the Tampa Bay Times recently requested and received a demonstration of the software, and its editors were impressed. Unfortunately, the contract with Spider Data Systems expires Dec. 31. If it's not renewed, Transparency 2.0 could disappear, despite the fact that the state already has spent $4.5 million to develop it and the program shows potential.... State officials this month need to decide whether to proceed with Transparency 2.0 or to commit to a similar system. They shouldn't just let the issue fall through the cracks.... The News Herald, Panama CityVolunteers essential to preserving FloridaThe holidays are a time of giving and generosity, and International Volunteer Day, which is today, is the day we recognize those who give every day, no matter the season. International Volunteer Day as designated by the United Nations offers an opportunity for volunteer organizations and individual volunteers to be recognized and have their contributions acknowledged at the local, national and international level. In Florida, our environment requires constant attention. With ecosystems as diverse as the Everglades, sinkholes and dune lakes, the state Department of Environmental Protection relies on volunteers to contribute their time and effort to protect the environment and the species within it. Volunteers also play a vital role in spreading the word about what we as individuals can do to keep our lands, our waters, our beaches and our critters healthy. Environmental stewardship centers on knowledge of the environment, the creatures within that environment, and the resources that both need protection and are available to aid in protection. Florida's volunteers provide that, as well. The department's volunteers don't just talk about protecting our resources they lead by example. Through cleanups, data collection, restoration projects, educating the public and more, Florida's volunteers play roles as diverse as our environment. Here's what volunteers with the department contributed to state parks and trails, aquatic preserves, estuarine research reserves, the coral reef program and environmental education in the past year: 7,245 volunteers contributed 1,299,946 hours in Florida's state parks and trails. In the state's three national estuarine research reserves, 1,176 volunteers served a total of 53,045 hours. 431 volunteers contributed 12,753 hours in Florida's five aquatic preserves. The Coral Reef Conservation Program and the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary hosted 1,155 volunteers for a total of 15,668 hours. How volunteers contribute: Education. Regularly scheduled education programs at Florida's three national estuarine research reserves are taught by volunteers. Volunteers teach visitors about the habitat, historical and cultural significance of an area, as well as organize star parties, interpretive tours and hikes. The department's Office of Environmental Education also uses volunteers as part of the Learning in Florida's Environment program. Those volunteers have the opportunity to teach middle school students about science, math, engineering and technology in real-world settings such as state parks. Interpretation. Volunteers at the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve lead visitors on guided tours of the area, providing information about the reserve, the ecosystem and the wildlife that live there. Such positions are also available at many Florida state parks. Wildlife surveys. Volunteers have the opportunity to help staff at many coastal state parks and aquatic preserves monitor the nests of sea turtles and shorebirds. These surveys are vital to state and nationwide conservation efforts. Cleanup and maintenance. Volunteers scour Florida's beaches, lakesides and riverbanks during the annual International Coastal Cleanup, and on their weekends as well, in an effort to reduce the amount of trash that accumulates there. Volunteers also help maintain butterfly gardens, nature trails and historic buildings and gardens. Data collection. With more than 11,000 miles of rivers, streams and waterways and nearly 1,200 miles of coastline, monitoring Florida's water-quality requires an enormous amount of resources. Volunteers are vital to the department's efforts in this area. For example, volunteers at Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve collect freshwater marsh hydrologic well data as part of a restoration project and volunteers at six aquatic preserves in Charlotte Harbor sample water quality monthly at 46 sites. Land management. Volunteers help maintain the natural beauty of state conservation lands by assisting staff with tasks such as invasive/exotic plant removal, habitat restoration and controlled burns. Recently, volunteers led the effort to remove invasive hydrilla from the federally designated Wild and Scenic Wekiva River. Visitor services. Volunteers staff the welcome desk at most Florida state park visitor centers and help organize large events such as the Florida Folk Festival at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park. Volunteers also serve as trail guides, docents and campground hosts. Whether they're picking up trash or rescuing baby sea turtles, volunteers are essential to a healthy Florida environment. The additional resources provided by volunteers, combined with our field staff, scientists and engineers, ensure that future generations enjoy and protect our ecosystems.

