The Florida Keys have barely been affected by hurricanes since the 2004 and 2005 seasons, but all it takes is one to devastate an area.Are you prepared to weather the storm as the 2013 season gets under way? Do you have your basic supplies? Know what youll do with your pets? In these pages is all you need to know. June November 2013 In LAttitudesKey West Pride 2013 marks 10 years since the unveiling of the Sea to Sea Rainbow Flag. Story, 4B Permits about to be issuedFor some No Name Key homeowners, all thats left is getting their electrical and air conditioning contractors to show up, get their work done and inspected, and then throw the switch.We filled out the paperwork Wednesday, Bob Reynolds said. We have a utility easement at my house and we permitted and had installed a utility pole. Keys Energy [Services] has already dropped the line onto that pole in that easement. Theoretically, Ive got electricity power on my property today. After decades of battles, the 43 homeowners on No Name can now hook up to the commercial grid and shut off their diesel-powered generators.Beth Vickrey said her A/C contractor was scheduled to start work Saturday, and her electrical contractor on Tuesday. She hopes to call the county for an inspection by Thursday.Its possible because on Wednesday, Monroe County Circuit Court Judge David Audlin signed off on an order that allows the homeowners to connect to the grid. Key West attorney Bart Smith filed the request after the County Commission on May 15 voted not to block electrical permits if ordered by the court.Smith represents Reynolds and his wife Julianne Reynolds, and Jim and Ruth Newton, who argued successfully before the state Public Service Commission May 14 that they have the right to commercial power.The PSC voted that it not only has jurisdiction to grant electricity, but that the island should be provided it. At present, no Name homes are powered by solar panels and generators.Members of the No Name Key Property Owners Association paid roughly $650,000 last summer for Keys Energy to install 61 power poles and lines on the 1,000-acre island off Big Pine Key.Association President Kathy Brown said her members are relieved Audlin issued the order. That groups attorney, Andy Tobin, filed a similar request last year but it took a PSC ruling to speed up the process. We are pleased [county] commissioners [Danny] Kolhage, [George] Neugent and [David] Rice recognized the hardships we have suffered and that the law is clear and voted to end riding the dead horse, Brown said. Personally, I look forward to eliminating my generator and begin net metering, providing a sustainable, environmental way of life. The PSC vote led the County Commission to essentially wash its hands of any county legal involvement on No Name.

Others float on hulls of hammered sheet metal barely hanging onto wooden frames. Theyve usually got an engine they pulled out of some vehicle, or a makeshift sail, Costoya said, hefting a mast fashioned by popping branches from a tree limb still covered with bark.Some emigrants from Cubas political repression and floundering economy manage to arrange pickup by smugglers aboard speedboats from the U.S. Others, unable to afford the high cost, build these in the woods and slip away at night.Some of the escape boats are found with emigrants still aboard. Others were left adrift after Cubans were taken aboard more substantial vessels. If stopped by the U.S. Coast Guard at sea, those people are returned to Cuba.That happened May 10 to about a dozen Cubans stoppedRamshackle crafts show ingenuityKeynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWOfficers Janette Fernandez Costoya and Sebastian Dri check a fleet of Cuban refugee crafts crowding a channel at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions Islamorada station at Whale Harbor.Seven of the home-built boats have been recovered off the Upper Keys since mid-April.KEVIN WADLOW and DAVID GOODHUEkwadlow@keynoter.com BACK ON THE FIELDKeynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYCoral Shores High School running back George Jacobsen is en route to scoring the go-ahead touchdown during Thursdays spring scrimmage against Doral Academy in Marathon.The Canes,Dolphins and Firebirds all played each other for one half.Story, 1BStorm forecast is expandingForecasts of tropicalstorm formation could extend from two days to five days this hurricane season. The Tropical Weather Outlook issued by the National Hurricane Center traditionally assesses weather systems might turn into a tropical cyclone development during the 48 hours. We hope to expand that 48 hours to five days, sometime before the peak of hurricane season this year, said Dennis Feltgen, public affairs officer at the Hurricane Center in Miami. The center staff has the science and skill to go further in time, Feltgen said, so we want to be able to do this. Thursday, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issued its annual hurricane-season forecast. The season runs from June 1 to Nov. 30 but usually peaks in September and October. NOAAsays there is a 70 percent likelihood of 13 to 20 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which seven to 11 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including three to six major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5, or winds of 111 mph or higher). These ranges are well above the seasonal average of 12 named storms, six hurricanes and three major hurricanes, NOAAsaid. During a presentation at the National Hurricane Conference in March in New Orleans, a center forecaster said, Users are also very interested in a forecast beyond 48 hours.... Our ability at medium-range forecasts is now well documented and we are ready to make them available to the public. Hurricane staffers have been experimenting in-house with genesis forecasts since 2009.

After the state Department of Education released the results Friday, Schools Superintendent Mark Porter said hes concerned some Keys schools appear to lag behind the state average, which is certainly not where we expect Keys students to be. In Monroe County, 58 percent of third-grade students taking the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test scored a 3.0 or better in reading on a 1 to 5 point scale. Last year, 62 percent of Keys third-graders managed a 3.0 or higher.This year, Treasure Village Montessori third-graders posted the highest results in reading with 86 percent scoring a 3.0 or better. The same students also took the top spot in third-grade math with 86 percent scoring a 3.0 or better. The next-closest school was Poinciana Elementary, where 59 percent of third-graders scored 3.0 or better.Florida Education Commissioner Tony Bennett said statewide results are encouraging, noting that the percentage of students performing at or above 3.0 increased by 1 percent to 57 percent in 2012.However, state education officials said comparisonsTreasure Village leads the way in most categoriesMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSKeynoter Staff See No Name,3ASee Boats,2ASee FCAT,2ASee Storms,2A
with previous years is difficult because the tests have gotten harder and, in the case of the writing exam, students are given more time to write the required essays. In previous years, the writing exam allotted 45 minutes. This year, that was extended to 60 minutes.Porter said his initial reaction, before studying the data in depth, is that results appear somewhat mixed. We have some cause for celebration but still areas for concern.He added the district would use the scoring data to focus attention on areas that need work.Third-grade reading scores of 198-209 are equivalent to a grade of 3.0. Heres how Keys students at each school scored: Treasure Village 212, Key West Montessori 208, Plantation Key School 207, Sigsbee Charter 204, Key Largo School 202, Poinciana Elementary 201, Big Pine Academy 199, Switlik Elementary 197, Glynn Archer Elementary 196, Sugarloaf Elementary 194, Gerald Adams Elementary 193.Results for third-grade math tests: Treasure Village 213, Plantation Key School 206, Big Pine Academy 205, Key West Montessori 204, Poinciana Elementary 204, Key Largo School 202, Sigsbee Charter 202, Switlik Elementary 198, Gerald Adams Elementary 197, Sugarloaf School 189. Results from the writing tests are used to assign overall grades for each school in Florida, part of the Legislatures move toward more accountability and performance measures for teachers as well as students.

