In their own referendum in Marathon, city voters overwhelming decided the County Commission should aggressively pursue commercial air service for Florida Keys Marathon Airport. But they also overwhelmingly said no to creating a taxing district that would subsidize an airline. And in Islamorada, voters approved a change to the village charter that will allow Village Council candidates to be elected by simply receiving the most votes rather than going to a runoff if no one receives at least 50 percent of the vote. The schools referendum was easily the most important one on the ballot because the district can now, starting with the budget that takes effect July 1, shift millions of dollars generated through a half-mill tax (50 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value). On the referendum, 9,816 people (74.58 percent) voted yes and 3,345 (25.42 percent) voted no. The OK is key because for fiscal year 2012-13, the shift will amount to around $9.8 million and district officials say theyre already looking at a deficit from $4 million to $6 million even before budget season starts. Without the shift, that deficit would be at least $14 million and programs as basic as athletics would be on the chopping block. People realize that this was the right thing to do, School Board Chairman John Dick said. Asked about the still-needed budget reductions: Maybe we can use a smaller knife; we dont need to use a hacksaw or a machete. Its the students were really helping here, Superintendent Jesus Jara said. Now weve got to continue working in the right direction. Were not perfect but were going to get there. The current budget is $82.3 million, down from around $94 million three years ago. The past year to save money, the School Board outsourced custodial work, forced all district staff to take a week of unpaid furlough and severely downsized its substitute-teacher program, among other things. The two referendum questions in Marathon arent binding, but its clear the residents want commercial air service but dont want to be taxed for it.On the question of whether the County Commission should pursue airline service from Marathon to the mainland, 1,057 (64.49 percent) said yes and 582 (35.51 percent) said no.But set up a taxing district to subsidize it? There were 1,146 votes against (70.57 percent) as opposed to 478 in favor (29.43 percent). There hasnt been commercial air service at Marathon since 2009, when Cape Air operated a Continental Connection to Fort Myers for the tourist season. It sought a subsidy from the county and city to continue a second season, but both governments said no, and Cape Air pulled out. Before that, in 2007, Delta flew into Atlanta from Marathon for six months, but discontinued service when turned down for a $160,000 subsidy from the county and city. In fact, commercial service has been spotty since 1994 when the county unveiled a new and bigger terminal, saying the space was needed. At that time, at least three airlines operated out of Marathon. On the Islamorada referendum, the vote to change the charter was 894 for (58,28 percent) and 640 against (41.72 percent).And in Marathon, split on airport; in village, yes to election change Keynoter StaffNew dorm at FKCC faces deficitFlorida Keys Community College staff projects that the schools new dormitory, Lagoon Landing, will lose $48,000 this semester due to declining student occupancy. To offset that projected loss, the college is reaching out to agencies the Federal Bureau of Investigation, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, for example that use the college for training as potential short-term residents paying nightly rates. When the dorm opened in August, there were 82 Goonies, the playful nickname given to dorm denizens; now there are just 68. At $4,000 per student per semester, the college is well below its break-even occupancy of 80 students.

Testifying before a U.S. House panel at a hearing at a Sunny Isles Beach hotel Monday, Lars Herbst, Gulf of Mexico director of the Department of Interiors Bureau of Safety and Environmental Inspections, said under questioning that his agencys inspection was not as thorough as it would have been if the rig were under U.S. oversight.

Smiths sister was born in Key West in 1954. And his father edited the base newspaper when stationed with the U.S. Navy in Key West. Coming home was a journey that took many detours, Smith said, including a 10-year stint building the first independent radio network in the former Soviet Union, where he moved in 1994.This was after starting his own radio syndication company, the National Alternative Network. He worked with SPIN magazine to sell radio programming to college radio stations throughout the U.S. and Canada. That taste for alternative programming plays a big role in his goals for WKYZ, Smith said.I come from the old school of radio where the first rule is when you build a radio station, it should sound like the community that it serves.

