Weekend brings thousandsThe Memorial Day weekend of 2014 held true to Florida Keys tradition: Traffic delays on U.S. 1 (one caused by a fatality), thousands of boats off Florida Keys shores and no-vacancy signs brightly lit.The traffic, at times, was horrendous, said Deputy Becky Herrin of the Monroe County Sheriffs Office. We told everybody to expect it and thats the way it happened.Law enforcement agencies were called to a handful of serious incidents, including the car crash that killed a Tennessee woman on West Summerland Key.Virginia Gilbert, 70 of Chattanooga died in the headon crash near the Boy Scout camp at mile marker 34.A 2013 Chevrolet Cruze driven by Cynthia Vanderwilt, 56, of St. John in North Florida was headed north on U.S. 1 about 12:25 p.m. Sunday when it suddenly veered into the southbound lane and into Gilberts oncoming Toyota Sienna. Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Kathleen McKinney said its unknown why Vanderwilt crossed the center line. Gilbert was taken to Fishermens Community Hospital but died of her injuries.A passenger in Gilberts car, Rebecca Gilbert, 35, of Chattanooga also was taken to Fishermens, in serious condition. Vanderwilt was taken to Miamis Ryder Trauma Center with serious injuries. Their conditions were not available at press time.Charges are pending additional investigation, McKinney said. Alcohol is not considered a factor.

The 45-minute flight was just long enough to take in the scenery, but not so long that Aron Banks had to worry about lulls in the small talk. In the air, the 23year-old explained how his planes avionic system works. He pointed to the blue and turquoise waters. His date admired the shapes of the rip currents. Everything was great until they landed in Marathon. Thats when, Banks said, federal agents with body armor and assault rifles surrounded him and his plane.The agents with U.S. Customs and Border Protection asked for his permits. They asked him why he was flying from Opa-Locka to Monroe County. They pressed him to search the plane. Banks refused, but he said the agents didnt take no for an answer. Banks said an agent repeated the question again while squeezing his gun and inching it out of his holster.Im like, You know bro, Im not authorizing anything, but you do what you need to do. And then he starts searching the airplane. The agents found no drugs or weapons, Banks said. They did find $700 in cash, which Banks says he keeps for emergencies. After about an hour and a half, the agents said Banks could go, he recalled. They told him they were just doing their job trying to keep everyone safe. But Banks still felt like a drug runner. He figured his date felt that way about him, too.U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials say searches of general aviation aircraft are a critical part of the fight against drugs and terror.On May 19, the agencys Office of Air and Marine denied Banks version of events. The encounter, which customs officials said lasted 20 minutes, was because of an error on the flight plan. The search was allowed, and the agency said in response to McClatchys questions that there were only three federal agents and that no weapons were ever drawn or used to intimidate. Banks is far from alone in accusing border officials of excessive shows of power.Many leisure and business pilots across the country say too many private citizens have been caught up in what they argue are warrantless searches that can be emotionally scarring and possibly illegal.Were opposed to drugs and drug runners and illegal uses of aircraft, but we do feel very strongly that when you do a police action like your plane comes to a stop on a runway and its surrounded by eight SUVs, police get out, guns drawn, body armor, dogs, that you need to have aStop in Keys leads to search, nothing foundBy FRANCO ORDONEZMcClatchy NewspapersHOMELAND SECURITYDo it for free beer, right?It would take a lot more than free Coors Light for most people to jump off a 50-foot cliff.

Keys high in boat accidentsFlorida Keys waters have finally surrendered the dubious title of the states most dangerous place to go boating, but only because MiamiDade County became more hazardous.However, Monroe County still stands second among Floridas 67 counties in terms of boating mayhem with 100 significant vessel accidents in 2013, according to the states annual Boating Accident Statistical Report, released Friday by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Monroe County also had 100 reported boating accidents in 2012. The report focuses on reported accidents involving death, injury or damages exceeding $2,000. In 2013, Miami-Dade County, for the first time in many years, exceeded the Keys as the most dangerous county with 104 accidents, a sizable jump of 28 percent from 2012.The Keys recorded five boating-related deaths in 2013, the same number as in 2012, and a state-high 56 injuries, according to the report.Only Pinellas County, with eight boating-related fatalities, had more deaths. Miami-Dade reported four 2013 boating deaths. Dive or snorkeling deaths are not classified as boating-related. Statewide, the number of reportable boating accidents increased to 736 in 2013, up from 704 the year before.There were 62 boating deaths, an increase of seven from 2012. However, the 62 is still the third-lowest total in the past decade; there were 80 boating deaths in 2005.Nearly three-quarters of the boating deaths were attributed to drowning. Theres an easy fix. Wear a life jacket, said Lt. Seth Wagner, an FWC safety specialist.The most common cause of Monroe County boating accidents, in 20 investigations, was operator inexperience. Other common causes were failing to keep a lookout (13 accidents), operator inattention (12), carelessness (nine) and speeding (eight).In the Keys, hitting a fixed object or another boat accounted for 44 accidents.

