Pedro Reinoso (above) pulls an unconscious man from the front seat of his Nissan Frontier pickup Tuesday morning. The truck crashed through the fence on the northbound lane of the 18-Mile Stretch around mile marker 114. Reinoso administered life-saving first aid to Richard LHommedleu, 62, of Tavernier, who was unconscious and barely breathing for about five minutes before fire-rescue units arrived from Key Largo and Miami-Dade. Javier Hernandez, a tiki-hut installer from Miami-Dade, was the first to tend to the victim and call 911.

Director Michael Doyle said staff was treating islands from Sugarloaf Key to No Name Key, as well as many offshore islands. Inspectors are checking about 700 known breeding areas that account for more than 200 acres. On an average day, Doyle said, Mosquito Control sprays 75,000 feet or the length of 250 football fields. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Key West, Ramrod Key received 7.04 inches of rain on Sunday, Marathon 3.84 inches and Duck Key 2.99 inches. Thunderstorms are expected to pick up again starting Thursday and last until next Tuesday. Weather permitting, the distribution of adulticide by airplane is scheduled for today over Key Largo and North Key Largo. Also weather permitting, aerial larviciding by helicopter will be done today and Thursday over Key West, and Thursday over Key Largo. Spraying has been more frequent this summer than past years. There are more mosquitoes this summer due primarily to heavier and more active rain and exceptionally high tides this summer, Doyle said. Either one or both together can produce mosquitoes.MOSQUITO CONTROLMosquito Control District kept busy trying to keep the population in check 100-pound yellowfin tuna landed at dockThe Keys are filled with blackfin tuna, a great-eating fish found offshore. But yellowfin tuna and a 100pound one at that? Blackfins max out around 45 pounds and yellowfins around 400 pounds. So imagine the surprise when a yellowfin estimated at 100 pounds was landed from a dock at the Anglers Reef resort around mile marker 84.5.Alex Hare, 22, from Destin spotted the fish Sunday cooling its heels in the resorts small oceanside harbor. He watched it for around 20 minutes and decided to try to catch it with a rigged-up gaff.Video taken shows Hare sinking the gaff into the side of the fish as it swam by the dock. A second person helped out with another gaff. The fish was hoisted onto the dock and then cleaned, with tuna filets going to the crowd that gathered to watch. I have absolutely no clue what the fish was doing there, said Hare, who has caught yellowfin on rod and reel while fishing in the Gulf of Mexico near oil rigs in 6,000 feet of water. It may have been sick, but for sure it was lost and it likely would not have survived. Beyond the benefits of fresh tuna for lunch and dinner, Hare won $100 when another resort guest argued with him about what kind of fish it was. He told me no way that was a tuna and said he would bet $100 on it, Hare said. But after we brought the fish on the dock, he got his wallet out and gave me 100 bucks.Destin angler gets big surprise at end of gaffFinally, the light at the end of the tunnelMore than 275 truckloads of concrete and 99.5 tons of steel rebar for a new seawall cap. Sixty-nine new street lights with more than eight miles of wiring. More than 11 miles of underground pipes (1.94 miles for sanitary sewers, 3.13 miles for drainage and 5.94 miles for water). Thats just part of whats gone into the rebuilt North Roosevelt Boulevard in Key West since work started on the $41.5 project in April 2012. A ribbon-cutting Tuesday will cap the rebuild on what was easily the worst road in the Southernmost City.Dean Walters, project spokesman for the state Department of Transportation, says motorists will immediately notice the lack of chronic ponding in the road and adjacent parking lots.This is supposed to handle up to three inches of rain per hour, Walters said. Its going to handle about anything we get and keep it off the roadway, and keep it off the properties, too. That was a big deal. Walters says major work was done with stormwater treatment and management, with tons of drainage work under the road to remove trash and oil before it goes into the bay. The road is also a little wider 4 inches to 12 inches and smoother. Planning and permitting was 10 years in the making.

been found.A good Samaritan boat crew sailing inbound to Key Largo spotted the sinking Jubilee late Monday afternoon, said U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Jon-Paul Rios, a District 7 spokesman.Rios said crew aboard the Coast Guard cutter Sawfish from Miami, small boat crews from Station Islamorada and crew aboard two helicopters searched more than 1,100 square nautical miles as of late Tuesday afternoon, but found no sign of Cullen or his vessel.A U.S. Navy helicopter from Naval Air Station Key West also took part in the search Monday night and early Tuesday morning. Crews used night-vision equipment to look for Cullen, said Lt. Billy Edson, NAS Key West senior watch officer. Rios said the Coast Guard received reports that Noah Cullen planned to dive near Molasses Reef. Noah Cullens mother, Tanya Cleary, said her son was last seen free-diving at French Reef around noon Monday. Since Noah is an experienced swimmer, Cleary said she thinks he tried swimming to shore once the vessel started taking on water. Annie describes Noah as an avid diver who would often take solo free-diving trips to snap underwater photos, so going out alone is not unusual.

Whether it happens depends on the weather. Fire staff from Everglades National Park, the Florida Forest Service and Monroe County Fire Rescue are helping with the urn operation. Prescribed, or intentional, burns are designed to remove dried underbrush that could cause wildfires.The burn will cover acres of 20 acres east of Key Deer Boulevard, south of Big Pine Road, and north of Mahogany Road within three small units. The burn units are pine rockland habitat and if not burned regularly, the habitat could progress to hardwood hammocks.Weather permitting, crews will begin burning at 8 a.m. Rain is forecast for Thursday and Friday.

