Students IDs are breachedAs of July 1, the state Department of Education will no longer use Social Security numbers to identify students. But thats little relief to nearly 300 Monroe County students whose personal information was accidentally sent out through email last week. The Social Security numbers and other personally identifiable student information of 290 Key West High School sophomores was inadvertently released when the Monroe County School District disseminated the results of their writing portion of the students Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, Superintendent Mark Porter said. Porter said a teacher was distributing the FCAT results to students electronically after receiving them from the Department of Education. A spreadsheet containing the Social Security numbers of all Key West High students who took the 10th-grade writing FCAT was embedded in the files, he said. Why the teacher who sent the e-mails didnt know about the embedded spreadsheet obviously those who received them saw it wasnt immediately known. About 65 students received the e-mails with the scores and Social Security numbers, and the embedded spreadsheet contained the private information of 290 students. So those 65 students could see the personal information of all of those 290 students, Porter said. Porter said he is reaching out to the Department of Education for guidance, but its chief spokesman said theres nothing the department can do and that its protocols had nothing to do with the security breach.

Historic lens coming home?Vice Mayor Chris Bull wants the historic Fresnel lens once used at Sombrero Key Lighthouse six miles off Marathon brought home to the Middle Keys. The lens is owned by the U.S. Coast Guard and on loan to the Key West Art & Historical Society. Bull wants it as a lobby centerpiece at Marathons new city hall when its built.But it turns out the delicate, roughly 6-foot-tall lens cant just be loaded onto a truck and driven 50 miles up U.S. 1 from its display site at the Key West Lighthouse and Keepers Quarters Museum on Whitehead Street. Interim City Manager Mike Puto says it could cost anywhere from $30,000 to $50,000 to complete the job.Youre talking about a lot of research for what has to be done to bring this thing into the building, Puto said. That would include $9,250 for the city-hall design team of Key West architect William Horn, KeySombrero was first lighted back in 1858By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON This is the old Sombrero Key Lighthouse lens. The lighthouse was automated in 1960 and the lens removed from the lighthouse 23 years later.See Lens, 3APlanning board: No ROGO neededLiveaboard vessels dock ed at commercial marinas can cast off lines and move, unlike a Florida Keys house or apartment. For that reason, the Monroe County Planning Commission decided May 28, marina boat slips for liveaboards should not require a residential permit allocation under the countys rate-ofgrowth ordinance, better known as ROGO. Monroe Countys existing land-use code doesnt work the way its written for new marinas, said county planner Joe Haberman. Liveaboards are clearly contemplated in the code but theres no way of approving them, Haberman told planning commissioners. Regula tions detail all the things you need to do to create liveaboard slips, Haberman said, and something else says you cant do it.A key point is the requirement that now, a new liveaboard space needs a ROGO allocation. However, allocations can only be assigned to upland areas and not water over submerged land. ROGO limits the state decides how many permits are issued in the Keys each year are based on the time needed to evacuate the Keys before a hurricane.County planning staff generally endorsed a request for changes to ROGO rules requested by Longstock II, the company operating the Stock Island Marina Village.

Rick Scott on Monday signed the states $77.1 billion budget for 201415 and it includes $50 million for wastewater-treatment upgrades in the Keys. That means that of $200 million the state Legislature authorized for Keys sewers in 2009, half of that has made it south to Monroe County from Tallahassee. The first $50 million was released in 2012.Monroe County government and the Keys municipalities have an agreement in place for how the spend will be spent. In 2012, $30 million went to unincorporated Monroe County and $20 million went to the village of Islamorada.This time around, the city of Marathon and the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District will each receive $17 million. Islamorada will receive $7 million, Monroe County $5 million, Key West $3 million and Key Colony Beach $1 million.In Key Largo, possible uses for the sewer districts share include a grinder-pump system for $2.5 million, sludge handling system for $4.1 million at the sewer plant at mile marker 100, and a computerized vacuum pit monitoring system at $5.5 million.In Marathon, much of the money will be used to expand parts of the sewer system. A computerized monitoring system for parts of the sewer system is also likely.Scott included the $50 million in his budget recommendations to state legislators, but listed it as general revenue. That would essentially mean $50 million in cash for the Keys. However, the Legis lature approved the $50 million to be covered by state Ever glades Restoration bonding.According to the state Division of Bond Finance website, the bonds are payable from a portion of the documentary stamp tax revenues levied on the conveyance of real property, stocks, bonds, mortgages and other security agreements.Marathon and Key Largo get the lions shareWASTEWATER TREATMENTKeynoter StaffSee Information, 3ASee Liveaboards, 2A
repeatedly expressed concern that any rule change should apply only to sailboats or motorboats that navigate under their own power. It must not open the door to floating structures like motorless houseboats or create a floating residential community.Having places where people can get in and out of water in the Florida Keys is a good thing, Commissioner Eliza beth Lustberg said. But I would not want liveaboards to take over marinas and squeeze out all the other functions.Longstock attorney Barton Smith said the change would provide more space and services for traveling boaters and let businesses operate how a marina is supposed to operate.Haberman said allowing more marinas developed under strict regulations could have the beneficial result of bringing vessels now anchored offshore into dockages that offer parking, sewage and garbage collection.No new marinas are being permitted until the county finalizes its Marina Siting Plan, which outlines criteria where new waterfront marinas could be created without damaging the environment. The plan has been under development for more than eight years. Planning Commissioner Ron Miller said he was reluctant to change rules for liveaboard vessels until we get a handle on the numbers.... I want to know how many slips could be created.There is no way to know that now, planners said, but marina rules on parking, suitable areas and mandated facilities will limit new businesses.There are lots of limiting factors here, said Mayte Santamaria, assistant county director of Planning and Environmental Resources. Its not going to be a freefor-all for marinas. Board Chairman William Wiatt said three wording changes defining a liveaboard vessel and dropping the ROGO allocation recommended by staff were a step in the right direction. Planning commissioners voted unanimously to send the recommendations to the Monroe County Commission. Florida lawmakers changed the statewide law on vacation-rental homes in May but the action may not mean much in the Florida Keys.The Legislature last month approved Senate Bill 356, which loosens constraints placed on the states municipalities and counties in 2011, when legislators effectively banned any new laws prohibiting or regulating the use of private homes as short-term vacation rentals.Monroe County and Keys municipalities had enacted vacation-rental laws before 2011, so the local laws were grandfathered in. The 2011 law also specifically exempts places designated as an Area of Critical State Concern, which Monroe County has been for nearly four decades. That means state oversight on virtually everything having to do with land use. While the newly passed bill restores some regulatory authority to local governments to deal with issues like noise and garbage at vacation rentals, it also says communities with no pre-2011 bans may not prohibit vacation rentals or set minimumstay requirements. Vacation-rental rules vary throughout Monroe County but generally limit where homes may be rented out for short-term stays. Rentals must be at least seven days in some areas, and no less than 28 days in others. State Rep. Holly Raschein (R-Key Largo) reported to the Monroe County Commission in May that the 2014 legislation creates a Catch-22 situation for us. It gives us back the authority to regulate vacation rentals but if we do, we will have to abide by the bills prohibition against limiting rental stays and lose the grandfather status, she said. County consultants are a bit hard-pressed to exactly interpret the bill because the language is a bit obtuse, county legislative-affairs Director Lisa Tennyson said this week.To tweak our ordinance to strengthen regulations related to garbage [and] noise carries with it the potential that we could or would lose the regulatory ability we currently have.It is in the attorneys hands to assess this potentiality and determine how or if to proceed, Tennyson said. Marathon and Key Colony Beach are relatively liberal with allowing vacation rentals, while the unincorporated county and Islamorada are more restrictive.Where Monroe County decided to make it very difficult to have vacation rentals, the city of Marathon makes it very easy, city Planning Director George Garrett said.With about 500 vacation-rentals allowed in Marathon, he said, we dont see the need to tweak our ordinance. Islamorada charges homeowners $1,000 annually for its vacation-rental permit, with only 151 issued last year.Key West has licensed 1,042 units at 751 properties as approved vacation rentals.We have not had any licenses available for years, city Communica tions Director Alyson Crean said. Vacation rentals is not something that has been in the forefront of issues that needs to be addressed.

