Monroe County is the seventh-worst county nationwide when it comes to income inequality, according to U.S. Census Bureau data. In a report published Sept. 23, the Huffington Post, after crunching the numbers, found that Monroe has a median household income that is more than $6,000 above the state average and a population of about 76,000 people. Using whats called the Gini Index, which measures disparity between income brackets, it found Monroe scores a .5477. The scale ranges from 0 to 1. The higher the number, the more unequal things are, Sam Houston State University economics professor Mark Frank said. Frank has researched income inequality nationwide. He said the Gini Index is broad because a county could have pockets of both wealthy and poor people like the Keys do. Still, Monroe County, despite having one of the lowest unemployment rates in the state at 3.9 percent, struggles with affordable, and available, housing.United Way of the Florida Keys President Margie Smith, who will resign at the end of the year, summed up what most people know: The county is dramatically short of housing.[Our] No. 1 request is rental assistance, she said.Smith also believes that the lack of an equal playing field, including access to early childhood education and a high number of jobs without benefits, is part of the Classifieds . . . . .6B Living . . . . . . .3B Business . . . . . .5A Obituaries . . . . .2A Opinion . . . . . .4A Sports/Outdoors . .1B Crossword . . . . .4BINDEX Printed on 100% recycled newsprint CONTENTS 2014 KEYNOTER PUBLISHING CO.

There are positive feelings all the way around, Huntsman said mid-afternoon Tuesday. Everything is moving ahead. Sixty percent of the country now can go ahead with marriage equality for everyone. At press time, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi had not said whether she plans to drop the states appeal of several rulings against Floridas ban on same-sex marriage, including one stemming from Jones and Huntsmans lawsuit filed against County Clerk Amy Heavilin in April when her office denied them a marriage license. Heavilin who is not defending the marriage ban cited Floridas 2008 constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.We dont understand why [the state] is wasting time and millions of dollars in court costs that could go to feeding hungry children or helping our wounded veterans, Jones said. Any educated person can see now that [Florida law] is unconstitutional.The County Clerk of the Courts Office is ready to issue a [same-sex] marriage license immediately, upon getting written authorization from a judge that tells us were authorized to do it, said agency attorney Ron Saunders.As long as the state appeal remains in the federal system, Saunders said, the issue has not been finally resolved.We dont want our clerks or the couples to get put in some kind of legal limbo, Saunders said.

When the Keys Sanctuary Advisory Council meets Oct. 21 on Duck Key, the volunteer panel members will consider taking a position on several unsettled issues, including artificial habitat like shipwreck reefs.

A state Department of Environmental Protection inspection found more than 10 violations, including unlabeled hazardous waste and dripping chemicals, at Florida Keys Community College in Stock Island earlier this year. DEPs South District, based in Fort Myers, took up the inspection, which included two site visits in February, after an anonymous complaint was filed to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, according to DEP spokeswoman Mara Burger. In the inspection report, the DEP found that FKCC, among other violations, failed to minimize the risk of a fire, as acetone, a highly flammable chemical, dripped into a cracked pail. Open containers with unlabeled waste were mentioned throughout the report. About 2,200 pounds of used oil were also found to be mismanaged. The majority of the violations took place in and around the schools old marine engineering building, which last housed a fiberglass class in the fall 2013 semester, according to the report.The college opened a new $7 million, 30,000-squarefoot Marine Technology Building this past May.Notwithstanding the inspection, the college was already in the process of cleaning out the decades-old building in preparation to move into our new Marine Technology Building, FKCC spokeswoman Amber ErnstLeonard said via e-mail.FKCC Marine Science and Technology Director Jack Seubert, who started in July 2013, told DEP that the college initially planned to remove the waste around November 2013, but that process was delayed. Seubert also e-mailed waste removal company Safety-Kleen, which has a location in Medley in Miami-Dade County, a week before the first DEP inspection Feb. 19.Both Seubert and Douglas Pryor, the colleges purchasing and plant operations director, said the waste listed in the complaint likely was from two former employees, who both worked in the marine facility and later resigned in August and December 2013, respectively.Based on the details of the complaint, the complainant (s) would have to have extensive knowledge of FKCC operations, the report stated.The reason behind their resignations was not immediately made clear. ErnstLeonard said as policy, we do not discuss personnel matters.A current FKCC marine engineering faculty member was out sick and unavailable for comment. The college was not assessed any fines for the violations, and the last of the violations was cleared up in July, according to Burger.We cooperated fully with the DEP inspector, Ed Russell, and his co-workers, Ernst-Leonard said. They helped us clear out the building and to make sure we are in full compliance.

The victim told Deputy Tyler Blanton that Michalski gave him $300 two weeks ago for a quarter pound of pot but he didnt complete the deal, the Sheriffs Office said.He said he never delivered the marijuana to Michalski who now wanted his money back, the Sheriffs Office said. The two initially talked near the victims car and then Michalski went into the Brass Monkey for about an hour. He said Michalski then came out of the bar and confronted him again, this time hitting him through the open window of the car. Michalski is charged with the felony because his fist entered the victims vehicle during the confrontation, the Sheriffs Office said.

The Sanctuary Advisory Council doesnt have rulemaking authority but state and federal managers generally give weight to its recommendations. Keys dive operations generally support shipwreck reefs as way to attract visitors and provide an alternative to reef diving. But some marine biologists have expressed concern that the shipwreck reefs concentrate fish populations too much. That could make fish more vulnerable to harvest or affect natural behavior. There are pros and cons to artificial reefs, Weatherby said. I think it can be valuable if done in the right way. Everybody wants to make sure we dont have any more bad stuff out there. Other possible discussion at the Oct. 21 meeting at Hawks Cay Resort could include multi-agency coordination of fishing regulations, adaptive management and water-quality issues. A federal biologist will update the council on the endangered-species status recently given to several species of reef corals.