largely vacant, as the students have been consolidated on the second level. Back when the studies were initially done, it was assumed that 80 out of 100 beds would give us a break even, she said. Were a bit below that now. Were reaching out to [various government groups] to see if theyd be interested in a short-term rental lower than their per diem rate. Mauk said thatsfixed at $191 per night for the Key West area. She is considering a nightly rate of $75 to make Lagoon Landing seem attractive. Danny Friedman, an 18year-old marine engineering student from Palm City and a resident of the dorm, said he wasnt aware of the colleges plan to boost occupancy. Itll definitely make things, pausing, more secure. Friedman, who has a parttime job at West Marine on Caroline Street, said things at the dorm had calmed down quite a bit since the first semester, partly due to fewer students, but mostly because the newness of the situation has worn off. I like living in the dorm, he said, focusing in on its proximity to Keys waters. Its a really easy commute to class. Mauk said she doesnt think students were leaving the dorm to live elsewhere in the Keys, but were leaving the institution for other reasons. Some of these kids coming down to the Keys, I dont think maybe really vetted it. One kid was like, You dont have any malls.I dont think theres an issue with the price point. The $8.2 million bondfinanced dorm had been in the works since 2008. In the months before it opened, FKCC hired Sherolyn Hopkins to serve as the director of residence life; after a protracted probationary period, she was dismissed by a January board vote. College spokeswoman Amber Enrst-Leonard wouldnt go into specifics about what happened. Unfortunately it just didnt work out, she said. Ernst-Leonard said the position would be eliminated and that Erika MacWilliams, the dean of student affairs, and Doug Pryor, director of purchasing and plant operations, will share the responsibilities.Dormitory losing moneyFrom Dorms,1A KeysNet.com Keynoter 2A Wednesday,February 1,2012 PREDICTED TEMPERATURESDA Y HIGH L O W WED.8070 THURS.8171 FRI.8171 SAT.8171 Forecast: Expect partly cloudy skies with a slight chance of showers.

The inspection was done off the coast of Trinidad and Tobago in early January at the invitation of Repsol, the Spanish company that is the first of several international energy companies to lease the Scarabeo 9 as it mines for oil on Cubas side of the Florida Straits. But since the rig is operating in Cuban waters by a foreign company, U.S. inspectors have no way to independently verify if Repsol fixed the problems found by DOI and the Coast Guard. The United States also has no authority to demand the repairs be made. We only have the word of Repsol because we would have no way of knowing ourselves. We would not allow it, Herbst told Rep. David Rivera (R-Miami). We have a major problem then, Rivera replied to Herbst.The Coast Guard and DOI released a joint statement on their inspection in early January saying what many observers took to mean the Scarabeo 9 meets the types of safety standards to satisfy U.S. scrutiny.The review compared the vessel with applicable international safety and security standards as well as U.S. standards for drilling units operating in the U.S. Outer Continental Shelf. U.S. personnel found the vessel to generally comply with existing international and U.S. standards by which Repsol has pledged to abide, the statement read. But Herbst now says U.S. inspectors would demand a follow-up before greenlighting the Scarabeo 9. The level of review we did offshore [of Trinidad and Tobago] was not thorough enough for us to allow [the rig] to drill in the U.S., Herbst said.Rivera, whose district includes Homestead and Naples, has introduced a bill that would require foreign companies to pay to clean up spilled oil reaching the United States. The bill is now in the Transportation and Infrastructure committee. It is one of several pieces of legislation filed by both Democrat and Republican lawmakers the past two years in response to Cubas offshore drilling plans.The Scarabeo 9 arrived in the Straits between Havana and Key West on Jan. 19. Rear Adm. William Baumgartner, commander of the Coast Guards Seventh District, told the panel that as of Monday, the rig was not quite at the [drilling] location, which he said is 80 miles from Key West. But drilling is expected to begin within days, Baumgartner said.Below standardsFrom Oil,1A Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYFlorida Keys Community College freshman Danny Friedman likes living in the campus dorm because its close to the water and to class.Since it opened in August,occupancy at the 100-bed Lagoon Landing has dropped from 82 students to 68. Comcast going all digital, expanding basicDigital television will soon come to even basicservice cable subscribers of Comcast Corp. in the Florida Keys. All Comcast customers in Monroe County also can expect to see a new channel lineup with more channels and additional on-demand offerings by Feb. 16, Canton said. Our digital rollout has been going on for more than two years throughout most of Florida and now its coming to the Keys, Comcast spokesman Spero Canton said. In addition to improved picture and sound quality, Comcasts basic service plan will add about 10 additional channels, he said. This is something very positive, he said. It changes and enhances the existing service so people will be getting more and better service. However, a free set-top box for basic-cable customers is required for older televisions to receive the new Comcast signals. If you dont get one by March 21, theres a good chance youll lose your signal. If you have a digital box next to your TVnow, youre probably fine, Canton said. If your [television] cable comes straight out of the wall and into the back of your TV, you probably