Circuit Court Judge David Audlin resigned effective May 9 just two years into his second six-year term, citing lack of privacy in his personal life. The applicants as of Tuesday were Monroe County Court Judge Wayne Miller, former Monroe Circuit Court Judge J. Jefferson Overby and Key West attorneys Albert Kelley and Patrick Flanagan. Miller, 61, received his law degree from Hamline University in St. Paul, Minn., and was an assistant Keys state attorney from 1981 until his initial election. Unlike circuit judges, county judges serve fouryear terms. They preside over misdemeanors, smallclaims cases and the like. Overby, 56, a Circuit Court judge from 1988 to 1995, is in private practice in Key West and serves as a special magistrate for the city of Key West. Following his judgeship he worked in the State Attorneys Office and served as a special magistrate for Monroe County Growth Management. He graduated from the University of Florida College of Law. Kelley, 52, is in private practice and specializes in litigation and contract, entertainment and intellectual-property law. He graduated from the Florida State University College of Law. Flanagan, 31, is an associate lawyer with the Smith Oropeza firm. Hes a graduate of the West Virginia University College of Law. Hes a former public defender. The 10-member Keys Judicial Nominating Com mis sion, comprising Monroe County attorneys appointed by the governor, vets the applicants, then sends its list of three to six recommendations to the governor.

Southwest Airlines ends its daily nonstop service to Key West International airport from Tampa, Orlando and New Orleans effective Saturday. It had started in December 2012. Southwest has never given specific reasons why its pulling out; its passenger numbers were strong. Starting Monday, Silver Airways is starting daily nonstop flights between Orlando and Key West. Two flights are to be offered daily and take about 80 minutes each. The airline plans to use 34-passenger Saab 340B Plus aircraft for the route. Monday, a daily afternoon flight is to depart Orlando International Airport for Key West International at 4:24 p.m. Utilizing a different Silver aircraft, a Key West-toOrlando departure is set for 5:35. Beginning June 12, the schedule also calls for departures from Key West to Orlando at 2:10 p.m. and flights back slated for 1:25. As well as inaugurating nonstop Orlando/Key West flights, Silver Airways is continuing nonstop service between Key West and Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers and Tampa. Silver Airways is an air carrier partner with both United and Jet Blue, which will provide an increase in convenience and access to other cities for our passengers, said Monroe County Director of Airports Peter Horton.

One-time fugitive indictedA former Georgia banker who faked his death to escape felony fraud charges and was last seen in Key West before his capture has been indicted in connection with the faked death. Aubrey Lee Price, 47, of Valdosta, Ga., was charged Friday by the U.S. Attorneys Office in Miami with communicating a false distress signal, resulting in a massive search by the U.S. Coast Guard. He faces up to six years in prison and the repayment of the search cost, beyond what he faces if convicted in the separate fraud cases. In June 2012, Price mailed a suicide letter to his family in which he claimed to have jumped off a ferry to his death somewhere off Naples. The vessel had departed from the Key West Ferry Terminal. Price had last been seen at the terminal and Key West International Airport on June 16 that year. The Coast Guard says the search for Price cost $117,000 based on $17,866 per hour to operate an HC130 Hercules airplane from Air Station Clearwater and $15,354 per hour to run an HC-144 Ocean Sentry plane from Air Station Miami. The search took in the area from Key West to Fort Meyers.On July 11, 2012, Price was federally indicted in Georgia for allegedly embezzling about $17 million from the nowfailed Montgomery Bank and Trust in Savannah, Ga. On Jan. 25, 2013, he was indicted in New York on charges of securities and wire fraud.This past December, Price was arrested in Brunswick, Ga., during a routine traffic stop.Former banker faked his death after Keys visitIN THE COURTS PRICEKeynoter StaffLawmakers limit vacation-rental lawsBut the Keys apparently are not affectedSTATE LEGISLATUREBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comCaptain rescues two diversTropical-fish collector Alec Getman says he knew something was wrong Friday afternoon when he and fellow diver Colin Haley noticed tools that were supposed to be on their boat on the bottom of the ocean. Getman, 19, and Haley, 26, were diving about three miles east of Sombrero Key Lighthouse when, unbeknownst to them, their boat, the Tropical Hunter took on water and capsized. It was kind of surreal, Getman said, noting the pair was diving at around 50 feet with subpar visibility. As we were coming up, you could see the silhouette but couldnt tell it was capsized until we got up closer. Lucky for Getman and Haley, local charter boat captain Kevin Johnsen was in the area noticed something was wrong. I was out with some clients and local friends. We were coming in and I saw a boat, Johnsen said. We approached and saw it was taking on water. Within two minutes, Johnsen said, the boat was underwater. They came up probably 10 to 15 minutes after the boat sank. Obviously, they were trying to figure out what happened. I could see their backpacks [on the boat], so I knew they were down below, he said. Johnsen said he told the divers to check their oxygen and, provided they had enough left, to salvage what they could from the boat.They got spear guns, dive equipment and all that, he said. Two tanks floated away that we picked up before they even showed up.Johnson, along with passengers Tim Green and Tom Zajac, helped Getman and Haley aboard their boat and eventually handed the pair off to authorities. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Sheriffs Office and U.S. Coast Guard all eventually responded.Getman said he was thankful to see Johnsen when he finally surfaced and saw what had happened. If he wasnt there we didnt see anyone else anywhere around us so it would have been a while, he said. Getman said the boat was retrieved later that day and could be back on the water in short order. FWC spokesman Bobby Dube said the Getman and Haley work for Tropical Warehouse, a licensed collection company.Boat capsizes, they dont know until surfacingBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMIDDLE KEYS Photo courtesy KEVIN JOHNSENThe capsized Tropical Hunter was salvaged.

