Story, 3A Higher levelTwo Coral Shores High athletes make it official and commit to playing on the college level.Story, 1B LeBaron trial winding downOn Day 6 of Jonathon LeBarons first-degree murder trial in Key West, the 12 jurors got a lesson in blood splatters.LeBaron, 36, faces a possible death sentence if convicted of beating to death Richard Gardner, 57, aboard Gardners boat Flo To Me at the Oceanside Marina on Stock Island on Feb. 10, 2009.Tuesday, LeBaron attorney Jack Blumenfeld from the South Florida Regional Office of Conflict Counsel guided expert consulting forensic scientist Stuart James through testimony focusing on the bloody interior of the boat.James started by explaining to the 12-person jury the three categories of blood stains: Passive, involving very little energy like pooling or dripping; spatter, which is more high energy involving an impact or pressure from an arterial cut; and altered, covering an array of things like clotting, wiping or insect activity.There was physical activity involving bloodshed that took place at the bottom of the stairs, James testified, pointing out spatter and transfer patterns as jurors examined a picture of Gardners bloody and beaten body with his head wedged near the bottom step of the cabin.Prosecutors, who rested their case on Monday, built their case around testimony from Kristen Whitmore, 44, who pleaded guilty to second-degree murder for her role in the slaying. Shes serving 18 years in prison.Police say Gardner had allowed Whitmore to stay on his boat and that she led LeBaron to the vessel to lay in wait and rob Gardner. Instead, LeBaron allegedly beat Gardner to death and stole his car. The couple was arrested in Midvale, Utah, 12 days after the killing based on an anonymous tip to police.Whitmore previously told police that when she got to the bottom of the stairs, the flashlight suddenly went out and she felt a weight on her as Mr. Gardner fell back against her. She then heard sounds of a struggle and noise she described as bones crunching. The autopsy confirmed that Mr. Gardner suffered a broken upper and lower jaw as well as having numerous teeth knocked out. Using photos to illustrate his points, James told jurors that blood found on the walls and kitchen table is likely impact spatter from a standing position, indicating an assault on someone who wasBlood-splatter expert testifies about patterns found in Gardners boatBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comIN THE COURTS LeBARON JUNIOR DEPUTIESPhoto courtesy SHERIFFS OFFICESgt.Marc Maison from the Monroe County Sheriffs Office spends some time last week talking to the children of the Grace Jones Day Care Center in Marathon about safety.He made them all honorary junior deputies and gave them badges and coloring books. FKAAbill is moving in LegislatureThe Florida House on Thursday unanimously approved a bill that would change the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority from an appointed to elected board while the Senate companion on Tuesday was referred to the Rules Committee. If approved by both chambers, the measure would go to Gov. Rick Scott for adoption. The governor is the one who makes the five board appointments. The legislative session is scheduled to end Friday. Rep. Holly Raschein (RKey Largo) is sponsoring House Bill 1321 and Sen. Dwight Bullard (D-Miami) the Senate companion.In November, Monroe voters passed a nonbinding referendum calling for an elected board by a measure of 24,366 for and 10,771 opposed.Spurring it was a November 2011 meeting when thenFKAAExecutive Director Jim Reynolds resigned abruptly. At the same session, the board named Kirk Zuelch, then FKAAattorney, as the new agency chief.Neither the Reynolds resignation nor his replacement were on the agenda and circumstances of the sudden switch were never fully detailed, helping fuel interest in an elected board.The FKAAoversees distribution of fresh water throughout the Keys, and now also handles a significant portion of sewer issues in unincorporated Monroe County.STATE LEGISLATUREKeynoter StaffVogel to be called in killers hearingMiami Cocaine Cowboys hitman Jorge Ayala, suspected of 35 drug slayings and convicted in three, wants out of prison.Ayala, whose penchant for dirty talk with secretaries dealt a damaging blow to the prosecution of Miami drug kingpin Griselda Blanco, is asking a judge to reduce his life prison term because of his substantial cooperation with law enforcement in the 1980s.And to help his clients cause, Ayalas attorney is planning to call the former Miami-Dade prosecutor on his case: Catherine Vogel now the elected Monroe County state attorney.He feels, after all these years, he deserves a chance at redemption, said attorney Jim Lewis, who filed his request last week in Miami-Dade Circuit Court. I think hes done a lot of good. He put a lot of people in jail, one of the few people who stood up to the Colombian Cartel.Ayala, 48, was a feared gunman for the cartel. Detectives believed the charismatic hitman was to blame for 35 drug-related contract murders. He pleaded guilty in 1993 to three murders and was sentenced to life with the possibility of parole after 25 years.