need to come in and get a digital converter, Canton said. Customers have been filling local Comcast offices recently to pick up the free cable boxes before the switchover expected later this month. Most Comcast customers, who already have more expansive channel services that require a digital cable box, dont need a new cable box, Comcast spokesman Spero Canton said. Each Comcast basicservice customer can receive up to three of the necessary adapter boxes to accommodate television sets in different rooms. The change affects only Comcast cable customers. Alternative television systems Dish Network, DirecTV, ATTU-Verse and others are not involved. The overall change to the World of More system, which includes options for new high-definition channels, is scheduled for Feb. 16 locally. No additional charges for basic-service customers, who typically pay less than $15 monthly, will be assessed, he said. For some people, the basic service is fine, Canton said.Change comes on Feb.16 in the KeysTECHNOLOGYBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com Subscriptions 743-5551
Wednesday,February 1,2012 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com Study: Pythons likely wiping out Glades mammalsWhile Burmese pythons boomed in the Everglades, populations of key native animals headed in the opposite direction their numbers crashing to near-zero in the case of bite-sized creatures such as raccoons, opossums and marsh rabbits. Those are the findings of a sobering study published Monday, the first by scientists to assess the impact the giant constrictors have had on the complex food web of the Everglades. Aword sums it up: Carnage. Scientists have firmly established what pythons eat, pulling the remains of just about everything that walks, crawls or flies in the Everglades from the bellies of captured snakes the past decade. But just how much a snake population of unknown size has been eating has largely been a guess, at least until now.According to the study published in the science journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, the probable answer is, once again, just about everything.When we actually did the calculations, we were astonished by the magnitude of the declines, said Michael Dorcas, a biology professor at Davidson College in North Carolina and the studys lead author. The peer-reviewed study, based on nocturnal field surveys conducted before and after the python invasion, suggests a collapse of the parks mid-sized mammal populations since the mid1990s and points to the exotic snake as prime suspect.To assess the impact of pythons on wildlife, researchers counted live animals and road kill during sunset-to-sunrise surveys from 2003 to 2011, driving slowly along the main roads in Everglades National Park and counting the most common and easy-to-spot animals.They conducted 313 surveys, covering some 39,000 miles, as well as 26 surveys at sites along the park border and in adjacent federally protected lands. They compared the results to similar surveys conducted in 1996, before pythons had spread across much of the Everglades. The changes in 15 years were startling. Raccoons once so abundant that park managers had to post signs warning campers to safeguard food from roaming hoards of the wily thieves dropped 99.3 percent. Opossum sightings fell 98.9 percent. Observations of bobcats, foxes and deer also all fell precipitously, though researchers believe those declines could be less from snakes eating them and more from the indirect effect of pythons reducing the amount of prey to go around. And marsh rabbits, small brown bunnies frequently seen foraging along roads in the parks pre-python past, didnt appear at all during the surveys.Frank Mazzotti, a wildlife ecology professor at the University of Florida, likened the study to a grand jury investigation a damning initial finding that needs more research to refine and confirm.Other factors, such as changes in Everglades water levels that can affect the food chain at microscopic levels may have contributed to the mammal decline as well, he said. Still, the Obama administration pointed to the findings as more justification for the decision earlier this month to ban the import and interstate sale of Burmese pythons, two types of African rock pythons and yellow anacondas. The decision to declare them injurious species had been criticized by reptile breeders and collectors, as well as some Republican lawmakers who contend the measure would kill jobs in the cottage industry of constrictor breeding. The study suggests a strong link between the rise of the snake and the fall of the bunnies and other mammals, finding little support for other possible causes. Between 2000 and 2010, a period when python captures soared from two to nearly 400 a year, no diseases swept the mammal population and there were no big losses of habitat or other major environmental changes that might explain the declines, the study found. Scientists can only guess at the population of Burmese pythons in the vast expanse of the Everglades, estimating the number in the tens of thousands, even after a record freeze in 2010 that may have knocked the population back by half or more. Amonth after the cold snap, biologists captured a 16-foot female in a nest with more than 100 eggs.New evidence doesnt point anywhere elseBy CURTIS MORGAN cmorgan@MiamiHerald.comTHE EVERGLADESCranney-Gage files for Mosquito BoardKey Wester Jillian Cranney-Gage filed Friday to run for the District 1 Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board seat this year.The 29-year-old Republican became the sixth official candidate for Mosquito Control, for which three seats are opening up. Like many candidates in recent years, Cranney-Gage said her focus would be fiscal responsibility at the district. She said she hopes to bring fresh ideas to the board. Ive always had an