Letrick, 58, was at the helm of a 25-foot open fishing boat around 2:30 p.m. when it struck and damaged docked boats at the Stock Island Lobster Co., according to a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission report.Letrick is scheduled for arraignment Thursday in Monroe County Court on counts of boating under the influence and causing a boating accident with damage while impaired. A witness described Letrick as staggering and stumbling, FWC Officer Glen Way said in his report. While still aboard his boat, Letrick turned off his engine but had difficulty doing so, Way wrote. He staggered a bit and claimed he was not quite sure how to turn the boats motor off. Once on shore, Letrick failed physical sobriety tests and refused to give a breath or blood sample. Letrick told officers he was turning the boat toward the dock when it suddenly went forward, causing him to fall backwards and lose control of his vessel. One boat hit by Letrick, a 23-foot T-Craft, was damaged, said owner Arasay Gonzalez Rios. Information on possible damage to a second docked boat was not available.Letrick strikes two vesselsSTOCK ISLANDScott takes e-mail fight to CaliforniaAfter striking out in Florida court, Gov. Rick Scott has hired a California law firm to fight a subpoena ordering Google to release details about private email accounts believed to be used by the governor and his staff to conduct public business.California attorney John A. Hartog filed a petition in Santa Clara County court on Friday attempting to quash the release of what could be potentially embarrassing details about the use of Gmail accounts held by the governor and two of his staff.The decision to carry the fight to California came after Tallahassee Circuit Court Judge Charles A. Francis twice ordered the governor and his lawyers to stop fighting the request for basic information from Tallahassee attorney Steven R. Andrews.Andrews is seeking documents that identify the IP address of the Gmail accounts held by the governor, first lady Ann Scotts former assistant Sarah Hansford and Scotts former assistant Brad Piepenbrink. He alleges that the accounts were opened to allow staff to circumvent Floridas public records law and believes the petition filed in California is an attempt to delay the release until after the election. He is not asking for the content of the e-mails but wants information that identifies when the accounts were opened and by whom. It seems they have something to hide, Andrews said. Why would the governor spend so much money on California lawyers to stop this from getting to court? If I was a cynic, I would say theres a political motive to this. The governors office responded with a statement. Its no secret that this case, and its multiple companions, is simply Andrews seeking out revenge for his personal grudge against the Cabinet and state government, said Frank Collins, the governors communications director. For the past two years, Andrews has been aggressively seeking access to public records from the Scott administration and has forced the administration turn over records of text messages and e-mails on private accounts that it initially said did not exist.Andrews said when he issued the subpoena last week, Google told him they had been following the case and were prepared to release the information to him on Wednesday. But the move by the Scotts newly hired lawyers could effectively delay the release of the documents until after the election.In May, Andrews first asked the governors office to turn over information about the Google account, as well as a Yahoo account used by the governors office but Scotts lawyers refused. After numerous delays, including a change in lawyers, Andrews persuaded the judge in September to approve a subpoena to order Google to turn over the information.Scott acknowledged for the first time this summer that he used a private email account, but denied he used it for public business. He said Andrews was just an individual that sues the state, tries to cause problems. However, e-mails and text messages turned over to Andrews after he filed the lawsuit show that top members of the governors staff routinely used private e-mail accounts and personal cell phones to conduct public business, even though the governors office had a written policy that discouraged the use of private accounts.Despite court order, governor e-mails secretBy MARY ELLEN KLASMiami HeraldSTATE GOVERNMENTKeynoter StaffCops: Inmates conspired behind barsTwo men who met while inmates in the Plantation Key jail conspired with a woman to make a $36,000 car disappear and then put in an insurance claim reporting it stolen, says the Monroe County Sheriffs Office.Ricardo Jimenez, 48 of Cape Coral was served with a warrant in jail Monday charging him with conspiracy to commit insurance fraud.Tuesday, the cars owner, Caroline Madruga, 34, of Cape Coral was charged with the same thing as she left the Upper Keys jail after visiting Jimenez. Also charged is Amaury Medero, 40, of Miami. He wasnt in custody as of early Tuesday afternoon.Jimenez is already awaiting trial for larceny, fleeing police, habitually driving with a suspended license and resisting arrest stemming from an attempted boat theft in May in Islamorada. Medero was arrested in December, accused of fraud for allegedly accessing a computer without permission at Advanced Discount Auto Zone in Key Largo. He apparently pleaded guilty to one count in July and was released. Deputy Becky Herrin provided details of the insurance case, investigated by Sheriffs Office Detective Francisco Gaete and Detective Laura Migala with the state Division of Insurance Fraud:While in jail, Medero arranged with someone else the Sheriffs Office didnt say who to get rid of the car for Jimenez and Madruga. After he was released from the Keys jail, he picked up the car on July 22.On Aug. 28, Madruga reported the Infinity stolen to the Lee County Sheriffs Office. The following day, she filed a stolen-car claim with 21st Century Centennial Insurance Co.The car hasnt been found.

Under Florida law intended to limit how many lobster traps can be placed on the sea bottom, every trap must have a state-issued tag. The total number of trap tags is capped at about 490,000, and fishermen are allocated a set number of permits. McHenry and Conlin inspected Boggs boat about a mile north of the Content Keys, in the Gulf of Mexico near the Lower Keys. A spot-check found several of the traps aboard lacked tags. After escorting the boat back to its dock, officers did a more extensive count and found 104 traps with no tags. Another 92 traps were tagged. Boggs was charged with having untagged traps on the water, and the illegal gear was seized.LOWER KEYS MICHALSKI Keynoter Staff

The state Legislature legalized gay marriage last year, and couples continue to marry. Meanwhile, an appeal is pending of a federal court ruling that upheld Hawaiis previous ban.Illinois (June 2014).Indiana (Oct. 6, 2014). The federal appeals court in Chicago formally lifted Indianas ban Tuesday, lifting a stay that was in place while the Supreme Court considered the case.Iowa (2009).Kansas (Oct. 6, 2014). The American Civil Liberties Union says the Supreme Court decision in the 10th Circuit cases affects Kansas because its in that circuit; the group plans to seek a federal court ruling to block Kansas constitutional ban on gay marriage.

I would be in favor of doing away with the 1,500-foot rule, Zieg said.Kelly echoed that, calling it ridiculous, while Bull and Hintze said they favor revisiting the issue should it be presented to them.Cinque and Marathon Liquor and Deli owner Ralph Lucignano are being sued by the estate that formerly owned the Overseas Lounge bar and package store over denial of a liquor license there. It claims they conspired to deny the Overseas a liquor license. When it passed in 2006, I was chairman of the planning council and I voted against it, Cinque said. I thought it was too extreme. When it was passed, three small businesses the Overseas Liquor and Lounge, the Brass Money and Marathon Deli were for it. If I were asked to look at it [again], yes I would.When it comes to funding for beautification of U.S. 1, Hintze called for the city to establish a slush fund for it. Zieg and Kelly advocated entertaining the possibility of establishing a line item for it in the city budget. Cinque opposes a specific line item and said the City Council should review beautification yearly. Bull pushed for more beautification.We are heavily invested in tourism.