Water supply was definitely a challenge, said Chief Sergio Garcia of the Key Largo Volunteer FireRescue Department. The fire started at 716 Garden State Lane in the Cross Key Waterways subdivision at mile marker 103 on the bayside of U.S. 1. All the homes were unoccupied and nobody was injured, said Becky Herrin, a spokeswoman with the Monroe County Sheriffs Office. Departments from Miami-Dade County, Islamorada and Monroe County helped put out the fire. ASea Tow boat crew helped prevent the fire from spreading to boats docked in the marina by spraying canal water on the vessels and other structures, Herrin said. Islamorada Fire Chief William Wagner said firefighters had the blaze under control in about 45 minutes, but that was long enough to burn up two homes, almost destroy a third and cause heat damage to a house across the street. The nearest fire hydrant was at least 4,000 feet away too far for fire trucks to reach with their 1,000 to 1,200 feet of hose, Wagner said.Garcia said water from the hydrant may have been insufficient, anyway, since a hydrant pumps out about 500 gallons of water per minute and Sundays blazeNo cause yet determined for Sunday blazeKEY LARGO Photo courtesy SHERIFFS OFFICEOne of the houses burns on Sunday as firefighters work to extinguish the blaze.By DAVID GOODHUE and KEVIN WADLOWkwadlow@keynoter.comSee Fire,6A
Housing-tax bill might be deadWith the 2013 legislative session scheduled to conclude Friday, a proposed bill that would eliminate property taxes on military-contracted homes occupied by military members or defense workers doesnt seem a sure thing.On April 4, state Sen. John Thrasher (R-St. Augustine) proposed an amendment to Senate Bill 354 that would limit the tax exemption for homes managed for the military by private companies and occupied by service members and their families. It passed 40-0.On the House side, Keys Rep. Holly Raschein (RKey Largo) proposed a similar amendment that died in committee. House Bill 531 is sponsored by Jimmy Patronis (R-Panama City) and was not scheduled for any action on Tuesday. The issue grew out of the Keys because of an $11.5 tax lien then-Property Appraiser Karl Borglum filed in 2011 against Balfour Beatty, a British company that overseas 890 homes in Key West for the U.S. Navy. The $11.5 million would cover taxes, interest and penalties for the past four years.Filing of the lien prompted Southeast Housing LLC, a division of Balfour Beatty, to sue in Monroe County Circuit Court, looking to get Borglums claim tossed. The case before Judge David Audlin is pending.John Dent, the attorney for the Property Appraisers Office, says only 26 percent of the Key West Navy units are occupied by active-duty naval personnel and their families.That doesnt mean other members of other branches of the military dont occupy the units, he says.Southeast attorney David Paul Horan wasnt available Tuesday but has said that fewer than 20 units are occupied by civilians with no military affiliation.Dent said his calculations are based on a review of annual rent rolls, something he said was made available to him in confidence.Right now, [Southeasts] argument is we have this wonderful facility providing housing for Navy people. Well, this is how many, he said.The issue in Monroe is not unique. In Santa Rosa County (Pensacola), Property Appraiser Gregory Brown agreed to a 2008 settlement with Southeast limiting the exemption to houses occupied by military personnel not houses rented to civilians on Naval Air Station Whiting Field. Last year, Southeast paid Santa Rosa $52,000 in lieu of taxes on civilian units.No one could say what the difference is between the homes being taxed and a payment in lieu of taxes. Dent said the Santa Rosa deal cant set a precedent. In my considered legal opinion, I think the agreement is against public policy. Dent said exemption is defined by statute and applies to governmentowned facilities, designated charitable organizations and in other specific instances. Weve argued in our case that Southeast is none of those, Dent said. Acity or a property appraiser cannot compromise the application of ad valorem taxes. Its either taxable or not taxable.This is from the agreement between Santa Rosa County and Southeast: The property appraiser and the owner have agreed that this military housing is entitled to exemption from ad valorem taxation to the extent that the housing is occupied by active-duty or retired military personnel or their families ... and have agreed that any such housing units occupied by other than permissible tenants would be included in the payment in lieu of taxes. Asked to explain the advantage of the Santa Rosa agreement tantamount to but not called taxes Balfour Beatty spokeswoman Kathy Grim said Tuesday she was working on a response. The 890 military houses in Key West are at Peary Court, Sigsbee Park, Truman Annex, Trumbo Point and the Branch Medical Clinic on South Roosevelt Boulevard.No movement on state Senate sideBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com KeysNet.com Keynoter 2A Wednesday,May 1,2013 PREDICTED TEMPERATURESDA Y HIGH L O W WED.8675 THURS.8675 FRI.8674 SAT.8775 Forecast: Expect cloudy skies with a chance of showers and thunderstorms.

