This is a declaration of war against fishermen ... a vast overreach, said Upper Keys commercial fisherman Carlos Jimenez. Taking the brunt of the collective anger from more than 100 opponents were volunteer members of the Ecosystem Protection working group, preparing a set of revised zoning maps to submit to the full Sanctuary Advisory Council.After hours of public comment, the working group abandoned plans to vote Monday on recommendations for a network of new ecological reserves and preservation areas ranging from the Dry Tortugas to Carysfort Reef off North Key Largo.Everybody just now is getting wind of this, said Ernie Piton, president of the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association and a member of the working group. Theres no way were getting through this today. Its not possible. The whole things a meltdown, said Joe Weatherby, a diving representative on the working group.As soon as you start putting lines on that map, its like a grenade, said Mark Chiappone, a Nova Southeastern University research scientist and sanctuary consultant. Thats where we are.The working group which planned to deliver recommendations for new protected areas to the Sanctuary Advisory Council on Aug. 20 decided to hold off until after September, when it will stage regional meetings in the Upper, Middle and Lower Keys to meet with mariners who know the local waters. A fourth meeting in Key West will look at the Dry Tortugas and Marquesas. Three former members of the original Sanctuary Advisory Council commercial fisherman Tony Iarocci, lawyer David Paul Horan and charter captain Bill Wickers spoke out strongly against the maps on the table Monday. This is deja vu, said Iarocci, a veteran of the acrimonious 1995-96 meetings on the Keys sanctuarys first management plan and notake areas. This is not the way to do this. I think its ludicrous, I really do.

One man was taken into custody Monday afternoon after 12 automobiles were burglarized between Marathon and Lower Matecumbe Key and a chase with deputies ensued. The autos had their windows smashed out. Among goods stolen were cell phones, tablet computers, cameras, cash, credit cards and jewelry. Five autos were broken into at the Dolphin Research Center on Grassy Key, three at the Seven Mile Bridge and two each at the Long Key Bridge and Robbies Marina in Islamorada. Tuesday, some of the merchandise was found in a dumpster at the Marathon Burger King, said Deputy Becky Herrin, spokeswoman for the Monroe County Sheriffs Office. After getting information about a possible car involved Monday afternoon, deputies with the Sheriffs Office stopped a Dodge Challenger at mile marker 90, but during the stop, the car took off. Deputies pursued and around mile marker 91, both right-hand tires of the Challenger shredded off their rims on Coconut Row in the Tavernier Beach subdivision. The car came to a halt and four people inside took off running. Two women who were in the car were found hiding nearby. Aman thought to be in the car, Darrell Bush, 19, of Fort Lauderdale was later found waiting at a nearby bus stop and arrested for giving deputies a false name. The driver wasnt found.Items such as checkbooks and electronic equipment were found discarded in the same area where the suspects fled. The women were not arrested but Herrin said more arrests are expected, likely suspects from Fort Lauderdale.12 vehicles are burglarized Monday afternoonCRIME FRONTKeynoter StaffReport on homeless to focus on needsWith Key Wests homeless population at a 12-year low, the city has hired a consultant to prepare a gap analysis that recommends replacing the Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter with a full-service 24/7 social-service center.Mayor Craig Cates has led the charge for a comprehensive overhaul of how the homeless 316 men, women and children countywide, according to a 2012 count fit into day-to-day life in the Southernmost Citys touristdriven economy. The first step came in May when City Manager Bob Vitas hired Texas-based consultant Robert Marbut to analyze existing homeless services and services that are lacking, then create a plan to cover that gap. That cost $13,780.Marbut, founder and chief executive of Haven for a Hope, a large-scale homeless center in San Antonio, Texas, will present his findings to the Key West City Commission on Aug. 6 at a meeting scheduled for 6 p.m. in Old City Hall on Greene Street.The consultant will address the questions of how chronic is the problem and what is the best strategy, Vitas said Tuesday. You do not want Key West and Monroe County to be known as Destination Homeless. Previewing Marbuts presentation, Vitas said the solution would include food service, shelter, substanceabuse and mental-health referrals, medical care and other outreach all at one site. His conclusion is that a 24/7, 365-[day] center would be opened over at Easter Seals building on College Road on Stock Island. That conforms to a push from Cates to replace KOTS, a camp-type shelter open from sundown to sunrise on property owned by the Sheriffs Office, also on College Road. Preliminary development plans for the city-owned Easter Seals site include use of the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District headquarters on abutting city-owned property. The citys lease with Mosquito Control expires in May 2014. Vitas suggested the Easter Seals building could be used for intake, while the Mosquito Control building could be retrofitted for transitional housing. The city is in the process of approving a 2013-14 budget and Vitas said any expenditures related to a new homeless facility would be put off until the next budget24/7 facility looks like it gains steamBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comTHE HOMELESS Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYThis is the former Easter Seals building on College Road on Stock Island that would be used for intake for a 24/7 homeless assistance center.See Homeless,2AThird dive death in two weeksThe body of a diver who was reported missing was found Monday morning floating in water near the Marathon end of the Seven Mile Bridge. It was the third time in less than two weeks the Keys have had what appears to be a water-related death.The Monroe County Sheriffs Office said 65-yearold Manuel Duran was last seen by family members Saturday when he left to go fishing and diving. His niece called the Sheriffs Office at 11 a.m. Monday to report him missing. She said he was possibly diving at the north end of the Seven Mile Bridge. Asearch was conducted by the Sheriffs Office, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the Coast Guard, and his body was recovered just before 2 p.m. floating about 100 yards from the 7 Mile Marina at mile marker 47 bayside.