SEMPER FIDELIS MAHALO 1931-2013 You may include a graphic with your notice In memory of... M iami -D ade map chan g es affect K eysFlorida Keys residents evacuating in the face of a serious hurricane threat must traverse Miami-Dade County, which this year has expanded its own map of potential evacuation zones.South Florida emergency managers say constant communication and steadily improved forecasts should prevent any serious regional slowdowns of northbound traffic.Weve got a regional coordination strategy in whatever event we may be activating for, Miami-Dade Emergency Management Director Curtis Sommerhoff said this week. We have our own understanding of how we assist each other, Monroe Emergency Management Director Irene Toner said. Theres a comfort level.Sommerhoff said, We discuss things likely to happen in the next 12 hours and consider protective action, evacuation other potential impediments.If Monroe is looking to evacuate and were looking to evacuate, we look at when we should start. Toner said, Well have to move first because whatever we do affects Miami-Dade. We have to move before they issue their order. Sommerhoff noted that Miami-Dades expanded evacuation map which includes portions of Floridas Turnpike critical to Monroe Countys evacuation does not mean all areas of the mainland county will be affected in the same storm, or at the same time. New evacuation zones were drawn because of an updated storm-surge model, which indicates that even some Miami-Dade areas far inland may be vulnerable in some storms. Except in possibly a [Category] 4 or 5 hurricane coming in at high tide, youre not going to see the kind of surge [inland] that you see at the coast, Sommerhoff said. In some scenarios, projected evacuation times actually decreased from earlier models, he said. Overall, it seems like were in pretty good shape, he said. But the South Florida hurricane season that starts June 1 should never be taken lightly, Sommerhoff said. As bad has Hurricane Andrew was [in 1992], it wasnt the big one, he said. Andrew was relatively small and fast-moving.Something like Hurricane Katrina, a big and slow-moving storm that devastated the Gulf Coast, was closer to the Great Miami Hurricane of 1926, a Category 4 that washed over Miami Beach, killing dozens in South Florida and even more around flooded Lake Okeechobee.We dont want another one of those, Sommerhoff said.County expands its flood zonesHURRICANE SEASONTest scores are mixedFrom FCAT,1Aby the Coast Guard about 15 miles off Islamorada. Recreational fishermen Doug Peterson and Stu Kingma saw the makeshift sailboat cruising near the Islamorada Hump. The boat next to us circled them, and then called the Coast Guard, Peterson said. They showed up right away.Coast Guard spokesman Petty Officer 3rd Class Mark Barney said those migrants have been returned to Cuba. There is no atypical increase in Cubans making the journey across the Florida Straits, he said, but this time of year usually is busy. The better the weather gets, the more we get, Barney said. Cuban emigrant arrivals are down about 25 percent compared to the same time period in 2012, said Elee Erice, a spokeswoman with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. From October 2011 to April 30, 2012, the agency reported 217 maritime arrivals. This year so far, there have been 166 maritime arrivals. The number of Cubans intercepted at sea also is down so far this year by about 35 percent, according to Coast Guard data. From October 2011 to April 30, 2012, 816 Cubans were stopped at sea. During the same time period this year, that number is 526. Sometimes, the FWC officers recover the homemade boats with no idea what happened to those aboard. Almost all those venturing to sea aboard the small boats are men, Costoya said. One group I found had a woman with a 2-year-old child, Costoya said. I couldnt believe it. She said it was worth the risk to give her child a better life.

Once hurricane season begins, the Tropical Weather Outlook is issued four times daily: At 8 a.m., and 2 and 8 p.m., and 2 a.m. eastern time. The first long-range forecasts may be limited to written reports, with chart graphics following later in the season or in 2014. The Hurricane Center also is working on prototypes for an inundation graphic for storm-surge warnings, but it could take another few years before that is released on a regular basis.Recent hurricane seasons have shown that Hurricane Center forecasters have improved the accuracy of laying out the probable path of formed storms, Feltgen said.We still have a long way to go on the intensity forecasts, he said. Efforts to accurately predict the strength of a hurricane at landfall are a priority, Feltgen said, but it may be another five years of research and work.Forecast expandsFrom Storms,1ABy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com
AMiami-Dade man accused of driving drunk on the Seven Mile Bridge and slamming into another car, killing the driver, is set for arraignment on Thursday the day he turns 24. Xavier Ycaza, whos in the Monroe County Detention Center with no bond allowed, is charged with driving under the influence-manslaughter, DUIserious bodily injury and DUI-property damage. His blood alcohol content following the April 17 crash was .17 percent, Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Kathleen McKinney said. In Florida, .08 percent is considered legally drunk. Troopers say that at 8:50 p.m. the night of the crash, Grand Rapids, Mich., resident Floyd DeVos, 79, was driving south over the bridge with his wife of 59 years, Nancy, 76, in the passenger seat of their 1999 Chevrolet. Thats when Ycazas northbound 2013 Nissan swerved into the southbound lanes and slammed head-on into the DeVos car. Ycaza was flown to Ryder and on May 9, when he was released, state troopers immediately arrested him and brought him to the Keys jail. The DeVoses were regular visitors to the Sunshine Key RVResort, just south of the Seven Mile Bridge. An obituary in the Grand Rapids Press said Floyd spent the last years of his life enjoying the Florida Keys and its amazing fishing. Ycazas arraignment Thursday is set for 1:30 p.m. before Acting Circuit Court Judge Ruth Becker at the Marathon courthouse. Records dont show if Ycaza, who lives in Golden Beach, has an attorney.Pedestrian killedAman who lived mostly in Key West and Marathon died Thursday night after being struck by a car at mile marker 10. Troopers say Donald Huskey, 69, was attempting to walk across U.S. 1 from east to west when he walked into the path of a southbound 1993 Dodge driven by Jeffrey Fitch, 33, of Key West. Alcohol wasnt a factor, troopers said. There have been 11 traffic fatalities south of Florida City this year. Saturday,May 25,2013 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com T A VERNIER: 92410 Overseas Hwy.

