The strong storm that seemed to have the Florida Keys in its crosshairs early Saturday appears almost certain to stay east of the Keys, moving up the coast toward North Carolinas Outer Banks, according to forecasts at press time.The only time I get super comfortable is when the storm is far, far from us, Monroe County Emergency Management Director Irene Toner said Tuesday afternoon.Well continue to monitor the hurricane for the next 48 hours or so, Toner said. But the good news is that we are finally out of the cone.That cone of uncertainty outlined by the National Hurricane Center lays out a balloon-shaped track to indicate where an active storm seems most likely to head. Late Tuesday advisories had the nearest edge of the cone shifting away from South Florida.Given the history of previous storms, you have to remain vigilant, Toner said. Still, by Tuesday morning, the situation started looking much better for us. Government officials went into the watchful mode as Hurricane Irene picked up strength in the Caribbean over the weekend. But school opened for the new year as scheduled Monday, and no visitor evacuations were ordered or expected.The eastward shift of the storm proved fortuitous for the Keys as Irene appears likely to become a major storm. By Thursday, the hurricane may pack fearsome Category 4 winds sustained between 131 and 155 mph and raise a storm surge of more than 12 feet in the Bahamas, according to National Hurricane Center forecasts. Some effects on marine traffic may be felt in the Keys today, particularly in Upper Keys waters closest to the storms path. We are advising people to stay off the water, Toner said. You dont want to get caught in that.Biggest storm yet to near the Keys veers away, Carolina now in pathHURRICANE IRENEBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org Wide cuts consideredThe Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board considered myriad potential 2011-12 budget cuts and a three-year plan to help build up rapidly shrinking reserves when it met Monday to finetune its spending plan. The board approved a rollback property tax rate of .4836 on July 29, which is expected to raise $9 million in revenue. Rollback is the tax rate necessary to produce the same amount of revenue as the current fiscal year. The total budget is $14.54 million and the district is slated to eat up $3.85 million of its $5 million in reserves to fund it. It would be left with just $1.15 million next year, according to budget documents. Chairman Bill Shaw didnt mince words Monday, saying the district is going to have to get rid of some people to right budget woes. Nobody wants to lay people off, but its the only way to make a significant difference in our budget. Shaw said the district should cut four inspector positions, and that it doesnt need receptionists in Key West, Marathon and Key Largo, where it has offices. He recommended a central phone line. Commissioner Phil Goodman suggested eliminating $125,000 in budgeted overtime, while Commissioner Jack Bridges read off a lengthy list of proposed cuts he said he expects staff to explore. Among them:Cutting back on employee travel to mosquito control conferences.A percent reduction in purchases not necessary for the job.Cutting boating repairs, a $12,500 budget item.Removing the purchase of two pickup trucks from the budget, a $40,000 savings.Smaller items like chamber of commerce and other memberships, and even $500 for bulletin boards.Cutting district pilots salaries by one-third overall. He said he has concerns with two pilots earning more than $100,00 per year the chief pilot at $114,000 and the supervisor of aerial operations at $103,376.

In an Aug. 16 discussion of an overall regulatory review of the Keys sanctuary, the issue of Snapper Ledge drew particular attention. Aloose-knit group of divers has been pushing to make Snapper Ledge, an area about 20 to 25 feet deep near Pickles Reef, an official Sanctuary Preservation Area for more than three years. We definitely need to protect this area, longtime Key Largo diver Judy Halas, an author of books on Keys diving, said Monday.People have come to realize that [Sanctuary Protected Areas] do protect fish and help make the Keys reefs some of the fishiest in the Western Atlantic, Halas said.Key Largo underwater photographer Stephen Frink launched the Snapper Ledge campaign after finding nurse sharks needlessly speared and abandoned at the site, where spearfishing was and remains legal.Thousands of people have since signed an online petition seeking SPAstatus for Snapper Ledge.

Theyre just the latest charges Merkeys faced since his first back in 2006, when he was 16. The Monroe County Sheriffs Office says the Miami Herald driver was dropping off newspapers just after 2 a.m. Saturday at the Shell gas station on the oceanside of Big Pine Key. Thats when Merkey allegedly pointed a fire extinguisher at her and told her hed spray her with it if she didnt give him a ride home to Summerland Key. Frightened, she got into her 1996 Ford Explorer and drove to her next delivery, the Big Pine Restaurant at mile marker 29.9 bayside, just up and across U.S. 1 from the Shell station. As she loaded newspapers into the machine, Merkey showed up and grabbed her, threw her down, jumped into the Explorer and took off, the Sheriffs Office says.The Explorer was later found crashed into the woods near Katherine and 45th streets on Summerland; Merkey was found at his home on 46thLatest arrest was last month, felony batteryBIG PINE KEYKeynoter Staff MERKEYSee Carjack,2ASee Mosquito,2ASee Irene,3ASee Snapper Ledge,3ACapturing the sunKey West High School continues as an environmental leader, getting a solar array.

Of that, some $144 million went to Florida Keys businesses and individuals. The agency, headed by Ken Feinberg, was set up last year to distribute $20 billion of BPmoney to those affected by the spill. The GCCF has largely succeeded in its primary objective to compensate those individuals and businesses who can demonstrate financial harm due to the Oil Spill, the facilitys report states. The compensation program has not been perfect; but several mid-course corrections have been made in an effort to deal with the constructive criticism offered by victims of the spill, public officials and others. So far, the agency has paid 359,441 claims to 204,434 claimants. It has dealt with 97 percent of the claims and is now dealing mostly with requests received in the past 90 days, the report says.