West-based K2M Design and Marathon-based Solaria Design and Consulting Co. to incorporate the lens into the already-designed lobby.Solaria worked up an estimate for the city that includes 58 paid hours for designing in, installing and operating the historic lens. Solaria says the lens would require special labor requirements for maintenance; energy for climate control and lighting; specific lens testing and maintenance; and liability insurance.In addition, the city would apparently be required to hire a lampist to dismantle, ship and reassemble both the Sombrero lens and a separate but similar one to replace it in Key West. Its unclear where that lens would come from. The 156-foot-tall Sombrero lighthouse was built in 1857 and 1858 and first lighted on March 17, 1858, according to the Florida Keys Reef Lights Foundation. It was automated in 1960 and the lens, made in France, was removed in 1983.In a May 27 memo, Marathon Grants Coordinator Nancy Nuner said she contacted Arlyn Danielson, curator of the U.S. Coast Guard Historical Artifact Collection, about moving the lens to Marathon. Nuner said Danielson was supportive of our desire to have the Sombrero lens on display but that the city would be required to:Get approval from the Art and Historical Society to move it.Supply $1 million insurance coverage that would cost about $1,100.Pay the lampist to handle transporting each lens. Nuner wrote in the memo that the Floridabased Coast Guard lampist estimated a project cost of $33,000 to move both lenses. Thats assuming another lens is shipped in from the Miami-area.Marathon City Council man Mark Senmartin says repeated and unfounded complaints to the citys Code Compliance Department are costing taxpayers too much money.Code Compliance Administrator Stacy Charlton reported at the May 27 City Council meeting that 16 such cases eight repeat and eight unfounded were investigated in April alone. They comprised nearly 30 percent of 54 total cases. Charlton said it takes from seven to eight hours to investigate a case and Senmartin estimated, based on a typical code officers salary, that the city spends roughly $180 on each one. It adds up to $2,880 for the 16 cases. And that was just the month of April, he said. I didnt go back and pull all the previous months, but if you follow that math, it could be pretty steep by the end of the year. It could be a whole code persons salary just trying to figure these things out, Senmartin said. Senmartin said hes discussed possible solutions with City Attorney Lynn Dannheisser. My initial idea: Every complainant would get a free call. The first time you get warned and after that Im not sure how to do it. It could be a fine; maybe you have to pay part of that $180 it costs to do this, he said. Senmartin said he would also consider the idea of residents paying up front for a complaint they want investigated. If its baseless, you lose your money, or if its a real violation, you get your money back. Im looking for ways to cut the budget a little bit, cut the spending without affecting any services. If we can trim some fat that way, then lets do it, he said. The council directed Charlton to compile a real yearly figure of what it is costing us to investigate these complaints and report back at a future meeting. Lodgings expandAlso May 27, the council granted a pair of conditional-use permits and development agreements to Coconut Cay Resort owner Jim Rhyne to expand his motel and to Key West-based Spottswood Cos. to expand their Holiday Inn Express. According to city documents, Spottswood Cos. proposes to add a 27-room, twostory hotel building at the rear of the existing property, adjacent to Coral Lane on Key Colony Beach. It would include a pool, expanded parking, emergency access to Coral Lane and a lawn area for events such as weddings. The current hotel has 134 rooms on three floors. Rhyne had previously received permission from the city to redevelop a 2.29acre portion of his U.S. 1 and Aviation Boulevard resort from 40 to 62 units. His amended plans reduce the number of units to 57, or 54 if the managers apartment is retained. Wednesday, June 4, 2014 3A Keynoter KeysInfoNet.com Youve earned it.

We do not transmit student-level assessment results or any personally identifiable information via e-mail or other unsecured methods. Student files are available to districts only via secure means.He said hes not aware of this breach occurring in the past. Its never a good idea to send student-level information via e-mail. The security breach was discovered late Friday. Porter said he has reached out to the students and their families to minimize the damage, but how exactly he plans to do that isnt known. He was meeting Tuesday with senior management. No matter, one just cant put the toothpaste back in the tube around 65 students have the Social Security numbers of 290 of their classmates. Porter said the underlying problem is the Department of Education using Social Security numbers as student identifiers. But come July 1, that will no longer be an issue. Follick said his department has used Social Security numbers to ID students for many years.But in the two-month legislative session that ended May 3, Senate Bill 188 changed that by calling for the creation of a Florida student identification number, Follick said. The department has already begun that work with pilot school districts to establish a process for the numbers.New student IDs on the horizonFrom Information, 1A What to do now?A dishonest person who has your Social Security number can use it to get other personal information about you.

Lampist would be requiredFrom Lens, 1AKeys land values increaseMonroe County properties are worth a touch more than $20 billion combined, according to 2014 estimated taxable values released May 28 by Property Appraiser Scott Russell. Assuming the $20,000,231,180 figure less $99.33 million in new construction doesnt change, it would mean an $834,946,756 increase from 2013 values as of October. That equals just more than 4.17 percent. Those figures could change by a minimal amount, as the Property Appraisers Office is still working to finalize 2013 valuations that follow the Value Adjustment Board process in which homeowners can appeal their assessment.The $19.17 billion 2013 value equaled a 2.55 percent increase from 2012, as the Keys real estate market continues to slowly rebound from a crippling recession that led to the housing bust around 2008. Russell said in an e-mail that he attributes the increase in overall value in 2014 to increases in single-family [home] sales and that he doesnt believe the value will change much when the tax roll is finalized. Following are the estimated 2014 taxable values, less new construction, for the five Keys municipalities:Key West, $5.57 billion, up $285 million from 2013 ($5.29 billion).Islamorada, $2.64 billion, up $96.9 million from 2013 ($2.55 billion).Marathon, $1.83 billion, up $50.8 million from 2013 ($1.78 billion).Key Colony Beach, $557.5 million, up $36.3 million from 2013 ($521.3 million).Layton, $48.38 million; up $3.18 million from 2013 ($45.2 million). Realtor Brian Schmitt said that average home sale prices in the Keys last year were up about 6 percent. The tax rolls are a year behind so thats certainly consistent with what we experienced in the marketplace, he said. Schmitt added that with average sales prices this year up about 12 percent, the Keys are once again becoming a sellers market as available inventory dips. Rise in sales of singe-family homes is reasonBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comREAL ESTATEManaged boat zones are extendedNew managed anchoring zones in Florida Keys waters apparently will remain in place for at least another three years. A 2009 state law creating a pilot program that allows the managed zones was scheduled to expire July 1 unless extended by the Florida Legislature. Legislators in May approved continuing the program through June 2017 as part of a law covering several Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission rule changes. Gov. Rick Scott had not signed the FWC bill as of Tuesday, said FWC spokesman Katie Purcell. If he does not veto the bill, the program will be extended, she noted. Monroe County was one of five Florida coastal communities permitted to create new areas where local government could approve regulations for anchored boats in designated areas.The program largely seeks to prevent unsafe vessels from sinking and becoming derelicts that threaten navigation and the marine environment.The managed anchoring zones are somewhat different from regulated mooring fields, where boaters pay to secure their vessels to mooring buoys. In the managed fields, there are no moorings.In October 2012, Monroe County commissioners gave final approval to the local managed anchoring zones, and to narrow no-anchoring buffer zones around existing mooring fields in Marathons Boot Key Harbor, and in Lower Keys waters of Boca Chica Basin, Key West Harbor and Cow Key Channel.Enforcement of rules banning boats in pre-derelict condition and requiring boaters to use sewage pumpouts began in March 2013 in Key West and in August in Marathon. Although the effectiveness of the [Keys] ordinance is difficult to evaluate at this point, the county reports some changes already occurring, says an FWC report sent to legislators in late December. The most obvious change has been vessels which are no longer anchored in the no-anchoring zones, the report says. Other anticipated changes will require more time to become evident.Keys are part of pilot state marine programON THE WATER Photo by KEVIN WADLOWA state program allowing managed anchoring zones in the Florida Keys seeks to prevent the sinking of boats that become derelict, like this one lying on the bottom of Florida Bay off Upper Matecumbe Key.