No Name residents Bob and Julianne Reynolds, along with neighbors Jim and Ruth Newton, filed a $10 million discrimination lawsuit against Monroe County in January that Reynolds says will proceed. Absolutely not, he said when asked if the suit would be dropped now that Keys Energy Services should provide commercial electricity to homeowners on the 1,000acre island off Big Pine Key within days. Weve been discriminated against the entire time we were there, said Reynolds, who bought his house on No Name in 2005.He said I have to pursue it, calling a county law prohibiting utilities in federal Coastal Barrier Resource System areas, and its previous unwillingness to issue building permits to connect to 61 power poles on the island, totally unacceptable.Ive spent the last eight years dealing with this, spending time and money I could have spent on anything else. Ive had to fight the conscious discrimination against my family and my community as perpetuated by my government, Reynolds said. Congress created the Coastal Barrier Resource System in 1982 and updated it in 1990 to protect undeveloped coastal barrier areas. Reynoldsarguments are many, including that his home is not in a CBRS area, which it is not. Only the homes closest to the Gulf of Mexico are in the CBRS.In addition, Reynolds points to conflicting language in the countys comprehensive plan and land development regulations regarding discouraging and prohibiting utilities in CBRS areas.Reynolds and the Newtons successfully argued before the state Public Service Commission on May 14 that the island has the right to connect to the grid. The county had long argued that its comprehensive plan supercedes PSC authority. County Attorney Bob Shillinger said the county will absolutely fight the discrimination suit.Well make our arguments in the court, he said. We dont believe [Reynolds] satisfies the standing in state law or federal law for a discrimination case.The case was filed as a four-part complaint including federal and state discrimination counts, a writ of mandamus compelling the county to issue electrical permits, and a claim that the countys 2001 law prohibiting utilities in CBRS areas was not properly advertised prior to adoption.Shillinger said the federal discrimination claim has been dropped and the case is back in Monroe County Circuit Court. There are no hearings scheduled, according to the County Clerks website.Reynolds says discrimination was blatantBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comNO NAME KEYvoting not to block permits, the board voted not to appeal the PSC ruling. The commissions decision came as no surprise. In February, it voted unanimously to drop a trespassing action against Keys Energy over aerial easements on No Name, as well as an appeal of a Circuit Court decision that put final say over electrification in the PSCs hands. Just a few months ago, the decades-long battle over electricity on No Name appeared to be more backlogged than ever. There were several pending court actions as well as the ReynoldsPSC complaint.Jim Newton applied for and was granted an electrical permit in June but the county said it was issued in error and revoked it. He sued after the county Planning Commission upheld staffs decision.County Growth Management Director Christine Hurley told the Keynoter via e-mail Wednesday that staff signed off the Planning Department reviews on permits already applied for. According to the county, the following residents have already applied for electrical permits: Brown, the Reynoldses, the Newtons, Brad and Beth Vickrey, John Lentini, Doug and Karen Phillip, and Mark and Marjorie Licht. Keys Energy spokesman Julio Barroso said that when permits are issued, homes could be connected in less than 24 hours. Meanwhile, the clock is ticking on anyone mulling an appeal to the PSCs May 14 decision.Afinal order confirming that boards decision was posted to the PSC website on Tuesday, giving anyone 21 days to protest. No one has come forward to say they will.The homeowners association says by its count, 32 of the islands 43 homeowners are members of the association and all reportedly plan to connect to the grid. Some residents, including opponent Alicia Putney, will remain off the grid but have the option to connect at anytime. Reynolds said connecting to the grid does not mean hell abandon a solar system he says is the second or third largest on the island. I think it makes more sense where you can tie it into the grid, especially if you dont live in a house every day. Im producing a prodigious amount of solar every day that goes to waste, Reynolds said.Contractors already calledFrom No Name,1ADUI-manslaughter suspect set for courtArraignment falls on his 24th birthdayIN THE COURTS YCAZAKeynoter Staff

Pat Lefere likely wont be out of work for long when he retires next month.The career aviator, who transfers the stations command to Capt. Steven McAlearney on June 6 after three years at the helm, on Tuesday likely will be approved as the Monroe County School Districts director of operations and planning. If Superintendent Mark Porters decision gets the green light from the School Board at its 5 p.m. meeting at Marathon High School, Lefere would start a two-year contract July 1 at $116,381 annually.Lefere declined comment on his next job until he hands over NAS operations to McAlearney, but Porter said Lefere stood far above the nine other applicants to replace Michael Kinneer, who resigned April 7 after being told he wouldnt be retained.Human Resources Director John Welsh, Transportation Director Kayleen Watts and ITspecialist Barbara Cavanah vetted the resumes and shortlisted them to six. That was then planned to be shortlisted to three to be interviewed, but Porter said that wasnt necessary. He was the only candidate interviewed, Porter said. We thought we would see a distinction among the applicants but the gap was so clear in distinction.... I think he is bringing potentially a wealth of qualifications and experience, and a healthy dose of integrity. That, Porter said, will contribute to stability in a schools system that has lacked it for at least the past four years, when the Acevedo finance scandal broke, resulting in the governor removing the superintendent from office. Hiring Lefere leaves Porter with two other highlevel jobs to fill, finance director and humanresources director. Ken Gentile and Cheryl Allen, respectively, previously held the posts but Porter didnt extend their contracts when they expired in the spring.MONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSRare conviction for derelict boatLeaving a 25-foot sailboat anchored in Cow Key Channel put a misdemeanor conviction on a Key West mans record Wednesday. Steven D. Kudlaty, 39, fought the charge from September 2010 in a oneday jury trial before Monroe County Court Judge Wayne Miller.Assistant State Attorney LaSonya Lacy OConnell prosecuted the case, a rare instance of an abandoned-boat charge reaching the trial stage. I dont remember any others, State Attorney Catherine Vogel said Thursday.People need to realize that abandoning a boat or allowing it to become a derelict is a crime, Vogel said. It creates a navigational hazard thats a danger to other boats and to sea life. And it costs taxpayer money to remove it.OConnell said the Catalina sailboat, anchored on the channels bayside, was tagged by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission as abandoned and pre-derelict in September 2010, then removed several weeks later.When it was towed, the boat was still afloat but a flooded cabin and poor condition left it likely to sink, OConnell said. It was a wreck.At a sentencing hearing expected within six weeks, the state will seek restitution for the cost of removing the boat, Vogel said. Cost of the removal in Kudlatys case was not immediately available.AMay 15 report to the Monroe County Commission noted that from April 2012 through March 2013, $203,447 from local and state boating funds was spent to remove 61 derelict vessels from Florida Keys waters.IN THE COURTSKeynoter Staff By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org

A Tribute to Our Veterans Oxitec: SuccessAs the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District awaits U.S. approval, Director Michael Doyle on Monday reported positive results from British company Oxitecs latest genetically modified mosquito effort in Brazil.Doyle told the Mosquito Control Board that Oxitec on May 15 reported a 96 percent suppression of dengue-carrying Aedes aegypti mosquitoes in the village of Mandacaru, near the city of Juazeiro in Brazil. Its more good news and its another indication that the technology is working in a wide variety of places. Thats always a concern with any new technology, he said.Oxitec breeds genetically modified Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, the dengue-fever carrier that caused a 2009 outbreak of the disease in Old Town Key West. There have been no reported cases since.Monroe County health officials confirmed 93 cases in 2009. Dengue causes bone pain and related maladies, but isnt typically fatal.Oxitecs mosquitoes carry a gene preventing them from mating. If they do, their offspring would die before reaching adulthood, hopefully causing the wild breeding population to decrease dramatically.Oxitec reportedly released large numbers of the mosquitoes for six months in Mandacaru, reducing the villages wild population to 4 percent of its original size. That suppression level was maintained for an additional seven months using continued, reduced releases. Oxitec produced similar results in Grand Cayman, an island with a comparable climate to Key West, in 2011. The fact that its worked in the Cayman Islands, which are very similar to the Keys, its just encouraging and makes us that more interested, Doyle said. There hasnt been much in the way of new information since Doyle took part in an expert U.S. Food and Drug Administration panel in February to discuss a similar project in Key West. The FDAhas agreed to oversee potential permitting of a Key West trial. The district wants to take a proactive approach to suppressing the Aedes population, but the project is controversial and many locals oppose it. However, the district performed a wide-ranging survey recently that indicates large-scale local support. North Carolina State University Professor Michael Cobb did the study.Cobb is a political science professor, but also studies public perceptions about emerging technologies, according to his N.C. State faculty page. Part of that is transgenic techniques for managing pests like mosquitoes.Asked their opinions about using [genetic engineering] technology to control mosquitoes in Key West, 61 percent of 610 people from Key West to Key Largo strongly support (24 percent) or support (37 percent) the idea. Twenty-1 percent were neutral; 10 percent opposed and 8 percent strongly opposed. Asked how safe they feel releasing genetically modified mosquitoes is, 80 percent said its either very safe (18 percent) or safe (62 percent). Twenty percent said they feel it would be unsafe (12 percent) or very unsafe (8 percent). Doyle said that for a Key West release, a timeline and ultimate decision are not known.Brazil used genetically altered bugsBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROLSouthcott calling it a dayFlorida Keys Mosquito Control District Comptroller William Southcott is retiring after 24-plus years overseeing the agencys annual budget.District Director Michael Doyle announced the retirement at Mosquito Controls Mondays meeting in Marathon. Southcotts last day is expected to be June 30.I plan to stay in the county and just move on to the next chapter of my life, Southcott said. Its time for Mosquito Control to be handed off to somebody new.Southcott worked for a time under former Director Lois Ryan, who died last week, before stints at the Monroe County Health Department and Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority. I was offered to come back to the district and to fill the comptroller position, he said. I decided Id come back to Mosquito Control because I liked it. It wasnt just crunching numbers; it was a lot more management and things like that. It was a more well-rounded position, Southcott said. The current budget is $10.6 million. The Mosquito Control budget has come under close scrutiny in recent years, especially under former Director Ed Fussell, who retired in January 2011. He was criticized for padding and later rapidly spending down cash reserves. The districts fiscal year 2012-13 budget was balanced for the first time in several years, and Southcott was outspoken about declining reserves.Current Director Michael Doyle took over for Fussell in July 2011, and was immediately tasked with formulating a three-year strategic plan for the district. Alarge part of it was stabilizing reserves.For more on this story, go to www.KeysNet.com .Comptroller is retiringBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROLLOVING THE LOVE FUND The Key West Police Department Love Funds second annual orchid auction May 11 at the Square One restaurant raised about $3,000 from the sale of orchids grown at the Monroe Association of ReMARCable Citizensplant store.The fund is used to help officers and their families in financial distress.Here,Mike Roth,who runs the plant store,and Jean Zeman,a police volunteer, take a break at the event.For many more community photos,check out our newest gallery at www.KeysNet.com.