Manuel Ravelo Jr., 40, also forfeited his boat and lobster-diving licenses, and will be placed on probation after his release. Ravelo previously pleaded guilty on a federal charge of illegally taking lobster from artificial habitats found within the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. "Ravelo engaged in the illegal harvest of spiny lobster over a multi-year period, extending from as early as August 2007 through approximately March 2009," according to a statement from Wilfredo Ferrer, U.S. attorney for South Florida. "Court records reflect that Ravelo's involvement in the scheme was valued at approximately $390,000 in retail value." According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, Ravelo regularly visited illegal underwater structures known as casitas and often exceeded the daily commercial bag limit of 250 lobster. He falsely attributed portions of his catch to other fishermen. As part of his plea agreement, Ravelo worked with federal officers and used his own boat and money to remove more than 200 illegal habitats from sanctuary waters. The investigation involved several state and federal fisheries agencies. In 2005, Ravelo was named to a state lobster advisory panel helping the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission on an overhaul of state lobstering rules. He later was booted as the panel's commercialdiving representative for missing too many meetings. Ravelo was arrested on a state misdemeanor count in late 2007 for possessing artificial-reef materials on the water. FWC officers said they found a large number of steel rods and a sledgehammer aboard Ravelo's boat during an inspection. He reportedly refused to divulge the purpose of the building materials. After numerous motions and hearings in the materials case, Ravelo pleaded guilty in February 2011. U.S. District Judge Jose Martinez imposed the sentence in Key West federal court.Ravelo also gave up boat and licensesIN THE COURTSif she was their own. Their son has been her best friend forever," he said. "The family is phenomenal." Scott said the family was beloved in the community, always willing to lend a hand. He said he had no idea before the tragedy how involved his sister was in Eureka. "Whether you knew them or not, they were so immersed in the community," he said. "Everyone just loved them. Anything that was going on, they were there. She was my sister and I didn't even know half of the things she was involved in; she just went about it quietly." Scott said the family loved animals and kept a wide variety of them on their "several acres" of land. That includes a "ton of chickens," whose eggs the Kuljians sold to give the money to charity, he said. The family also had a pair of Tibetan yaks that the local zoo is attempting to adopt, Scott said. "They made an offer that if they want to donate them, they'll put a plaque memorializing the family," he said. Meanwhile, friends of Geddie have established a memorial "Wear Green For Geddie" page on Facebook to show their support. His girlfriend apparently witnessed the incident along with Olivia. Scott's friends have also been reaching out to him, flooding his Facebook page with thoughts and prayers. He told said he used to put little stock in such sentiments, but reconsidered in the wake of his sister's, brother-in-law's and nephew's deaths. "When it was turned around on me and when I saw the outpouring, what a comfort that was. I know how important now it is to do that," he said. Scott has been with the family in California since Friday and was slated to arrive back in the Keys Tuesday evening.Family loved'From Scott,1AKeynoter Staff www.keysnet.com www.keysnet.com www.keysnet.com