To be clear, there was no mistreatment by postal workers, only comments from angry customers.Let me begin by thanking him for his service to our country in Vietnam, and say that I have never met him personally.As a resident of KCB, I must go to this post office to receive any mail, as there is no home delivery here. I have been in the extremely frustrating position of being stuck behind a guy at the single clerk counter here who was mailing commercial quantities of items and effectively shutting down the place for what seems like hours. Im talking about two or three large totes filled with small items one by one. This is not once or occasionally, but on a regular and frequent basis. I can only guess that this would be the letter writer, and Id like to thank the ladies who finally had enough and said so. The points he is missing are:Residents of KCB have no alternative to receive their mail besides this post office. The service window is only available between 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 to 4 p.m. weekdays.Common courtesy and common sense would dictate that if you are conducting business with massive mailings on a regular basis that you should use a facility with more than one window to allow for others to have a chance to access the post office. It surprises me that the postmaster doesnt already have a policy in place to address this type of situation, such as a limit of 10 transactions at a time, then go to the back of the line when there is only one clerk. Another option would be to use click-and-ship at your home or business, then have your load picked up or drop it off en masse.The letter writers address was published as Grassy Key, which should read as Marathon. Marathon has a fine post office with multiple clerks ready to take your business. Use it. Marc Anderson Key Colony BeachVeterans deserve betterIm sickened by the neglect, indifference and callousness rendered unto veterans at 26 specified facilities. I know that at the Miami Veterans Administration hospital during a threeyear period, colonoscopy scopes and tubing were not sterilized after being used to examine a patient. These contaminated instruments were thrust into another unsuspecting patient, cloaked with the fecal matter from a prior examination.How does something like that happen? Is that what we have to look forward to, from government-run health care?Because of these unsanitary conditions, some veterans were infected with the AIDS and Hepatitis C virus. The VA was sued because of this defiled medical practice. The plaintiffs were awarded a multimillion-dollar award from a judge because of the harm they suffered because of this neglect.U.S. Navy surgeons saved my life. Doctors from the Veterans Administration put me back together. Its exceedingly difficult for me to process why health care for veterans has been allowed to deteriorate. According to White House memos and whistleblowers, my brothers and sisters are being killed by a rogue and inhumane health-care system.We are quick to go to war and slow to treat those wounded and disabled in combat. A competent leader is cognizant that weve been involved in extended conflicts in the Middle East. Casualties from these wars need urgent and long-term care. Battlefield injuries, in all their grotesque expressions, are costly to treat. Qualitatively attending to our veteran population is going to require an immediate uptick in competent doctors, nurse practitioners and clinicians. New hospitals, along with increasing the square footage of those already online, are long overdue. During my 40 years of treatment by the Miami VA, I am not aware of any renovations that increased clinical accommodations for veterans.Are we a compassionate and humane society? Do we value the sacrifices made by members of our armed forces? Or does the lip service proffered by our elected politicians really represent our banality and shallowness?It distresses me to witness the president and his aides refer to the VA scandal as though they were some innocent bystanders who first heard about this systemic neglect of veterans on the 6 oclock news. As other areas of the presidency are unraveling, it appears that their falsehoods, incompetence and ineffectiveness are legion. Gross mismanagement is not exclusive to the VA. I pray that the government health-care system, being forced upon my countrymen, is gentler and more effective. John Donnelly Key LargoClimate-change deniers are all wet or will beGov. Rick Scott does not believe in climate change or at least mankinds role in it. That remains true, despite Scotts refusal to reiterate as much on the record.His dodgy nonresponses to simple questions, rather unfortunately, is reminiscent of his inability, as a candidate for governor in 2010, to explain whether as a CEO he had any idea that his healthcare company was bilking the Medicaid and military TRICARE system.Scott is walking, or perhaps shambling, along a Marco Rubio-esque tightrope. Like Rubio, he hollers Im not a scientist when asked whether he believes that mans activities, from fracking to drilling the hell out of the Earth in search of fossil fuels, might be negatively affecting the planet and both the climate and the weather.Like Rubio, Scott lives under the constant shadow and whip of the tea party, which gave him its support in 2010. Thats based on Scotts equally firm denialism when it came to whether emergency-room visitors could use some health coverage. Then again, the tea party can also take away, based on Scotts temporary apostasy on accepting the Medicaid expansion or his belated pandering to Florida teachers.He has the unenviable task of running for reelection as a very unpopular incumbent against a popular former Republican governor who, by the way, believes in the science of climate change. So vive la difference. But Scotts dodginess on climate change his refusal to proudly claim his denialism and concurrent refusal to accept that 97 percent of scientists might be on to something could have something to do with Floridas unique position of risk, as the climate really does continue to change. The recent federal National Climate Assessment, which issued a doomsday scenario forecast for the United States if recalcitrant governors and members of Congress dont wake up and smell the hurricanes, placed Miami, along with Tampa, at particular peril, and not in the far off future. And then theres the Keys, whose highest point is all of 18 feet above sea level (Windley Key).The coming high-intensity hurricanes despite the predictions for a calm 2014 hurricane season along with the extreme heat and rising sea levels are a direct and imminent threat to Florida.Rising sea levels already threaten Miami and Miami Beach with flooding, not in the future, but today. And the Florida Department of Transportation has already taken the national estimates seriously enough to project that over the next 35 years, flooding on the order of what drivers in Miami Beach experience after a typical heavy rain could be a drop in the proverbial bucket. The governor cant even bring himself to admit the problem. And theres the Legislature that would prefer to spend its time thinking up new places you can tote a firearm. Meanwhile the governor has a record, which includes gutting the states environmental programs and the Florida Department of Environmental Regulation in his budgets. Florida has a choice. The state can continue to embrace the fracking of the Everglades, runaway development and climate-change denialism, hoping that whoever occupies the governors office hires a decent disaster administrator. Or it can embrace a different future.Whatever a tea partier tells you, climate change is real. And its happening now. And it threatens South Florida more than anywhere else in the U.S. That is not a small thing. Its not benign.Im not a scientist either. But I tend to listen when 97 percent of them agree. Joy-Ann Reid is the managing editor of TheGrio.com, a political columnist for the Miami Herald and an onair contributor on MSNBC. This is reprinted from the Herald.Insurance companies that wanted increases are instead reducing rates, lets hope the trend continuesWhen it comes to Floridas property insurance rates, what a difference a little pressure from the states chief financial officer can make.In 2013, most of Floridas property insurers, as usual, filed for rate increases despite eight straight years without a hurricane and sharp reductions in insurers costs.And why not? The state Office of Insurance Regulation had approved more than 100 rate increase requests each year since 2009 many of them in double digits. As a result, Floridas average property insurance premium $1,933, based on 2011 figures became the highest in the nation and double the national average, according to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners. Then, late last year, Florida CFO Jeff Atwater, who oversees insurance regulation, directed Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty to compile a report detailing how much property insurers had saved in 2013 and why consumers had not benefited.After all, besides avoiding hurricane-damage payments since 2005, Florida insurers had saved hundreds of millions when the cost of reinsurance the policies they buy to back up their claims fell by 20 percent or more.The 10 largest Florida-based property insurance companies had made $283 million in net underwriting profits through the third quarter of 2013, the Sarasota Herald-Tribune reported. And most of the property insurers were looking for more. But after Atwater asked for the report, things began to change.McCarty reported in January that a half-dozen of the states 30 major property insurers have a recently approved or pending request for a rate cut between 2.4 percent and 9.2 percent, the Tampa Bay Times reported.Some companies that initially sought increases even have backtracked. Castle Key Insurance, a subsidiary of Allstate and one of Floridas largest property insurers, had filed for a 12.2 percent average statewide increase but announced in January that due to lower costs, it would no longer seek the rate hike. Castle Key was eventually approved for a decrease of 5 percent. The single-digit reductions so far are dwarfed by the increases Florida insurers reaped for several years. Still, the rate cuts that McCarty reported are a start and, thankfully, just a start, Atwater indicated in a recent statement.When Commissioner McCarty provided me his analysis of the property insurance market, he said that he expected lower reinsurance costs to be reflected in lower rates for consumers in future rate filings, Atwater said. I share the commissioners expectations.Theres no doubt that Florida homes and businesses face special risks, including the threat of hurricanes. But when nature spares Florida from the onslaught of hurricanes for an eight-year period and insurers benefit from reduced costs as a result property insurance rates should reflect that good fortune.