interest; I was just waiting for the time, she said. I feel like now is a good time to get in and help.Former Director Ed Fussells $184,600 annual salary and what many critics said was a bloated budget were the big issues during the 2010 election cycle. Fussell retired in January 2011 and new Director Michael Doyle has pledged to replenish the districts rapidly declining reserves over the next three years.Cranney-Gage joins fellow Republican Pat Bowman, who ran in 2008 as Pat Unferth, prior to getting married, in the Aug. 14 primary. Five-term incumbent Joan Lord-Papy, a Democrat, holds the District 1 seat and hasnt said if she plans to run again.Cranney-Gage, a married mother of three, completed a masters degree in business administration from Kaplan University in August. Shes the senior accountant for the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority and administrator for the Lower Florida Keys Hospital District board Cranney-Gage has been with the Aqueduct Authority since 2006 and worked parttime for the hospital district since 2005. I do all their accounts payable, she said. We have nine board members and I assist them in their duties. Cranney-Gage said her financial background with the Aqueduct Authority and hospital district would benefit Mosquito Board.Ive been researching and gone to some of the meetings. Its a state agency I feel I can assist. Theyre coming up with a strategic plan and I think Id be a good addition to the team, she said.Cranney-Gage had a minor run-in with Key West police in April. She was arrested for obstruction without violence during an incident involving her husband, but the state expunged her record. Four-term Mosquito Control Board incumbent Steve Smith, a Democrat, has a pair of challengers for the District 3 seat in Democrat Timothy Root and Republican Stephen Hammond.Bill Shaw, a four-term incumbent Republican, filed for re-election to his District 4 seat. No one has filed to oppose him.FKAA accountant is running for Lord-Papys seatBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comELECTION 2012 CRANNY-CAGEMcPherson files against SaundersMorgan McPherson, a former two-term Republican Key West mayor, filed papers with the state Division of Elections on Thursday to take a second shot at winning the District 120 state House seat held by Democratic incumbent Ron Saunders. When the two faced off in the 2010 campaign, the candidates raised a combined $476,817 in cash and in-kind contributions, making it one of the most expensive campaigns in local history. Ultimately Saunders, now in his third consecutive twoyear term, beat McPherson 61.3 percent to 32.7 percent, or 8,489 votes to 5,916 in results from Monroe County precincts. The entire district, which includes portions of south Miami-Dade County, comprises 133,500 people. Saunders the House Democratic leader filed papers to seek a fourth consecutive term in office back in December but is considering a run for the state Senate. McPherson, 43, was mayor from 2005 to 2009, losing his bid for a third-term to current Mayor Craig Cates; hes also a former pastor of the Revelation House Ministries in Key West. Hes area president of MLS Direct, a merchant services company. His main platform: Doing away with the state Education Department.In his previous run against Saunders, McPherson campaigned on a platform that included freezing property taxes.Saunders, a 56-year-old attorney, originally served in the House from 1986 to 1994. Before being sent back to the House in 2006, he made runs for the state Senate and secretary of state when that office was still an elected one. ELECTION 2012 Keynoter Staff

Key West City Attorney Shawn Smith said he has g iven attorney Michael Burke the g o-ahead to further challen g e the rulin g .Ive authorized our outside counsel to file for a rehearin g and/or certification to the Florida Supreme Court, Smith said via email Tuesday.He said the Florida Lea g ue of Cities and the Florida Stormwater Association will join the city and have authorized the filin g of briefs in support of the citys position.In 2002, the city established an ordinance that outlined stormwater fees but didnt start billin g the colle g e until 2005. The first bill included three years of accumulated char g es of more than $65,000. Subsequent bills, $3,102 monthly, were paid upon receipt by the colle g e, eventually addin g up to the $160,529.60. The colle g e contends, and the appeals court affirmed Monroe County Circuit Court Jud g e Mark Jonesinitial rulin g that the colle g e, as a state entity, enjoys soverei g n immunity with respect to the citys stormwater utility fees, accordin g to the six-pa g e opinion issued Jan. 18. Furthermore: The city has no operational stormwater system on the colle g es property, and has not identified any of the citys facilities that collect or treat stormwater g enerated by the colle g es property. Key West stormwater fees are calculated based on the amount of non-permeable land that water will run off as opposed to soak into. For instance, a parkin g lot or buildin g would be subject to stormwater fees but a park or g reen space would not. Burke, on behalf of the city, has ar g ued that a refund is inappropriate, as the payments were remitted by FKCC voluntarily. But a three-jud g e DCApanel a g reed with Jonesfindin g that the colle g es payment was made due to a mutual mistake of law or under reservation of the ri g ht to seek a refund. Accordin g to Smith, the city has paid Burke $31,631.94 to date for handlin g the liti g ation.3-judge panel: Stormwater fee not requiredBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comIN THE COURTS GEOTISGeoti s con s ider s City Council runNOAAlauds Mortons leadershipThe superintendent of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary has been named the outstandin g mana g er of his federal a g ency.