Avail.Work to start on new mapsLegislative leaders Mon day laid out the fullest blueprint yet for a special session aimed at crafting new congressional districts, even as they continued a push for a Leon County judge to limit the impact of his ruling on this years elections.House Speaker Will Weatherford (R-Wesley Chapel) and Senate President Don Gaetz (R-Niceville) said the Legislature would return to Tallahassee and begin the session at noon Thursday, little more than a week before an Aug. 15 deadline to submit a redrawn map to Circuit Court Judge Terry Lewis.Specially formed House and Senate committees will meet later Thursday and Friday to try to come up with a plan that would answer Lewis initial ruling, issued last month, that struck down two districts Lewis said were drawn to help the ruling Republican Party. Lewis said the districts violated the anti-gerrymandering Fair Districts amendments that voters approved in 2010.The Keys became part of the new U.S. House District 26, now represented by Democrat Rep. Joe Garcia. Before redistricting, the Keys were in District 18 and represented by Republican Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. The new redistricting will likely not have an effect on the Keys.At issue are Congressional District 5, which is represented by Democratic Congress woman Corrine Brown and winds from Jacksonville to Orlando, and Congressional District 10, which is represented by Republican Rep. Dan Webster and is in the Orlando area.District 5 consolidates pockets of black voters, which critics say makes it easier to elect Republicans in neighboring districts. In District 10, Lewis said an appendage of white voters added to the seat was meant to help Webster. In a statement following the announcement of the initial schedule for the session, Gaetz made it clear that lawmakers intended to do as little as possible to answer Lewis complaints.Because the court held intact 25 of the states 27 congressional districts as the Legislature drew them, I believe we can and should meet the courts requirements with minimal impact on the rest of the state, he said.One of the groups that brought a lawsuit challenging the congressional districts said that, at least for the moment, it was waiting to see what lawmakers come up with.Deirdre Macnab, president of the League of Women Voters of Florida, said lawmakers had taken a first step by convening the special session. It remains to be seen whether they will decide to produce a map that meets the constitutional requirements, she said.However, in a filing with Lewis last month, critics of the Legislatures original map seemed to indicate that small changes wouldnt satisfy them.Keys district likely wont see rewritten linesBy BRANDON LARRABEENews Service of FloridaSTATE LEGISLATURE Diver is experiencedFrom Missing, 1A Photo courtesy ANNIE CULLENThe Jubilee takes on water Monday.

Three busted for illegal lobsterA Key West commercial fisherman found with unregistered lobster traps was arrested Saturday on multiple resource-violation counts, state marine officers report.Pablo Enrique AnayaRodriquez, 49, was released from the Monroe County jail Monday after posting $102,000 bond.FWC officers stopped the commercial boat My Twins as it headed out during the trap soak period before the regular lobster season.Anaya-Rodriquez was charged with 53 counts of actively fishing commercial lobster traps without having crawfish license tags attached to his traps, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. State-issued trap tags are required as part of a program to limit the number of wooden traps used to catch lobster in Florida.When people operate illegally, it not only harms the resources but it takes business away from lawful commercial fishermen, Capt. David Dipre said from the FWC office in Marathon.Speared lobsterTwo Stock Island men were charged with lobsterpoaching charges Saturday at the Boca Chica Bridge in the Lower Keys. Andrey Fattakhov, 33, and Maxim Staroverov, 30, face counts including having speared and undersize lobster, possessing wrung tails in a closed season.For more on this story, go to www.KeysInfoNet.com.CRIME FRONTKeynoter StaffHeroin, other drugs foundA Grassy Key man who was shot in the leg during a home-invasion robbery in May was arrested, along with three other men, on drug charges Monday. Robert Moir, 40, was taken into custody after Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputies served a search warrant at the Overseas Highway residence near mile marker 58 around 1 p.m. According to the Sheriffs Office, four detectives and a sergeant with the Special Investi gations Unit found heroin, believed to be packaged for sale. Multiple pills, digital scales, marijuana and liquid heroin inside of a syringe also were seized. Other suspects arrested include Randy Jones, 33; Joshua Deakins, 26; and Serguei Koudriavtsev, 53. All list a Grassy Key address.Jones was detained after a detective caught him walking up to Moirs back door. Deputies inspected his room at a nearby resort, where Jones said his 7-year-old niece was staying. Inside the room, deputies said they found marijuana, Oxy codone and heroin, agency spokeswoman Becky Herrin said.GRASSY KEYKeynoter Staff MOIR KOUDRIAMooring field appears deadConcerns from on-shore residents seem to have scuttled Monroe Countys preferred site for a new Upper Keys mooring field. There is no Plan B, County Mayor Sylvia Murphy said Tuesday.In March, county commissioners named Key Largos Buttonwood Sound, off the bayside at mile marker 99, as the anchorage most suitable to accommodate a new mooring field for liveaboard residents and cruising visitors.But two nearby businesses that had expressed interest in serving as a land base for the Buttonwood Sound mooring field have now decided against it.The owners of Point of View Key Largo RV Resort on Buttonwood Sound cannot support a Buttonwood Sound mooring field, operator Jim Saunders wrote to the Island of Key Largo Federation of Homeowner Associations.The RV parks experience with those who are mooring in that area now has been very problematic, Saunders wrote in July. We have persons living on boats coming into the common restrooms at all times, and those who have trashed the facilities.We have been forced to install security cameras and night-time security guards, he continued. I dont mean to suggest all of the liveaboards are bad people, but our experience has been bad.Many of the parks neighbors were adamantly opposed to the mooring field, Saunders said. This is sad, as we once felt some managed moorings might be feasible. That is no longer the case.A mooring field charges rent to use a permanent mooring structure rather than let boaters set their own anchors that could damage seagrass and other environmental features. The best sites for mooring fields are near shopping and other amenities.At a July 9 information meeting hosted by the homeowners federation, about 100 people turned out to voice concerns, said group President Dottie Moses. We asked for a show of hands of who supported the mooring field, Moses said. There were no hands. In March, a county consultant described three areas that could be suitable for new mooring fields. The water body generally considered in dire need of a managed mooring field, Boca Chica Basin in the Lower Keys, suffers from a lack of any upland property willing to serve as a land base.Buttonwood Sound, which the consultants described as having the potential to provide moorings for up to 100 vessels, then was selected as the site most suitable.County Marine Resources staffers were told to begin seeking state Department of Environmental Protection approval and a submerged-bottom lease in Buttonwood Sound. The state could have objected to mooring boats over the sounds expanses of healthy seagrass, staff pointed out.Without a suitable Buttonwood Sound property capable of providing a dinghy dock and bathhouse facilities, the project appears to be dead in the water, Murphy said.Park operator no longer desires to manage itKEY LARGOBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgAnother judge rules for coupleIn the latest victory for same-sex couples, a Broward County judge has struck down Floridas ban on gay marriage, but this time to open the door for a lesbian divorce.Circuit Court Judge Dale Cohen ruled Monday that the states voter-approved prohibition against gay marriage violates the due process clause of the U.S. Constitution, echoing recent decisions from two other judges in Monroe and Miami-Dade counties.But in the Broward County case, Heather Brassner was trying to end a civil union with Megan Lade. The pair had entered into a civil union in Vermont in 2002, but Brassner wanted a dissolution of the union so she can marry another woman, according to court filings.Cohen was unable to grant the dissolution without first deciding whether the state recognizes same-sex marriages in other states. Floridas ban, put into the constitution by voters in 2008, denies some citizens, based on their sexual orientation, the fundamental right to marry, and does so without a legitimate state purpose, Cohen wrote in a 16page order.The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled on numerous occasions that the right to marry is a central part of the liberty protected by the due process clause included in the 14th Amendment, Cohen wrote, rejecting the states argument that the same-sex marriage ban is supported by history and tradition. Cohen also included an immediate stay on his order, placing it on hold until appeals in the cases in Monroe and Miami-Dade Monroe counties are resolved. Lawyers on both sides anticipate that the cases, likely to be consolidated, will wind up before the Florida Supreme Court, and many are also expecting the U.S. Supreme Court to give the final say on the issue.The two Keys men are Key West bartenders William Lee Jones and Aaron Huntsman.But this time, its to help dissolve unionNews Service of FloridaSAME-SEX MARRIAGE
to do. However, the major improvements are finished. Its going to be an absolutely exquisite entrance for the city with the rebuilding of the hotels there, Walters said. The Triangle [Roosevelt and U.S. 1] will have lights for crossing, which we didnt have before. The existing infrastructure was 70 years old the promenade is much wider in places, which is better for recreation and for people walking to and from work. There are lights now on the promenade so in the evening, we have these nice lights to make it much safer. Sidewalks have also been improved, and some were installed in areas where there were none. No additional crosswalks have been installed, but a new stoplight at Searstown now has a push-button signal for pedestrians.There are other crosswalks further up the boulevard, Walters said, but crosswalks with that many lanes is challenging to say the least, mostly because most motorists dont know or obey the rules of crosswalks. Local businesses are happy to see the work coming to an end, though one physicians office says the impact to business was minimal.Being a physicians office, patients are going to come regardless of construction, said Natalie Rogers, administrator for doctors Robert Catana and David Perry at Key West Orthopedics, 3428 N Roosevelt. I think it might have had a bigger impact on retail businesses. For instance, I would always run to Walgreens every single day; well, I just didnt go because it took so long.She says there were days when it was bumper to bumper that patients wouldnt show, or they would call saying they were stuck in traffic.Rogers says the payoff, though, is worth it.Its fantastic, she said. Its so nice to finally have sidewalks out front; we used to have to walk on the shoulder of the road. Theres a turn lane now, so its easier for traffic to get around. It looks beautiful; we look out and see all the rows of palm trees and its finished and clean, so its definitely an asset for us.As a mom, Rogers is also glad construction is wrapping up before the Aug. 18 start of school because the morning drop-off routine wont involve sitting in traffic for so long. More details of what exactly was done:Project length: 2.95 miles.Cost: $41,560,971.52 (DOT is paying $31.8 million, the city put in $4.3 million for the new sewer main and the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority added $5.4 million for the new water line).Installation of 134 underground drainage structures.To replace existing seawall, 1.7 miles of sheet pile.Replacement of 18 signal mast arms with new 150 mph wind-rated mast arms.The new traffic signal with pedestrian crossing at Searstown intersection.Nearly six miles of sidewalk (including promenade). ConsulTech Inc. did the design. The contractor was the de Moya Group. Construction manager was AMEC Environment & Infrastructure Inc. The ribbon-cutting is set for 10 a.m. Tuesday at the Searstown crosswalk.More than two years later, doneFrom Roosevelt, 1A Doyle said Mosquito Control treated about 14,000 acres in June compared to monthly averages of 7,000 acres. Salt marsh mosquitoes are hatching in the Lower Keys and blowing in from the Everglades. Any still pool of water can produce mosquitoes within four days. Doyle said inspectors move fast, checking rain gauges every morning and scouting areas where mosquitoes are likely to reproduce. But homeowners should do their part, too, and empty any standing water around their houses. The heavy rains follow a busy month for Mosquito Control. In July, a perigee moon a full moon that occurs at the closest point to Earth in its elliptical orbit greatly affected the tides, making the tides both higher and lower. Doyle said then that billions of mosquito eggs were laid during dry periods and begin hatching within hours after high tide. With August expected to have more rain than July, Doyle urges the public to contact Mosquito Control if they run into any pools of standing water. If water lasts four days or more, it can produce a batch of mosquitoes, Doyle said. People can call and describe it to us. They can go to the website and put in a web service.

