Stories, 1B Everglades helpMore Tamiami Trail bridges are coming to increase Everglades water flow. Story, 3A Budget hearings start todayMajor projects, pay raises and reserve funds will be on the agenda today in Key Largo when the Monroe County Commission opens formal hearings on a proposed $414.75 million budget for the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1. Commissioners already have established a maximum tax rate of 4.0167 mills, or $4.02 per $1,000 of taxable assessed property value. At that rate, a property in the unincorporated county with a taxable value of $300,000 would pay about $1,206 for Monroe County services, including the Sheriffs Office. That does not include property taxes levied for schools, mosquito control or other special districts. The tentative millage is lower than that levied this year, but exceeds the rollback rate by 2.67 percent. The rollback rate is the tax rate needed to raise the same amount of money from property taxes approximately $75 million as in the current year. Other revenues for the county include fees and state revenue sharing. Mayor George Neugent said Friday he will push to reach the countys rollback rate of $3.92 per $1,000 of taxable property value. Were still in a situation where some residents would feel even an incremental increase in ad valorem [property] taxes, Neugent said. Theyre already looking at increased premiums for windstorm and flood insurance, Neugent said. So I think weve got to work more on being more efficient so we can hold the line on issues that will impact taxes.

Fish pioneer Hommell dies at age 88George Hommell Jr., renowned as President George H.W. Bushs flats guide and co-founder of Islamoradas World Wide Sportsman store, died Saturday. He was 88. Born in New York state, Hommell moved to Islamorada in 1945 and played a large role in making the Keys the sportfishing capital of the world. George brought presidents to us, said Gary Ellis, founder of the Redbone Celebrity Tournament Series. In Mangrove Mikes, theres a photo of Ted Williams holding up a bonefish. George is polling the boat, Ellis said. Those two probably did more for this fishing community than anyone can imagine. My father dedicated his life to promoting and perfecting the sport of backcountry fishing and conservation, said Mariellen Hommell. It was just fun being with George, said World Wide Sportsman manager Mark Klingbeil, who worked with Hommell for 15 years. He was an inspiration to everyone here. He had 100,000 different stories, Klingbeil said. If you were planning a trip somewhere, he had a story about it. Ellis recalled how Hommell willingly shared advice and customers with a young crew of budding guides in the 1960 and 1970s.There were only a few guides in town and we all relied on him, Ellis said.

She said swimming 100 miles is a challenge but the 110-mile swim from Havana, this 100 miles is impossible. This time I got lucky, she said on CNN. The waves were tough. But the Gulf Stream was my friend; usually its not.She described to the cable news network what its like to be in the water for more than two days: Its a very isolating experience even though I have 35 people around me. Youre singing Neil Young songs to yourself, counting in French, German and Spanish. But when youre suffering, now youre not thinking of anything. Youre just coping and surviving.Its not the destination, its the journey, she told the network. But this time the destination really brought me into a state of euphoria. All the emotional high is wiping out any physical problem there is. This was Nyads fifth attempt to cross the Florida Straits.

Although the commission is eyeing a slight decrease in the municipal property tax rate for the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1, growth in citywide property values will mean a slight increase in annual assessments. The current tax rate is $2.9185 per $1,000 of assessed property value. For the owner of a $300,000 house, that equates to an $875.55 city tax bill. The citywide assessed property value grew year over year by 4.32 percent to $5.3 billion, according to the Monroe County Property Appraisers Office.For the owner of the $300,000 home, that means the tax bill next year will be based on a proportionate increase in value to $312,960.Applying the proposed millage rate of $2.8815 per $1,000 of assessed value would mean $901.79 city tax bill, a year-over-year increase of $26.24. That lower tax rate supports proposed spending of $41,305,565, up from $40,879,931 in the current fiscal year.Tax rate lower, but overall spending growsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTKeynoter Staff Photo by ANDY NEWMANDiana Nyad completes her journey Monday in Key West.It was her fifth attempt at swimming across the Florida Straits.See Nyad,2ASee Key West,2ASee Hommell,2ASee Budget,2AShe recounts swim from Cuba to Key West
George knew the waters and fish so well, Ellis said. To a young guide, it was like having a direct connection to God. With a relaxed demeanor not common to all flats guides, Hommell attracted a clientele that included luminaries like Paul Newman, Jack Nicklaus and Dan Rather in addition to Williams and Bush.He was a founding member of the Islamorada Fishing Guides Association that promoted release fishing.Amilitary veteran of World War II and Korea, Hommell taught himself to fly fish the flats and then shared his techniques with others. He created the first beadeye fly, named the Hommell Evil Eye. With famed angler Billy Pate, Hommell opened the original World Wide Sportsman in June 1967 as a specialty tackle shop and travel agency in Islamorada. Fly fishing was at the heart of the store, Klingbeil said. They built the business and a reputation that made it one of the most-pursued destinations for anglers coming down.Pate, who died in 2011, and Hommell collaborated to design fishing gear that has become a sport standard.Hommell met and befriended Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris, who purchased the World Wide Sportsman and hired Hommell to run it as general manager. The current location opened in October 1997.George still held that position until he died Saturday, Klingbeil said. He dedicated his life to his sport and store. He carried quite a legacy.Survivors include Doris, his wife of 60 years; son, George III; and daughter Mariellen. As well as a lifetime of friends and fishing buddies, Mariellen said.Acelebration of life is being planned. Memorials donations are suggested to the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust (www.bonefishtarpontrust .org) or Florida Keys Wild Bird Center ( www.fkwbc .org ).He carried a legacyFrom Hommell,1A HOMMELLthe first person to complete the treacherous swim without the wave-breaking aid of a protective shark cage. Her voyage took 52 hours, 54 minutes and 18.6 seconds to complete, according to Nyads team. She began Saturday at Marina Hemingway. She was welcomed at Smathers by about 2,000 people awaiting her arrival. We should never give up, an exhausted Nyad told the crowd.The crowd at Smathers swarmed her in the water, applauding and waving American and rainbow flags. In typical Key West fashion, conch shells sounded. Nyad walked out of the water when it became too shallow to swim. Her lips were swollen by jellyfish stings and her mouth bruised by face gear she wore.People from around the world tracked Nyad on her website and rooted for her on social media. President Obama and Gov. Rick Scott took to Twitter to congratulate her. Never give up on your dreams, Obama tweeted. Despite a Sunday-night storm that brought winds of up to 23 knots and bouts with nausea, Nyad made good time in the first half of the swim, with about 51 strokes per minute. Afavorable current helped her average about 2 mph per hour, and by about 5 a.m. Monday she was on course to conquer her dream. The greatest variable here is the extension of human endurance, said her navigator, John Bartlett, who led her escort boat, the Voyager. For Nyad, the journey began in 1978, when she first tried with a shark cage but came up short. She gave up swimming for decades, but conquering the Florida Straits continued to eat away at her. So in her 60s, she plunged back into the water and trained to regain her old form.With a good marketing team that helped raise the hundreds of thousands of dollars needed to support such an endeavor, she made her second attempt in 2011. She was hampered by shoulder pain and an asthma attack. Months later, jellyfish stings ended a third attempt.Last year, she tried a fourth time. The jellyfish got her again. She was pulled from the water, her face badly swollen. On this latest swim, she wore a specially designed prosthetic face make that also covered her lips but made it difficult to swim. The second night, she used a protection cream, dubbed Sting Stopper, that was created by jellyfish expert Angel Yanagihara and the University of Hawaii. Key West resident Roger McVeigh paddled one of her support kayaks. He called Nyad one of the most amazing people you could ever meet. Key West city staff on Tuesday was working on a resolution honoring Nyads achievement to add to the City Commissions meeting agenda Wednesday night.

