First State Bank is our local bank helping us to accomplish our goals.Ž Sewer firm cited in scheme'Acompany recommended to receive a $35.7 million contract for Lower Keys sewer construction ran into subcontracting problems on a Broward County project earlier this year. Giannetti Contracting Corp. was accused by the Broward County Inspector General's Office of taking part in what a June report describes as a "scheme" to evade mandates to use locally owned small businesses on a portion of a $6.5 million wastewater project in Dania. That report probably will not hinder today's planned contract award to Giannetti for the Inner Island portion of the Cudjoe Regional wastewater system, said Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority Chief Executive Kirk Zuelch. "All the information we have received does not indicate any reason not to proceed," Zuelch said. The FKAA, meeting at 9:30 a.m. today at the utility's Kennedy Drive offices in Key West, will consider the Giannetti contract along with a $79.8 million contract to Layne Heavy Civil for the Cudjoe Outer Island system, and $21.9 million to Wharton Smith for the Lower Keys treatment plant. Giannetti's low bid for the Cudjoe work was about $4 million to $5 million below county estimates. "Broward County has taken no action at this point against Giannetti, which continues to do work for Broward," Zuelch said. "They've done several projects there and have at least one very large contract still active." Broward County purchasing staff told FKAA Attorney Bob Feldman that Giannetti "has been doing very well" on its work there, Zuelch said. Calls to Giannetti's home office in Sterling Heights, Mich., and to the Broward County Administrator's Office were not been returned as of press time. The primary target of the Broward County Inspector General Office's 15-page report was a subcontractor trucking company that grew too large to qualify as a small business under Broward's set-aside for small businesses, known as the County Business Enterprises program. Stanford and Sons Trucking attempted to get approved small businesses to act as a "pass-through"Giannetti Contracting among firms to get $137.4M in Cudjoe contractsLOWER KEYSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comSee Cudjoe,3A Grinch surprises driversThe Grinch was out in full force in Marathon on Monday, but he wasn't about stealing Christmas. Instead, he was checking traffic speeds through the school zone at Stanley Switlik Elementary School around mile marker 49. Speeders going no more than 5 mph over the 20 mph limit got the option of a ticket or an onion. Obviously, most opt for the onion. Chief Lou Caputo, third in line at the Monroe County Sheriff's Office, played the role of the Grinch, handing out about 10 onions. He's been donning the outfit while operating a radar gun this time of year since 2000.Some speeders get onions over ticketsMARATHON Photo by LARRY BENVENUTIThe Grinch,a.k.a.Chief Lou Caputo,measures vehicle speeds Monday in Marathon. DUI machine is under fireAKeys lawyer who for years has been attacking the validity of software in breathtest machines used in drunkdriving cases is now after the actual machine itself. Hal Schuhmacher says he's awaiting a ruling from Monroe County Judge Wayne Miller against the Monroe County State Attorney's Office for refusing to comply with Miller's order granting inspection of the Intoxilyzer 8000 at the Key West jail. Schuhmacher filed the motion on behalf of 35 clients on Nov. 16. "I've asked for them to dismiss the cases or exclude the breath test," Schuhmacher said. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement contracts with Kentucky-based CMI Inc. to provide the machines. Schuhmacher filed an original "motion to compel" in June, asking Miller to allow inspection of the Intoxilyzer 8000 at the jail (and, perhaps down the road, the ones in Marathon and Plantation Key, as well). He discovered via a Sarasotabased DUI case that its manufacturer has been drilling holes in at least one of the machines to allow for better airflow. "That's where we first discovered they made the modification," Schuhmacher said. "They acknowledged there was a hole put in the machine." On Sept. 7, Miller granted the motion to allow the inspection of the Key West Intoxilyzer and gave the state 30 days to comply, which it has yet to do. The inspection was supposed to happen by Oct. 8. The crux of Schuhmacher's argument is that CMI began drilling holes in the Intoxilyzer 8000 "after it was approved and put on the U.S. Department of Transportation conforming products list." Law enforcement is required by law to record a one-second breath sample with the 8000 model the requirement was six seconds with the 5000 and a mini-Attorney says holes drilled affect resultsIN THE COURTSTRUCK'S DITCHED Photo by SHERIFF'S OFFICE SGT.DENNIS COLEMANThis tractor-trailer carrying construction debris crashed on the Vaca Cut Bridge at mile marker 53.5 in Marathon at 9:45 a.m.Tuesday.One lane of northbound traffic was blocked but no one was seriously injured.Specifics of how it happened weren't immediately available.See DUI,2ABy RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comFree parking for the holidaysAs is the case every Christmas, parking and bus service will be free in Key West from this coming Friday until Dec. 26. Parking will be free in all metered spaces more than 1,000 citywide. That's an estimated $16,000 gift from the city. Buses will not run Christmas Day. Meanwhile, city police, the Monroe County Sheriff's Office and the Florida Highway Patrol are stepping up drunk-driving enforcement through Jan. 1. "Lots of folks will be out during this busy holiday season, enjoying themselves and the holiday festivities, and we want everyone to be safe on our roadways," Key West Police Chief Donie Lee said. Police spokeswoman Alyson Crean gave the following tips for holiday travel: Plan ahead by finding a designated driver or other safe ride. Don't hesitate to call a cab, friend or family member; or use public transportation. If someone you know is drinking, don't let him or her get behind the wheel. If you see a suspected impaired driver on the road, contact police. "Your actions may save someone's life, and inaction could cost a life," Crean said.Also,patrols increasing for DUIsKEY WEST