Sat. 9:30 5:30 Sundays Noon 5:30 Two turbines go up on Cudjoe KeyKeys Energy Services is making the most of a state Clean Energy Grant it was awarded last summer. The most recent initiative a pair of wind turbines has been getting noticed a lot lately at the Lower Keys utilitys Cudjoe Key substation. Keys Energy spokesman Julio Barroso said the utility plans to track how much energy the turbines produce and make the information available on its website. Barroso said the plan was to install one on Cudjoe Key and another on Stock Island, but instead both were put in the same location. The smaller turbine is 35 feet tall, the maximum height allowed under county rules. Keys Energy got a waiver to install the other one at 52 feet. Its always been said the Keys arent a good area for wind generation. Our thinking was to gain some information and see if height had something to do with it, he said. Theyre definitely there for a year and well see if we want to keep them both there or move another to perhaps the Stock Island substation. Theres no plans one way or the other. Barroso said whatever energy is produced by the experimental turbines would remain on site to help power the Cudjoe substation. The $434,000 grant to be matched by up to $336,000 by Keys Energy is administered by the Department of Energy and made possible by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Following are the other initiatives Keys Energy is pursuing in the grant: Installing an energy management system to control lighting and cooling at the Keys Energy service building on James Street in Key West.Constructing a 34-kilowatt solar array on a Keys Energy warehouse on Stock Island.Offering $100,000 in rebates to qualifying customers who purchase energy efficient appliances.Providing 225 residential energy surveys over 18 months, including distributing compact fluorescent light bulbs, low-flow showerheads and faucet aerators.Hosting workshops for commercial customers to learn how to implement energy efficiency in their businesses.Keys Energy experimenting with technologyBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comCLEAN ENERGYMontessori ranks highThe Florida Department of Education has assigned letter grades to public schools since 1998. But on Monday, for the first time, the state released numerical rankings to help parents evaluate their district schools. The standout school in the Monroe County School District is the Treasure Village Montessori in Islamorada, rated the ninth best combination elementary/middle school out of 194 statewide. Rankings are determined based on Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test results; annual learning gains; graduation rates; accelerated coursework participation and performance; and post-secondary readiness. Monroes three other combination elementary/ middle schools, Plantation Key School, Key Largo School and Sugarloaf School, are ranked 30,33 and 52, respectively. Floridians care about education, Gov. Rick Scott said in a prepared statement, and it is critical that our students have access to world-class schools that will give them a pathway to a successful career. Measuring each schools performance helps gauge our progress toward that goal. The Big Pine Academy is the highest-ranked elementary school in the Keys, placing 201 out of 1,795, while Glynn Archer Elementary School is near the bottom of that group at 1,613. The only true middle school in Monroe County, Horace OBryant in Key West, is rated 97 out of 583. Coral Shores High School and Key West High School are ranked 214 and 231, respectively, out of 404. Marathon Middle/High School, designated by the state as a combination school including high school elements, rates 19 out 55 total. Floridas Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson said: Measuring a schools ability to boost academic achievement helps ensure that we are providing a high-quality education for our students. Having the data available in an easy-to-use format allows parents, educators, and business and community leaders to view the information and make decisions about how they can be involved in education decisions for their local communities.State issues new grades for all schoolsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com MONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS

EDITORIALGOP is going way too farLETTERS TO THE EDITOR LETTERS TO THE EDITORWe need grand entranceMost places seem to have readily identifiable landmarks that identify them to the world. As examples, Paris has the Eiffel Tower. New York City has the Empire State Building. Hollywood, Calif., has its lettered sign on a hillside. San Francisco has its Golden Gate Bridge. What do the Florida Keys have? A small wooden sign in the median when you enter Key Largo and a buoy at lands end in Key West. I would like to suggest a project that would recognize the Florida Keys worldwide. I would suggest that it should be a joint project financed by all the Keys chambers of commerce, businesses, private citizens and government contributions, as opposed to a tax on the voters. Several years ago, the county spent a great deal of money holding public meetings through the Livable CommuniKeys program to see what projects most interested the residents. I attended several open meetings held by some firm hired to develop the plan in Key Largo. Agreat report was assembled. As far as I know, it lies in a dusty drawer somewhere in the county archives. One of the most favored projects was to replace the traffic light in "downtown" Key Largo at mile marker 100 with a traffic circle or so-called roundabout. I thought it was a tremendous concept and I think it should be done, with a center structure similar to the Eiffel Tower, only designed as a lighthouse, brightly lit at night and decorated on all sides with murals depicting the activities available in the Keys. Howard Gelbman Key LargoZip line:Potential liabilityMany may be confused by the controversy over the proposed Crane Point Museum and Nature Center zip line. Marathon has applied for a state grant for $735,000 to fund the installation of the zip line. In return, Crane Point must create 21 jobs. My concern stems from the risk to Marathon taxpayers who would have to repay grant funds should Crane Point be unable to create the number of jobs they optimistically project. When I spoke to the Marathon City Council at its Jan. 24 meeting, I voiced my misgivings on this subject, citing inadequate community notification and involvement, lack of transparency and a rushed approval process that produced a flawed grant application, requiring extensive revisions. I see a remedy for protecting the city's taxpayers: Have the City Council and its Citizens Advisory Task Force carefully review the revised grant application before it is resubmitted to the state. After all, time invested now may well save taxpayers financial grief down the road. Linda Miller MarathonThe latest: The real possibility that food-stamp recipients wont be allowed to buy certain foodWith Floridas GOPpresidential primary now behind us, the focus on politics shifts to Tallahassee, where the Legislature has been in session for a month already. Since elections are supposed to measure the pulse of the voters, lets see what message Florida voters sent to the Republican Party on Tuesday. In Tallahassee, the Republican-controlled Legislature is certainly not bashful about trumpeting its swing to the right. During committee hearings this week, the House Health and Human Services Access Subcommittee passed a measure that would ban snack foods for anyone using food stamps. State Rep. Scott Plakon (RLongwood) labeled sodas, cupcakes, ice cream, muffins, potato chips, pretzels and other snacks as unhealthy, nonstaple foods. Placing restrictions on the diet of poor families who qualify for food stamp supplements strikes some as going too far down a path of government intrusion. Even fellow Republican Dana Young (R-Tampa) thought Plakons bill was overreach: I dont want people telling me what to eat and I dont think its right for us as a government even if they happen to be poor. Even if they happen to be on food stamps. When state Rep. Mark Pafford (D-West Palm Beach) tried to offer an amendment that would exempt cake or cupcakes on a childs birthday, the committee voted along party lines to defeat his amendment. Come on, people. Have we been reduced to this level of civic discord? What happened to conservativesbelief that less government intrusion is part of the GOPcredo? Oh, thats right, we forget about the Terry Schiavo controversy and the rush to intervene in a right-to-diewith-dignity case that still angers civil libertarians. Passing legislation that would ban snack food for the poor even draws fire from big-business Republicans. The Florida Retail Federation and the Florida Beverage Association both opposed Plakons bill in Mondays committee hearing. The debate continues as this legislation and others equally mean spirited move through committees in Tallahassee.