At this point, I really believe we owe it to our employees, she said. The countys proposed operating budget stands at about $284 million, with approximately $132 million of new projects and overdue road repairs in the capital improvement budget. The suggested purchase of the former Rowells Marina, eight acres of nearly vacant land on Key Largos Florida Bay shoreline, could be one of the most controversial items. Im very hopeful about Rowells Marina, Murphy said.Commissioners Danny Kolhage has said he will oppose the purchase, estimated at $5 million, as nonessential. Commissioner Heather Carruthers also has concerns about the costs of buying Rowells.Kolhage has said he does not like County Administrator Roman Gastesis plan to reduce the countys reserves by $5 million to help keep the lid on property taxes, and wants to maintain current reserve balances. Formal budget hearings begin at 5 p.m. today at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center in Key Largo, mile marker 102 bayside. Other budget sessions will be 5 p.m. Sept. 9 at the Marathon Government Center and 5 p.m. Sept. 12 at the Harvey Government Center in Key West.Marina buy not yet setFrom Budget,1ACity reserves have grown from $9,837,515 to a projected $11,100,000. It costs around $111,000 per day to run the city, meaning that in the event all revenues stop, the city could continue operations for 100 days.Meeting tonightThe commission holds its regular meeting tonight starting at 6 p.m. in Old City Hall with a light agenda.Among items the commission will consider: Changing where visitors arriving on tour buses are dropped off in Old Town. Sponsored by Commissioner Tony Yaniz, the proposal is aimed at relieving congestion around Clinton Square, the current drop-off point, by switching to egress at 525 Angela St., the citys former city hall and attendant parking lot. The commission is also expected to pass a law that would establish a $50 clean-up fee for customers who throw up in local cabs. The first reading of the law, which will be posted in vehicles for hire, passed unanimously earlier this month. The commissions regular Tuesday meeting was moved to tonight because of Labor Day.Bus dropoffs are changingFrom Key West,1A Boot Key acquisition is a city priorityThe Marathon City Council last week OKd $16.61 million worth of potential projects it will pursue as part of the federal Restore Act of 2012. The act would establish a trust fund setting aside 80 percent of pending civil penalties related to the April 2010 BP/Deepwater Horizon for states along the Gulf of Mexico coastline. The Deepwater Horizon oil-rig exploded in the gulf off Louisiana, killing 11 crewmen and spilling, according to numerous reports, roughly 205 million gallons of oil into the gulf. Civil penalties are related to the resulting environmental and economic damage. Potential city projects include acquiring the 1,100acre Boot Key as an ecotourism destination ($6 million), citywide canal restoration ($5 million) and improvements to Sunset Park at the foot of the Old Seven Mile Bridge ($3 million). Sunset Park upgrades would be contingent on eventual repairs to the old Seven Mile Bridge. The state Department of Transportation owns the bridge and is negotiating a deal with Monroe County where it could pay a large portion of estimated $18 million repair and turn ownership over to the county. In other business: The council unanimously approved a pair of lobbying contracts it hopes will help secure $20 million in state sewer funding in 2014. The city will pay Ronald L. Book P.A. and Ballard Partners Inc. $5,000 per month each for two years. They replace longtime city lobbying firm Floridian Partners LLC. Book and Ballard were the councils top choices from among 11 firms to send letters of interest when Floridians contract expired on June 30. The $20 million in state funding would be the citys portion of the so-called Mayfield grant, a $200 million authorization approved by the state Legislature in 2009. The first $50 million of that grant went to Monroe County ($30 million) and the village of Islamorada ($20 million) in 2012 to jump-start their respective sewer projects. Marathon was slated to receive $20 million (from the next $50 million grant) in 2013, but the funding was pulled and Gov. Rick Scott made it clear he only wants to fund shovel-ready projects. The citys estimated $101 million project is all but complete. The council approved a $1.55 million contract for fiscal year 2013-14 police services with the Monroe County Sheriffs Office. The contract increased $81,794 from the current year, due in large part to engine replacements for the Sheriffs Office patrol boat used in Marathon, as well as 3 percent pay raises and an increased contribution required by law to the employee Florida Retirement System. However, the Sheriffs Office has returned an average of $77,834 in underbudget funds to the city at the end of each fiscal year since 2004. That includes $164,074 in 2011 and $168,747 in 2012.Council plans for expected Restore moneyBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONWaterfront land back with cityThe Key West City Commission is poised tonight to officially end its relationship with the would-be developers of an assistedand independent-living facility on the Truman Waterfront.The nonprofit Florida Keys Assisted Care Coalition, in partnership with private developers, had attempted for a decade to build senior housing on four acres of the 33-acre waterfront, ceded to the city by the U.S. Navy in 2002. The commission in 2008 granted the coalition a ground lease for the property fixed to a June 28, 2013, deadline for submission of a major development plan. That never happened, so sitting as the Naval Properties Local Redevelopment Authority, the commission tonight will vote to officially terminate the lease. Commissioners will be presented with two resolutions that have the same net result but vary in semantics.The first one says the coalition failed to submit a development plan while the alternate resolution reads that despite its best efforts, the Florida Keys Assisted Care Coalition Inc. was unable to meet the requirements.The deal fell apart when city staff negotiating with the coalitions private developer, Wendover Housing, was unable to agree on lease terms annual rent, return of any profits, duration and assignment for the actual building and operation.Coalition board member Bookie Henriquez said his group will continue to advocate for senior housing and work closely with Wendover despite the pending lease termination.While the deal is soon to be dead for the waterfront concept, Commissioner Tony Yaniz is working with the Key West Housing Authority on a potential site on Kennedy Drive next to the Henry Haskins Senior Citizens Plaza.The commission meets tonight beginning at 6 p.m. in Old City Hall on Greene Street.