Ormond Beach residents John Gelnaw, 19, and Alec Ferguson, 20, took the leap off the span around mile marker 54 for no known reason. Another man who was in the area called the Monroe County Sheriffs Office after hearing them yelling for help as they floated with the current out toward the bayside. Vaca Cut has notorious currents and is not safe for swimming. Deputy Wilfredo Guerra, a marine officer, responded on his boat and, after the two men were in the water for about an hour, he was able to find them and pull them onto his boat. The two were checked out by rescue units and found not to be injured. They dont face any charges. cycle, which gives Mosquito Control nearly a year to consider a move. Although costs arent locked down, Vitas said expenses would exceed the $450,000 the city spends each year running KOTS. Vitas said hed seek buyin, including financial, from Monroe County moving forward. They already have skin in the game, he said, pointing out that a significant number of inmates housed at the Monroe County Detention Center are homeless. Part of this is they would incur less costs because some of these people wouldnt necessarily be sent to the jail, he said.Up until last month, some county inmates, called trusties, served work detail at KOTS, helping maintain the facility and grounds.We had a few inmates test positive for tobacco use after working at KOTS, Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said, and suspect they may have also been drinking alcohol at the shelter. The shelter was given several warnings about this and, when the issues were not resolved, we pulled our inmates from cleaning the shelter. Trusties get booze, buttsFrom Homeless,1AHomeless summit likelyAlthough nothing has been formalized, the city of Key West and Monroe County Commission are poised to jointly discuss the impact of homelessness on the Florida Keys. County Commissioner Sylvia Murphy called for such a summit in a Monday budget meeting at the Harvey Government Center in Key West. Commissioners heard from Sheriff Rick Ramsay, Medical Examiner E. Hunt Scheuerman and Department of Health Administrator Bob Eadie about costs their respective departments incur providing services to homeless people, 316 men, women and children, according to a 2012 survey. That discussion would come in tandem with a city push to replace its overnight shelter with a 24/7 homeless service center at the former Easter Seals building on Stock Island. The Key West City Commission will receive an analysis of needed homeless services at its Aug. 6 meeting from consultant Robert Marbut.County,city session not yet scheduledTHE HOMELESSKeynoter StaffHomeless an ongoing problemThe Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter, home to about 150 homeless men and women between sunset and sunrise, was established in October 2004 when the city of Key West adopted a law making it illegal to camp in mangrove areas.The small facility, on property owned by the Monroe County Sheriffs Office on Stock Island, opened in response to visible homeless encampments that were prompted by the new camping law, particularly along South Roosevelt Boulevard.Up until October 2011, the Florida Keys Outreach Coalition ran KOTS supported by an annual city earmark of about $400,000.The Outreach Coalition bowed out of its management role, saying the overnight homeless center doesnt mesh with its organizational goal of providing homeless men, women and children with transitional housing.The Southernmost Homeless Assistance League, an umbrella social-service organization, facilitated a management transition that yielded the current threeparty management consortium comprising Samuels House, St. Mary Star of the Sea Outreach Mission and the Guidance/Care Center.In addition to coordinating social services aimed at homeless people, SHAL conducts an annual pointin-time survey during which legions of volunteers comb Monroe County streets, bridges, mangroves and other areas to take a physical count. The population of the homeless has been on the decline since the 2002 high of 2,151 people countywide.By 2007, the count was down to 1,222. In 2010, the figure was 1,020 and nearly half that, around 500, by 2011, a drop attributed largely to a series of laws championed by Key West Mayor Craig Cates designed essentially to make it harder to be homeless in the Southernmost City.Among the new regulations are strict provisions regarding public drinking, panhandling and sleeping or camping in vehicles. The 2012 SHALcount was down to just 316, with the majority in Key West. In 2011, homeowners at the Sunset Marina condos adjacent to KOTS sued the city alleging the homeless facility was built in violation of local land-use, zoning and density laws; state and federal environmental and permitting regulations; and Federal Emergency Management Agency flood elevation requirements. The case is being heard by Chief Monroe County Circuit Court Judge David Audlin and the next hearing is set for Aug. 18. Both sides are engaged in depositions and subpoenas.The Sunset Marina Homeowners Association has also challenged the citys preliminary plan to shutter KOTS and establish a 24/7 homeless center just down College Road at the former Easter Seals building.In that regard, an administrative law judge has upheld the citys position that a homeless shelter is a permitted use of the Easter Seals land given that the city follows its own conditional-use process, acquiring approval from the Key West Planning Board and City Commission.But numbers have declined over the yearsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comTHE HOMELESS Man held in baseball bat attackABig Pine Key man with a history of violence was at it again this week, says the Monroe County Sheriffs Office. Craig Veitinger, 19, of Avenue F was charged early Monday morning with aggravated battery, a felony, for allegedly beating another man with a metal baseball bat. Hes being held in the Stock Island jail with no bail allowed. The Sheriffs Office say he beat Max Sanchez, 22, so badly that Sanchez had to be airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami. He suffered a broken arm and had head injuries, according to Deputy Andrew Hudson.When Hudson arrested him at his house, he smelled strongly of alcohol and said Sanchez had hit him in the head. He said he saw a bat on the ground but did not remember using it on Sanchez, Hudson wrote in his arrest report.A911 call came in at 11:50 p.m. Sunday from Veitingers house but the caller hung up. Hudson went to the house, and a woman who lives there told the deputy she called because there was a group of people outside her house. She said she hung up because the group left the area, Deputy Becky Herrin said.As Hudson was leaving, he saw some people in the area and one of them said there had been a fight. He said Craig Veitinger had been in the street with a baseball bat. He said [Sanchez] fled into the woods when Deputy Hudson showed up. Afew hours later, Hudson came upon Sanchez at Big Pines Tom Thumb store, when a red Dodge Durango pulled up. Sanchez was a passenger and another man in the truck told Hudson Sanchez had been hit several times with a baseball bat and might have a broken arm, Herrin said. The others in the Durango said they found Sanchez in the bushes on Avenue F, unresponsive, and said a possible suspect was at the Seahorse RVPark on County Road. Witnesses there told Hudson they saw Veitinger hit Sanchez repeatedly with a metal baseball bat, Herrin said. Hudson went to Veitingers house, where he took him into custody. Veitinger is no stranger to trouble. On July 11, 2012, he was charged with misdemeanor battery and theft, and felony burglary. On Sept. 13, Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones withheld adjudication. On Jan. 28 this year, he was charged with felony battery and misdemeanor obstructing justice. On April 19, Jones sentenced him to probation.Veitinger has previous arrests for batteryBIG PINE KEYKeynoter StaffSCOUTS LEND A HAND Photo by LARRY BENVENUTIBoy Scouts from the Order of the Arrow Ocean Adventure Program out of the Brinton Environmental Center,Florida Sea Base on Summerland Key recently helped Crane Point Museum and Nature Center in Marathon with property maintenance.The scouts, ages 17 to 22,removed invasive exotic plants,among other things. VEITINGERCounty raises tax rateAsplit vote of the Monroe County Commission will send a tax rate above the rollback rate to formal hearings in September.The 3-2 vote by commissioners, meeting Tuesday in Key West, set a preliminary millage of 4.0167 mills, which is lower than the current years tax rate but 2.67 percent higher than the rollback rate, which is the rate needed to raise the same amount of revenue next fiscal year as the current one. The difference would add about $2 million to the $75 million the rollback tax rate would generate to pay for day-to-day Monroe County operations in the coming fiscal year. Its a small increase, Commissioner Danny Kolhage said. When we get to the September hearings, we can take it out. Kolhage said the added money could help the county maintain an adequate balance in the county reserves and avoid possible budget shock next year.Commissioner Sylvia Murphy voted for the higher millage, saying she was adamant that county employees need a 3 percent across-the-board salary hike.The cost of living is going up, like it or not, Murphy said. It keeps the employees at the level of living they have now. I dont want to base my entire life on holding everything below rollback if there is something we need, Murphy said.Commissioner Heather Carruthers and Mayor George Neugent voted against the higher millage, saying they want to keep the maximum property-tax level at the 3.9152-mill rollback rate.Carruthers said she is not ready to approve an acrossthe-board salary increase. And Neugent urged starting at the rollback rate as a sign of fiscal responsibility.Now the 4.0167 millage rate will be mailed to county property