"We may see record prices but also record pain," said Gary Graves, general manager of Keys Fisheries in Marathon. "Prices don't mean anything if you can't catch anything." Harvests since shortly after the season opening Oct. 15 have been "as bad as I can remember during my 45 years in the business," Graves said. "It's just bleak." Keys Fisheries, one of the state's leading wholesalers for stone crabs, has laid off half of its production staff, maybe 20 people, Graves said. "We hate to do it to our people but we're probably not finished," he said Friday. "Right now, a big day for us is 1,000 pounds [of claws]. It should be around 15,000 pounds. We're doing nothing." Keys Fisheries has raised its dockside prices paid to fishermen several times to encourage fishermen to keep their traps in the water. Graves said it costs a fisherman about $1,200 in fuel, labor and other expenses to make a day's trip. The fish house's current prices are $9 per pound for medium-size claws and $17 per pound for the coveted jumbos. "Our wholesale sales prices are higher than that and retail is through the roof," Graves said. "But we can't fill the orders we have." AMarathon community group recently canceled the organization's annual stone crab feast for members because no claws were to be found. The season runs until May 15. Last season, Monroe County produced about 1.1 million pounds of legal-size claws, accounting for a large portion of Florida's total 2.67-million-pound harvest worth an estimated $23.6 million to the commercial fleet. About 1,000 people statewide are licensed to fish traps for stone crabs. Only the claws are kept. Historically, stone-crab harvests have topped 3 million pounds of claws. "The last two years were good and the recruitment looked normal," Graves said. "The first round of trap pulling was fine but it went downhill from there like falling off a cliff." Fishermen and researchers are baffled. "Blame it on global warming, blame it on BP [Deepwater Horizon oil spill], blame it on Mother Nature," Graves said. "Everybody's got an idea but nobody can say why. It's probably a combination of a bunch of things." News reports from stonecrab fleets farther up the Florida Gulf Coast suggest an octopus population explosion. Crabs are a favorite food of octopus, which are smart enough to get into traps. "We've seen more octopus in the 6to 8-pound range, which is abnormal," Graves said. State experts have suggested warm winters may have triggered the octopus boom. "Things could turn around," Graves said, "but realistically the chances of it happening this season are slim."Prices high but harvest is moribundCOMMERCIAL FISHINGBogus trap tags raise concernsAweak harvest of spiny lobster this year could be linked to climate change or crime. "It could be the effect of climate change," Bill Kelly, executive director of the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermen's Association, said Thursday. "It also could be that a large illegal harvest is going unreported." Last summer, state and federal wildlife officers seized 1,512 counterfeit lobster-trap tags from a Miami-Dade County man. Ramon Rojas, 44, of Hialeah was arrested. Some of the fake tags were found on traps Rojas was fishing in the Lower Keys. Trap tags are issued by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to regulate the number of lobster traps in state water. If a trap catches 10 pounds of lobster in season, Kelly said, Rojas had to potential to pull in 15,000 pounds of lobster, possibly worth more than $100,000. "We have no idea how many illegal traps may be out there," Kelly said. "That's a whole lot of product going up the road." Kelly said he recently met with top FWC enforcement officers and fishery managers to discuss improving the tag system to curtail fake tags. "Are we being deceived by illegal traps?" he said. "There's no way to know but our fishermen with decades of experience say it seems like there are more traps out there than ever." Last season, Monroe County fishermen reported catching about 4.9 million pounds of spiny lobster nearly 90 percent of the statewide harvest. Since the season's opening on Aug. 6, this year's catch has been notably lower, Kelly said. Final numbers will not be available until after the season closes March 31.They lead to illegal lobster takeCOMMERCIAL FISHINGBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com mum of 1.1 liters of air. "The machines could not process the volume of air that was being put into them. So they grabbed a drill and put a hole in the exhaust side of the cylinder," Schuhmacher said. If he ultimately gets to inspect the Key West machine, "I'll take photos of the machine and do the analysis of the machine. Then we'll try to analyze the software at the manufacturer's headquarters." The software issue has been going on for more than a decade, but a Jan. 13 order by the Third District Court of Appeal in Miami upheld earlier Monroe County rulings regarding the validity of Intoxilyzer 8000 breathtest results. That ruling grew out of an appeal by Robert Yount, who was arrested for DUI on Roosevelt Boulevard in Key West in 2006. Yount is one of the 35 listed defendants on Schuhmacher's motion to either drop the cases or exclude the breath tests. In that case, judges ruled the test results were open to question because the software, known as source code, is unavailable for examination by independent electrical and computer engineers. Also, an FDLE inspector was fired in 2008 for falsifying test results and telling Miami-area police how to do that. That's made it extremely difficult, though not impossible, to introduce breathtest results in DUI cases in Monroe County. State attorneys are required to have a Florida Department of Law Enforcement analyst testify at each trial as to the device's accuracy. Schuhmacher said the state has been overly secretive when it comes to inspecting the machines and software.Decision awaitsFrom DUI,1AState unveils new auto tagFlorida voters have selected their next license tag. The green-rimmed, leafed-orange winner in a poll of about 50,000 online voters could be released as soon as 2014. It is scheduled to be phased in over two years on Florida's 15 million vehicles. "Sunshine State" is at the plate's bottom edge, and the center is stamped with seven characters instea-d of the traditional six to keep Florida from running out of character combinations. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles created four designs in-house with input from about 20 people, from Florida Department of Law Enforcement officials to tax collectors. The plate redesigns got scathing reviews from Miami Herald columnist Fred Grimm, who shredded the tags as "remarkably bland" and "nondescript." "The four choices are so spectacularly insipid that it's no easy decision," Grimm wrote of the online poll. "It would be easier picking a favorite from Rick Scott's most electrifying speeches." Kevin Cate, who owns a Tallahassee public relations firm, found the plates so distasteful he offered his own design, which DMV rejected. The new tag should send people to www.VisitFlorida.com he argued, which promotes state tourism, restaurants and businesses. "There's no winner of the choices the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles have provided to the people of Florida," he said. "Nobody wins with the new tags."