Doyle: No chikungunya fear here in the Florida KeysDespite its close proximity, Florida Keys Mosquito Control District Director Michael Doyle says its unlikely that an ongoing Caribbean outbreak of mosquito-borne virus chikungunya would impact the Keys. A disease like this, you have to have all the ingredients in the right conditions to have an epidemic, he said.That includes lots of people outside most of the time; lots of infected people arriving and lots of adult mosquitoes flying around. Chikungunya has spread like wildfire in several small Caribbean nations, which are typically light on preventative mosquito control. Symptoms include fever and severe joint pain. Doyle said chikungunya is transmitted to humans by infected Aedes aegypti and Asian tiger mosquitoes, both of which have been largely eradicated in the Keys. The Aedes aegypti caused minor outbreaks of dengue fever, which has symptoms similar to chikungunya, in Old Town Key West in 2009. Every once in a while we find one, but theyre certainly not widespread, Doyle said of the Asian tiger. On a lot of these Caribbean islands, theyre rampant. We do a lot of preventative [mosquito control] here. We have higher risk because our temperatures are warm all the time and we have a lot of people coming in from all over the place, but its lower because of our mosquito control program and we dont have the Asian Tiger mosquito, he said. Doyle added that our normal mosquito program is better than the emergency response pretty much anywhere else in the Western Hemisphere. It includes door-to-door inspections and aerial spraying not done elsewhere.Were better able to handle it than anywhere, he said.Dengue fever hasnt presented itself in the Keys since 2010, but its common in the Caribbean. In the Caribbean, chikungunya has spread rapidly. In December there was one case in the Caribbean. By this week there were 55,000 cases, he said. On May 22, the Palm Beach Post reported a fourth confirmed case of chikungunya in a 66-year-old man there who recently traveled to the Caribbean. Other cases have been reported in Miami-Dade, Broward and Hills borough counties.Mosquito-borne disease spreads in CaribbeanBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com KeysInfoNet.com Keynoter 2A Wednesday, May 28, 2014 PREDICTED TEMPERATURESDAY HIGH LOW WED.8978 THURS.8978 FRI.8979 SAT.8978 Forecast: Expect partly cloudy skies with a chance of thunderstorms.For the extended forecast visitKeysInfoNet.com/weather.The Monroe County Health Department tests Keys beaches every two weeks for the presence of enteric bacteria.

Under a pilot program announced Thursday by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the government would spend $500,000 a year to pay landowners to preserve about 26,000 acres for about 10 years. Kevin Godsea of the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge tells says some states have tried similar programs, but this is the first attempted by the federal government. State and federal officials have been holding closeddoor meetings for months about panther conservation efforts. They say that under the pilot program, landowners would have to follow certain land-management practices and allow annual federal inspections. Florida panthers once roamed the Southeast, but now theyre confined to the states southern tip.

As northbound visitors left Monday, a series of relatively minor accidents caused slowdowns between Marathon and Islamorada.In contrast to previous holiday weekends, only eight people were charged with operating a vehicle while under the influence and four of them were boaters.The Sandbar anchoring spot at Whale Harbor Channel in Islamorada drew hundreds of boats, too many to count, said Officer Bobby Dube of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Three boat operators near the Sandbar were arrested for boating under the influence. One of them was stopped because the boat was overloaded, and another was traveling on plane through a no-motor zone, Dube said.Crowds at the Sandbar were manageable, Dube said, probably because [the FWC] and our law-enforcement partners had a significant presence out there.Around 7 p.m. Sunday, a brawl in Sandbar waters sent David Deliere, 30, of Key Largo to Mariners Hospital with facial injuries. Deliere told Sheriffs Office Deputy Michael Claudy that another boat near his boat started its engine, throwing a spray of water onto Delieres boat. An argument followed.Delieres wife was struck in the face, and the fight escalated to involve a number of people. Deliere was knocked unconscious while in the water. He was taken to shore, but suffered two black eyes, a broken nose, cuts and a broken bone in his face. Officers are seeking other people who took part in the melee.Brawl breaks out at the SandbarFrom Weekend, 1A Coors Light.Sardina and longtime best friend Kelsey Wonderlin, also a Marathon native, traveled to a Gainesville-area quarry on April 15 to shoot the winning stunt.Jumping was easier said than done, as evidenced by the YouTube video Sardina posted after her plunge into water.I knew the place because my friends had been there, but it was the first time I had ever been there, she said. I was afraid that if I stepped off wrong and didnt jump far enough, you could hit the rocks.She eventually worked up the nerve she first says do it for free beer, right? Then she shouts for free Coors Light beer as she gets a running start to jump.A few weeks later, Coors Light obtained Wonderlins contact information from Sardina under the pretense it would be to verify her age and contest entry.Really what happened when they called me three or four weeks ago, they asked me about her interests and ideas for how to surprise her, Wonderlin said. She and I go kayaking a lot, so that was the reason we chose that. So the pair took off on Sunday out of the Crane Point Hammock subdivision for a typical trip that turned out to be anything but that. They mounted GoPro cameras on the kayaks that Wonderlin told her belonged to visiting college friends that wanted to test them out. She did say, This thing is kind of right on me. I said its fine because we always said since high school that we wish we could have someone follow us around and capture those spontaneous moments. She just went with it, Wonderlin said. At some point during the trip, they noticed a dive flag and pair of scuba divers. I saw bubbles in the water. As we passed over the top, I saw them and was trying to move out of the way. They [surfaced and handed] me the paper [saying Id won] and all of a sudden there were 24 floating beers around me, Sardina said. The divers were contracted by Coors. Sardinas friends and family, including several from Gainesville, were waiting at the kayak launch when the pair returned.There were a bunch of people from town that came to visit me and it was a little party and they made it feel so eventful. I was so surprised and it was really fun to have a random event bring a bunch of old friends and family together, she said.Sardina said she would receive six cases of Coors Light every three months by mail for the next year. Shes a telecommunications and marketing major at UF and heading to Spain to study abroad for the summer. Im going to have cabinets full of beers, I guess, she joked. I kind of always like Coors, but I like it a lot better now.Divers emerge, suds in handFrom Beer, 1A Man shot in home invasionA Grassy Key man was shot in the leg during what the Monroe County Sheriffs Office says was an apparent home-invasion robbery early Tuesday morning.According to the Sheriffs Office, Deputy Tyler Blanton arrived at the house, at mile marker 58, at 1:30 a.m. and found 39-year-old Robert Moir outside.Moir was reportedly bleeding from a gunshot wound on his leg, and told police that three people had just left the scene northbound driving a gold-colored sedan. The Sheriffs Office said Moir explained he heard a knock on his door about 1:15 a.m., answered it and had three men wearing bandanas over their faces burst in yelling at him to get on the ground. Moir told police he struggled with one of the intruders, who was armed with a handgun, when the gun went off, injuring his leg. He told Blanton he then got up, ran out the front door yelling for help and heard two more gunshots. Police say a bullet hole was found in a storage trailer in a neighbors yard. Moirs roommate, Serguei Koudriavtsev, was at the house when it happened and told police he was sleeping when he heard noise from the struggle. Koudriavtsev told police he reached for his cell phone to call for help, but one of the suspects came into his room and took his phone from him, warning him, Dont wake up or Ill kill you. Police say Moir was treated by paramedics but refused to go to the hospital.Detective Bobby Burkett, whos leading the investigation, said the suspects appear to have taken only medications prescribed to Moir.Cops say men took victims prescribed drugsGRASSY KEYA dog park in Jacksonville, a fountain in Palm Beach and money to help people get to the planned 1,000-foot-tall SkyRise Miami were among $121 million in budget projects that Florida TaxWatch says Gov. Rick Scott needs to strike with his line-item veto.In releasing its annual list of budget turkeys Friday, TaxWatch officials urged Scott to veto 107 projects from a 431-page, $77.1 billion fiscal plan that lawmakers approved early this month.None of the 107 so-called turkey projects are from Monroe County.The TaxWatch list includes one project, construction of a performing arts center at Pasco-Hernando State College worth $10 million, from House Speaker Will Weatherfords district.Another 10 projects, at a combined cost of nearly $6 million, are recommended to be slashed from the counties fully or partially included in the Panhandle district of Senate President Don Gaetz. Gaetz, a Niceville Republican, offered a sharp rebuke to the list.Florida TaxWatch has once again shown, Gaetz said in a release, that it is possible to be absent all year long from any engagement in the budget process, do no research into the merits of any appropriation, utter not one word of testimony on any proposal or alternative and still convince well-meaning people to donate hundreds of thousands of dollars to keep a well-paid staff employed to absolutely no positive effect other than to get mentioned in one news cycle.Scott has until June 4 to act on the budget, which will take effect July 1.Kurt Wenner, TaxWatchs vice president for tax research, said the projects on the list arent being questioned on their merits, but rather for failing to go through the normal budget process.The business-backed organization uses two main criteria to select turkeys: First, whether the project was inserted into the budget during the final negotiations between the House and the Senate; and second, whether the spending was requested by a state agency. Thats why, Wenner said, a $12 million crane at Port Tampa Bay is on the list, but none of the $171.9 million allocated for projects related to the Everglades and the Indian River Lagoon got targeted. The Everglades and Indian River Lagoon projects are backed by Senate Appropriations Chairman and past TaxWatch critic Joe Negron (R-Stuart).Watchdog group says 107 projects merely turkeysSTATE LEGISLATUREBy JIM TURNERNews Service of FloridaMOSQUITO CONTROLTaxWatch: Scott should veto $121 million This is an Aedes aegypti mosquito, which carries dengue fever and chikungunya.