owners in August as the highest possible rate.That doesnt mean its authorized yet, Kolhage said.Commissioner David Rice said he generally agrees with keeping a higher reserve in case of unexpected costs. We dont want to have next year arrive and have to raise taxes considerably in one year, he said. There has been a gradual decrease in the cost of [county] government but every rational person knows theres a limit to how low it can go, Rice said. We dont know where that limit is but if we exceed it, we get a hard lesson.Formal budget hearings will take place at 5 p.m. Sept. 4 at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center in Key Largo, at 5 p.m. Sept. 9 at the Marathon Government Center and finally at 5 p.m. Sept. 12 at the Harvey Government Center in Key West.COUNTY COMMISSIONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comPorter looks at lowperforming schoolsKeys public schools Superintendent Mark Porter said hed work with principals to address Florida Department of Education letter grades that indicate declining quality at Key West elementary schools. The state issues school letter grades each year based on an array of information, including standardized test scores, overall learning gains and gains for the lowest-performing 25 percent of students. In Key West, Poinciana Elementary and Gerald Adams Elementary dropped from an Ato a B while Glynn Archer Elementary, which closed this year, dropped from a C to a D. Glynn Archer students move to their own building at Horace OBryant Middle School in the coming school year. HOB also dropped a letter grade, to a B.In the rest of the Florida Keys, all the other schools either maintained their grade from last year or improved. We cant ignore how we seem to be failing our students in one particular area, Porter said. This isnt just about school grades; its about how weve failed to meet student needs.He acknowledged that proactive steps are needed to ensure the problems identified arent compounded as the students move to middle and high school.That involves drilling down using data analysis to identify student groups and subject areas that need the most attention, along with working with principals.The principals play a crucial role as the instructional leader of their school. We need to work to correct this and thats something we do together. Im not going to just sit back and watch, he said. Sugarloaf School maintained its rating while Stanley Switlik Elementary in Marathon improved from a B to an A. Key Largo School and Plantation Key School both maintained Aratings.Former Switlik Principal Lesley Salinero, who guided the school from a C to an A, said hard work from staff and tying core subjects to electives drove improvement.Art was paired with literature; the media center was research and we tied [physical education to math, she said. You had to solve an addition problem before you could get up to bat. It was a fun way to integrate math into sports. Salinero said she started with an analysis of teachers. I would look at your class list and see what are their common strengths and common weaknesses. I moved staff to different places where I thought theyd be strongest.MONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com Subscriptions 743-5551

The United Teachers of Monroe bargaining team this week negotiated supplemental pay with Monroe County School District Superintendent Mark Porter as part of ongoing contract talks.Depending on school-byschool personnel allocations and schedules, teachers can volunteer, or in some cases are assigned, an extra instructional period each day. Based on a discussion Monday at district headquarters on Trumbo Point, the current supplemental pay schedule would given an additional $3,600 per year to teachers who work with students an extra 40 to 49 minutes each day; $3,900 for 49 to 60 minutes; and $4,200 for 60 to 80 minutes. Teachers are contracted to work a 37.5-hour work week. Porter said his preference is for teachers to voluntarily accept an extra period, which UTM President Holly Hummell-Gorman said takes away from planning time. Im hoping most of this pushes into the voluntary, Porter said. Thats the goal. He said conflicts could be addressed through creative scheduling and more coordination between teachers in overlapping subject areas. On less planning time, Hummell-Gorman said, We dont want people moving in that direction. We want them to have more as we move to Common Core, a more rigorous set of national academic benchmarks based on standardized testing. Porter tasked district Finance Director Jim Drake with reviewing budget projections to determine exactly how much money needs to be set aside to pay for teachers instructing an extra period.We need to determine how many supplements are already out there. This goes to the few, not the masses, he said. Remember, Ive only got so much money to spend.The previous three-year teacher contract, instituted in 2010, mandated seven unpaid furlough days annually, saving $1.2 million each year, and put off raises. The larger budget picture included more than $13 million in cuts over two years.Porter has described the 2013-14 budget under construction as turning and corner and indicated hell back off the furlough program while offering raises, all subject to bargaining. Early estimates from Drake indicate Porter will have about $2.2 million with which to bargain. Thats $1.4 million in a raise pool mandated by the state Legislature and another $800,000 in unallocated money. After Porter was hired in September, he and HummellGorman agreed to cut $400,000 from the then-$1.1 million supplement budget extended to teachers taking on extra classes, as well as to those who earn specific certifications, coach teams or sponsor clubs. Negotiations are set to continue today beginning at 10 a.m. on Trumbo and again on Friday starting at 9 a.m. Wednesday,July 31,2013 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com Womens Health ServicesYou have questions.

[sanctuary] would be different, that people would be allowed to keep living and working here, Horan said. Now the very idea of being able to continue working here is slowly fading away.... People cant be here to tell you how bad theyre hurting because they have to work. Wickers said the first advisory council was urged to enact large no-take areas but compromised to create the zoning system in place since 1997.Save yourself a lot of enemies, Wickers said. Right now it seems [the sanctuary system] is working. I dont see why you want to double the size of it.Both charter and commercial fishermen said creating new ecological reserves, much larger than the Sanctuary Preservation Areas at popular reef sites, would concentrate fishing pressure in smaller areas. More closures would saturate other areas with lobster traps, commercial fisherman Gary Nichols said. This is the most ludicrous map Ive ever seen. Islamoradas charter fleet would beat the hell out of unclosed areas because that would be the only place they can fish, guide Greg Eklund said. You cant enforce the areas you have now.... There are tons of options without these draconian closures. Ive been to more fisheries meetings than I ever cared to, said Lower Keys commercial fishermen George Niles. This is the first one Ive ever been to where it was 100 percent in opposition. The speakers found a common theme in advocating water-quality improvements, more law enforcement on the water, and boater education.Working group members said the draft maps were sketched out to meet objectives for marine habitat preservation outlined by the full Advisory Council. Their recommendations were built using scientific reports presented at the groups previous meetings, they said.Fishermen dismissed the science as uninformed and possibly biased.Opposition from all overFrom Sanctuary,1AHerrin said. The friend went back in and pulled the victim to the boat but he was unresponsive. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation was started and 911 was called as they headed to shore. They got in at the Tavernier Creek Marina, where paramedics took over and took the man to Mariners Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. On July 18, Merritt Island resident Joy Meyers, 54, died while on a dive trip off Islamorada. She was on board a vessel owned by Key Dives of Islamorada. She was diving with a group of divers and a guide on a patch reef at a depth of about 23 feet when she indicated she was having some kind of trouble.The guide escorted her to the surface. Meyers got back on the vessel around 2 p.m. and the guide returned to the water to continue with the other divers. Meyers sat down on a bench and began removing her gear. She indicated she was feeling tired.Ashort time later, a crew member noticed she was sitting on the bench with her chin on her chest. He checked and she was not breathing. The other divers were called back to the boat and CPR was begun. The boat returned to the dock, meeting paramedics at Bud n Marys Marina. Meyers was taken to Mariners Hospital, where she was declared dead. Autopsy results are pending for all three divers.Many dive deathsFrom Diver,1A Judges dog bites manAdog owned by a Monroe County Circuit Court judge bit a Key West man Friday, according to the city Police Department.Around 6 p.m., Officer Brian Leahy responded to a call from Petronia and Fort streets from Nicholas Norman, who turned 34 on Tuesday. He said he was exercising in a field there and that an Australian Shepard, later identified as Abbie, bit him on his left calf. The dog is owned by Judge Tegan Slaton.Leahy wrote that Slaton confirmed Normans story but added that his two dogs were playing fetch in the field when the incident occurred. Slaton told me there were no previous incidents with Abbie, 4, biting anyone.Medics treated Normans wounds three small lacerations at the scene.Adam Dude Daytz, from the Keys chapter of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, was called and completed a dog-bite report.