Wednesday,December 19,2012 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com for more than $400,000 in work that Stanford performed on the project under primary contractor Giannetti. The report indicates that Giannetti issued checks to smaller trucking firms that actually did little or no work. Giannetti executives said they believed Stanford and Sons Trucking had contracted legally with the smaller firms. Broward County Administrator Bertha Henry called the Inspector General Office's finding "both surprising and unexpected" in her June 19 response to the report. "The incidence of contractor misconduct, misrepresentation, falsehoods and scheming ... necessitates immediate action by the county," she wrote. The only penalty specifically outlined against Giannetti was refusing to credit money paid to Stanford and Sons and a related firm toward Giannetti's required small-business quota. Zuelch said the Cudjoe Regional contracts stipulate that winning bidders have local-preference "goals" for hired subcontractors that would amount to about 17 percent of the overall project cost. The FKAAadministers sewer projects for Monroe County in the unincorporated areas except for Key Largo, which has its own sewer district.Company slammedFrom Cudjoe,1AFive seeking three seats on commissionOn an island not exactly known for its youthful population, the youngest candidate in recent city memory will challenge three incumbents and another political newcomer for a seat on the Key Colony Beach City Commission. Ryan Schraffenberger, 25, is among five candidates who've filed and plan to qualify next month for the March 12 commission election. He and Patrick Farritor, 63, will go up against incumbents Jeff Vorick, Jerry Ellis and Mayor/Administrator Ron Sutton. The top three votergetters will be elected. Vorick, 65, is the longest tenured of the group, finishing up his sixth consecutive two-year term. He's been a commissioner almost as long as the 13 years he's been a Key Colony resident. "I basically rely on the voters to tell me what they want and they seem to like someone who represents a voice of common sense and reason. As long as they do, I'm going to keep on sticking my head in there," Vorick said. Vorick said he's proud the city has been able to handle the tough economy. "Without cutting any health and safety issues, we're doing a good job of managing the budget," he said. Vorick said a main issue for him, if re-elected, would be to work on grants for the city to refurbish its sewer plant. Key Colony has been sewered for decades, while most of the Keys are only now either hooking up or still in the construction phase. Sutton, 64, is seeking a fifth consecutive term. He's been the city's mayor and administrator the past five years and a full-time resident since 2002. "I want to continue on; we still have some projects here with stormwater," he said. "We still have six injection wells we'd like to put in if grant money loosens up a little bit. And with our sewer plant ... there's always upgrades and I'd like to continue with that." Ellis, 70, was appointed by fellow commission members to replace Mary Schmidt last March 22. She resigned from the board for personal reasons. While he's relatively new to the commission, Ellis said his longtime volunteerism on various city boards has proven his commitment to the city. "To me, you get there from showing an interest in the city through your efforts to help whenever and wherever you can. That should be the prerequisite to wanting to be a [commissioner] because it shows you have more than a cursory interest," he said. Ellis said a main issue for him is for the city to fix city-owned lateral sewer connections in conjunction with resident upgrades. Many are outdated and leak, he said. "Each resident had a test done and if they found that the sewer pipes in the home were leaking, then they have to be fixed. It's a major thing. If they're required to do that, we need to be fixing ours, too," he said. Ellis added that most of Key Colony's "problems are relatively simple and ... listening and common sense will go a long way in solving all of our issues." Farritor, 63, is a newcomer to Key Colony, but has lived in the Middle Keys off and on since 1993. This would be his first run at political office. "I don't really have, per se, any political experience, but I know I have a mature and intelligent point of view. I have the interest and the time to do it," he said. Farritor says he's running more to bring "fresh ideas" to the board than anything else. "I think there can be more accurate and attentive leadership on Key Colony Beach. I'm just here to try to get elected and be a benefit to the community," he said.3 incumbents among hopefuls in electionKEY COLONY BEACHPanel: Create sewer oversight boardIslamorada officials will consider forming an elected or appointed board of commissioners that would oversee the village's wastewater operations. The move is supported by councilmen Mike Forster and Ted Blackburn, but Mayor Ken Philipson, Councilwoman Deb Gillis and Councilman Dave Purdo aren't convinced. Philipson and Gillis said such a board could have served more of a purpose before the $91 million project's engineering firm was hired. But now that work on the project to build a sewer system has begun, they call the idea one whose time has come and gone. The five-member council agreed Dec. 13 to hold a workshop to discuss the matter in February. Forster said a separate board that only deals with wastewater issues would free up the Village Council to handle other issues that he feels are not receiving enough attention. "I go to a hockey match and a fight breaks out," he said. "Every time I go to a Village Council meeting, a wastewater meeting breaks out." The issue was raised during a presentation by David Makepeace, chairman of the Water Quality Improvement Advisory Committee, during the council's regular meeting. Makepeace presented two scenarios: Adependent wastewater board where members would be appointed by the Village Council; and an independent board, whose members would be elected by the residents of Islamorada. For a dependent district, Makepeace said, each council member would nominate two candidates, and the entire council would decide on the best five. Makepeace said his committee doesn't recommend an elected board, but he and his fellow members did study the option. Under the scenario presented by Makepeace, board members would serve staggered terms starting in 2014. The top three vote getters would serve until 2018. The final two seats would be open again in 2016. Some of the board's top responsibilities would be communicating with the Village Council, supervising the sewer project's enterprise fund, managing the village's joint wastewater agreement with Key Largo and hiring a wastewater manager.But majority of council not in favorISLAMORADA 44.99Makers Mark Bourbon1.75 L43.99Crown Royal Black1.75 L49.99Grey Goose VodkaSelected Varieties, 1.75 L11.99Fleischmanns VodkaOr Gin, 1.75 L19.99Captain Morgan Spiced RumOriginal or Silver, 1.75 L18.99Bacardi Light RumOr Gold, Limn, or Oakheart Spiced, 1.75 L18.99Ezra Brooks Bourbon1.75 L17.99Svedka Vodka1.75 L27.99Absolut VodkaSelected Varieties, 1.75 L29.99Bombay Sapphire Gin1.75 L33.99Jack Daniels Tennessee WhiskeyOr Tennessee Honey, 1.75 L27.99Dewars White Label Scotch1.75 L20.99Appleton Gold Rum1.75 L13.99Inver House Scotch1.75 L189.97Johnnie Walker Blue Label750 ml16.99Baileys Irish CreamSelected Varieties, 750 ml23.99Chivas Regal Scotch750 ml 36.99Patrn Silver Tequila750 mlE-Mia/Jax/Lakeland 4C-ThursdayPrices effective Thursday, December 20 through Monday, December 24, 2012.Liquor items are only available at Publix Liquors.

Roosevelt work halts for ChristmasWith a halt in construction coming up for Christmas, around 20 percent of the North Roosevelt Boulevard rebuild in Key West has been completed since it started in April. Crews working for contractor DeMoya Group Inc. will stop working on Friday and come back to the 2.9mile job site on Jan. 3, project spokesman Dean Walters said. The state Department of Transportation is paying $31.8 million of the $41.5 million project's cost. The city of Key West is putting in $4.3 million for a new sewer main and the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority is adding $5.4 million for a new water line. The goal is a June 2014 completion for a total of 851 total construction days. The entire stretch of Key West's main traffic artery includes a new seawall bordered by a 20-foot-wide landscaped prome nade, four lanes of traffic each 11 feet wide, a 10-foot center turn lane and a sixfoot sidewalk on the business side of the road. Walters said the seawall reconstruction would begin in January. And after a back and forth with city staff over the summer, DOTdecided the new seawall will not be bounded by a 42-inch-tall railing that locals thought would take away from the water view. Reaching a compromise with DOT administrators, the seawall will be bordered by a 24-inch-wide, 9-inch-tall curb. The design and permitting of the new road began more than a decade ago. There are 35 scheduled blackout days to accommodate large tourist influxes like the lobster mini-season, Fantasy Fest and the Super Boat International races. For the duration of the construction, DOTis maintaining a website, www.fdotmonroe.com/ keywest that allows motorists to register for email updates about changes in work hours, traffic patterns and the like.Construction starting up again Jan.3KEY WESTBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com www.keysnet.com 2ndPlace $2,500 3rdPlace $1,500 4thPlace $750 5thPlace $250 Cash Prizes!1,000 tickets at a cost of $35 each will be sold for this raffle … 1 in 200 Chance of Winning!