Call Laura at 743-5551 Report warns of toy dangersADora the Explorer guitar, dragster cars with small wheels and finger-fidget desktop magnets are among the toys that consumer advocates are warning about as the holiday buying season is in full swing. In its annual "Trouble in Toyland" report, the U.S. Public Interest Research Group examined more than 200 toys on store shelves at major retailers and dollar stores and found about a dozen that could be dangerous to children. The Dora guitar is too loud, the group said, and tested slightly above the limit that hearing experts recommend. The dragster car has small rubber traction bands on the wheels that could be a choking hazard, and a too-tiny warning label. Compared to previous years, lead and other toxins were less a concern, thanks to a 2008 product safety law that ushered in stricter limits on metals and chemicals in toys. Instead, much of the focus was on small magnet toys and jewelry. PIRG cited government estimates of 1,700 emergency room visits between 2009 and 2011 involving the ingestion of high-powered magnets. Most of the cases involved children between 4 and 12 years old. Older children have accidentally ingested the balls while trying to mimic tongue piercings. The magnets, such as the ones in the popular Buckyball desktop toys, can cling together if swallowed, pinch internal tissue and lead to serious injuries. This summer, the Consumer Product Safety Commission sued New York-based Maxfield and Oberton, the maker of the Buckyball desktop toys, to stop their sale. The finger-play toys are designed for adults, but CPSC said it was seeing too many injuries involving children. Maxfield has maintained the toys are for adults, marketed to adults and carry clear warning labels but it announced last month that it would stop making the Buckyball series. CPSC is considering a ban on similar magnet sets. PIRG found one toy that violated the new stricter lead limits. It found no toys or jewelry that exceeded the voluntary industry limits for cadmium. Both metals can delay brain development in children, leading to learning disabilities. PIRG also did not find phthalates chemicals that are used to make plastic products softer but can cause health problems above the federal standard in the toys it tested.Lead, toxins down the list of concernsBy JENNIFER C.KERRAssociated PressCONSUMERS Business AP photo by J.SCOTT APPLEWHITEThe U.S.Public Interest Research Group has released its 27th annual Trouble in Toyland'report on hazardous toys.Shown are small toys that pose a choking hazard, loud toys that threaten children's hearing,and toy magnets that can cause serious internal injury.Deadline approaches to file claimsFlorida borrowers who lost their homes to foreclosure between Jan. 1, 2008, and Dec. 31, 2011, who might be eligible for payment under a $25 billion national mortgage foreclosure settlement must file their claim by Jan. 18. Eligible borrowers had mortgages serviced by Ally/GMAC, Bank of America, Citi, JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo, the nation's five largest mortgage servicers. All agreed to the settlement with the federal government and attorneys general for 49 states and the District of Columbia. The settlement, which took effect in April, earmarks about $1.5 billion in payments for 2 million borrowers nationwide who lost their homes to foreclosure during that period and had their loan serviced by one of the settling servicers. If you used any of the five and were foreclosed, you should have already received a claims form. They can be filed at www.nationalmort gagesettlement.com. Payment checks are expected to be mailed in mid-2013. Borrowers who believe they may have missed their claim form because they recently moved can contact the settlement administration at (866) 430-8358. The information line is staffed business hours on weekdays. Eligible borrowers do not need to prove financial harm to receive a payment, nor do they give up rights to pursue alawsuit against their mortgage servicer or to participate in the Independent Foreclosure Review Process, which is being conducted by federal bank regulators.Foreclosed borrowers may be eligibleCONSUMERS Graphic by DALLAS MORNING NEWSBUSINESS BRIEFSKnowles promoted to finance chiefLisa Knowles has been promoted to executive director of the Finance Division in the Monroe County Sheriff's Office, replacing Amy Heavilin.

"Until the last few years, most tax reform usually occurred enough in advance to have a better chance to plan for the future," said Sevier, managing partner of accounting firm Peterson, Peterson & Goss. "These last few years have been unusual?... but I think this year certainly has the largest number of items for which we are uncertain. This has probably created as much uncertainty as what I've seen." The "this" to which Sevier referred is a series of tax cuts set to expire this year, combined with cuts in a number of programs funded through the federal government. Known as the "fiscal cliff" the package of impending tax increases includes higher federal income tax rates and increasing rates on capital gains and dividends. It also includes the expiration of a number of tax-reduction provisions for businesses and the end of measures that lowered taxes on many gifts and estates. Tax accounting chiefs said the general expectation is that last-minute action by Congress and President Obama will stave off the effects of the fiscal cliff. "But really nobody knows," said Steve Houlik, executive vice president at Allen, Gibbs & Houlik. Lori Davis, Wichita office managing partner for Grant Thornton, said they are calling the coming tax event, "taxmageddon" at her office. Davis and her peers said the uncertainty of what will happen with various credits and tax rates is making it difficult to plan intelligently on the tax front. "It's hard and it's frustrating, but we are running kind of different models and doing different projections," Davis said. "We have no idea for sure whether [Congress and the president] are going to do anything before the end of the year." In some cases, tax accountants such as Davis are presenting different planning strategies for clients. Others are basing their planning largely on the assumption that the exemptions will be allowed to expire and the higher rates will take effect. "I think the big word here is uncertainty and you'd better take advantage" of the exemptions and credits that are in place now, Sevier said. Houlik of AGH said fiscal cliff issues make some of the guidelines that are generally followed all but useless.

Sagan; at 251 was Doral Academy's Lance Ballester. Both are football players. Ballester almost had a pin, but then Sagan turned the tables as his teammates clapped and chanted, "Pin! Pin! Pin!" and coaches Chaz Jimenez and Brian Flanigan screamed, "Tripod! Tripod!" and "On your knees!" words Sagan could barely decipher through his ear protectors. When Sagan finally pinned Ballester's shoulders to the mats, the gym erupted. While Sagan, his own thick shoulders glistening with sweat, basked in the ensuing adulation, he was asked the difference between wrestling and football. "Wrestling is so much harder," he said. Sagan's victory he was 2-2 for the day was one of many for the Conchs, who went 5-0 in the annual Key West Duals, also defeating American Heritage Delray Beach, Boca Raton, Archbishop Curley and Coral Shores. Coral Shores went 1-3-1, defeating Curley and tying Doral. It was an impressive debut for the Conchs'Chase Kelley, the friendly 180pound transfer from suburban Detroit, who went 4-0. Kelley, who lives on Big Pine, displayed a personality as impressive as his talent.Of his teammates, he said, "I love em the coolest guys ever.