The letter writer was referring to Floridas Stand Your Ground law. In some ways, I agree with the writer, who pointed out how much he and his teenaged son enjoy visiting Islamorada to fish and enjoy the beautiful Keys. They come from New York and the writer said someday he would like to think he would be doing the same with his grandkids.He wrote that he would no longer visit Florida until this particular law is amended or appealed. This is now becoming a nationwide issue against Florida primarily due to the publicity of the George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin shooting. That trial was broadcast on National TV. It focused a lot of attention on the Florida law.The law places a lot of decision making on the person with a gun who must decide if his or her life is being threatened and the resulting use of that gun. I think the law is flawed and have never agreed with it. It takes only one hotheaded fool to gun your loved one down.I have no opposition to guns or ownership thereof as our constitutional right, but a law that leaves so much interpretation to the imagination is a problem law. As we now see, it has become a huge problem in our state. I have never seen or had a friend in such a position to have to use a gun nor ever heard of any of my neighbors doing so, but the media from time to time reports on such incidents like the Trayvon Martin killing, sadly, when they happen. Others have happened like the road-rage killing of an offduty officer in Miami in front of his young daughter. Still, I can see why people visiting from out of state would worry. I think it was a mistake among many then-Gov. Jeb Bush made by signing it into law. I would suppose the main worry people have would be road rage or boat rage. Lets hope at least something gets done to stop this bad publicity and end the use of guns on our roads and to settle arguments between neighbors and bar brawls, and then the users claim Stand Your Ground after the funeral is over.Frank Simmons Delray BeachFloridas in fact safeThis is a reply to Nicholas Thatos letter, Florida is not safe, exclaiming his familys negative feelings over Floridas Stand Your Ground law.I am a proud Texas resident who visits the Keys as often as I can. My family loves Florida and feels very safe traveling to many parts of this wonderful state.To the best of my knowledge, Stand Your Ground laws exist in at least 25 states. They exist to help defend and protect victims of crime. All humans deserve the right to defend themselves. The police are great for investigating the aftermath of crimes but do not have the manpower to defend you against a criminal. Mr. Thatos, drop the politics and head back to the Keys. Drew Shubeck Keller, TexasDont live in fearId like to ask letter writer Nicholas Thatos (Florida is not safe) if hes also going to boycott the other states that have some version of the Stand Your Ground law, or will it just be Florida?Living in fear of an idea that something might happen because of this law is no way to live. Its too bad that this family will miss out on those amazing times down here in a state that has fabulous food, art, beautiful weather and beaches and some of the best fishing around.Bert Patton MiamiA big land grabI believe the founding father would be rolling around in their graves if they were aware of what went on at the Monroe County Commissions special meeting on land acquisitions.Approximately 20 government people and some of the usual got-miners sat in on this meeting trying to devise methods to steal the remaining 8,000 or so building lots from their owners. One statement from County Commissioner Heather Carruthers mirrored the common theme at this meeting she said lets just add the need for more rate-ofgrowth-ordinance points to Tier 1 lots to discourage folks more from using them.One of the staffs suggestions was taxing lots more so people would stop paying on them and then the county could buy their tax certificates. Sounds like the old King George approach to me.All and all, this meeting was just another fine example of why people hate and mistrust their government. I know this wont be a big surprise to you but I was totally disgusted. Salvador Gutierrez Hudson, Fla.Way to go,Coast GuardAyoung tourist, on holiday in Marathon, didnt realize that a 20-knot wind, while totally exciting and cool paddling downwind, is a beast padding back.While cheering him on, we first saw the smiling paddleboarder sail toward our dock. I motioned to him that it might be time to turn around. The sun was setting behind banks of clouds high in the sky as the earth and sea faded into hues of blues and grays. Light rain faded to mist and back. About half an hour later, we heard voices calling his name. We knew who was in trouble. I yelled to them to call the U.S. Coast Guard before it was dark. Seconds later, I walked to the end of my dock and was calmed upon immediately seeing our Coast Guard already on duty and rescuing the ambitious paddleboarder. Way to go, Coast Guard. God bless our troops. And God bless America. Kathryn Morris MarathonAirlines never returningMarathon has tried for years to make its airport a viable option. In the past, Delta Airlines was guaranteed $750,000 to keep flights to Atlanta open. After five months, they closed the operation. Marathon is not and will never be a destination like Key West. Florida Keys Marathon Airport is a great airport for private planes but not commercial flights. The airlines cant make it profitable.Why doesnt Marathon advertise that its not like Key West? Business would probably take off. Who needs clothingoptional motels and the craziness?Larry Reitz Marathon Reef Relief has come under increasing public pressure to take a stand on the issue of the upcoming referendum of whether city of Key West should request a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers study on widening a portion of the ship channel into Key West. This referendum question is purely political in nature and will allow the citizens of Key West to provide direction to their elected officials on moving forward to request a study or not.Reef Relief has repeatedly stated its unalterable opposition to anything that would adversely affect the coral reef and the benthic community that supports it.As a science-based grassroots organization, Reef Relief has taken a number of principled stands based on science no matter how unpopular or oppositional to popular opinion. One such stand was our opposition to the flooding of Florida Bay with nitrogen-rich fresh water in the 1990s. The conventional and popular thought, especially among other environmental organizations, was to support the hyper-salinity theory that was finally found to be the cause of the bays problems.Reef Relief stood alone, but Reef Relief was correct. We are not in a popularity contest, and we are not political. In fact, our status as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization specifically precludes us from trying to influence an election issue. We have one client, the endangered coral reefs of the Florida Keys, the rest of the Caribbean and the world. Reef Reliefs work over 20 years with the cruise industry by our founders, Craig and Deevon Quirolo, resulted in significant changes to cruise ships in environmental protection. We were joined in this by environmental groups and governments in the Caribbean and Alaska to vastly improve the environmental footprint of the whole industry. We are proud of this work, and it was accomplished because Reef Relief relied on science and the credibility that science brings. We will never sacrifice the credibility of science for the volatility of opinion. Meanwhile, we stand literally appalled at the amount of money, time and energy that is ripping apart the fabric of our community over the issue of a study that may or may not result in a dredge operation 10 to 15 years from now. There are hugely significant policies and actions that are killing the reef today. We have a Florida Legislature that never met a polluter it did not love. We have a Department of Environmental Protection that spent the past year qualifying dirty water as the benchmark for clean water.When water managers are deciding what to do with excess dirty water from Lake Okeechobee, they have three choices: Send it east to the Atlantic, west to the Gulf of Mexico or south to us. The good folks east dont want it. They have seen the algae blooms. The good folks west dont want it. They have the red tides and the dead rivers and manatees to prove its destructive nature.The good folks east and west have huge populations and the force that those voters can bring to the process. So guess where the nutrient-rich dirty water goes? If you guessed to us, you would be correct. Reef Relief engages a full-time state programs manager in Tallahassee to fight for clean water and policies that would protect our coral reefs. During the last legislative session, amendments to bills that would allow pollution and dirty water were flying so fast no person could keep up, much less effectively fight.These are among a host of immediate threats and very real damages being done to our coral reefs today and every day.We invite those concerned with our environment and the health of reefs to join with us to fight these threats with the same passion, enthusiasm and money dedicated to fighting or promoting a study. We invite the entire Key West community to join us today in fighting the immediate threats of today. Peter Anderson is chairman of the Reef Relief board of directors in Key West.House GOPjettisons food stamps, which 47 million Americans use; lets hope common sense returnsCredit U.S. House Speaker John Boehner with having