UNDER THE CREEKKeynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWDavid Stokes of Arrow Directional Boring checks the pressure on the first underwater pipeline installed as part of the Islamorada-to-Key Largo sewer connection. The pipeline, about four-tenths of a mile long, was pulled through a tunnel bored into coral rock 40 feet beneath Tavernier Creek this week. The 32-inch line should pose no environmental threat, engineers say.Voting polls open on TuesdayVoters in Marathon and Key West go to the polls Tuesday to elect, respectively, new city councilmen and a new member of the governing board of Keys Energy Services. In Marathon, running for two available two-year seats (Mayor Mike Cinque is termlimited out) are incumbent Rich Keating, a fishing guide; former Councilman Pete Worthington, a commercial fisherman; and political newcomer Mark Senmartin, who owns a gunshop/pawn shop/ jewelry business. The top two vote-getters are elected.Marathon has 5,850 registered voters. As of Friday morning, 870 absentee ballots were sent out and 417 had been returned. There were 190 early votes cast. Combined, thats turnout so far of 10.37 percent. The past month, the campaign has taken a nasty turn, with fliers mailed out and emails distributed that attempt to smear Senmartin. He says the move backfired, and that hes hearing that people who might not have voted for him plan to do so now. The State Attorneys Office on Wednesday released a report about the flier, which had a bogus name attached to it and didnt contain law-required language for political ads. Prosecutors found that election law was broken but no one could be charged because they couldnt find the source of the mailer. However, former Monroe County Attorney Jim Hendrick says, and the State Attorneys Office confirmed, he facilitated the mailing. Hendrick says in hindsight, it wasnt a good idea. Worthington and Keating say they had nothing to do with the mailer or the e-mail. In Key West, the runoff for the Group 3 Utility Board of Key West seat is betweenTwo in running for Marathon council and a runoff for Utility Board seatELECTION 2013 Keynoter StaffSee Election, 3A Ramsay: Election flier desperateThe Monroe County State Attorneys Office on Wednesday said former Monroe County Attorney Jim Hendrick a convicted federal felon facilitated an illegal political mailer targeting Marathon City Council candidate Mark Senmartin. But there arent any charges forthcoming, State Attorney Catherine Vogel said, as the identity of the socalled Scott Miller, the name attached to the mailer, remains unknown. City Councilman Dick Ramsay said he is disappointed in the way the investigation was handled and potentially concluded. The voters of Marathon are smarter than this. To believe that a convicted felon would do this on his own.... The one-page flier is a copy of a June 12 Code Compliance Board ruling against Senmartin. Also running for council are incumbent Rich Keating and former Councilman Pete Worthington; the top two vote-getters are elected. The code board found Senmartin guilty of illegally removing protected hardwood hammock from his 1515 Bluefin Drive property. He was ordered by the Code Board to pay a $500 fine, $300 administrative fee and plant 10 trees. The mailer urges voters to consider this information before casting your ballot, and is attributed to Miller. The mailer was illegal apparently because it didnt comply with state Statute 106.071(2), which reads:Hendrick helped get Senmartin mailer circulatedBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMARATHONBURNING BOAT Photo courtesy SHERIFFS OFFICEThis 33-foot Chris Craft cabin cruiser caught fire Wednesday behind a house on Jolly Roger Drive in Key Largo. The owner, Robert Doyle, 58, was burned on one of his legs. He told Monroe County Sheriffs Office Deputy Sever Hustad he started the boat just before 9 a.m. and saw a small flame on the battery, which he tried to put out with a rag. He said the rag caught fire and began to spread. Key Largo firefighters extinguished the fire. See Flier, 2AGood year for turtle nestingHe has counted sea-turtle nests in the Key West National Wildlife Refuge for nearly a quarter-century but federal biologist Tom Wilmers never saw a year like this. Its a year beyond my wildest dreams, Wilmers said. Its phenomenal ... fabulous. Wilmers counted 44 nests for green sea turtles in the Marquesas and Boca Grande islands, west of Key West, this summer. That may not sound like a lot, Wilmers said, but consider that from when I started in 1990 to 2001, there were 50 green turtle nests total. In three years, there was no nesting at all. Wilmers surveys for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service track what the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reported Wednesday, a stunning surge in nesting for the endangered species.The number of green sea turtle nests counted by trained surveyors on Floridas index beaches for nesting activity hit 25,553, more than double the count of the previous highest year, said the FWC report.In 1989, biologists in Florida documented just 464 green turtle nests at 26 known nesting sites. Annual counts on the same beaches, called the Index Beach Nesting Survey, produce trend lines for the species population. The index beaches comprise an estimated 70 percent of Floridas green turtle nests. In 2007, Wilmers count-Greens apparently on the rebound, surveys indicateOUR ENVIRONMENTTake Stock signs up 56 studentsThe mentoring/scholar ship program Take Stock in Children, which the Monroe County School District says is the marquee Take Stock program in Florida, signed up 56 income-qualifying middle and high school students this past week at ceremonies from Key Largo to Key West. Under a contract they sign in seventh grade, the students agree to stay crimeand drug-free, maintain good grades and get involved in community service. They also meet once a week with a mentor. If successful through graduation from high school, they are rewarded with a scholarship good for two years at one of Floridas 28 community colleges, followed by two years at one of the 12 state colleges or universities. The educations are financed through public and private money invested in the Florida Prepaid College Foundation. John Padget, vice chairman of the state Board of Education and a former Keys schools superintendent, has taken Monroe Countys lead in Take Stock through the Monroe County Education Foundation. He also signs the contract. For the time youre with us, Padget told new enrollees in Key West, were going to change your life. Thats a promise. Youre going to college.