Commissioner Phil Goodman proposed the idea on July 25, Doyles first day on the job.Doyle laid out the groundwork for that plan during a budget workshop and regular monthly meeting Monday. It included numerous areas in which the district will explore streamlining future operations. Among them:Budget: Doyle intends to stabilize the districts rapidly declining reserve fund by 2014. He plans to set a mandatory reserve balance, encourage and reward staff-initiated cost-saving ideas, analyze effectiveness of media advertising and investigate consolidating or outsourcing district resources.Service: Determining how well the district is serving the public, including setting goals for answering and responding to resident calls for spraying.Public image: Gauge customer satisfaction through annual surveys, improve the district Web site and be proactive with the media.Organization: Reorganize, primarily using attrition and consolidating positions.Technology: Less time inputting data, more time controlling mosquitoes, and investigate using less pesticides. The board scheduled a workshop for Oct. 24, prior to the regular monthly meeting, to further discuss the strategic plan.It looks like the old days at bug board overBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROL BOARDBug board to sell land in villageThe Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board met for its regular monthly meeting Monday and took the following actions: Agreed with new Director Michael Doyles decision to sell a small Islamorada lot donated to the district by the Monroe County School Board. At this point, we dont see any future use for it, Doyle told the board. The lot is at 81650 Overseas Highway and houses a small building with a pair of garage bays. The School Board contacted me and I told them the reason we left the dilapidated building there was because we wanted to rebuild a similar building in the future, Chairman Bill Shaw said.Islamorada Fire Rescue has been using the lot for parking.Shot down a proposal by Commissioner Phil Goodman to place a freeze on new hires and salary increases.Goodman said he suggested the idea because the district intends to adopt a threeyear strategic plan and reorganize staff. It may be a needless thing because it probably wouldnt happen anyway, but we need a hiring freeze and salary freeze, he said. Theres a lot of things that need to be done and I think this needs to be put into place immediately. Fellow commissioners agreed new hires arent likely, but wanted to give Doyle leeway in case of emergency. The director has a good knowledge the board is bent on saving money. I tend to trust him, Commissioner Jack Bridges said. The vote was 4-1 against the hiring freeze, with Goodman the only yes vote.Revoked a pay raise given to Deputy Director Andrea Leal while she handled director duties after the retirement of Ed Fussell on Jan. 30. Doyles first day as director was July 25. Leal received an $8,000 annual raise retroactive to Fussells retirement date in March. She was earning $90,480. We wanted you to be in the running [for the director job], but we mentioned when you were no longer the acting director it would go back. That was the deal from day one, Chairman Bill Shaw said.Small lot used for parking by Fire RescueBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROL BOARDcuts to make. The bottom line is were going to be running a deficit this year and as far as Im concerned, if we cant afford something, we just cant have it, Bridges said. At the boards regular meeting following the budget workshop, the board unanimously agreed to Bridgesproposal eliminating housing allowances for elected commissioners. Each receives $2,400 per year.We shouldnt be receiving a housing allowance when were constitutionally required to live in our districts, he said.New Director Michael Doyle laid out the groundwork for a three-year strategic plan that includes stabilizing the rapid decline in reserves by 2014. Among his plans:Set a mandatory fund balance for the future.Encourage and reward cost-saving measures initiated by staff.Investigate lab testing of mosquito-borne diseases for other agencies as an income source.Determine cost-effectiveness of media advertising versus direct employee interaction with the public.Investigate consolidation or outsourcing services.Investigate savings on aerial larviciding methods.The board scheduled another budget workshop for Sept. 8, directly following a 3 p.m. closed session with district attorneys.Cuts expectedFrom Mosquito,1ACounty puts off tax referendumFearing an anti-tax sentiment in the January presidential primary election, the Monroe County Commission has decided to delay hearings on a referendum to extend a 1-cent infrastructure sales tax past 2018.County officials are hesitant to jeopardize the tax which brings in about $23 million annually for the county and the municipalities. The reason: They hope to use it to fund county sewer and stormwater projects, possibly until 2043.January is probably not the right time to move forward with largely a Republican primary and anti-tax issues floating around in the electorate, county Senior Director of Engineering Kevin Wilson said.The county is counting on the tax to help fund the estimated $156 million Cudjoe regional sewer project, among other things. The cost of the sewer project also will be borne by residentssewer fees and grants.At the commissions Aug. 17 meeting in Key Largo, Commissioner George Neugent called extending the tax a nobrainer because it allows the county to tax Keys visitors and use that money for capital improvements. He pointed to several projects like the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center that were built using the sales tax revenue.This would be one of those cases where youre shooting yourself in both feet to be opposed to it. When you look at even maintaining all the assets I just listed, if theres not money to work with in unincorporated Monroe County, it wont be too long after 2018 that youll see your [property] taxes going up, he said. Commissioner David Rice agreed. If we have nowhere else to turn, we have no choice but to put it on the [property] tax bill. Theres no getting away from the necessity to generate the funds for [wastewater and stormwater treatment]. Its got to be done, he said.

Edwards and Sayers best friends died. The two other men on the Back Country boat, Marlin Wilson Jr., 52, and Jon McGlothlin, 49, both of Homestead, survived but suffered serious injuries. Sayers, owner of the Beyond the Cut landscaping business, is survived by wife Marie Danielle, and three sons: Walter, 6, James, 4, and Calvin, 4 months. He also had 13 brothers and sisters. Don was Sams closest friend, said brother Chris Sayers. Funeral arrangements were pending at press time. Edwards was selfemployed in the construction business, said a family spokesman. Private services are planned.Both men were thrown from the boat when it struck the utility pole nearly head on. No cause of death has been released by the Monroe County Medical Examiners Office.Wilson and McGlothlin reached the crashed boat and used a portable VHF radio to call the U.S. Coast Guard. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the Monroe County Sheriffs Office and the Water Emergency Team of the Key Largo Volunteer Fire Rescue Department responded to the midnight emergency. McGlothlin and Wilson were rescued at the scene not far from the Card Sound Road boat ramp where they launched the boat. Asearch for Sayers and Edwards continued through the night.

Tavernier and Islamorada, and to decimate the fish populations at Snapper Ledge is both shortsighted and barbaric.But adding a new protected area to Keys waters takes time, said sanctuary spokeswoman Karrie Carnes.The way federal regulations are set up, its the same process whether its making one regulatory change to create a new SPAor making a whole suite of changes, Carnes said.The sanctuary is committed to moving forward on consideration of Snapper Ledge, she said, but its important for people to know that we cant cherry-pick things to move quickly.Those required steps in the regulatory process include public meetings, mapping, Federal Register postings and extensive review at the federal level.Sanctuary Superintendent Sean Morton plans to present a range of options for Snapper Ledge when the Sanctuary Advisory County holds its next session, scheduled for Oct. 25 in Ocean Reef.The Keys sanctuary now has 18 SPAs that are open to divers and snorkelers but where fishing, spearfishing and collecting are prohibited.If eventually approved, Snapper Ledge known for its dense concentrations of fish life would be the first new SPAsince the first marine-zoning plan took effect in 1997. But some protected areas, like the larger Tortugas Ecological Reserve, have been added. When SPAs were first proposed, there was such opposition from fishermen and people who want to ocean to stay free, Halas said. Now the thinking seems to have come around. People have seen other reefs in the Caribbean that are bare of fish. Wednesday,August 24,2011 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com KEYSRECYCLING We buy ALL scrap metals Mon.