Rep. Dennis Baxley (ROcala) was reacting to the elementary school shooting in Newtown, Conn., that left 20 children and seven adults dead, including the gunman. Declaring schools as gun-free zones makes them more dangerous, he said. "We need to be more realistic at looking at this policy. In our zealousness to protect people from harm we've created all these gun-free zones and what we've inadvertently done is we've made them a target," he said. Baxley's idea wasn't welcomed by the Florida Education Association, the state's largest teachers union. "I don't think it's really a good idea to introduce guns into the classrooms or into schools," FEAspokesman Mark Pudlow said. "The idea doesn't seem to make sense to us." Baxley said he understood some people would respond to the Connecticut shootings with a call for more gun control laws, but he said the laws don't work. "If you prepare ordinary people to take responsibility for stopping violence, they do. Otherwise we're just creating more vulnerability," he said. "I know that it's very foreign to people that live in a more left and urbanized culture to see how that works, but in fact it does work." Baxley was the sponsor of the bill that became known as the "Stand Your Ground" law, which allows deadly force to be used if necessary to prevent death or serious injury. The 2005 law came under scrutiny this year after neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old. Baxley said he doesn't plan to file legislation allowing school officials or teachers to carry guns, because he is chairman of the House Judiciary Committee and he doesn't want to preside over a meeting that hears one of his own bills.Union says idea doesn't make senseCONNECTICUT MASSACREBRENDAN FARRINGTONAssociated PressNew college online only?Florida's 12th university became a reality earlier this year, and there is already discussion about whether the state needs a 13th. House Speaker Will Weatherford challenged the board governing state universities to look into creating an online-only school in order to increase access to distance education. And Monday, the Board of Governors received the results of an independent study on the topic and discussed next steps. Conducted by the Parthenon Group, the report outlines four options for Florida's universities and colleges, both public and private. The first allows each school to continue operating its own distance education program, represented the status quo, and it got the least amount of support from the Board of Governors' Strategic Planning Committee. The second and third options -systemwide collaboration or allowing one or more institutions to serve as the lead drivers of new programs -got a more positive response. The committee asked staff to research a hybrid of these two choices ahead of next month's full board meeting. Board of Governors Chairman Dean Colson said he would like to have the state colleges and universities submit proposals to serve as lead institutions in order to create a sense of innovation and competition. "We want to give them a prod," he said. But in a written response to the Parthenon report, state university provosts said they have "serious concerns" about creating a new university, such as the cost, competition with existing programs, establishing accreditation and creating another bureaucracy. Forty percent of students attending a state university or state college took at least one online course during the 2010-2011 academic year. That is above the national average, 31 percent.

Raschein gets an earfulFunding for sewers, the future of the old Seven Mile Bridge and whether the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority board should be an elected panel dominated the conversation at a Monday town-hall meeting hosted by state Rep. Holly Raschein. The freshman District 120 representative scheduled the meeting to gather input on what constituents have in mind for the six available bills she could file during the 2013 Legislative session. Roughly 20 or so local politicians and residents showed up at the Marathon Government Center to offer ideas. In November, Keys voters overwhelmingly passed a nonbinding referendum to have the five-member Aqueduct Authority board elected rather than governor-appointed as it is now. However, only the Legislature can make the change since the Legislature created the water utility. Raschein has voiced support for the change after initially being cool to pursuing it. "The voters have the right to decide who their water leaders are," she said. "I'll be submitting that [bill] pretty soon, tomorrow even. The groundwork has been laid and it's not a new request by any means." Asimilar bill passed the Legislature in 2005 but then-Gov. Jeb Bush vetoed it. Monroe County Mayor George Neugent said the county would pursue newly elected District 39 state Sen. Dwight Bullard as a sponsor on that side of the Legislature. District 39 includes Monroe. Raschein said she's reached out to Bullard. Next up was sewer funding, a large priority for years in the Florida Keys. Many stressed the importance of continued allocations from the 2009 Mayfield grant authorizing $200 million for Keys sewer construction. Of that, $50 million came to the Keys last year. "It's my No. 1 one budget priority," Raschein said. "The second $50 million we're working on now," County Administrator Roman Gastesi said. Of the first $50 million, $30 million went to unincorporated Monroe for its Cudjoe Regional system and the rest went to Islamorada. For the next $50 million, local officials have agreed that Marathon and the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District would each get $20 million. The Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority would receive $5 million, Key West $4 million and Key Colony Beach $1 million. Finally, several people asked for Raschein's support for the refurbishment of the old Seven Mile Bridge. The 2.3-mile span has been closed to autos and fishing for years because of its deteriorated state. "This is a big-ticket item. We've worked closely with the [state] Department of Transportation. They've been helpful, but we hope they'll be more helpful than they've been," Neugent said. Neugent pointed out that DOThas offered to fund half of whatever it costs to repair the bridge. Estimates have been in the $16 million to $20 million range. But he pointed out that the DOTexpects someone "to take responsibility" for the bridge, which leads to Pigeon Key, if it offers funding. "DOTwants to sign off on this bridge to someone, and the obvious one is Monroe County, hopefully with the city of Marathon," Neugent said. Pigeon Key Foundation board member Jason Koler told Raschein his board has met with DOTofficials roughly 10 times and they've offered no concrete cost to fix the bridge. He asked Raschein to track down "hard dollar figures" and expected maintenance costs over 20 years. "They won't bring one set of plans to the table to let us know. They always ballpark everything," he said. "We won't hesitate to ask for that information," Raschein said.Freshman rep talks sewers, FKAA and moreSTATE LEGISLATURE RASCHEINBy RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com