The U.S. Navy on Friday released a final environmental impact statement that guides future explosive, sonar and gunner exercises occurring in more than 2.6 million square miles of the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico including waters around the Florida Keys.The Atlantic Fleet Training and Testing document was widely vetted by the Monroe County Commission, an advisory panel and hired consultants from firm Keith and Schnars.The training increases are broad and include more air combat maneuvers such as dog fights between planes, from 5,700 per year up to 6,840; an increase in air platform testing from 10 to 12 per year; an increase in gunnery exercises from 36 to 70 per year involving 56,000 non-explosive rounds going into the water; flare exercises using more than 4,500 flares; and the annual release of 30,000 canisters of chaff, a radarfooling countermeasure. In a statement issued by U.S. Fleet Forces Command in Norfolk, Va., the military said, The results of this study, which incorporates the best available science, coupled with the Navys demonstrated track record, indicate that the activities proposed in this [statement] will continue to have minimal effects on marine mammal and other marine species populations. County Commissioner Heather Carruthers said the county would continue to work with Navy officials to minimize local effects.She cited work by Keith and Schnars, the countys Growth Management Department and members of an advisory environmental impact statement committee in vetting the study.I was really pleased with the work product but not quite so much with the Navys response, she said. But were going to keep plugging away so they can perform their mission with as little impact as possible. Among concerns articulated to the Navy was the impact of training debris on dolphins and other marine life in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Lower Keys residents also are concerned about increased jet noise from Naval Air Station Key West. The last comparable study was completed in 2009. The full document is at www .AFTTEIS.com Wednesday,September 4,2013 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com D Navy report: More operationsBut military says no effect on wildlifeBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMILITARY Lobsterrelic likely goneAspecial lobster license that once allowed certain recreational harvest of 50 lobster per day may soon become legally extinct. For practical purposes, the state-issued Special Recreational Spiny Lobster License already has become a relic of the past. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission issued just 46 of the special licenses in the 2011-12 fiscal year, and none in the current year.This repeal will eliminate the possibility for the publics confusion over the ability of a person to purchase the license, says a report to the commissions board.The FWC board will consider the recommended repeal during its meeting Thursday and Friday in Pensacola.Spiny lobster was declared a restricted species in 1994, meaning commercial fishermen had to show they sold a certain amount of lobster to qualify for the restrictedspecies endorsement.Monroe County accounts for the vast majority of Floridas commercial lobster harvest. The Special Recreational Spiny Lobster License was created to allow fishermen who had a license to sell fish and a lobster endorsement but did not meet standards for the restricted-species endorsement to continue catching lobster for personal use at a rate beyond the recreational limit. There were 522 special licenses, costing $100 each, issued in 1994. The daily bag limit for the special recreational license remained at 50 until 2005, when action was taken to begin phasing out the license by lowering the bag limit. By 2013, the bag limit was five per day lower than the general recreational limit of six lobster per day. If endorsed by the FWC board, the repeal will be forwarded to the Florida Legislature for action. In other FWC matters, the commission will be asked to review more than $10 million in possible cuts from the agencys next budget. Among staff recommendations to the FWC board are cutting 42 law-enforcement positions, for a savings of $2.2 million. Another large cut would take $3.6 million from the invasive-plant management program. In a smaller proposed cut, the state would transfer $192,000 from expenses at the Keys Marine Laboratory on Long Key to the Florida Institute of Oceanography.At one time, 50 could be takenFISHERY ISSUESBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comOverseas drama could end todayThe long-running drama surrounding the former Overseas Liquor & Lounge building in Marathon just doesnt seem to want to go away. This time it involves several local attorneys who claim the city of Marathon is deliberately interfering with them finalizing the sale of the much-publicized property at mile marker 49 bayside. Buffalo, N.Y., resident Tim OConnell is under contract to purchase the Overseas but could not follow through with a scheduled closing on Aug. 28 because city Planning Director George Garrett had yet to sign off on a state liquor license application. It went as far as attorney Richard Warner, co-personal representative for the estate of Joseph Ardolino that owns the property, filing a 15-page petition Thursday morning to request an emergency hearing the same day before acting Circuit Court Judge Ruth Becker. The hearing was granted, but ultimately delayed until 2 p.m. today because Marathon City Attorney John Herin was out of town.Warners petition claims Garrett purposefully delayed signing off on the routine application. It includes a box for Garrett to certify that liquor sales are allowed they are in the propertys mixed-use commercial zoning.Not the case, says Garrett, who told the Keynoter he didnt receive a complete city alcoholic beverage permit application until late Aug. 28. The city application is required before Garrett can sign off on the state version. Garrett said he signed the state application and hand delivered it to OConnells attorney, Tom Wright, on Thursday afternoon. It was reviewed ... and issued at 4 p.m. It has a letter attached relating some pending code issues, just to let [OConnell] know, Garrett said. That appeared to make todays hearing unnecessary, until attorneys realized that Garretts letter intimated a question about the ownership of a parcel mistakenly transferred by the city to the Ardolino estate in a 2008 road abandonment. The City Council granted the estate ownership of Old State Road 4Ain November 2008. It runs behind the Overseas building from the adjacent parking lot at Annettes Lobster and Steakhouse to the Stuffed Pig Restaurant.But according to Garretts letter, the parcel could still be the property of the state Department of Transportation.In a Friday e-mail to Warner, Tom Wright said it is simply impossible to close with a pending city objection to title. It is increasingly clear that the city is desperate to interfere with the closing by whatever means necessary, he wrote. This needs to be resolved prior to closing. The Wednesday hearing is a necessary vehicle for this. Garrett said those claims are also untrue and said potential issues surrounding the parcel in question were conveyed verbally at least three times. He also said the notification was a neutral statement, not an objection. Im sorry if putting that in writing is putting people in a tailspin but theyve been well aware of it for over a year, Garrett said. Todays hearing is scheduled for 2 p.m. before Judge Becker at the Marathon Courthouse. Wright said on Tuesday that the attorneys were trying to work out the title issue and that it might be cancelled. OConnell is already working with adjacent property owners as he plans the redevelopment, Wright said.Title issue appears to be final holdupBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON$90M pledged for Tamiami bridgesAwet summer apparently prompted Gov. Rick Scott to commit $90 million to send more fresh water to Florida Bay and the south Everglades by bridging more of the Tamiami Trail. Scott has pledged $30 million annually for three years to share in the estimated $180 million cost of building 2.6 miles of new bridges along U.S. 41, better known as the Tamiami Trail. Scott spoke about the need last week while in Fort Myers.South Florida environmental groups hailed the news that Florida would match proposed federal money to build more bridges, which would increase natural water flow into the Everglades and improve water quality in Florida Bay by removing the dam thats the road.Bridging the Tamiami Trail has been an Audubon priority for more than 20 years, Julie Hill-Gabriel, Audubon of Floridas director of Everglades policy, said. Its all about recreating the natural north-to-south flow of fresh water into Everglades National Park and Florida Bay. Sending more fresh water under U.S. 41 can reduce unnaturally high salinity levels in Florida Bay, a critical water resource for fish, birds and other wildlife. Seagrass dieoffs and algae blooms have been traced to the manmade problems afflicting the bay.Rainfall over South Florida this summer has been nearly 20 percent above the historical average. That raised the level of Lake Okeechobee to worrisome levels, forcing water-management agencies to pump lake water into canals that carry it to the Indian River estuary on the east coast and the Caloosahatchee River estuary on the west coast. The sudden surge of fresh water laden with nutrients into both estuaries caused really incredible damage to those local ecosystems, Hill-Gabriel said. There are huge toxic algae blooms. In places, the water is not safe to touch, let alone swim in. Appeals for relief reached the governor.This $90 million investment will be a huge step forward in our efforts to restore water quality throughout South Florida, Scott said in a statement. Every drop of water that we can send south and keep out of the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie estuaries is a win for Florida families. Scott said the states share of the bridge money would come out of the state Department of Transportation budget.The Obama Administration included $30 million in its proposed budget for the first year of the Tamiami Trail project. Congress may consider the request when it returns from its summer break, but passage is far from certain.The first bridge built to improve water flow under the Tamiami Trail, a one-mile span just west of Miami, opened in March after four years of construction. That was a critical first step, but it was only a first step, Hill-Gabriel said. By itself, it wont do nearly enough to connect the flow to Florida Bay and the Everglades. The proposed new bridges would be about five miles farther west, at the north end of the Shark River Slough. The east side [of U.S. 41] is where the road being there causes the most problems, Hill-Gabriel said. The road doesnt let the water go where its needed most. More trail workIn an effort to move additional water south from the EvergladesWater Conservation Area 3, the South Florida Water Management District plans to use heavy equipment to excavate a flood control channel through the old Tamiami Trail.The Water Management District says the work will allow water to flow freely into the L-29 Extension Canal and Everglades National Park. The project will work in conjunction with Tamiami Trail bridging projects that are also increasing water flows to the south.