Officials still hopeful for sewer moneyThe Florida Legislatures session that winds to a close Friday should end with few surprises for Monroe County, said county Mayor George Neugent.After a trip to Tallahassee this week, County Administrator Roman Gastesi and Neugent said talks with Gov. Rick Scotts staff indicate the flow of money to construct central sewers Monroe County could resume in 2014.We had an extremely positive meeting with the governors chief of staff, Adam Hollingsworth, Neugent said Tuesday. Were starting work right now on getting some things in place so [funding] will be in the budget next year.Apush to receive $50 million in state funding for Monroe Countys wastewater expenses part of $200 million promised by the state to complete the Keyswide sewage network failed in the current budget because the state hit its debt limit for bonding.Marathon and the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District would have gotten the lions share of the $50 million.There were some big bonds that came due this year that wont be there next year, Gastesi said. Its moving forward with a positive buzz.It wasnt in the cards this year, Neugent said. It doesnt always happen the way we want it to happen, but weve been dealing with this for a long time. The state has mandated that the Keys as a whole have central sewers operating by December 2015. Well continue fighting the battle and I remain optimistic that the money will be in the budget next year, Neugent said. Indications are the economy is improving, which is a precursor of good things happening next year and in coming years. Neugent and Gastesi headed to the Capitol for an emergency session of the Florida Gulf Consortium, which is taking the states lead on administration of funds from BPDeepwater Horizon settlements. Anew proposal from a top legislator sought to create a new agency to handle RESTORE money in a way that could reduce the amount allocated to Gulf of Mexico counties, including Monroe, that lie outside the Panhandle counties most directly affected by the 2010 oil spill. Neugent said he expects the final outcome will uphold the allocation plan originally forwarded by the 23-county Gulf Consortium. Weve known all along that with that much money on the table, there will efforts by other counties to secure some money for themselves, Neugent said. In other legislative issues, Gastesi said that law changes will allow residents of unincorporated Monroe who installed their own sewer treatment systems after July 1, 2010, to keep using them until they reach the systems reach of the end of their normal life cycle. Thats likely just a handful of residents.Theyre already lobbying for 2014 fundingSTATE LEGISLATUREGrosso: Were now protector of islandsNearly four decades since Florida legislators moved to protect the Florida Keys environment from local governments neglect, the roles have largely reversed, says law professor Richard Grosso.Now Monroe County officials seem to stand as a safeguard against a Florida Legislature intent on repealing a host of state environmental regulations, said Grosso, director of environmental and land-use law at Nova Southeastern University and former director of the Everglades Law Center.The single biggest problem now is that under the guise of jump-starting the economy, the state has pulled back from oversight of growth management almost completely, Grosso said earlier this month. The Legislature has watered down a lot of rules that protect water quality and lands needed to allow the natural Everglades system to survive, he said. When the economy picks back up, its going to be open season on the very lands that have been targeted for restoration, Grosso said. Thats a problem for the folks in Monroe County since theyre at the mercy of development in Southwest Miami-Dade and the rest of the state. It all affects water quality as it flows down into Florida Bay. In 1974, the Florida Legislature created the Area of Critical State Concern designation for Monroe County, allowing the state to oversee local land-use decisions. At the time, officials and legislators feared local government showed little interest in protecting the Keys from a development boom that threatened unique waters, wetlands and hardwood hammocks. Monroe County was forced to create and enforce its comprehensive land-use plan, which resulted in other growth limits. In 1985, the Legislature created the Growth Management Act covering all of the state. The rules for the Keys were unlike anywhere else but it was appropriate because the Keys are unlike anywhere else, Grosso said.The Area of Critical State Concern designation remains in effect but a sharply reduced staff of state planners charged with following Keys development now works for an agency called the Department of Economic Opportunity. Right now, Monroe County has a [County] Commission that has a lot of integrity and experience, and a very talented staff that I respect a lot, Grosso said. I dont know that Ive ever seen a better combination of elected and staff leadership there.He noted, Planning challenges in the Keys are always going to be great. The state cannot allow good planning efforts in the Keys to be overrun by what happens farther up the state. Grosso stepped away from the Everglades Law Center to focus on teaching and spending more time with his family.His wife, Key West native Shannon Estenoz, now has her hands full as director of the U.S. Department of the Interiors Office of Everglades Restoration Initiatives.Im still part of the environmental community and engaged in Everglades and Keys things, Grosso said, but Im playing a different position. One his primary concerns is responding to climate change and sea-level rise. The Keys are at the cutting edge of issues related to sea-level rise. Its one of the most vulnerable places in the world, Grosso said. Its a race against time, and were entering uncharted territory in law and policy.Legislature is weakening protectionsGROWTH MANAGEMENTBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com GROSSO Portertrying to hone long-term planKeys schools Superintendent Mark Porter, having recently wrapped up two meetings of his 45-person strategic planning committee, now is working to define broad goals recommended in those sessions. But dont look for a final report to guide the Monroe County School District anytime soon: Porter says that will come in 15 months two years after he started work on it.School Board member John Dick has been critical of the process, essentially the touchstone of Porters tenure, since it began in November.I think the direction is pretty obvious, he said. Now we have a vision to do the same thing that every district in the state and country should be aspiring to do. Its not a matter of reinventing the wheel. With the initial meetings done, Porter said hes working to appoint six action groups, likely in June, drawn from the larger committee. Those groups will be charged with coming up with specific steps that would allow the school system to meet the broad goals.The six goals defined by the committee in meetings April 22 and 27 are student achievement, communication and community engagement, human workforce, technology, resource management, and culture and climate.What Im doing is trying to reshape those a little bit to bring more common language and approach, Porter said. Then were going to hand them off to individuals to lead action planning teams.He specified, for example, climate and culture as making sure at the school level, were truly promoting learning for students. Theres probably an external aspect of that, as well, a more positive climate and culture with regard to our community.The 45-person committee, appointed by Porter, includes the five-member School Board; four parents; 15 community members; and 21 district employees, including principals, teachers and United Teachers of Monroe President Holly Hummell-Gorman. Porter said he received about 60 applications but, trying to achieve balance among the Lower, Middle and Upper Keys, screened out some candidates based on where they live.Prior to establishing a committee, Porter conducted seven community engagement sessions designed to survey Monroe County residents on issues such as School Board performance, teacher performance and quality of schools.That data was given to the committee members but as raw data, lacking summary and analysis. What the hell was the whole point? asked Big Pine Key resident Larry Murray, a former School Board candidate who took part in the engagement sessions and unsuccessfully applied for a slot on the strategic planning committee. This whole thing is a huge fraud. Its not even a good public relations campaign because its been executed so poorly. He speculated that any decisions made going forth would be sold as having community support. Its not the community. This is just [School District] staff.School Board Chairman Andy Griffiths doesnt agree.Teachers are parents and taxpayers, too, he said. Its going to be hard to get people that are not part of the school system involved because they dont have a direct stake.Third phase starts in JuneBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS MILITARY

Budget vote takes place ThursdayThe largest budget in state history landed on the desks of Florida lawmakers Monday, brimming with a 6 percent spending increase that includes a tuition hike for university students, pay raises for teachers and state employees and hundreds of millions in new hometown spending.Lawmakers must wait until Thursday afternoon before they can vote on the $74.5 billion budget, which represents a $4.5 billion increase from last year. The extra money, a possible indication the states economy is on the mend, bought peace in the state Capitol as lawmakers from both parties stuffed the spending plan with pet projects.Negotiations wrapped with a day to spare, an unheard of feat in more austere times. Lawmakers received the budget at 1:37 p.m. Monday.Its a great win for the governor, its a great win for the Senate and for the House, said Florida House Speaker Will Weatherford (R-Wesley Chapel). And most importantly its a win for teachers and students to have a billion dollars going to education.Theres still a strong possibility that Gov. Rick Scott will veto some cherished proposals. Chief among them could be a 3 percent tuition hike. The increase would raise $18 million for the states 12 universities and cost students an extra $6 per credit hour. Last year, Scott vetoed a bill that would have allowed the University of Florida and Florida State University the freedom to raise tuition. In 2007, then-Gov. Charlie Crist vetoed a 5 percent tuition increase. I dont believe in tuition increases, Scott said Monday before adding a caveat. Clearly, Ill look at the language. Florida lawmakers pumped more than $1 billion dollars into the K-12 education budget. That includes an increase of about $404 in per-pupil funding, up 6.3 percent over last year. The budget also contains $480 million for pay raises for school employees. The salary increases will be available for teachers, guidance counselors, principals and other instructional personnel who are deemed effective or highly effective by their school districts. School systems will have the freedom to develop their own plans for evaluating teacher performance, so long as the formulas are based on student achievement. The state Board of Education will have to approve each plan.Its a departure from the governors budget, which called for across-the-board pay raises for classroom teachers. Still, Scott praised the language in the Legislatures proposed budget.All of our teachers have the opportunity for a pay raise, Scott said. Theres going to be flexibility with the school districts to do the right thing. But Florida Education Association President Andy Ford said the union is disappointed that House and Senate leaders were tying the raises to untested methods of evaluating teachers, and that the raises wouldnt kick in before June 2014. Lawmakers included more than $200 million for raises for about 160,000 state and university employees, their first general pay increase in seven years. Workers making below $40,000 would get a $1,400 pay raise, while those making more than $40,000 would get a $1,000 raise. About 35 percent of state employees would have a chance to earn up to another $600 bonus if given positive evaluations. Scott said hell inspect the larded-up budget closely. The multitude of pet projects was caused by a lot of pent-up demand from lawmakers eager to bring home state dollars for the first time in years, said Sen. Tom Lee (R-Brandon). He said there was too much money put into local projects and that Scott could easily reach $200 million in vetoes. Money was spread throughout the state on projects big and small, from fixing drainage pipes and roads to cleaning rivers and lakes to providing 10,000 rapetesting kits to local law enforcement. The budget completed by lawmakers is a boon for an as-yet unnamed public relations firm: The Legislature budgeted $1 million for a marketing campaign to educate motorists about the anticipated ban on texting while driving.