Any political advertisement paid for by an independent expenditure shall prominently state Paid political advertisement paid for by (name and address of person paying for advertisement) independently of any (candidate or committee). The back page of the mailer reads paid electioneering communication paid for by Scott Miller, 999 98th Street in Marathon. No one by that name lives or has ever lived at that address, a waterfront eight-unit condominium called Ocean Point Villa just down the street from Marathon City Hall. The flier is a desperate attempt by a group of people who are fearing theyre going to lose their local power base, Ramsay said. When Mark is elected Tuesday, were going to move in that direction. It doesnt necessarily mean getting rid of City Manager Roger Hernstadt.A narrow majority of the five-member council supports Hernstadt, and Senmartin has said he wouldnt vote to renew Hernstadts contract when it expires.Ramsay said city officials need to take a top-to-bottom look at how our government runs at every level to ensure everyone gets the same benefit and respect. If staff will not move in that direction, then staff will have to change. Hendrick told investigators in an Oct. 29 interview that Miller contacted him for help in producing and disseminating the flier. In turn, Hendrick asked his son Joseph, an employee of the Market Share Co. marketing company in Key West, to order the mailers printed through Gemini Printing in Marathon and labeled/mailed by Island Advertising in Key West. Gemini owner Denny Curry says he was paid $325 in cash to print 4,500 of the fliers. From the State Attorneys Office investigative report: Jim Hendrick facilitated the mailing of the Senmartin mailer/flyer and coordinated the printing and mailing through Linda OBrien of Market Share. OBrien, whose company has produced Fantasy Fest since 1990, bid and contracted the job to Gemini and Island Advertising. On Oct. 10, Market Share received $2,800 in cash from a person claiming to be Miller. OBrien hasnt returned calls for comment.No invoicesThere are no receipts or invoices related to any of the professional services, according to investigators. Normal business practices appear to have been ignored during this process by the coordinators of this job while neither knowing or identifying the client nor receiving payment for coordinating services rendered, according to the report. Vogel said her team worked exhaustively to identify who is behind Miller, without any luck. Hes described as a white man in his early 50s with short, light brown hair and about 180 pounds. As part of the investigation, none of the City Council candidates were interviewed. Keating and Worthington have denied any involvement. Theyve not returned numerous calls for comment. Investigator Chris Weber said the subject of the investigation was the mailer and the person who paid for the mailer. There was no indication by any party that any candidate had anything to do with the mailer. Should the investigation headed in that direction, we would have gone that direction. Hendrick said I havent met [Miller]. Ive talked with him on the phone. He thought Senmartin was, I think he said, a bad guy.Asked if its normal for him to get calls from people he doesnt know asking for political guidance and help with mailers, Hendrick said, I get calls all the time. Ive been working on campaigns since the Carter Administration.He added, In my view, it got blown way out of proportion. We have a long history in this country of anonymous publications. Im speculating that this Scott Miller was afraid of Senmartins connections. I dont know if I should be paranoid.In hindsight, I should have had some red flags, he added. In retrospect, I should have been more quizzical. My first inclination is an opportunity for Market Share to make money and I throw business their way when I can.Vogel said she has already begun a dialogue with Keys state Rep. Holly Raschein (R-Key Largo) to close that loophole through legislative action. In 2007, Hendrick was convicted in federal court of conspiracy, witness tampering and obstruction of justice and sentenced to five years probation, $50,400 in fines and 2,500 hours of community service.That came out of Hendrick helping facilitate a bribe in 1996 to then-county Mayor Jack London, who was arrested by the FBI in 2004 and died shortly thereafter.At a 2009 resentencing, Hendrick avoided a federal prison term but was newly ordered to serve seven months of house arrest.

Manatees in the Florida Keys appear to have escaped the deadliest year on record for the protected marine mammal. The Save the Manatee Club out of Maitland, north of Orlando, reported that 769 manatees have died this year as of Tuesday. With more than two months still to go in 2013, nearly twice the number of manatees have already died than died in all of 2012, club officials say in a report. The previous worstrecorded rate of manatee deaths took place in 2010 when the extended period of January cold weather chilled waters where the animals usually seek warmth. A total of 766 manatees died statewide in 2010 and 118 of them perished in the Keys and Florida Bay. However, the 2013 mortality can be traced to the environmental collapse of Indian River Lagoon ecosystem, which has been linked to 224 manatee deaths in Brevard County and 40 in Volusia County.A red tide off the states west coast killed most of the 269 manatees that died in Lee County waters, and 31 manatees in Charlotte County.Monroe County has suffered six manatee deaths in 2013, within the average annual range for the Keys. Three of those were attributed to watercraft strikes. We did not have the impact from the environmental conditions that affected the east coast and west coast, said Mary Stella, spokeswoman for the Dolphin Research Center on Grassy Key that handles manatee rescues and recoveries in the Keys. Brian Lapointe, a researcher for the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute, told National Public Radio that the extensive loss of seagrass in the Indian River Lagoon has forced manatees to eat a type of red algae that has become toxic because of the lagoons altered chemistry. The January 2010 cold killed extensive areas of the lagoons seagrass, and this years release of accumulated fresh water from Lake Okeechobee after heavy rains dealt the brackish system another blow. Theres little question that human mistreatment of the Indian River Lagoon had a hand to play in the disastrous cascade that began in 2010, said Katie Tripp, Save the Manatees director of science and conservation.