This term is used for the examination of a dead body and conservatism is by no means dead, not dead in this country. The Republican Party must make some changes in messaging and tone if we are to regain the presidency and control of Congress. We Republicans have become experts in how to provide reinforcement to people that think like us (preaching to the choir) but we seem clueless to how to attract and welcome those who do not agree with us on every issue. No wonder they call us out of touch, close-minded and the party of the rich, white, stuffy old men. Sadly, there is truth in some of those characterizations. Our message must be inclusive to those who share some but not all of our conservative principles. Instead of sounding like accountants, we must show empathy to those people that need government. And when we talk about fiscal responsibility, we must speak out when companies liquidate themselves and executives receive large bonuses but the average worker is left unemployed, and when chief executive officers receive millions of dollars in retirement packages but the middle class have not had a raise in years. We must show that we conservatives care about people, teaching Americans that big government harms everyone, regardless of demographics. This shouldnt be hard since most Americansliberty is violated by the government on a daily basis. On social issues, we must change our tone and allow this to be something personal. I, for one, Im pro-choice, even though it is not a choice I would make but will not judge someone that does. On these issues, we need to be tolerant and respectful to other peoples beliefs and ideas.We must put significant effort in our message and talk about people and families, not just numbers and statistics.Danny Coll Cudjoe Key I start this column with some reservation because I know that sometimes written columns and letters to the editor only bring forward more opportunity for opposing reaction instead of the intended message. However, I feel it necessary to bring some clarification and justification to the actions by the Monroe County Tourist Development Councils District Advisory Committee for Marathon (DAC 3), and its recommendations for funding allocations for the Original Marathon Seafood Festival and other special events that were funded for fiscal year 2014. Let me first explain the objective of the TDC special-event funding program. The program is intended to give funding support to an organized event that generates overnight visitors to the destination, as well as entertain visitors and market the destination.Under the funding grant application, the TDC is not to be the only advertising and marketing source of funding. Event organizers are required to make available their own funding to promote the event.The TDC has two types of events. One is called a Destination Event, which only receives TDC funding for advertising or promoting the event. The second is called a Turnkey Event, which must be an event that provides the highest level of economic impact to the destination, predicated upon justification in resulting room nights generated by event attendees. The funding payment is given after the event is completed and is to offset some of the operational costs of providing the event, including marketing. The Original Marathon Seafood Festival is held in March each year, the busiest tourism month, and has always in the past requested to be a Destination Event, and has always been funded for advertising dollars.This year, for the first time, the organizers applied as a Turnkey Event, and were by definition required to show they produced a high amount of room nights (heads in beds) for the event.After much discussion, DAC 3 voted on whether the event qualified as a Turnkey Event based on whether the event put heads in beds or was it a great event which basically entertained and gave the visitors a good experience in Marathon. The majority of the DAC voted that it was not a Turnkey Event but a Destination Event, because research data from the Smith Travel Research Report showed that every weekend in March had a very high level of room occupancy and room rate whether there was an event or not.So the DAC voted to allocate the highest level of advertising to the event, which was $30,000. Thirty thousand dollars to promote an event at the height of the tourist season is a significant amount of funding to support this event. Again, the organizers must also contribute to promoting the event with their own funds. All the local Marathon event applicants who requested funding from the TDC received funding. The Marathon Grand Prix of the Sea received the maximum for a Destination Event of $30,000. Heroes Welcome Weekend requested $30,000 and received $30,000. Sombrero Beach Run requested $10,000 and received $10,000. The so-called Key West events (Fantasy Fest and Petersons Poker Run) were also funded by the DAC because the events have an economic impact in Marathon during two of the slowest times of the year (September and October). DAC 3 has been funding Fantasy Fest for many years, as do the Islamorada and Big Pine Key DACs. However, there is no linkage between the amount the seafood festival received and the amount any other event received, including Fantasy Fest and the Poker Run. Again, the Seafood Festival received the highest level of funding under the Destination Event category. Finally, on the role of the District Advisory Committee for Marathon: The members are volunteers who commit their time to help the TDC and local businesses to market and develop tourism to Marathon. They are local residents who are trying to give their best judgment and efforts, knowing that they have a lot of responsibility lying on their shoulders. They recommend media placement to advertise the destination and have to review applications for capital projects and special events, and then recommend funding allocations to local organizations, local government and business owners. If you think that is easy, you are wrong. The members live and work in Marathon, and saying no to any community applicant is a hard thing to do. They also have to operate under the TDC guidelines, just like a jury does under judicatory guidelines.TDC policies and the event organizers written application is what primarily determines the amount of funding for an event. Again, the DAC members are volunteers, and give their best efforts, and they do not deserve some of the demeaning comments recently made about them from individuals who dont know the facts about their responsibilities nor take the time to ask for them.It is always best to get the facts and hear both sides of a situation before voicing an opinion. Harold Wheeler is director of the Monroe County Tourist Development Council. Labor Day should mark more than the official end of summer. This holiday pays tribute to the workers who create our nations wealth and strength. At the same time, in honoring the working man and woman and in recalling the contributions of the labor movement in our society we acknowledge the inherent dignity and value of human work. Work allows us to participate in Gods own work of creation and affords us the means to