"We really pounded the ball inside to Ismer," Teachey said. St. Brendan "had no one to match up with his size." When not getting to the hoop, Ismer delivered on 8of-14 free throws."It was tight game throughout," Teachey said. "No team led by more than two possessions the entire game."In a contest where every bucket was needed, forward Alberto Anderson hit for seven points, and Richard Jacobson connected on two 3-pointers for his six points.

In the first game, Caila DeAbreu, Libby Isherwood and Lauren Schoneck scored goals for the Conchs, and the fourth went in off a Barron Collier player. "We rose to the occasion" the Conchs trailed, 2-0, early and were down, 2-1, at the half "and played some nice soccer," said coach Scott Paul. "It was a very physical, aggressive game, but we kept our heads about us." Keeper Angela Martin returned to the nets after missing two games because of a concussion. On Saturday, the Conchs played without DeAbreu, who had a swollen ankle from the night before. Isherwood knocked in a penalty kick early in the game and then Schoneck took over. "She was phenomenal charging in on the back side," Paul said of Schoneck, who scored on corner kicks from Isherwood and Adriana Garcia. One was a spectacular header.Key West improved to 5-6 and will try to go over .500 this weekend with District 163Agames against Stranahan (at 4 Friday) and Dillard (at 2 Saturday) at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium."We've solved our defensive problems, we're putting pressure on the offensive end and the goals have started coming," Paul said.Squad hosting Stranahan, then DillardBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST SOCCER Dolphins split twoThe Marathon High School boys soccer team split a pair of home matches Friday and Monday against Coral Springs Charter and Archimedean Charter schools.The Dolphins defeated Coral Springs, 2-0, on Friday before falling to Archimedean, 3-2, in a match that could conservatively be described as physical.On Friday, the Dolphins and Coral Springs were tied at the half before coach Jim Murphy switched some positions around during break to get the offense rolling. "We were able to find the back of the net 4:30 into the send half," he said. Dylan Neary made a nice run from the center of the field, took a pass from Riley Durkin and beat the goalie to the far post to give Marathon a 1-0 lead.At the 23:00 mark, Neary had the ball around the right corner and centered it to Frankie Gonzalez just outside the 18-yard box. Gonzalez took a one-touch right-footed shot that beat the goalie in the upper left corner."Our team came out in the second half and finished the ball. We have been having problems with scoring all season and have been constantly switching players positions and formations to find the right formula for our team," Murphy said.Goalie Raymond Crespo got his first shutout of the season, stepping out of the net to stop possible breakaways."On the defensive side, we have found four to five solid defenders which allowsYellow cards accumulate in 2nd gameBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON SOCCERSee Dolphins,2BSailfish are tightening lines offshoreSailfishing is very good these days, evidenced by the 157 releases from 25 boats during the 49th annual Islamorada Sailfish Tournament. The first leg of the Florida Keys Gold Cup Sailfish Championship, this three-day event attracts premier sailfish anglers from the Keys and beyond. Live baiting is the way to go on the deeper edge of the reef. But if you find ballyhoo on the reef edge, you'll find sailfish spraying them. Mixed in with the sails are increasing numbers of kingfish plus blackfin tuna and dolphin. Reef fishing is consistent in the 50to 70-foot depth ranges, with yellowtail snapper providing lots of action. Plus, the occasional mutton snapper is showing up in the yellowtail slicks. Fishing shallower on the patch reefs produces plenty of all the snapper and mackerel species along with red and gag grouper. On the deeper edge of the reef, black grouper are making their presence known. In and around Hawk Channel, there is a huge variety of fish for the taking all the groupers and snappers, cero and Spanish mackerel, hogfish, Florida pompano, yellowjacks and the list goes on and on. The coral heads in this area are your target venues, with shrimp and small pilchards or pinfish the baits of choice. This action is tremendous for families as the rods are bent nearly the entire trip.If you're new to our fishing waters, I encourage you to get a fish identification and catch regulations chart; it can get quite confusing with several species of fish appearing very similar. For example, lane snapper and mutton snapper look a lot alike but the size limits are vastly different. Lanes need only be 8 inches, while a keeper mutton must be 16 inches. Should the winds prevent you from venturing out to the reef, try fishing the local bridges and bay areas.