The approach of Hurricane Irene threatened to divert cruise ships from calls in Key West, but the current track actually will add three ship visits, city spokeswoman Alyson Crean said Tuesday. The Carnival Destiny docked Tuesday in Key West after a change of route. The Monarch of the Seas makes a newly added call today, and Majesty of the Seas arrived a day ahead of schedule and will remain overnight. The Norwegian Sky will be in port from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday in an added call. More could come to Key West, Crean said. Theres still a lot of uncertainty, she said. For example, if the storm hits the Bahamas hard, there may be some that schedule, depending on how long it takes to clean up. And others could cancel. The hurricane serves as a reminder that the Keys are now entering the peak season for hurricane formation, Toner said. This season has been one storm after another. They keep rolling out, she said. We can relax today and tomorrow, then begin watching to see what the next one does.Threat appears overFrom Irene,1AProtective status soughtFrom Snapper Ledge,1A Feds indict alleged marijuana smugglerAman arrested on drugsmuggling charges at a Key Largo marina Aug. 5 could get a life sentence, says a federal indictment handed down Friday.Sean E. Saper, 37, apparently from Broward County, was indicted on 11 counts, including smuggling an estimated 400 pounds of marijuana into the Keys aboard his 25-foot boat, the Uncle Joe .U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents also have charged Saper with possession of a firearm while drug trafficking. That count could carry a maximum penalty of life imprisonment upon conviction. The 10 other counts in the indictment could result in a maximum sentence of more than 140 years upon conviction. Saper also faces charges of illegally bringing three Jamaican men into a U.S. port. Two of the Jamaicans are classified as inadmissible aliens for U.S. immigration because of prior felony convictions. Saper remained in custody after a Monday arraignment in Key West before federal Magistrate Lurana Snow. Saper, who pleaded not guilty, is being held on $100,000 bond. Saper and the Jamaican men were taken into custody by undercover Customs officers when the Uncle Joe docked at the Pilot House Marina, on an oceanside boat basin off mile marker 99.4, around 4 p.m. Aug. 5. Authorities reported having information that as Saper departed Bimini, he may have taken the illegal immigrants aboard as passengers. When they approached the Uncle Joe at the Pilot House, agents discovered 16 bales of marijuana, each weighing about 25 pounds, aboard the two-engine Mako-brand recreational boat. The indictment signed by U.S. Attorney Wifredo Ferrer says upon conviction, the federal government will seek forfeiture of Sapers property, including his boat, linked to illegal activity.Tip leads to Sapers arrest in Key LargoIN THE COURTSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comSCHOOLS IN SESSION Marathon High School seniors (above) start the new school year in style on Monday,getting a ride to campus on Marathon Fire Rescues antique truck.

Joann M. Coleman, 38, of Key West also was charged with disorderly intoxication. Coleman was taken into custody around 7 p.m. after a clerk at Dions Quik Mart on Big Pine reported Coleman left the store without paying for three lighters. Deputy Kimberly Clausen from the Monroe County Sheriffs Office reported the clerk said no charges would be pressed since the officer recovered the lighters and Coleman was banned from the store. But moments after her release at the scene, Coleman reportedly let fly with a curse-filled rant at the deputy, and threw a tube of toothpaste onto U.S. 1.Told by Clausen to retrieve the litter so it wouldnt pose a threat to the protected Key deer of Big Pine, Coleman refused, the deputy reported. So Coleman was taken into custody, and reportedly struggled with corrections officers and struck one in the face, according to an arrest affidavit.Earlier this week, Coleman remained jailed under a $6,000 bond.BIG PINE KEYKeynoter StaffInvaders found in Texas, LouisianaAdd Texas and Louisiana to the places where invasive lionfish first found in the Keys about two and a half years ago have taken hold. Federal scientists say Pacific lionfish have spread into the Gulf of Mexico from the Atlantic and begun inhabiting Gulf coral reefs, including the beautiful Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary. That spells trouble because, just like in the Keys, lionfish threaten the entire coral reef ecosystem. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said last week that several juvenile lionfish were found on the Flower Garden Banks, which lies about 70 to 115 miles off the coasts of Texas and Louisiana. Lionfish eat fish and crustaceans, such as snapper, grouper, shrimp and other reef fish that are in their juvenile stages. And they are not choosy they eat anything they can.Because of their 18 venomous spines 13 dorsal, five on the belly lionfish lack natural predators. And their egg sacks are protected by a chemical that renders them unpalatable to other fish. To try to stem their population growth in the Keys, the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and the Key Largobased Reef Environmental Education Foundation have established lionfish roundups, called derbies.In May, the first derby of the year, off Long Key, netted 531 lionfish. Saturday, another one in Key Largo netted more than 600 fish. The next one is Nov. 5, based at the Hurricane Hole Marina on Stock Island. At the close of each derby, divers receive awards for bringing in the most, biggest and smallest lionfish. Events also include an open-to-thepublic tasting where you can sample lionfish ceviche and fried fish bites (lionfish are widely considered among the tastiest fish around). Divers can participate in a derby from a private vessel or join a local dive operators charter. For complete information and team registration, visit www.reef.org/lionfish /derbies or call 852-0030. In addition to helping organize the derbies, REEF has released The Lionfish Cookbook, designed to encourage the removal and consumption of the invasive fish. It features 45 recipes for preparing the mild-flavored white meat of the fish similar to snapper, grouper and hogfish.