Feeding South Florida, which distributes food to several food banks and soup kitchens across the Keys weekly, including St. Marys Soup Kitchen in Key West, has seen an uptick in demand. We have to consider looking at another route, Feeding South Florida vice president of community relations Sari Vatske said. We can easily provide another truck, but we dont have the support for that vehicle at the moment. According to Feeding South Florida, Monroe County has the highest food cost index in South Florida, at $3.61 per meal, and almost 13 percent of its population is food insecure. The Marathon-based Coldwell Banker Schmitt Charitable Foundation, which helps Keys residents with critical needs that are not met through other means, can be seen as the exception to the rule. Between January and through September last year, it had 69 requests for help, which included housing and rental assistance. It only had 46 requests in the same period this year.Foundation Chair woman Jamie Martin said the requests are sporadic and are not even measurable by season.However, she said a slightly better economy and the application process, which could take as long as eight weeks in some cases, could explain the decline. Its hard to say, Martin said. It really just depends. Nonetheless, Monroe County is the worst in the state when it comes to income inequality according to the Gini Index.Social services stretchedFrom Equality, 1A Bug-board hopefuls square off in forumTechnology, chemicals and finances are the main issues facing the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District, candidates for the districts board said at a Monday forum at the Marathon Government Center.Running for Seat 2 (Lower Keys) are incumbent Republican Phil Goodman, Democratic Realtor Roger Cousineau and Lynda Schuh (no party affiliation). Running for Seat 5 (Key Largo) are Republican certified public accountant Thomas McDonald and Democratic veterinarian Geoff Bailey. The most effective method for eliminating mosquitoes was central to the forum. Bailey advocates the use of genetically modified mosquitoes to fight dengue-carrying mosquitoes, saying they do not bite or contract disease. Goodman pointed to Mosquito Controls use of larviciding as the most effective way to battle bugs. McDonald said drones that search for pools of standing water in outlying areas should be a part of the arsenal.For Cousineau, focusing on employees rather than technology should be the focus of Mosquito Control. Its also important to remember mosquito control is a labor-intensive business, Cousineau said. The people who work for Mosquito Control are hard working and have a lot of ingenious ideas. To have technology that would diminish those jobs is wrong on many levels.Schuh opposes the use of chemicals and genetically modified mosquitoes. Instead, Schuh would like to see more investments made into vaccinations, building up peoples resistance to disease and mosquito bites; and education.Pesticides are the last resort, Schuh said. I think somewhere down the road well have something like the polio vaccine. Thats the type of technology that would excite me, that would take away the whole issue of mosquito-borne disease. There was also disagreement about reaching into budget reserves for things such as a new Mosquito Control building on Big Coppitt Key to replace the current Stock Island headquarters. Cousineau advocates holding onto reserves and increasing property taxes. Schuh alluded to crafting a budget as an imperfect science, where commissioners would have to take their best guess at numbers and deal with it for a year. Bailey sees no issue with using reserves. Goodman has voiced support for Mosquito Control to possibly borrow money if more funding is needed to construct a building. I worked with the board 17 years ago and helped build reserves, McDonald said. This is why we have them. [Reserves are] not being raided, theyre being used for the purpose theyve been established for.

He stayed his decision allowing Huntsman and Jones to marry, expecting appeals. His decision was upheld on appeal, but U.S. District Judge Robert L. Hinkle also put a stay on issuing samesex marriage licenses until the U.S. Supreme Court decided whether it would hear arguments. Monday, the Supreme Court said it would not hear any of the pending appeals on marriage equality. Gov. Rick Scott and Bondi have said previously that they would continue to defend the state law until the Supreme Court decides if it would settle the debate.On Monday, Bondi said in a statement to the Miami Herald that were going to be reviewing everything in Florida to see what to do next ... but this is a tremendous win for the plaintiffs in this case.In Key West, Jones and Huntsman have completed a mandatory pre-marriage workshop, and have ministers standing by to perform their ceremony.

It is no surprise that a small company with few staff and limited investment in equipment locally would charge less than our hospital for some limited diagnostic testing.But Fishermens does offer ways for patients to significantly reduce costs when they pay at the time of service, and we make special accommodations for those without health insurance. More broadly, Fishermens pricing for all types of hospitalizations is very competitive compared to other Monroe County hospitals. You can check out the costs of care on the www.floridahealthfinder.gov website, and also see that Fishermens prices for outpatient surgery are extremely competitive among Monroe Of course, patients can decide where to have a particular diagnostic test performed based solely on cost, but often they consider other factors, as well. When they are in severe pain and dont know why, or are seriously sick or injured, they want more than just the lowest cost. They know that a full-service hospital with advanced diagnostics and technologies, a fully staffed emergency department, specialist physicians, nurses and technicians at the ready is their best health-care choice. Its clear. There is simply no alternative to the value a hospital brings to its community. Its also clear that operating a hospital 24 hours a day every day of the year is expensive.Fishermens balances access to health-care services with our community needs, with the resources to pay for them. This has always been difficult and more so today as health-care costs for everyone are headed up. For those with health insurance, co-pays and deductibles are increasing rapidly and contribute to growing out-of-pocket costs. For hospitals, especially smaller facilities like Fishermens, ever-expanding government regulations, new costs associated with implementation of the federal governments health reform and accelerating funding cuts to Medicare and Medicaid squeeze finances.Fishermens delivers quality and value to the entire community. We do that not just in medical services, but as an economic force, as well. Nearly 40,000 times last year, we were entrusted to provide caring services for our community at the hospital and our network of physician offices and outpatient clinics. Fishermens annually adds $13 million, through salaries and benefits to more than 200 local employees, to the Middle Keys economy. And we provided more than $6.3 million in uncompensated (free) care to those who cant afford to pay. Access to local medical services is a requirement for many part-year residents, tourists and those with special medical needs. Without a local hospital, they would seek other destinations that do have medical services, and our local economy would suffer. As it has for more than 50 years, Fishermens Community Hospital will continue to deliver high-quality healthcare services locally. Some things in life are worth the cost, and a community hospital that brings true value to our community is one of them.

For five days, with a group of Americans that included marine scientists under the auspices of the Latin America Working Group of Washington, D.C., we experienced the hospitality and warmth of the Cuban people as we celebrated our grandfather and had discussions on promoting U.S.-Cuba cooperation to protect the marlin, tuna and other game fish of the Florida Straits that are such an important part of the image that Hemingways generations of readers have had and continue to have of the man and of his work.Of the two anniversaries, the first was a celebration of Ernests arrival in Cuba 80 years ago aboard his beloved fishing boat, the Pilar, after a trip across the Gulf Stream from Key West to Havana. The other anniversary is of our grandfathers 1954 Nobel Prize in literature.He later donated the gold medal to the people of Cuba, saying, This award belongs to Cuba, because my works were created and conceived in Cuba, in my village of Cojimar, of which I am a citizen. On our first day, we traveled by boat to Cojimar harbor, cruising down the coast in fishing boats similar to the Pilar from the Hemingway Marina near Havana. More than 100 people greeted and embraced us that morning in an outpouring of love and respect that made us realize just how deeply Ernest felt about being a citizen of Cojimar. We talked with fishermen in their 80s who had known Ernest when they were boys, and we hugged and posed for photos with groups of school children. We had lunch at his favorite restaurant, La Terraza, sitting at his favorite table and looking at many photographs of him on the wall.A few days later, we helped celebrate the 60th anniversary of our grandfathers Nobel Prize in literature, given to him in large part for his enduring tale of a Cuban fishermans struggle to capture a giant marlin with just bait and tackle and a tiny skiff, and of his eventual defeat.The Old Man and the Sea is a classic of American literature, and we were afforded the rare honor and privilege of seeing and holding the actual Nobel medal, which our Cuban hosts graciously brought to the Finca Vigia from its usual repository at the sanctuary of La Virgen de la Caridad del Cobre outside Santiago de Cuba. Touring our grandfathers house and lingering over the photographs, books and other personal items collected over a lifetime which included living in Cuba for more than 20 years we could easily see just how much he truly was a citizen of this island.In addition to being an avid sports fisherman, our grandfather was a devoted naturalist who kept meticulous records of the marlin, tuna and other varieties for which he fished in the Gulf. In the summer of 1934 he joined forces with the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia to learn more about these highly migratory species, and the specimens and records he collected and kept now exist as the Hemingway Archive at the museum in Philadelphia.Our grandfather acquired this visceral need to explore and understand nature from his father, Dr. Clarence Hemingway, on fishing trips they took into the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in the early 1900s. In turn, this passion was passed down to our grandfathers sons and, finally, from our father to his children. This love and respect for the natural world and all its resources is a family legacy, one that we would like to see manifested in U.S.-Cuba cooperation to protect the resources of the Florida Straits, despite restrictions on trade, travel and scientific cooperation against Cuba in place since 1961. By protecting those ocean resources that are vitally important to the tourism and sport fishing economies of both South Florida and Cuba, we hope to honor our grandfathers passion for cataloguing and understanding the natural world. We find it hard to believe that someday the giant tuna and marlin that were the inspiration for so much of his art and life might no longer be found in the Florida Straits, but we know that this danger exists. The twin pressures of pollution and over-fishing are real. We hope that our journey to Cuba will begin to address these problems and restore balance to an important and delicate ecosystem that is of vital importance to both the American and Cuban people. We also hope that the cooperative nature of our trip will help demonstrate that better relations between the United States and Cuba are possible and desirable. Its time to move beyond more than 50 years of antagonism to normalized relations.