Ayalas next chance: A 2019 hearing.He is best known for his role working for Blanco, a savage Miami drug kingpin of the 1970s and s known as the Godmother. She spent nearly two decades behind bars before her 2004 deportation to Colombia. She was gunned down in Medellin in September.Thanks to Ayala, Blanco wound up being convicted of three murders, though she was believed to be behind more than 40. Ayala later detailed the slayings in the 2006 documentary Cocaine Cowboys.Ayala told police that Blanco ordered him to kill drug dealers Alfredo and Grizel Lorenzo, who had failed to pay for five kilos of cocaine. They were shot to death in their South Miami home as their three children watched television in another room in 1982.Ayala also was a shooter targeting Jesus Chucho Castro, a former cartel enforcer whom Blanco had marked for death. He survived a barrage of bullets as he drove in South MiamiDade in 1982 but his 2year-old son, Johnny Castro, was slain.Investigators caught up with Blanco in 1985 in a New York cocaine trafficking case. She ultimately served 13 years in federal custody before she was handed over to Florida authorities.She seemed bound for Floridas Death Row until Ayala, the states star witness, ran into trouble behind bars.In 1998, investigators discovered that Ayala had engaged in phone sex with secretaries from the MiamiDade State Attorneys Office. The probe revealed the secretaries had exchanged photographs with Ayala and accepted money and gifts.One secretary claimed she was under orders from Vogel, the Miami-Dade prosecutor, to flirt with Ayala and keep him happy. Vogel always denied the claim. After an investigation, three secretaries were fired and Michael Band, a veteran prosecutor, resigned. One of the secretaries later sued the Miami-Dade State Attorneys Office for wrongful termination and was awarded $155,000. With the case against Blanco weakened, special prosecutors from Orlando took over. Blanco cut a plea deal in 1998, and agreed to a 20-year term, of which she only served about seven years. Ayalas case is before Circuit Court Judge Migna Sanchez-Llorens. An evidentiary hearing will likely be scheduled in the next several months. If released, Ayala would be deported to Colombia.Vogel: I didnt give ordersFrom Hearing,1A D Wenski launches citizenship driveMiami Archbishop Thomas Wenski on Monday launched a major drive to persuade thousands of legal permanent residents in South Florida to become U.S. citizens.The citizenship campaign targets those who are eligible to apply for naturalization but who have shied away from submitting an applications because of fear of the process or because they cant afford the $680 filing cost. Right now, there are over 300,000 people living here in South Florida that are eligible to become citizens, yet they have not put in an application to do so, Wenski said at a news conference at the Archdiocese of Miami office in Miami Shores. Wenski said the campaign includes public service radio and television ads and a oneday workshop on June 22 at the Wolfson Campus of Miami Dade College, where 200 volunteer attorneys will help immigrants fill out applications for free. The event is scheduled to run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wenski appealed to legal permanent residents to take advantage of the event to file their papers and begin the process of becoming naturalized citizens. Randolph McGrorty, executive director of the Archdioceses Catholic Legal Services office, said the aim is to file at least 1,000 applications from eligible legal immigrants. It will be free. We will not charge. People will have the benefit of an attorney one on one, McGrorty said. But they may have to pay the required federal processing fees unless they qualify for a waiver. McGrorty noted that the target of 1,000 applicants in one day might seem large, but it is really a drop in the water compared to the hundreds of thousands in Florida alone who are eligible for citizenship. Statistics from the Department of Homeland Security show that 757,434 immigrants became U.S. citizens via naturalization last year, and of those, 100,890 were in Florida. California had the largest number of naturalized citizens at 158,850, and New York came in third at 93,584. There are an estimated 8.5 million legal permanent residents who are eligible for citizenship, according to a July 2012 Office of Immigration Statistics report. U.S. Rep. Joe Garcia, a Democrat who represents the Keys, and Rep. Frederica Wilson, also a Democrat, were on hand at the news conference. They said their job will be to push for the enactment of immigration reform in Washington, D.C.Wilson said she knew of many permanent residents who had no idea how to begin the naturalization process. Some of the eligible immigrants, she added, had fallen prey to scammers who ask for money to help them through the process, only to disappear once payment is made.I meet people every day who dont know where to go and what to do and I am so proud that my office is fully staffed to help those who find themselves in that position, Wilson said. Garcia urged eligible immigrants not to be intimidated by the $680 fee because there are instances when the cost can be waived.June 22 set for free processingBy ALPHONCE SHIUNDUashiundi@MiamiHerald.comIMMIGRATIONBEFORE AND AFTER