EDITORIALQuicker action on redistrictingLETTERS TO THE EDITORMoney,not kids,is focusWhen I moved here 10 years ago, I was impressed with the school system. All decisions were made for whatever suited the best needs of our children, not the most for the money. I have watched as this has changed due to scandals, mismanagement and poor decisions. The latest is the outsourcing of the custodial staff. You may not think these people have any effect on students in the school, but the fact is that they are part of the families of the students who attend the schools. They are people upon whom faculty and staff depend to clean up the mess and help move furniture on a daily basis. They clean up after the football games and anything else that takes place outside of the regular school day. At Coral Shores High School, the students know the daytime custodian by name. She helps make sure they all get breakfast and are on their way to class on time. She cleans up their mess with a smile. At Marathon High, Mr. Jingles (so named because of his many keys) is the one to ask for anything students need help with in the late afternoon because he works nights. Not only were these custodians let go, it was not in a fair and equitable manner. Even though it was suspected that the school system would vote for outsourcing, they were given two weeks in a letter stating they no longer worked for the Monroe County School District as of Aug. 31. If a decision such as this was made at a higher level, you can imagine the severance package that would be offered in extension of health benefits, severance pay and other items specific to upper management. What did the custodial staff receive? You can apply with the new company out of Ohio (not even local), making nearly half of what you are making now. If they turn this down, they cannot receive unemployment benefits. This is not a time when anyone can afford to be out of work, so these people and their families will struggle with less and hope that they can remain in the Keys. How can we afford to run out the people who make up our population? Its time to look at who we elect to the School Board. Make sure they are concerned primarily with the students and not only the money. We already gave up electing a superintendent. We must make sure we are careful who will be choosing that person for us. Vanessa Pilz MarathonFeds do help the KeysIn her recent letter seeking community support for the proposed Eco Canopy Tour, or zip line, at Crane Point Hammock, hammock Executive Director Audrey Moir states: Monroe County has never been a big recipient of our tax dollars sent to Washington, so finally, this would be a big reversal of that reality. It is simply not true that Monroe County doesnt receive ample benefit from our tax dollars. Consider that the paving done on Sombrero Beach Road by the beach in Marathon was paid for with funds from the 2009 stimulus to the tune of more than $1 million (the city never posted the colorful sign that would have alerted people to the federal governments involvement). In fact, I counted more than 20 projects in Monroe County that have been funded by the stimulus. Consider that the Federal Emergency Management Agency, for all its imperfections, was here in Monroe County after Hurricane Wilma. We personally got water, food and a replacement generator thanks to our federal tax dollars. And I dont know about Ms. Moir, but because of the Affordable Care Act, my 2011 mammogram was free. There are many more examples of how our tax dollars benefit our community and its individuals. People should look at the facts and ignore the rhetoric that presents the federal government as an entity that greedily sucks up our hard-earned money and gives us nothing in return. Ms. Moirs claim about not getting tax dollars for the county is not only false but also irrelevant to the discussion of the possible merits and drawbacks of the installation of the zip line in Crane Hammock. Beverly Welber MarathonToss the governorMy Keynoter was delivered and lo and behold, who was on the front page? Our governor, Rick Scott, with a grouper in his hand. Frankly, I would have saved the fish and threw him overboard. But wouldnt it be nice if he were invited to be the grand marshal at the annual Fantasy Fest? Diane Tremblay Palm Beach GardensSlow down on U.S.1Many times you read in the papers about visitors and locals alike speeding 30 mph-plus over the posted speed limits. Honestly, whats your hurry? You are in paradise. You cant enjoy the view if it is a blur. You wont be able to find your motel if you blow by the street. You wont be able to enjoy the beaches or fabulous sunsets if you are dead. There is only one road leading down and through the Florida Keys. Lets try to keep it a safe one. Thirty 30 mph and more over the posted speed limit gets you a mandatory court date complete with large fines and court costs. So please slow down, enjoy the scenery, be considerate of others and dont become a statistic. Nancy Auten Grassy Key We would not be making any news by stating that markets in the United States and around the world are volatile and that investors are on a rollercoaster ride that makes one want to reach for a bottle of Dramamine or some anti-nausea medication. Uncertainty about Europes debt problems, mixed U.S. economic data and the unprecedented ratings downgrade in our country (and possibly more to come) are just a few of the examples of news that is rattling nerves. While this situation is not likely to end anytime soon, investors should consider professional financial advice if they arent already doing so. They should also take advantage of the mountain of information available to raise their financial IQ, so to speak, so they understand not only what is happening but also why it is happening. These are uncertain times for which there is no playbook. Examples of outlets where this type of information is available are the TV shows, networks and publications devoted to covering the markets and investing, but be leery of the pundit du jour saying something like everything is on sale. Just because a stock or commodity is down 10 percent or even 60 percent doesnt mean that it is a good investment. If you dont have a financial advisor that you trust and have confidence in, this may be a time to begin looking to establish a relationship with one. If you have an advisor, he or she likely knows your risk tolerance. Would this be a good time to review those risk tolerances and make sure they are still appropriate based on todays financial landscape? Agood advisor has no problem holding your hand during these tumultuous times, and that may be helpful for many investors. These may not be the best times to go it alone. When reviewing your portfolio, consider whether this may be a time to consider life-based products that can provide a guarantee and can be a longterm safety net. The companies that offer such products are independently rated and such ratings are available from agents and advisors. Also, many savings, insurance and annuity products are guaranteed by the state or federal governments up to certain maximums, and some have minimum levels that limit potential losses. Stocks are the bedrock of most portfolios; this may be a time to look to balance yours. This is no time to make hasty decisions that lock in investment losses. As recently as 2008, when our markets crashed and we experienced historic problems with banks and financial institutions, many investors bailed out, only to see the markets hit extraordinary highs barely three years later. Afew things seem certain. Growth over the next couple of years will be sluggish. Interest rates will be extremely low, as will bond yields. Actually, some banks are even charging fees for bank deposits, as they have nowhere to go to make money on those deposits. But the historic financial landscape is littered with those who have bet against America during times of crisis. As we navigate these uncharted waters, we need to stay calm, seek trusted advice and use these times to further educate ourselves about the economies of our country and the world. Bob Lotane is communications and political affairs director for the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors-Florida. He formerly was press secretary at the Florida Department of Financial Services and the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation.Current process fails voters while protecting the incumbentsEvery 10 years, legislators in Florida and every other state are required to redraw legislative and congressional districts using fresh census figures in an effort to promote fairness in the political system. Unfortunately, its become an exercise in protecting political turf instead of protecting voting rights and representation. As a result, Floridas districts look like Rorschach ink blots (not that other states are much better.) They split communities and stretch across county lines without regard to any unifying principle, making it hard to disagree with cynics who say redistricting is a ploy our representatives use to pick their voters instead of having voters pick them. Insisting that public input will be at the forefront of this process, the Florida legislative committee tasked with creating new district boundaries is now on a road trip across the state asking voters for feedback. Last Thursday, they heard from Keys voters in a session at Florida Keys Community College. Citizens who attend these hearings are free to have their opinions heard but theyre at a disadvantage because legislators have not drawn any proposed boundaries to make the process useful and practical. So what are they commenting on? The intention of voters was made unmistakably clear when a significant majority approved constitutional amendments 5 and 6 last year. Voters sent an unequivocal message to lawmakers: Dont design districts to tighten your grip on power and shut others out. Make districts contiguous and compact. In short: Have them make sense. But instead of mapping rational districts using existing geographical boundaries, the Florida redistricting committee waited until June to start a series of 26 public hearings, which the League of Women Voters calls a three-month diversionary use of time. Astalling tactic. The committee created an impossibly tight deadline that leaves little wiggle room for Junes candidate filing deadlines. The committees response: It wants the public and the League to suggest the map lines, as if the U.S. Constitution did not clearly put that onus on the Legislature. With the current schedule, the new district boundaries will be ready just days before the June candidate filing deadline. When candidates file next year, will they even know what districts theyre running in? Will voters? Elections supervisors are rightfully in a panic. Its hard to take the process seriously when the very people who get to decide are the ones with a vested interest in the outcome the ones who sued to stop voterswill. It is difficult to have faith in the process when the Florida House has spent nearly $1 million to fight the amendments they now promise to abide by. The Florida League of Women Voters, the NAACP, Democracia USAand Common Cause have asked the committee to pick up its pace, and legislators should listen. Our democratic system is at stake. The Miami HeraldIn these unsteady times, bet on America LOTANE Truman finalists down to threeMembers of a Key West advisory board on Monday heard from three groups vying to design a future park at the Truman Waterfront, and will hand off their ranking to the City Commission to make the final call. The seven-person Truman Waterfront Advisory Board, after sitting through the 30minute presentations, ranked the three firms in descending order as follows: Atkins (formerly Post Buckley Schuh and Jernigan), Bermello Ajamil & Partners Inc., and Parker/Mudgett/Smith Architects Inc.Atkins, a huge Londonbased firm with offices all over the world, acquired Tampabased Post Buckley earlier this year for $280 million.Post Buckley had worked in the Keys in the past; among its projects was a newly raised Card Sound Road in North Key Largo about 20 years ago. Its also responsible for, among other projects, the Florida State University Academic Center and Stadium.The Atkins team used the act of flying a kite as a recurring theme of its presentation, laying out a vision for the 33acre parcel that was transferred to the city in 2002 as part of the U.S. Navy Base Realignment and Closure program.The kite analogy means having meaningful public space, waterfront public space, that would be breezy, that would big enough for people to go fly a kite, AtkinsLarry Levis said. Atkins is partnered locally with architect Bill Horn, who designed the Strunk Ace Hardware/Manley DeBoer lumberyard on Eaton Street and the Roosevelt Sands housing complex on Fort Street, among others. He said that beyond design work, his job is to be the local contact, available at a moments notice to go to the site or answer any questions from city staff. Aside from the large planned park, city staff is negotiating with two private entities that want to use part of the Truman Waterfront. The Meisel Spottswood Marina Management Co. wants to build a marina with upland support facilities; the Florida Keys Assisted Care Coalition is trying to obtain a lease deal that would accommodate construction of an assistedand independentliving facility. Before focusing development on just the marina component, Meisel Spottswood contracted with Bermello, Ajamil & Partners to plan a park scheme for the entire property. That Miami-based firm has already done a significant amount of site work on the Truman property, producing a number of detailed conceptual plans. Luis Ajamil acknowledged that the MSM design played up the tourist dimension. Now were going to step back and look at it from your dimension, a community dimension. We know this park and that really gives us an ability to work with this piece of property.The team from the Fort Myers-based Parker/Mudgett/ Smith Architects, a small firm compared to the other two finalists, didnt pitch any specific design plans, but framed its presentation around 10 different verbs: Transform, connect, stir, understand, engage, choose, validate, function, sustain and create.Committee recommends Tampas AtkinsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTTwo charged in credit-card scamWhen two credit cards you have are declined by a business and you then offer the clerk $600 not to call the cops, chances are that clerk will call the cops. Thats what happened about 2 p.m. Sunday at the Radio Shack at mile marker 101.4 in Key Largo, says the Monroe County Sheriffs Office. The result: Miami resident Luis Arias, 30, was charged with 10 felony counts each of passing a counterfeit credit card and trafficking in counterfeit credit cards, one felony count of using a scanning device to defraud, and 10 misdemeanor counts of illegally using a credit card. His girlfriend, Heidy Balart-Fernandez, 22, also of Miami, is charged with one felony count each of passing a forged credit card and aiding and abetting Ariasactivities.Deputy Becky Herrin says the couple tried to buy an Apple iPad at the store using two fake credit cards. After the second one was declined, Balart-Fernandez left the store and got into their car while Arias stuck around, trying to pay off the clerk.Store staff said no and then locked Arias inside the store and called the Sheriffs Office.When deputies arrived, they found Balart-Fernandez still in the parking lot and Arias still in the store.Detective Robert Dosh responded, and Arias told him hed purchased the fake cards over the Internet for $500 each, Herrin said. Overall, 10 cards were found, as well as a creditcard skimming device, used to steal credit-card numbers.KEY LARGO