They wound up killing each other. Which brings us to the race for governor of Florida. Unlike the match-up in the Everglades, there will be a winner in Novembers election: Either Gov. Rick Scott will emerge victorious or former Gov. Charlie Crist will defeat him. It wont be as deadly as the battle in the swamp, but it will be just as ugly. Already, the people of this state are shaping up to be the ultimate losers. A recent Quinnipiac poll of 991 likely voters shows the Republican incumbent, Scott, with 44 percent support; his Democratic challenger, Crist, with 42 percent; and Libertarian Adrian Wyllie at 8 percent. Factor in the 6 percent who were undecided, the 17 percent who said they still might change their minds and the margin of error of 3.1 percentage points, and the two main combatants are in a dead heat. Unfortunately, the one thing that unites the Ds, the Rs and the undecideds is their distrust of both Scott and Crist. What a dismal way to enter office.The contest, as seen in TV ads repeated ad nauseam, has all the intellectual appeal of a swamp fight between beasts of the lower orders. And Floridas voters are disgusted. At the same time, and its baffling, they are falling prey to the very ads spiteful, hostile so many of them decry.Its pointless to yearn for the days when such ads didnt dominate political campaigns. That ship sailed decades ago. But surely candidates can do better than the Did so! Did not! tone of the current race for governor. Friend of swindler Scott Rothstein! screams one of Scotts broadsides against Crist. Liar, liar, cant even vouch for your own signature on a piece of paper! Crist replies in his attack ad on Scott. But its a winning strategy, unfortunately. Why bother to address the issues that matter most to the people Scott and Crist want to lead? There is no dearth of them, almost all having a direct impact on the quality life in this state: Are public schools doing better by our children? Whats the best way to insure those without health insurance? Are residents paying too much/not enough for windstorm insurance? What about combating climate change? Florida is poised to be swamped. A new Census Bureau report found that the poverty level in Florida is 17 percent, and the median income is 40th in the nation, worse than when Scott took over. Also, the report says that 20 percent of Floridians dont have health insurance. Have a defense, Scott? Whats your solution, Crist? And how do they plan to rebuild the trust voters have lost? Its not a state problem, its a nationwide pity. In Florida, Scotts Office of Transparency has existed in name only, given his secret hunting trips and hiding the publics business using personal e-mail accounts. For Crists part, his shift from Republican to independent to true-blue Democrat still looks to many like the politics of expedience rather than a deep and abiding evolution. These are the real issues that the candidates arent addressing. Slinging mud is far easier and so is, to their shame, splattering the voters while they wrestle in the swamp.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.St. Lucie County Clerk Joe Smith, president of the Florida Court Clerks & Comptrollers, said his group wants to shine a light on the impact of domestic violence, adding that one in four American women and one in seven men suffers physical violence at the hands of a loved one.Clerks can help, he said. Floridas clerks are here for victims of domestic violence.Smith urged state residents to no longer remain silent upon experiencing, witnessing or hearing about incidents of domestic violence.The clerks action came as domestic violence is all over the news, given its role in recent coverage of the National Football League. The spark was a video of former Baltimore Ravens star Ray Rice knocking out his then-fiance and now wife in an Atlantic City elevator.Tiffany Carr, executive director of the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence the Monroe County Domestic Abuse Shelters primary funder told the Florida Cabinet last month that national attention to the crime has driven up the demand on local shelters. Its for unfortunate reasons, but a record number of survivors have reached out for help, asking for emergency shelter, Carr said. Our shelters are over capacity. Theres cots, theres cribs in the hallways. Floridas 42 domestic-violence shelters had already seen the demand for their services spike during the recession just as foundations, donors and government programs were cutting back their financial support. According to the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence, more than 108,000 domestic-violence crimes were reported to state law enforcement last year.Help available for victims of domestic abuseBy MARGIE MENZELNews Service of FloridaDOMESTIC VIOLENCEFix coming for foster kidsThe director of the Florida Agency for Persons with Disabilities said her agency will be able to provide services for severely disabled young adults in extended foster care under a legislative fix now in the works.Agency Director Barbara Palmer said she and state Sen. Nancy Detert (RVenice) have agreed on a tweak to a 2013 law that extends the option of staying in foster care to age 22 for people with disabilities. Ive talked with the governors office, and theyre very supportive of us getting this fixed, Palmer said. They dont want two agencies at odds with each other over children.Before the law, which went into effect on Jan. 1, severely disabled foster kids turning 18 would be eligible for what is known as APDs Medicaid homeand community-based services waiver on an emergency basis. The kids legal representatives could cite impending homelessness as an emergency.But since the law passed, youths have had the option of staying in extended foster care until age 21 or age 22 for those with disabilities. So its been unclear which services for disabled young adults in the foster-care system would be covered under the APD waiver and which by the privatized community-based care agencies, which get their funding through the Department of Children and Families. Research shows that children in foster care have a much higher rate of disabilities than the general population and are 40 to 60 percent more likely to become homeless. We want them to stay in foster care if thats in their best interest, Palmer said this week. But we also want them to be taken care of financially. So were going to recommend that that be paid for out of APD. Last week Palmer met with Detert. What I told [Palmer] is some of our local [service providers], they might get a handicapped kid that costs them $50,000 a year for that one kid, Detert said. And maybe they only deal with 80 kids, and theyd have to lay off staff to deal with their budget. [Palmer] agrees, and shes willing to work it out.Law brings up some confusionBy MARGIE MENZELNews Service of FloridaSOCIAL SERVICES
Review: Pay by phone or plastic?PayPal, Apple and others are betting on billions in mobile payments.But so far, trying to use my phone to pay at restaurants and retailers has been frustrating. Its easier just to pull out my plastic credit card than to figure out which card works with which app and which app works with which store.In theory, mobile-payment services such as Google Wallet are easy to use. You simply download an app and enter your card information. With Apple Pay, you can even snap a picture of the card or use the one you already use with Apples iTunes. Then, when youre ready to pay, you typically hold your phone near the stores payment terminal. The transaction is authorized through a special wireless chip embedded in many Android phones and in the case of Apple Pay the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. PayPal and Square use a different method, but the idea is the same. Theres no need to look for the right card in your wallet or purse. In practice, the process isnt so smooth. I have several payment apps taking up space on my phone. I open them only when I need a reminder of why they are so frustrating. After all, whipping out a credit or debit card isnt so time-consuming, though it is a pain when I lose a card or leave it at home. It would be nice not to have to carry them around.So what do PayPal, Apple, Google and others need to do to get me to leave my wallet at home? Get more stores and restaurants to install the equipment to let me pay by phone.I once considered spending a week trying to pay for all my meals with my phone. Id starve. I could get a burger at McDonalds or a reheated hot dog at the convenience store. Mom-and-pop shops typically dont have the right equipment. Its convenient to have these apps on my phone only if I have somewhere to use them.With the launch of Apple Pay this month, several retail chains plan to start accepting such payments or expand the ability to do so. Having millions of iPhones capable of making such transactions will give smaller merchants an incentive to upgrade their equipment, too.And sandwich chain Subway said that its now upgraded all of its locations with mobile pay service Softcard, a joint venture of AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless. If more merchants really start supporting mobile pay, then I might feel comfortable leaving my cards at home.But... Figure out how to make every card work.Not universalMost places take Visa and MasterCard, and many take American Express, too. Not so with mobile services. Where you can shop depends on which card you have. If you plan to use Softcard to buy a sandwich at Subway, you better have an Amex or a bank card issued by Chase or Wells Fargo. Otherwise, you need to get a prepaid account through American Express and keep filling it with cash. Apple Pay will face a similar challenge, though it already has deals in place with most major banks, including all three of mine.PayPal seems to be the winner so far, as it works with just about any card, as well as direct withdrawals from your checking or savings account. I was excited when PayPals app told me I could use it at an Indian restaurant I frequent for lunch.Except... Even when you think you can pay by phone, sometimes you cant.That Indian restaurant didnt know what I was talking about when I pulled out the phone to pay. Turned out that feature was limited to ordering takeout and delivery through a third-party ordering service.I briefly tried a payment system called LevelUp because it offered discounts for frequent visits. But when I returned to a pita place where I was racking up discount points, I learned the restaurant had dismantled LevelUp because few people were using it. So long to my points. Likewise, 7-Eleven has been phasing out support for existing mobile payment services while it partners on developing its own system. OK. Lets say its a perfect world and every card works everywhere. There will still be challenges: Typing in a PIN code takes time. Once again, its easier just to pull out plastic, especially as many transactions dont even require signatures. The fingerprint ID sensors in iPhones and Samsungs Galaxy phones will help. Im more willing to tap a finger on a home button. People will need to be comfortable with digitally storing multiple credit card numbers and flashing them all around town. The truth is, these apps are often more secure than plastic cards and their decadesold magnetic technology. Apple Pay, for instance, doesnt actually store your credit card number, but rather a substitute one that works only with that phone. If a merchants network gets hacked, as seen with recent breaches at Target and Home Depot, the hacker would need to have physical possession of your phone to use that substitute number. And if you lose your device, no one can take it on a shopping spree because it wont work without your PIN code or fingerprint ID. You can easily disable your payments account remotely, too.Then again, many customers like me arent that afraid of hacks. Banks typically offer zero-liability protection, so you owe nothing for fraudulent charges, even if you do something stupid like leave your card at a bar overnight.So until I dont have to wonder when I run out for dinner or hop in a cab if my card is going to be accepted, Ill likely keep paying with plastic.For some, tech too much effort, cards work bestBy ANICK JESDANUNAssociated Press Wednesday, October 8, 2014 5A Keynoter KeysInfoNet.com NOTICE OF REFERENDUMPUBLIC NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT PURSUANT TO RESOLUTION 14-08-56, ADOPTED BY THE VILLAGE COUNCIL OF ISLAMORADA, VILLAGE OF ISLANDS, FLORIDA (THE VILLAGE) THE FOLLOWING CHARTER AMENDMENT PROPOSAL SHALL BE SUBMITTED TO THE QUALIFIED ELECTORS OF THE VILLAGE ON THE NOVEMBER 4, 2014 BALLOT.MAXIMUM FLOOR AREA OF STRUCTURESA Charter Amendment is proposed that would limit the maximum floor area of any structure within the Village, other than those for public and semi-public uses, to no more than 10,000 square feet of floor area within the perimeter of the exterior walls of the structure as measured from the outside surface of the exterior walls.