It also claimed there were very few true solar communities anywhere in the world. Youve got her wrong and missed the point. Alicia was fighting to protect Monroe County laws that discourage expanding utilities and increasing development on barrier islands. She was not an obstructionist she was thinking of our future.As for solar communities, Alicia and her late husband Mick walked the walk with their solar collectors, cistern and naturally vented home they built. They had a dream. Was that such a bad thing?There will never be any solar communities unless someone dreams of one first, and works to build it. The Florida Keys are the perfect place for such a dream becoming a reality. And the time is right, since we humans are threatening our own existence by burning fossil fuels so relentlessly. The Putneys and other No Name residents had worked for decades to keep public power at bay. Was it so terrible for them to hope we could experiment on one tiny island here in the Keys? Lined up against the pro-solar group were other No Name residents, including newcomers who knew the terms when they bought their homes but wanted power anyway. Also interested in expanding electricity to the island was our own power company, Keys Energy Services. It has long talked about greening the Keys and supporting solar energy but passed on this chance to actually take a stand in favor of the environment.The Public Service Commission decision to allow electricity on No Name Key is a loss to all of us. They thumbed their nose at our county land-use laws and helped root out a solar-power seedling growing here in the Keys. What kind of public service was that? Finally, in my opinion, the power of the press could be used to support this sustainability direction rather than take pot shots at those who do. George Halloran Key WestCity harms businessWhen I owned the Maytag laundry in Marathon, about 25 percent of my business came from the boaters at Boot Key. The city now has at least three washers and dryers for the boaters at the City of Marathon Marina. That took away 25 percent of the Maytag laundrys business. Why doesnt the city open a grocery store, a drug store, even a restaurant and put more businesses out of business? Ed Putz MarathonFocus on crime,crashesI am a resident of Key West and really enjoy life here. But I am very disappointed with the rise in crime as reported in the Keynoter on May 11. I am sorry, but there is no excuse for the rise in the crime rate, especially when the rest of Florida reported a decrease. This report, along with the report a short while ago that stated that Key West is No. 1 in traffic accidents per capita is very disturbing. I strongly suggest that Police Chief Donie Lee, for whom I have the utmost respect, make solving these problems his No. 1 priority. Jules Cohen Key WestHurricane season starts June 1, and with it come new weather forecasting technologies and modelsForecasts for this years hurricane season call for a busier run of named storms in the Atlantic basin. But few count on those long-range predictions, except for actuarial number crunchers who work for property and casualty companies. For the rest of us, the old Boy Scout motto about being prepared is the better course to follow for hurricane season, which runs June 1 to Nov. 30. Inside todays Keynoter youll find a comprehensive guide with all the information youll need to prepare for a storm, develop a family evacuation plan, protect your pets, and timely reminders about replacing batteries in portable radios and flashlights. Assume no power and maybe no water for days in the event of a bad one what would you do? In todays guide, youll find helpful advice on what to stock foodwise, what to expect in an evacuation, what you can and cant bring to a shelter, and so much more. Monroe Countys evacuation plan has changed, now requiring residents living in mobile homes, travel trailers, recreational vehicles and boats to evacuate in advance of a Category 3, 4 or 5 storm. The county is negotiating for a shelter site on the mainland after Florida International University changed its agreement with the county. Now, FIU will only house Keys evacuees with special needs, including the infirm, elderly or transfers from Monroe hospitals. At a hurricane preparedness workshop Tuesday in Key West, Rick Knabb, the director of the National Hurricane Center, spoke. He outlined a storm-surge warning system the center will implement this year which is of particular interest in the Keys, with memories of Hurricane Wilma from October 2005 still fresh in many minds. This will be a critical year for hurricane preparedness work in the Keys, as the county, city officials and state agencies adopt new hurricane evacuation models, which assume an earlier start to evacuation. Storm prediction models are also going to speed up, with more data being gathered and analyzed than ever before. How that will impact the decision-making process for emergency managers will be closely watched this storm season. Storm-surge predictions will also be closely monitored, since even Category 1 and 2 storms can produce high tides and flooding witness Hurricane Sandys devastation in New Jersey and parts of New York and Connecticut. This year, if were lucky, the high-pressure systems that kept many of last years hurricanes well offshore and headed northward into the open Atlantic Ocean will repeat their magic touch again. LETTERS TO THE EDITORCat-astrophe avoidedI was delivering my two cats to Dr. Michael Dunn at Keys Animal Hospital on Overseas Highway in Marathon for a checkup when the carrier transporting both cats fell apart as the office assistant held the front door. Missy, a lovely little female with several feral genes, bolted outside the office as the carrier malfunctioned. Two assistants immediately ran out of the office, followed by Dr. Dunn, determined to catch the fugitive. Youll never catch her, I said, knowing how nearly impossible it was to catch Missy to put her in the carrier in the first place. But the determined doctor and his staff refused to lose an animal on their watch. Missy sped through two parking lots, over a six-foot concrete fence, over a second fence into a yard that housed two dogs, and then flew out of that yard, choosing to swim across the canal as the lesser danger. With the vet staff in hot pursuit and with the help of a passing boater and some friendly backyard neighbors, the freaked-out feline was netted and gently toted back to the office in the arms of Dr. Dunn a near tragedy turned into a happy cat tale. Kathryn Morris MarathonProtect the childrenI recently completed 57 months as a house parent in a residential care home for foster children in Key West.Comforting little kids crying themselves to sleep, asking for their mommas, is emotionally wrenching, but part of the job.However, case managers often made it worse, such as the time one placed a 4-year-old boy in the same bedroom as an unrelated 16-year-old boy. Unfortunately, no Florida legislation exists to protect little kids from such an inappropriate age placement while in protective custody. Who will protect these already vulnerable kids from the living conditions in such shelters? Mike Sawyer Denver, Colo. Support taxi rulesI would like to thank the Marathon City Council, particularly Ginger Snead and Dick Ramsay, for supporting taxi regulation in Marathon. Ever since I opened Keyhopper Transportation Inc. and joined the taxi industry, I have made several attempts to get someone to enact a way to govern and carry out the laws required by our state statutes regarding taxis. There are three major flaws that do not have the publics best interests in mind that are finally going to be addressed when the new regulations in Marathon are enacted:Finally, taxi companies will have to provide proof of insurance or financial responsibility in case there is an at-fault accident involving a taxi. Currently there is no one checking or making sure the statute is being enforced.There will be no more taxis operating out of their homes; they must have a legitimate place of business that is zoned appropriately.Safety is No. 1, and now all drivers must possess a Florida drivers license registered with the city. The taxi operator will also need to register with the city, with proof of insurance. All commercial auto policies in Florida already do not allow drivers under 26, require a safe-driver check and must be added to the policy before they can drive. The council recommends that each driver and vehicle be registered with the city to provide an additional safety net. The problem has always been proper insurance to be able to operate in Marathon safely and legitimately. Please support this much-needed ordinance in Marathon. Patti Haws Keyhopper Transportation MarathonFoster parents essentialMay is National Foster Parent Appreciation Month. In recognition of the caring, selfless foster parents of Monroe County, Wesley House Family Services, together with Our Kids Miami-Dade/Monroe, held two events to celebrate. The first was in Key West for families living in the Lower Keys. On May 18, the foster parents who live in the Lower Keys were invited to dinner at Key West Harbour for a fabulous dinner prepared by Chef Eduardo Rodrigues. Guests received gift bags filled with wonderful items brought forth by our community. Eleven of our Lower Keys foster parents along with representatives from Our Kids Miami Dade-Monroe and Wesley House Family Services enjoyed a relaxing evening where the goal was to show our foster parents that we truly appreciate all that they do every day for the foster children in our community. While our foster parents were at their event, a simultaneous event was taking place in Key West, where 18 of our foster children were being treated to a pajama jammy jam. Children were invited to come to a fun pajama party, watch movies, play games, make gifts for their foster parents and spend time with friends that are experiencing similar feelings, emotions and challenges. This enabled our foster parent group to unwind as they knew that their children were being well cared for, and allowed for a much needed break. If you or someone you know would like to learn more about foster care in Monroe County, please call me at 8095000, Ext. 228.The mission of Wesley House Family Services is promoting and enhancing the safety, well-being and development of children by educating, supporting and meeting the needs of families.Lissette Cuervo Carey Wesley House Family Services Key WestKeynoter photo by LARRY KAHNTwo Marathon taxi drivers chat Thursday while awaiting fares in the Winn-Dixie parking lot.
After months of negative publicity surrounding broken-down cruise ships and fed-up passengers, the cruise industrys trade group announced the adoption of a Passenger Bill of Rights.The 10-item list, released late Wednesday afternoon, specifically addresses issues that might arise if a ship suffers an emergency or mechanical failure. The Cruise Lines International Association, with input from member lines, adopted the list after a push from Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer of New York.In March, Schumer suggested the cruise industry adopt guarantees similar to the airline passenger bill of rights in response to a string of horrifying and dangerous incidents aboard international cruise ships.The Carnival Triumph in February was left powerless at sea following a fire. In the month that followed, three other Carnival Cruise Lines ships had mechanical or steering issues, one that required passengers to be flown home from St. Maarten.Cruise Lines International Association public affairs director David Peikin said all 26 North American member cruise lines have adopted the bill, and members outside North America will follow suit. He said the rights will become part of passengers contracts of carriage and will be legally enforceable. While the organization said that many of the items were already common practice for member lines, the formal adoption ensures consistency and communicates the standards to passengers. We agreed with Senator Schumers recommendation that an explicitly stated Passenger Bill of Rights enumerating specific practices regarding passenger comfort and care was a good way to openly communicate the industrys high standards and provide a clear level of accountability, Peikin said. Included on the list:The right to disembark a docked ship if essential needs arent able to be addressed on board.The right to a full refund if a trip is cancelled due to mechanical problems or a partial refund for trips that are cut short.The right for passengers to get timely updates about itinerary changes if a mechanical failure or emergency disrupts a trip, as well as updates on attempts to deal with mechanical problems.The right to transportation to the scheduled final port or a passengers home city if a cruise ends early because of mechanical issues.The right to a place to stay if passengers must disembark and stay overnight at an unscheduled port.Other guarantees involve crew training in emergency and evacuation procedures; having professional emergency medical attention available on oceangoing ships; and emergency power if a generator fails. The list will be included on each lines website, which will also feature toll-free phone lines for questions.Miami maritime attorney Charles Lipcon, who represents passengers and crew in claims against cruise lines, called the measure a step in the right direction.No question about it, the cruise lines have recently dropped the ball I think in a very, very large way, he said. And if they carry through on this, I think its very good.He added: The missing element here, the really important thing thats not really being discussed, is a crew member bill of rights. The Associated Press reported that Schumer called the passenger bill of rights a step in the right direction towards increased accountability for the cruise industry and ensuring the safety and well-being of its passengers. In an emailed response, he told the APthat he still has many remaining questions, both on the content and how the bill of rights will be enforced. I will be asking the industry to respond to a set of detailed questions, and will continue to insist on changes to ensure the safety and wellbeing of their passengers.