However, Monroe County the Florida Keys was Floridas only county of the 67 that lost working-age adults. It also had about a fifth fewer residents under the age of 18 than it did a decade ago, but it gained in senior residents.The figures show that residents ages 18 to 64 propelled Floridas growth in boom counties on the periphery of major metro areas places such as Osceola County outside Orlando, St. Johns and Flagler counties near Jacksonville; and Pasco County outside St. Petersburg at least until the boom ended in a housing bust at the end of the decade. At the same time, traditional retiree havens such as Broward and Pinellas counties lost seniors and gained working-age adults. Gulf Coast counties with large numbers of retirees, such as Hernando and Pasco counties, saw their concentration of seniors diluted with the arrival of younger residents. There have been a lot more young people moving in, said Jeff Johnson, AARPFlorida interim state director. Some of the big Broward condos, which are sort of stereotypical of Broward County, a lot of those condos have had a pretty good piece of turnover in the last 10 years. There are a lot of people who are younger who are living in places that before you would have expected not to see anybody under the age of 75. From 2000 to 2010, working-age residents grew by more than a fifth, while Floridas seniors, 65 years and older, grew by only a sixth. Floridians under age 18 rose by less than a tenth. The influx of workingage adults helped push Florida down the rankings of states with the oldest population. Florida now has the fifth-highest median age, 40.7, trailing Maine, Vermont, West Virginia and New Hampshire. It had the second-highest a decade ago, and two decades ago it had the highest median age. Traditional retiree havens such as Broward County, home to Fort Lauderdale, and Pinellas County, home to St. Petersburg, even lost seniors during the decade. The working-age population rose in Broward County, known for its condo canyons of retirees, as it did in Pinellas County, whose retiree population was given the Hollywood treatment in the 1985 movie Cocoon. Floridas seniors flocked to new retiree destinations in the state, such as The Villages in Sumter County north of Orlando, and new golf communities in Northeast Florida near Jacksonville. Richard and Catherine Conti owned a condo in Boca Raton they used for vacations away from their home in Rhode Island. But when they wanted to retire full time in 2001, they decided to live in The Villages. They were lured by the chance to play nonstop golf, but also found that the dollar went a lot further in Central Florida than it did in South Florida. Its more expensive there than here, said Catherine Conti, 70. I didnt want to go into debt or anything. I wanted to have a nice retirement.But Monroe sees Floridas largest outflowAssociated PressTHE WORKFORCE Walgreens on track for November openingColdwell Banker Schmitt Real Estate broker Brian Schmitt says Marathons second Walgreens is still slated to be open some time in November.Over the past two weeks, contractors have made significant progress on the outside of the pharmacy giants newest Keys store at U.S. 1 and 55th Street. Schmitt said the only holdup could be tying into a water main on U.S. 1, which is state Department of Transportation property.Everything seems to be pretty well on schedule, he said. Theyre waiting for a tie-in on U.S. 1 for the sprinkler system and fire hydrant. Theyve been trying to get the permit since January.Schmitt said the inside of the store is nearly complete and that workers are painting and finishing the floor. He said retail gondolas and other fixtures would be installed next, along with a freestanding sign out in front of the property.Also complete is a concrete wall shielding the rear of the property from a residential street behind it. Schmitt says it will be painted and landscaped in the near future.The Walgreens is planned to be 14,500 square feet with a drive-through pharmacy. The company has a 50-year ground lease with Coldwell Banker Schmitt Real Estate. Its for 25 years with a 25year renewal option.Walgreensother Marathon location is at U.S. 1 and 107th Street, around three miles from the new site.Coldwell Banker Schmitt owns the plaza where the new Walgreens is located, up until Keys Fitness Center and Marathon Deli and Liquor.