Thatll help your season average, deadpanned head coach Ed Holly. The Canes (5-1) started rotating reserves into the game midway through the second quarter, and gave everyone on the roster playing time in a second half played under a running clock.The Hurricanes dominated against Curleys winless Knights, but expect a far more tenacious foe Friday in Pine Crest School (3-3) of Fort Lauderdale. Game time at George M. Barley Jr. Stadium is 7:30 p.m. Pine Crests Panthers suffered an 0-3 start with several starters sidelined by preseason injuries. Since most of the hurt players returned three weeks ago, Pine Crest is on a 3-0 roll in Southeastern Football Conference play and the games were not close. The Panthers averaged 36 points per game over the three-week span, while holding their opponents to an average of 10 points. Pine Crest will run at you, run again, then run some more, Holly said. Its a big, strong, physical team. Weve got our work cut out for us. That will be a far cry from last Friday when the Hurricanes scored a touchdown on all five offensive possessions in the first half. Coral Shores scored on its first play from scrimmage when Jacobsen went 59 yards around the right end. His blockers did their jobs and his speed did the rest.The Canes needed just three plays to go 45 yards on their second drive, Jacobsen going left for a 39-yard score. With barely four minutes off the game clock, Coral Shores held a 14-0 lead.Junior quarterback Nick Frisone led the way on the Canes third drive, carrying Curley defenders on a 24yard run up the middle. Frisone threw a 13-yard pass to sophomore Josh Holper, and finished the march with a 6-yard touchdown run. Fullback Eddie Dunn carried twice for l6 yards on the 58-yard drive. Hurricane defensive linemen recovered a Knight fumble at midfield to start a 48-yard push. Jacobsen escaped on a 40-yard run before Dunns 8-yard rush set up Jacobsens 1-yard score for a 28-0 lead. With 6:36 before halftime, Cane sophomore quarterback Eddie Evans lofted a 27-yard pass to wideout Paul Pauchey, who caught the ball in stride as he crossed the goal line. The one-play drive started when Dunn at middle linebacker blasted a Knight receiver as the ball arrived.