Afire chief elected by the firefighters would be a conflict of interest. This would lead to the fire chief having absolute power. And you know what happens when someone has absolute power. I have also served as a Monroe County commissioner and cannot imagine if the county administrator was appointed by the employees I dont think the situation would work to say the least. The Key Largo Fire-Rescue Departments fire chief (manager) has to be subordinate to the Key Largo Fire-Rescue and Emergency Medical Services District board in order to have a workable and responsible fire department. There is something called the chain of command. Firefighters are responsible to their officers, the officers are responsible to an appointed fire chief, and the fire chief is responsible to elected officials. The elected officials are responsible to the citizens of the community. The Key Largo Fire-Rescue Department has done a good job, but in order to do a good job in the future, the department must be responsible to and subordinate to the district board. As for the assets of the Key Largo Fire-Rescue Department, it would be wrong for the department to hold property or equipment hostage to get their way in regard to managing the department. The property and equipment held in the name of the Key Largo Fire-Rescue Department belongs to the community. It would be the height audacity for the department board or fire chief to sue the district over these assets. These assets should be transferred free of charge to whatever entity the district board contracts with to provide fire service. Glenn Patton Key LargoNatures our heritageEarth Day was a good day to go to the beach and celebrate our good luck that its oil free. Just three years ago, we were eyeing our beaches with a sense of dread. On April 20, 2010, an explosion rocked an oil rig off the coast of Texas, killing 11 people. The rig, Deepwater Horizon, sank, and for 87 days the Macondo well was gushing crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico 206 million gallons before it was capped. It was a disaster of historic proportions, devastating Louisianas shoreline and beaches in Texas, Mississippi, Alabama and Floridas Panhandle. Gulf fisheries, shrimp and oyster beds were wiped out.But South Florida and the Keys caught a lucky break. Neither a shift of wind nor current pushed oil into Florida Bay or onto Southeast Florida beaches.The disaster lingers, however.Even Congress figured out that we need to know and do more to protect coastal resources. It passed the RESTORE Act, dedicating 80 percent of the fines and penalties incurred by BP and other parties judged responsible for the disaster to be used to restore the regions ecosystems. The law leaves it to a restoration council to solicit and evaluate research proposals and projects.Two proposed Florida projects are of particular interest in South Florida: The Caloosahatchee River reservoir and an additional Tamiami Trail bridge.The cross-state Tamiami Trail (U.S. 41) highway has long acted as a dam, interrupting and blocking the once-natural flow of water south. The proposed bridge alleviates that bottleneck, allowing more fresh water to get to the coastal mangroves and estuaries of Everglades National Parks 10,000 Islands.The Caloosahatchee River links Lake Okeechobee to the Gulf of Mexico at Fort Myers. The proposed reservoir, a component of the 2000 Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan, would store fresh water during the rainy season, reducing the destructive gluts of water discharged into the river from the lake to protect the integrity of the Herbert Hoover Dike.During the dry season when the lake is low, the reservoir would provide fresh water to the river that is needed to prevent salt water from continuing to intrude so far upriver that it forces a Lee County drinking-water treatment plant to shutdown. Yes, three years ago we were lucky. As we celebrate that good luck, lets also demonstrate that were now smarter than we were and willing to work together to protect and to restore our natural heritage. Martha Musgrove Volunteer regional director Florida Wildlife Federation West Palm BeachEcological collapse nearsEighty-five years ago, the Tamiami Trail opened to much fanfare. Showgirls on horses, civic boosters in hats and hundreds of Model Ts paraded down the two-lane road that promised untold riches. Miami businessman Frank Jaudon, the so-called father of the Tamiami Trail, ran full-page newspaper ads offering to turn wetlands south of the road into oil fields, sugar plantations and subdivisions. People were in high spirits on April 26, 1928. Within 18 months, Jaudons fanciful dreams would sink into the sawgrass. The Great Depression had begun.The Tamiami Trail has cut off the main source of fresh water for the southern Everglades for almost a century. The devastation brought to the land, water and wildlife of Everglades National Park and Florida Bay is immense. But scientists say its about to get infinitely worse.Climate change and sea-level rise present an existential threat to the Everglades and our drinking water. Experts say the only way to fight saltwater is with fresh water. And the only way to do that is by elevating the Tamiami Trail. Two weeks ago, traffic was rerouted onto the first of what will be a series of bridges to restore water flow across the Tamiami Trail. In March, former Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar cut the ribbon on a one-mile bridge. Now the National Park Service is planning for the next two-and-a-half-mile span, part of a total of 6.5 miles of bridging. This Everglades skyway is the centerpiece of restoration. Without it, our water supply and the Everglades will vanish. Few foresaw economic collapse in the frenzy of the Roaring s, but we can clearly see an ecological collapse on the horizon. Its up to us to decide whether we want to change the future. Jonathan Ullman Sierra Club, MiamiGetting rid of athleticsgoverning body would create unfair playing field and cause anarchy with rulesPlayground fight or grudge match? Both terms have been applied to legislation that would gut the Florida High School Athletic Associations ability to ensure fair play in prep athletics. Last week, lawmakers approved a bill that would restrict investigations by the FHSAAand expand the ability of student athletes to transfer schools during the school year. It sets a 2017 date to sunset the governing body for Florida high school athletics. State Rep. Elizabeth Porter (R-Lake City) authored the bill in the House. State Sen. Kelli Stargel (RLakeland) introduced a similar bill in the Senate. Both come from Lakeland County, where the FHSAAhad sanctioned Lakeland High School for rules infractions after an investigation found student athletes falsified home addresses to enroll and, in some cases, even received free rent to play at Lakeland High. The bills opponents say that animus stems from a playground fight in Lakeland that now looms as a dire threat to the existence of the body that has governed Florida high school athletics for 93 years. This is an awful, awful bill, said Rep. Kevin Rader (D-Delray Beach). Its important we have a good athletic association. To turn it upside down and make it a free agency is something that is disgusting.Tony Hammon, superintendent and coach at Island Christian School in Islamorada, had even harsher words, telling the Keynoter s Kevin Wadlow that the Florida Legislature should be banned from making any law on education. They never make it better, only worse.Athletic directors in the Keys predict the move to gut the FHSAAwill mean free agency in high school athletics. We already know how badly that plays out in the college game, given the recent spate of recruiting scandals at big-name universities. As written, the legislation takes away most of the associations rule-making powers, transferring that to school boards in all 67 counties. So instead of having one statewide governing body that levels the playing field, we could end up of with a mish-mash of rules that invite outright recruiting of student athletes. Theresa Konrath, athletic director at Marathon High School, told the Keynoter the prospect of 67 different districts setting their own eligibility standards could lead to frequent transfers by athletes, creating free agency at its highest level. Basically, our kids would get the bad end of the stick. At this stage with the Legislature winding up business on Friday the best way to end this madness is to contact the governors office and asking him to veto the legislation should it make it out of conference committee and to his desk.

LETTERS TO THE EDITORLet the kids playThe American Heart Association is supporting House Bill 525 and Senate Bill 392, which limit liability for schools that voluntarily open their playgrounds and facilities to community groups and individuals during non-school hours. HB 525 passed the Florida House. However, the plaintiffsattorneys are protecting their own interests, not those of Floridas children or schools and are blocking action on the Senate bill. Americansdecreasing physical health costs more than $147 billion a year in additional treatment, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Politicians talk about maximizing tax dollars, and expanding playground use does just that. The principals responsible for educating our children are also capable of ensuring that school grounds are well maintained. Under these bills, the school districts interests will be protected, and so will our children.