Ricky Ceja, who has been leading our defense, to get back into his normal position in the center of the field. With Ricky back at center midfield, our time of possession and offensive opportunities greatly increase, Murphy said. On Monday, the Dolphins fell behind 2-0 at the half, and surrendered another goal just moments into the second half to go down 3-0. But Durkin answered back within 30 seconds, fielding a through ball and beating the goalie to the low left post on a breakaway. From there the game got chippy, as the two sides accumulated a number of yellow cards for physical play. Both sides were visibly upset with a referee crew that appeared to miss several offside and other calls. Ceja made it 3-2 around the 34:00 mark of the second half, on a beautiful right-footed shot from the left side of the field around 35 yards out. The ball curved away from the goalie and into the right corner of the net. The Dolphins had several more scoring chances in the final minutes, but were unable to capitalize.

Their defense was really good. They sped us up and we got impatient and tried to do too much with passes and started taking some bad shots, Freeman said. Marathon (0-3) played much better the rest of the way, but couldnt do enough to close the gap. The Dolphins trailed 29-11 at halftime and were outscored 28-21 in the second half. At the half, I didnt think we were out of it. We played better in the third in the fourth, but still turned the ball over a lot. They outscored us by seven in the second half, Freeman said.

Veterans Nick Hortensi and Steven Chadwick were joined by rookie fullback Jonathan Mitjans on the defensive end of the field. Keys Gate got just three shots on goal, with Cane goalies Sal Barrios and Graham Miller preserving the shutout. A.J. Paterson put the Hurricanes in front with a left-footed score off a cross.

Watching nearby, leaning on the rail of the thinly populated (mostly with parents) Tommy Roberts Stadium bleachers was Bobby Saunders, the players father and a notable mentor of soccer goalkeepers. He was very determined, he said of his sons first goal this season. Tenacity will win games.The goal came just before the end of the first half, and set up a back-and-forth second half that had Conch coach Rob Eggers (Its sheer luck that were winning) pleading to his players to race back on defense. Eggershair was disheveled in the breeze and, into his dress slacks, was tucked a red-and-white Conch shirt on which was stitched Coach Eggers.Theyre moving and were not, he said at one point, causing tank-topped Orion Jones, who did not play because of an injured hip, to remind him, Eggers, were winning. Eggers, who is in his early 50s and in his second season as coach, proved adept at multi-tasking.He talked on his cell phone. He barked instructions (Stick with 46 ... Robert, take him). And, turning toward his subs, seamlessly segued into, Hey, guys, fill up the water bottles.In goal for the Conchs was junior Gavin Mock, settling into his unexpected role as keeper. When he jumped high to the crossbar to make a save, the fans rewarded him with polite applause, as they did every time he caught the ball.Late in the game, the tenacity of Roberto Remercy and Alex Cabrera helped Key West keep the visitors at bay, and, shortly after Saunders mis-kicked what would have been his second goal, the game ended. Not too many played well today, said Eggers, whose team improved to 2-41 and will host Stranahan at 6 p.m. Friday and Dillard at 4 Saturday. After the teams shook hands, Griffin Saunders, who is 17 with a hint of a beard, explained his moment in the sun: It was a 50-50 ball to start with. On a play like that, youve really got to want it.

Shooting guard Jessica Forest left early in the first quarter with a knee injury, and coach Leslie Lindsey said the team struggled in her absence. The Patriots defeated the Dolphins, 50-33. It didnt turn out the way we hoped. It hurt to have Jessica out with an injury early in the game. Shes been our MVPfor the last two years, Lindsey said. Weve got some other players that step into her spot when shes out, but theyre not as experienced yet. Point guard JohnNisha Qualls led the Dolphins (1-3) with 14 points, while Gardine Raymond added nine. Amanda Davis and Yailin Nieda each had five. But it wasnt enough to stick with the Patriots, whose point guard, Nicole Jimenez, gave the Dolphins fits defensively en route to a 21-point effort. Marathon trailed 25-12 at the half, and made a few baskets early in the third to put a dent in the Florida Christian lead. But Jimenez scored 12 points in the third alone, and the Patriots went on a run and led 44-24 after the third. It wasnt really enough. They move the ball really well and we werent effective defensively against their point guard, Lindsey said.