Yet despite lower profits, many civic-minded businesses recently made donations for a silent auction that raised nearly $700 for a very worthy cause. The Guidance/Care Center is a nonprofit charitable organization dedicated to the provision of high-quality and cost-effective behavioral healthcare services throughout the Florida Keys. We rely on the generosity and support of community-minded individuals and businesses to be able to continue to provide these worthwhile and much-needed services. Our Personal Growth Center is a nonprofit clubhouse that provides rehabilitative services for adults in Monroe County who suffer from mental illness. Our countywide program provides classes, training and activities to its members to restore skills for independent living and effective life management. On behalf of the members and staff of the center, I would like to offer our most sincere appreciation for the recent generous donations to our silent auction fundraiser. The funds raised will be spent on supplies, social and educational outings, and equipment to further advance the goals of the center and our members. Lisa Watson Guidance/Care Center Personal Growth Center Marathon The letter writer says this sign,erected last year at mile marker 106,isn't enough to welcome Keys visitors.Veterans inspirationalOur combat-wounded veterans exhibited the indomitable power of the human spirit during their recent Wounded Warrior Project Soldier Ride through the Keys. This awe-inspiring event was sheer beauty in its scope and magnitude. These Purple Heart recipients arrived at Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 10211 in Key Largo. The VFW members were resplendently adorned with positive energy and grateful hearts that radiated warmth and love. Expanding on this good vibration were all those who assembled at this staging area to greet these warriors. Dignity, reverence and respect filled the air. The VFWkitchen prepared and served breakfast to 80 veterans, graciously meeting all of their needs. During the ride, numerous people provided on-site help and support, from Sheriff's Office deputies to schools officials and students. Their exchanges of love with these severely wounded men and women were miraculous. Its cathartic impact momentarily healed their torn bodies and anguished minds. The most seriously injured rider was a Marine who had lost three limbs. As I spoke with this fellow Marine, he stated that interacting with the students in front of Coral Shores High School had reaffirmed his conviction to become a teacher. The love that was shown to this man will reconstruct his life and the lives of the students that will one day follow. John Donnelly Key LargoDolphins welcome veteransOn Jan. 13, the Dolphin Research Center welcomed the participants of the Wounded Warrior Project's Soldier Ride and their support team and staff for a joyful visit. Thanks to the generous support of the Charles Evans Day for the Wounded Warrior Project, upward of 30 cyclists were treated to Dolphin Encounter swims. It deeply touches the hearts of all attending to watch while these men and women who are coping with often devastating injuries slip into the water to enjoy a fun-filled time with the dolphins. The laughter from the soldiers echoes throughout our facility and brings smiles to everyone's faces. We are grateful to the area companies that help make this special day possible. Tilden's Dive Shop provided wetsuits for the soldiers. The Stuffed Pig prepared and contributed a delicious lunch. Publix Supermarket donated soda, paper products and utensils. DRC's volunteers brought in home-baked goodies for dessert. We would also like to thank Monroe County Mayor David Rice, Marathon Vice Mayor Dick Ramsay, City Councilman Mike Cinque and the many other local dignitaries and residents who joined our staff and volunteers in giving the Soldier Ride a true hero's welcome. The Charles Evans Day at DRC has become a true community event. All of us look forward to welcoming our nation's warriors again next year.