Feds: No rehabbing marine mammals for nowA week after the Monroe County Commission forgave 90 percent of the code fines racked up by a Key Largo marine-mammal rescue group, it was revealed that the federal government months ago prohibited that organization and others like it in the state from carrying out its primary mission. The National Marine Fisheries Service issued an order in November to mammal rescue groups from North Carolina to the Keys to stop rehabbing stranded dolphins and whales. The reason: An outbreak of a measles-like virus called morbillivirus that is killing mostly bottlenose dolphins all up and down the east coast, said Erin Fougeres, a NMFS marine mammal biologist.According to data from NMFS, a department of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, almost 1,300 Atlantic bottlenose dolphins have died, most testing positive for morbillivirus, from New York to Floridas Vero Beach since July. The virus affects marine mammals lungs, brains and immune systems. Until the 1990s, not much was known about it and how it was spread.There is still much to be learned, and rehabilitating an animal with morbillivirus is considered too experimental, which is why NMFS forbids it, at least until it is clear the recent outbreak has subsided.Since determining the reasons why dolphins and other marine mammals strand themselves often go unknown, federal biologists dont want to take the chance of releasing a whale or dolphin back into the wild that could be a morbillivirus carrier. Nor do they want to expose captive animals to the disease. Scientists are not sure how long a carrier typically spreads the virus. They also dont know how its spread, how it is transmitted and whether a marine mammal can become an asymptomatic carrier.They also dont want to expose captive marine mammals to the disease, NMFS Southeast Regional Admin istrator Roy E. Crabtree said in a Nov. 26 letter to rescue groups. While marine mammals cannot transmit the virus to humans, people can spread it to whales and dolphins. Thats why groups like the Dolphin Research Center on Grassy Key stopped taking part in stranding responses years ago. They did not want to inadvertently expose any of their captive mammals to morbillivirus, said Mary Stella, marketing and media director at the DRC. The DRC also asks any guests if they have been in contact with any sick or stranded marine mammals before they enter the mile marker 58.9 facility.That is a protection to our marine mammals, Stella said.While Fougeres calls the rehab prohibition temporary, she also did not have an estimated time for when it might be lifted.This means that a large volunteer effort to save five pilot whales out of a pod of 23 that stranded off Cudjoe Key in 2011 at Key Largos Marine Mammal Conservancy would be prohibited from responding if the stranding happened now.Only one of those whales survived. She is at SeaWorld Orlando.The MMCs bayside property at mile maker 102 has accumulated $580,000 in county fines because of numerous code violations through the years. The five-member County Commission voted May 21 to forgive 90 percent of the bill if MMC continues to use its property only for rehabilitating marine mammals. MMC representatives could not be reached for comment.If the MMC tries to sell the 3-acre tract or change its use, the entire fine payment will be due, the commission unanimously voted. The $58,000 is due by the end of July.Mayor Sylvia Murphy, who voted to give the MMC the break, said she did not know about the federal rehabilitation prohibition before she voted. But she said it would not have affected her decision.Were not in danger of losing out on anything, Murphy said Thursday, adding that no matter how long it lasts, the rehab prohibition is temporary. The entire fine is due and payable if they do anything different.By DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comENVIRONMENT Photo by ANDY NEWMANFive whales that stranded off the Lower Keys in May 2011 were taken to the Marine Mammal Conservancy for rehab.

Losing out on power costs?That precious, cooled air that leaks out of your home every summer is money leaking out of your checkbook. Electricity prices are expected to rise faster this year than they have since 2009, to a record average of 12.5 cents per kilowatthour, according to the Energy Department. And prices are highest in the summer, just when you need more power to run the air conditioner. But many residents are paying far more than they should to cool their homes because cold air is leaking out and hot, humid air is getting in. The air seeps through obvious places, like under doors, and not so obvious places, like cracks around plumbing that you cant see. We accept a much higher level of bad performance in our homes than we would in our cars. You shouldnt be uncomfortable. says Jennifer Amann, director of the buildings program at the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy. Homes dont have to perform badly. To see if your home is a bad performer, try a thorough home energy audit. They are offered through utilities and local contractors and are often subsidized by state energy efficiency programs. The audits can cost $100 to $400, but they can lower both summer cooling bills and winter heating bills by finding leaks and other sources of wasted energy. How much you save depends on how much repairs cost, the size of the leaks found, how big your home is, and your electricity price. Knowing whether you need a home energy audit and whether it will pay off is tricky. Amann says you should get one if you feel like you are paying too much for electricity (who doesnt!), and she suggests talking to friends and neighbors. Some utilities are making it easier to see how your usage compares with others nearby, either as part of your bill or with online tools. If you opt for an audit, Amann suggests using a contractor who participates in the Department of Energys Energy Star home performance program. A thorough audit more than just a walkthrough of your home will include something called a blower door test. A device is attached to your front door that sucks air out of your home, allowing leaks to be detected. It also establishes a baseline to test the home again after leaks are fixed to determine how effective the repairs were. Some repairs will be clearly cost-effective, like adding insulation or closing up cracks with caulk or weather-stripping. Others might not be. Windows and central cooling and heating systems are so expensive that the savings might not justify replacing them if they are still working well. If a new central air-conditioning system costs $5,000, including installation, and it cuts power consumption by 20 percent, it would take 18 years for it to pay off for a typical power customer. If it is time to replace the system anyway, buying the most efficient one available usually pays off more quickly. The auditors will have tips for reducing energy use in other ways, like unplugging devices that arent being used or replacing inefficient appliances and lighting. Theyll recommend changes in behavior, too, such as not running appliances like dishwashers that add heat and humidity to a home during the hot part of the day. These are simple, common sense things but sometimes people just dont think about it, Amann says.

Recipe, 2B Cousteau splashes downSuspenseful orchestra music plays in the background as the disc-shaped underwater vehicle propels through a deep, offshore marine world that few people had ever seen before. The narrator of the 1964 Academy Award-winning documentary World Without Sun states in an ominous voice: The diving saucer returns from a world where the sun never shines. The saucer is the spearhead of an historic adventure, conceived not only to explore, but to inhabit the seas. The French expedition is led by JacquesYves Cousteau. Inhabiting the seas never happened. But Cousteaus pioneering Continental Shelf Station Two a month-long saturation mission in a habitat 33 feet deep off the coast of Sudan in the Red Sea in 1963 proved that humans could live and work under the sea. Its success also made the worlds oceans more exciting and inviting, heralding in a new era of exploration and research. Now, to honor the 50th anniversary of the so-called Conshelf Two and continue Cousteaus later-in-life quest for ocean protection and conservation, the legendary sea explorers grandson, Fabien Cousteau, is leading an ambitious saturation project called Mission 31. But unlike his grandfather, who helped create and build Conshelfs innovative habitat Starfish House, Fabien Cousteau is renting the decades-old Aquarius, the only offshore, underwater laboratory still operating in the world. The school-bussize habitat rests in 63 feet of water on the sandy bottom next to a coral reef that is about 3.5 miles off Key Largo.