The next few years were not as special, he said. Then this year just went out of sight. I was stunned. So were state biologists. We are astounded and pleased by the high number of green turtle nests documented in 2013, FWC research scientist Blair Witherington said in a prepared statement. It looks like the years of conservation efforts for this endangered species are paying off.Wilmers said two Keys nests were dug in May, double the number he had ever seen previously in the first month of nesting. It gets busier in June, then July sees more than half the annual nesting activity. Depending on local conditions, it typically takes from 55 to 70 days for a successful nest to hatch.Not all of the green turtle nesters survive, and the mortality rate among hatchlings is high. Beach erosion and sealevel rise are taking a toll, Wilmers said.Turtles that nest in dunes do real well. The best production always comes from the dune nests, he said. Turtles that nest on beach itself tend to have nests flooded. A nest can stand a little submerging but not a lot.Nest counts from the Dry Tortugas, another major nesting area for green turtles, were not available at press time.Green sea turtles, one of five oceanic turtles found in the Keys, were nearly hunted out of existence to feed a demand for their meat and shells. The large and rare leatherback sea turtle also seems to be recovering, with 515 Florida nests in 2012. This years number dipped to 322, surveys shows. Loggerhead turtles, the most common Florida sea turtle, laid 44,810 nests on index beaches this year, down from 2012s nearrecord count of 58,172 nests. Green sea turtles lay only a handful of nests from Key Largo to Key West.Pat Wells, a longtime manager of state parks in the Keys, said, Weve never had many [green turtle nests] along the mainline Keys. We might occasionally see one on Lower Matecumbe Key occasionally. The last few years, weve had three or four.The Save-A-Turtle group this year counted 65 nests on its list of nesting sites, virtually all from loggerhead turtles. We have one confirmed green turtle nest, said group president Harry Appel, and possibly one hawksbill nest. The Keys are losing beaches left and right, mostly to erosion, Appel said. But weve also people putting docks and observation piers on beaches that never had them. Most of these have lighting, which is not a natural thing for the turtles do deal with.Tips on making waterfront areas more lighting-friendly for turtles can be found online at the groups website, www.Save-A-Turtle.org.Good season experts sayFrom Turtles, 1A This is a nesting green sea turtle.

Design plans come up for approvalThe Key West City Commission on Wednesday will consider more than $200,000 in expenditures for design of a redeveloped Community Services building and new docks on Trumbo Point. On the dock design, up for vote is an $111,630 award to international company Stantec Consulting Inc. to design a 204-foot floating dock with nine slips large enough to accommodate vessels up to 50 feet long. The plan calls for a steel-piled pier made of pipe and rated to withstand 150 mph winds. A construction cost will be developed during the design phase. Keeping on the design front, commissioners will also consider spending $100,157 on design services for the community services/utilities building at 627 Palm Ave. That pending award is expect to go to Saltz Michelson Architects of Fort Lauderdale. Right now, the main purpose of the facility is as the citys Transportation Department hub but that function is moving to a new building off College Road on Stock Island. The redevelopment is slated for 2015. In an executive summary, city Engineer Birch Ohlinger justifies says of the plans: All of the existing structures at 627 Palm Ave. are in need of either major renovation or demolition. This task order will evaluate the sustainability of this site for the departments, perform a condition assessment of the existing facilities, develop costs estimates and result in a development plan. Also on the commissions agenda is an emergency procurement of two bathroom trailers from Portable Restroom Trailers LLC for $77,466. The trailers will be placed at the Frederick Douglass Gym in Bahama Village and, just around the corner at the Truman Waterfront, adjacent to the Police Athletic League building. At the gym, mounting structural problems have cut off the interior link between the gym and the bathrooms, meaning children have to walk outside and around the corner to use the restroom.

Itll be staffed by two full-time firefighters 24 hours a day.NOW IN SERVICERecords request: $4,400Continuing to investigate the circumstances around a $10,000 employee raise for a Monroe County School District administrator, district watchdog Larry Murray has been met with a potential bill of $4,400 for public records he requested from district officials.He says its the districts latest effort to thwart public access to documents and information but the superintendent says thats not the case.Specifically, Big Pine Key resident Murray wants to know how Director of Accountability and Assess ment Christina McPherson, who in August also took on the role of Poinciana Elementary School principal, received a $10,000 raise. Murray maintains Super intendent Mark Porter misled the School Board at an Aug. 13 meeting where it was addressed and has filed a complaint with the Florida Department of Educations Office of the Inspector General. Porter denies he misled board members about McPhersons raise. Attempting to put the pieces together, on Oct. 15 Murray put in a five-fold request for e-mails between June 1 and Oct. 15:E-mails from Porter to McPherson.E-mails from McPherson to Porter.E-mails from Human Resources Director Ramon Dawkins to McPherson.E-mails from McPherson to Dawkins.Any e-mails referencing McPherson.Wednesday, Karen Hladik, an executive secretary, estimated that responding to the first four items would cost a minimum of $550 and that adding in the fifth item would be possibly seven times as much.District Director of Operations Pat LaFere said a search of e-mails for the first four items yielded more than 2,000 results. He said a review for redacting personal employee and/or student information is done by an employee earning $30 per hour with the assumption the reviewer can read 120 e-mails hourly. Kind of looks to me like the district is doing its best to discourage public records requests, Murray said.In September, Murray sued the district related to another round of records requests concerning McPherson that was dismissed by Chief Monroe County Circuit Court Judge David Audlin.Porter has a broad explanation. Prior to release, all records must be reviewed to avoid the release of data that may fall within the statutory exemptions. In the case of a request that generates a significant number of responses, this review can be very timeconsuming and thereby expensive, he said. School Board Chairman Andy Griffiths said he wants a case-law review of the reasonableness standard to determine what, in fact, is a reasonable amount of time to respond to these things and how much it should cost.Superintendent says the cost time-consumingBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS

Michael F. Vargason, 55, was arrested by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers Wednesday on a charge of improper display of firearms, a first-degree misdemeanor. No one was injured in the afternoon shooting at Ballast Key, a 24-acre private island lying 10 miles west of Key West, the FWC reported. A witness told investigators that Vargason threatened to kill every one of you if they came ashore on the island that has hosted movie stars, authors, prime ministers and the very rich. The island and its eightbedroom house were listed for sale earlier this year at $15.8 million. FWC Officer Jimmy Johnson said an off-duty U.S. Coast Guard chief anchored at nearby Woman Key told him Vargason fired several shots from an M-16 rifle into the sand and yelled about the music from another boats radio. Several more shots followed, about a dozen in total. Witness statements later were received from the captain and passengers aboard the boat that drew Vargasons wrath. FWC officers took an M16 rifle, a .45-caliber semiautomatic handgun, a shotgun and rifle into custody.

The fact that it is not an official Fantasy Fest event is a strong statement because anyone perusing the offerings at www.Keystix.com looking for tickets to Fantasy Fest events might be confused and think there is a porn convention in town.Sex sells, I guess, but the fact that one of the major sponsors of Fantasy Fest is a swingers cruise ship and that many of the recent official additions to the party lineup are sex-fueled parties hosted by porn stars or playboy playmates has changed the vibe of the Fantasy Fest that I know and love and have attended and supported for 22 years.I am no prude, nor do I mind that businesses host parties catering to whoever they like and I pass no judgments on the lifestyles people choose, but there is a big difference between risque and raunchy, and Fantasy Fest has been veering strongly into the raunchy realm for the past few years. I dont blame businesses for hosting parties that attract the people drawn to such events, but rather Fantasy Fest organizers for marketing to a crowd more interested in sex than creativity. That is why those who presented the Zombie Bike Ride deserve such kudos. Events like that, which are fun, creative and packed with locals, bring to mind the things about Fantasy Fest that made it into the huge success that it has become, and it is why I hope Fantasy Fest organizers are paying attention. You can organize hugely successful and fun events that are not simply excuses for people to walk around town naked. Get back to marketing this as a creative and fun event for adults and not as an XXX-rated event. Michael Blades Key WestNearly half the customers live outside Key West yet dont get their voices heard at the pollsIn a Tuesday runoff, voters go to the polls to elect a new member to the Utility Board of Key West, the panel that sets policy and rates for Keys Energy Services. That utility provides electricity from the Seven Mile Bridge south through Key West. Yet only Key West voters are allowed to vote even though as of September, Keys Energy had 13,145 customers outside the city. It has 15,729 customers within city boundaries. The state Legislature created the five-member Utility Board in 1965. The enabling legislation spells out that only Key West residents are allowed to run and vote. That hardly seems fair. Nearly half the utilitys ratepayers live outside the city yet have no say in the elected boards makeup and cant run. The Utility Boards main function is setting rates and making sure the electricity stays on, and its pretty much the least-political elected body in the Keys. Still, a large bloc of its customers has no say in who gets to set rates and such. And time to time, issues come up recall the decades-long battle to put No Name Key on the grid that came to an end only this past June, when all legal hurdles blocking commercial power to the island were passed. Yet No Name Key residents dont get to vote for the Utility Board (we recognize the No Name issue had legal wrangling that far exceeded the Utility Boards reach). From the Seven Mile Bridge north to the MiamiDade County line, the Florida Keys Electric Cooperative member-owned as opposed to being a public utility like Keys Energy provides power. Everyone whos a co-op customer gets a vote on who runs the show.We believe its time to take a new look at how the Utility Board of Key West is elected and who can qualify to serve. It would take an act of the Legislature to make any change, but the utilitys customers outside of Key West deserve a voice just like those who now have one.Dont forget to vote TuesdaySpeaking of voting, the Utility Board runoff between Vidal and Tim Root isnt the only election Tuesday. In Marathon, voters will choose among three candidates to fill two City Council seats in a campaign thats had a lot of negativity surrounding it. Running are incumbent Rich Keating, former Councilman Pete Worthington and Mark Senmartin, in his first foray into politics. Polling sites: Precinct 18, the American Legion, 4115 Overseas Highway; Precinct 19, the First Baptist Church, 200 62nd St.; Precinct 20, Kirk of the Keys Presbyterian Church, 8877 Overseas Highway; and precincts 21 and 23, the Marathon Moose Lodge, 11601 1st Ave. bayside. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in both Key West and Marathon.Fight flood rate hikesLast year, Congress passed the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act to reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program and make it self-sustainable. This legislation aims to make the NFIP actuarially sound but fails to make flood insurance accessible and affordable, leaving millions of policies holders in Florida and in particular Key West and across Monroe County in dire straits and facing exorbitant rate increases. Further, these outrageous rate increases will harm the countys real estate market and will have farreaching negative economic impacts on the countys tax base. An economic analysis conducted by the National Academy of Sciences is mandated in the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act but was not conducted and could take several years to complete. Without this crucial information, the Federal Emergency Management Agency lacks the necessary information to avoid arbitrary and capricious decision-making in carrying out implementation of the flood insurance program. The threatened injury to policy holders and the public at large is great. This will be more devastating to our economy than the real estate downturn. Already, Realtors are reporting that sales of homes have plummeted over the past month due to a provision in the law that forces flood rates to immediately jump to full risk rate when a property is sold. For example, a Big Pine Key residents $182,000 home received a new quote for flood insurance of $49,252. The previous years annual premium was $1,989. These outrageous rate increases are especially unfair given that Florida is considered a donor state in the federal insurance program, with residents paying roughly $4 in premiums for every $1 in claims. In Monroe County, current policy holders have paid $279 million in premiums since 1978 while receiving $170 million in claims. This serious issue has the potential to halt economic recovery and is why our legislators need to reach an achievable solution to drastic increases in flood insurance premiums. Please express your concerns to Sen. Bill Nelson at BillNelson.Senate.gov, Sen. Marco Rubio at Rubio.Senate .gov and U.S. Rep. Joe Garcia at Garcia.House.gov. Virginia Panico Executive VP Key West Chamber of CommerceFlood rate hikes predictableIt would appear that the shoe is on the other foot regarding flood insurance now. Many Florida Keys residents did nothing and gave little thought to the thousands that couldnt get flood insurance on their new construction/lots for being on a Federal Emergency Management Agency list. Many applauded the list so their neighbors couldnt build their dream homes. At one time, Monroe County Commissioner Sylvia Murphy told me and a group of citizens at a meeting that the FEMA list didnt concern her. All I can say is a saying that has been touted for many years: What comes around goes around. Salvador Gutierrez Hudson, Fla. MARINE BOOSTERS Tuesday night at the Marathon Yacht Club, the Middle Keys Marine Association presented $500 checks to the marine propulsion programs at Marathon and Coral Shores high schools. At the presentation are (from left) Marine Association Treasurer Dave Foley, Coral Shores Chris Catlett, Marathon Highs Glen Naklicki and Marine Association Director Steve Pearson. Navy: More trainingAs expected, Naval Air Station Key West has received federal authorization to increase operations out of Boca Chica Field in the Lower Keys. Earlier this year, the Navy released an environmental impact statement that was approved Thursday by Dennis McGinn, assistant secretary of the Navy for energy, installations and environment, that allows increased flight and training operations, largely aircraftcarrier landing practice. Also authorized is the gradual transition, according to the Navy, from the F/A-18 C/D Hornet to F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighters. F/A-18 E/F Super Hornets, also in use, are not scheduled to be replaced.During the public comment portion of the environmental impact statements development, U.S. Rep. Joe Garcia, who represents the Keys, brokered an Oct. 3 meeting between McGinn, Monroe County Administrator Roman Gastesi, County Attorney Bob Shillinger, county Legislative Director Lisa Tennyson and Mike Davis, director of planning for consulting firm Keith and Schnars, which the county hired to analyze the EIS.In a Wednesday letter to Monroe County Mayor George Neugent, McGinn wrote, After careful review of all the information, as well as all the comments shared during our discussion, he made a decision. Navy officials considered four options for upgrading NAS operations, one of those being no action. They selected the alternative that could increase the number of flight operations out of Boca Chica from 47,500 annually up to 52,000. A take-off and landing are considered individual flight operations. Local concerns include the impact of jet noise on Lower Keys residents and environmental and development compatibility. County Mayor George Neugent said the Navys decision was not a surprise to me. I suspected that, with the money they invested in having the No. 1 Top Gun school in the world here, Neugent said Friday. We wanted to put our best foot forward. At the very least, the Navy indicated a willingness to hear our concerns and work with the county.Neugent calls decision on NAS no surpriseBy SEAN KINNEY and KEVIN WADLOWskinney@keynoter.comTHE MILITARY

Developer Roger Masters, working with the Hollywood-based Prime Group development company, pulled his final building permits from the city on Wednesday. The hotel will have 95 rooms. First thing: Sewer connections. Weve been doing site work, Masters said. Weve taken on several loads of fill. Youll start seeing the piping for the connections as the first phase of the project.When actual construction gets under way at the site, around mile marker 48, on any given day, youll see anywhere from 20 to 40 or 50 people working, Masters said. Theyre going to coordinate multiple things at once.Many of them will be locals, he said.We tried to utilize as many of the Keys contractors that we could, and we did get as many as we could, Masters said. We use quite a few Keys people but we also pulled some people from the Miami and Fort Lauderdale areas.Thats where the Prime Group has done a lot of its work, including building a Hampton Inn and a Courtyard by Marriott in Homestead.Masters said he expects the Marathon Marriott to open by the end of next year. Were excited to be part of the growth of the city, and were happy that both us and the Spottswoods got our projects started, he said. He was referring to the Spottswood Cos. redevelopment of the old Faro Blanco Marine Resort, being rebuilt as a 125-room Hyatt, also on the bayside in the same area.