IronicallyThese are a few of Chicky Winkleman's favorite Hanukkah things: Ironic, ugly sweaters adorned with stars of David, his roommate's Christmas tree and making latkes, alone in the afternoon. The vegetarian living in Burlington, Vt., knows of what he speaks when it comes to marking the eight-day holiday hipster-style. He's cofounder with older brother Duckie of www.hipster jew.com which ran a makeyour-own menorah contest last year and enjoys about 50,000 page views a month, presumably among likeminded young Jews. Hanukkah, an eight-day holiday that starts Saturday, marks the rededication of the Temple of Jerusalem after its defilement by Antiochus of Syria. It's also called the Festival of Lights. The problem with hipster Hanukkah, said Winkleman, whose given name is Charles, is once you identify out loud as a hipster, you've likely lost the descriptor for life. But the preschool teacher who dabbles in standup comedy sees a variety of differences between regular Hanukkah and a hipster's touch. On food: "There are latkes but it's usually never with people. I'm usually alone making latkes one day. It's a little depressing, but it has to be to get the true hipster Jew Hanukkah experience. It's gotta be a little bit lonely." On the emerging tradition of ugly Hanukkah sweaters (see www.Geltfiend.com ): "The sweaters are a way for us to get involved with the whole Christmas celebration but still separate ourselves from it." They come with tars of David and menorahs inside brown circles that look like chocolate gelt. On an idea his brother (real name Ari) is working on: "You know those big saint candles? He's working on a Jewish version with Woody Allen and, I don't know, maybe Barbra Streisand." Fedoras for yarmulkes, Fair Trade olive oil or candles via the wax of locally sourced bees there are lots of ways to pull off a hipster's Hanukkah, even if you're not an active member of the tribe's subset. Or a tribesman of any kind. Sage Saturn, 22, puts the "ish" in Jewish. He's fresh out of college, not a Jew but hangs out with many and works as a graphic designer for www .Moderntribe.com a site loaded with ways to dive into hipster Hanukkah. "I think more people like me are into exploring what they don't know," said Saturn, who dumped his hard-to-spell real names for two way-cool made-up ones. Among his favorite Hanukkah things: Amenorah made of recycled bicycle chain. Saturn's boss, Moderntribe co-founder Jennie Rivlin Roberts, sees a whole lot of hipster in what she sells. There's an insulated wine bottle holder made to look like a paper bag and a two-for-one deal on those boxes of word fridge magnets one with Yiddish poetry and the other for bike lovers (hipsters love their fixies). At 55, Shel Horowitz is more hippie than hipster. The expert on green and ethical marketing hipped up his Hanukkah more than a decade ago, when he moved with his wife and two small kids into a 1743 farmhouse in the western Massachusetts town of Hadley."We have beautiful starry skies," he said. "We light four menorahs, put them in different windows and walk around the outside of the house to look at them while singing Oh Chanukah.'It's just a special thing we do as a family."His kids, now 19 and 24, still make their way home for the annual walk around the house. For Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year, you can find the Horowitzes up a mountain and in a stream near their solarized colonial. Rafi Samuels-Schwartz, managing editor of the 'zine Heeb, "the new Jew review," has a few thoughts on hipster Hanukkah: "Jewish hipsters make their latkes out of organic, locally sourced potatoes from their CSAof choice," he wryly observed. "They can go with standard recipes, or think globally with Mexican, Indian or Korean versions." "While averse to wearing yarmulkes themselves, hipsters make sure their pets are dressed appropriately. That said, those Hanukkah sweaters from Geltfiend are pretty great." "Forget AChristmas Story'or It's a Wonderful Life,'" urged SamuelsSchwartz. "Jewish hipsters watch Hanukkah horror movies," he said, with fans of the genre anxiously anticipating the slasher "Hanukkah."