The skies off the Hawaiian island of Kauai will be a stand-in for Mars as NASA prepares to launch a saucer-shaped vehicle in an experimental flight designed to land heavy loads on the red planet. For decades, robotic landers and rovers have hitched a ride to Earths planetary neighbor using the same parachute design. But NASA needs a bigger and stronger parachute if it wants to send astronauts there. The space agency was scheduled to conduct a test flight Tuesday high in Earths atmosphere thats supposed to simulate the thin Martian air. Cameras rigged aboard the vehicle will capture the action as it accelerates to four times the speed of sound and falls back to Earth. Engineers cautioned that they may not succeed on the first try. As long as I get data, Ill be very happy, said project manager Mark Adler of the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The search for a way to land massive payloads on Mars predates the existence of NASA. Back then, engineers toyed with sending a winged spacecraft that would land like an airplane, but the idea was not feasible, space historians say.It eventually could be used for astronautsBy ALICIA CHANGAssociated PressSCIENCESee Cousteau, 3BPhoto courtesy NASAThis shows a saucer-shaped test vehicle holding equipment for landing large payloads on Mars in the Missile Assembly Building at the U.S Navys Pacific Missile Range Facility at Kekaha on the island of Kauai in Hawaii.See Mars, 2BIslamorada native Ryan Shattuck started competing in pro car racing four years before he could legally drive a vehicle on the road. The 16-year-old former Island Christian School student finished first place in the May 3 NASCAR Limited Late Model race at Caraway Speedway in Sophia, N.C. During the 30-lap race, cars can reach speeds of between 100 and 140 mph. The 450 horsepower cars have about half the power of a Division 1 NASCAR stockcar, which can reach speeds of just over 200 mph, but racing them is exhilarating all the same. We can still get after it pretty good, Shattuck said. Theres nothing like the feeling of speed. Its just incredible. This is the first year Shattuck competed in the Limited Late Model season, and he did not expect a win already. This is just too exciting. I had hoped we would log some wins this year, but I could have never imagined it to be this early in the season, he said. Shattuck began racing at age 12 and didnt take long to excel. In 2012, he was the national champion of the INEX Legends Young Lions division for open-wheel racing for both the road and dirt-modified courses. Racing takes up much of Shattucks time, which can make going to school fulltime difficult. Shattuck went to ICS until eighth grade. Since then, he has been enrolled in Florida Virtual School, an online school based in Orlando. It makes it a lot easier, Shattuck said. Its really helpful. He also credits his parents, Cindy and George Shattuck, with helping him succeed and keeping him focused on competing and keeping up with his academics. They provide me with so much emotional and financial support, Shattuck said. Theyre the greatest. Cindy and George Shattuck own Sundance Watersports at Hawks Cay Resort on Duck Key.

CarolinaReporter StaffRACING Photo courtesy RYAN SHATTUCKRyan Shattuck is all smiles as he stands by his car after winning the May 3 NASCAR Limited Late Model race in Sophia, N.C.Dolphin starting to sparkSummers here and the dolphin fishing is excellent. Fish of all sizes, from schoolies to slammers, are being found everywhere from the reef edge to 25 miles offshore. Watch for frigate birds to pinpoint the slammers, while terns are on the schoolies and gaffers. The blackfin tuna are scattered in the same areas the dolphin are found, and theyre big 15 to 20 pounds. Drop your baits way back to attract their attention. And any floating debris once cleaned of dolphin is worth fishing something deeper for wahoo. The mutton snapper bite is coming on strong on the wrecks, with most fish in the 10to 15-pound class. There are fish of similar size taken on the reef by anglers fishing for yellowtail snapper. Live baits, such as pinfish, live ballyhoo and small grunts, work well on the wrecks. Butterflied whole ballyhoo drifted back in your yellowtail slick will often produce good results on the reef. The shallow wrecks are also offering up nice-size black grouper, especially the artificial reefs dotting the Keys. Larger live baits grunts, blue runners and pinfish work well for the wreck-dwelling grouper. The yellowtail on the reef have been picky of late. If your favorite spot is working, but slow, stick with it. If not, move around until you find a feeding school. I recommend starting deep and working your way shallower. Tarpon are still biting well at the bridges and in Key West Harbor. But these coming days may be your last shot at the silver kings, as were never quite certain when they will exit our waters.The weeks bestOver the course of three days of oceanside fishing with Capt. Chuck Brodzki, Sven Bone from Dallas caught four tarpon (including three on fly) ranging in weight from 40 to 70 pounds. On his fourth and final day, he switched to a lighter fly rod and caught more than 200 snapper and sea trout on the shallow banks in Everglades National Park. Capt. Ariel Medero, of Big Game Sportfishing at the Hammocks in Marathon, has been catching a good number of dolphin of all sizes in areas anywhere from outside the reef to the swordfish grounds. Hes getting yellowtails on the reef and muttons and groupers on the reef and wrecks. And on the back side of Marathon, shark fishing has been on fire, and mangrove snapper are still plentiful. Shark and tarpon fishing comprised most of the trips for the SeaSquared crews last week. Lemon sharks ranging from five to seven feet are the primary species we see, but we had a cool bonus with a 7.5-foot tiger shark on one trip. And tarpon fishing at Bahia Honda continues to produce lots of action. We also had a few family fishing trips with snappers and sea trout coming back to the dock. Capt. Moe Mottice, of Moes Custom Charters in Key West, found plenty of dolphin spread out from 150 feet to well offshore, looking for birds while trolling ballyhoo. Snapper, tuna and dolphin are plentiful on the wrecks. And in Key West Harbor, theres great action with tarpon, sharks and snapper.

When the twin Viking landers became the first spacecraft to set down on Mars in 1976, they relied on parachutes to slow down after punching through the Martian atmosphere. The basic design has been used since including during the Curiosity rovers hair-raising landing in 2012. With plans to land heavier spacecraft and eventually humans, NASA needed a heftier solution. So it designed a supersonic parachute thats 110 feet in diameter twice as big as the one that carried the 1-ton Curiosity. Its so gigantic that it cant fit into the wind tunnels that NASA typically uses to test parachutes. Since its impractical to test unproven technology on Mars, NASA looked to Earth as a substitute. During the flight, a highflying balloon will loft the disc-shaped vehicle from the U.S. Navys Pacific Missile Range Facility in Kauai to 23 miles over the Pacific where it will be dropped. Then it will fire its rocket motor to climb to 34 miles, accelerating to Mach 4. The environment at this altitude is similar to Mars thin atmosphere. As it descends to Earth, a tube around the vehicle should inflate, slowing it down. Then the parachute should pop out, guiding the vehicle to a gentle splashdown in the Pacific. Robert Braun, space technology professor at Georgia Institute of Technology, called the project a highrisk, high-reward effort. The latest test program is advancing capabilities and creating the engineering knowledge needed for the next generation of Mars landers, Braun, who served as NASAs technology chief, said in an email. NASA plans more test flights next year before deciding whether to use the new parachute on a future Mars mission.The chute is hugeFrom Mars, 1BLIVING BRIEFSSummer kayak trips scheduledFriends and Volunteers of Refuges, a Lower Keys group that volunteers for the Keys national wildlife refuges, has planned its summer schedule for full-moon kayak tours.