That includes landscaping and other cosmetic improvements.The last business to be on the Walgreens site was Garys Pub and Billiards, which closed in 2004 after 10 years in business.

AKey West man on Monday pleaded guilty to illegally harvesting and selling black grouper, and harvesting lobster without holding valid endorsements and permits essential to the legal harvest, possession and sale of saltwater products. David P. Horan Jr., 42, entered the plea before U.S. Magistrate Lurana Snow in Key West. He faces up to five years in federal prison, up to three years of supervised release and a $250,000 fine. Sentencing is set for 10:30 a.m. Oct. 11 at the Sidney M. Aronovitz Federal Courthouse in Key West. The U.S. Attorneys Office in Miami says the illegal activity took place from 2007 through this past October. Heres how federal prosecutors laid out their case: Horan regularly harvested lobster and finfish while holding only a Florida commercial fishing license even though the state had designated a range of marine life, including certain finfish, as restricted species subject to special oversight. Florida law also required harvesters to hold federally required permits and licenses. Wholesale dealers in Florida are prohibited from purchasing lobster and finfish without confirming the seller possesses all required state and federal licenses. At the plea hearing, prosecutors said, Horan admitted he harvested spiny lobster by diving, without holding the requisite dive endorsement, and also harvested finfish without necessary federal permits that Florida requires. He sold his catches to Rusty Anchor Seafood of Key West Inc. (the Rusty Anchor on Stock Island). That business was convicted on related charges in April and ordered to pay a $500,000 fine. The illegal sales, prosecutors said, were concealed from authorities by misidentifying the true species being sold in trip reports filed with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. For example, 133 pounds of black grouper Horan sold on Jan. 2, 2008, for a wholesale price of $551 was falsely reported as mahoua, purportedly caught by cast net. Mahoua is an unregulated species commonly used as bait. Overall, Horan admitted to selling more than $30,000 in illegally harvested seafood. Adding to a robust alternative energy curriculum that already includes production of biodiesel fuel and electricity generated by a wind turbine, Key West High School on Monday unveiled a new solar array installed behind the school. The array, about 1,000 square feet, cost about $100,000. The money came from a $10 million allocation from the federal Department of Energy via the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The school along with 89 others in Florida got the money through the Florida Solar Energy Center at Florida State University.Susan Schleith, manager of the Sunsmart Schools ECenter program, said the goal is to expose high school students to alternative energy, hopefully creating an interest that could be pursued in college and, later, as a profession. These students will become the next generation of innovators, she said during the ribbon-cutting ceremony.Schleith also said theres a tie-in to emergency preparedness; in case of a power outage like one experienced Tuesday afternoon energy drawn from the solar array could be used to power lights, cell-phone chargers, fans and emergency medical equipment.If theres a hurricane or an emergency, we can power some critical functions. Solar is a perfect application after a storm. The sun comes out but no one has any electricity. Although at 10kW, the array is a drop in the bucket compared to the 500kW drawn by the high school during normal operation; that yields a monthly bill between $30,000 and $40,000.For a school, its not really significant, Schleith said, but the goal is to make students aware of solar technology.The Monroe County School Board established the Alternative Energy Center at Key West High in 2008 after a proposal from physics teacher Josh Clearman; since then, he has grown the program to include on-site conversion of waste oil into usable biodiesel fuel, and a wind turbine that produces electricity and provides data for math and science classes. It goes away from just theory to actual planning and application, Clearman said of the alternative energy production facilities. He said students would monitor the output of the array and compare it to the schools overall energy consumption, then examine the comparative efficiencies of different fuel types.Clearman described the lessons as focusing on just how much power were using. If that battery backup is charged, it helps offset our bill.School District Superintendent Jesus Jara said that for his efforts, Clearman is set to receive an award from the Association of Energy Engineers and World Energy Congress. Hes really putting Key West High School on the map in terms of alternative energy education. Ty Symroski, a member of the Utility Board of Key West that oversees Keys Energy Services, was also on hand for the event. When I look around, he said, I see the future, both in the technology and the students. Aside from scattered panels on residential houses and some lodgings and businesses, there are few solar arrays in sunny Monroe County; the Florida Keys Electric Cooperative operates a gridconnected array in Marathon that powers more than 20 local homes.

With Mateo Gazzale having graduated, the Conchs will have a new quarterback, either senior Tommy Ruffennach or junior Donald Roberts. Coach Jerry Hughes said he will select the starter for Friday nights game on Thursday. Ruffennach, a JVplayer two years ago, did not play football last season. But in the spring game in May, he threw for a touchdown and ran for one in a 22-0 victory over Choice Prep Academy. Hes done everything weve asked and hes trying to be a leader, Hughes said. Roberts, a military transfer student, had never played football until the spring game, in which he made a 20-yard run. With a new no-huddle offense and with players who can rip off big gains, the Conchs have the potential to score a lot of points. Our skill-position players are pretty good, said Hughes, referring to running backs NaQuan McNeill and Deonte Stemage (who two years ago played at Marathon), and wideouts Clive Georges and Michael Abreu. Georges, a senior with breakaway speed, was the teams top receiver last year. Abreu, known mostly as a baseball player, was persuaded by Ruffennach, his baseball teammate, to come out for football. He can catch the ball and he has decent speed, Hughes said. Except for senior guard Jerry Regis, the offensive line, which includes two sophomores and a freshman, is untested. Hughes isnt completely sold on the no-huddle because players have complained in practice about getting tired.

