WWW.KEYSNET.COM WEDNESDAY,JUNE 26,2013 VOLUME 60,NO.51 25 CENTS Into the sunsetA huge sendoff is planned for retired Islamorada Fire Chief William Wagner III on Friday.Story, 2A Sister actTwo Miami sisters are simultaneously arrested for drunk driving the same car in the Lower Keys.Story, 3A Court strikes down Section 5In a marked victory for conservatives and Southern states, a divided Supreme Court on Tuesday struck down a centerpiece of the 1965 Voting Rights Act that governs the Florida Keys. In one of the most highly anticipated decisions of the term, the courts conservatives united for a 5-4 decision that concluded times have changed since Congress first wrote the groundbreaking voting rights laws. The ruling, which overturns the laws Section 5, frees certain states and local jurisdictions from the necessity of getting Justice Department approval for electoral revisions. There is no denying that the conditions that originally justified these measures no longer characterize voting in the covered jurisdictions, Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. wrote for the majority. Under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, designated states and local jurisdictions must secure Justice Department approval before they change any voting practice or procedure. Called preclearance, this can cover everything from buying new voting machines and closing polling places to requiring photo IDs and shifting district boundaries. For example, the city of Key West needed to get federal approval earlier this year to change how the terms of its City Commission are staggered. It also was needed when voters were asked if they wanted a School Boardhired superintendent to replace the elected superintendent model. Section 5 applies to jurisdictions where past voting practices were determined to be discriminatory.

The Southern Association of College and Schools Commission on Colleges notified FKCC of the status Monday, to be followed in July with a formal letter.SACS Commission on Colleges President Belle Wheelan told the Keynoter a warning indicates that this is important; pay attention to it.Wheelan said the college would have up to two years to come into compliance with commission policies before the commission would consider a move to probation status. Were warning them if they dont take care of them soon, they could be in more serious trouble with us, she said.The ultimate penalty would be losing accreditation, which would sever access to federal financial aid and tell the community, If I were you, I wouldnt invest in this institution. It also wouldnt allow students to transfer credits to universities.In 2012, SACS conducted an extensive review of the colleges finances and operations, resulting in a decade-long reaccreditation. That essentially affirms the legitimacy of an educational institution.During the reaccreditation process, a SACS committee identified a broad need, in a July 2012 letter, for FKCC to demonstrate that it exercises appropriate control over all its financialAccreditation agency issues warningstatusBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEYS COMMUNITY COLLEGEHammer comes down on partiersTailgate parties, food vendors and staggering amounts of garbage dont belong on one of the Florida Keysmost scenic stretches of U.S 1, say Islamorada residents and visitors.Indian Key Fill, a threemile stretch of manmade islands with vistas of the Atlantic Ocean and Florida Bay, now draws large weekend crowds who sometimes, block views and bicycle paths.Cleanup crews tasked with keeping the areas roadside clean find themselves overwhelmed, Islamorada Public Works Director John Sutter said Tuesday. This has been going on for years but its steadily gotten worse, Sutter said. After one of these weekend-long parties, our crews might be there two or three days just to pick up the trash, he said. They still cant get it all. Its become unmanageable.State and local agencies met Tuesday to outline a plan to increase no-parking enforcement in areas, and replace rip-rap boulders that were moved from the shoreline to create illegal boat ramps for personal watercraft.The intent is not to close the Fill off but limit uses for what the area can handle, Sutter said. Right now were seeing three miles of waterfront recreation where people seem to have no regard for the impacts on the shorelines, environment and bike paths plus the tremendous amount of trash, he said. Our citizens are disgusted.Indian Key Fill connects Upper Matecumbe Key to Lower Matecumbe Key.

In March, the City Commission OKd spending $631,000 to buy some 13,000 wheeled 65-gallon recycling carts that will replace the familiar 18-gallon green bins. The carts will be disturbed citywide from July 15 to July 27, according to city spokeswoman Alyson Crean. That will be followed on July 29 with a switch to whats called a 1-1-1 pickup system, meaning there will be separate curbside pickup of recyclables, household trash and yard waste, but all on the same day. You can keep your trash cans. No third bin is needed for yard waste; use other trash cans for that.