Miami Herald photo by CHUCK FADLEYThe one-mile Tamiami Trail bridge in the Everglades,which will allow water from the River of Grass to flow from north of the Tamiami Trail to the south, cost $81 million to build.Experts agree that more Tamiami Trail bridges are needed to further restore the waters traditional flow.Hard work is punishedI am amazed at the lack of understanding by the board of directors of Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys in the fiasco concerning the former director, Katie Bentley. I was deeply shocked to hear of the resignation of Katie Bentley from the Marathon animal shelter due to misunderstanding, petty jealousy and the self-seeking advancement by employees and volunteers.Quite frankly, I am perturbed that such a turn of events could be brought about by a group of people, collectively known as the board, that has dismissed this hard-working woman out of hand by listening to fabricated stories put about by unqualified and new people, both volunteers and employees, who, it seems, have hidden agendas and the desire to run the animal shelter in Marathon even though they do not hold the required qualifications to do so.I have seen firsthand the work that Katie Bentley has done over the years. I have seen how she has risen at 6 a.m. every morning for more than eight years to get to the shelter to check on the animals.I have seen how she has split herself into shreds, meeting the police to rescue a dog left in an empty house to die, and more. I have seen her talking to prospective adoptees, trying to persuade them to give an abandoned dog a forever home. I have seen her doing the bookkeeping late into the night. I have seen her dealing with all these issues with diligence and compassion. She is not Superwoman. She has had no backup from the board whatsoever, or any strong support from people who should have known better. It is a pitiful state of affairs that petty grievances have been listened to by the board, whose members have no idea of the true and valuable work that this woman has done over the years. They allowed Katie to be bullied into resigning her post as director, bullied into leaving the life that meant so much to her and losing contact with the animals she cared for and loved. I am really, truly sorry that this has happened for the community of Marathon, a community I hold in high regard, because in losing Katie Bentley and her dedication to the shelter and its animals, they have lost a great treasure. I think she should be reinstated. And no, I dont have a hidden agenda. Maggie Chidsey Yorkshire, EnglandBoard needs to explainI am a local businesswoman and a Keys resident for more than 20 years.When I moved to Marathon about seven years ago, Then-Marathon animal shelter Director Katie Bentley was one of the first locals I met. I was always amazed at her dedication and commitment to the animals at the shelter. Her passion and her life was all about the shelter and the animals who were abused or did not have loving homes. When the issues surfaced with the old shelter, I, along with the community, was totally behind Katie to develop the new organization. My husband created the original artwork for the Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys logo.It is so difficult for me and many others to understand why she was forced to resign from the position of director without any investigation into the accusations against her and without the city of Marathon and Monroe County being notified of this situation.I remember when SHARK was being formed and the county was looking at the contracts that were presented. It was important to the county to have someone receive the contract who had a lot of experience to operate the shelter. I dont understand why it does not matter now.We have many folks in the Marathon community as well as many out-of-state people who have adopted from Katie who cannot believe this has happened to the shelter or to Katie. I ask for answers from the board of directors of SHARK who have made this decision. The most important word in SHARK is safe, and we believe animals surrendered to the shelter when Katie was director were safe. Katie was doing what she does best, managing and caring for our animals in the shelter.Debra Bradshaw Marathon As written,the legislation takes away most of the associationsrule-making powers,transferring that to school boards in all 67 counties.

The study also shows that while women continue to lag men in leadership roles, trends are pointing in a positive direction, with women being more equally represented or surpassing men in various high-skill, specialized positions. While employers have made strides in equalizing compensation for both genders, historical gaps are still present in some organizations today, said Rosemary Haefner, vice president of human resources at CareerBuilder. Also contributing to the disparity in income levels is a higher representation of men working in more lucrative occupations. Fortunately, were starting to see that balance out as women account for a larger percentage of the overall workforce and pursue employment in highpaying areas such as information technology, engineering, healthcare, sales, etc.In a separate CareerBuilder and Harris Interactive study (survey of 1,746 men and 1,475 women employed full-time, completed in March), male workers were more likely to report pursuing loftier titles. Looking at occupations with the highest average compensation rate, women dominated in only four of the top 15 positions, according to the CareerBuilder and EMSI study, which was created using federal and state labor records. Among them:Oral and maxillofacial Surgeon: $194,085, 43 percent% men, 57 percent women.Orthodontist: $191,776, 43 percent men, 57 percent women.Physician and surgeon: $187,533, 55 percent men, 45 percent women.Dentist, general: $148,096, 51 percent men, 49 percent women.Petroleum engineer: $122,242, 97 percent men, 3 percent women.Engineering manager: $121,888, 97 percent men, 3 percent women.PRNewswireTHE WORKFORCESmart phones overtake dumbonesResearch firm IDC said more smart phones than dumb phones are being made this year, a milestone in a shift thats putting computing power and Internet access in millions of hands worldwide.Manufacturers shipped 216 million smart phones worldwide in the first three months of this year, compared with 189 million regular cell phones, according to a study IDC released late Thursday. IDC said smart phones made up 51.6 percent of the 419 million mobile phones shipped. In the U.S., smart phones overtook regular cell phones in 2011. IDC analyst Ramon Llamas said Friday that the shift to a global majority of smart phones is now being driven by consumers in developing countries such as China, India and Indonesia. Another firm, ABI Research, found that smart phones made up 49 percent of shipments in the first quarter. Samsung Electronics Co., the worlds largest phone maker, doesnt provide a breakdown of its phone shipments, and analysts vary in their estimates. Even going by ABIs numbers, its clear that smart phones will solidly overtake the market this year. The shift from phones primarily designed for calls, and perhaps texting, to ones with advanced operating systems and touch screens has roiled the cell-phone industry. Finlands Nokia Corp. was for many years the worlds largest maker of cell phones, but it has failed to translate that into success in smart phones. Its now the secondlargest maker of phones overall, behind Samsung Electronics Co., but it falls far down the list of smartphone makers. Cell-phone pioneer Motorola Mobility, a U.S. company now owned by Google, has stumbled through the transition as well, while Apple Inc. has become the worlds third-largest maker of cell phones, less than six years after launching the first iPhone.