EDITORIALALF report lacks teethLETTERS TO THE EDITORPython problem is hypeIt was announced that there will be a hunting season (Jan. 12 to Feb. 16), created for the much-maligned pythons of South Florida. I welcome this measure as just one more step in normalizing the status of pythons as just another new species in our environment. For decades, we have had new species introduced into our state. We have managed to grow with them and include them in our culture and in our nature management. There is no need for endless federal funding to carry scorched-earth tactics and search-anddestroy missions against pythons when a simple hunting season every year will manage the so-called problem quite well. My questions: How will the state of Florida reward hunting in federal lands (Everglades National Park), where they have no jurisdiction? Will hunting be allowed in a national park (something that has never been allowed throughout the country since Teddy Roosevelt created the park system)? If the rewards are $1,500 for the person with the most pythons and $1,000 for the one with the biggest python, what is there to prevent one from hunting pythons and selling them on eBay for the going market rate of $150 to $200 a python and make a bigger profit on their own? At the end, will these pythons be slaughtered mercilessly or will their culling be monitored to ensure that they are not abused to death? I am certain that a market can be created for their skins, meat and body parts, just like there is a market for alligators and other species. Frank Resillez Key LargoNothing like the KeysCongratulations to Key Colony Beach's residents, and others, for their sponsorship of the annual Christmas boat parade. My wife and I drive down every year just for this event. We are former Key West residents who now reside in Delray Beach, but we won't miss this terrific occasion no matter what happens. We stay in one of the hotels nearby and enjoy having dinner at the Key Colony Inn (the finest fresh fish there is) and visiting all the places along the Overseas Highway along Marathon. We have even been lucky enough to have been invited for a boat ride in the past and join in the fun with those participating. Once, we rode on one of the beautiful yachts that had a steel drum played by a lovely Marathon lady resident weaving her beat under the gorgeous Christmas lights all across the yacht. Surely, this is one of the rarest things that can happen to anybody. Key Colony has something to really be proud of and I would like to add how impressed we are with how beautifully kept Key Colony is. When we return from this event, our friends ask us where we went and we have so much joy telling them about the parade, the seafood, Key Colony, our favorite fishing boat the Marathon Lady and all the places we go when there. The Christmas events here, though quite lovely, don't measure up to this fabulous Christmas boat parade. Next year we know there will be a new batch of visitors heading to Key Colony with us. One last thing: We hope the local leadership will find a way to get Florida Keys Marathon Airport going with a top-notch airline because so many of our friends from New Jersey and New York are always asking us about it when they get our e-mails with all the pictures we take on our digital camera, and since they are not the biggest drivers in the world, they like to fly. This might be something worth considering. Oh, did I mention that great park with those beautiful tennis courts? Wow, it's right off the Overseas Highway. It just doesn't get any better than that. See you in the near future! Frank Simmons Delray BeachDespite strong recommendations, governor-appointed panel produced little to change the industryLast year, the Miami Herald revealed the horrors Florida's elderly and the infirm endured at the hands of unscrupulous assisted-living facility (ALF) operators. They were abuses that Gov. Rick Scott pledged to abolish when he convened the Florida Assisted Living Workgroup. Its charge: "Ensure the safety and wellbeing" of Florida residents. Then, he stacked the group with representatives of the ALF industry and sympathizers. One needn't channel Nostradamus to predict the result. Last month, the panel issued its proposals a report long on cosmetic tweaks, but short on strong solutions to protect an especially vulnerable population. Overall, it's a disappointingly weak offering, shy of the muscular reforms necessary to attack the chronic problems plaguing the industry's bad actors. For instance, the report insists current regulations are sufficient to police disreputable or incompetent providers. Never mind that under those regulations, residents languished in filth. Or were doped with sedatives. Or were illegally bound or beaten into submission. Still others never lived to tell of their wretched treatment. At least 70 ALF residents since 2002 died from abuse or neglect. Even so, panelists recommended shielding operators from punishment. It recommended limiting low-level fines to bad operators. And while conceding punishment is appropriate for chronically poor performers, panelists considered sanctions a poor tool to elevate quality industry wide. Perhaps. But stiffer penalties would be a powerful way to deter abuses. Certainly, there are worthy proposals among the report's 53 suggestions. Hard to argue that boosting the number and quality of activities on the slate for ALF residents isn't worthwhile. Yet, it's hard to be effusive in praise for such ideas when other prudent moves -like banning managers if they previously lost their licenses running facilities where flagrant abuse or death occurred -were rejected. Or when the workgroup failed to build on the strong proposals to bolster safety and care that a previous workgroup pitched last year -proposals such as strengthening state regulators, requiring stronger credentials for administrators, and doing more frequent inspections. Or when the panel suggested shielding ALFs from lawsuits. Rather than boost the safety and welfare of Floridians in assisted-living facilities, the workgroup mostly ensured owners and managers wouldn't bear more responsibility for those under their care. The thousands of ALF residents in Florida and their families deserve better.

My wife Sherri and I packed up the cooler and lowered our 2003 Parker 2120 into the water. We had a great day on the reef and came home with a nice 30-inch gag grouper. We moved right along to get the gear stowed and the boat lifted out of the canal. As we've done hundreds of times before, we connected the front davit cable to the bow lift ring and the rear davit cables to the factoryinstalled D rings bolted through the transom of the boat. Sherri clicked on the davit motors and the Parker started to rise. As the vessel approached 4 to 5 feet above the water, the unthinkable happened. It only took a second as the boat came crashing down into the canal. My wife and I were in shock as we helplessly watched the scene unfolding. My first thought was a drop cable from the spreader bar had snapped, but no. As I looked at disaster, the drop cable was intact. My next thought was we obviously placed the hook from the drop cable incorrectly into the port-side lift ring. We had a very dangerous situation on our hands the boat was now suspended by two cables with no obvious solution to right the vessel. As neighbors and friends congregated, the old salts discussed several plans of action. Eventually one of the proposed methods worked and the knot in my stomach slowly dissipated as the Parker started to roll back onto its hull. The next step was to re-hook the drop cable to the port side and get the boat onto shore. What I discovered next shocked and baffled me. The factory-installed lift D ring on the port side had completely snapped off. Instantly I realized two things: It wasn't our mistake that caused the accident, and my wife would have been killed if by chance the starboard D ring had snapped. As I examined the remainder of the ring closely, I found metal fatigue coupled with salt were most likely the culprits. The following day I found my way to our local Sea Center to purchase new D rings for both sides of the boat. I told my story to the shop owner and I was shocked to find out this is a common occurrence. It seems that stern lift rings of this most common type have a life span of about 10 years. Interestingly enough, that's the age of my Parker. I'll never shake the thought that I could have lost my best friend over lack of preparation, knowledge and a $15 part. Have you changed your D rings lately?

"We've made a lot of progress, but we still have a long way to go," said Rep. David Richardson, a Miami Beach Democrat and one of two openly gay lawmakers elected this year -the first in Florida's Legislature. The 2012 election saw Florida become one of seven states to break that barrier. Nationwide, lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender candidates were elected to the U.S. Senate and House, and dozens to state legislatures. Richardson, a 55-yearold forensic accountant, credits redistricting and the open seat in House District 113 for his win. He said that for all the voters he met during the campaign, none asked him about his sexual orientation, although it was reported by local news media. "In this area, people maybe don't care so much about someone's sexual orientation," he said. Richardson was sworn in on Nov. 20 along with Rep. Joe Saunders, an Orlando Democrat and field director of Equality Florida, an LGBTadvocacy group. Saunders had led the 2008 campaign against Florida's Amendment 2, the constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage and civil unions, which passed 62 percent to 38 percent. Saunders is also a veteran of clashes over local ordinances statewide, including a successful effort earlier this week to add LGBTprotections for faculty and students in the Orange County schools. He was the campaign manager for Equality is Gainesville's Business, which prevented the repeal of LGBTprotections in 2009. ANov. 20 photo of Saunders on the House floor with his partner, Donald Rupe, appeared widely on the Internet after Saunders posted it on his Facebook page. "It was the first time ... a member stood on the floor with their partner," Saunders wrote. "It was a moment I'll remember for the rest of my life." It was memorable for Susan Gage, too. Now a massage therapist and LGBTactivist, Gage was for 12 years a radio reporter. She hadn't been inside the Capitol since leaving that job -until the day of Saunders' and Richardson's swearingin. "Nobody questioned me when I fell in with the reporter pack to gain access to the House floor," she blogged afterward. "I gave Joe a big, long hug, and promised him that the community was there to help him however he needed it. "The number of times I would have to interview members of the Senate who were highly homophobic and the things that they would say to my face -I'd have to take it," Gage said. "That was pretty rough. I hope that some of the rhetoric will have to change now." But activists say the battle will continue. Groups that oppose same sex marriage say they'll continue their effort, but many deny they have a problem with gay people. "Our issue is not so much with people that have a same-sex attraction," said John Stemberger, president of the Florida Family Policy Council, a conservative Republican group that advocates against same-sex marriage and adoptions. "My issue is with people who identify with this socio-political movement, 'gay.'" "There are many homosexual persons who just want to be left alone and just want to live their lives normally," Stemberger said. "But what's unfortunate, and what we aggressively oppose, is this notion of trying to transform society. And 'gay' as in-your-face, loud and proud, forcing everyone to buy into your assumptions about life and human sexuality. And if you don't, we're going to shout you down and call you a bigot." Stemberger said he realizes younger voters are more inclined to support same-sex marriage than older ones. APolitico/George Washington University poll of 1,000 likely voters conducted Dec. 2 to 6 found that 63 percent of 18-to-29year-olds support same-sex marriage, while just three in 10 seniors do. "Younger people, who tend to view this as a civil rights issue, overwhelmingly supported gay marriage," Politico reported.They're state's first openly gay lawmakersBy MARGIE MENZEL News Service of FloridaSTATE LEGISLATURE