were not printed in Spanish. Section 5 covers Monroe and four other Florida counties, as well as some local jurisdictions in California, North Carolina, Michigan, New Hampshire, New York and South Dakota. Nine states are covered in their entirety: Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Texas, Alaska, Arizona, Louisiana, Mississippi and Virginia. They struck it down but Congress could rewrite it, Monroe Elections Supervisor Joyce Griffin said Tuesday. I havent really read it because I was at the doctors. I called the [state] Division of Elections and theyre still reading it because its a huge document. I think in the past it had protected us.The law, though revised several times, pegs preclearance coverage in part to voting turnout or registration in the 1964, 1968 and 1972 elections.That doesnt make sense to me, using all of that old data, Griffin said.Shes also not sure if the language requirement for Keys ballots would remain: Would I have to still put Spanish on the ballot? I dont know.Tuesdays decision grew out of the case of Shelby County, Ala., vs. Attorney General Eric Holder after the Justice Department nullified a 2008 Calera (Ala.) City Council election because two years earlier, the county had changed district boundaries but didnt submit them for federal approval. Keynoter staff supplemented this report.Law relies on old dataFrom Voting,1A resources. That required a follow-up monitoring report, delivered by the college to SACS on April 15, outlining control procedures, including annual state audits, new personnel hires and regular review by the college board of trustees. FKCC President Jonathan Gueverra said this is a very disappointing set of circumstances for the college and we are taking it seriously. At the same time, I have confidence that we have pulled all of the correct levers over the last year. Unfortunately, the work we have accomplished was not given much or any consideration as the commission weighed its decision. There is still much to be done, but make no mistake, FKCC is fiscally sound and financially stable. The problems at the heart of the warning date back to a 2010 budget shortfall that saw widespread pay cuts, including then-President Larry Tyree taking a 50 percent salary cut.Then in March, the Florida Auditors General Office released an audit citing FKCC for a complicated inappropriate financial maneuver in which auditors concluded the college used restricted money to pay expenses incurred by the Campus Foundation direct-support organization, which runs the colleges 100bed dorm.To cover the $789,000 in college money sent to the foundation, the college inappropriately used Public Education Capital Outlay funds to balance out the cost, the Auditor Generals Office concluded.More serious troublepossibleFrom FKCC,1A land came down to a developer fee of $1.3 million up front, with a potential for an additional $900,000 after 10 or 15 years of operation. Commissioners Teri Johnston, Clayton Lopez and Tony Yaniz voted against the developer fee in a specially called Monday night session. Since a 5-2 City Commission super-majority didnt pass it, the proposal failed and killed the plan. Ed Swift, who serves on the Assisted Care Coalition board, said the coalition will assist and continue to pursue assisted care in Key West. As of [Tuesday] morning, there are meetings going on with Manny Castillo. Castillo is executive director of the Housing Authority. He told commissioners his five-member board has not had formal discussions about utilizing their vacant land for senior housing. I will bring it back to the board in July, he said. Ill apprise the whole board of what has been going on and well sit back and wait.He made clear that the Housing Authority isnt interested in operating assisted living units, which are associated with round-the-clock access to nursing care and other specialized services.Weve never done any assisted living. Were still not interested in operating an assisted-living facility. We do independent but an operator can come in, he said. Mayor Craig Cates and Commissioner Jimmy Weekley pointed out that if a project were developed on Kennedy, thered still be a developer fee.Nobody is going to invest $30 million and not make any money, Cates said. Thats not how it works. The facility is needed.City Planner Don Craig said the Housing Authority site could work.New Town now targetedFrom Assisted,1Asmall paved areas near history markers. Parking anywhere else on the Fill, entirely owned by the Florida Department of Transportation, is technically illegal.Efforts are under way to install more no-parking signs so Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputies can write citations.The situation angered Lower Matecumbe Key residents when spillover from Indian Key Fill extended south to Sea Oats Beach, a strip of protected oceanfront near mile marker 74, on Mothers Day weekend last month.Cars parked along the berm and increased foot traffic have damaged restored plantings on the beach a confirmed nesting site for sea turtles. Foot traffic on the berm, as well as the increasing numbers of beach-goers, endanger nesting sea turtles and shorebirds that stop on their migration route, said Donna Gleason, president of the Lower Matecumbe Key Association.The berms and the plantings also safeguard the lowest section of U.S. 1 from flooding and erosion, Sutter said.After Mothers Day, there was a worry that Memorial Day might bring a huge crowd that would do damage that could not be undone, Sutter said. DOTauthorized a line of construction-warning signs to prevent parking at Sea Oats Beach. The barriers are still there and will stay until new signs designed not to damage the areas vista are installed. The temporary barricades, while not pretty, have been working as intended, Gleason said. Sutter said visual aesthetics also will be a priority in improvement efforts at Indian Key Fill. Nobody wants to see a black fence like the one on the [18-Mile] Stretch, Sutter said. We need enough no-parking signage to allow enforcement, but we dont want terrible sign clutter, either. In a way, were a victim of the wonderful place we have, Sutter said. It is so beautiful that people want to be here. But we also have a stewardship responsibility.

John Hermann, president of the Islamorada Firefighters Benevolent Association, said the ceremony will kick off at 4 p.m. Wagner, 52, started his fire-service career as an explorer with the Conch Key Volunteer Fire Department in 1976. In 1998, he was hired as Monroe Countys deputy fire marshal. When Islamorada incorporated in 1998, he was hired as the first chief. Wagner served a dual role as village fire chief and chief of Marathon Fire Rescue from 2008 to 2011. Islamorada Village Manager Ed Koconis said hes prepared to name Assistant Fire Chief Terry Abel to the top spot.ISLAMORADABoard recommends $1.75 millionGroups serving Florida Keys people in need have been recommended to receive shares of $1.75 million in Monroe Countys budget for the coming fiscal year. The 29 requests from nonprofit organizations endorsed by the countys Human Services Advisory Board include food pantries and various programs for medical assistance, homelessness, rehabilitation and education.

Monroe County Sheriffs Office Deputy Darnell Durham should be on his best behavior if he plans to remain in law enforcement.The 36-year-old was suspended two weeks without pay on June 11 for his involvement in a Feb. 18 road-rage incident on the 18Mile Stretch and a separate March 3 run-in with Key Largo resident Eric Cash. Durham was also ordered to attend remedial training in preliminary investigations and writing arrest reports, as well as attend anger management counseling because the incidents occurred in close proximity to one another.Deputy Kyle Page, 43, was also suspended two days on June 11 for his role in the 18-Mile Stretch incident in which the two deputies got into it with other motorists. Page and Durham were off duty, riding personal motorcycles when they allege a white pickup truck cut them off. Durham is accused of kicking the pickup when it wouldnt stop. The punishments were handed down by Col. Bill Cameron after he reviewed lengthy Internal Affairs reports on the incidents. Agency spokeswoman Becky Herrin said Durham and Page have yet to serve their suspensions. Thats usually determined by the commander of the district based on when they can spare him, she said. Both are Upper Keys deputies. Several witnesses disputed the deputiesaccount of what happened on the Stretch, and they were cited by the Florida Highway Patrol for reckless driving. Durham was also charged by troopers with criminal mischief for kicking a truck drivers door, and filing a false police report.According to the Internal Affairs report, one witness photographed Durham passing her car speeding on the southbound shoulder around 6 p.m. and another shot cellphone video of it.Troopers ultimately pulled the deputies over.The Homestead residents were scheduled for trial in Miami-Dade traffic court on May 14 but Judge Luise Krieger-Martin granted a continuance on June 20. No new court dates are scheduled.Durham was on duty during the March 3 incident with Cash in Key Largo.Cash, 32, claimed Durham used excessive force while arresting him for resisting arrest, that Durham punched him in the face during transport and was doing so because Cash called Durhams supervisor while he was responding to a call at his Key Largo home.Durham and Deputy Matt ONeill responded to Cashs apartment during a dispute between Cash and his neighbor, Cyndia Ramos.