The former chief finance officer of the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District pleaded no contest to felony computer hacking Tuesday and was sentenced to one year of probation. The plea was a settlement stemming from Sal Zappulas arrest in March 2012 on 13 counts of computer crime with intent to defraud, seven counts of modifying information without authority and one count of deleting information from the special taxing districts computer system. Zappulla, 50, must also pay $420 in court costs, $100 to pay for the prosecution and $100 for the investigation, said Demetrios Efstratiou, supervising attorney with the Upper Keys State Attorneys Office. Zappulla, who lives in Key West, could not be reached for comment. Ray Giglio, general counsel for the wastewater treatment district, said he was pleased with the outcome of the case. It was a very fair settlement and resolution, Giglio said. It was don in the best interest of all parties, including Mr. Zappulla. Zappulla is accused of hacking into the wastewater districts computer system to download personnel file and emails. He did this after his contract was not renewed. According to his arrest warrant, Zappulla admitted to detectives that he downloaded the material using the wastewater districts IT directors generic password. Zappulla reportedly bragged to Detective Robert Dosh about being able to hack into the system, according to Doshs affidavit. Zappulla had a history of conflict with employers before the wastewater district hired him in 2011. He lost his job as Monroe Countys budget director in 2007. The termination centered on harshly worded e-mails he sent on his work computer regarding colleagues. After being fired, he appealed and later received a $147,000 settlement from the county in April 2008 before the matter went to a hearing. Soon after the wastewater district hired him, he began to butt heads with colleagues. Aseries of e-mail conversations between district General Manager Margaret Blank and Zappulla were leaked that showed a tense relationship between the two officials. Asked Wednesday if Blank was satisfied with the outcome of the case, she responded by e-mail, Yes, glad its over!