A Lower Keys businessman tries for the second time to unseat a Monroe County Commission incumbent in the Aug. 26 District 2 primary.Danny Coll, 56, of Cudjoe Key challenges George Neugent, 66, of Marathon in the Republican primary. The winner faces Democrat Eleanor McAdams of Little Torch Key in the Nov. 4 general election (early voting starts Monday and goes through Aug. 23). Neugent and Coll faced off in 2010, with Neugent winning the 6,524-vote primary by 640 votes. Neugent, seeking his fifth four-year term on the County Commission, said in 2010 that he would likely step down from the commission this year. But he filed for reelection this spring, citing a lot of loose ends that need to be tied up and the improved health of his wife, Susan. Coll said he plans to use common sense gained from a successful business career to help make county policy. He previously owned the APA Auto Parts store on Big Pine Key and a private ambulance company. My track record shows Ive always been involved in the community, said Coll, president-elect of the Lower Keys Rotary and a past president of the Big Pine Key Volunteer Fire Department. Neugent, retired after a career as an engineer and owner of Porkys Bayside Barbecue and the 53rd Street Dock and Deli in Marathon, points to his experience with issues facing the county. Workforce housing and the insurance problem, both windstorm and flood insurance, are two of the big things were going to have to address, Neugent said.Both candidates say the Cudjoe Regional Wastewater system must be completed in a timely and cost-efficient manner, but strongly disagree about particulars. The system, which will serve around 7,000 properties from Cudjoe Key through Big Pine Key, was initially estimated to cost $156 million but thats gone up due to the addition of grinder pumps rather than using a gravity system in many areas.Neugent has largely defended the current design of the system, particularly when it comes to setting the number of Lower Keys properties that will be assigned to use grinder pumps. Coll contends the reliability of grinder pumps remains in question, and has criticized a plan to use shallow-water injection wells for the treated effluent. District 2 runs from the Lower Keys to south Marathon.