Various areas of the city now have different pickup days for trash and recycling materials. The change to one day a week, staggered over the five weekdays, adds the yard waste, which now goes into the waste stream. In response to concerns from residents about trash becoming smelly after sitting in the can longer than usual, the city suggests using odorcontrol trash bags, can deodorizers, ground cinnamon, baking soda, charcoal briquettes, kitty litter or dryer sheets in the new bins Commissioner Jimmy Weekley suggested, particularly with things like fish carcasses and shrimp hulls, sticking the material in your freezer until the appointed collection day. The citys residential recycling rate has lingered around 7 percent for all solid waste collected, around 60,000 tons per year, the past five years.All the changes to recycling policy and infrastructure are the result of a solidwaste master plan adopted by the City Commission last August. Tampa-based Kessler Consulting, contracted in 2010 to conduct the $379,000 study, prepared the analysis and recommendations.The carts are being purchased through a piggyback contract with Deerfield Beach from Californiabased manufacturer Rehrig Pacific Co.Each cart will have a tracking chip that associates that cart with a particular address and, down the road, could be used to monitor each households recycling rate, paving the way for incentive and penalty programs.Citys recycle rate just 7 percentFrom Recycle,1ATwo deputies are suspendedBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comLAW ENFORCEMENT Sisters arrested forDUIIts not easy for two people to get arrested for driving the same car drunk at one time.Unless, of course, police attempt to pull one driver over and instead of pulling over, that driver stops in the middle of U.S. 1 and switches seats with a passenger in plain view of a Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputy and his in-car camera.Thats exactly what the Sheriffs Office says Miami sisters Vanessa Miranda, 24, and Steffany, Miranda, 18, did around 10:50 p.m. Saturday. Both were booked into the Monroe County Detention Center, simultaneously charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.Steffany declined to submit to a breath test, while Vanessas two tests indicated she had blood alcohol levels of .127 and .129 percent. In Florida, the legal limit for being drunk is a blood alcohol content of 0.8 percent Even though she was not driving the Volkswagen prior to the traffic stop, by switching seats with Steffany and sitting on the drivers seat, [Vanessa] was in actual physical control of the Volkswagen as it was running and on a travel lane of U.S. 1, Deputy Juan MartinReyes wrote in his report.According to MartinReyesreport, the deputy saw the original driver, Steffany, swerving and accelerating and decelerating suddenly near mile marker 23 on U.S. 1.Martin-Reyes followed the red Volkswagen sedan for roughly seven miles before putting on his lights to stop the car. According to the report, the car immediately came to a stop in the lane of traffic and Martin-Reyes saw the sisters switch seats. They denied it when initially questioned, he said. The girls also initially denied drinking alcohol before admitting they did so earlier that night on a reggae boat in Key West.Because they both appeared impaired and both had been behind the wheel with the car running, the sisters were asked to perform field sobriety tests. They failed, the deputy wrote, and were arrested for DUI.Deputy says both drunk, switched seatsBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comLOWER KEYS S.MIRANDA V.MIRANDAFew answers at risk discussionThe need for Citizens Property Insurance Corp. to balance wind insurance rates with the reality of stormhardened construction in Monroe County was highlighted with a Monday forum sponsored by the Key West Chamber of Commerce.The session at the Casa Marina Resort included Christine Ashburn, Citizens director of legislative and external affairs; Keys state Rep. Holly Raschein (R-Key Largo); state Sen. Dwight Bullard (D-Miami); Insurance Consumer Advocate Robin Westcott from Floridas Chief Financial Officers Office; and Jay Neal, executive director of the Florida Association for Insurance Reform.All of the panelists, speaking at a question-and-answer session moderated by Heather Carruthers, a county commissioner and former president of Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe, earlier in the day toured a number of local homes, some historic, that had undergone renovations aimed at mitigating storm damage. Youre doing things that are just way beyond the rest of the state, Westcott said, and were not giving you credit for it. She said mitigation efforts undertaken by homeowners are not being timely fed into computer models that determine rate structures. Campbell Cawood, the first member of the audience to address the panel, said Citizensgoal is to eliminate risk, not mitigate it. I think insurance companies have to take some risk. Thats insurance 101. Mitigation can take several forms, from having a metal roof with straps holding it to the homes support beams to elevating a home far higher than the sea level to installing hurricane-resistant windows. The rate calculations havent translated what we as Floridians have done to fortify our homes, Westcott said. Were not seeing that result in our insurance rates many times. Ashburn agreed the data collection and monitoring process is a work in progress and said Citizensgoal is to get you the right price for the right risk.Wind insurance is a predicate for a bank mortgage and Citizens is the only carrier that writes policies in Monroe.Despite the consensus that the states risk models dont accurately reflect conditions on the ground in Monroe, no one spoke specifically to what steps are needed to change that. The process needs to be fixed, Neal said, adding that rate stabilization is a product of mitigation. Weve got to figure out how to make that problem work. Asked by a resident if Citizens maintains a $6.5 billion war chest, Ashburn said, Its more like $6.3 billion. But if we have the big one hit, it would cost us $20 billion. We dont have enough money in the bank. We could be broke if Hurricane Andrew hit tomorrow. That money could be gone in the blink of an eye.State admits Keys do well in mitigationBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comWINDSTORM INSURANCE Key West plans to switch from a twice-weekly waste pickup to a 1-1-1 program,with one day per week set aside for trash,yard waste and recycling.This map shows what area gets pickup on what day.

Emily Watson, 18, of Islamorada suffered scrapes and abrasions after being knocked to the road in the 7:05 a.m. incident. Watson told troopers that she was skateboarding in the northbound lane of the county road, near mile marker 82.9, when a silver Toyota Camry pulled out of a driveway and struck her as the car made a wide right turn to the right, entering the northbound lane while going south. The car fled the scene and was last seen driving south on U.S. 1, the FHP reported. Watson was treated and released from Mariners Hospital.

Afew years ago, I lived in Sanford and was appointed to serve on a board by the city. The town is lovely by day; the historical downtown so charming it was the setting for the movie My Girl. At night, it is another story when the thieves come out.You must lock up everything you own, park your car behind a fence and chain down any holiday decorations. The teens riding bicycles wearing hoodies are not waving as they pass you; they are flashing hand signals representing drug prices. You cannot run to the store after dark, or walk the dog, or rent a movie; it is too darn dangerous.I do not approve of what George Zimmerman did, but I do understand how it happened. Having lived in Sanford, I can say that if I saw a teen boy in a hoodie after dark walking behind houses, I would be afraid he was up to no good. His color would have nothing to do with it.My question to Trayvon Martins family: Why would you send an out-ofcontrol teen to a town with complicated racial issues? Sadly, it was a decision for disaster. To Zimmerman, I suggest if he does not go to jail or when he gets out if he does, he moves to Antarctica. Carol L.