Groups oppose Internet privacy lawAnewspaper is reporting that technology firms, banks and other companies are fighting a proposed California Internet privacy law that would require companies to show consumers the personal data theyve collected on them and how its being used. The Right to Know Act, or AB 1291, is being opposed by 15 companies and trade groups, the San Jose Mercury News reported. The bill would require companies to not only show consumers the information theyve collected, but also who is using it. The information would have to be provided for free. The newspaper reported that in a recent letter by the companies and trade groups including TechAmerica, which represents Google, Facebook, Microsoft and other technology companies the companies and groups are demanding that the measures author, California Assemblywoman Bonnie Lowenthal, drop the bill. Tech companies say the bill would open up their businesses to an avalanche of requests from individuals and to lawsuits, and that a 2005 California privacy law already allows consumers to find out what personal information companies are using. But supporters of the bill argue it would give consumers more information about the kind of data businesses are compiling on them, and whether they should opt out of sharing that information. Our companies are active proponents of ensuring that consumersprivacy is safeguarded, said Robert Callahan, the director of California government affairs for TechAmerica. It is a fundamental part of their business model. Facebook declined comment. Google didnt respond to a request for comment.Associated PressTECHNOLOGY

Senate pumps up volumePump up the jam theres nothing anyone can do.In a surprising tie vote, the state Senate on Friday killed a bill that would have re-enacted a state ban on loud music in cars, with some opponents worried about the long arm of the law and some just wanting to rock.The state used to have a statewide noise law that said people couldnt turn their stereo up too loud or theyd get a ticket. But that law exempted political and commercial noise, with the idea being that those types of speech couldnt be regulated. But the differing rules for different types of loud noise actually ended up getting the old law tossed by the courts, which said it unfairly singled out certain types of loud noise for regulation. So the bill to re-enact the loud stereo law (SB 634) filed this year didnt differentiate, simply banning any loud sounds coming out of a car that could be heard plainly at 25 feet away or more.The bill wasnt expected to be terribly controversial. But it died in a rare 19-19 tie vote on the Senate floor. The debate had, perhaps predictably, a decidedly generational feel, with older members of the Legislature arguing that loud car music is annoying and likely even dangerous. Younger members argued, essentially, lighten up and relax. You may not hear ambulances coming in your car, said the bills sponsor, Sen. Wilton Simpson (R-Trilby). He also said senior citizens dont like to hear other peoples music when they sit on their porch. I believe in the healing power of music and if I want to drive down the street and heal everybody around me, I should be able to, argued Sen. Jeff Clemens (D-Lake Worth), who also happens to be in a rock band. Not all those who opposed the bill were below the Senates median age. Sen. Nancy Detert (RVenice) said she doesnt particularly like loud music coming from other cars. But, she said, its really not that big of a deal.We all look at them and go, What a jerk, said Detert. And then we drive on.And its not like the people at the cars in the next lane at a red light are invading our space as they would be if they were playing loud music at a concert in the neighborhood, she said. Were not living with these people, were only spending about five seconds with them, said Detert, saying she doesnt like the government trying to regulate so many annoyances. Government over-reach clearly troubled the Libertarian wing of the Senate. In debate on the bill, Sen. John Legg, (R-Lutz) paraphrased the philosopher Ice T, referring to the rapper. We have freedom of speech, just watch how loud you say it.How?

Drafting the water using the trucks provides more power up to 1,000 gallons a minute because the vehicles have to pull right up to the water. The turbo drafts provide about as much power as fire hydrants, Garcia said. Using pumper trucks alone would not be enough, either, since they carry only up to 1,000 gallons and spray between 250 and 300 gallons per minute. These trucks were instead used to spray houses surrounding the original fire to keep it from spreading, Wagner said. The extent of the damaged area complicates the search for the cause of the fire, said Monroe County Fire Chief Jim Callahan. There was a lot of burn area and collapse, so were having some heavy equipment moved to remove the debris, Callahan said. Once we do that, well be able to get in and make a better determination of where it started and what ignited it.No cause determinedFrom Fire,1A already bleeding.

Panskyys personal-best time of 45.44 seconds was just behind winner Adanaca Brown of Upper Room Christian (43.37) and Coral Springs Charters Delise Williams, who was second in 44.95. Brown also won the state title in 2012, when Panskyy who is bound for Princeton University finished seventh. Only one other Keys athlete went to Jacksonville Key West High junior Erik Vinson, who was 11th in the pole vault at the 2Ameet Saturday. An athlete had to finish in the top eight to win a medal. Vinson vaulted 12 feet, 6 inches, 6 inches off his personal best of 13 feet, which he equaled this season. Vinson and his coach, Dave Perkins, had been aiming for 14 feet. Tampa Jesuits Nick Catchur won the event by clearing the bar at 14-6. We were pretty confident he would place higher, Perkins said of Vinson. But when it got to 13 feet, he had technical issues that he wasnt able to overcome. Vinson was back at the schools Back Yard vaulting pit Monday, pointing toward next season.

Santiesteban began swimming competitively at age 6 under coach Jon Olsen, an Olympic gold medalist and Hurricane coach. I couldnt be more proud of Luis, Olsen said. His commitment and sacrifice have paid off in a big way. Santiesteban also competed for the Florida Gold Coast squad and raced in the Junior Olympics. He was accepted at four colleges, including Florida Atlantic University and the University of Tampa.He found the perfect balance at Hartwick College, said his mother, Jillian. It offered his intended major and he made a strong connection with the swim coaches there.Hartwick extended an academic scholarship to Santiesteban. Im very excited about college and my future, he said. Im grateful to all the people that helped me get to this point, especially my sister and my parents for always believing in me. At 6-foot-9, Ismer was a Coral Shores standout in football, basketball and track. He will attend Pearl River (Miss.) Community College to play football. Williams best football is in front of him, said Cane head coach Ed Holly. He has rare size and athletic gifts. He has a chance to be very special. Ismer played defensive end, tight end and tackle for the Canes. He also was Coral Shoresleading scorer and rebounder on the basketball court, and reached the state regionals in the shot put. Ismer said he picked Pearl River to allow me to grow academically as well as athletically. Parents Renee and Bill Ismer said the Coral Shores staff and community played a large role in helping Ismer advance to the college ranks as a player and student.CORAL SHORES Will Ismer (front center) is surrounded by family and school staff as he signs his letter to attend Pearl River Community College.