Rick Scott wants the head of state-backed Citizens Property Insurance Corp. to explain why Scotts requested ban on foreign travel hasnt been followed. Karl Rasmussen, Scotts director of Cabinet affairs, sent a sharply worded letter Thursday to Citizens President Barry Gilway advising him to attend the Aug. 19 Cabinet meeting to discuss why Citizens board members continue to take international business trips. Gov. Scott previously called on Citizens board members to change their travel policy so it prohibited international travel and permitted only essential employees to attend board meetings, Rasmussen wrote. Recent media stories report that not only have these requests been rebuffed, but Citizens board members have continued international travel, sometimes at excessive costs to state taxpayers. Gilway issued a single sentence reply to the media that he would attend. I received the governors request today and am really looking forward to updating the Cabinet on this issue, Gilway said in the release.The Palm Beach Post reported Sunday that Citizens Chairman Chris Gardner was given approval to spend two nights in a $425-per-night resort in Bermuda in April. He was there ostensibly to negotiate a reinsurance contract.In March 2013, the Citizens board implemented new travel restrictions for employees.By JIM TURNERNews Service of FloridaSTATE GOVERNMENT By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org
Two candidates vying for a seat on the Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board are pushing for new approaches to fighting the bugs. Land surveyor Eddie Martinez, 39, of Key Largo and certified public accountant Tom McDonald, 68, of Tavernier face off in the Aug. 26 Republican primary in District 5. The winner goes against Democrat Geoff Bailey of Key Largo in the Nov. 4 general election. Technology and efficiency are two of the biggest issues on which Martinez and McDonald are running. McDonald, who served on the board from 1994 to 1998, wants more financial accountability and less of what he calls wasteful spending. The 35-year resident said he is familiar with people sitting on the board and has the experience to make sure money is spent wisely. A lot of people I know want a CPA back on the board because they do costbenefit analysis, McDonald said. Were coming into a time period where the [property tax] assessments are going back up. The general principle is if theres money, spend it. My philosophy is if youre going to spend money, you have to defend why. Martinez says money isnt necessarily being wasted but could be managed better through technology. He says the district hasnt embraced it enough. Were still doing things manually. In business, that has changed, its now more streamlined and more efficient, the three-year resident, coming from Miami, said. I feel that I can make a difference and that my expertise in the tech field will bring Mosquito Control up to date. We have to focus on technology and bettering it, he said. It keeps the public more informed and makes the job easier for inspectors. Both candidates favor the use of drones to fight mosquitoes, something district Director Michael Doyle has embraced though not yet employed. Sometimes theres fear with innovation because they believe its going to replace employees, McDonald said, but we have to move forward with innovations because thats what kills mosquitoes. Martinez says the district needs to develop a smartphone app to better pinpoint the locations of mosquitoes. By having one available to the public, Martinez believes dispatchers can focus in on problem areas better. Martinez said the current system of blanket spraying is inefficient. Itd be the difference of carpet-bombing someone you want to eliminate in this case mosquitoes versus using a pinpoint missile fore precision, Martinez said. It makes it easier for everybody and would end the user record problem. Martinez is on the fence about releasing genetically modified mosquitoes in Old Town Key West, which Doyle has proposed as a way to kill the population of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, which caused a dengue fever outbreak in 2009. Representatives to the board hold four-year terms.

Thus saving public funds and making Mosquito Control more effective at a faster pace, he said. As for the districts long-planned pilot project to release genetically modified mosquitoes in Old Town Key West, to fight dengue-carrying mosquitoes, Martinez said hes on the fence about that. The highly scrutinized project is under review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. It would be aimed at curtailing Aedes aegypti mosquitoes that caused a dengue fever outbreak there in 2009. I dont think all the research is back. Nature has done a really good job over the last 2 billion years. We need to make sure that we know what were doing, he said.

Its going to lead to saving a lot of money and thats the biggest fight on the table there, he said. For instance, drones; thats absolutely going to save a whole bunch of money. The district in August 2013 hosted North Carolinabased Condor Aerial for a demonstration flight of an unmanned autonomous vehicle, or UAV. The district is exploring whether infrared cameras on the drones could spot shallow-water pools that are fertile mosquito breeding grounds. Also, controlling the Mosquito Control budget. I think its more like if youve got an expenditure, it better be something that furthers the purpose. The budget has gotten out of control over the years, he said.