Fed by artificially low, actuarially unsound rates, Citizens has grown into Floridas largest property insurer and put the 77 percent of non-Citizens homeowners, plus all businesses, charities, religious institutions, local governments and school boards, at risk. Should a large storm or series of storms hit Florida, hurricane tax assessments will be imposed on all Florida policyholders, whether they are insured by Citizens or not. These taxes would extend to other types of policies, too, including automobile and renters. Recent moves by the Citizens board of governors to transfer policies to the private market will significantly diminish the risk of these assessments. The responsible decision was made to depopulate Citizens by putting plans in place to transfer policies to the private sector. Many of these are among the highest-risk policies in some of the most hurricane-exposed areas of the state. This is a positive step forward that the Associated Industries of Florida hopes will signal the beginning of a broader movement toward returning Citizens to an insurer of last resort. Every policy we move from Citizens back into the private property insurance market means a reduced threat of hurricane taxes levied on Florida businesses. Depopulating Citizens through fair and transparent mechanisms makes perfect sense for the state, but its not the only fiscally sound possibility to reduce risks. Citizens should continue to expand its investment in risk transfer, shifting its risk away from the state and our taxpayers and into the global private markets. Citizens buys less reinsurance, on a proportional basis, of any state residual market entity, and its unfunded sister entity, the Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund, is unique in buying none. These purchases benefit Floridians by reducing the risk of hurricane taxes, and benefits Citizens beneficiaries by increasing the certainty that their claims will be paid. Florida needs to explore every viable option for the inevitable day when disaster strikes again. We have been fortunate these past seven hurricane seasons and have dodged the proverbial bullet, but luck is not a plan and will inevitably run out. Continued depopulation of Citizens, rapid implementation of the Citizens policy clearinghouse established by the Legislature and approved by Gov. Rick Scott and continued investment on risk transfer is the best hurricane-preparedness strategy for our state. Thomas C. Feeney III President and CEO Associated Industries of Florida, TallahasseeThanks for the honorOn Memorial Day, God shed his tears for our departed veterans. Despite inclement weather, our dedicated color guard from American Legion Post 154 held ceremonies on Big Pine Key and in Marathon. Our family had requested the legion fly our flag in honor of Bill Tout, who served in World War II, was a life member and past commander of James Coleman VFWPost 6802 and a 17-year resident of Marathon. It was indeed an honor to have them fulfill our request. Many thanks to those men and women who so generously gave of their time and stood in pouring rain to perform their patriotic duty. God bless them all. Jean, Jack, Candy Scott, Ryan, Tessa ToutReflect during Flag DayThank you to the color guard, children, officers and friends of Elks Lodge 2139 for presenting a beautiful Flag Day service for our community. These are the special times in the year we have to help share with our youth about our heritage, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We as adults must always take these opportunities to help educate our youths about our values and true meaning of what it means to be an American. Again, thanks to the Elks for helping us celebrate Flag Day with honor. Linda Lee Byars MarathonU.S. should allow all Americans to travel to Cuba to plant seeds of democracy, free marketThere is a quick way for our nation to help overwhelm Cubas censorship and propaganda. Simply allow Americans the most effective ambassadors for democracy and free enterprise to travel more easily to Cuba. Having more Americans visit Cuba would almost surely boost capitalism in a country that is cautiously experimenting with property rights and private enterprise. This can be done without the political firefight of eliminating the 50-year-old Cuban embargo, which greatly restricts trade and travel to Cuba. We think the embargo no longer serves a useful purpose. Indeed, it gives the Cuban government a scapegoat for its failed economic policies. As John Caulfield, chief of Mission of the U.S. Interests Section in Havana, says, Cubas financial woes are a result of Cubas choice of an economic model. But eliminating the embargo or allowing unrestricted travel to Cuba will require congressional approval, a political challenge. In contrast, President Obama, by executive order, can require general licenses be issued for all approved travel to Cuba. Americans now can receive a visa to travel for such specific purposes as education and cultural studies. These trips must be guided by licensed travel services that are required to follow a strict agenda. Everything is tightly regulated by the Treasury Departments Office of Foreign Assets Control to ensure there are no violations of the sanctions against Cuba. (Cuban-Americans appropriately have no restrictions on traveling to visit family.)The approval process for the specific visas can be cumbersome and time-consuming. Obtaining a general license is far less complicated, so expanding its use would eliminate red tape and diminish barriers to travel.The Cold War is over and the Soviet Union is gone. Cuba remains an authoritarian state, but its grip seems to be slipping. That control would be further eroded should Americans be allowed to spread the seeds of capitalism and freedom in a country whose people badly need them. Tampa TribuneEnd of a firefighting eraAFlorida Keys era has come to an end, as Islamorada Fire Chief William Wagner III has retired after more than three decades in Monroe Countys fire service.Seems there has always been a Wagner in an emergency-management position in the Keys.