Bahia Honda is at mile marker 36.8. Cheese steak minus the steak?Like Philadelphia itself, there is a lot to love about the citys signature sandwich the cheese steak. But that delicious combination of beef, onions and cheese isnt the sort of thing you want to pack away every day, unless youre looking to pack on pounds. So I decided to see if I could make a healthier sandwich that is inspired by the cheese steak, but is a bit more suited to the everyday. I started by swapping out the beef in favor of that most steak-like of mushrooms, the Portobello. Actually, its just the roomy cap of the Portobello, filled to the brim with roasted red peppers, grilled scallions, olives and mushroom trimmings, then topped with melted provolone cheese, and lubricated with a little bit of rosemary mayonnaise.Finally, the whole thing is set on a slice of grilled rustic bread. It may be meatless, but it is not a punk. And heartiness aside, Portobellos like all of their mushroom brethren is chock full of nutrients. But these big mushrooms have to be cleaned before they can be savored. Start by removing the dark gills on the underside, lightly scraping them out with a teaspoon. Then simply rinse the cap on both sides under cold running water to remove any dirt. I know that some folks advise against rinsing, preferring instead to wipe away the dirt with a damp cloth to prevent the mushrooms from getting waterlogged. In fact, a quick rinse doesnt harm them and its infinitely quicker and more thorough than wiping them clean. Just pat the caps dry afterward so theyll be able to absorb the marinade. And thats the amazing thing about Portobellos. Though they have high water content, if you plunk them into a flavorful marinade, they still absorb it quickly. Topping-wise, Ive gone the Mediterranean route, but youre welcome to substitute the toppings of your choice. Maybe youll want to grill and chop up some complementary mushrooms like shiitake or oyster and put them on top of the Portobello. Maybe youll opt to top it off with grilled broccoli, asparagus or onions. Likewise, if youre not crazy about provolone, you can swap in thin slices of mozzarella, cheddar or Italian Fontana. Finally, if dont like mayo on your sandwiches, dont use it. Dijon mustard works very nicely in its place. But however you customize it, I urge you to try adding this super-satisfying vegetarian ringer to the menu the next time youre grilling up hot dogs and burgers in the backyard, and see if you dont win some converts. To remove the gills from the underside of the Portobello mushrooms, use a spoon to gently scrape them out. What you need: One garlic clove, minced. One tablespoon Dijon mustard. Two tablespoons sherry vinegar. Two tablespoons extravirgin olive oil. Salt and ground black pepper. Four large Portobello mushrooms, stems and gills discarded. Half a cup light mayonnaise. Two teaspoons finely minced fresh rosemary. Olive oil cooking spray. Half a cup medium chopped jarred roasted red peppers. Half a cup pitted black olives, medium chopped. Six large scallions, bottoms trimmed. Four slices rustic wholegrain bread. Four thin slices provolone cheese (about 3 ounces total). Heat the grill to medium. In a small bowl, combine the garlic, mustard, vinegar, olive oil, and a hefty pinch each of salt and pepper. Brush the marinade on both sides of the mushrooms, then transfer them to a zip-close plastic bag, along with any remaining marinade. Let them marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine the mayonnaise and rosemary, then season with salt and pepper. In a medium bowl combine the peppers and olives, then season with pepper. Set aside. Spray the scallions with the cooking spray and grill them, turning often, until they are charred on the edges and crisp tender, three to four minutes. Transfer them to a cutting board and let them cool slightly. Medium chop the scallions and add them to the bowl with the peppers and olives. Mist the bread with cooking spray, then grill it until it is lightly toasted on both sides. Set aside. Grill the mushrooms, gill sides down, three to four minutes. Turn them over and grill on the on the second side until tender when pierced with a knife, another three to four minutes. Spoon a quarter of the olive-pepper mixture evenly on top of each mushroom. Top with a slice of cheese, cover the grill and cook until the cheese is melted, one to two minutes. Spread the mayonnaise mixture on each piece of bread. Transfer each mushroom to one slice of bread. Cut in half and serve right away. Start to finish: 40 minutes (25 active). Servings: Four.

Were going on an epic mission to live and work under the water for 31 days. Is everyone ready for that? Splashdown was a few hours later, beginning the $1.3 million, privately funded expedition that is scheduled to last one day longer than Conshelf II. If all goes according to plan, the aquanauts will surface July 2 after many hours of decompression. Students and faculty at Florida International University, Northeastern University and MIT will conduct in-depth science and research, but the missions primary focus is educational outreach to the world. Jacques Cousteau inspired me and I was a kid growing up in the cornfields of Ohio, said Mike Heithaus, executive director of the school of environment, arts and society at FIU. Fabien Cousteau is trying to do the same thing for this generation.Cousteau said: We want to inspire kids to get out in the water. Video games are fine, but you know what the real world is just as fascinating if not even crazier than the craziest video games. In 1963, the underwater world was as mysterious to most people as was outer space. Part of Jacques Cousteaus success was his storytelling ability. My grandfather could take this little lamp and tell an interesting story about it and explain why it was important, said Fabien Cousteau, 46. While so much has been learned about the oceans and its creatures and ecosystems in the past half century, Cousteau says these vast blue frontiers still remain mostly unknown. At the end of the day, we have explored less than 5 percent of the oceans, Cousteau said. Our aquatic backyard, because it has been so little explored, still has got so many mysteries left in it. The more people learn about the amazing creatures and habitats of the oceans, the more people will care and work toward preserving and conserving this vulnerable natural resource that is being destroyed at the hand of man by pollution, overconsumption and global warming, he says.Another worldWhen World Without Sun debuted a half century ago, there were skeptics who believed some of the jawdropping footage collected by Cousteau and his Conshelf II crew must have been fabricated because it was hard to believe. There was the great scene where oceanaut Andre Falco admits that even after 20 years of diving, Alone in the sea at night, Im still afraid. At night you meet strange creatures, shapes, colors and movement, stolen from nightmares. A sea devil flies with curling wings. I found myself alone, staring in fright, at a bush that walks. This tangle of roots and branches is a single animal. Conshelf IIs crew was exploring virgin territory for humans. This is far from the case with Mission 31, which is using a lab that has been anchored at the same location since 1993. Hundreds of divers have explored the area, including U.S. Navy personnel and astronauts training for NASA missions in space. Still, Fabien Cousteau says he thinks theres a great possibility his expedition will discover something new. I get goose bumps thinking about it, he said. His excitement stems from the story he heard about two technicians seeing fire-red worms through the porthole of Aquarius one night. Thousands and thousands of them were spinning in front of the porthole for as far as the eye could see. We had no idea what they were because they were not caught on camera tobe identified, Cousteau said. And during his recent 10day aquanaut training at Aquarius, Cousteau said he saw an interesting looking, seven-inch long millipede worm that he had never previously seen. Unfortunately I could not really observe it or take pictures of it because I was in the middle of training. But during 31 days, who knows, we might discover a new species on that reef. The Internet was in its infancy when Jacques Cousteau died in 1997 at age 87. His grandson is taking advantage of todays technology to reach millions in a day, and one way is by bringing VIPs into the habitat who are not necessarily connected directly to the ocean community. They will include actor Ian Somerhalder of the Vampire Diaries. That good-looking guy will be able to bring in people from circles that may or may not be connected to the ocean, Cousteau said.