Hunting in TexasGUEST COLUMNSThere was a time and not that long ago when the public interest was well represented in Tallahassee. Acting on its behalf were such lawmakers from South Florida as Dick Pettigrew, Bill Sadowski, Marshall Harris, Jack Gordon, Sandy DAlemberte, Elaine Gordon, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Bob Butterworth and Carrie Meek, to mention a few who come easily to mind. Over the same period, we had governors for whom protecting and advancing the public interest was a top priority. They knew who wrote the big checks, even accepted some, but still acted on behalf of those who couldnt pay to play teachers, cops, firefighters and the working poor, immigrants. Im thinking of governors like Reubin Askew, Bob Graham, Lawton Chiles and Jeb Bush. Im not suggesting any of them deserve canonization. They often acted in their own selfinterest, but in the long run their selfinterest lined up squarely with the public interest. These were elected leaders who understood that public service meant serving the public interest. They believed in the commonweal, the greater good. Oh, where are such leaders now? Out at the King Ranch in Texas shooting themselves some deer, drinking bourbon and branch and sitting around the fire of a night feasting on some tasty barbecue. Resting up after a long day on the hunt on Frette linens in a luxurious bunkhouse.All courtesy of U.S. Sugar of Clewiston, which operates solely in its self-interest. That includes seeking laws and regulations that make it easier (and cheaper) to farm thousands of acres of sugar cane in and around Lake Okeechobee, whose cultivation requires huge amounts of water and fertilizer, the runoff of which pollutes the Everglades. You have to ask yourself, how did the governor, current and future House speakers and chairs of important legislative committees justify going on some 20 trips to the King Ranch knowing that U.S. Sugar was picking up all or most of the bill? Did they say to themselves, Nobody will ever know? Or, I can accept this and still be independent? Or, Hey, the governors going so why cant I?Im reminded of one of the greatest political aphorisms ever uttered, which I will clean up a bit for a family newspaper. Jesse Unruh, then speaker of the California State Assembly, once said: If you cant eat their food, drink their booze, mess around with their women and then vote against them in the morning, you dont belong in politics. It appears the top elected leadership of our state doesnt belong in politics because they did most of what Unruh described and then voted for them in the morning, afternoon and evening. Distressingly, it appears to be legal because a loophole in state ethics laws governing gifts to lawmakers allows such boondoggles as long as theyre paid for through a third party. In this case, the Republican Party of Florida. U.S. Sugar paid the party $95,000 to be the pass-through for these trips, which are listed in party records as for fundraising. Oh, and Gov. Rick Scott says no state business was discussed during these jaunts. I wonder what was. A month after returning from bagging a deer, which were told he mounted at his own expense, Scott appointed a King Ranch executive in charge of their agricultural acreage in Florida to the South Florida Water Management District, which includes the Keys. He may have been well qualified for the job, but it still doesnt pass the smell test. And Scott signed a bill into law that lets the sugar industry pay a tiny percentage of the cost of Everglades cleanup, despite a constitutional amendment that says the polluter must pay. There are good and dedicated men and women of principle who serve in the Legislature, but they are subservient to party leaders who bow before the special interests. Never in my memory has the public interest, the commonweal, been so flagrantly ignored in Florida as it is now in favor of doing the bidding of big, monied special interests. The energy, insurance, agriculture, manufacturing and medical industries are having a field day in Tallahassee. But none more so than Big Sugar. So far this year, U.S. Sugar has contributed $2.2 million to various Florida politicians and their political action committees. The governor has raked in $534,000 all by himself. This is the same person who four years ago slammed his GOP primary opponent, Bill McCollum, as bought and paid for by Big Sugar. This is the same person who vowed to go to Tallahassee and change the culture. Looks like the culture changed him. Reprinted from the Miami Herald. Michael Putney is a longtime newsman for WPLG-Channel 10 in Miami and hosts the Sunday morning news show This Week in South Florida.The most basic part of a judges job is making sound, reasonable and fair decisions based on the law for all who come before her or him. And while a specific law doesnt appear to be in play here, the most sound, reasonable and fair decision Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Tegan Slaton can make for himself, his colleagues and those who have cases before him is to drop his campaign for re-election and resign from the bench.Slatons health has deteriorated to the point that not once, but twice since mid-June he had to be removed from court by the chief judge while he was hearing a case.The most recent occurrence came Friday, when Chief Judge Luis Garcia ordered him removed during witness testimony in a Family Court case. Observers say Slaton was incoherent and not making sense when he spoke. Slaton then penned a note to Garcia, saying simply, Please be advised that I will be out on a leave of absence until further notice due to my ongoing medical condition. Thank you for your courtesy and consideration in this matter.The earlier episode happened June 12, when he was ordered off the bench as he was being presented evidence in a child dependency case. In that case, he blamed the prescription drug Ambien for making him hallucinate.Slaton has acknowledged he has health problems but has not said what they are. Fair enough, thats a privacy issue for him and his family. But no matter what those problems are, they are having a very real effect on the people who have matters before him. And Family Court is no fun place to begin with. The cases generally are very emotional for all involved and often involve the most at-risk children.And each time Slaton has to take extended time off he has done so in the past since his election nearly six years ago in a hotly contested race he adds a burden to his fellow judges, who must pick up his cases. The Keys should have a full complement of four Circuit Court judges. With Slaton out indefinitely, the court is down to two since then-Judge David Audlin resigned in May two years into his second-six year term, citing lack of privacy in his personal life. Trial Court Administrator Holly Elomina says Audlins cases, mostly foreclosures and other civil matters, were picked up by retired Judge Sandra Taylor serving in a senior-judge role. So those are covered for now. Audlins seat will be filled when Gov. Rick Scott decides who among four recommended candidates from the Keys Judicial Nominating Commission should replace him. Commission Chairman Bob Shillinger says that may happen maybe at the end of this month. Slatons absence also is not fair to his two opponents in his judicial race, Key Largo attorney Jack Bridges and Key West attorney Bonnie Helms. The primary election is Aug. 26. If none of the three gets 50 percent of the vote plus one, the two with the most votes would go to a runoff in November. The ultimate winner is seated next Jan. 6.Slaton remaining as a judge considering his serious problems is causing lots of disarray for his colleagues and, most importantly, those with cases before him. We dont see how he can remain in judgment of others when his physical problems are taking such a toll on his mental state.We hope Slaton focuses on his health problems. He cant do that while still on the bench and trying to run a campaign. He should remove himself from both and let the governor appoint the winner in his race to serve before the Jan. 6 swearing-in date.

The first power plant in Key West dates to 1887 and was constructed by J.J. Phillbrick on Emma Street. The steam plant on Trumbo was constructed by then-City Electric System in 1951 on landfill. It went online in 1952 and remained in operation until 1991, when it was decommissioned following the 1987 construction of the transmission line to the mainland electric grid.HISTORIC STEAM PLANT Photo courtesy TURTLE HOSPITALPassengers aboard the Yankee Freedom ferry out of Key West on July 25 enjoy a presentation on sea turtles on their way out to Fort Jefferson in Dry Tortugas National Park.

Turtle Hospital staff goes out on the ferry one or two times a month for the presentations. The next scheduled dates are Aug. 7 and 9.EDUCATIONAL FERRY RIDE PUTNEYWhen a military veteran isnt a veteranSeveral elected officials from South Florida and numerous agencies are planning a veterans outreach event on Thursday to help local veterans obtain benefits, drivers licenses and IDs, bus passes and access to other services. The events organizers should be commended for their efforts. Unfortunately, despite our collective commitment to provide for those who served in uniform, many who experienced combat and received serious physical and psychological wounds do not benefit from societys attention and resources because they are not considered veterans under federal law. As a result, they are often ineligible for the very Veterans Administration programs that are meant to help them with a successful return to civilian life. Many of these former soldiers, Marines, sailors and airmen served in combat but received an Other than Honorable (OTH) discharge from service. Recent studies have established a strong connection between the types of injuries that todays veterans are receiving, such as post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury, and the relatively minor misconduct that can lead to an OTH discharge. For example, a 2010 study of 91,825 Marines found that wardeployed Marines diagnosed with PTSD were 8.6 times as likely to have a drug-related discharge compared with Marines without a psychiatric diagnosis, and were 11.1 times more likely to have a misconduct discharge compared to their peers who did not have a psychiatric diagnosis. Misconduct attributable to combat injuries can take many forms. Service members might self-medicate with alcohol or drugs as a result of their PTSD symptoms. Self-medication with drugs is misconduct, and self-medication with alcohol often leads to incidents of misconduct. PTSD and TBI can also result in poor impulse control and impaired judgment. Many service members are discharged for relatively minor misconduct after they have already been found unfit for further duty as the result of combat injuries. According to Department of Defense statistics, approximately 5 percent of those who served in the post9/11 era received an OTH discharge. Many of those with an OTH discharge are not eligible for VA benefits, including compensation for combat and other in-service injuries, disability pension for low-income veterans, healthcare, education benefits and vocational rehabilitation as a result of their discharge. They must also carry the stigma of an OTH discharge, which can make securing employment difficult. A denial of benefits following an OTH discharge is not automatic. After a service member receives an OTH discharge, VA makes an administrative determination as to whether the former service member is a veteran under federal law. This means that a VA worker decides whether these warriors are legally veterans. VA does not keep track of these determinations so we have no way of knowing exactly how many former services members are being denied veteran status. While a denial is not automatic, in practice, VAs default is to deny benefits to those with an OTH discharge, even for a single incident of misconduct. The population of former service members that are denied veteran status remains largely invisible and unacknowledged in the national discourse on solving the problems faced by our nations veterans. They made the same sacrifices and carry the same burdens as veterans, but they do not receive the support that they desperately need to live a life of dignity. It is essential that those who create programs on behalf of those who served our country are aware of the problems faced by non-veteran former service members so that they may design programs to fit the unique needs of this population. Nobody who served our country in uniform should be ignored and marginalized, particularly those who sacrificed so much in service of our country. This is reprinted from the Miami Herald.