a sense of whimsy, anyway.Amidst a raucous House debate over a new farm bill, Republicans cut food stamps from the bill. It was the first time in four decades that nutrition assistance to lowincome Americans has not been included in the farm bill.Although the bill would have cut food-stamp funding by $20.5 billion over the next 10 years, House Republicans complained that wasnt enough. Presumably, the House will at some point pass a separate bill to fund food stamps at some lesser amount. Or maybe not. There appears to be very little pardon the pun appetite for a food-stamp bill in the House. Asked if such a bill could even make it to the House floor over the objection of the conservatives who hold power, Boehner shrugged and replied: If ands and buts were candy and nuts, every day would be Christmas. He added My goal right now is to get the farm bill passed. Well get to those other issues later. At least he didnt say of the 47 million Americans who depend on food stamps: Let them eat gruel.Stripping food stamps out of the farm bill was, of course, pure show business. There is little chance that the Senate will pass the bill without nutrition assistance included. And even if it did, President Obama would veto it.Unfortunately, thats what passes for politics as usual these days in the D.C. Swamp. Gainesville SunTime to get past Martin shootingCivil-rights groups and even Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid are urging the Justice Department to pursue a federal case against George Zimmerman, who was acquitted by a Florida jury in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Sanford. We see no purpose in the agency trying to prove Zimmerman committed a hate crime. The state trial did not reveal a racial motive. Contrary to early misleading media reports, Zimmerman described Martin as black only after being asked by a 911 operator. Zimmerman did think the teenager, who was returning from a convenience store, was up to no good in a neighborhood where a number of homes had been burglarized. But there has been no suggestion Zimmerman set out to shoot anyone, particularly because of race. By following Martin against the instructions of the 911 official, Zimmerman precipitated a tragic encounter. But poor judgment is not a hate crime. Even Attorney General Eric Holder acknowledged as much. Unless there is evidence that was not revealed during the trial, it would be impossible for federal prosecutors to make such a case against Zimmerman. Atrial would only waste tax dollars and inflame emotions.Trayvon Martins death was a tragedy. But the jury carefully weighed all the evidence and concluded Zimmerman committed no crime. Afederal trial wont change the evidence and is unlikely to produce a different outcome.

This year, more than 4,800 leading researchers from around the world gathered in Boston to learn about, share and discuss groundbreaking new research and findings that will drive the world more quickly toward methods of prevention, treatment and, ultimately, a cure for Alzheimers disease. Held annually, this conference serves as a catalyst for new knowledge about dementia and fosters a vital, collegial research community. The content presented at the conference is created by researchers for their peers, serving to advance the areas of dementia science that are critical to the success of the field and the discovery of scientific breakthroughs. Alzheimers is growing at an alarming rate in the United States and around the world. Currently, there are more than 450,000 people living with Alzheimers disease in Florida. As the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States, Alzheimers is the only cause among the Top 10 diseases without a way to prevent, cure or even slow its progression.We need funding now so that we can continue the battle against this alarming disease and succeed in finding a cure. To stay up to date on the latest news from the conference, visit www.alz.org/aaic to read summaries, watch expert analysis and see photos. An increase in federal research funding is critical to prevent both the loss of life and the financial burden on the nation because today there are no survivors and there is still no cure.Ellen Brown, CEO Alzheimers Association Southeast Florida West Palm Beach

MM 50.5 (next to Herbies)743-2020 BusinessDebt collection can be an unpleasant business, but its a big one. The industry generates $12.2 billion in revenue for the roughly 4,500 firms chasing down borrowers who owe money on credit cards, auto loans and other accounts, according to figures from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Laws on the books and recent initiatives by the CFPB, a federal government consumer watchdog agency, offer borrowers ways to push back when firms call them multiple times a day or continue collection efforts without verifying that the debt is owed, among other illegal tactics. Last week, the CFPB expanded its consumer complaint system to include gripes over debt collection related to any consumer debt, including auto loans, medical bills and student loans. The collection firms are required to respond to such complaints within 15 days. Here are six tips for dealing with debt collection firms:Understand your rights. Debt collection agencies typically buy accounts that have gone unpaid from credit-card issuers and other lenders for pennies on the dollar. Recovering even a small portion of whats owed on an account can be profitable. Thats one reason firms have an incentive to go after borrowers over debt thats several years past due. How they go about doing so, however, is restricted by the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Consumer Financial Protection Act and other laws. The laws dont resolve the underlying issue of whether a consumer owes a debt. They just address the proper conduct from collection firms.So many consumers are intimidated about the process and dont know their rights and dont know what to do, says Laura Udis, senior financial services advocate at the Consumer Federation of America, a research, education and advocacy organization.Generally, collection firms are forbidden under the law from using unfair, deceptive or abusive tactics. That can include practices such as phone calls at all hours of the day or night, or using threats of violence or arrest. For a broader list of debt collection agency no-nos, go to www.consumer.ftc.gov .File a complaint. Borrowers who believe theyre being mistreated have several avenues to complain, including the Federal Trade Commission and their states attorney generals office. Many states have their own debt collection laws that may differ from federal laws. Another option is to complain directly to the debt collection company. The law enables borrowers to ask a debt collector to cease contacting them. The FTC recommends sending the request via certified mail. Once the firm receives the letter, its representatives may only contact you again to inform you of a specific action being taken against you, like a lawsuit. The CFPB has five sample letters that can be used as templates for raising a variety of issues with debt collection firms, including disputing the debt, or asking that they only communicate with your attorney.You can find the letters and also file complaints with the CFPB on its website, www .Consumerfinance.gov/.Dont ignore the situation. Many borrowers often make matters worse by ignoring overdue payment notices or collection agency letters. There is a window of time after the initial collection notice during which borrowers can exercise certain rights, such as asking for the name and address of the original creditor, as well as proof that they owe money. To do so, borrowers must make the request in writing within 30 days of receiving the collection notice. Abigger danger is missing a notice that the collection firm has sued you to recover the debt, says Udis. That opens the door for a court to issue a default judgment against you, which could lead to your wages being garnished and other penalties. Youll see attorneys in court with maybe 100 or more lawsuits at a time and no consumers showing up to defend, she says, so theyll get default judgment after default judgment.Heed statute of limitations. Unpaid loans may end up being bought and sold several times over the years by debt collectors. That can lead to collection attempts on accounts that have gone unpaid for many years. When the statute of limitation expires on debts, collection agencies are no longer able to sue the borrower for payment. That doesnt stop collectors from trying to convince a borrower to pay up. Setting aside the moral issue of meeting ones financial obligations, if the statute of limitations has expired on a debt, the borrower is, legally speaking, free to ignore the collection agency. But the claim can remain on your credit report after the statute of limitations for collecting the debt has expired. Such statutes vary from three to 15 years, depending on the state. Negative items remain on a credit report seven years; 10 years, if its a bankruptcy. Aborrower should look up the statute of the state where they reside, as thats the one that would apply. You can find a list at www.Bankrate.com Statutes of limitations dont apply to child-support payments, federal and state taxes, and federally guaranteed student loans.Avoid debt-settlement programs. Experts advise against entering a debt-settlement program. They are often run by for-profit companies that offer to negotiate a one-time payment that creditors can accept as a payoff in lieu of the total amount owed.Many people dont realize their rightsBy ALEX VEIGAAssociated PressPERSONAL FINANCEDealing with a bill collector?