Wednesday,December 19,2012 7A Keynoter KeysNet.com BusinessBoat sales jump 10% this yearMore evidence that the U.S. economy is climbing out of the recession: Sales of new recreational powerboats are estimated to be up by 10 percent in 2012, according to the National Marine Manufacturers Association. "We are pleased to see the industry growing," President Thom Dammrich said. "Our projection is the industry will grow in 2013 by another 5 to 10 percent." Dammrich said the level of growth depends on conditions like consumer confidence and the housing market and sustained increases in Americans' participation in outdoor recreation. The 2012 projections represent the first signs of steady growth across the powerboat market since the economy hit bottom in 2008-09 and new boat production dropped 80 percent. Even now, Dammrich, said production and retail sales are only about half of what they were during the peak in 2007. Fueling the growth in new boat sales are purchases in the 15to 26-foot range, which make up 96 percent of the 12.4 million boats registered in the U.S., according to the NMMA. While the numbers are up in almost every segment of the industry, the toppers are pontoon boats. "Twenty-five percent of all boats sold today are pontoon boats," Dammrich said. "They're a very versatile boat, very stable. They can be large and roomy. You can fish. You can swim. You can get the family out for the day." Dammrich said the only category that has not turned around is sterndrive inboards over 30 feet. Larger and more expensive than the typical family boat, these models are often purchased through home-equity loans, he said. Another factor is this year's requirement that sterndrive inboard engines have catalytic converters, which increases the cost significantly.Most popular are 15 to 26 feet longBy SUSAN COCKINGscocking@miamiherald.comBOATING Keynoter photo by LARRY KAHNBoats like this one at the Marathon Boat Yard are selling the best,the national trade group says.Battle joined over SuperBowl bidSouth Florida risks fielding a divided team for the 50th Super Bowl if it can't resolve a conflict with the Miami International Boat Show. Long a hassle for Super Bowl organizers, the boatshow issue now seems to be something of a dividing line among local leaders charged with pursuing the country's largest sporting event. Arecent planning meeting at Sun Life Stadium for the 2016 Super Bowl bid reportedly got heated when MiamiDade's tourism director, William Talbert, repeated his position that Miami can't host the Super Bowl and the boat show on the same weekend. The NFLmay want to move its championship to President's Day Weekend, the boat show's home for decades, and the potential overlap has caused a rift among the key players that helped give South Florida a record 10 Super Bowls. "We've worked great together in the past, and we'll work through this,''said Rodney Barreto, the longtime head of South Florida's Super Bowl Host Committee who has a home in Key Largo. "We're right in the middle of negotiating things." Though the boat show has complicated South Florida's past Super Bowl bids, the pursuit of the anniversary game in 2016 has brought more intrigue than ever. In 2010, the NFLbegan asking cities to reserve President's Day Weekend as one of three potential slots for the Super Bowl in case it ever extended the championship schedule into the middle of February. But South Florida's two main tourism bureaus previously have declined to pursue hosting the game if the NFLopted to hold it on the same weekend as the boat show. Instead, they've jointly bid on only the remaining weekends. But in recent weeks, Broward's tourism bureau has signaled it won't go along with that approach for 2016.A soft bid'"I will not support a soft bid," said Nicki Grossman, president of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention and Visitors Bureau, a government agency. "My county won't do it. Asoft bid is anything short of what the NFLis looking for. Which is three weekends." Grossman said Broward is ready to step in and be the Super Bowl hub if MiamiDade can't because of the boat show. That's in part what happened during the Super Bowl's last trip to South Florida, in 2010, when most of the NFL's official events and facilities were housed in and around Fort Lauderdale. But such a scenario could complicate matters for the Miami Dolphins as the team considers a pitch to use Miami-Dade hotel taxes to fund improvements to the team's stadium in Miami Gardens. The Dolphins and the NFL have said the improvements, including a partial roof, are crucial for capturing the 2016 Super Bowl from the other finalist, San Francisco, home to a new $1.2 billion stadium in nearby Santa Clara. The losing city will take on Houston for the 2017 Super Bowl. Barreto, a partner in one of Miami's top lobbying firms, said he is in talks with boatshow organizers about moving to another weekend for 2016. But if those negotiations fail, Barreto is also floating aggressive moves to let Miami accommodate the Super Bowl while the boat show takes place on Miami Beach. Those ideas include docking barges or even cruise ships in downtown Miami to accommodate NFLevents and the throngs of fans, sponsors and media that come to the Super Bowl each year, according to people involved in the 2016 bid.Jax redux?Housing Super Bowl visitors on ships is bound to invite comparisons to Jacksonville's widely panned turn as a Super Bowl host in 2005, when a lack of hotel rooms forced organizers to turn to its port for help on accommodations. But the fact that Barreto raised the option in private meetings reflects the priority being put on keeping Miami in the Super Bowl mix. "We're a big city that can hold multiple events in our town," Barreto said, while declining to confirm the cruise-ship idea. "I'm not totally convinced the boat show needs to move." Central to the Super Bowl standoff is Talbert, president of the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau. In a Nov. 29 interview, he was adamant the Miami area does not have enough hotel rooms for the Super Bowl, the boat show and the Coconut Grove Arts Festival, another major annual event the same weekend. Talbert said "it's not physically possible in Miami to host Super Bowl during the Presidents' Day weekend."Tense talksTalbert has not responded tointerview requests about the Super Bowl since. But a closed-door meeting with the host committee at Sun Life late last week reportedly got tense when Talbert pushed back against Barreto's contention that Miami could host both events, according to several sources close to the committee. Barreto said the meeting involved "a very frank discussion" but would not discuss details. Amid the tension, the Dolphins and Barreto have established a vetting process for the 2016 Super Bowl that in some ways pits Miami against Fort Lauderdale. While past Super Bowls have purposely straddled the county line to justify receiving upward of $6 million from Broward and Miami-Dade governments, the NFLwants a smaller footprint for 2016, said Dolphins CEO Mike Dee. "You're going to see this urban core area with a concentrated critical mass of activities in one place," Dee said. That helps explain why, for the first time, Broward and Miami-Dade's tourism bureaus made separate proposals to the Super Bowl host committee this year rather than collaborating on a single plan, participants said.Miami-Dade, Broward lock headsBy DOUGLAS HANKSdhanks@MiamiHerald.com TOURISM Miami Herald photo by AL DIAZMiami Dolphin Kevin Burnett rushes the field before the start of Sunday's 24-3 Dolphins win over the Jacksonville Jaguars at Sun Life Stadium.South Florida has hosted a record 10 Super Bowls,but a split among Miami-Dade and Broward counties could impact a possible 11th one the overall 50th Super Bowl in 2016 Some tax breaks already expiredWhile much of Washington is consumed by the debate over tax cuts scheduled to expire next year, a big package of tax breaks already expired this year.