Experience has taught us the best thing to do before a hurricane is prepare so you can be confident during a storm that youve done everything possible to keep your family safe. As the Key West police chief, I want you to know that during a hurricane (the sixmonth hurricane season started June 1), you can depend on the resilience and resourcefulness of the men and women of the Key West Police Department.As a local law enforcement agency, we work year-round with our local, county, state and federal partners to improve our response, cooperation and communication during hurricanes. Just as we at the Key West Police Department plan for unexpected weather emergencies, there is plenty you can do to ensure yourself, your family and your home is ready for hurricane season. Dont wait for a storm to threaten. First, create a disaster supply kit that will last your family at least seven days.Ask yourself what you would need if you couldnt get to a grocery store, pharmacy, bank or gas station for seven days. Your kit should include a gallon per person per day of water, nonperishable food, a can opener, blankets and pillows, rain gear and sturdy shoes, first-aid items, prescription drugs, toiletries, a flashlight and batteries, a battery-operated radio, a fully charged cell phone as well as a non-cordless phone.Pack any special food, medicines or supplies you might need for an infant, an elderly person or a pet. Make sure you have credit cards and cash on hand and gas in your vehicle. Put all of your important documents such as insurance and medical records, bank account numbers and your Social Security card in a waterproof container or waterproof plastic bag.Probably the most important thing you can do now is to make your family plans for what you will do if an evacuation is called for. Make sure you have considered several destination locations, because storm paths can vary. If you have pets, be sure that any motels or hotels youll be staying in welcome animals. Have your important documents in one place thats easy to grab and throw in the car. Keep the car gassed up and in good running condition. As you review your evacuation plan, try to account for any contingency. Do you need to carry cash? Do you have a good supply of medicines and any personal goods that might be difficult to buy on a moments notice? Most importantly, listen to the experts. If an evacuation is called, go. When an evacuation is called, the only safe option is to heed the authorities and leave the Keys for a safe haven on the mainland. Talk to your family about which place in your home would be the safest during a storm and at what point you would move to a shelter. Plan what to do with your pets if you have to evacuate and designate an out-of-state relative or friend to be a point of contact for each family member after a storm. Make sure children know when and how to call 911.Protect windows and glass doors with hurricane shutters. If you use plywood, make sure the pieces are fastened adequately so they dont become dangerous airborne debris during a storm. The Key West Police Department is prepared to help you and your family in any emergency, but I encourage you to create a disaster supply kit and talk to your family about your emergency plan.On behalf of everyone at the Key West Police Department, I wish you and your family the safest possible hurricane season. Donie Lee Jr. is chief of the Key West Police Department.GUEST COLUMNDont take hurricane season lightly LEE 40 apply forcomptrollerIt appears Florida Keys Mosquito Control District Director Michael Doyle will be busier than usual during this summers 2013-14 budget season. Adiscussion on the possibility of hiring a third-party accounting firm in the wake of longtime Comptroller William Southcotts retirement was pulled from Mondays special Mosquito Control Board meeting. Doyle proposed the idea last week because hes concerned with a short timetable to replace Southcott, whos gone at the end of the month after more than 24 years. At this point, the third party is effectively out unless we just dont find [a qualified Southcott replacement]. It seems like a pretty strong pool of candidates so Im pretty confident, Doyle said. He told the board he plans to cull the list of roughly 40 applicants to three or four by the end of this week and begin to schedule interviews. The hope is to have a comptroller in place by the end of July, he said. For the third-party option, Doyle put out a request for proposals and received 15month contract bids from local accounting firms Bishop & Rosasco Co. and Pribramsky & Zuelch for $180,000 and $90,000, respectively.Theres a strong possibility that Southcott could return to the district as a consultant to help with this years budget.After he leaves, hes going to propose to come back maybe one day per week. The process is very specific, Doyle said. Even for a CPA, [the state has unusual requirements, so I want to make sure we get it right.Southcott formed a corporation called Black Dog Enterprises and Consulting LLC that he plans to use for business ventures after leaving the district. There was consideration to consider hiring Black Dog on last weeks board meeting agenda but it was pulled until Southcott officially retires.Health careCommissioner Phil Goodman told the board he plans to reintroduce a proposal this budget season requiring district employees to pay $25 monthly toward health insurance benefits. He floated the same plan in January, but the board voted unanimously to postpone it until this summers budget talks. Goodman originally proposed a $50 monthly contribution.Board decides against hiring 3rd-party firmBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROLBug-board expenses going upAseemingly inevitable move off its longtime College Road headquarters on Stock Island dominated discussion Monday at the opening workshop of the Florida Keys Mosquito Control Boards fiscal year 2013-14 budget season. The district has been holding out hope that the city of Key West will reconsider plans to send it packing off city-owned land in favor of a 24-hour homeless shelter. Its 35-year, $1-per-year lease ends in May 2014. But a tentative $2.4 million capital outlay, from just $90,050 in the current budget, is a clear indication they arent expecting that to happen. The money would be earmarked for buying a Lower Keys lot to build an operations building. The budget introduced Monday is preliminary and only rolled out because of a July 15 deadline to submit an estimated budget with the state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. That being said, the $2.4 million capital outlay and a $486,468 increase in day-today operations, from $10.27 million to $10.75 million, would equal a yet-to-bedetermined tax increase for Keys property owners.Mosquito Control District Director Michael Doyle told the board the operating budget increase is due mainly to a $300,000 increase in operating expenses for a new computer database system and $240,000 worth of overhauls to several district aircraft.People see the inspectors typing on handheld PDAs, he told the Keynoter. Were replacing that whole system with an improved database system that will cut down on travel and make the helicopters more efficient because theyll be able to draw a shape on a map where they can spray.Overall, the total increase in operating expenditures from the current year to 2013-14 would be $2.79 million, up from $10.36 million to $13.14 million. As presented, a .5497 tax rate would raise $10.5 million in property tax revenue for the district in 2013-14. That rate is preliminary and was not adopted by the board on Monday.Even with a tax rate generating $10.5 million, the district would fall well short of covering $13.14 million in expenses. It would dip heavily into reserves to cover the move from Stock Island.The building is the main thing, Commissioner Jill Cranney-Gage said. To relocate is a huge expense thats in the budget. ...IT system, capital funds are the reasonsBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROL
Floridas unemployment rate dipped to 7.1 percent in May, the lowest it has been since September 2008, indicating the state continues to recover from a jobless mark that peaked at 12 percent in late 2010. Even though the unemployment mark in Monroe County grew by .2 percent from April, the South Florida county that includes the Florida Keys continued to have the lowest jobless rate in the state at 4 percent. Hendry County, at 11.1 percent unemployment, up from 10 percent in April, has the highest number in the state and is the only county in double digits for joblessness. The statewide seasonally adjusted May figure, down from 7.2 percent in April, comes despite nearly every county in Florida showing an uptick in its unemployment numbers. County totals are not seasonally adjusted. Non-seasonal numbers put Floridas unemployment at 7.0 percent, with 658,000 out of work, an increase from 638,000 in April. With seasonally adjusted figures, the state records 671,000 out of work, down from 682,000 in April, according to the Department of Economic Opportunity.