Its important to pay close attention to everything thats going on around you. Open motorboats were involved in 51 local accidents, with personal watercraft accounting for 31. Monroe County accounted for 22 percent of the states 137 PWC accidents. Miami-Dade County recorded a state-high $1.66 million in boat damages from its 104 accidents.

reasonable suspicion that illegal activity has occurred or is about to occur, said Ken Mead, general counsel for the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association. It can also be a financial hardship. Professional pilot Dean Holiday lost about $1,600 a month in income when he stopped flying one of his best clients after more than a halfdozen officers, guns pulled, stopped them in Marana, Ariz. He didnt want to repeat the experience, thinking his client was likely involved in shady dealings even though nothing was found on the plane. Arturo Caballero has been stopped by agents twice after flying with his wife, son and pet chihuahua. On one family trip home to Bay City, Texas, Caballero was separated from his wife and son, who at the time was a student at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., for questioning while agents searched the plane.Seems to me theyre just throwing a big, huge net into the sky in hopes of catching something, Caballero said. What? They dont know. But something will come up.The pilots association, which represents more than 350,000 pilots and plane owners, says it has collected more than 50 cases in which members despite never crossing a U.S. border were searched by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents or local law enforcement without probable cause or reasonable suspicion of illegal activity.Feds take a lookThe association met last month with Border Patrol officials in Washington to discuss pilots concerns. U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske assured them the agency would conduct a comprehensive review of the searches, the association said. None of the flights in which planes were searched crossed any borders, Mead said. He said that much like drivers on the nations highways, pilots should not have to worry about having guntoting agents tapping on their plane windows asking to search their plane.The complaints that border agents are conducting egregious and intimidating searches of U.S. citizen pilots and plane owners come at a time when the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency is under increased scrutiny. Democratic Rep. Beto ORourke of Texas and Republican Rep. Steve Pearce of New Mexico introduced legislation in March that would impose more levels of oversight and accountability on U.S. Customs and Border Protection.Responsibility for detecting and identifying potential air threats of domestically flown general aviation aircraft falls under the U.S. Customs and Border Protections Air and Marine Operations Center. General aviation aircraft is a popular means of transporting drugs across the country. Customs and border agents have seized 1,600 pounds of marijuana and 72 pounds of cocaine over the past two years, according to an agency report. The attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, have heightened awareness of how planes can be used as weapons. On Feb. 18, 2010, the pilot of a small plane intentionally crashed into the Internal Revenue Service office in Austin, Texas, killing the pilot, an IRS employee and injuring 13 others. On Jan. 5, 2002, the pilot of a Cessna 172 intentionally flew into a Tampa building, killing himself.Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.), has sought more information from border protection officials about the encounters with general aviation aircraft.In response to the senators concerns, Kerlikowske wrote last month that any action taken is predicated on the totality of the circumstances amounting to reasonable suspicion or probable cause. He pointed out that federal law allows agents to inspect a pilots operating license and related documents without any level of suspicion.That is not to say the CBP exercises these authorities unrestrained or without considerations for the rights of citizens, he wrote in a response letter.Cases limitedKerlikowske said encounters are very limited. Of the hundreds of thousands of flights last year, federal agents tracked 428 general aviation aircraft, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Law enforcement approached 38 of those planes, of which 17 resulted in violations, including 12 seizures of drugs, weapons or money, Kerlikowske wrote.Agents monitor domestic flights for odd flight patterns and questionable practices, Kerlikowske wrote. They may make contact with a pilot based on an abnormal flight profile or a tip from other law enforcement of possible criminal activity. Those caught in the federal net say the experience can be harrowing.Tom Lewis and his wife, Bonnie, planned to fly to New Hampshire this week for their annual trip to see their grandchildren. Its an infamous trip in their family after what happened two years ago.Lewis, 66, and his wife fly out of Granbury, Texas, near Fort Worth. They usually stop twice along the way to use a bathroom. They typically have dinner and spend the night in Frankfort, Ky. Upon landing in Kentucky, Lewis planned to be looking behind him to see whether his plane is again being closely followed by a federal jet.Thats what happened two years ago. The jet, without any announcement, swooped in behind them on the ground. Three men and one woman dressed in border patrol uniforms and armed with M-16s quickly approached them. They asked for papers. They questioned the couple about their trip and looked around their plane.The experience was not as bad as other pilots experiences, Lewis said, but it was unsettling. I know they need to do that when theyre after the bad guys, he said. Its excessive to stop Grandma and Grandpa on their visit to see the grandkids. In the Florida Keys case, Banks said he also knows that the agents are simply doing their job. Hes glad theyre there to make it safer for him and others to fly their planes. But he said it was wrong for federal agents to use their firearms to assert authority, intimidate and coerce him into doing things he didnt want to do.Its not right, Banks said.The experience also might have wrecked his chances with the woman, who was also shaken up by the experience, Banks said. He said she now prefers to remain just friends. Shes like, Who am I flying with? Banks said. It was a first date. Thanks for screwing it up, guys.