Multy ties Conch scoring markAfter tiny Tanisha Multy scored 32 points tying the school record to lead the Key West High girls basketball team to a hard-fought 56-48 victory Saturday afternoon over St. Brendan, she was raised high off the floor by far-from-tiny Elliott Valdez, a member of the Conch boys team. Coach Tony McDowell quickly shooed the beaming Valdez back into the Bobby Menendez Gym stands because the post-game handshakes were still to come. Afterward, Multy who is 5 feet 3, thin, and plays with flying dreadlocks basked in adulation. She was congratulated by Chelsea Storr, who set the record two seasons ago. Multy had driven over and over for layups some after length-of-the-court runs and also made two high-arching three-point shots with an unorthodox launching style. "I learned to shoot that way from my brother," she said, referring to former Conch player Richard Multy. Had she not missed seven free throws the Conchs as a team were 16 of 43 from the foul line she would have easily broken Storr's record. But she was happy with 32, a total she had never envisioned "not in a high school game." McDowell was elated, too. "I've coached her since she was a little kid in the P.A.L. league," he said.The Conchs, who avenged an early-season loss to St. Brendan, had to stave off a Sabres'comeback that cut the lead to 44-42 lead in the fourth quarter.

Dolphins coach Cindy Durkin joked how thick the bugs were on a muggy December evening and that everyone was ready for the game to be over. It was just 1:15 into the second half as Marathon went home with an 8-0 win.The Dolphins netted seven first-half goals, and Regan Durkin finished the game off with a shot from just outside the 18-yard box into the upper right corner. An eightgoal difference is a mercyrule victory in prep soccer.Marathon was without its lone two starting seniors in Taylor Konrath and Jasmine De La Cruz. Konrath is nursing an Achilles tendon injury and De La Cruz had the flu. Despite that, Coach Durkin said it was good early preparation for next season. "Even without our two senior starters, we were able to pull off a resounding win. I said, This is a good warmup for next year. You guys are going to have to do this and carry us.'So it was a nice little preview," she said. Five different players scored Marathon's eight goals. Gaby Ceja, Brandi Spalten and Regan Durkin each had two while Savannah Rodamer and Abi Connell each netted one.Connell's goal makes her the 13th player out of 16 on the roster two of whom are goalies to score a goal this year.

The Sabres made their first five shots and led 11-5."I knew they were tired I could tell that in the fourth quarter Friday night," coach Anton Lopez said, referring to the Conchs'77-67 loss the night before to Gulliver Prep. "But I knew our athleticism would kick in and we would come back."He was right. The Conchs outscored the Sabres, 19-4, the rest of the first quarter and went on to a 72-63 victory.The athleticism that kicked in was provided in beautiful choreography, mostly by relentless guards Daniel Thompson (27 points, including two on a 360-degree spin for a layup) and Lanre'Scott (22). They seemed to sense each other's every movement, as they have since they were kids playing in the Police Athletic League.Scott also made three three-point shots, as did senior Donald Roberts, who emerged from a shooting slump, contributing 11 points.The Conchs led, 40-29, at the half, 55-43 after the third quarter, and were up as many as 19 in the fourth.

Wednesday,December 19,2012 3B Keynoter KeysNet.com Living Splendid Splinter honored againBack in July, postage stamps honoring baseball greats Ted Williams, Joe DiMaggio, Willie Stargell and Larry Doby were unveiled at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, N.Y. Sunday, the U.S. Postal Service unveiled the Williams stamp again, this time in Islamorada, where he loved to fish the flats, and had a home. The ceremony at Robbie's Marina on Lower Matecumbe Key included local fishing legends such as Stu Apte and Skip Bradeen, among others. Williams is considered the greatest player for the Boston Red Sox ever, and one of the greatest overall. He's the last batter to hit .400 (.406 in 1941) and finished his playing days with a .344 average, 521 homers and two MVP awards over 19 years. But his love of fishing was right up there with baseball, and he was a fixture on the Islamorada flats. His home was on Florida Bay. Williams, an early advocate of catch-and-release fishing, helped launch the Islamorada Gold Cup Tarpon Tournament that expanded the popularity of backcountry fly fishing, and was among the first major celebrities to fish the Redbone benefit tournament founded by Gary and Susan Ellis. When the stamp was initially unveiled, Gary Ellis said: "When Ted lent his name, that made a big difference in being able to lure other celebrities." Apte met Williams in 1948, sharing his secret fishing spots for three months before he knew Williams was a baseball player. Williams, known as the Splendid Splinter, later signed his $100,000 annual endorsement with Sears at Apte's home in the Keys because Williams didn't want to miss out of three days on fishing with a trip to Chicago. Williams died in 2002 in Inverness, southwest of Ocala.Postage stamp is unveiled in IslamoradaLOWER MATECUMBE KEY Photo by ANDY NEWMANFlorida Keys fishing guides (from left) Stu Apte,Gary Ellis and Skip Bradeen,along with Pastor Tony Hammon from Island Community Church,show off reproductions of the Ted Williams stamp during Sunday's ceremony.Keynoter StaffALL PAID OFF After 20 years of Christmas parties,plant and bake sales, craft fairs and more,the Marathon Garden Club celebrated this month with a party at the Key Colony Inn to mark the final mortgage payment on their property at mile marker 50 bayside.Cutting a cake are club President Rosemary Thomas (left) and Toni Appell,president when the property was purchased in 1992.