Islamorada, Florida305.664.8900John EsslingerState Certified General Contractor www.islandvillageneralcontractor.com Banks fall short with homeownersHomeowners trying to avoid foreclosure must wait too long for their loan modification applications to be reviewed by some of the nations top mortgage servicers, according to a report released Wednesday. Such delays can plunge borrowers deeper in debt. Joseph A. Smith Jr., the independent monitor of last years national mortgage settlement, said that while the banks are doing a better job complying with new mortgage servicing rules, more needs to be done. It is clear to me that the servicers have additional work to do both in their efforts to fully comply with the [settlement] and to regain their customerstrust, Smith wrote in the report.Smith, whose office conducted 29 performance tests on how five of the largest U.S. mortgage servicers are meeting the new rules, said the banks need to do a better job collecting customer records and notifying borrowers in a timely manner about decisions on their applications, including when there are any missing documentsThe banks should also provide borrowers with a knowledgeable and helpful person as a single point of contact to make it easier for applicants to keep track of their request, Smith said. Most of the nearly 60,000 complaints Smiths office had received in recent months were related to the lack of a single point of contact at the mortgage servicer for borrowers. The banks are working to correct the problems and will be tested later on to check their progress, Smith said. The settlement among 49 states, federal government agencies and lenders JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Citigroup and ResCap Parties (formerly Ally Financial and GMAC) set new rules for how banks handle troubled home loans and provided for up to $25 billion in financial relief to homeowners. The standards prohibit the lenders from pursuing foreclosure while negotiating a loan modification. They require the banks to acknowledge in writing a refinancing application within three business days, notify the borrower of any missing documents within five days and make a decision on a complete application within 30 days.Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan said Smiths report showed four of the five banks tested consistently failed to send notices and communicate decisions to homeowners in a timely manner. ResCap Parties was the exception among the five banks, the report said.ResCap Parties was subject to a February bankruptcy court order that split up and transferred the servicing rights and assets to Ocwen Financial Corp., Green Tree Servicing, and Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Donovan said delays by mortgage servicers can put homeowners at risk of either falling behind or losing their homes. They were the same kinds of lending practices that contributed to the foreclosure crisis, he added. This is unacceptable, Donovan said. The homeowners who have experience servicing abuse deserve justice and we wont stop until that justice is served. Donovan said if the problems persist, fines and court action are possible remedies. JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America and Citigroup each said in statements that they had either corrected problems cited in the report or were working with Smith to correct them. The settlement helped close a difficult chapter of the financial crisis when home values sank and millions edged toward foreclosure. Many firms had processed foreclosures without verifying documents. The agreement reduces mortgage debt for only a fraction of those whose mortgages are underwater. About 11 million U.S. households are underwater, and the settlement is expected to help about a million of them.The servicers reported distributing $50.63 billion in direct relief, including loan modifications and principal reductions, to more than 620,000 homeowners through the settlement, according to a report by Smith last month.Missing papers, no contacts among bigger complaintsBy ANDREW MIGAAssociated PressREAL ESTATE Presenting a $2,262.84 check to the American Cancer Societys Keys unit on June 19 are (from left) Marathon Winn-Dixie Store Director Walter Echols,Key West Winn-Dixie Store Director Drew Barbour,Cancer Society Keys unit Executive Director Carrie Helliesen and Winn-Dixie District Director Jorge Cabo.The money is from a Keys Winn-Dixies six-week customer donation program that ran from Feb.20 to April 2.WINN-DIXIES COME THROUGHKeys have lowest jobless rateMonroe stands at 4 percent in unemploymentNews Service of FloridaTHE WORKPLACE BUSINESS BRIEFSLeadership social is FridayLeadership Monroe County begins recruitment for its upcoming Class 21 on Friday at the Westin Resort & Marina, 230 Front St., Key West, from 5 to 7:30 in Salons A& B.Community leaders in the private and public sectors are invited to learn about the program, which seeks to build relationships for constructive alliances throughout the Florida Keys.

Aonline Harris Poll conducted last month, before the Memorial Day fire aboard Royal Caribbean Internationals Grandeur of the Seas showed that perceived quality, trust and purchase intent had declined compared to a post-Triumph poll. Compared to results of the survey taken between Feb. 19 and 21, which showed a drop from preincident perception levels, perceived quality across seven brands has dropped 6 percent while trust declined 5 percent and purchase intent is down 5 percent. Carnival has suffered the worst drop, according to Harris Interactive. Perceived quality of the Miami-based cruise line has dropped 12 percent since the poll conducted days after the Triumph limped back to shore. Trust dropped 11 percent in the same time period, and purchase intent was down 8 percent. Miami Herald Business KEY SN E T.CO M

There will be increased patrols and boater education outreach.Impaired boaters, if caught, can expect to be arrested or face other penalties. In Everglades National Park, the consequences for boating under the influence includes fines up to $5,000 and up to six months in jail. Said Everglades National Park Superintendent Dan Kimball: You will see our officers from Key Largo and Flamingo out on the water in Florida Bay, and from our Gulf Coast district in Everglades City, ensuring that everyone can enjoy a day of safe boating. They will be looking for boaters who are operating a vessel under the influence.

Work to install the main pipeline in the U.S. 1 median on Key Largo is going on now. The pipeline and drilling was approved as part of a $91 million joint project of Islamorada and the sewer district.No start date for the Tavernier Creek underwater drilling apparently the first of its kind in the Florida Keys was available from Islamorada utility officials or its contractors this week. Other underwater transmission mains are planned for waterways at Indian Key Channel, Tea Table Creek Channel, Snake Creek and Whale Harbor, according to project documents. Project engineers speaking to the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Council this spring said the drilling and 30-inch pipeline installation running through coral rock below channel waters should be less prone to failure than pipelines running through bridges or beneath bridges. Members of the sanctuary council questioned pipeline engineers and consultants about the possibility of mud from the drilling affecting water quality.That would create a temporary turbidity problem, consultant Sandra Walters replied, but the mud is not toxic, according to meeting minutes.This drilling technology in Florida has a good track record and [planners are] confident that the contingency plan and procedures will go smoothly, according to sanctuary council minutes. Engineer Don Eckler described the directional drilling operation as similar to drilling oil wells going horizontally instead of vertically. In this process, a hole is drilled in from one island and run under the channel and comes up on the adjacent island, a summary says. Then pipeline is pulled through the hole.Pipeline will connect village and Key LargoUPPER KEYSKeynoter StaffNEWS BRIEFSSupremes rule for homeowner on landIn a case that could have huge implications for the Keys, the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday backed a landowner in a nearly twodecade dispute about developing property near Orlando. Justices, in a 5-4 decision, overturned a Florida Supreme Court ruling in the battle between the estate of landowner Coy Koontz Sr., and the St. Johns River Water Management District. The case stemmed from Koontzs plan to develop 3.7 acres of land and the districts decision to deny wetland-related permits. Koontz, who died during the case, contended requests by the district during the permitting process amounted to an unconstitutional taking of his property. That argument centered on a proposal by the district that Koontz pay for improving wetlands on another site as a way to mitigate damage to his land. News Service of Florida