Being eco-friendly is often the least of a busy family's concerns, but you may be surprised by the benefits that your family can enjoy from greening your holiday season. The state Department of Environmental Protection recommends these ten easy tips that can help make your holidays not only more costefficient and eco-friendly, but fun and stress-free as well. When preparing for holiday guests, trade in harsh household cleaners for cleaners that are safer for family health and the environment. Purchase LED light strands, which require less energy. Instead of buying holiday treats with paper wrappers, try making fun, homemade treats that do not require wrapping or that can be placed in reusable containers. Use cloth napkins and reusable utensils in place of disposable paper and plastic alternatives these may require washing, but they will save you money, conserve water and reduce waste. Make your holiday meal sustainable and boost your local economy by shopping for ingredients at a local farmer's market, co-op or upick farm. Create nutrient-rich compost for your windowsill or backyard garden from your holiday meal leftovers. Buy recycled wrapping paper and holiday cards, and be sure to recycle again after use. Use old newspapers or butcher paper and let the kids draw their own holiday designs for a fun, eco-friendly holiday craft. Or instead of wrapping gifts, set up the toys so that the kids can play with them right away rather than un-wrapping and setting them up. Create holiday decorations such as ornaments with old greeting cards, garlands made from strung popcorn or cranberries, and potpourri made from spices such as cinnamon and cloves. And remember: Don't throw decorations away; store them for use during next year's festivities. For more green tips, visit www.dep.state.fl.us.

Wednesday,December 5,2012 5B Keynoter KeysNet.com Crossword solutionSolution to the Dec.1 puzzle.Light libations can set the holiday moodBack during my days at Gourmet magazine, my many duties included teaching cooking classes. I used to tell my students especially the cookingimpaired ones that if they made sure to greet dinner party guests with a special homemade drink, they would always win, no matter what else happened that evening. Let them buy take-out food, rearrange it artfully on platters, then claim it as their own. Nobody would think twice as long as they were handed a special drink on their way in the door. Festive drinks scream, Party! The holiday season boasts any number of festive libations. My favorite is eggnog. After all, if youre trying to crystallize holiday excess in liquid form, how better than to combine sweet cream with strong rum or brandy But what if just this once you dont want to overdo it? How do you cut down the fat and calories in eggnog without losing the drinks signature richness? More precisely, is there a way to keep it creamy without cream? I tried making eggnog using nonfat milk, both regular and condensed. I even tried thickening the mixture with cornstarch. My daughter Ruthie, a connoisseur of cocktails, rejected both of these strategies. Non-fat milk made the drink too watery. Cornstarch successfully thickened the drink, but in a way that reminded my expert of a loose pudding, not eggnog. Ruthie suggested losing the non-fat milk in favor of 2 percent milk, which is still much lighter than cream. That did the trick. Then I added Chai spices, which contributed their own luxurious and exotic notes that work so nicely with the more traditional nutmeg. My second concoction, Christmas sangria, required much less experimentation, if only because traditional sangria a mix of wine and fruit is a fairly healthy punch to begin with. Essentially, all I did was swap out the drinks usual summertime fruits for their wintertime counterparts pomegranates, clementines and apples, along with some fresh fruit juice. Reformatted in this fashion, it looks and tastes just right for the holidays. Heres how to make your chai eggnog: Two cups 2 percent milk, divided. 3.5-inch stick cinnamon, smashed using the side of a knife. Half a vanilla bean, split lengthwise. 10 whole cloves. Half a teaspoon whole black peppercorns, coarsely crushed. Half a teaspoon ground ginger. Four cardamom pods, crushed (or half a teaspoon ground cardamom). Kosher salt. Two large eggs. Quarter cup sugar. Brandy or rum for flavoring (optional). Grated nutmeg, to garnish In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine 1.5 cups of the milk with the cinnamon, vanilla bean, cloves, peppercorns, ginger, cardamom pods and a hefty pinch of salt. Bring the mixture to a simmer, then turn off the heat and let it stand for 15 minutes. Strain the mixture through a sieve, discarding all of the solids except for the vanilla bean. Scrape the seeds from the vanilla bean into the milk; discard the vanilla pod. Wipe out the saucepan and return the milk to the pan over medium heat. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl beat the eggs with the sugar for two minutes, or until they are light and lemon colored. Add the heated milk in a stream, whisking gently. Return the egg-milk mixture to the saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until it thickens and coats the back of the spoon, about four two six minutes. Do not let the mixture come to a simmer or the eggs will scramble. Quickly add the remaining half cup of milk to the pan to stop the cooking. Transfer the mixture to a pitcher and chill for at least two hours or until very cold. To serve, divide the eggnog among four chilled glasses, stir in a dash of brandy or rum, if desired, and top with a sprinkle of freshly grated nutmeg.