Even without some of their regulars, the pinkshirted Sabres were dominant, although the Conchs fought hard in the first two games before falling apart in the third. The first game was 1111 before St. Brendan (115) went on an 11-4 run to lead 22-15.Two points by Natalie Hepworth and a kill by Sarah Pike, who had two service aces earlier, brought the Conchs to within three points at 22-19. But the Sabres ran off three points in a row, the last on a spike by outside hitter Carmina Delfino. It was the last of seven Sabre kills in the game.Game two saw a big comeback by Key West, which was down, 16-7. The comeback, aided by Sabre errors, was sparked by Pike (one of her points came on a quick back-handed flip), Samantha Golden and Keely Butler. The St. Brendan led was down to 22-21 after a Sabre shot sailed long. But thats as close as the Conchs got. After a block by 6-foot-1 Cristina Torres, a tip shot by Genesis Cabanzon and two Conch errors, the Sabres had a 25-20 victory. Eager to get home to Miami, the Sabres went out to a 16-4 lead in the third game as the Conchs failed at returning serves. Nicole Hernandez, a force at 5-11, then scored five of her teams last nine points, three of left-handed tips. Nina Garcia served out the last two points, the 25th an ace that hit the top of the net and fell to the sun-flooded floor.Sabres sweep Key West FridayBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST VOLLEYBALL Photo by BERT BUDDEAs St. Brendan defenders go up for a block, Key Wests Natalie Hepworth tries a kill shot near teammates Brooke Stanyer, Sarah Pike and Shelby Watcher.See Hurricanes, 2BConchs boys place firstWith an average time of 18 minutes, 30 seconds, the Key West High boys crosscountry team finished first in the small-schools division of the 29-team Flrunners.com Invitational Friday at Chain of Rocks Park in Titusville. Patrick McNamara of Admiral Farragut Academy in St. Petersburg won the race in 16:52. The Conchs were led by senior Everett Wagner, who was fifth among 230 runners in the 5K (3.1 miles) in 17:25. Florida Runners is one of the biggest meets of the year, and this is the first time weve won it, said Key West coach Terence White. The next four Conchs were Leif Cisneros, who was 12th in a personal-best 18:11; Jerry Burgess (18:28); Bobby Black (19:12); and Matt Diaz (19:16). We figured going in that four teams could win and that our fourth and fifth runners needed to step up for us to win and they did, White said.The Key West girls finished 12th in a 25-team field and were led by Lexy Wilson, who was 29th in a personalbest 22:25. She ran 24:12 at her last meet, so she made an improvement almost unheard of, White said.Jane Welzien was next for the Conchs, finishing 54th in 23:29. After her came Catherine Richardson (23:47), Olivia Kennedy (25:03) and Brinn Davis (25:37). Kennedys and Davis times were personal bests and Richardsons was her season best.

The Fins won in four games, losing the first one 1825 and winning the remaining three 25-15, 25-21 and 25-18.Its one of those matches that coaches call an ugly win, Freeman said. We didnt do anything really well. The other team played better. Our hitters werent finding any rhythm, passes were off. We cant win if we dont play better against other teams. Still, key players came through. Jordan Roney had five aces, 13 assists and six kills. Sidney Konrath had two aces, seven assists and nine kills. Chavely Aldama had eight aces and 10 digs.Freeman couldnt pinpoint why the Dolphins (10-3) didnt dominate Westwood, especially after sweeping them earlier in the season.We didnt really do anything well, he said. We have had some good practices since then, so hopefully well get back to the way we were and winning.A scheduled Tuesday match against Pinecrest Prepatory Academy was postponed; it might be played today.With the district tournament two weeks away, Freeman said the girls have to play better if we want to make it far in the postseason. The Dolphins face state champions Palmer Trinity Thursday, who could be their opponent in tournament. We have to block, we have to hit, Freeman said when asked if Marathon can come out on top against Palmer Trinity. We have to block and be in the right positions. Trinity plays year round; when volleyball seasons over, theyre still practicing and playing. Thursdays home match starts at 6:30 p.m.Palmer Trinity comes calling this ThursdayBy WILLIAM AXFORDwaxford@keynoter.comMARATHON VOLLEYBALLDolphin back bitingHopefully you have the opportunity to get out and partake in the fall dolphin run.The dolphin bite is very good anywhere from 10 to 25 miles offshore. Weed lines are producing the most consistent action, with loads of fish of all sizes from sublegal to slammers. There are good numbers of tripletail on the weed patches, too. They take a wide variety of baits, including chunks of ballyhoo and live pinfish. The key to catching tripletail is to get the bait as close as possible to the fishs nose so it gets a shot before the jacks snatch the bait away. The humps are loaded up with blackfin and skipjack tuna, along with copious numbers of sharks, unfortunately. If youre after a sushi dinner, take lots of hooks or lures because the sharks are sure to tax you heavily. On the wrecks and rough bottom areas, the mutton snapper are a tad spotty, but there are abundant jack crevalle and amberjack to fill the void. And the kingfish are beginning to stack up, so get your smokers ready. Yellowtail snappers in the 14to 16-inch range are chomping away in 50 to 60 feet of water on the reef.

es of ballyhoo in the same areas by catching a few and dropping them to the bottom to catch muttons and very large mangroves. Those same ballyhoo fished live on the surface will attract the attention of nice size cero mackerel as well as kingfish in the eightto 10-pound class. Fishing on the grass banks and nearshore wrecks in the bay yields excellent catches of oneto twopound mangrove snapper. There are short cobia and grouper out there, too, and theyll grow to be big enough to keep as we move deeper into fall fishing.The weeks bestCapt. Ariel Medero, of Big Game Sportfishing in Marathon, reports a red-hot dolphin bite 10 to 25 miles offshore, along with tunas at the humps, but the sharks are really bad. On the reef, the yellowtail bite is active with some nice fish and the mangroves are in the shallower areas. The gulf is active with mangroves, sharks and a few grouper. The SeaSquared crews had very good offshore trips back to back, with dolphin, tuna and tripletail coming back to the docks. On the reef, the guys caught mangrove, yellowtail and mutton snappers, jack crevalle for fun, yellowjack and a bonus wahoo for the Dugans from Indiana. And the Naspinski family, from North Carolina, had a blast doing dinner and a show Keys style, catching and releasing sharks and bringing in a pile of mangrove and yellowtail snappers. Capt.