It ran from June 16 to 20.Marathon faced some stiff competition, including state Class-4Achampion Lake Highland Prep (Orlando), Class-3Arunner-up Coral Springs Charter, Gulliver Prep and Holy Trinity Academy (Melbourne). I talked to many coaches and they all said its the best team camp in the state of Florida. None of my guys had ever been to any team camp before and I thought it was a good idea, Marathon head coach Kevin Freeman said. The Dolphins finished 2-8 in a hectic schedule of 48minute games, played with a running clock, over four days. But they finished 4-1 (third place overall) in a two-minute game tournament, and junior-to-be Nelson Rojas was chosen from more than 300 players to play in the 24-member camp all-star game.There were a lot of stars with great talent and it was great experience for our team to come together, Rojas said.Rojas credited his Dolphin teammates with helping him be selected to play in the 50-minute (two 25-minute halves) all-star game. It was pretty crazy and exciting, he said. I owe it all to my teammates. I couldnt have done it without them. Rojas admitted he hadnt been on the court with that number of talented players in his young career. He finished with nine points (3-for-4 from three-point range) and one assist. Embry-Riddle is best known for its aeronautical curriculum, but its also home to a quality National Association of Intercollegiate Athletic basketball program that won a national championship in 2000. The Dolphins stayed in dorm rooms on the campus and the morning of June 17, worked on fundamentals at individual coaching stations. Ridder spoke to the camp that night.The next morning was the two-minute-game tournament in which Marathon played well. The teams start off 6060 with 2:00 on the clock, and each takes eight free throws to determine a starting score before beginning.The Dolphins went 7-for8 in their first game and finished 33-for-38 overall. Freeman said it was a welcome site to see the boys, who struggled at times from the line this season, stay composed and make shots. We ended up winning our bracket because we kept hitting free throw after free throw, he said. Rojas said the tournament taught the Dolphins a lesson about making free throws down the stretch in close games. It really helped us because we had the lead and a cushion, he said. We found out that free throws are what helps win games. The night of June 19, incoming senior Damian Chavez finished third overall in the three-point shooting competition. He hit 14 shots in the final round, while the winner hit 18. Junior Robi Garcia participated in the warrior competition, where players from different teams are tasked with taking a charge, setting a screen and diving on the floor for a loose ball. Freeman said he hopes to attend the camp again next summer. Individually, we represented Marathon well, he said.Rojas among 24 all-stars in DaytonaBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON HOOPSYou can be the Lebron of fishingFishing on the reef is as hot as the Miami Heat. Big mangrove snapper five pounds and greater are in 40 to 45 feet of water on the reef edge to spawn. Large chunk baits or small live baits presented on or near the bottom will attract them. Copious amounts of chum are imperative, as these fish are very aggressive and feeding heavily.The yellowtail snapper are hanging anywhere from 35 to 90 feet. The deeper you go, the bigger the fish. Small filleted baits, shrimp or pieces of ballyhoo will do the trick.The occasional mutton is mingled among the other snappers, but you cant really count on them right now. And there are still a few grouper on the reef. Choose large live baits, such as pinfish.The wrecks are holding amberjack and jack crevalle along with a few muttons. Live bait is key. There are plenty of dolphin offshore, but the majority wont make the mark on the measuring stick. Youll find them on weeds and under birds. Ive heard no reports of blackfin tuna. The dolphin and tuna fishing should improve once were past the full moon. In the bay, theres a good mangrove snapper bite on the banks, inshore wrecks and at the bridges. Lemon, blacktip and bull sharks are providing lots of entertainment on the banks, flats and at the bridges.The weeks bestGreg Nacron from Boca Raton caught four tarpon, including two over 100 pounds, with the biggest estimated at 125 pounds, while drifting blue crabs during the new-moon outgoing tides. He was fishing a night trip with Capt. Chuck Brodzki off Lower Matecumbe Key. Capt. Larry Bell and mate Alex Bell of Blue Magic Charters out of Keys Fisheries in Marathon took Zara Myers and family, from Central Florida, dolphin fishing, and they caught a dozen schoolies. Anight mangrove snapper trip with Zach Frey, from Palm Beach Gardens, produced 19 good-size fish.The SeaSquared crew did quite a few shark-fishing adventures last week, with all groups landing multiple lemon, blacktip and bull sharks. Fishing on the reef produced limit catches of very large mangrove snapper. And family fishing in the bay on breezier days was very productive for mangroves and sea trout. The Carter family, from Auburn, Ala., had an awesome day on the reef with Capt. Kevin Wilson and first mate Barbie of Knee Deep Charters in Geiger Key.Reid hooked something big and, clearing the lines, the rod went overboard. The captain dove in, saved the rod, and Reid reeled in a huge jack crevalle. Burt and Kyle released barracudas, and the group had five nice mangrove snapper for dinner.Capt. Moe Mottice, of Moes Custom Charters in Key West, caught dolphin up to 38 pounds on trolled ballyhoo. He reports the tarpon fishing in Key West Harbor has been incredible with loads of hookups and catches. And on the reef, the mangroves and yellowtails are keeping his anglers busy.Casting contestCapt. Spiders Casting for Charity returns Thursday to the 7 Mile Marina/Saltys Waterfront Grill at mile marker 47 bayside in Marathon. The contest runs from 7 to 9 p.m. (new summer hours) and will benefit the Marathon High School Maritime Scholarship Fund. Capt.