support our families and contribute to the common good of all. This Labor Day finds us as a nation struggling with the difficult and important issue of immigration. Immigrants, whether they arrive through official legal channels or not, come seeking work and a better life for their families. And whether they come as skilled or unskilled workers, agricultural laborers or to join family members already working here, they come, in part, because U.S. employers need their labor and our economy, even in these difficult times, depends on them. Agriculture relies heavily on them to harvest our crops. Our meat and poultry industry, which offer some of the lowest paid and highest risk occupations in the United States, has a workforce that is almost half immigrant. Our hospitality industry, not to mention our ever-growing health-care sector, relies extensively on foreignborn workers. Without the immigrantslabor our economy would have huge gaps. Our immigration laws have not kept up with this demand for labor, which is why so many jobs are filled by those who come into the country without legal sanction. And despite their lack of permanent legal status, most of the estimated 11 million undocumented in our country are working and these laborers contribute to the common good of our nation by the work they do and the taxes they do pay. While reasonable people may disagree on how our nation should respond, any effective response demands that we recognize that immigration is more than a border-security issue but is essentially about our labor markets and the men and women who fill the jobs that continue to make America strong. As a son of an immigrant from Poland who, as a priest, worked most of my life with immigrants from Haiti and elsewhere, I have shared in the daily struggles and dreams of those who come to this land seeking freedom and opportunity. I have witnessed their resolve to give their children a better life. And this is why I am convinced that America, founded on the ideals of liberty and justice for all, can and must find reasonable and responsible ways to welcome them. By helping those without legal status come out of the shadows and contribute more fully to our communities, we can, at the same time, strengthen the security of our nation and the vitality of our society. The immigrants have come because they want to live out the values we celebrate this Labor Day hard work, providing a decent living for ones family, contributing to the community, a life of dignity and opportunity gained through honest work. We can honor these values by moving beyond the divisiveness and partisanship that has marked the recent debate on immigration. We need comprehensive immigration reform which includes a path to earned legalization for those already working in our country, as well as one that meets future labor needs through a temporary worker program. Such a reform can help ensure that workers are not exploited and at the same time protect the rights of foreign-born and U.S. workers. Everyone working in our country should have a safe workplace, wages and employment benefits to support their families, and the protection of labor laws, including the right to organize and have a voice. The immigration debate this Labor Day challenges us to consider again who we are as a nation, how our economy treats all workers, how we welcome the strangers among us. Immigration is not just a political issue, but a fundamental human and moral issue. For the immigrant workers are not faceless numbers but human persons. They are our brothers and sisters; they are our neighbors and coworkers. Justice and prudence demand that we treat them with dignity and find a reasonable way for their contributions and presence to be recognized within the law. After all, Labor Day should honor the contributions of all the workers in this great nation. Thomas J. Wenski is archbishop of the Archdiocese of Miami, which takes in the Keys. This is reprinted from the Miami Herald.While other states get aggressive educating their residents, ours is obstructing ACAat every turnAs the date for implementation of the Affordable Care Act draws near, Americans across the country are receiving useful information from state governments to help them understand how the new law works and how to get the maximum benefit out of it. For example:In Connecticut this month, beachgoers will be handed packets of sunscreen printed with Get Covered and the logo and website for Access Health CT, the states health-insurance exchange.In Colorado, TVcommercials tell the public how to obtain coverage through the states new insurance market, helping to eliminate the anxiety and confusion that usually accompany a major change of this kind.The states insurance exchange has received about $180 million in federal money to be up and running by Oct. 1 and to cover the first years operating costs. It expects to spend $21 million on marketing and advertising.In Nevada, a $2.8 million campaign that includes spots on TV, radio, billboards, newspapers and social media is making sure that the states residents are ready for enrollment and coverage.These aggressive efforts to help residents cope with the new law are fully backed by the respective state governments, but in Florida its a different story, of course.Health centers in this state have been awarded some $8 million for outreach and enrollment assistance, no thanks to state government, which refused to set up its own exchange and is doing nothing to help administer the new law in any visible way. Furthermore, not content to just sit on their hands, Gov. Rick Scott and the Cabinet are going out of their way to throw a monkey wrench into the process. Late last month, they raised phony questions about privacy protection involving the navigators who will educate consumers about the new healthcare options and walk them through the enrollment process. This is nonsense. The navigators must comply with privacy and security standards and will not obtain consumers information without their consent.Why is the Cabinet suddenly taking an interest in the welfare of health-insurance consumers? If the state cared at all, it would have set up its own insurance exchange and backed the effort to the hilt. Instead, it refused.There have been sins of omission, such as refusing to help set up exchanges or get the word out to consumers. A number of private groups across the state, including unions, business associations and medical and hospital professionals, are actively involved but not the state Department of Health or the Office of Insurance Regulation.And there have been sins of commission, as well. The worst was the Cabinets decision to forgo the right to regulate rates for plans listed on the health exchange. With the state bowing out, the federal government may wrongly get the blame for higher premiums, even though it has no authority to deny rate increases. The campaign against the Affordable Care Act by Scott and his Republican colleagues is a major disservice to the people of Florida, particularly the estimated 3.5 million uninsured residents who could take advantage of the insurance exchanges. State government has let down its residents.