What hurricane?By all accounts, it appears the Keys will suffer nothing more than a stiff breeze from Hurricane Irene. So lets go fishing! The dolphin bite offshore has been fickle, with some charter captains catching a few here and there and some seeing none at all. Most are venturing out to the humps to catch blackfin tuna to fulfill their clients blue-water dreams. The blackfins are in the 10to 20pound class. Guys are either trolling for them early in the morning with small cedar plugs and small tuna feathers, or butterfly jigging for them. While youre offshore, keep an eye out for any floating debris that could hold a wahoo or two. Fishing for yellowtail snapper has been quite respectable, with the best bite coming from the deepest edge of the reef. Most fish are in the 15-inch category. The patch reefs are producing a good mangrove snapper bite, with some fish pushing four and five pounds. When it comes to mangrove fishing, it pays to be mobile. It generally takes very little time for them to find your slick and show themselves. So if they dont respond within a half hour on one patch, move on to another. Mixed with the mangroves on the patches are some keeper-size yellowtails. And fishing a larger pinfish on the bottom has brought up red and gag grouper large enough to go into the fish box. Anglers are finding good numbers of cero mackerel on the patch reefs as well as the deep side of the reef. Good fighters, you can send them straight to your smoker or use them for ceviche. As always, there are plenty of keeper mangrove snapper around the wrecks and banks in the bay. Once youve caught dinner, try your hand at catch-andrelease shark fishing. Its an eco-friendly fishery that will make you feel like youre on the Discovery Channel.The weeks bestCapt. Jeff Shelar, of Catch-Em-All Charters docked at Captain Pips Marina in Marathon, reports some nice dolphin out 24 to 30 miles, with lots of heavy lifters and a few gaffers in the 20to 30-pound range. Just inside the reef, Shelar has had good catches of mangroves and yellowtails. And his angler, Matt Nightingale from the United Kingdom, landed a beast of a 78-pound amberjack in 160 feet.

Chris Johnson CaptainsColumn See Fishing,2BBreakout yearforLady Conchs?After a long road to respectability for coach Jessy Hulme and her Key West High School volleyball team, the Conchs appear on the verge of a breakout season. For the first time, I have a legitimately good team, a close-knit group with a real shot at a district title, said Hulme, whose team will play in a preseason tournament with Coral Shores and Marathon at 6 p.m. Thursday in the Marathon gym. Last fall, the Conchs played some of the best volleyball in school history and finished 13-14, by far their best showing under Hulme, who was 1-19, 1-20 and 5-11 her first three seasons Optimism abounds because of a solid corps of seniors, including Olha Morekhodova, a Russianborn, non-English-speaking transfer from Argentina. A 5-foot-10 outside hitter, she already appears to be the most talented of the Conchs, Hulme said. The other outside hitter will be senior Britney Price, who was a force with her kills and blocks last season. The middle of the front line will feature 6-2 senior Lindsay Cowpland, an intimidating shot blocker, and 6-foot senior Shaniya Watson, who did not play last season and whose struggle with grades has kept her from achieving her potential in volleyball and basketball. Shes almost like a different person, Hulme said of Watson. Im very impressed with her maturity and level of responsibility. The Conchs also have experienced back-row players in seniors Leci Archer and Courtnie Coleman, along with juniors Matti Reid, Rachael Dietrich and Kayla Geide. Also returning are senior Madison Dorman and sophomores Ryan Appleby and Francesca Garcia, a serve specialist. The Conchs, who are in a new district with Coral Shores, Gulliver Prep and St. Brendan, will open the regular season against Venice at 11 a.m. Sept. 3 in the Bobby Menendez Gym. Hulme anticipates a thrilling season: We will be playing back-and-forth, nail-biting games.Argentinean Morekhodova lends depthKEY WEST VOLLEYBALL By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorPhoto by BERT BUDDEKey West volleyball coach Jessy Hulme (back row,center) gets ready for the season with her seniors.They are (rear from left) Olha Morekhodova,Shaniya Watson,Lindsay Cowpland and Britney Price;and (front) Madison Dorman,Leci Archer and Courtnie Coleman. Rebuilding year for Lady DolphinsGraduating six seniors means the 2011 volleyball season will be a rebuilding one at Marathon High School. But coach Teresa Konrath says the future is bright for the Dolphins program, with over 40 players signed on for middle school, junior varsity and varsity play this year. We have a bunch of hard workers and young kids that can work through this system for the next few years. Theyre making strides very quickly, she said. The season kicks off Thursday with the Dolphins hosting county rivals Key West and Coral Shores high schools for a preseason tournament. The varsity team will be young, with just one senior, Ashley Stullenburger. Shes new to the program this season. Taylor Konrath, Cassidy Van Voorst and Yelixa Larios-Lopez are the only other upperclassmen in the Dolphinsnine-player rotation. Its rounded out by sophomore Sara Dodamead, freshmen Brandi Spalten and Samantha Bonilla, and eighth-graders Jordan Roney and Sydney Konrath. Its definitely a rebuilding year and were putting in an entirely new program. We have some options because the kids are young and they move across the floor well, coach Konrath said, adding that all the girls have strong serves. Taylor Konrath will fill some large shoes in replacing Kelley Struyf as the teams top hitter. Shell be the main hitter on the front line. Coach Konrath said Spalten and Bonilla will be counted on as defensive specialists, while Stullenburger will be a passer and backline hitter in her first year with the team. Dodamead is a middle blocker and hitter, while Roney a standout softball pitcher is a quality setter and can also hit well for a young player. Sydney Konrath will be a frontline hitter and passer. Thursdays games are scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. Marathon (7-9 last year) will open against Coral Shores, followed by the Canes against Key West. Then the Conchs face the Dolphins.Vball squad hosts Conchs, Canes ThursdayMARATHON VOLLEYBALLBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Key West defense, anchored by senior linebacker St. Pierre Anilus and junior lineman Roberto Val, appears to be solid. Also returning are senior lineman Brian Hughey, senior cornerback Devin Barber and senior safety Jecori Sala. A new lineman is Anthony Rice, a 6-foot-2 basketball player. As for special teams, the new place kicker, replacing Glynn Archer, is Orion Jones, but the punting game, which was a glaring weakness last season, is still in disarray. We have no punter and no long snapper, Hughes said. The Conchs, 6-3 last season, will open the regular season at home against Miami High on Sept. 2.Punting a problemFrom Football,1B stayed at Captain Pips Marina and Hideaway and fished three days with guide, Neil Apley. Anice bunch of dolphin rewarded them for their efforts. The SeaSquared spent most of the week taking repeat clients shark fishing, with a few snappers thrown in on a couple of trips. The Akesson family returned from Spain, and Sam Rodgers brought his buddies back from Pittsburgh to do battle with sharks. Both groups caught between 10 and 15 very large lemon sharks. Mike Casella returned with his twin sons from Boca Raton and Richard Lanthier, from Montgomery, Texas, came back with his ladylove, Lisa, and their grown daughters. These groups chose snapper fishing on the reef and dined nicely on yellowtails and mangroves. The Rohe clan, from Palos Heights, Ill., wanted to do it all, so we started with some shark fishing and finished the trip catching mangrove snapper for dinner. The Richard Hobbs family, from Jacksonville, braved bumpy seas to catch their limit of yellowtail snapper with Capt. Kevin Wilson of Knee Deep Charters out of the Geiger Key Marina. Wilson also hosted world-class violin maker Nicolai Tambovsky and his son Sasha, from West Palm Beach, along with a friend of 35 years, pianist George Borisov from Russia. The trio released a bull shark and brought back their limit of yellowtail snapper. Capt. Moe Mottice of Reel Lucky Charters at Turtle Kraals in Key West reports great action on tarpon, sharks and snapper just five minutes from his dock. Yellowtail and mangrove snapper fishing has been great on the reef, with sharks and barracudas mixed in for entertainment. Mottice also had an excellent dolphin bite during the full moon in 900 feet of water off Key West, with all fish caught while trolling ballyhoo.Casting for CharityRemember, Capt. Spiders Casting for Charity takes place Thursday at the 7 Mile Marina/Saltys Waterfront Grill at mile marker 47.5 bayside in Marathon. The fun contest runs from 6 to 8 p.m., and this weeks recipient is the Turtle Hospital. Capt.