Whether its a DUI, a car accident or the tragic death of a teen, we who live in Monroe County, with the highest drunk-driving rate in the state, glimpse the consequences of alcohol each day. Monroe Countys DUI Rate is 7.1 percent over the state rate. How do you change that statistic? Prohibition is not the answer, but we do need to educate our youth and reevaluate our culture of alcohol consumption.An underage person growing up in the Keys hears one thing but sees another. Our culture thrives on an economy of the Duval Crawl and drink til you drop. We rarely have events in the Keys that dont revolve around drinking. So what is the real message were sending our kids?Change the lifestyle of the Florida Keys? No, that isnt possible. But maybe we could change the popular attitude that its OK for underage kids to drink and, even worse, then drive. Teens that start drinking before age 15 are five times more likely to develop alcohol dependence or abuse later in life than those who begin drinking at or after the legal age of 21.Adults set the standard for responsible drinking. Its more than the parents responsibility to set the example; its ultimately the village, i.e., the surrounding community and cultural attitude that helps us decide whats acceptable.A community conversation about alcohol use and our youth is happening tonight at St. Peter Catholic Church on Big Pine Key. On Thursday, the program moves to Key West at the Harvey Government Center. Both start at 6 p.m. A panel discussion followed by an audience question-and-answer session will provide the experience of counselors who do prevention in the schools, law enforcement officials, medical and health professionals and, hopefully, students of all ages. If youre the parent of a teen or preteen, come share your challenges. Hear what the experts are saying. Bring your child. Know why you should not provide alcohol for your underage kids and their friends, even if its a party at your house. Learn about other ways to be the cool parent that wont put the kids at risk. If youre a teen, come speak your piece. Help find answers and alternatives for underage drinking and the negative consequences. Share your stories and experiences to help those who will follow you. Lets begin the conversation about underage drinking so realistic solutions can be found.