The Summer Library Program was a huge success due to the efforts of Mark Giffen, who worked very hard to bring this all to fruition. We are especially indebted to our local sponsors, Sweet Savannahs Ice Cream Shop and Centennial Bank, for donating the prizes for our annual read-a-thon and giving children an extra incentive to keep reading over the summer. Special thanks are also due to the Friends of the Marathon Library, whose generous support allowed us to provide quality programming that struck the right balance between learning and fun. We also want to recognize the people and organizations who donated their time and expertise, including the rangers from Bahia Honda State Park, Kelly Grinter of the Wild Bird Center, Michele Williams from the Florida Public Archeology Network, Elizabeth Moore from Sea Science and the editorial staff of this newspaper. Thanks also to the many parents who helped out, and to the teachers from Stanley Switlik Elementary School, the Community Co-Op and Kreative Kids Academy who supported us in countless ways. And most especially, thanks to the kids who made it all worthwhile. Thank you all. Gloria Goodman, manager Marathon library

Florida No.2 in uninsuredFlorida had the nations second-hi g hest rate of residents without health insurance with almost one out of four Floridians lackin g it, accordin g to new U.S. Census fi g ures released Thursday.Only Texas surpassed Floridas rate of 24.8 percent of residents under a g e 65 without health insurance in 2011, the most recent year fi g ures are available, the Census said. Althou g h that fi g ure was down sli g htly from 2010, when 25.3 percent of Floridians were without health insurance, the rate of uninsured residents has inched up since 2008, when just over 24 percent of Floridians were without health insurance.The half-decade spike in uninsured residents comes as the Republican-controlled Le g islature ruled earlier this year not to expand Medicaid covera g e to an estimated 1.1 million low-income Floridians under the federal health law.In an unusual alliance, Gov. Rick Scott, Senate Republicans, Democrats, Florida hospitals, health advocates and a diverse mix of business and labor g roups all supported a bill that would have drawn down more than $50 billion from the federal g overnment over the next decade and allow Floridians to purchase private insurance. But leaders in the GOPled Florida House refused to consider that proposal, sayin g they didnt want to take funds tied to President Obamas health care overhaul.Democrats and health advocates have since held town halls around the state pushin g Scott to call a special session to discuss Medicaid expansion, but Scott has said he isnt plannin g to call one since House leaders havent si g naled a chan g e of heart. House Democratic Leader Perry Thurston (D-Fort Lauderdale) warned in that Republicans will play a political price for failin g to expand Medicaid. The Le g islatures failure to expand health covera g e continues to punish workin g families and small businesses throu g hout Florida. Scott and other Republican leaders who say they want to improve Floridas business competitiveness and ima g e can make g reat headway by reducin g this states abysmally hi g h number of uninsured, he said. Floridas lar g e numbers of small businesses, which currently arent required to provide health insurance, as well as its tourism-oriented economy with lar g e numbers of workers in service jobs have contributed to its historic hi g h rate of the uninsured.That will chan g e under the Affordable Care Act, which requires business with 50 or more employees to offer covera g e. But the Obama administration recently announced it would delay that provision for another year. The law also requires individuals to carry health covera g e startin g in 2014 or face a rou g hly $100 fine.People can still g o online and shop for insurance on the new state exchan g e startin g Oct 1. The new marketplaces will have the feel of an online travel site where residents can compare different private insurance plans. Consumers will be able to choose from plans that offer a ran g e of premiums, deductibles and copays dependin g on variables such as how many doctors that a person wants included in his or her network.Residents makin g less than $48,000 a year will receive a federal voucher to help offset premium costs. Anyone makin g below the poverty line, $11,490 for an individual or $23,550 for a family of four, wont be eli g ible for subsidies throu g h the online marketplace. The law had assumed that many additional people would g et covera g e throu g h an expanded Medicaid pro g ram, but the U.S. Supreme Court left that decision up to each state. Florida continues to have one of the hi g hest uninsured rates in the country, especially amon g those who would benefit most from the state expandin g Medicaid. The data continues to pile up, the only question is whether le g islators will do the ri g ht thin g in the next session and accept the federal dollars or continue to play politics with the health and economic security of Floridians, said Joan Alker, co-executive director of Geor g etown Universitys Center for Children and Families in Washin g ton, D.C. Counties with lar g e numbers of farm workers led the state in uninsured residents. At the top of the list were Hendry County (35 percent); Miami-Dade County (34.4 percent); and Glades County (32.9 percent).Only Texas la gg in g behind Sunshine StateBy KELLI KENNEDYAssociated PressINSURANCEN ew: Fry BurgerBur g er Kin g says it will start offerin g what it calls a rench Fry Bur g er for a buck as it looks to fend off McDonalds a gg ressive push for its Dollar Menu.

But in the latest quarter, Bur g er Kin g said its sales at North American restaurants open at least a year slipped 0.5 percent.

The Royal Navy sailors aboard are in the Southernmost City for rest and relaxation after completing counter-narcotics operations in the Eastern Pacific.Theyve been deployed since February. Despite sale, lawsuit movesAlthough the sale of U.S. Navy housing at Peary Court in Key West to a private developer has gone through, the Monroe County Property Appraisers Office lawsuit against the Navys private housing partner seeking $11.5 million in back taxes continues.Navy spokeswoman Susan Brink from Naval Facilities Engineering Command in Jacksonville confirmed the sale of the 24-acre, 160-unit Old Town neighborhood to White Street Partners LLC, which includes developers Everett Atwell and Nelson Stabile.In 2007, the Navy transferred ownership of 895 houses in Key West to the private company Southeast Housing LLC. Aprevious tax exemption, based on federal ownership, went along with the transfer. In 2011, then-Monroe County Property Appraiser Karl Borglum reversed the exemption and filed an $11.5 million lien seeking back taxes, penalties and interest for the military housing spread across Sigsbee Park, Trumbo Annex, Truman Annex, Peary Court and the Branch Medical Clinic on South Roosevelt Boulevard. Southeast is challenging the lien in Monroe County Circuit Court and the matter is heading for a Nov. 20 trial. Chief Judge David Audlin will preside over the planned three-day trial at the Freeman Justice Center in Key West. Property Appraiser Scott Russell said that while the $1.7 million Peary Court lien, part of the $11.5 million total, was satisfied with the sale closing, It doesnt change anything. The court case is still proceeding. What happens now is with the new owners, that property in its entirety will go at its full value on the 2014 tax roll, he said. Ayear ago, the Key West City Commission approved a change to the density requirements at Peary Court to allow White Street Partners to build 48 additional units, allowing for compliance with the citys requirement that 30 percent of redevelopment be dedicated to income-eligible affordable housing. White Street is in the process of coming up with a final design scheme, which will have to go back to the commission. The Peary Court sale price has not been disclosed but is rumored to be in the $30 million range.

Stories, 2B Dolphins open with a big winOne of the largest and rowdiest crowds in recent memory was behind the Marathon High School football team when it needed them most Friday evening. De-fense chants filled the air as the Dolphins tried to protect a 27-20 lead over Deltona Trinity Christian School inside the Marathon 20-yard line and just 20 seconds left in regulation. The Eaglesquarterback overthrew a fade route on first down, and the crowd erupted when Marathons Sean Roberts ended the drama with an interception in the back corner of the end zone to seal the seasonopening victory. That was the biggest crowd weve had in years. The kids fed off it and Im happy the town came out and hopefully well have more people next week, coach Lance Martin said. The Dolphins struggled with the Eaglesspeed early, allowing several big plays and trailing 20-13 at the half. We didnt see speed like that last week and we cant simulate it in practice, Martin said, referring to a 42-12 preseason win over Hillel Community School. We adjusted in the second half and tried to contain it a little bit. We have bit more depth than them and we knew we could wear on them a little bit, he added.The Dolphins did just that, as 240-pound senior running back Cooper Chaplin punished the Eagles defense with one physical run after another in the second half.Chaplin carried 23 times for 158 yards and scored three touchdowns and a twopoint conversion.