Im excited to get started, said Ed Holly, preparing for his first varsity fall game as Coral Shores head coach. The kids are excited. We want to play. The Hurricanes are scheduled to host Ransom Everglades at 7:30 p.m. Friday in the annual Kickoff Classic, a preseason game played under regulation rules. But Hurricane Irenes path this week will have a lot to say about when, where and if that happens. We cant worry about that, Holly said. We can only control the things we can control. Coral Shores saw its intra-squad Green and Gold Game washed out by rains last weekend. Players used the time for extra work on the playbook. We really need to use [the Kickoff Classic] to solidify parts of our game, Holly said. This is going to be true preseason game. The plan is to play the varsity for about three quarters and then give as many young guys a chance to play as possible, he said. Coral Shores, 2-8 last season, ran into one equipment problem this week: The club ran out of jerseys as the roster topped 50 players by Monday. Thats a great problem to have, Holly said. Every single jersey we have available Friday will be occupied by a student-athlete. Ransom Everglades (3-7 in 2010) decisively blanked the Hurricanes by a 36-0 score a year ago this week. The message to our guys is to look forward, not in the rear-view mirror, Holly said. This is a new time and new team thats never played together before. The Hurricane defense under coordinator Rob Harper appears to have fewer questions than the revamped Coral Shores offense. Linebackers Henry Roshi, Ryan Bahn and Darryn Bahn will see time behind a line that includes tackle Will Ismer and end David Bogue. We feel pretty good about where we are defensively, Holly said. Junior quarterback Addison Duma-Kenny returns from the spring game at quarterback. An injury will sideline veteran halfback Andrew Garcia this week, with a crew of six runners working into the backfield. That group includes Joey Vaughn, Kodi Roberts and Alex Gomez. Were doing it by committee for now, the coach said. Everybody whos been out here working hard will get a shot. Finalizing a starting front on the offensive line is a major point of emphasis this week. Younger players still have a chance to impress coaches, particularly on special teams, Holly said. Our biggest improvement as a team will be between Week 1 and Week 2, he said. Our goal is to fit players into the right spots, and make sure the chemistry works.

LIVING BRIEFSForks Over Knives screens ThursdayThe film Forks Over Knives is coming to Marathon for a one-time viewing on Thursday at the Marathon Community Theatre, mile marker 49.5. Cocktails (cash bar) and light hors doeuvres are served from 5:30 to 6 p.m. and the movie screens from 6 to 7:30. Adiscussion will follow.

The survey, conducted by the American Automobile Association and Kurgo, a manufacturer of pet travel products, examined the behind-the-wheel habits of dog owners who travel with their pets. Nearly six in 10 drivers 56 percent of respondents said they travel by car with their dog at least once a month. Respondents admitted to petting their dogs (52 percent), taking their hands off the wheel to hold the dog while braking (23 percent), and using their hands to prevent the dog from getting into the front seat (19 percent), according to the survey. Three percent of the respondents admitted to taking pictures of their dog with cell phones while driving. The AAAfoundation for traffic safety said that looking away from the road for 2 seconds doubled the chance of being in a crash. Only 16 percent of respondents said they used a pet restraint when traveling with their furry companions, while more than 83 percent acknowledged that an unrestrained dog in the car can be dangerous. Drivers should use a pet restraint system for their dog every time the pet is in the vehicle, said Cathleen Lewis, director of public affairs for the AAANew Jersey Automobile Club. A restraint will not only limit distractions, but also protect the driver, the pet and other passengers in the event of a crash or sudden stop.Study:Lots distracted by dogs in carsMcClatchy-TribuneOUR PETS The best way to prevent injury to both you and your dog if youre driving together is to restrain the pooch in the back seat.Bacon lovers unite: Bacon Freak is hereFive little words could change your life: Bacon of the Month Club.

Designing a completely hurricane-proof yard is impossible, but the decisions you make before and after you plant can help your yard survive the fiercest of storms. Hurricanes can alter landscapes in an instant, so with Irene out there, its a good time to revisit ways you can prepare your garden before one appears. When you are getting ready to plant, make a list of hurricane-tolerant trees that will fit well with your landscape plan. Many native trees possess strong root systems or the ability to shed branches in a storm, which will reduce wind resistance. These should be considered for the major canopy trees in your yard. They will provide protection for other plants and help insulate your garden from damage. Trees such as live oaks, Quercus virginiana, gumbo limbos, Bursera simaruba, and sea grapes, Coccoloba uvifera, are all large, hurricaneresistant natives. If you have established trees in your yard, they should be prepared by light annual pruning that allows for air movement. Aproperly pruned tree should let some wind and light through the interior of the tree. When pruning, use minor thinning cuts to open the trees. This is a cut all the way back to the trunk or a major branch and differs from heading cuts that are made mid-branch and promote resprouting. Never remove more than 30 percent of a trees canopy and contact a certified arborist for large jobs. Beware of drive-by tree trimmers who will offer to hurricane proof your trees. These chainsaw-wielding workers will almost always hat-rack, a form of pruning in which all branches above an arbitrary line are removed, causing the tree to look like a hat rack. This is very damaging to the tree and usually removes between 75 and100 percent of the canopy. Hat-racking causes an explosion of growth that will make your tree top heavy. The numerous branches that sprout as a result of hatracking are weakly attached and are prone to shed in a storm. Hat-racking may even kill the tree.There are easy ways to minimize storm damageMiami HeraldYOUR LANDSCAPE Gumbo limbos are great canopy trees able to withstand high winds.