C SPECIAL SECTION: CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR KEYS HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES www.keysInfonet.com | GRADUATES WEDNESDAY, JUNE 4, 2014 1C 2014 KEYS GRADUATES BY MARA LEEThe Hartford Courant When Ryan Hackett enlisted in the Marines at age 23, he didnt really have a good idea of where he was going. In a narrow sense, he assumed he would go to war. After all, the country was waging wars in both Afghanistan and Iraq at the time. But he didnt have a strong sense of where his life was heading. He didnt join out of patriotism, or benefits for college, or revenge for the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The best he can explain it is that he thought it would be an interesting experience. Going to Iraq in 2008, as the U.S. troop surge wound down, was, indeed, an interesting experience. But more important was that spend ing five years in the Marines gave him the direction he had lacked since graduating from high school in New Britain. Now hes identified goals that hes chasing at a breakneck pace. You really learn what it is to lead somebody and to be led by somebody really competent, Hackett said. In describing his eight months in Rawah, in Anbar Province not too far from Ramadi, he said: Im not kicking in doors and killing bad guys. He was distributing millions of dollars for reconstruction projects, for schools, government buildings and such. He also had to give condolence payments to the families of Iraqi civilians who were killed by the military. Hackett entered as a private and was promoted four ranks to sergeant. In his last year in the Marines, he was serving in California, responsible for getting money back from Marines who were given too large an advance for travel, or who were accidentally overpaid for their travel expenses. When he was getting out, a federal contractor offered him a job in the Washington, D.C., area that would have paid about $75,000 doing similar work. I wasnt a huge fan of that. Nobody likes the debt collector at all, Hackett said. So he turned down the job and came back to Connecticut to go to college. He had a years worth of credits accumulated over the years, from both before and during his time in the Marines, and he chose to finish at the University of New Haven because he liked the intake counselor and she wasnt too taken aback when he said he wanted to finish his degree in less than two years. Ever since hes gotten out of the Marines, Hackett has been in a hurry. He graduated in October 2012, even though, beginning in December 2011, he was working 30 hours a week at Yale as a financial assistant. At the same time he was living with his fiancee in Southbury and taking six courses, one more than a typical full-time student. I didnt sleep much, he said. Hackett was in a rush partly because it felt weird to be an under graduate at age 28, but also because he was already thinking about getting an MBA degree and wanted to have enough time left on the GI Bill to pay for it. For me, it seemed insane to leave money on the table, he said. I started getting my application ready before I was even done with my undergrad. The moment he finished his college courses, he applied for a pro motion at Yale, and a month later, he had moved into an accountant job at the Connecticut Mental Health Center, which is operated in part nership with the Yale Department of Psychiatry. Three months after his promotion, the two rungs above him at the mental health center opened up in quick succession, and he ended up becoming the top manager in the business office. He wasnt intimidated by the challenge. Almost as a result of the Marine Corps, you suffer a little bit of hubris, like you feel you cant not succeed, he said. You learn how to focus on a goal and just make it happen. In March 2013, he began an MBA program with Indiana University. Hackett shrugs off questions about taking on too much stress by taking major new responsibilities and going to grad school simultaneously. When you get out, you have a different perspective, he said. While things in civilian life can be stressful, its not the same as living in a war zone, even one thats becoming less dangerous as conditions improve. Hell finish the degree in March. Hackett and his wife, Kelley, are expecting their first child in August, and shes vetoed any more graduate school.His closest friends from the Marines are mostly on the West Coast, and he rarely meets other post 9/11 veterans in Connecticut. He misses the camaraderie sometimes. No matter how you try, youre never going to find anything like that, he said. Hackett said he never gets ques tions about the wisdom of the Iraq War since he got home, and as the years go by, he feels like attitudes toward him as an Iraq veteran are changing, too. It was a very different reaction a few years ago, he said. Strangers or new acquaintances, learning that he served in the war, would ask with wide eyes and concern in their voic es: Are you OK?, he said. Ive noticed it being different now. We dont get looked at as broken or something.ASSOCIATED PRESSThe chairman of IBM has told graduates of Rensselaer (rehn-suh-LEER) Polytechnic Institute that they stand at the dawn of a data-driven era. Ginni Rometty spoke at the Troy, New York-based institutes commencement Satur day. She told members of the Class of 2014 they were facing a new age being made possible by a new natural resource data. According to a release from RPI, Rometty said data will be to the 21st century what steam was to the 18th century, electricity to the 19th and hydrocar bons to the 20th. The 1,613 graduates also heard from geneticist MaryClaire King and from British computer scientist Tim Ber ners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web. The graduating students come from 44 states and 24 foreign nations. Graduates Congrats~2014~YOUR FUTUREIBM Chair to grads: Data is todays natural resource HIGHER LEARNINGWartime service helps Marine veteran excel academically Ryan Hackett (Patrick Raycraft/Hartfort Courant) LOOKING AHEADInspiring Grads: Far from trivial pursuitsBY TERESA THOMASMail Tribune, Medford, Ore.Cody Holliday wont be pigeonholed. While the St. Marys High School senior may say hes just being anti-main stream, its his willingness to try new things that makes him a favorite among the student body.While maintaining a 3.96 GPA, Holliday has hiked Mount Thielsen and gone caving, snowboarding and kayaking with the schools Outdoor Club. Also part of the Astronomy Club, hes toured NASAs Jet Propul sion Laboratory in Pasede na, Calif.; and, in January, presented on the evolution of red giants at the American Astronomical Society Con vention in Washington D.C.Twice a week, he mentors Daniel, a first-grader at VIBES Public Charter School, and on the week ends he enjoys watching intellectual movies, such as Primer, and playing video games and board games. Hes also proficient on multiple instruments -including guitar, bass and upright bass -and has his black belt in taekwondo. He loves all aspects of life, said his mom, Therese Holliday. He loves music. He loves science. Hes creative and intuitive. However, for an 18-yearold who just got his drivers license, Holliday has his priorities straight. One of the reasons Holli day stays busy is to distract himself from memories of his fathers and brothers deaths that continue to haunt his memory. When he was just 6 years old, Holliday was on the way to a dentist appointment with his dad and older brother when their car was hit by a tractor truck. My side of the car was the only side untouched, he said. The car spun, and I remember looking around. It was smoky. I tried to open the door. It was stuck so I climbed in the back, and they broke the window and pulled me out. I walked across glass and a woman in a minivan calmed me down. His dad and brother both died in the accident. At first, Holliday never wanted to talk about the horrific scene, his mother said. He met with a child psy chologist and, for three years, attended a grief sup port group for kids while trying to move on with his life. After graduating June 6, Holliday will have one last hoorah with his friends -a road trip to Canada -before moving to Corval lis to attend Oregon State University, where he plans to double major in computer science and electrical engineering. He said hed also like to go to either the University of Washington or Massachusetts Institute of Technology for his masters degree. Cody Holliday, a senior at St. Marys High School in Medford, Ore., excels in academics, in part, to keep his mind off thoughts of when his father and brother were killed in a car accident.