Comet and Cupid were remarkably calm, considering this is the busy season for reindeer. Such was the spirit one recent morning at the Double R Reindeer Ranch just outside of Midlothian, Santa's Texas reindeer division, operated by Rick and Roberta Smith. "We're busy six days a week right now," said Rick Smith, wearing an elf outfit that he designed. "We won't get a break till January." It's been that way for the past four years, since the Smiths started the reindeer ranch, a project that was encouraged by Don Shelton, a longtime Fort Worth-based Santa. Lt. Col. Roberta Smith was getting ready to retire from the U.S. Air Force and Rick Smith was headed that way from the Texas Department of Public Safety. "We wanted to raise something unique," Roberta Smith said. "I knew Dr. Shelton and once he heard about what we wanted to do, he suggested the reindeer. We didn't think of it much at first, but he kept after us." And that's how the Double R Reindeer Ranch was born. The Smiths started with young reindeer Comet and Cupid. They weighed about 125 pounds and will eventually top out at 450 to 500 pounds when fully grown. The couple already had horses and miniature donkeys on their 15-acre spread, so fourlegged creatures were nothing new. The couple got special feed for Santa's helpers, registered them with the Reindeer Owners and Breeders Association and, of course, bought evaporation coolers for the sizzling Texas heat. "Since we got them so young, they have been able to adapt to the heat," Rick Smith said. "But we still try to keep them in cool conditions." The Double R now has six reindeer, and even though the last two months of the year are the busiest, the ranch is active most of the year. Santas from across the country visit the Double R during the year to take photographs with the reindeer to update their portfolios. The reindeer are also available for hourly events, seasonal leases, commercials, and television and movie work. Generally, fees are $350 an hour, a minimum of two hours, for local events within 50 miles of the ranch. And the Double R reindeer go to all kinds of events, including the Ho-Ho-Holiday Show with the Waco Symphony Orchestra. "We went there last year and they've asked us back," Rick Smith said.

ANew Year's Eve tradition, the procession of pooches begins at noon at the corner of Whitehead and Fleming streets in Key West. The walking route, deliberately kept brief to cater to the dachshunds'short legs, is to encompass the 400 block of Fleming Street, 500 block of Duval and entire one-block length of Appelrouth Lane. The 2011 wiener walk included 227 dogs, many of them costumed or dressed in offbeat accessories. Among the standouts were a "newshound" wearing a functioning video camera, a "horse" with a cowboy doll rider and a bright-green "iguana" with a three-foot-long tail. Canine participants typically include miniature and standard shorthaired, wirehaired and longhaired dachshunds. Some trot briskly along the route, while others ride in wagons or strollers. Dogs are accompanied by a supply wagon carrying water for thirsty walkers and plastic bags for quick cleanup of any accidents as well as providing transport for dogs that get tired along the way. The procession usually draws a few dachshund imposters bearing a suspicious resemblance to other breeds. Since pedigrees aren't checked, even wiener wannabes can strut their stuff in the lighthearted annual amble. There is no cost to participate, but donations of dog and cat food are requested for the community pet-food pantry operated by St. Mary Star of the Sea Outreach Mission.Dachshunds get marching orders Dec.31KEY WEST Photo by ANDY NEWMANGet your dachshund styling,like these two in last year's parade. Avoid packing on the holiday poundsShortly after the mall doors opened, Douglas and Ouley Saulsberry made their rounds through the hallways. They walk the halls of both levels every day except Sunday, getting in about four miles before most stores open at 10 a.m. "I call the mall the poor man's gym," says Douglas Saulsberry, 61. He and his wife, Ouley retired teachers don't veer from their workout routine at the Twelve Oaks Mall, even during the busy holiday season. "I find by getting up and doing this, I have more energy to take care of all the extra things I have to do doing the holiday," says Ouley Saulsberry, 62. "I find it even more important because I love sweets and there are more sweets to eat during the holidays," says Douglas Saulsberry. "Just last night I had a slice of rum cake, sweet potato pie and Haagen-Dazs ice cream." The Saulsberrys are hardly alone. After all, tis the season to eat, drink and be merry. There's almost no getting around it. There are Christmas cookies at the office, pies and cakes baking in the oven at home, and holiday parties galore! With all the extra stuff on to-do lists shopping, kids concerts, shopping, church programs, shopping, traveling, more shopping it's easy to get off track and pile on the extra pounds during the holidays. "It's easy to gain 5 to 15 pounds just from Thanksgiving to New Year's," says Colleen Greene, Wellness Coordinator for MHealth, a healthy living initiative for students and employees at the University of Michigan. But you don't have to pack on holiday pounds. The University of Michigan and various fitness educators have advice aimed at helping people through the eating season.MaintenanceThink one word: Maintain. Maintain your weight and maintain and/or implement a work out routine. "This is not the time to go on a diet," Greene says. "For most people, that would mean setting yourself up for failure." It's more realistic to aim not to gain, she says. Akey ingredient of maintaining weight and health during the holidays is making sure you get in some exercise just as the Saulsberrys do. "People tend not to be as diligent with their routines during the holidays, but there are ways to burn calories even with all the extra things you have to do," says Christina Eyers, supervisor of athletic training at Henry Ford Health System. "You can burn 240 calories during household chores. Instead of using a leaf blower, get out and rake the leaves. Find ways to be really active in your daily living. If you're going to the mall anyway, park far from the door. Take fruits and vegetables with you to snack on. And take a bottle of water to drink so you won't be tempted by their sugary drinks." Eyers and Greene say don't let company be an excuse. Instead, get active with your loved ones. "Go for a family walk. Go out and play touch football together," Greene says. "Put on some music and dance."Get outdoorsThey advise finding outdoor fitness activities that you'll enjoy so the holidays and ensuing cold weather don't become an excuse for inactivity. That's exactly what Delores Muller, 40, did. She enjoyed roller skating as a child and took up ice skating as an adult. "I also find that when I exercise, I eat healthier," she says. "When I get back to the office, if I see cookies, I think I just skated an hour.' I might eat a cookie, but I won't eat as many as I would have. I'd say I cut my sweets in take in half when I'm exercising. Tarek Hamade, general manager of LAFitness in Royal Oak, Mich., suggests that in addition to asking gyms about holiday specials and guest passes, people should check facilities'websites. LAFitness, for example, offers free, three-day guest passes online. Fitness club members with out-of-town guests should talk with club managers about deals as well, he advises. "Bottom line is we want people to work out and enjoy the facilities," Hamade says.All the food can make you balloon outBy CASSANDRA SPRATLINGDetroit Free PressTO YOUR HEALTH