Woman busted for lobsterA20-year-old dental assistant from Marathon faces numerous misdemeanor charges for allegedly selling lobster on craigslist.com without a license.Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers arrested Kasey Platt Monday in the Marathon Kmart parking lot following a sting operation.Lt. Josh Peters said he was contacted by an anonymous source about Platts craigslist ad, which read: Fresh Lobster Tails $10 a tail. Shipping available @ extra charge.Later that morning, Officer Raul Pena-Lopez received a text response to his attempts to contact the number listed. Pena-Lopez was able to agree to the purchase of 25 fresh lobster tails for $250. The advertiser Platt set up the sale for later that afternoon in the Kmart lot.The advertiser stated the lobster tails were frozen but had only been frozen for three days, thus guaranteeing their freshness and indicating the lobsters were harvested during the recreational miniseason, Peters wrote. During the two-day miniseason that just ended, youre allowed just six lobster per person per day in the Keys.Officer Martin Messier set up in the lot in an unmarked SUVwhile Pena-Lopez conducted the plainclothes purchase from Platt. Peters wrote that during the sale, Mrs. Platt indicated that she could get more tails if Ofc. PenaLopez wanted to buy them. He just had to let her know.Platt was charged with unlicensed sale of saltwater products, possession/sale of Florida spiny lobster during the closed season, not possessing a saltwater products license, not possessing a retail dealer license and not possessing bills of laden and invoices pertaining to the transport of saltwater products.FWC sting nets Platt at KmartAfter a tumultuous period that has included a federal investigation and a rebellion by a major shareholder, Naples-based hospital chain Health Management Associates plans to merge with another major hospital company, the firms announced Tuesday. Tennessee-based Community Health Systems Inc. will buy HMAin a $7.6 billion deal that will affect at least 25 hospitals in Florida. HMAoperates or is a partner in 23 hospitals in the state, while Community Health Systems owns two.HMAoperates Lower Keys Medical Center on Stock Island and previously managed Fishermens Community Hospital in Marathon.Nationally, the deal will create an industry giant with 206 hospitals in 29 states, many in smaller and mid-size markets. The purchase, which remains subject to HMA shareholder approval, is expected to close during the first three months of 2014.I truly believe we have found the right partner, and this transaction will benefit the great communities we serve,HMAChairman William Schoen said during a conference call Tuesday morning with Wall Street analysts.Schoen said he and Wayne Smith, chairman and chief executive officer of Community Health Systems, began talking about a possible deal in late 2012. During the conference call, Smith said HMAbrings a very attractive portfolio, and a presentation indicated Florida will be one of the merged companys largest markets.HMAs geographical footprint is very complimentary to ours, Smith said. The announcement came after months of questions surrounding HMA. Most recently, major shareholder Glenview Capital Management launched an effort in June to replace the companys board of directors, an effort that HMAhas resisted. HMAPresident and CEO Gary Newsome announced in May that he would retire to take a position with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. HMA announced Tuesday that John M. Starcher, president of its Eastern Group, will serve as interim company president and CEO. Meanwhile Tuesday, HMAannounced it had received additional subpoenas in June and July from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as part of a long-running investigation into emergency-room issues at company hospitals. At least in part, that investigation centers on whether HMApressured physicians to admit emergency-room patients to bring in more revenue. The CBS show Minutes broadcast a piece on the issue late last year, with HMAarguing that it had not pressured physicians to make admissions decisions. HMAoperates 71 hospitals in 15 states, with its Florida hospitals typically in smaller and mid-size markets such as the Keys, Bartow, Melbourne, Naples, Brooksville and Milton. But it also finalized a partnership earlier this year to operate Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg.In addition to the 23 current Florida hospitals, HMA also recently has been chosen to lease Munroe Regional Medical Center in Ocala and Bert Fish Medical Center in New Smyrna Beach, both of which are controlled by public hospital districts.Community Health Systems, which is based in Franklin, Tenn., has large concentrations of hospitals in states such as Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Texas. In Florida, its hospitals are Lake Wales Medical Center and North Okaloosa Medical Center.

Oft-discussed but never executed, Caputo found himself ready to hit the road after absorbing a doubledose of unblinking mortality in 2010: The death of his father at age 94, and his fastapproaching 70th birthday.This gauzy sense of grief and melancholy more psychic miles in the rearview mirror than over the next horizon permeates The Longest Road.Caputo and his wife, Leslie, and their two English setters, Sage and Sky, set off in 2011 from tropical, freewheeling Key West for the bleak, oil-company outpost of Deadhorse, Alaska, above the Arctic Circle. They rented a vintage 1962 Airstream trailer named Ethel, towing her behind a Toyota Tundra with a hardtop cab where the dogs bed down during a four-month journey covering 8,314 miles.In interviews, Caputo has invoked Steinback, Kerouac and William Least Heat Moon as his road-tripping lodestars. But hes also treading the well-worn terrain of Alexis de Tocqueville, trying to define the American experience. Caputo wants to know what keeps the nation together after a two-front war, increasingly polarized political extremes and a growing chasm between haves and have-nots. With enough time, gas, money, and nerve, I could drive from the southernmost point to the northernmost point reachable by road,he writes. At one end, I would look upon the Gulf Stream and the Southern Cross, and at the other, the Arctic Ocean and the Northern Lights. I would leave my country for part of the journey, but not my language or my culture. And possibly I would discover along the way what Inupiat Americans and Cuban Americans and every other kind of American had in common besides a flag. Caputo purposely plots a course filled with two-lane blacktops and small towns over the homogeneous efficiency of the interstates. They take their time winding out of Florida and the Deep South via the Natchez Trace. In the Midwest, they pick up the historic trail of explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark and loosely follow it along the banks of the Missouri through the Badlands, across the Rockies and along Oregons Columbia River to the Pacific. Caputo effectively sprinkles references from Lewis and Clarks journals during the passages through wide open spaces. They encounter a diverse and occasionally colorful cast of characters along the way. Askilled and seasoned reporter, Caputo strikes small veins of storytelling gold when they exist. They spend some bittersweet moments volunteering with others in the aftermath of theBut Caputo doesnt reach past heightsBy LARRY LEBOWITZBOOK REVIEW See Book,3B Dolphin bite slows downRegardless of your target species, the best times to fish right now are sunrise until 10 or 11 a.m., and later in the evening into dark. Youll need to pull every trick out of your sleeve to find keeper dolphin right now. Thats not to say there arent tons of them around. There are. Look anywhere from 15 to 35 miles out and youll find them sometimes on weeds, sometimes under birds, sometimes both. But the majority is just shy of the legal size of 20 inches to the fork of the tail. The blackfin tuna bite is sporadic, but there are enough wahoo on floaters or very large weed patches to keep things interesting. The wrecks are offering up plenty of amberjack and large jack crevalle, along with a decent bite on mutton snapper up to 15 pounds or so. Live ballyhoo is your bait of choice, but live pinfish will work in a pinch. On the reef, the yellowtail, mangrove and mutton snapper are biting pretty well, with most of the larger mangroves being taken at night. The 60to 80-foot depths are the areas of choice this week. The patch reefs are holding a fair share of good-size mangroves as well as keeper-size yellowtail and the occasional red grouper. As a reminder, Aug. 1 is the day the commercial lobstermen put their traps in the water in anticipation of the Aug. 6 opening of the eightmonth commercial and recreational lobster season, so be extra mindful to avoid their gear. You dont want to wrap their fresh, unsoaked lines in your props or motors. Nor do you want to damage their gear before it has a chance to do its job.The weeks bestOn his first day of fishing on the Klimax for SeaSquared Charters, Capt. Chris Klimas took the Gilbert and Garcia families to the reef on two separate trips. Both groups caught limits of mangrove and yellowtail snapper.The SeaSquared also fished multiple trips to the reef with excellent snapper catches coming back to the dock for groups from Florida, Texas, North Carolina and Georgia. In addition, we fished three shallow-water shark adventures where our anglers caught and released anywhere from 10 to 17 lemon sharks.Casting contestCapt.