Living Sub crew to collect lionfishThe latest tool in the battle against Floridas alarming lionfish invasion will be deployed this week at Nova Southeastern Universitys Oceanographic Center in Port Everglades in Broward County.Thursday through Saturday, a five-person manned submersible called Antipodes will take scientists on a series of dives to study the growing lionfish population. The goal is to foster long-term collaboration among scientists to halt the unprecedented expansion of this invasive species.Antipodes, operated by OceanGate Inc., will utilize a high-powered prototype collection system to catch the fish for later study. The use of OceanGates submersible creates an opportunity for real-time scientific collaboration and observation of lionfish in areas below diver depth. The data collected during the dives will be made available to scientists and researchers across the country.The recent invasion of lionfish, a nonnative predator known for its venomous spines and dramatically increased Florida numbers, has created a serious threat to marine and reef ecosystems. The environmental impact could have direct implications on Floridas fishing and tourism industries.Industries such as recreational saltwater fishing on Floridas east coast generated 29,000 jobs and $3.3 billion in sales in 2011 alone, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.Hosted by Nova Southeastern University, the mission is supported by the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation and will conclude Saturday with a panel of experts on aquatic invasive species. Scientists will discuss the data and imagery captured during the expedition, as well as their first-hand observations.Following the summit, Chef Kareem Anguin from the Oceanaire Seafood Room in Miami will showcase some of the easiest and tastiest ways to cook lionfish to help promote commercial fishing of the species one possible solution to control the population.The opportunity to further current research with submersible dives beyond diver depths will offer much needed insight into the species, and bring science closer to a solution for control, said Richard Dodge, dean of Novas Oceanographic Center.Participating organizations include the Key Largobased Reef Environmental Education Foundation and the University of Miamis Abess Center and Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science.The media is invited to attend the June 29 conference.3-day goal is sharing informationPRNewswireON THE WATER This is the submersible to be used to collect lionfish.Lionfish have no known predators and destroy the reef because of their voracious eating habits.Sunglass choices colored by lensesIs seeing life through rose-colored sunglasses right for you? It might be if youre a fan of early-morning bike rides or live in a largely overcast climate which the Keys can have throughout the rainy summer season. Choosing summer shades is more than an issue of flattering frames. There are decisions to be made about the lenses, too, and there will only be more in the future. Things to think about: Are your sunglasses more for performance or fashion? (You dont necessarily need to choose.) Are you concerned about glare or definition? Do you want a curved lens that provides maximum coverage or a flatter one that allows more peripheral vision? Will gray, green or rose be a better match for your lifestyle? Each is best suited to handle particular conditions and activities.Lenses can affect and can enhance performance. Sports performance is the biggest category for shopping by lens color and treatments, and most fashion lenses are still browns and grays, says Justin Bazan, a Brooklyn, N.Y., optometrist and medical adviser for the Vision Council, a trade group for the optical industry. I can imagine it happening, though, that the tint options that have exploded in sports will soon come to fashion purchases.Roberto Vedovotto, chief executive officer of Safilo Group, parent company to sunglass brands Carrera, Smith Optics and Polaroid, and the licensing partner for designer labels Gucci, Dior and Marc Jacobs, agrees that its on the cusp. Customers, he says, are becoming more educated about ultraviolet light largely because of great strides in sunscreen use, and they are aware that the technology exists to improve sunglass lenses. People are very aware overall about protecting themselves from the sun. Educated consumers help us, adds Vedovotto. People who care about the lenses, they need they want perfect vision.That probably explains why athletes are the most demanding, says Bazan. For those people who are very competitive, theyll look for anything that gains an advantage.That means knowing when polarized lenses, which act as blinders to horizontal rays, make sense, and when they might not.Enthusiasts of water sports, including surfing and sailing, are Hobie Polarizeds most discerning shoppers. And when it comes to lenses, they want anti-reflective coatings, another coating to shed water and the evenness almost flatness of polarization, says Dustin Mora, senior product line manager.Polarization makes sense for many runners, beachgoers and drivers because it will reduce the glare of light coming from the water, road or sand, he explains. Theyre good for fishermen who need to see beneath the surface. Sammy Bryant, retail business developer for Adidas Eyewear, says golfers steer away from polarization because peripheral vision is important on the greens, and a lens with that treatment will have a more noticeable difference between what you see through the glasses and the corner of your eye.The curve of a lens is going to matter, too, Bryant says. Its measured on a scale of one to 10, he explains, common for reading glasses which are pretty much straight from end to end at a five, and ski goggles at a nine. Higher numbers give better protection and cover a wider range of view, but curve can add some distortion. Color is also a factor, according to Nick Gomez, senior product manager of Under Armour Performance Eyewear. While green lenses might be good for the ball field theres better balance of background and the target object brown ones are good for hiking or mountain biking because they offer improved depth perception, he says.Generally, gray lenses, maybe with a hint of green, block the brightest rays, and brown are almost as effective but have a slightly warmer effect. Gomez says brown might be the most versatile. Rose helps brighten overcast days, and can be particularly helpful in the early morning or near sundown. Yellow lenses have a similar effect. Blue and green lenses provide a view that is truer to natural color, but they might not curb bright light the way a gray lens would. Mirrored lenses, which are, of course, only mirrored on the outside, can be an additional layer of glare perception, notes Bazan. They are less likely to change color perception, he says. Personal preference is whats going to drive this. You have to try them on, says Bazan. There definitely is a performance factor, and theres word of mouth and people are paying attention to what top-level athletes are using ...Athletes tend to be most demandingBy SAMANTHA CRITCHELLAssociated PressFASHION Photo courtesy ASSOCIATED PRESSThis selection of sunglasses is from from Hobie and Under Armour in New York.Choosing new summer shades is more than an issue of flattering frames.There are decisions to be made about the lenses,too.

And its just the thing for summer.At its simplest, its red, white or ros wine with juice, fruit and water still or sparkling. Its lower in alcohol than wine, light in body and a bit sweet. At its most bombastic, it can also have sugar, rum, vodka, absinthe, elderflower liqueur and/or a dozen other additions that can make it powerful and alcoholic, best drunk just before a long summers nap. In either case, while the weathers warm, its best served chilled, in a big pitcher jammed with ice cubes.Sangrias finest attribute is that you, the sipper, can make it exactly what you want. It has no official recipe.Sangrias history is democratic, too, in that one persons version arguably is as authentic as anothers. Some historians say poor people in Spain during its Roman occupation, as early as 200 B.C., were cutting their wine with water for purposes of thrift and sobriety, then adding chunks of fruit to make up for the dilution.Others say that by the 1700s, Brits and Continentals were making Claret Cup Punch of red Bordeaux wines like cabernet sauvignon with brandy and fruit added.By the 1830s, nearly every province in Spain had its own version and each to this day vows its sangria is the worlds finest. America was introduced to sangria at the 1964 Worlds Fair in New York City, some sources say. Others find U.S. versions being served at Southern plantations in the 1930s.Basic sangria with only wine, fruit juice, sugar and soda is low in alcohol, maybe 8 percent as opposed to about 12 percent for uncut wine. But if you add high-proof liquor or liqueurs, the result can pack a punch. I saw a sangria recipe online that called for a full bottle of wine, a half cup of brandy, a half cup of triple sec, a full bottle of vodka and 10 grapes. Well, plus some 7 Up.Offbeat Brands is offering Slices, a low-alcohol Spanish-style sangria made of verdejo, one of Spains top white grapes, or tempranillo, the red rioja grape plus several flavors of fruit juice.My favorite version is a bottle of white, ros or red wine, a half cup of brandy, a half-bottle of seltzer water plus slices of oranges, lemons and limes. My suggestion is to Google sangria and choose ingredients and methods to suit your taste. As Oscar Wilde said, Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.Bottled sangriasSlices Red Wine Sangria, Spain (tempranillo with orange, lime and blackberry juices, 9 percent alcohol): Deep purple, intensely fruity aromas and flavors, sweet-tart finish; $10.Slices White Wine Sangria, Spain (verdejo with lime, lemon and pineapple juices, 8.5 percent alcohol): Pale straw color, floral aromas, intensely fruity flavors, sweet-tart finish; $10.Slices Rose Sangria, Spain (tempranillo with lemon, lime and strawberry juices, 8.5 percent alcohol): Bright pink color, intensely fruity flavors, sweet-tart finish; $10.Slices Rose Sparkling Sangria, Spain (tempranillo with lime, lemon and strawberry juices): Pink color, intensely fruity aromas and flavors, sweet-tart finish, softly sparkling; $10.Slices White Sparkling Sangria, Spain (verdejo with lemon, lime and pineapple juices, 8.5 percent alcohol): Pale straw color, intensely fruity aromas and flavors, sweet-tart finish, softly sparkling; $10.