New insurance requirements are now in effect.Annual recertification of your floodproofing measures is required for flood insurance renewal. It requires specific documentation and plans related to the original installation. In many instances, the documentation you now possess isnt adequate. Absent this paperwork, the sticker shock at renewal time will likely be drastic. Without this new documentation, your new rate will be as if you had no floodproofing at all. The renewal bill for one floodproofed business, a tourist attraction, went from $3,000 to $16,000 because the newly required documentation wasnt ready. Another business, a corner grocery store, saw its bill jump from $2,400 to $11,000. Gathering the proper documentation may take three to six months, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency wants this information 90 days before the renewal date. If you havent already contacted your flood insurance agent, you should do so right away. Scott Fraser FEMA coordinator City of Key WestGetting bang for your buck?With water bordering three sides of the state and hundreds of inland lakes and rivers, flooding poses a serious and frequent threat to Floridians. Recent flooding from late April storms left parts of Escambia County in the Panhandle still flooded weeks later. Unfortunately, some residents there did not have flood insurance to cover their losses.Did you know that your homeowners or business insurance policy likely does not cover damage from a flood? Most policies do not, which is why you should consider purchasing a separate flood insurance policy as we enter the hurricane season on June 1. Start by reviewing your existing policy with your insurance agent to make sure it is adequate for your current needs. Flood coverage is offered as a standalone policy or as an endorsement onto a homeowners policy. It is primarily administered through the National Flood Insurance Program. There are private companies writing coverage, as well, some at less expensive rates. If you already have national flood insurance, ask your agent if changing to private insurance could result in losing a subsidized rate should you return to the federal program in the future. Also, consider the deductible and make sure it is right for you. A lower deductible raises the policys price and vice-versa. Recent changes in state law are encouraging private companies to write flood insurance, so it pays to shop around. Be aware that purchasing a flood insurance policy normally requires a 30-day waiting period before coverage becomes effective. So act now, before hurricanes threaten, when it will be too late. While speaking with your insurance agent, find out if your policy provides replacement cost coverage for losses, or actual cash value there is a distinct difference. Ask if you are receiving all of the windstorm mitigation credits you deserve. A new roof, storm shutters or impact-resistant glass can save you money on your policy.Now is also a good time to complete an inventory of your valuable possessions. This will help make filing an insurance claim easier and is also a useful tool to evaluate your coverage needs.The Florida Office of Insurance Regulation website (www.floir.com) has a hurricane-season resources link that contains valuable information for both the National Flood Insurance Program and private companies offering flood insurance. You and your familys personal safety are the most important objectives when facing a natural disaster. Make time to ensure your home and loved ones are protected and equipped to handle an emergency situation this hurricane season. Kevin McCarty Insurance commissioner TallahasseeBy HOWARD SIMON and BAYLOR JOHNSONhsimon@aclufl.orgAs dust settles on the 2014 Florida Legislative Session, the verdict seems to be: Well, it could have been worse.Compared to recent years, which saw a nearly unprecedented assault on the rights of state workers, poor people, women, doctors and voters, this session seemed downright tame. Whether humbled by court defeats striking down laws they enacted or by recognition that eroding Floridians Constitutional rights isnt good electionyear politics, this year the Legislature seems to have taken on a different tone.Thats not to say it was all good. Do no harm is not enough when there are urgent problems that need correction and opportunities to make things better. Unfortunately, the Legislature let many of those opportunities slip by.The most discussed missed opportunity a deliberately ignored opportunity, really was the refusal to even consider any strategy, including using federal funds to expand Medicaid, to provide affordable access to the basic health-care insurance that many of us take for granted.But there were many missed opportunities to directly address pressing civil liberties problems, including bills that would have reformed Floridas broken juvenile-justice system. For too long, leaders in our cities and schools have relied on criminal-justice solutions as a response to the behavioral problems of children. These solutions have funneled young people out of classrooms and into jail cells. But young people arent adults, and caging them for behavior problems as if they are denies them future opportunities and increases the likelihood theyll offend again. Sometimes looking at the criminal-justice system for a solution only makes a problem worse. During the legislative session, lawmakers had an opportunity to make it easier for all Floridians to register to vote and participate in our democracy. But a bill that would have brought Florida into the 21st Century by joining other states that allow online voter registration went nowhere because legislative leaders decided not to tackle reform. And speaking of bringing Florida into the 21st Century, a bill that would have provided basic civilrights protection in employment, education and housing by prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity or expression never got a hearing. That bill was sponsored by state Rep. Holly Raschein, Republican from Key Largo. Legislators should have passed the bill ensuring that all Florida drivers, including immigrant students who need to drive to college classes or adults who need to get to work to provide for their families, can obtain a drivers license. This year, like with so many other opportunities, the bill was not even considered. If legislators are returning to their districts trying to make the case that the Legislature has turned over a new leaf, theyll have to address the many missed opportunities to protect Floridians individual liberties while they were in Tallahassee.

These folks (above) kayak along a road on Grassy Key following the storm surge from Hurricane Wilma in October 2005. Water crashes down on the Island Tiki restaurant in Marathon following Wilma (left).Trees causing problemsAn effort to keep Florida Keys canals clear for boat traffic could mean some property owners could get a tree-trimming bill from Monroe County. Monroe County commissioners gave Growth Management staff approval to prepare an overgrownvegetation program that would allow intrusive tree limbs to be removed by contractors. Michael Maurer told commissioners, meeting May 21 in Key Largo, that the Big Pine Key canal behind his Cedar Lane home has become nearly impassable because of untrimmed trees. Its now nearly threequarters of the way across, and a boat lift on the other side creates another obstacle, Maurer said. Growth will continue and stop navigation on this canal. Boat collisions also could result, causing damage, injury or death from the lack of action, he added. Growth Management Director Christine Hurley said the same problematic situation can be found in dozens of canals scattered throughout the Keys. Property owners are legally required to keep trees on their property from blocking canals, but absentee owners can be difficult to reach. In some cases, biologists must be consulted. Were very frustrated because [unchecked tree growth] continues, Hurley said. Its a really big issue. Commissioners unanimously approved action to formulate a streamlined system that could get canals cleared more swiftly, with responsible owners facing cleaning bills, fines or property liens. The same program also could be used to control vegetation spreading onto a neighboring dry-lot property, commissioners said.Overgrowing to be addressed in new programCOUNTY COMMISSIONKey Largo needs cleanupKey Largos U.S. 1 corridor has become cluttered and disorderly, a local citizens group says, and Monroe County commissioners agree. Commissioners, meeting May 21 in Key Largo, urged county Code Compliance staff to do what it can to eliminate unpermitted signs and other visual blights. There are just too many signs, said Kay Thacker of the Island of Key Largo Federation of Homeowners Associations. Visitors say they cant find their way around.... Its time to clean [Key Largo] up and show her off.Growth Management Director Christine Hurley said the three code officers assigned to the unincorporated areas of the Upper Keys will be asked to pay attention to the highway frontage.However, safety issues come first, and identifying illegal signs requires timeconsuming research into county records, she said. Its a matter of what the board wants us to prioritize, Hurley said. Its all about resources and where you want us to put them. She said about half the business owners who put up an unallowed sign or banner will take it down once alerted that it is illegal. Ongoing highway and sewer construction, coupled with the economic slowdown, seemed to create a sense of leniency for banners and roadside signs, residents said. Hurley said the county can act quickly to get businesses to take out A-frame signs placed in the state or county right of way. Craig Cope, chief executive of the Key Largo Chamber of Commerce, said the business group supports the goal of cleaning up Key Largo but wants warnings before citations.He said the county should be ready to speed permitting for allowed signage. If you make [business owners] wait a year or two for a permit, they could be out of business, Cope said.Lots of other places need this kind of attention, said Commissioner Heather Carruthers.Signs on U.S. 1 to be the focus of new effortsCOUNTY COMMISSION By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgCode officers will be asked to pay attention to the highway frontage.