Mans ashes still travelingThe following came to us from Chrysse Langley, general manager of the Glunz Ocean Beach Hotel and Resort in Key Colony Beach. Its a unique only-in-the-Keys story.Atrue treasure from the sea washed up on the beach of the Glunz Ocean Beach Hotel & Resort in Key Colony Beach on July 21. Partially buried in a pile of seaweed was a plastic water bottle with a note, money and sand at the bottom. Judi Glunz Sidney, one of the owners of Glunz Ocean Beach Hotel and Resort in Key Colony Beach, was visiting with two of her sisters, also owners of the hotel, and their families, who were vacationing at the resort. Each morning she would walk the beach looking for shells and treasures from the sea and she would pick up the debris that washed ashore overnight.This particular morning, she found the bottle. The top was sealed tight, so they very carefully cut open the top of the bottle and found two notes. The notes revealed that lying at the bottom of the bottle was not sand, as Judi first thought, but the ashes of a womans beloved husband of 27 years.The Tennessee woman says in her note that her husband and love of her life, Gordon Scott Smith, a.k.a. Skinny, loved to travel and in March 2012 she put his ashes, her note and money into a bottle at Big Pine Key and asked for whoever finds her beloved husband to call her to let her know where he traveled and then send him on his way again.So far, Gordon has stuck to the Florida Keys in his travels. We think its because he loved to visit here. He left from Big Pine Key and found his way to Islamorada and was found by a gentleman named Ross. He called Gordons wife as requested, took his boat out six miles into the ocean and again sent him traveling.When Gordon alighted on the beach of the Glunz Ocean Beach Hotel and Resort, another call was made to Gordons wife and a second call to Ross, who had added his note with a more detailed explanation of Gordons story and also a request to be called.Gordons wife told the Glunz family that he was a sweet man with a passion for traveling; everyone loved him and she was so thrilled that other people were hearing his story. Her niece also called after seeing a Facebook post and recognizing it as her uncles story. She reiterated what a super guy Gordon was. With much flourish, Judi and her family moved Gordon to a new plastic rum bottle (you know, to have a little fun along the way), and added her note and another dollar bill. To assure that Gordon would have options of where to go, he was wished bon voyage at the Seven Mile Bridge, with a celebration of life ceremony, and sent sailing into the Gulf Stream. This is evidence that we all love a great story, especially a great love story.KCB woman is the second to find themMIDDLE KEYS GORDON How to boat with your dogSome dogs were born for the water, others less so. The key to boating with dogs, says the Boat Owners Association of the United States (BoatUS), is taking it slow and making safety No. 1. Here are eight tips to get you started:Before you go:Get a good-fitting life jacket and have the dog wear it a few times around the home before it gets on a boat. Any pet life jacket should have a handle to easily lift the animal out of the water.Have a special ID tag with the name of the boat, marina, slip number and cell-phone number on it just in case. If the dog gets lost, its a lot easier for the person who finds it to get them it to you quickly. Getting started:Familiarize the dog with the boat slowly dont just get on the boat and leave the dock right away. Ideally, bring the dog to the boat for the first time without leaving the dock, and give it a chance to sniff around and get its sea legs. It may help to start the engine so its used to the sound.Plan for falls overboard, either from the boat or dock. If the dog falls overboard underway or jumps in you may be able to circle back and retrieve Fido just like a fallen water skier, pulling up slowly, cutting the engine and luring the dog to the swim platform with a treat.If you dont have swim platform, smaller dogs may be lifted over the side by their life jacket handle, but bigger dogs may require a different solution. If a dog falls off a dock, know that seawall bulkheads may prevent the animal from a self-rescue.Bring plenty of water and make sure theres some place the dog can get out of the sun and stay as cool as possible. Know the symptoms of dog heat stroke. While seasick dogs may vomit, thats also one sign of heat stroke. Rapid, loud or difficulty breathing, extreme thirst, thick saliva, disorientation and a bright red tongue and pale gums are a few of the others.If youre going to be out on the boat for more than a few hours, plan on how your dog will relieve itself and pick up after your dog, no matter where it goes. If you see where someone else didnt pick up after their dog, pick it up for them. You dont want to give any opportunity to show why dogs shouldnt be allowed in your marina, and your boating friends will love you for it.First thing?