The students are participating in the Experiment in International Living crosscultural experience. Twenty of the students are in the Take Stock in Children mentoring and scholarship program. All of the 35 students will leave the U.S. in small groups at the end of June, joining about 1,000 other U.S. high school students in the annual program of cultural orientation through local immersion. International Living experiences involve three to five weeks of language learning, individual home-stays and community involvement in 20 different countries. Students are now beginning preparations to study abroad in their assigned country. The breakdown:Marathon High School: Samantha Bonilla, Costa Rica; Zoe Caldwell, Navajo Nation; Dominick Desrosiers, Mexico; Carlos OFarrill, Spain; Stephanie Reyes, France.Coral Shores High School: Rebecca Davis, South Africa; Tristan Garcia, France; Maria Lozada, Italy; Iyamilet Vargas, Spain.Key West Collegiate: Chynna Eckard, Costa Rica.Key West High School: Shayne Alongi, Chile; Ramon Arza-Sosa, China; Mercedes Cosby, Korea; Araley Cruz, France; Anthony GarciaMontero, Spain; Torrin Jacobsen, Mongolia; Maximilian Mealor, Peru; Daniel Quinlan, Japan; Laura Urbay, France; Jack Willis, Argentina.I believe strongly in the effectiveness of interactive learning, said Monroe County Education Foundation President John Padget. The foundation partners with the Vermont-based Experiment in International Living.The EILprogram offers one of the best frameworks for responsible development of young minds and hearts. Students see from new perspectives, respond to unfamiliar challenges and solve problems with initiative and good judgment. Its lifelearning that tests their assumptions and broadens the mind, Padget said. Since the program started in the Keys in 2006, 104 Monroe County students have gone through it. This years group will raise that number to 139. KeysNet.com Keynoter 2B Wednesday,May 1,2013 Living French toast with chocolate? You betTime for a confession. As a child, I never once celebrated Mothers Day, which is on May 10. My parents thought the holiday was nothing more than a cheesy excuse to sell greeting cards, and who was I to argue?But after I became a mother myself? Oh. My. God. Id spent years working 80 hours a week as a restaurant chef, and that was nothing compared to the amount of work required of the mother of a newborn. I buckled down and got the job done, but not without help. And not before establishing that in our house, wed most certainly be celebrating Mothers Day. And not just once a year, but once a week. Every Sunday.At my insistence, the Husband did just as much diaper-changing, babybathing and bottle-feeding as yours truly. I also charged him with preparing and serving me breakfast in bed on Sunday mornings. Of course, hes not really a cook, not even much of a home cook, so I reassured him that the meal didnt have to be fancy. All I needed was a cup of hot coffee and something on a plate or in a bowl that I could eat at my leisure. In the years since, I came up with a dish that incorporates two of daughter Ruthies favorite things, French toast and chocolate. And I added one of mine, raspberries. Not only did my little chocoholic love the taste of our French toast, she also loved to make it. The following recipe is perfect for breakfast in bed for mom on Mothers Day. Complement the finished French toast with some freshly squeezed orange juice and a pot of freshly brewed coffee, and youre off to the races. What youll need:One pint (two cups) fresh raspberries, plus extra to garnish.Quarter cup sugar, divided.Two large eggs.Two large egg whites.One cup of 1 percent milk.One and a half teaspoons vanilla extract.Pinch of table salt.Eight slices wholewheat bread, lightly toasted.Three ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped Heat the oven to 350 degrees. In a blender or food processor, combine the raspberries with 2.5 tablespoons of the sugar. Puree, then pour through a mesh strainer. Discard the seeds and set aside the sauce. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and egg whites. Add the milk, vanilla, salt and remaining 1.5 tablespoons of sugar. Whisk until well combined. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium. Dip two slices of the bread in the egg mixture until well soaked. Place the soaked slices in the skillet and sprinkle each with a quarter of the chocolate.Dip another two slices of bread in the egg mixture, then set them on top of the chocolate, pressing gently but firmly so the pieces adhere.Cook for three minutes, then carefully flip and cook for another three minutes. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining bread and chocolate, coating the pan with additional cooking spray. When all of the stuffed French toast has been cooked in the skillet and transferred to the baking sheet, bake in the oven for 10 minutes, or until cooked through. Cut each portion in half on the diagonal, drizzle with some of the raspberry sauce and garnish with additional raspberries. Start to finish: 45 minutes. Servings: Four.

NASAs planet-hunting telescope has discovered two planets that seem like ideal places for some sort of life to flourish. And they are just the right size and in just the right place. One is toasty, the other nippy.The distant duo are the best candidates for habitable planets that astronomers have found so far, said William Borucki, the chief scientist for NASAs Kepler telescope. And its got astronomers thinking that similar planets that are just about right for life so-called Goldilocks planets might be common in the universe.The discoveries, published online in the journal Science, mark a milestone in the search for planets where life could exist. In the four years that Kepler has been trailing Earths orbit, the telescope has found 122 exoplanets planets outside our solar system. In the past, those planets havent fit all the criteria that would make them right for life of any kind from microbes to man. Many planets arent in the habitable zone where its not too hot and not too cold for liquid water. And until now, the few found in that ideal zone, were just too big. Those are likely to be gas balls like Neptune and thats not suitable for life. Similarly, any Earth-size planets werent in the right place near their stars, Borucki said.In the Goldilocks game of looking for other planets like ours, the new discoveries, called Kepler-62-e and Kepler62-f, are just right. And they are fraternal twins. They circle the same star, an orange dwarf, and are next to each other closer together than Earth and its neighbor Mars.The planets are slightly wider than Earth, but not too big. Kepler-62-e is a bit balmy, like a Hawaiian world, and Kepler-62-f is a bit frosty, more Alaskan, Borucki said. The pair is 1,200 light years away; a light year is almost 6 trillion miles.This is the first one where Im thinking Huh, Kepler-62f really might have life on it, said study co-author David Charbonneau of Harvard. This is a very important barrier thats been crossed. Why wouldnt it have life?To make it warm enough for life the planet would need greenhouse gas trapping its stars heat because the star only gives off one-fifth the energy of our sun, but thats something that is likely to happen, Borucki said.The dozens of researchers who co-authored the study disagree on which one is better suited to life. Lisa Kaltenegger of the Max Planck Institute of Astronomy in Germany likes Kepler-62-e more because its closer to the star and is warmer. She said it is probably like Washington in May. That planet is so close it may need clouds to cool off and its more likely to be an all-water world, unlike any other in our solar system, Kaltenegger said. Astronomers cannot confirm that either planet has water, but based on other research, its a good assumption, she said.The planets circle a star that is 7 billion years old about 2.5 billion years older than our sun. Kepler spots the planets as they go between Earth and their star ever so slightly, reducing the light from the star. If theres life at all on those planets, it must be very advanced evolutionarily because the planets are so old, said Borucki.