Flagler would be proudThe Pigeon Key Foundation sends out a million thanks to the community of Marathon and the people up and down the Keys for braving the brisk temperatures and choppy sea conditions to come to Pigeon Key to help celebrate the day when, 100 years ago on Jan. 22, the first train rode the Key West Extension from Miami to Key West. What a celebration it was then, and on Jan. 14 at Pigeon Key. Henry Flagler personified by Arti Engler and later by Lauren Spinelli, as well as people dressed in period style, set the scene. At the antique car show on Knight's Key, Ron Ellenbaas stole the show with his 1910 Thomas Flyer, a chain-driven touring car he drove all the way from Ocean Reef. The volunteers helping with the games, food and drinks were awesome. They made it work. Thanks also to the musicians, exhibitors, media and all others involved.We deeply apologize for the long waiting lines for the ferries. We obviously miscalculated how many wonderful people would attend. Captains Linda, Larry, Billy and Zack of Paradise Divers, and captains Herb and Donna of the Spirit, were the water transport heroes. Again we say thank you to all for making this historic day a fun-filled family event. Riet Steinmetz Charlotte Quinn MarathonHistory comes to lifeMarathon students enjoyed a unique learning experience to mark the 100th anniversary of the arrival of the first train in Key West on Jan. 22, 1912. "Henry Flagler," performed by Paul Jellinik, engaged the audience with a monologue about his life and the construction of the railroad that went to sea. It was a pleasure to witness the presentation and efficient school organization in progress. Assistant Principal Wendy McPherson, the teachers, David Oser and the students are to be commended. Student deportment was noteworthy. Their arrival, attention and appropriate applause were a pleasure to behold. My compliments to staff and students in attendance, and Mr. Jellinik. Best of all was the innocent question of an elementary school student who asked "Mr. Flagler," "Are you really 182 years old?" History came to life for the 584 elementary, middle and high school students in the Marathon High School auditorium. Kudos to the Florida Keys Council of the Arts and Pigeon Key for making this unique learning experience possible. Lynda Berrigan MarathonLibraries essentialSomething wonderful has happened: As of Jan. 23, our library is again open on Mondays. The library has always been at the heart of our community.

The measure, being pushed Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, was introduced by the Senate Communications, Energy and Utilities Committee on Monday and will be voted on next week. Energy advocates described it as a small step toward encouraging a market for renewable energy in Florida and weaning the state off its dependence on natural gas. The bill, SB 7202, would allow for large companies, such as large as Walmart and Publix, as well as individual homeowners, to get sales tax breaks and tax credits if they invest in renewable energy machines, products and technology. Renewable energy includes everything from solar panels to bio-fuels, wind farms and tidal power. Last year, legislators allowed a series of similar tax credits to expire. The Senate bill also allows companies to install electric car charging stations without having to be regulated like a utility company. It includes algae among the list of authorized bio-fuels. It also requires the states utility board, the Public Service Commission, to require that electric utility companies be judged on their fuel diversity when they seek approval for new power plants. Florida utilities rely on natural gas to generate more than half of the states electricity, a fuel that is dependent on foreign sources and transportation to bring to the state. Proponents of renewable energy have argued for years that the state should encourage the domestic production of alternative fuels with incentives that jump-start competition. Matthew Carter, the committees staff director and a former PSC chairman, emphasized what the bill did not contain: No rate increase for ratepayers. For the past three years, the states largest utilities used the renewable energy debate to push for a bill that would allow them to raise rates on customers so they could develop solar farms. Year after year, the measure stalled. This year, Putnam has proposed the states large utilities get automatic approval to raise rates so they can develop up to 75 megawatts a year in renewable energy, but the Senate has not yet included that provision in the bill. Susan Glickman, of the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, disagreed with Carter that the bill will not raise costs to customers. She said that if legislators fail to include stricter energy efficiency requirements, and allow the PSC to maintain the status quo, customer bills will automatically rise. Energy efficiency is always cheaper than a new plant ... even the cheapest power plant, Glickman told legislators. But Floridas PSC last year threw out the conservation goals for half the state rather than require companies to capitalize on energy efficiency programs as regulators do in 17 other states. SACE, the clean energy advocacy group, is suing the PSC for that decision, alleging it has violated state law. Under current law, the PSC is allowed to pass on the fuel costs to customers each year as well as pass along the cost of planning for projected nuclear power plants. FP&L customers, for example, will see a fuel charge this year of about $1.87 per month for every 1,000 kilowatt hours of power used, according to the company, and $1.52 per month to pay for nuclear projects. The Senate bill is a small step in the right direction, Glickman said, but added. Florida is definitely behind other states under most measures and will remain so.Homeowners, businesses would get itBy MARY ELLEN KLASmeklas@MiamiHerald.comYOUR TAXESThree blood centers mergeThe merger of three of Floridas independent, notfor-profit blood centers Community Blood Centers of South Florida Inc., which serves the Keys, Floridas Blood Centers Inc. and Florida Blood Services Inc. is complete and they are now one organization.The merged organization will operate as OneBlood Inc.Don Doddridge, who has been CEO of Floridas Blood Centers the past 10 years, will lead OneBlood as its CEO. Bud Scholl, CEO of the Community Blood Centers of South Florida, has been named chief integration officer and Mike Pratt, interim CEO of Floridas Blood Centers, has been tapped as chief technical officer. A12-member board of directors will oversee the new blood center. Rick Walsh, chairman of the board for Floridas Blood Centers, has been named chairman of the OneBlood board. He said: The merger will allow us to operate more efficiently and effectively. As a result of the merger, the blood supply will be more stable, donor outreach will be more effective and we anticipate it will allow us to better control costs and help mitigate price increases to our hospital partners.The new governance structure of OneBlood requires continued oversight on a local level; therefore, the three local boards of directors will remain and provide guidance to ensure each area is meeting the needs of its communities.The new organizational structure consists of four operating regions: north, west, central and south; the Keys, obviously, are in the south.OneBlood serves more than 200 hospitals and health facilities and employs about 2,700 people.