Fellow running back Deonte Stemage watched as trainer Richard Fuentes stretched Anilusleg, which was encased in adidas gray camouflage pants (new to the team). Half-consumed bottles of an orange sports drink completed the scene. We gotta play, Stemage said to his teammate. Mine hurts as much as yours, but we gotta go. Moments before, the ConchsJohn Pozzi, filling in for Mehki Sargent (also a cramps victim), had run six yards for a touchdown to tie the game with Coral Springs Charter, 27-27, to the delight of a crowd that nearly filled Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium. But when Anilus got to his feet, he and Stemage looked out to see a Coral Springs player return the ensuing kickoff for a TD that put the Panthers ahead, 33-27. Considering everything that had happened before, that was no surprise. The Conchs had begun the game with a 28-yard run by Stemage and a 32-yard pass to the 1-yard line from Andrew Freeman to Lawrence Marius. Freeman scored on the next play and then ran for a two-point conversion and an 8-0 lead. It was Freemans debut at quarterback. Long and lean, crewcutted under his red helmet, he played the role with white shoes and white socks up to his knees. The great start quickly turned sour. Three Conch fumbles led to three Panther TDs two scoring passes from quarterback Joe McChrystal, who also scored on a 15-yard run and a 218 game. A65-yard run by Sargent cut the lead to 21-14, but just as quickly, McChrystal retrieved a bad snap and heaved a pass to a wide-open Nick Grecco to make it 2714. Johnny Hughes, the Conchbearded coach, was not pleased. Key West came right back on a 35-yard pass from Freeman to Stemage that sparked a drive that ended when Stemage scored from the 1 to get the Conchs toClose game but victory not in cardsBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST FOOTBALLCanes look strong in openerNeeding less than two dozen offensive plays to score five touchdowns and a field goal, the Coral Shores High Hurricanes bolted to a 37-0 halftime lead Friday on the way to a convincing win over Archbishop Carroll.Cane reserves were on the home field before halftime, and wholesale substitutions took place throughout most of the second half, played under a running clock, before ending at 37-12.Halfback George Jacobsen raced through holes opened by the Cane offensive line for 258 yards on a mere six runs. He scored on runs of 54, 12 and 81 yards, and finished with a 79-yard ramble.Backfield mate Henry Jacobsen, the other half of the twin-brother speedsters, scored on runs of 38 and 10 yards to end with 78 on six carries. Much of the credit goes to the Cane blockers: Jake Niedbalski, Benny Cosme, Sam Acker, Andy Bautista and David Williams, with relief from Chris OBerry. The biggest improvement in a team comes between the first and second games, and that was true of our offensive line, head coach Ed Holly said, noting the upgrade since the Aug. 23 kickoff classic.

Theyre scarce now, but that can change any day. Look for birds or a good weed line and you may find some. However, the tuna bite at the humps has picked up. The blackfin average eight to 10 pounds, with a scattering of black bullets up to 20 pounds. The smaller fish are taken trolling little tuna darts, with black/purple, pink/white and blue/pink the hot color combos. Large live baits pilchards and pinfish fished 200 to 300 feet deep are working for the bigger tuna. There are also plenty of skipjack tuna around the humps. Most people dismiss these but, if bled and iced immediately, they make great table fare.The mutton snapper bite is pretty good on the wrecks and artificial reefs. Most average 10 to 12 pounds, with a few in the high teens. Live baits, such as ballyhoo, work best. Plenty of amberjack and quite a few king mackerel are in the same areas.On the reef, the yellowtail and mangrove snapper bite remains very good. Most of the yellowtail action takes place in 60 to 80 feet of water, while the mangroves are in the 40to 50foot areas. There are some yellowtail mixed with the mangroves in the shallower depths, but theyre smaller than those found deeper. The patch reefs are also producing plenty of snapper action as well as lots of cero mackerel, with some approaching six to seven pounds. The best bait for the ceros is live ballyhoo. In the bay waters, lobstering continues to be good and the mangrove bite is coming along nicely, with loads of fish in the twoto threepound class to keep everyone in the family happy. Go to the grass banks and shallow wrecks for the snappers. Snook season is now open for the first time since the cold snap of 2010.

Participants help marine scientists at Key Largos nonprofit Coral Restoration Foundation after attending educational lectures to learn about environmental impacts on Floridas reefs. Following the lectures, divers set out to employ their newly learned skills at an offshore coral nursery. The one-acre underwater plat houses endangered staghorn and elkhorn corals, two reef-building species with the best chance to proliferate into new habitats. The nursery is the only one of its kind on the East Coast.Upper Keys and Key Largo-area dive operators offer coral restoration workshops, including a series at the Amoray Dive Resort set for Sept. 12 to 15 and Nov. 1 to 4.The programs include twotank dive trips as well as a perperson participation fee that supports the Coral Restoration Foundations efforts and its education center. For details and reservations, contact the Amoray Dive Resort at (800) 426-6729.Since 2007, these educational dive trips have been part of the volunteer arm of the Coral Restoration Foundation, established in 2000 by Ken Nedimyer, now its president. Aformer tropical fish collector and liverock aquaculture farmer, Nedimyer recognized the need for coral cultivation after witnessing the gradual decline of natural reef corals. The foundations goal is to re-establish sexually mature coral colonies that can successfully reproduce and repopulate the reefs. Educational sessions focus on coral health, coralsfunction in marine ecosystems, identification of natural and man-made threats to coral, and ways to protect this resource in the Florida Keys.On working dives at the coral nursery, divers help prune, clean and prepare corals for planting. Then, armed with hand tools and underwater epoxy, they make a second dive at a restoration site to affix the clippings, adhering the coral points to the reef.The process enables diver volunteers of all experience levels and backgrounds to see firsthand the evolution of corals over time. At the nursery, corals are started from a knuckle-sized clipping and grow to 30 or 40 centimeters (12 to 15 inches). After a year on the reef, the corals have grown several inches more and developed multiple branches. In five years, they are strong, independent structures serving as habitat for a variety of tropical fish.

Anotherlionfish derbyDivers who enjoy the Keysliving coral reef can help protect it and give back to the environment in a fun, competitive derby to capture and remove non-native lionfish from Keys waters. In addition to monthly contests and workshops educating divers about safe lionfish collection and removal techniques, the Reef Environmental Education Foundation is sponsoring a one-day derby Sept. 14 at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, located at mile marker 102.5 in Key Largo. Through a continued partnership between the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, REEF, and the dive community, these hands-on opportunities are available for Keys visitors to take action and remove invasive lionfish. Apopular aquarium fish, lionfish are believed to have been introduced to Florida waters during the 1980s. The voracious invaders, whose population is growing rapidly in Atlantic waters, outcompete native fish for food and territory. Derby divers vie for more than $3,500 in prize money. Firstthrough third-place teams are awarded $1,000, $500 and $250, respectively, for the most lionfish captured. Cash prizes also are awarded for the top three largest and smallest lionfish. Teams of up to four people can register. Early registration fee is $120 and includes one pair of puncture-resistant gloves per team. Amandatory team captains meeting is set for 6:30 p.m. Sept. 13.