Zappulla cuts deal in computerhacking caseIts probation for the former finance chiefBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comIN THE COURTS Cab law to get finalizedTaxi regulations initially approved on May 14 are up for a second hearing Tuesday before the Marathon City Council. After consulting with local cab operators Patti Haws and Sheila Wogan, the city agreed to lower the registration fee under a system that will better allow the city to monitor the companies. The council agreed to reduce a $500 initial registration to $300 and a $250 annual renewal fee to $100 twice a year. A$50 fee per vehicle and driver, after the first driver, was brought down to $5. That came after Haws explained to the council that drivers and vehicles are constantly in flux.Cab companies have a history of coming and going in Marathon. There are at least five now operating in the city: Island Taxi, On Time Taxi, Bob Gnarley, Keyhopper and Taxi in the Tropics.Tuesdays council meeting is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center. Other agenda items include:Aresolution finalizing a passive recreation conditional-use permit for Marathon nonprofit Crane Point Museum and Nature Center.The council approved installation of a zip line on May 14 after a lengthy public hearing at which numerous residents spoke for and against the estimated $1.1 million attraction. The vote was 4-1, with Councilman Rich Keating dissenting. If built, the zip line would run about 2,900 feet on the propertys east side, starting at the museum building and ending at the Crane house on Florida Bay. There would be nine towers, five ground-level landing spots and two sky bridges, mostly over water. All but two or three of the towers would be 37 feet high, the rest 46.25 feet. The city has secured a $727,000 state Community Development Block Grant through the Department of Economic Opportunity for the zip line. Opponents claim the zip line wont be financially viable and the city would end up on the hook for the money. The grant was given based on Crane Point creating 21 jobs for at least one year. Roughly $35,000 would have to be paid back to the state for each job not created, though Crane Point has pledged to cover at least the first four if necessary.Arather odd request to allow a demonstration of border collies herding sheep.The ask is part of St. Columba Episcopal Churchs request to sell beer and wine at its inaugural Florida Keys Celtic Festival Jan. 10 and 11.

They defeated the Firebirds, 10-7, and pulled away for a 28-0 victory over the Dolphins. Doral defeated the Dolphins, 26-14. I think the guys played well and they competed at new positions and did what we asked them to do, Canes coach Ed Holly said. The four-hour affair took place on a hot, muggy day at Marathon High. It didnt take long for Doral players to fall victim to cramps in the initial Canes-Firebirds matchup. At least a half dozen required medical attention during the contest. We knew it was going to be hot, Holly said.Against Doral, sophomore Paul Pachey put the Canes on the board first with a 42-yard field goal at the 1:39 mark of the first quarter. The Firebirds responded with a drive that featured a number of nice runs, but penalties, as well. One Doral player jumped offsides three times in a row to put the team in a first-and-25 situation.But they eventually scored on a rollout touchdown pass from nine yards out to make it 7-3 at the 7:47 mark of the second quarter.From that point on, the Canes were the more fit football team. While one Firebird after another cramped up, Coral Shores drove methodically down the field.George Jacobsen, Henry Jacobsen, Eddie Dunn and quarterback Nick Frisone all had carries on the 11-play, 70-yard scoring drive that put the Canes up 10-7 with 1:42 left to play. George Jacobsen scored the touchdown from five yards out. Coral Shores intercepted a third-down pass attempt on Dorals final drive that secured the victory. Marathon took on Doral in the next half, with the Firebirds earning the victory despite continuing to suffer cramps throughout. Doral took a 7-0 lead with 2:14 remaining in the first quarter, but the Dolphins responded with a 15-play, 70-yard scoring drive capped by a 32-yard touchdown pass from Max Elliott to Cooper Chaplin.The Dolphins missed the extra point and trailed 7-6 with 8:10 remaining in the second quarter. But Doral scored touchdowns on three of its next four offensive plays to put the game out of reach, 26-6, by the 5:35 mark. Marathon continued to fight, with Chaplin running hard on the Dolphinsfinal drive of the game. Elliott scored on a quarterback keeper with just 33 seconds remaining, while Chaplin scored on a two-point conversion to make it a 26-14 final. The Dolphins and Canes took the field for the last half of the night and the two teams were back and forth early on.The Dolphins were set to score after a Coral Shores pass interference penalty in the end zone gave them a first-and-goal inside the 10yard line. But they came away empty-handed after sacks on second and fourth downs.Dunn ran in a short touchdown on Canes ensuing drive to put them up 7-0 with 2:16 left in the first quarter.Coral Shores pulled away in the second quarter when Henry Jacobsen scored three touchdowns in a 3:16 span.Marathon falls to Coral Shores, Doral FirebirdsBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comPREP FOOTBALLKeynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYMarathon High School running back Cooper Chaplin carries the ball during Thursdays scrimmage against Doral Academy.The Dolphins lost to Doral and also to Coral Shores but Chaplin was a bright spot.He caught a 32-yard touchdown against Doral.Curry wins LowerKeysShane Curry of Key West caught a 42.6-pound dolphin to take first place in the 20th annual Big Pine and Lower Keys Dolphin Tournament that ended May 19.

This years selection process was especially challenging with so many programs providing critical services for local families that are going through tough times, she said. The organization made a decision to allocate more money to fewer agencies this year, focusing on programs that provide healthy food and child care to the largest number of low-income working Keys residents.