According to the FHSAA, the panel focuses on issues facing student-athletes, rules and regulations. We get these issues because theyre right in front of us when we play, Konrath said. FHSSA is looking for student opinions. She wants to look at athlete recruitment among schools. A 2012 state law broadened a schools ability to recruit student athletes, lifting the FHSAAs year-long ineligibility period for student athletes who move to a new school after the first 20 days of a new school year, according to www.Max prepsports.com Small schools such as Marathon have felt the effects, with top student athletes recruited by bigger schools It makes it unfair for schools who do not recruit students, Konrath said. Marathon High School volleyball coach Kevin Freeman sees Konrath as a perfect fit for the committee. Shes a good leader on court and off the court, Freeman said. She has the qualities you want in a teammate and in a person. Shes always working harder than she did the day before.Students named to the advisory committee must be in good academic standing and active in his or her schools National Honor Society.Being involved with the FHSAA is family affair for Konrath; her older sister Taylor, who graduated in June and is studying at Duke University, served on the committee, too.

Microsoft is trying to soften an unpopular redesign of Windows by reviving features from older versions while still attempting to nudge desktop users into a world of touch screens and mobile devices.The company on Sept. 30 gave an early preview of the new Windows 10 software, which it aims to begin selling by the middle of next year. Although the current version is called Windows 8, Microsoft says its skipping ahead to Windows 10 to emphasize its effort to move forward.Windows 10 represents the first step in a whole new generation of Windows, said Terry Myerson, executive vice president of Microsofts operating systems group. Windows 8 was introduced two years ago as an answer to the growing demand for mobile devices. But many users hated it because its tablet-like design and controls werent a good fit for many devices using keyboards and mice. Sales of personal computers continued to fall.With Windows 10, Microsoft is trying to regain the loyalty of longtime PC users, while reaching out toconsumers and businesses that are increasingly adopting touch-screen smartphones and tablets. Analysts consider the success of the new Windows crucial for Microsoft and new Chief Executive Officer Satya Nadella, who must show that Microsoft can embrace mobile devices without sacrificing the traditional computing experience.The new system will be a blend of the old and the new. For instance, it will have various controls that are familiar to users of older Windows systems, such as a start menu to quickly access apps. But this start button will also open a series of tiles that resemble whats found in Windows 8.Analysts said that more gradual transition is important if Microsoft wants to persuade users to upgrade.This is what Windows 8 should have been, said Carolina Milanesi, a veteran tech analyst at the research firm Kantar Worldpanel. Here they are doing the right thing.Microsoft executives stressed repeatedly that using the next version of Windows wont be a challenge for businesses or consumers who have continued to use Windows 7 or even earlier versions. The new software seeks to offer the familiarity of Windows 7 with some of the benefits that exist in Windows 8, said Joe Belfiore, a Microsoft executive who oversees Windows design and evolution.FamiliarityHe compared it to buying a new car with a more powerful engine and a better audio system without having to learn a new way to drive.Windows 10, for instance, will suggest new ways to use or navigate through files, without forcing users to abandon the old way, Belfiore said.Were designing the experience so that as you use it, the things you already know are familiar and present, but new value is presented to you at a rate thats easier for you to ingest, he said. The effort drew tentative praise from several industry experts. They desperately needed to find a way to bridge that experience. I just wish theyd done that with Windows 8, said Rob Enderle, a tech analyst with the Enderle Group. Milanesi said that while many businesses resisted upgrading to Windows 8, they cant avoid touch screens as younger workers are accustomed to using phones or tablets as their primary computing device. Windows 10 will also be designed to work on a wider range of computing devices.Microsoft currently has three main systems Windows 8 for traditional computers and tablets, Windows Phone 8 for cellphones and Xbox for its gaming console. By unifying the underlying systems in Windows 10, software developers will be able to create apps for the various devices more easily. Consumers will also be able to switch devices more easily and avoid having to buy the same apps multiple times.That doesnt mean the apps will always look the same. Developers will still be able to adapt apps for the various screen sizes, but wont have to start from the beginning for each version. User interfaces on the various devices may also differ, even as they share underlying technologies. Wednesday, October 8, 2014 3B Keynoter KeysInfoNet.com Theyre almost here!! Unincorporated Monroe Countys Lower Keys franchise hauler Waste Management of Florida Keys, anticipates distributing 11,000 wheeled, blue, 65-gallon recycling carts (with attached lids) to residents by October 1, 2014. The wheeled carts can hold three times as much recycling as the 18 gallon bins currently distributed by Waste Management, and will still be emptied once a week by the hauler, on your current recycling day. Gone are the days when you had to use a cardboard box as a recycling bin after your holiday parties. Communities using the wheeled carts have increased participation and volume by an average of 30%. This is a win-win for everyone, said Roman Gastesi, County Administrator. Becoming a greener community is not only good for the environment, but it also helps us further our commitment to manage costs by recycling more and sending less recyclable materials to the Waste to Energy Plant. Further, there will be no additional cost to our residents.HOW WILL THE 65-GALLON CARTS BE DISTRIBUTED?Residents will receive home delivery, and they can start using the carts immediately,said Greg Sullivan, Sr. District Manager, Waste Management of Florida Keys. Also, residents will have the option of returning the old 18 gallon bins to Waste Managementor keeping them to put additional recyclables out.WHAT GOES IN THE CART?A graphic on the lid will serve as a guide as to what can and cannot be placed in the cart. As avid recyclers may remember, in 2009 Monroe County implemented Single Stream Recycling. This means that all recyclables are mixed together in the same cart including: plastics 1-7 (including emptied plastic milk and juice jugs, detergent and fabric softener containers), metal and aluminum cans, newspapers and inserts, junk mail, magazines, catalogs, soft cover telephone books, brown paper bags, corrugated cardboard, cereal boxes, office paper, file folders, emptied milk and juice cartons, clean glass bottles and jars.WHAT IF SOMEONE TAKES MY CART?Each cart is equipped with its unique serial number. Waste Management suggests that each recipient of a cart, as a precaution, write down the serial number in a safe place in case their cart is lost or placed at another residence in error. If your cart is lost you will be able to call Waste Management, give them the serial number and they will be able to retrieve the cart, and return it to its rightful owner. County Rolls Out New Recycling Carts in the Lower Keys Customers are asked to call Waste Management at (305) 296-2825 or Monroe County at (305) 745-4307, if they have any questions or need more information.