Last years starting quarterback, Perez was slated to be a featured offensive weapon this season lining up at various offensive positions. He tweaked his back during a scrum for a second-quarter fumble and did not return. Things didnt look good early for the Dolphins, whose opening drive stalled and a poor snap prevented punter Raymond Crespo from getting a kick away. That miscue set the Eagles up at the Marathon 40-yard line and they capitalized with a five-play drive to take a 6-0 lead. The extra point attempt missed wide right. Senior Peter Corcoran put the Dolphins in solid field position after a kickoff return that saw him break numerous tackles before being brought down at the Deltona 45. Chaplin topped off a nine-play drive with his first touchdown of the night from five yards out. The score was 7-6 after a Crespo extra point. But the Eagles responded quickly, scoring and converting a two-point conversion just 1:20 later to make it 14-7 near the end of the first quarter. The Dolphins were methodically moving the ball down the field during their next drive before quarterback Max Elliott fumbled inside the Deltona 20-yard line. The ball flew back more than 20 yards and was recovered by Deltona at the 36-yard line. Perez was injured on the play attempting to recover the ball. Christopher Freeman came up with a huge fumble recovery for Marathon on the ensuing Eagles drive, and the Dolphins reeled off a 10-play drive capped off by a three-yard Chaplin touchdown run with 2:31 left in the half. The Dolphins trailed 1413 after Crespos extra point attempt was blocked, but Deltona made it 20-13 on a 29-yard, fourth-down touchdown pass with just seconds remaining in the half. The second half was a different story for the Dolphins, as the defense largely shut the Eagles down. Chaplin scored his third touchdown of the night on a 41-yard run with 1:20 left in the third quarter. He also converted the two-point conversion to make it 21-20 Dolphins. Elliott scored on a quarterback keeper from eight yards out early in the fourth quarter to make it a 27-20 game. The two-point conversion was no good. Deltona had several chances to tie the game up but the Dolphins defense forced three straight turnovers to end the game. The Dolphins (1-0) are scheduled to host LaSalle High School on Friday at 7:30 p.m.LaSalles next for DolphinsFrom Dolphins,1B within 27-21 at the half. But late in the third quarter all of that back-and-forth action seemed long ago. One score, we got this, Pozzi said on the sideline after chatting with his sister, Gaby, whose video camera had captured his first career touchdown. The fourth quarter began, and the Conchs stopped the Panthers on the Key West 35. Cheered on by assistant coach Dave Burgos who, having just got off work, was still in his blue EMT uniform Key West drove to the Panthers29. Anilus, cramp-free, then sped down the left sideline, streaking past the Conch cheerleaders for a touchdown that tied the game at 33-33. The crowd roared. Gavin Mock kicked the extra point to make it 34-33. And then it happened again. Calvin Jackson Jr. returned the ensuing kickoff 70 yards for a touchdown with 5:19 to play. On their next possession, the Conchs could gain only seven yards, turning the ball over to Coral Springs, which almost ran out the clock. Key West had two last chances from its 36, but two long Freeman passes fell harmlessly, and the long game ended at 10:30 with a 39-34 loss. All that was left was the alma mater. The Conchs will host Ida Baker at 7:30 Friday night.Clock runs out on ConchsFrom Conchs,1BThe weeks bestCapt.

The days of finding a quarter under your pillow are long gone. The tooth fairy no longer leaves loose change.Kids this year are getting an average of $3.70 per lost tooth, a 23 percent jump over last years rate of $3. And thats a 42 percent spike from the $2.60 per tooth that the tooth fairy gave in 2011, according to a new survey by payment processor Visa Inc., released Friday with an update of the companys Tooth Fairypersonal finance app.Part of the reason for the sharp rise: Parents dont want their kids to be the ones at the playground who received the lowest amount. Akid who got a quarter would wonder why their tooth was worth less than the kid who got $5, says Kit Yarrow, a consumer psychologist and professor at Golden Gate University. To avoid that, Brian and Brittany Klems asked friends and co-workers what they were giving their kids. The Klems, who have three daughters and live in Cincinnati, settled on giving their six-year-old daughter Ella $5 for the first tooth that fell out, and $1 for any others. They say that $5 was enough without going overboard. They didnt want other families to think they were giving too much. Then Ella found out that one of her friends received $20 for a tooth. I told her that the Tooth Fairy has only so much money for every night, and thats how she decides to split up the money, says Brian Klems, 34, a parenting blogger and author of Oh Boy, Youre Having a Girl: A Dads Survival Guide to Raising Daughters. Confused about what to give? Ask other parents what theyre giving, says Jason Alderman, a senior director of financial education at Visa. That can at least get you in the ballpark of what your kidsfriends are getting, he says. Alderman gave his two kids $1 a tooth.I think we were on the cheap side, he says. Other families gave about $5 a tooth. One family gave their kid an antique typewriter. I have no idea how they got that to fit under the pillow, he laughs.As part of the companys personal finance education program, Visa offers a downloadable Tooth Fairy Calculator app that will give you an idea of how much parents in your age group, income bracket and education level are giving their kids, says Alderman. The newly updated app is available for iPhones and iPads on iTunes, and the calculator is available on the Facebook apps page.While more money is exciting news for children, parents should take this opportunity to talk saving and smart money habits with their kids and have the same talk with a perhaps overgenerous Tooth Fairy, says Nat Sillin, who runs Visas financial education program in the U.S.How much kids are getting from the tooth fairy depends on where they live. Kids in the Northeast are getting the most, according to the Visa study, at $4.10 per tooth. In the West and South, kids received $3.70 and $3.60 per tooth, respectively. Midwestern kids received the least, at $3.30 a tooth. About a third of all parents surveyed say the Tooth Fairy left a dollar or less. Then there are the heavy hitters.After losing her first tooth, 5-year-old Caroline Ries found a $100 bill under her pillow, along with a brand new My Little Pony toothbrush and a tube of toothpaste. But there was a catch.Her mother, Nina Ries, also left a note saying that the $100 had to go straight to Carolines college fund. The tooth fairy would give her another $20 to spend anyway she likes if she brushes her teeth every day after lunch for a month. She did, and 30 days later Caroline found $20 under her pillow. Visa randomly sampled 3,000 households by phone in July. The survey results are based on the 1,000 of those households that included a child under 13.

Tooth fairy sees inflation Payouts differ by geographyBy JOSEPH PISANIAssociated PressCHILDREN Five odd relief tipsAfter, oh, age 8 or so, you no longer get away with wailing when you get stung by a bee or stub your toe. But unfortunately whether its a much-needed bikini wax or your annual mammogram pain is a part of our everyday lives.It turns out, though, that you dont have to rely only on your aspirin to get relief. Research reveals some quirky but effective natural ways.Shout a four-letter word. Next time you take a spill, dont hold your tongue. Swearing can increase your tolerance for discomfort, found researchers. People could keep their hands submerged 35 percent longer in a tub of ice-cold water when they repeated an epithet in lieu of a more acceptable word. Swearing may trigger a series of physical and hormonal reactions that ease the sting of an injury.Flip through photosScanning your iPhone for loving faces before an uncomfortable test like a mammogram may make it more bearable. Women who viewed pictures of their partners during a lab test reported less pain than those who looked at inanimate objects or strangers. Aloving face may spur the release of chemicals that shut down pain-processing areas of the brain.Drum up a steamy fantasy.Let your mind wander to a sexy encounter to offset acute aches and pains. In one study, participants could withstand more pain and experienced less anxiety during a lab experiment when their minds meandered to something sexual, compared with other people who thought about more vanilla topics.Sniff a green apple. Feel a headache coming on? Munch on an apple or light a similarly scented candle. In one study, when people in the midst of a migraine attack sniffed test tubes containing a green apple smell, the pain improved more than when they sniffed tubes that had no scent. Researchers say it could be a matter of distraction, or it could be that the smell of green apple actually reduces muscle contractions in the head and neck, reducing headache pain. Earlier studies found that the smell of green apples helps reduce anxiety.Visit Van Gogh. Gazing at works by your favorite painter may help ease pain, say researchers at Italys University of Bari. They delivered stinging sensations from lasers to the skin of 12 healthy subjects who were looking at paintings they had previously rated as beautiful, neutral or ugly.