Sales of taco shells, seasonings and other products have grown steadily over the last decade, says Juv Marchisio, senior marketing manager for B&G Foods, which owns the Ortega brand, and research suggests that roughly half of all Americans indulge in tacos at home.And why not? Tacos offer communal family dining at its best: Theres no arguing or whining when can make it however they like it. But the way many Americans approach tacos at home ground beef, preshredded Mexican cheese, and that ubiquitous kit with shells and a flavor packet could use a revamp. Sure, you can change it up with whole-wheat tacos. You can sneak black beans into the ground beef. You could even go the way of the spaghetti taco popularized by the tween TVshow iCarly. But for advice on really taking your tacos to the next level, we turned to some innovative chefs and cookbook authors. Here are some of their most delicious and creative suggestions, no recipes needed.Persian tacosToss shredded chicken in a sauce of pomegranate molasses, lime juice and honey. Stuff the meat into a taco shell (or wrap it in a flour tortilla or even Middle Eastern flatbread) and top with yogurt, fresh basil, mint, scallions, tomato, cucumber and plenty of sumac. This is a classic combination of Persian ingredients, says Louisa Shafia, author of The New Persian Kitchen. Crushed purple sumac berries are tart and salty and a must have for conjuring the authentic flavor of Middle Eastern cuisine. To go vegetarian, Shafia suggests substituting roasted eggplant for the chicken.Steakhouse tacosSeason a flat-iron steak with salt and pepper, then sear it on the grill, suggests Washington, D.C., chef Spike Mendelsohn, who plans to open a steak frites restaurant called Bearnaise this summer. Wrap thin slices of the steak and pickled red onions inside a soft corn taco and serve with warm bearnaise sauce for dipping. I love the idea of eating a steak without sharpening my knives, Mendelsohn said.India tacosSpices like cumin, coriander and chilies are natural allies in both Mexican and Indian cuisine, says Ali Loukzada, chef at New Yorks Cafe Serai. So what could be more obvious than a chicken tikka taco drizzled with mint chutney? Apalms worth of shredded cabbage or radish adds crunch.When youre adapting Indian flavors to a Mexican dish, the original ingredients and tastes are still present, Loukzada said via email. Its more of an Indian tweak.To go completely native, ditch the taco shell for the crisp lentil-and-rice crepe called dosa.I Indianize our taco fillings at home all the time, Rohini Dey, owner of the Vermillion restaurant in New York and Chicago, says. At her restaurants, Dey offers a dosataco bar, where Latin fillings such as anchovies, avocado, chorizo and Michoacan beef are offered alongside the spiced potato stuffing traditionally used in dosa.Chutneys of mint, coconut and tamarind typical Mexican as well as Indian flavors line the toppings bar. By confining the chili to the chutneys instead of the filling, its easy for the family to tailor to each persons spice tolerance, Dey writes.Pig in a tacoStick a pork tenderloin in the slow cooker until it practically melts, suggests Marie Simmons, author of the new cookbook, Taste of Honey. Shred the meat, then toss it with a sweet-spicy barbecue sauce made by simmering honey, chipotle peppers packed in adobo sauce, ketchup, soy sauce, cumin, chili powder, garlic and a swig of cider vinegar for about 10 minutes, or until thick.I just love the deep, spicy taste of sticky glazed pork, Simmons says. Top the taco with avocado, thinly sliced radishes and a shredded jicama-and-carrot slaw dressed with chopped cilantro and lime juice.For vegetariansWell, duh! No taco line up is complete without a recipe from California. Santa Barbara-based food and garden blogger Valerie Rice (Eat Drink Garden) uses lentils as the base for her taco, simmering them with tomato, garlic, red pepper, and a dash each of cumin and smoked paprika. The lentils get packaged in a soft corn tortilla and topped with items such as roasted tomatillo salsa and guacamole.My first go-round with these I wasnt sure how it would go over with my meatloving husband and sometimes picky daughters, Rice wrote in an email. But they were a total hit and now are part of our dinnertime rotation.Expert chefs offering up their favoritesBy MICHELE KAYALAssociated PressTHE DINING TABLE Pulled-pork (left) and lentil tacos are served up with condiments.Associated Press photo by MATTHEW MEADLIVING BRIEFSBoondocks bingo benefits kidsThe Key West Police Athletic League and the Coldwell Banker Schmitt Charitable Foundation are joining efforts to raise money for kidsactivities Tuesday.Thats when Key West police officer Donny Barrios is calling bingo games at Boondocks Grille and Drafthouse at mile marker 27.5, Ramrod Key.

Monday is Memorial Day, observed on the last Monday of May each year to honor those who died while serving in the U.S. military. First known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Unofficially, it marks the beginning of summer and so-called grilling season. To ensure you have the safest Memorial Day possible when barbecuing, follow these simple rules:Always read the owners manual before using a new gas or charcoal grill.Do not lean over a barbecue grill when igniting.When lighting a gas grill, the lid should always be open.Gas or charcoals grills should never be used indoors; they are outdoor cooking appliances.Every time a refilled propane tank is reconnected to the barbecue, the hose connection should be checked for leaks.Always use heat-resistant barbecue mitts or gloves and long-handled tools.When done cooking, cover the charcoal grill and close all vents. Turn a gas grill off at the burners and the gas source. For grilling maintenance:Preheat the grill on high every time you use it.After pre-heating, use crumpled foil to loosen and clean away any gray ash or leftover residue on the cooking grates.After removing the food from the cooking grate, turn burners back to high and burn any stuck-on food off for 10 to 15 minutes.After each use, use a brass-bristle grill brush or crumpled foil to loosen and clean residue on the cooking grate.Remove accumulated ashes from charcoal grills frequently.Clean both the inner and the outer drip pan of a gas grill frequentlyOnce a year, clean the inside of the grill with warm, soapy water.

Which are the most energysaving models and should I go central air or window units?-Jackie Smith, Cary, N.C.According to the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy, energy consumption for home air conditioning units accounts for more than eight percent of all the electricity produced in the U.S., at a cost to homeowners of $15 billion annually.Besides the cost, all this cooling leads to annual emissions of about 195 million tons of CO2-or two tons per year for each American home with A/C. Of course, foregoing A/C entirely is the most energyand cost-efficient way to go, but some of us especially in the Florida Keys need a little cooling for comfort, especially in warmer climates. If A/C is a must, buying the most efficient model is the way to save money and pollute less.Fortunately, a new generation of much more efficient room and central A/C units means that upgrading will likely pay for itself in energy savings within just a few years.The main factors to consider in choosing a new model are cooling capacity (measured in British Thermal Units, or BTUs) and EnergyEfficiency Ratio, or EER. To determine the correct BTU rating for a given space, multiply the square footage by 10 and then add 4,000. Meanwhile, a given units EER is the ratio of cooling output divided by power consumption-the higher the EER, the more efficient the air conditioner.According to the U.S. Department of Energy, national appliance standards require room air conditioners to have an EER of 8.0 to 9.8 or more, depending on type and capacity. Units with an EER rating of 10 or above typically qualify for the federal governments ENERGYSTAR label, which appears on especially energy-efficient appliances. Check out the ENERGY STAR website for lists of qualifying A/C models.The Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) says that the average EER of room A/C units rose 47 percent from 1972 to 1991. To wit, replacing an older room unit with an EER of five with a new model with an EER of 10) would result in a 50 percent energy cost savings associated with A/C.As to whether room units or central A/C makes more sense, it depends. Room units, which only cost a few hundred dollars each, will suffice for renters or those who only need to keep one or two rooms cool at a time. Meanwhile, central A/C is more efficient overall at keeping a whole house cool, and will also do a better job at reducing household humidity than even several individual room units-and will save more money faster on electricity bills. But with a starting price of around $4,000 for the condenser and initial set-up (plus any duct work needed to distribute cool air around a home), central A/C isnt for everyone. ACEEE points out that there are ways to keep indoor space cooler without A/C: Improving insulation, sealing air gaps, getting rid of old appliances and light bulbs that give off lots of heat, running fans, using cooler colors on exterior roofing and paint, and other strategies. Those in particularly arid climates might also consider installing a swamp cooler (which cools outside air by running it over cold water) as a cheaper alternative to A/C.By following these suggestions and upgrading conscientiously, we can all stay a little more comfortable in our warming world without exacerbating the problem too much.EarthTalk is written and edited by Roddy Scheer and Doug Moss and is a registered trademark of E-The Environmental Magazine.

Its the frightening premise of an award-winning documentary, ASea Change, which will be shown Saturday, June 8, at the Marathon Power Squadron, 52nd Street, gulf, in Marathon. Sponsored by Sanctuary Friends Foundation of the Florida Keys, the screening is in honor of World Oceans Day. The documentary chronicles retired history teacher Sven Huseby on his quest to discover what is happening to the worlds oceans.His journey takes him to Alaska, California, Washington, and Norway as he uncovers a worldwide crisis, one that most people are unaware is even happening.Speaking with oceanographers, marine biologists, climatologists, and artists, Sven discovers that global warming is only half the story of the environmental catastrophe. Excess carbon dioxide is dissolving in our oceans, changing seawater chemistry. The more acidic water makes it difficult for tiny creatures at the bottom of the food web to form their shells. The effects could work their way up the food chain, imperiling fish populations that one billion people depend upon for their source of protein. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The film is free. Popcorn and drinks will be available for a small donation.