Carnival Corp., whose ships make regular port calls to Key West, will announce Thursday that it is expanding a clean-air program it announced last year, more than doubling the number of ships that will have exhaust cleaning systems installed at roughly double the price. That means the Doralbased cruise giant will place the scrubber technology it has been developing on at least 70 ships at a cost of up to $400 million. The dual filtration and scrubbing systems are expected to be installed on ships in six of the parent companys brands over the next three years. Were now far enough along in the research and development and we have a few of the initial scrubbers installed, said Tom Dow, Carnivals vice president of public affairs. Its given us enough confidence to say we want to roll this out even more broadly. In September, Carnival said it would spend more than $180 million on new technology that would clean fuel exhaust on 32 of its ships in order to meet air-pollution standards for waters off North American coasts going into effect in 2015.The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said last year it would allow Carnival to burn standard fuel at sea rather than a more expensive version with less sulfur while testing the equipment.Already, the parent company has announced that namesake brand Carnival Cruise Lines will bring ships back to Baltimore and Norfolk home ports it had previously said it would leave because of the high cost of cleaner fuel next year. The original announcement covered ships in the Carnival Cruise Lines, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises and Cunard brands; the latest news includes more ships from those brands as well as AIDA Cruises and Costa Cruises.International Maritime Organization requirements will limit large oceangoing ships to fuel that contains a maximum of 0.1 percent sulfur in zones that extend up to 200 miles from North American shores by 2015.Carnival said its technology will also satisfy global standards expected to limit fuel to 0.5 percent sulfur by 2020.This is a key step forward for Carnival Corporation and its 10 brands and most importantly for the environment, said Carnival Corp. CEO Arnold Donald. We believe Carnival Corp.s investment in this industryleading technology will set a new course in environmental protection and cleaner air for years to come.Dow said that as 2020 approaches, the company will likely outfit even more of its ships with the technology.We know that this will give us maximum flexibility, he said. Flexibility is an asset to our industry so that we can deploy ships where the market demand is the greatest.If you go to work for a newer business, theres a good chance youll be working for a woman: Women are starting companies at a torrid pace.Between 1997 and 2014, the number of women-owned businesses in the U.S. rose by 68 percent, twice the growth rate for men and nearly one and a-half times the rate for all companies, according to an American Express analysis of U.S. Census Bureau figures. They are starting an estimated 1,288 companies each day, up from 602 in 2011-12, American Express says.Women are becoming more aware of the opportunities for entrepreneurship in their lives. Its becoming more of an option for a career move than it ever has been in the past, says Susan Duffy, executive director of the Center for Womens Entrepreneurial Leadership at Babson College in Massachusetts.The number of new businesses started by women and men has increased in part because of the difficult job market since the recession. But the numbers of women business owners will keep rising as interest in entrepreneurship grows and younger women look to famous women as their role models, Duffy says.Some of those inspirations: Oprah Winfrey, designers Tory Burch and Diane Von Furstenberg and Weili Dai, cofounder of chip maker Marvell Technology. The current head of the Small Business Administration, Maria Contreras-Sweet, and her predecessor, Karen Mills, have both been business owners.More women are seeing themselves out there in their heroes in the business world. Theyre saying this is fabulous, I want to be like her, Duffy says. Their role models also include less prominent successful women in business. One of Summer Scarbroughs inspirations has been her mother, Elizabeth, a former executive with a medical devices company. The Scarbroughs own VinniBag, a seller of travel bags for wine and other bottles. I knew from a very young age that she was one of the only women in her company at that level, says Scarbrough, whose five-yearold company is based in Ventura, California. Being a woman business owner is no longer as novel or unusual as it was decades ago. I know a lot of women who are starting things, as well, Scarbrough says. The growing number of resources for women business owners, including the SBA-sponsored Womens Business Centers and womens business organizations are also encouraging women to start companies, according to Duffy.But women owners arent carbon copies of men. They tend to be more optimistic than their male counterparts, according to a survey released this week by Bank of America.Seventy percent of the women owners surveyed expect their revenue to rise over the next year, compared to 66 percent of men. Fifty-six percent of women plan to hire in the next year, compared to 50 percent of men.The survey also found women owners may face different challenges than men. Twenty-nine percent said they feel they have less access to money than men, and 32 percent said they have less access to new business opportunities. A woman entrepreneur is most likely to start a company that provides educational services, administrative or waste management services or is involved in the arts, entertainment or recreation, the AmEx survey said.