Other highlights include some quirky Tennesseans living off the grid after losing their homes when the bubble burst in 2008 and an entrepreneurial Lakota Sioux chef named Ansel Woodenknife. The narrative suffers a tad from the man on the street phenomenon: As thousands of rookie reporters know, sometimes the man on the street isnt interesting and doesnt have much to say. A prescient Missouri farmwoman tells Caputo the belief that Americans have a lot in common binds us together even if its not really true. By the end, Caputo has learned as much about maintaining his marriage in cramped quarters as he has about the boundless hope at the heart of the American character. At this stage in a distinguished career, expecting a novelist and Pulitzer-prize winning journalist of Caputos stature to reach the heights of his classic Vietnam memoir A Rumor of War, or riveting novels such as Horn of Africa and Indian Country is unfair. Such classics are where readers new to Caputo should begin if they want to gain a more complete appreciation for his body of work. But although The Longest Road isnt seminal, its an easy, entertaining and at times provocative summer read. Larry Lebowitz is a Miami writer. This is reprinted from the Miami Herald.Some interviews dont come throughFrom Book,1B Hunting Chea riveting readIcon of Cubas revolution. Symbol of youthful rebellion. The face on trendy T-shirts. Those are some of the public perceptions of Ernesto Che Guevara, the Argentine doctor who helped Fidel Castro topple Fulgencio Batista on New Years Day of 1959 and to execute hundreds of Cubans at the La Cabana prison in Havana.But he looked like a hobo when he was captured and executed in Bolivia in 1967, his wild hair and beard matted with dirt and wearing a shirt with no buttons, at the end of a long hunt by U.S.trained Bolivian troops and Cuban-born CIAagents. That hunt is described in the new book by two journalists, Pulitzer Prize-winner Mitch Weiss and The New York TimesKevin Maurer, co-author of No Easy Day, a bestseller about the Navy Seal mission that killed Osama Bin Laden. Even those who have read the many previous works on Guevara will find new material in Hunting Che. Theres the tale of the 16 U.S. Green Berets who trained the 640-man Second Ranger Battalion of the Bolivian army specifically to track and battle Guevara and his guerrillas, a mixture of veteran Cuban fighters and Bolivian supporters. Theres the role of the U.S. ambassador in La Paz, Douglas Henderson, who allegedly downplayed the communist threat to Bolivia and seemed to throw roadblocks in front of the Green Beretsefforts. And theres the CIAand Department of State bureaucracy back in Washington, still unsure that Che was dead even days after one of the intelligence agencys Cuban assets had heard the gunshots that killed him and another had buried his body. The details that Maurer and Weiss dug up add a more clear and readable understanding of the hunt for Che than previous accounts, most of them highly personal tales written by key participants who lacked the authors access to multiple players and U.S. archives. The authors pay special homage to Maj. Ralph Pappy Shelton, the aboutto-retire Green Beret who took on one last job, the politically and military risky task of training the Bolivian Ranger units in 1967.In a year when 400,000 U.S. troops in Vietnam were straining to fight an essentially guerrilla war, Shelton was showing how a small group of U.S. Special Forces could train local forces to successfully fight local guerrillas. Shelton picked a bright Bolivian army captain, Gary Prado, to advise the trainers from the ground up on how the 19-week program was progressing. He stalled when La Paz wanted to cut short the training and rush the Rangers into the fray after Ches presence in the Nancahuaz area was confirmed.But the Mississippi native also insisted on building a school in the village of La Esperanza, home base for the Rangerstraining. He also played his guitar at night in the bar where Green Berets, Rangers and locals gathered over a few beers.Che had disappeared from public eye in 1965, after vowing that the Cuban revolution would spark two, three, or many Vietnams, and trying his hand at a guerrilla war in the Congo before landing in La Paz on Nov. 3 1966.Bolivia seemed perfect for his oppressed of the world rise up campaign. It was poor, politically unstable, with porous borders with five countries and a woefully inept military made up of 6,200 conscripts and 1,500 career soldiers.But in the end, the countrys peasants did not answer his call to revolution, nor did the Bolivian Communist Party come through with its promised aid. Castro also abandoned him to his own fate, and the Rangers performed well if at times brutally.And while the Green Berets were not allowed to follow their trainees into the battle zone, Felix Rodriguez and Gustavo Villoldo, the two Cuban exiles sent by the CIA to advise the Bolivians in the hunt, were right in there.Two weeks after the Rangers finished their training and deployed to the Nancahuaz area on its very first mission, most of Guevaras men had been captured or killed. Only three managed to escape through the border with Chile. Che was captured by Prados company B and executed on the spot Oct. 9 1967, on the orders of President Rene Barrientos. Rodriguez was one of the last people to speak with him, and Villoldo buried his body in secret. The remains were recovered 30 years later.More details than ever are in new bookBy JUAN O.TAMAYOjtamayo@elnuevoherald.comBOOK REVIEW This is Che Guevara the day he was captured on Oct.9,1967.The man on the left is Felix Rodriguez,who has spoken about that day when hes appeared at the Friends of the Marathon Library book discussion group the past two years. Golden years shorter, sickerIf youre 65 and living in Hawaii, heres some good news: Odds are youll live another 21 years. And for all but five of those years, youll likely be in pretty good health.Hawaii tops the charts in the governments first stateby-state look at how long Americans age 65 can expect to live, on average, and how many of those remaining years will be healthy ones. Retirement-age Mississippians fared worst, with only about 17.5 more years remaining and nearly seven of them in poorer health.U.S. life expectancy has been growing steadily for decades, and is now nearly 79 for newborns. The figures released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate life expectancy for people 65 years old, and what portion will be free of the illnesses and disabilities suffered late in life.What ultimately matters is not just the length of life but the quality of life, said Matt Stiefel, who oversees population health research for Kaiser Permanente. The World Health Organization keeps healthy life expectancy statistics on nearly 200 countries, and the numbers are used to determine the most sensible ages to set retirement and retirement benefits. But the measure is still catching on in the United States; the CDC study is the first to make estimates for all 50 states. Overall, Americans who make it to 65 have about 19 years of life ahead of them, including nearly 14 in relatively good health, the CDC estimated. But the South and parts of the Midwest clearly had lower numbers. Thats not a surprise, experts said.Southern states tend to have higher rates of smoking, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and a range of other illnesses. They also have problems that affect health, like less education and more poverty.These are issues that build up over a lifetime, so its doubtful that moving to Hawaii after a lifetime in the South will suddenly give you more healthy years, they said.After Mississippi, Kentucky, West Virginia and Alabama had the lowest numbers for both life expectancy and healthy life expectancy. States with the best numbers included Florida a magnet for healthy retirees as well as Connecticut and Minnesota. The estimates were made using 2007 through 2009 data from the census, death certificates and telephone surveys that asked people to describe their health. The CDCs Paula Yoon cautioned not to make too much of the differences between states. Results could have been swayed, for example, by how people in different states interpreted and answered the survey questions. Other findings:Nationally, women at 65 can expect nearly 15 more years of healthy life. Men that age can expect about 13 years.Blacks fared much worse than whites. They could expect 11 years of healthy life, compared to more than 14 for whites.By MIKE STOBBEAssociated PressTO YOUR HEALTH LIVING BRIEFSShoemakers Wife discussed FridayThe Marathon Book Discussion Club meets at 10 a.m. Friday at the Marathon library, mile marker 48.3, at 10 a.m. to discuss The ShoemakersWife.

Its easy to toss together a delicious (and nutritious) salad that goes way beyond the lettuce-tomato-cucumber routine that becomes all too tiresome all too quickly. For our anything-but-boring salad, we started with the base. Hold the romaine and iceberg; we wanted something with a bit more interest. Not wanting to give up on greens altogether, we opted for a mixture of arugula and Swiss chard. Together, they make for a fantastic combination of peppery and colorful leafy greens.To go on the greens, we needed something zippy. Something with pizazz. Stone fruit packs a punch of flavor and brightness. We used nectarines, but plums or peaches would work just as well.Rounding out the salad, we added thinly sliced cucumber and celery for crispness. We really didnt want to go the crouton route, but we still wanted some crunch. Nuts are another option, but we went with roasted chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans). They pack a whole lot of fiber and protein and are easy to throw together. You just coat them in olive oil, add some seasonings, and toss them in the oven.To add just a little bit more oomph to your salad, top the whole thing off with one of the protein suggestions. Whichever you choose, youve got a flavor-packed salad thatll keep you from getting bored. What you need:Two 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained, rinsed and dried with paper towels.Five tablespoons olive oil, divided.One teaspoon curry powder, Old Bay or Cajun seasoning blend.Salt and ground black pepper.Four tablespoons rice vinegar.Four teaspoons brown sugar.Two teaspoons Dijon mustard.One bunch Swiss chard, chopped.5-ounce package baby arugula.One seedless cucumber, thinly sliced.Four stalks celery, thinly sliced.Three nectarines, pitted and thinly sliced.