Its one form of art that he says links to nature and invites viewers to see things differently. You can often find Toia up with the sun, exploring nooks and spaces inhabited by the islands crab spiders, notes the curator of Toias work, which will be on exhibit at the Lucky Street Gallery through June. Unlike most, he does not sweep their webs to one side. He delicately, gently, stains the arachnid home, and then marches through it canvas and all. Toia, who recently moved to Key West, also uses jellyfish in other visual designs. His encounters with Key Wests fauna produced Flaglers Nemesis, The Determined Mr. Fuller, and Pillow for Surrender, among other works on display.

On the growth continuum between seeds and mature plants, microgreens lie somewhere on the newly arrived side, between sprouts and baby vegetables. These teensiest of seedlings, with delicate translucent stems that bear a hint of true leaf forms, can pack a surprisingly powerful and nutrient-rich flavor punch. Theyre also a quick and easy way to garden, because microgreens may be grown from seed during any season. Just plant them in flats by a sunny window; in a little more than two weeks, theyre ready. Their cheery colors and concentrated taste make them an eye-catching garnish and tangy topping for salads and soups. Purple basil, crimson beet and creamy white stemmed pak choi are yummy delights that have been discovered by chefs at better restaurants, and sourced from local producers to meet specific menu needs. Spicy greens such as mustard and radish, pungent herbs such as basil, fennel and cilantro, and other microveggies have great flavor and a great look on the plate, says chef Ouita Michel of Midways Holly Hill Inn in Woodford County, Ky. If something needs a spark and a splash of vibrancy, I typically go for the microgreens. Michel serves microgreens as an edible garnish, as a base for various dishes and in salads. Many vegetables and herbs work well as microgreens, including amaranth, mustard, kale, carrot, sweet peas, basil, cilantro and parsley. These little seedlings are highly perishable once harvested, but if grown at home, they are simple to snip and enjoy fresh at a moments notice. Using Eric Franks and Jasmine Richardsons reference book Microgreens: A Guide to Growing NutrientPacked Greens (Gibbs Smith, $24.99), I tried growing microgreens this month, with great success. Here is a step-by-step guide:Youll need a seed-starting tray, with a fitted transparent cover, and some planting medium, both of which can be found at big-box stores and garden centers. Clean, sterile supplies will help avoid introducing contaminants and diseases that can infect fragile seedlings. I bought three Jiffy Seed Starter kits, complete with trays of 50 peat pots, a plastic base tray and a clear dome; each tray measures about 16 by 10 inches, and about 2.5 inches deep. A10quart bag of Burpees organic seed starting mix made from coir, or coconut husk fiber, was enough to fill all three trays. My total expense was about $20.Decide which types of seed to grow. My favorites are beets, because the stems are a bright red and they have an earthy taste; cilantro and basil, because of the surprisingly intense flavor of the microgreens; and pak choi, or Chinese cabbage, for the heart-shaped cotyledon leaves.Do not use seeds that have been treated with pesticides or other chemicals. I chose an assortment of mostly organic varieties at local garden shops, which added up to about $15. Johnnys Selected Seeds has a gardener-friendly catalog atJohnnyseeds.com.Fill the trays with the starter mix, then lightly tamp it down and level it off. Sprinkle seeds close together atop the planting mix, depending on how densely you want your microgreens to grow. Ignore the packet directions for plant spacing because your plants will get nowhere near fully mature.Cover the seeds with a single layer of paper towel to aid in moisture retention for germinating seeds, then water the starter mix and seeds through the paper until damp but well-drained. Cover the tray with the plastic dome lid, and place it in a sunny, warm window. In a few days, youll see the greens begin to peek out. Meanwhile, keep the soil and paper towels damp.Once the sprouts are about an inch tall, gently remove the paper towels and lids, being careful the seedlings do not stick to the paper. Keep watering, but sprinkle the water gently so you dont knock over the microgreens.The first true leaves will emerge a few days after an initial pair of seed leaves. That means its time to harvest your micro crop. Gather them just before you want to use them by snipping off the stems close to the soil. If you thin out the seedlings to only one or two per peat pot and let them grow longer, youll have transplants for your outdoor garden. Susan Smith-Durisek writes for the Lexington Herald-Leader.

My clients, Don Waters and Ferguson McMahon from Miami, had been doing it for years and really just wanted me in a Driving Miss Daisy situation.As we made our way west, the seas lay down and the visibility became perfect. Circling my physically well-maintained AARPmembers, I noticed a lack of excitement and results from their planned freediving and spearfishing event. Frankly, they were a little cold and not seeing much in 15 to 20 feet depths south of the Marquesas.As they rolled back in the center console the seventh or eighth time out of what they called the empty cold depths of the normally fertile western waters of the Florida Keys I said, Lets go offshore and find the little green monsters. I had the boat loaded with excess bait and rods from the prior days charter so we were ready to make the wiggle.My plan was to find a school of dolphin for my spearfishermen. Rolling out to 600 feet of water was less than seven miles from our last dive; within 15 minutes, we were in the zone. Dolphin fishing was at a fevered pitch offshore of Key West, which is normal and something we all anticipate with smiles every May, so confidence was high. All I needed was one school of fish to get these guys going.The higher-speed artificials were ready to go. The first batch of birds were doing exactly what birds do when they are working a school of dolphin. They were circling, dipping and moving slowly around the weed patches, forcing our confidence factor past cocky. Laying out the baits was quick and all four were bubbling salt in perfect unison. One, two, three and then the fourth rod bent. Two clients and four rods doubled meant an unmanned helm, one motor in gear and slowly turning to starboard routine was in order, allowing me to help the boys in the chaos. The fish were from 22 inches to just over 30 inches, so we deemed the deck only in controlled chaos.The first fish was brought close to the boat and the rod was set in the mid-ship starboard holder as the dolphin swam with the boat. The second rod was set in the next holder, with now two fish swimming next to us. Adding two more would make the school complete.Four dolphin swimming next to the boat at staggered lengths made a small school that kept the other fish around. I yelled, Grab your gear and go swimming with the school! My crew didnt jump quite as quick as I thought they would. Spearfishing in the deep blue has always been one of my favorite pastimes and I just naturally assumed everyone would love it just as much. Waters and Ferguson had always been in the water where they could see the bottom; only on rare occasions had they been in the abyss. At 70 years old, Waters was the first to jump, followed shortly by the younger Ferguson. The whole attitude changed as the spearfisherman slid through the fertile blue water and within minutes, Don was back at the boat with a perfect shot on a nice-sized and manageable dolphin. The little green monsters saved the day.Dolphin in MayHead south past the reef looking for birds with, special consideration at the 350-foot and 650-foot ledges. Watch for terns birds or frigates that circle and move at a throttled speed. The fast birds are usually on tuna.Run all artificials tight to the transom extending out past your white water and have jigs as pitch baits for easy catch-andrelease, with a bag of majua (small baits) at the ready to keep the school close.Approach the circling birds and pay special attention as they start to head toward the lures. You may catch a glimpse of the dolphin as they come into your spread.After the first fish eats and the rod bends, keep the boat moving forward so the other rods can join in.Leave the first fish in the water and if you can, leave a few extra (one is cool but four is a school). Tossing handfuls of majua keeps them eating. Dolphin fishing in the Keys is a pleasure and readily available above the water and below the water, allowing you more time with family and friends on the water. Capt.