Wednesday, August 6, 2014 9A Keynoter KeysInfoNet.com Business Feds: Allow detailed finance complaintsThe U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has heard from hundreds of thousands of consumer who feel wronged by banks and finance companies. Now the agency wants the public to hear from those consumers, too. On July 23, the bureau proposed allowing consumers to publish online the details of their complaints against lenders and financial service providers. Those narratives would augment the bureaus consumer complaint database, which lists complaints about checking accounts, credit cards, student loans and other financial products.If consumers choose to make their complaints public, the companies involved would then be given a chance to write a public response.By proposing to share peoples stories, we are giving consumers an opportunity to be heard by the entire world and not simply by a government agency and its officials, bureau Director Richard Cordray said.The consumer bureaus current database simply lists the company being complained about, a general subject matter like deposits and withdrawals, and whether the complaint has been resolved.By adding the narratives, the bureau believes it will help consumers determine where to take their business and identify systemic problems. A similar complaint reporting system is already in place at the Consumer Product Safety Commission, which seeks to identify dangerous products from appliances to toys. Consumer groups were elated by the bureaus proposal, which Ruth Susswein, a deputy director at ConsumerAction, called essential for consumers to protect themselves. Banks have complained bitterly about the bureaus existing database, however, so plans to add to it are unlikely to be popular with the industry. I dont think its the role of the government to get into an Internet gripe site business, said Alan Kaplinksy, an attorney with Ballard Spahr LLP, which defends banks from consumer litigation.

We are trying to make all the soul-sucking work that comes with e-mail go away, Rosenstein says. This came out of a deep, heartfelt pain that Dustin and I were experiencing, along with just about everyone around us.The misery keeps mounting in the corporate world, which remains an e-mail haven.This year, each worker using a business e-mail account will send and receive a daily average of 121 mail messages, a 15 percent increase from 105 per day in 2011, according to the Radicati Group, which tracks e-mail usage. In contrast, consumers have been weaning themselves from electronic inboxes and increasingly turning to digital alternatives such as Facebook, Twitter and mobile messaging. More e-mail translates to less productivity as workers spend more time weeding their inboxes and puzzling over convoluted exchanges among a hodgepodge of colleagues and managers scattered in various offices or sometimes just a cubicles away. To exacerbate matters, vital pieces of business information are often corralled in a workers inbox instead of in a database that can be searched by anyone working on the same project.More productivityIf companies set up communications channels that worked more like social networks, the amount of time workers could devote to other things would increase by about 8 percent each week, according to estimates from a study by the McKinsey Global Institute. Another 6 percent of the workweek would be freed up if the shift away from e-mail could unlock more of the socalled dark matter hidden in individual inboxes, McKinsey estimates. These are the problems Asana is trying to solve. Its bare-bones system, free to use for teams of up to 15 workers, is set up so information can be easily seen by anyone authorized by the company. Asana hopes to make money by selling subscriptions to more sophisticated versions of its software that can accommodate larger groups of workers.Moskovitz began working on what would turn into an early prototype for Asana while he was still at Facebook in late 2007. He had become frustrated with e-mails shortcomings and set out to build a better alternative for managing Facebooks projects. Before long, he was spending all his time figuring out how to escape e-mail instead of managing Facebooks engineers.A lot of people thought I was crazy, but from my perspective it was clearly the smartest thing that I could do to make [Facebook] better, Moskovitz recalls. He decided to exit Facebook in late 2008 to start Asana, leaving behind a prototype that Facebook still relies on to manage its projects instead of e-mail. Moskovitz remains one of Facebooks major shareholders, with stock worth about $7 billion, affording him the luxury to gamble on a startup that may be fighting a Sisyphean battle.I am not sure what anyone thinks they will be accomplishing by getting rid of email, say Sara Radicati, editor of the Radicati Group. If we didnt have e-mail, people would be spending all their time on the phone and other channels of communication. Is that really any better?Cant be killedWhile the Radicati Group foresees consumer e-mail usage continuing to wane during the next four years, the firm predicts the volume of business e-mail will rise another 16 percent by 2018 to an average of 140 daily emails sent and received by each user. E-mail cant be killed completely because its the lowest common denominator in business, concedes Stewart Butterfield, who has been trying to sell companies on the merits of another alternative form of corporate communication called Slack. Like Moskovitz, Butterfield is better known for his involvement at another popular technology service: He co-founded Flickr, a photosharing site bought by Yahoo Inc. nine years ago. Without providing specifics, Asana says millions of workers are using its system, primarily the free version. In many cases, Asana customers say they have reduced e-mail usage by as much as 80 percent, according to Rosenstein.We are really reaching peak e-mail, Rosenstein says. Our customers keep asking: Can you replace more and more of my e-mail?Rapidly growing startups such as Airbnb, Uber, Pinterest and Dropbox embraced Asanas task-management system early in their corporate lives in hopes of avoiding email addiction as they mature.And Asana isnt alone in its quest to eradicate e-mail. Other online services, built especially for business purposes by companies such as Jive Software and Microsofts Yammer, are on a similar mission.Despite these efforts, email remains pervasive. For instance, Pinterest product manager Michael Yamartino says he still sifts through 200 to 300 e-mails each day, with 70 percent of the traffic coming from co-workers. Even after internal meetings, Pinterest still relies on mass e-mails to let everyone know what is going on. Asana is better for tracking tasks, but e-mail still has an important place, Yamartino says.Weaning awayTwo of Asanas own employees, Emily Kramer and Jim Renaud, wanted to prove its possible to survive without e-mail so they vowed to avoid checking their company and personal inboxes for all of April.It was the longest stretch that Kramer, 30, had gone without checking her e-mail since she was in the sixth grade when she opened her first account on AOL. Renaud, 39, hadnt lived without email since he enrolled in college 20 years ago.Kramer stayed out of her email, even though she kept fretting about what she might miss at work and had to deal with complaints from friends about the inconvenience of finding other ways to keep her in the loop about a bachelorette party they were planning. She also found herself dealing with lengthier mobile messages that read like e-mail.A co-worker had told me, I think it would be easier to go without oxygen than e-mail, Kramer says. I definitely dont think thats true any longer. Renaud didnt avoid email the entire month. Once, he needed to go into his Asana account to check on an issue affecting the companys customers. On another day, Renaud couldnt resist opening his personal e-mail to retrieve a $100 rebate on some tires that he bought for his car. When he clicked on an email link confirming the rebate, he was informed it would take six to eight weeks to get his money.I have learned that I dont need to check my e-mail all the time, Renaud says.Great vision or hallucination?