The point where the roiling ocean meets the fury of a hurricanes winds may hold the key to improving storm intensity forecasts but its nearly impossible for scientists to see. That may change this summer, thanks to postHurricane Sandy federal funding and a handful of winged drones that can spend hours spiraling in a hurricanes dark places, transmitting data that could help forecasters understand what makes some storms fizzle while others strengthen into monsters.Knowing that information while a storm is still far offshore could help emergency managers better plan for evacuations or storm surge risks.A hurricane is like an engine, and warm ocean water is its fuel. One secret, scientists say, is getting a better understanding of how the warm water transfers energy to tropical storms.We really need to get a better idea of whats going on down there before we even look to improve our intensity forecast, said Joe Cione, who studies how storms interact with the ocean at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations Hurricane Research Division in Miami.Hurricane hunter aircraft typically dont fly below 5,000 feet and cant descend below 1,500 feet, and realtime radar doesnt provide information about the thermodynamics at work inside a storms cloudy core. Canisters stuffed with electronics dropped from the planes transmit data about a storms pressure, temperature, winds and moisture as they fall to the ocean, but they remain airborne for only a few minutes. The kind of drone that Cione plans to launch from the hurricane hunters will spend hours descending slowly, cruising on the air currents spinning through a storm, possibly even orbiting a hurricanes eyewall. The amount of data the 3-foot, 7pound drone the Coyote, shaped like a thin missile with retractable wings could collect in the lowest parts of a hurricane would give researchers a movie compared to the snapshots sent back by the canisters, Cione said.The drones have a propeller and are controlled by someone in the hurricane hunter aircraft, but they are designed to float on air currents, not fly against strong winds. And the small drones are disposable once they hit the water, they wont be recovered.Hurricane forecasters have gotten good at predicting where a storm will hit, and the so-called cone of uncertainty that shows a storms likely path will shrink again this year. Improvements in predicting changes in the intensity of storms, though, have lagged.Several factors can alter a storms intensity, such as cold water from the oceans depths mixing with warm water at the surface, wind shear, the cyclical rebuilding of the wall of clouds that ring a hurricanes eye or a change in the energy a storm is pulling from the ocean. That last variable is what Cione calls a data void region, and its where the drones will aim.Theres a reason you dont have hurricanes over land they need the water, they need that evaporation and condensation, which is the source of their energy. So, how does that happen? Cione said. If we cant sample this region very well, very accurately, all the time, we could have the potential to miss how much energy is coming out of the ocean by a third or a half.Peak of seasonCione plans to test five or six drones in the peak of hurricane season, and possibly next year, to see how well they communicate data in real time. The $1.25 million project is among a slew of other NOAA hurricane research funded by last years Sandy supplemental bill that authorized $60 billion for disaster relief agencies. The potential for the data collected by the drones is priceless, Cione said. A lot of people talk about first responders, and I have the utmost respect for that, but were sort of like prefirst-responders, Cione said. Imagine these type of things out there 12 hours before landfall, and its a category higher than we think. Maybe thats the difference between evacuating people and not evacuating people. Its the kind of information forecasters would have liked to have had when Hurricane Charley suddenly strengthened to Category 4 as it sped into southwest Florida in 2004. Forecasters knew where it was going, and they warned coastal residents to prepare for a possibly major hurricane. But they couldnt see that it would intensify into a monster even as it approached land forecasters still cant explain whats behind that rapid intensification process.Charley cut a swath of destruction across Florida, killing nine people in the state.At the 11th hour, having the intensity information is good, yes. It helps me to tell people, Stay where you are, dont go outside because youre now putting yourself at far greater risk of injury from flying debris, said Charlotte County Emergency Management Director Wayne Sallade, who is still chief almost a decade after Charleys landfall.However, it would be even more helpful to know more about whether a hurricane might continue strengthening when its 36 hours or more from landfall, Sallade said. That would help determine the risk of storm surge the dangerous water rise created by tropical storms.

Story, 3B Conchs handle Keys GateWith both its running and passing games clicking, the Key West High football team defeated Keys Gate, 28-24, in the spring game Friday in Homestead. Quarterback Andrew Freeman and running backs Mehki Sargent, Dorian Cannon and Jeffery Anilus scored touchdowns for the Conchs, and Sam Graveline kicked four extra points.Keys Gate took a 6-0 lead on a long drive on its first possession and led 12-7 at the half. Key West had only two possessions in the first half.In the second half, a holding penalty nullified a 70yard TD run by Freeman, but the Conchs still scored three unanswered touchdowns for a 28-12 lead.We moved the ball at will, coach Johnny Hughes said.Playing against Conch second-teamers, Keys Gate scored on a 99-yard drive to cut the lead to 28-18, then scored again on a hail-Mary pass on the last play of the game.I was happy with our effort, said Hughes, whose team will play host Keys Gate in the season opener. The passing game looked sharp and all the runners had good games. And both of out lines were outstanding. Keys Gate had a lineman who weighed 320 pounds.The defense was led by linebacker Anthony Henriquez, who recently joined the team after playing second base for the Conch baseball squad. Henriquez had an interception.Were right where we want to be, said Hughes, who is eager to erase the memory of last seasons 1-9 record.The Conchs, who have moved to the independent Gold Coast Football Conference, will have four non-league games, including contests against 2012 state champion University and longtime rival Belen Jesuit.Four players score touchdowns in 28-24 victory in HomesteadKEY WEST FOOTBALLBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter Contributor Program aims to keep kids activeMarathon resident and business owner Daashia Cochran is passionate about exercise and overall wellness, especially when in comes to young people. She and partner Karen Thomas own Phoenix Rising, a health and wellness center whose mission is to offer clients a place to exercise your mind, body and spirit. But Cochran, who moonlights as a youth recreational basketball coach, wanted to do something to ensure all local youths have the opportunity to be active and participate in various sports.So she and Thomas created the Rising Phoenix Program, which will essentially put money aside through fundraising to donate as needed for league registration fees, sports equipment and the like.The goal is to make it possible for young athletes, ages 7 to 17, to participate in athletic activities. This is open to whatever our community needs, Cochran said.The opening venture will be the Sock It To Me kickball tournament on July 12 at the Marathon Community Park, so named because participants will be required to wear socks on their hands during defense.Cochran said the idea behind wearing socks was to make it a colorful and funfilled day. She said shes already been fielding questions about what types of socks are allowed. Socks are socks, she said, noting the only requirement is that each player provides his or own pair. Base stealing is allowed and encouraged. Its going to look like crazy town out there, Cochran said. Cochran said she and Thomas plan to be as transparent as possible with the program account, going as far as making the fund visible on their www.phoenix rising2013.com website. The monies that are put into the fund will be visible to the public on the website and also where we write the checks to, she said. When the first application goes out, youll see [where it went and] itll be able to be viewed.As for the youngsters applying, Cochran said it wont be as simple as asking for help and waiting to hear back.Its going to be through an application process. The young athlete would explain what it means to them, how it would affect them positively and do some community service before they get the award, she said. Kickball is the first tournament of what Cochran hopes is many to benefit the Phoenix Rising Program. The next one is already in the works, she said. Ive been asked for a dodgeball tournament. I am going to have to give it to them, Cochran said. Team registration is $225 or single adult players can register for $25 for a draft Cochran will conduct to fill out rosters. Kids ages 7 to 15 can register for $10.