The Conchs qualified by finishing in the top six (they were sixth) at the Region 42A meet at Mills Pond Park in Fort Lauderdale. The Key West boys team also finished sixth and will return to the state meet next Saturday at Apalachee Regional Park in Tallahassee for the second consecutive year.Coral Shores Highs only entry, Steven Chadwick, failed to qualify, finishing 65th in 18 minutes 58 seconds. A couple of our girls collapsed after the race, said Key West coach Terence White. They wanted it so badly.The Conch girls missed by a point from qualifying for last years state meet, and after Thursdays 5K (3.1 miles) race, they had an excruciating wait for the announcement of the results. When they came to seventh place, we said, Please dont say Key West, White said. The race official said Rockledge and the Conchs basked in their glory. A powerful moment, White said. Running on a tough revamped course against what White said was a sea of unfamiliar jerseys, the Conchs were led by senior Tristin Milliken, who was 16th in 21:12 2:03 behind winner Daesha Rogers of Miami Jackson. The next Key West finisher was Emily Good, who was 22nd in a personal-best 21:30. Our star of the day, White said. Following Good were Jane Welzien (28th, 21:37), Catherine Richardson (38th, personal-best22:06) and Sahara Graft (61st, 23:19).In a 13-team field, the Conch girls trailed only winner Pine Crest, Ransom Everglades, Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart, Cardinal Gibbons and Titusville.The Key West boys team which came in behind Titusville, Pine Crest, Rockledge, Ransom and Calvary Christian Academy was paced by junior Everett Wagner, who was seventh out of 107 runners in 17:27, 1:05 behind winner Joel Lacy of Calvary. Next for the Conchs were Jerry Burgess (33rd, personal-best 18:07), Zach Lightfoot (35th, 18:15), Leif Cisneros (56th, 18:43) and Bobby Black (59th, personalbest 18:49).The Conch boys will try to improve on last years 17thplace finish at the state meet.Team barely makes the cut in LauderdaleBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST CROSS COUNTRYKeys swimmers make the regionalEleven individual athletes and six relay teams from the Florida Keys earned places in the Region 4-1A Swim Meet today in Broward County.

DeRoche made par on each of the last nine holes to jump 12 spots he had begun the day tied for 40th after shooting 84 on Tuesday, his worst round of the season. His two-day total of 161 was 17 over par. The tournament was won by Ponte Vedras Taylor Funk, whose rounds of 68 and 73 gave him a three-over 141 20 strokes ahead of DeRoche. Funk, the son of pro golfer Fred Funk, finished three strokes ahead of Jack Comstock of Jacksonville Bolles. When DeRoche walked off the course Wednesday, he greeted coach John Moeller with a smile. He was glad it was over and the pressure was off, Moeller said.I felt pretty good, said DeRoche, who went to the state finals three times in four years he was 20th as a freshman, 37th as a sophomore.Of the atmosphere at the course, which is not far from Orlando, Moeller said, The first day, you could feel the tension in the air. The second day, you didnt feel it. On Tuesday, DeRoche, bothered by wind and mud, had 11 bogies. Its been a long, long time since I did that, he said. You have good days and bad days.By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST GOLF