Exceptional Properties... Exceptional Service! Leslie Leopold, 305.942.0215 Cheri Tindall, 305.664.7661 When palm trees rebelMost plant lovers are knowledgeable about palm habit. It is uniform a trunk with one crown of green, folded leaves and flowers borne below or within the crown. This most common growth habit gives the best support, with the greatest chance of survival for a majority of palm species. Just like the real world, certain palms follow the rules scrupulously, and others see how far they can bend them.The palm species that follow this protocol explicitly are the teachers pets; they follow all directions unconditionally. So many palms fall under this category of straight-A student: Royal, coconut and Christmas palms.The Montgomery palm (Veitchia montgomeryana) is a wonderful grower, despite its lack of creativity and willingness to follow rules blindly. It will grow quickly (for a palm) when planted in full sun with lots of water.However, there are just as many palms that follow a different creed: Rules are meant to be broken. While following the rules is usually a necessity, some palms love to break them. Lets plant these rebellious palms for the rebel in us all. The easiest derivation from the rule is a manystemmed trunk. These palms still make the highest marks but dont quite walk the line. They get to class just as the tardy bell rings. Saw palmetto, Macarthur and lady palms are rules benders. Ptychosperma schefferi, a close relative of the Macarthur palm, hasnt decided how closely it wants to follow the rule books. Its trunk can be either solitary or multi-stemmed. Although indecisive in its habit, it is consistently a good choice for southern Florida, growing well in our alkaline soils with high cold tolerance. Some of the biggest rule breakers are the Hyphaene palms (Hyphaene sp.). They stray from the first palm rule: One crown per head. These palms branch at the growth bud creating two equally sized crowns. While this architecture should be unstable, Hyphaenepalms dominate the desert. If you are going to plant a Hyphaene, keep it high, dry and in the sun. The mazari palm (Nannorhops ritchiana) takes a page from Hyphaenes playbook and branches aerially as well. However, the mazari takes it one step further. One crown is vegetative, producing leaves only, while the other produces flowers and dies. The vegetative crown splits again and the pattern continues. Mazari palms are not as readily available but are incredibly hardy. Flame throwerThe flame thrower palm (Chambeyronia macrocarpa) isnt an outright rebel, preferring merely to push the limits. She dyes her hair and the result is magnificent. Instead of having a typical green crown, the newest leaf is bright red. Unlike the Hyphaene and mazari palms, the flame thrower palm can be found in most nurseries. This palm can grow in full sun or partial shade. Simply plant it in a moist but welldrained area and watch for that defiant red leaf. The previous palms play it safe and reproduce many times to ensure future generations. The Corypha palm (Corypha sp.) is a gambler. The Coryphapalms do not hedge their bets they go all in. They produce a copious amount of flowers one time above their crown of leaves and then die. In their one reproductive event they can produce millions of flowers and thousands of seeds. In the wild these palms grow along waterways and floodplains in grasslands. They have low nutrient requirements and do well in our Florida soils. Plant them in full sun and moist soil.The shiftiest of the bunch is the nonconformist who breaks rules right under your nose. Their growth habit is defiant, yet so sneaky we dont even realize. The title of slyest rule breaker belongs to our own Florida native, the dwarf palmetto (Sabal minor).At first glance, this palm appears to be little and seemingly insignificant. While its close relative Sabal palmetto grows a tall trunk, the dwarf palmetto counters and keeps its stem underground. Dont let its short stature fool you; it has a full-grown stem that is simply buried underground. Plant this palm in full sun, with dry soil and a large area for the underground stem to grow. Palms that exhibit strange growth live in areas not conducive to typical palm growth. Underground stems protect a delicate trunk from fire, and clumping is advantageous in wetlands. Their seemingly rebellious growth habits make them stronger. These variations of the typical palm decorum also make them hardier ornamentals. Any of these palms would be a beautiful (and rebellious) addition to your backyard. Sara Edelman is the palm and cycad manager at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in Coral Gables.

When it comes to sweets, I have a surprising trick up my sleeve. And the best part about it? It probably wont cost you a penny because most likely you already have it, but throw it in the trash.Im talking about orange zest, the thin outer skin of an orange. I dont mean the white part, called the pith. Thats bitter. The zest is just the paper-thin layer of colored skin, which has tons of fragrant and flavorful oils. Those oils are perfect for tricking us into thinking something is sweeter than it really is. I use zest in cakes, muffins and cookie doughs, and to bring out the sweetness in root vegetables, such as roasted beets or carrot soup.Its easy to build a stock of this ingredient. Any time you grab an orange for a snack, take an extra minute to run a wand-style grater or vegetable peeler gently over the peel, being careful not to extract any of the pith. The zest can be saved either by freezing it in a small container or by drying. To dry zest, place it in a 200-degree oven, turn off the heat and let it sit undisturbed until the zest is dry, about 30 to 60 minutes. Let cool completely, then place the dried zest in a clean spice jar. Very quickly youll have a supply of flavor ready to go in either your pantry or freezer. Note that you may need to chop up larger pieces, and the zest will lose some potency as it ages, so just add a smidge extra when following recipes that call for fresh zest.Im sharing a seasonal favorite in our house orange zest pudding with shaved dark chocolate.The best tool for zesting citrus is a fine wand-style grater. These very sharp graters are easy to use and do an excellent job of removing the flavorful zest without getting the bitter white pith beneath it.One and three-fourths cups low-fat or reduced-fat milkTwo and a half tablespoons cornstarch.Quarter cup light brown sugar.Zest and juice of one large orange.One egg yolk, lightly beaten.One teaspoon vanilla extract.Pinch of salt.Two ounces dark or bittersweet chocolate, shaved using vegetable peeler or wand-style grater. In a large saucepan over medium heat, whisk together the milk and cornstarch until dissolved. Add the brown sugar and continue to whisk while bringing the mixture to a gentle simmer. Cook, whisking constantly, until the milk thickens to a thick pudding, about two minutes. Whisk in the orange zest and juice, then remove the pan from the heat. Place the egg yolk in a small bowl. One at a time, while whisking, add a few tablespoons of the hot pudding to the egg. Transfer the egg-pudding mixture to the saucepan with the remaining pudding. Return the pudding to low heat and cook, whisking constantly, until it just begins to bubble. Remove from the heat, whisk in the vanilla extract and salt, then divide between four parfait glasses.

Which isnt to say the goodies weve gathered here a muddy punch and a granola-like snack dont have a sweet side. Rather, we decided to take a more balanced approach to our sugar rush. You know, just in case somebody over the age of 12 wanted some. Start with the spicy-sweet mole pumpkin seed clusters. Think of it as a savory-sweet granola that packs tons of addictive crunch and just a bit of heat (easily adjusted to your taste). It definitely has that potato chip-like cantstop-shoving-it-in-your-face quality. Embrace it. To wash it down, we created a spooky, muddy punch. Sure, its jammed with chocolate, but it tastes more fruity than sugary. We kept it simple and nonalcoholic in case youre willing to share it with the kids. But after they go to bed, we suggest adding a healthy splash of light rum. Following are the ingredients for spicy-sweet mole pumpkin seed clusters:Half a cup almond butter.Half cup honey.Half to one teaspoon cayenne pepper (more or less, to taste).Half a teaspoon kosher salt.One tablespoon cocoa powder.One cup toasted pumpkin seeds.Two cups flaked corn cereal, lightly crushed Line a rimmed baking sheet with waxed paper.In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the almond butter, honey, cayenne, salt and cocoa powder. Bring to a simmer and cook for 2 minutes.Remove the pan from the heat and add the pumpkin seeds and cereal. Stir to combine, then transfer to the prepared pan. Using two spoons, separate the mixture into small clusters. Set aside to cool.Start to finish: Twenty minutes, plus cooling. Servings: Ten.

Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate bits. Continue stirring until completely melted and smooth.