Story, 2B Dolphins start practiceCoach Paul Davis wants his Marathon High School football team to work itself out of the minor leagues and back to competing for a state title.But Davis, entering his first year as Dolphin football coach, is realistic about his 2014-15 team that opened practice Monday. Davis anticipates 30 to 40 prep players and another 10 middle-school players will be practicing within a few days.Still working out specific plays, Davis plans to run a spread offense for more passing and a 3-4 or 4-4 defense, depending upon the opponent.We want to keep everything basic at first so the kids can execute it without thinking too much, Davis said. Were going to be playing in a developmental conference. We wont play for playoffs or a championship. The Dolphins, along with Ransom Everglades School, Miami County Day and Pompano Beach High School, agreed to join a developmental division of the Southeast Football Conference earlier this year. Teams in that division are unable to compete in conference playoffs, and will not play local rival Coral Shores High this fall.Even if the Dolphins will not compete for a title, Davis has a vision for his team. In addition to physical conditioning and improving the basics, Davis is focusing on social and emotional learning.Well be teaching kids how to problem-solve and create goals, Davis said. We want to teach that make them not only better at football but also a better person. Key returning players include junior quarterback Max Elliot, senior offensive lineman Mark Keller, and junior Trace Goodwin and senior Tommy Lancaster, both defensive linemen. Junior Sean Roberts moves from wide receiver to running back. Robi Carcia, who Davis described as the athlete of the team, will play both ways. Davis said each of the returning players has gotten faster and stronger through summer conditioning. The Dolphins have much to overcome if they want to return to winning seasons. In 2003, Marathon reached the second round of the Florida High School Athletic Association state playoffs, finishing in the top 10 of their class statewide. The following year, The Dolphins were 9-1 and ranked No. 2 in the state, losing to top-ranked Pahokee High School. By 2007 however, Marathon Highs population diminished from 500-plus to 300-plus, impacting the number of football players. Against a schedule of mostly private schools that can attract players, the Dolphins have struggled in recent seasons. Marathon went 2-8 in 2013. Davis will see what his team is capable Aug. 21 when the Dolphins face off against Hillel Community Day School in an exhibition. The eventual goal, Davis said, is a return to the full South Florida Football Conference and eventually state Class 2-B district play.By WILLIAM AXFORDwaxford@keynoter.comMARATHON FOOTBALL250 lionfish are snaggedDivers pulled more than 250 lionfish from Middle Keys waters during a miniseason lobster contest that benefits a local resident. On July 30 and 31, Tildens Scuba center in Marathon hosted the twoday Lobster and Lionfish Tournament, which required divers to catch a lionfish before they qualified to enter their lobster. The divers, about 100 of them, said lobstering was fairly easy this year, Tildens owner Wendy Hall said. The lionfishing was much more difficult. The shop raised $2,500 for Cathy McKoy, undergoing treatment for bone cancer. A benefit drawing raised another $400. All proceeds from the sale of Lionfish Slammers, a PVC holding device for the spiny lionfish, also went to McKoy. All those involved loved the new [lionfish] twists in the tournament, Hall said, especially the added awareness of cleaning the reef of these pesky critters. Chase Grimes captured the 12 heaviest lobster and most lionfish for the contests grand prize. Division winners:Men: 1. Kyle Freeman (heaviest lobster and heaviest lionfish, also most Spanish and slipper lobster); 2. Cheth Plaugher (most lionfish with at least one lobster); 3. Matt Schulte (lightest lobster and lightest lionfish).Women: 1. Kensley Moore (heaviest lobster and heaviest lionfish); 2. Collin Pearce (most lionfish with at least one lobster); 3. Aly Hoyer (lightest lobster and lightest lionfish).Under Age 14: 1. Case Watson; 2. Shannon Schulte; 3. Michael Marton.Tournament raises money as a benefitDIVING Keynoter StaffCheth Plaugher of Marathon shows Tildens Scuba Center staffer Timie Seals a lionfish he captured as part of a lobster-and-lionfish tournament at Tildens during the mini-season.Dolphin action spotty at bestTalk to five different captains, and youll get five different reports on dolphin fishing. Typical for this time of year, the dolphin bite is sporadic. One guy will tell you theres not a keeper to be found, while the next will rave about the slammers he caught on top of a load of smaller keepers. It all depends on who you talk to. However, there is some consistency in the tuna bite, with plenty of blackfins in the fiveto 10pound class taken on troll. Set out early in the morning and fish deep with live baits and butterfly jigs for a chance at bigger specimens. Of course, with the tuna come the sharks, so be prepared to lose a few to the tax man. The Atlantic wrecks are still producing decent mutton snapper action along with good numbers of amberjack and jack crevalle. And the occasional smokersize kingfish has been a bonus of late. The artificial reefs and rough bottom areas in 120 to 250 feet are prime for this fishing. There have also been some respectable-size black grouper taken in these areas by those willing to put in the time and lose a bit of tackle in the effort. The yellowtail bite on the reef has been good early in the morning, late in the evening and at night, with the most productive depths at 35 to 50 feet. Some of these spots also hold a lot of twoto fourpound mangroves. These delicious snappers will take your usual yellowtail offerings, but more often prefer a small live bait such as a pinfish fished deep on a jighead. Ballyhoo have been showing up in chum slicks in the daytime, and these are excellent baits for the mangroves as well as the occasional mutton thats checking out the action close to your boat. The eight-month commercial and recreational lobster season opens today, so be cautious of all the new gear in the water as well as those diving for bugs. Depending on who you talk to, lobster mini-season last week was either phenomenal or dismal. I think its all a matter of perspective.The weeks bestCapt. Ariel Medero, of Big Game Sportfishing at the Hammocks in Marathon, concurs that the dolphin bite has been inconsistent; however, the tuna bite at the hump has been red-hot. The reef and wrecks have been very active with mangroves, yellowtails and muttons along with some huge amberjack.SeaSquareds Capt. Wayne Burri spent much of the week on the reef and wrecks, where his clients took full advantage of the great snapper bite. Loads of mangroves, some yellowtails and a good representation of muttons all came back to the dock. The White group, from Georgia and South Carolina, had a banner day with Burri with a grand total of 59 snappers caught. And Capt. Jeff Knapp continues to find tarpon at the Seven Mile Bridge. Capt. Chris Johnson is a member of the Yamaha National Fishing Team and specializes in offshore, gulf/bay, reef/wreck, sailfish, shark and tarpon fishing with SeaSquared Charters out of Porkys Bayside Marina in Marathon.