Saturday, November 2, 2013 3B Keynoter KeysNet.com Blame Taft for modern obesityWay before Weight Watchers or The Biggest Loser, a president known for his girth was helping to usher in a modern approach to treating obesity.Got a nagging doctor? The 27th president, William H. Taft did, way back in the early 1900s. A medical historian has analyzed letters between the two, complete with food diaries and daily weigh-ins surely recognizable to many of todays dieters.Have a problem with yoyo dieting and weight gain? Yep, Taft did, too. A new report offers a rare peek at the history of obesity, through the experiences of one of the first American public figures to struggle openly with weight and how a doctor aided in an era when physician treatment of obesity was just emerging.Tafts rise to political power coincided with this change in medical thinking, which led to the first celebrity weight loss patient, said Deborah Levine, an assistant professor at Rhode Islands Providence College. Her report, part of research for a book about the course of obesity in the U.S., appeared the journal Annals of Internal Medicine.Sports fans might recognize Taft as the latest addition to the Washington Nationals racing presidents. History buffs know hes the only president-turned-Supreme Court chief justice. But hes also remembered as the president whose weight, at times well over 300 pounds, made headlines.Taft hired British dieting expert Nathaniel Yorke-Davies in 1905, four years before becoming president. Then 314 pounds, Taft was worried about heartburn and other health problems he was famously fatigued, presumably from obesity-caused sleep apnea and possibly also about his career, Levine wrote.The candid exchanges between doctor and patient highlight the ups and down of weight loss.I feel in excellent condition. I used to suffer from acidity of stomach, and I suppose that was due to overloading it, Taft wrote at one point.Dusting off those archives is important to remind people that obesity isnt some scary new 21st-century problem, said Dr. Scott Kahan of George Washington University and the STOP Obesity Alliance.Yes, obesity rates have surged to epidemic levels over the past few decades. But waistlines actually began to expand in the mid-19th century, as food became easier to cultivate and distribute, Kahan said. Diet books and pamphlets began flourishing. Where womens corsets offered some tightening, Levine says obesity belts were developed for men. Even then it was clear there was no quick fix. And if you think high-calorie restaurant food is only a recent problem, well, Taft wrote a relative that all the formal dinners required in politics sabotaged his efforts. In his first year with Yorke-Davies, Taft lost 59 pounds, Levine found, only to regain it. Only after leaving the White House did Taft shed significant weight and keep it off, with help from a different doctor, she noted. Its really, really hard to lose weight and keep it off. If it wasnt, wed all be thin, said Kahan, who was struck by similarities between Tafts struggles and many weightloss efforts today. We recognize this problem as a disease, and yet at the same time we expect people to just be able to manage it once we write down a diet for them.Today, doctors know that for someone whos obese, shedding even 5 percent to 10 percent of the original weight can improve health, he added.Yorke-Davies had written a popular diet book, Foods for the Fat: A Treatise on Corpulency and a Dietary for its Cure. He and Taft had a long-distance relationship. The doctor mailed a threepage list of allowed and forbidden foods heavy on lean meats and reducing sugar, almost a prelude to the Atkins diet. Taft was to weigh himself daily and mail a weekly report.Levine compared the handwritten weigh-ins and the typed letters to the doctor. Sometimes Taft cheated.And Yorke-Davies nagged, politely, but a lot. One month the doctor fussed that Tafts weight loss was only 9 pounds, not the intended 14. When Taft slacked off, the doctor wrote that hed heard you are much stouter than you were a few months ago.Levine concludes that some core practices close doctor-patient communication, tracking weight and food diaries still are in use.The challenge is to find a balance between helpful advice and nagging, said Dr. Mladen Golubic of the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute. Some of the clinics patients opt for daily, personalized emails to track their progress.You dont want to be harsh, Golubic said. But you need to nudge them.27th president known for girthAssociated PressTO YOUR HEALTH Photo courtesy FLORIDA STATE ARCHIVESThis is President Taft arriving in Key West by train on Dec. 21, 1912.

Moment of Grace premiers Nov. 5 at the Red BarnThe Swan and Thistle, a traditional Irish Pub, in Philadelphia, is the setting for playwright Bob Bowersoxs new premiere production, Moment of Grace. On the Red Barn Theatre stage, theater patrons will feel like they can sit down and pull a pint literally. There are real beer taps, whiskey and even a dartboard in this realization on stage. Bowersox, a veteran actor, playwright, novelist and TVpersonality, says this new play came from his own experience. Ive been intrigued with how we each look at love and the many ways we deny or confirm it, he said. Moment of Grace centers on three friends gathered at the pub to mourn the passing of a fourth. Paulie, Joey and Bobby have known one another since they were in diapers. Theyve come to the Swan and Thistle to fulfill a pact made 35 years earlier with their now deceased friend Tommy. That was the reason they gathered, but a stranger who makes a startling revelation derails the evenings plans and forces each man to consider how he personally looks at and deals with love and affairs of the heart. Asituation involving my niece made me realize that so many of us these days dont listen to our hearts, Bowersox said. We instead allow todays powers the media, the church, always-shifting societal and cultural mores, special interest groups, even the Kardashians, for Gods sake to define how and who and when we love. I thought I would be interesting to delve into that a little. An early draft of Moment of Grace was workshopped at the Red Barn as part of last summers Key West Summer Stage. It was Monroe Countys only vehicle in the South Florida Theatre Leagues Summer Play Festival. Bowersox said the packed house for that workshop production remained afterward to discuss the story, characters and themes. The response was very supportive and positive, he added, enough that we were encouraged to proceed. He said feedback from the reading gave him points that helped mold the final draft of the play, which has its world premier Nov. 5 with an opening night party immediately after the curtain in the Zabar courtyard. Because this is a preseason non-subscription event, season ticket holders must buy tickets to see Moment of Grace, which runs through Nov. 23. Ticket prices range from $40-$45 and can be purchased at the theatre box office, 319 Duval St., rear, Key West.