No, you dont because the wind has finally laid down.Its a good thing because there are plenty of dolphin to be had. Slammers, gaffers and tons of schoolies are pouring through anywhere from the reef edge out to 30 miles.There are some blackfin tuna mixed in. And if youre lucky enough to find a floater, you may also get a wahoo.Mutton snapper fishing on the wrecks and rough bottom patches is really coming on strong. Most fish are in the 12to 16-pound class, with a few even bigger. The wrecks are still holding amberjack, which always provide a great fight and are excellent on the smoker.Theres been a flurry of African pompano this past week in the Middle Keys. I know of at least three taken in the Marathon and Big Pine Key areas. As for yellowtail, its been hit or miss on the reef. I suggest you start deep and look for bigger fish and then work your way up shallow until you find a school that is cooperative.The bite for grouper remains good, with plenty of blacks on the reef and reds on the shallower patches. The bridges are jampacked with tarpon anglers; the bite is excellent and there are plenty of fish to go around. If you are visiting this week, I highly recommend you get in on this world-class fishery via the services of one of the many professional charter boat captains in the Keys.The weeks bestSimon Gervais from Albuquerque caught five tarpon one night and three the next using live bait and lost two using his fly rod. He was fishing at the Channel 2 bridge with Capt. Chuck Brodzki.Capt. Ariel Medero of Big Game Sportfishing at The Hammocks in Marathon says the dolphin are here and theyre big. Look for weed lines, frigate birds and floating debris and ballyhoo is the best bait. One of his junior anglers, Matthew, caught a beautiful 25-pound bull. Inshore, black grouper, nicesize mangroves and highquality muttons are plentiful on the reefs and wrecks. And as far as tarpon fishing goes, he reports the hot bite is at Bahia Honda Bridge. Tarpon continues to be the primary fishing for the SeaSquared crews. Our season record was recorded by the Deford group of four anglers from Maryland, who landed all five of the tarpon they hooked. We fish at Bahia Honda using live crabs. Our shark fishing adventures are increasing in numbers as we get into the summer season, with loads of lemon sharks providing entertainment. And our trips to the reef produced large muttons, some mangroves and a whopping 30-pound African pompano. Also, Capt. Wayne Burri got a couple of offshore trips out for our customers, with nice-size dolphin to show for their efforts. Capt. Moe Mottice, of Moes Custom Charters in Key West, found big dolphin up to 40 pounds along with wahoo and nice blackfins. Key West Harbor has been producing tarpon with snappers and sharks mixed in.

Bourbon, by definition (at least in the U.S.), is distilled from a grain mixture that must be at least 51 percent corn. And corn is naturally sweet. So of course bourbon makes a wonderful base for a sweet-and-tangy barbecue sauce. It lends deep richness and combines wonderfully with so many of the sweet and bold flavors we associate with a great barbecue sauce. So that was my inspiration for this recipe to create an amazing bourbon-based barbecue sauce. But as I researched recipes, I was disappointed to find that so few bourbon barbecue sauces play up the bourbon. Most add just a quarter of a cup, or perhaps half a cup at most. I wanted more bourbon flavor, so I went with 1 cup.For sweetness, I used equal parts maple syrup and brown sugar, both of which have the same rich caramel notes for which bourbon is known. Add some soy sauce for saltiness, some cider vinegar for acid and a bit of Franks Red Hot sauce for bite, and were off to a great sauce. This sauce would be delicious on any grilled meat, particularly chicken or ribs. But I decided to slather it on shrimp. The briny notes of the shrimp just bring out the delicious sweetness of the sauce.What you need:2.5 cups water.Kosher salt.12 ounces Israeli (large pearl) couscous.One medium English cucumber, diced.Half a small red onion, minced.Two cloves garlic, minced.Three tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro.One tablespoon olive oil.Juice of one lemon.Two pounds extrajumbo raw shrimp, peeled.Half a cup maple-bourbon barbecue sauce (see recipe below).Four ounces crumbled feta cheese.In a medium saucepan over medium-high, bring the water to a boil. Add the couscous and one teaspoon of salt, stir, then cover and reduce heat to simmer. Cook for eight to 10 minutes, or until the couscous is plumped and tender and all of the water is absorbed. When the couscous is done, transfer to a medium bowl. Set in the refrigerator to cool for about 15 minutes.Once the couscous has cooled, add the cucumber, onion, garlic and cilantro. Toss well, then drizzle with the olive oil and lemon juice. Toss, season with salt, if needed, then divide between six serving plates.Coat the grill grates with oil or cooking spray, then heat the grill to medium-high.Thread the shrimp onto bamboo skewers, about six to seven shrimp per skewer. Use a pastry brush to lightly baste the shrimp with half of the barbecue sauce. Grill the shrimp for 3 minutes per side, or until just pink and firm. Set skewers of shrimp over each serving of couscous. Sprinkle each serving with feta cheese. Start to finish: 30 minutes (15 minutes active). Servings: Six.