Its true, you have to learn to cope with unrelenting heat and humidity, which is here to stay until midto late October. Its best not to try to fight that and to recognize the real consequences of overheating and sunburn.If you stick around long enough, you learn not to view the climate as an obstacle but instead as an opportunity. Spend lazy days lounging in the shade with a book, or in the pool with a drink. Its really the responsible thing to do.Because heres the deal: Even though Key West is famous for its laid-back character, thats become a commodity that we sell to the tourists more than a way of life for the residents. For the people who live and work here, the price of a successful season is a stressful life in busy bars and restaurants, crowded streets, popular hotels and fully booked trips on the water. Summer is when the locals have the time and energy to come out to play or simply to do their jobs without being pushed to the limit. The bonus is that visitors who are willing to cope with the heat will have a much more pleasant time when theres no long wait for a table, or the movie theater isnt sold out. And your service is going to be a lot better. Rooms are more available and cheaper in the off-season, almost half off in some cases, especially midweek. Key West occupancies have remained high even in the summer over the past few years so you arent likely to see the kinds of fabulous bargains (less than $100 a night) that you might have a decade ago. But its still a lot more affordable, with shorter minimum stays, if any, than during season. The low rates last until Fantasy Fest in late October, then prices really go into the stratosphere during peak season, from Christmas to Easter. In the old days, lots of businesses would shut down for the summer and fall, but thats no longer true. A few businesses may take September off but for the most part, plenty is going on. The attractions are open, and its much more pleasant to tour the Ernest Hemingway Home or the Custom House museum when youre not being shuffled along in a crowd. Be sure to check out the Key West Cemetery, in the center of the island. There are brochures for self-guided tours at the sextons office, at the Margaret Street entrance. And the Historic Florida Keys Foundation offers tours for $15 a person (see box). Just remember that this is a cemetery and behave accordingly. If you really need to get out of the sun, Old Town Key West even has an indie movie house. The Tropic Cinema has four screens that show the movies that never make it to the chain cinema on North Roosevelt and also the blockbusters, after the chain cinema finishes their run. And in true indie cinema fashion, you can get a beer or glass of wine to take into the theater with you.The best way to get around the island is to rent bikes.For those who like to get out on the water, summer is great (except for sailing, when the doldrums set in). But for diving, snorkeling, kayaking, paddleboarding and lots of kinds of fishing, the calmer seas and better visibility remind many why they love Florida. Flats fishing in the backcountry, fishing the reef and going offshore are always options. But starting today, the real attraction is lobster. Even if you dont want to go to the trouble of catching them, you can get them at fish houses and grocery stores. Restaurants on the island delight in serving fresh lobster in ways that range from a classic grilled lobster tail to lobster macaroni and cheese and lobster reuben. This is reprinted from the Miami Herald.See it like a tourist as visitors slowBy NANCY KLINGENERKey Wests cemetery lies in the heart of Old Town. Cuban cigar makers, Spanish-American War veterans, soldiers and civilians, millionaires and paupers and people of all races and religions rest side by side echoing the island citys diverse heritage. The cemetery was established in 1847 following a disastrous hurricane on Oct. 11, 1846.KEY WEST Whens the last time you checked out Mallory Square at sunset? This is one of the performers.

Think beyond the sliceWatermelon is one of those foods you really dont need to overthink. Slice it. Eat it. Spit out the occasional seed. Done. Trouble is, the sweet, refreshing taste of watermelon is so appealing in summer, I tend to overbuy. And before long I find myself with two or even three massive melons rolling around (and sometimes off) my counter. Or with a refrigerator full of chunked (or when Im feeling more ambitious, balled) watermelon flesh waiting to be eaten. And no matter how delicious it is, one really can eat only so much straight up watermelon. So I thought Id share a few of my favorite alternative uses for watermelon. This isnt rocket science, but it is delicious.Ice cubesCut the watermelon flesh into chunks small enough to easily fit into your blender. Working in batches if necessary, blend the watermelon until completely smooth. Pour the liquid into ice cube trays, then freeze. These ice cubes are awesome in lemonade, ginger ale, plain or flavored seltzer water, even orange soda. And dont even get me started about gin and tonics and margaritas.LemonadeSpeaking of lemonade, this watermelon version is pretty much the best. Follow the directions above for cutting and pureeing watermelon in the blender. Puree enough so that about half of your blender container is full of liquid watermelon. Now blend in honey or superfine sugar and lemon juice (start with about a quarter of a cup of each, then adjust for your taste, making it slightly stronger than youd like).Now add enough ice to nearly fill the container, then blend until the ice is a slushie consistency. Drink, preferably through a straw. Because thats more summery.Salad with cheeseWatermelons sweet, crunchy flesh lends itself surprisingly well to salads, and I dont mean fruit salad. The trick is to pair it with foods sporting contrasting flavors and textures. Anything salty and savory is good. This simple recipe for spicy watermelon salad with feta cheese and basil is a great start, but improvise as you see fit. What you need:Four cups cubed watermelon (bite-size chunks).Quarter cup jarred banana pepper slices (or other pickled peppers).One red chili pepper.Two tablespoons lime juice.One tablespoon toasted sesame oil.Half a teaspoon sugar.Four ounces feta cheese.Quarter cup fresh basil leaves, torn.Quarter cup pine nuts, toasted. Divide the watermelon between four serving plates, then top each with a quarter of the banana pepper slices. Using a mandoline, carefully shave about a quarter of the chili pepper over each plate. Alternatively, you can finely mince the chili, then scatter the pieces over the salads. In a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice, sesame oil and sugar, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Drizzle the dressing over the salads, then top each with some of the feta, basil and pine nuts.Start to finish: Ten minutes.Servings: Four.