N ow playing nationwide.This reviewer would be r emiss without a warning for movie-goers with a m odicum of taste and style: Bad Grandpa is a lewd and lascivious film, featuring gross and disgusting scenes of mangled and dangled male genitalia, a v icious adjustable bed, criminal abuse of the dead, graphically explosive diarr hea, funerals and weddings t hat go horribly wrong, a m ale strip show that may scar female viewers for life and a kiddie beauty pageant showcasing a raunchy striptease. But, and this is a big but (no pun intended), if audiences can get over the vulgarity and tastelessness that p ermeate the film, Bad Grandpa is a very funny m ovie. Viewers may be surp rised and embarrassed by t he fact that they are laughing so hard and so often. Starring Johnny K noxville, who also cow rote and co-produced, the film is basically a series of h idden camera gags and j okes pulled on mostly decent, unsuspecting peop le, reminiscent of Sacha B aron Cohens Borat. Its t he story of 86-year-old Irving Zismans trip from N ebraska to North Carolina w ith his 8-year-old grandson to take the boy back to h is dead-beat father. Niney ear-old Jackson Nicoll p lays Billy, the grandson, and Knoxville is Zisman. Together, they are a hilarious pair of pranksters and con artists who wreak havoc all the way from Lincoln to R aleigh. Nicoll, who got his start in TVcommercials for H asbro and Pillsbury, also appeared in The Fighter and the remake of Arthur and holds his own very well against Knoxvilles zany antics. His characters r isqu pole dance in the toddler beauty pageant, comp lete with garter belt and stockings, brings to mind a similar pageant from 2006s Little Miss Sunshine. But this time the stunned and shocked reactions of the young participants are real, not scripted, and these parents actually are shielding their childrens eyes from the outlandish onstage routine. Zisman is the character created by Knoxville (real name Philip John Clapp) in the Jackass television series and he plays the obnoxious dirty old man beautifully. Its amazing what people will put up with from what they believe is an old man and Zisman gets away with some wildly inappropriate behavior. The makeup artists deserve special credit for the great job of turning the 42-year-old Knoxville into an old man. Even in closeups, the makeup is flawless and Knoxville is completely unrecognizable. For viewers unfamiliar with the actor, be sure to wait for the end credits to see before and after shots as well as other outtakes. But as funny as the film is, there are a few disappointments. The reactions of the unsuspecting prank victims are more muted than one would expect, ranging from mild bemusement to merely raised eyebrows. The nasty shart scene in the restaurant draws a few moderate scowls, but most people go back to their meals as if it was nothing out of the ordinary. And the scene where the moving men help Zisman move his late wifes body is more creepy than funny. Despite repeated warnings that theyre probably committing a crime, the two men just go along with it, seemingly unconcerned about any possible consequences. Thankfully, later in the film, members of the Guardians motorcycle gang do show some emotion and try to do the right thing by the boy. But only one woman in the entire film rises to the level of real indignation and anger that some of the pranks should elicit. Another weak point is that there is no real danger in any of the scenes, which takes away the element of suspenseful anticipation. Never mind that the plot is superficial, the pranks are gross, and the unwitting participants are not that animated Bad Grandpa is just what you see in the trailers; a very funny, very raunchy, very silly film that will have audiences laughing in spite of themselves. Embarrassed viewers will be looking around the theater, hoping they arent the only ones laughing out loud. And quite a few will take a moment to compose themselves and then exit the theater with a poker face, hoping no one realizes how much they liked the movie. For the brave of heart those viewers who arent easily grossed out Bad Grandpa is definitely worth a trip to the theater.FILM L atin music, culture c elebrated Nov. 9-10The historic San Carlos Institute will host the twoday ;Esperando Nacer! 2013 festival Nov. 9-10.

The Permitting Authority will accept written comments concerning the draft/proposed Title V air operation permit for a period of 30 days from the date of publication of the Public Notice.

Under Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who asked the Permitting Authority for notice of agency action may file a petition within 14 days of receipt of that notice, regardless of the date of publication. A petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above, at the time of filing. A petition for administrative hearing must contain the information set forth below and must be filed (received) with the Agency Clerk in the Office of General Counsel, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, MS 35, Tallahassee, Florida 323993000, Agency.Clerk@dep.state .fl.us, before the deadline. The failure of any person to file a petition within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that persons right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the approval of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, F.A.C. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Permitting Authoritys action is based must contain the following information: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agencys file or identification number, if known; (b) The name, address, any email address, telephone number and any facsimile number of the petitioner; the name, address, any email address, telephone number, and any facsimile number of the petitioners representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioners substantial interests will be affected by the agency determination; (c) A statement of when and how each petitioner received notice of the agency action or proposed decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the agencys proposed action; (f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the agencys proposed action including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules or statutes; and, (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action the petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agencys proposed action. A petition that does not dispute the material facts upon which the Permitting Authoritys action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28106.301, F.A.C. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Permitting Authoritys final action may be different from the position taken by it in this written notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the Permitting A uthority on the application have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. Mediation: Mediation is not available in this proceeding. EPA Review: EPA has agreed to treat the draft/proposed Title V air operation permit as a proposed Title V air operation permit and to perform its 45-day review provided by the law and regulations concurrently with the public comment period, provided that the applicant also transmits an electronic copy of the required proof of publication directly to EPA at the following email address: oquend email@example.com. Although EPAs 45-day review period will be performed concurrently with the public comment period, the deadline for submitting a citizen petition to object to the EPA Administrator will be determined as if EPAs 45-day review period is performed after the public comment period has ended. The final Title V air operation permit will be issued after the conclusion of the 45day EPA review period so long as no adverse comments are received that result in a different decision or significant change of terms or conditions. The status regarding EPAs 45day review of this project and the deadline for submitting a citizen petition can be found at the following website address: http://www.epa.gov/region4/air/ permits/florida.htm.

Section 7661d ( b )( 1 ) to ()() object to the issuance of any Title V air operation permit. A ny petition shall be based only on objections to the permit that were raised with reasonable specificity during the 30day public comment period provided in the Public Notice, unless the petitioner demonstrates to the Administrator of the EPA that it was impracticable to raise such objections within the comment period or unless the grounds for such objection arose after the comment period. Filing of a petition with the Administrator of the EPA does not stay the effective date of any permit properly issued pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 62-213, F.A.C. Petitions filed with the A dministrator of EPA must meet the requirements of 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(2) and must be filed with the Administrator of the EPA at: U.S. EPA, 401 M Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20460.