In addition, Andy Griffiths said he wants to remind the board that the district-owned parcel, adjacent to Marathon High School on Sombrero Beach Road, wasnt purchased as an investment, but rather to support the school with more athletic fields, a track and additional parking. Board member Robin Smith-Martin led the charge against the already budgeted expenditure, noting that since a sale of the property isnt in the works, theres no need to spend the money to upgrade. That convinced board member Duncan Mathewson, leading to a 2-2 vote; Griffiths was absent. I need to remind this board what the original reason for this purchase was: Not to sell it but to add it to our existing assets, he told the Keynoter The district purchased the former nursing home property and building for $7.4 million in 2005; later discussions with Cay Clubs Resorts and Marinas about turning the space into a multi-function affordable housing complex fell through shortly before the developer went belly-up in 2007. In July 2010, West Palm Beach developer Jack Weir made a surprise offer of between $1.5 million and $2.7 million, but that went nowhere. Griffiths said he would bring back the filling proposal at the boards Feb. 14 meeting at Coral Shores High School, set to begin at 3 p.m. Key West High School has a practice field and a playing field for every sport, Griffiths said. Marathon has one field for every sport. Thats why they cant keep their grass. And they have no track and they have limitations on their parking. If were going to keep the property, Griffiths said, we need to fill the pit. Over the summer, the district spent around $350,000 to remove a 13,000-cubicyard pile of fill, which was then dumped into the football-field size pit. The pending $100,000 expenditure would pay to truck more fill to the pit. Griffiths also said hes working with Marathon Planning Director George Garrett to determine what sort of development rights are attached to the property and how those units could be sold or transferred to another development, potentially generating revenue.

At 18 inches, I wouldnt be able to get any at all. Hogfish was a prime topic at the three-hour Monday session, designed to take comments on a variety of fishery issues.An advisory panel to the South Atlantic Council, which regulates fishing in federal ocean waters from Key West through North Carolina, previously endorsed the larger size limit. However, based on public comments, the council could decide not to pursue any new regulations on the species.Keys fishermen told the council representatives Monday that Keys waters cannot be compared to North Carolina.Things really are different between North Carolina and South Florida, said Doug Gregory, the Monroe County Cooperative Extension Services marine agent who commented as a recreational fisherman. Everything is bigger up there. Thats a crazy idea, Conch Key commercial fisherman Gary Nichols said of an 18-inch limit for hogfish. We dont see that [18-inch] fish here.... Even when I went out as a kid, we didnt see those.The consuming public loves that fish, Nichols said. At 18 inches, youll take hogfish off every menu here.Several speakers said no major changes should be made to the hogfish rules until marine biologists conduct a thorough population study. Thats certainly something well have to take into consideration, said South Atlantic Council Vice Chairman Ben Hartig, a Hobe Sound commercial fisherman. Hartig was joined in Key Largo by John Jolley, a council member from Boynton Beach, and agency staffers. In another Keys-related topic at the South Atlantic session, a proposal to enact a no-take area at Snapper Ledge, a reef spot off Tavernier, drew generally favorable comments, with some reservations. Key Largo underwater photographer Stephen Frink, who launched the Snapper Ledge campaign in 2008, said in written comments, Issues such as deteriorating water quality and the lionfish invasion are now stressing our local coral reefs to the point that those with unique geologic attributes, such as Snapper Ledge, now require greater protection in a more accelerated and immediate timeframe. Tim Grollimund, also an underwater photographer, said his analysis of divers fish counts at Snapper Ledge the past decade show an overall downward trend in several species, notably rock beauties, queen angels, black and Nassau groupers, goatfish and grunts. Key Largo commercial fisherman Ernie Piton said his industry has not been consulted on Snapper Ledge. This needs to be talked about some more, Piton said. That area is a good spot for mangrove snapper at night in the summer. Ive commercially fished here for 30 years and never even knew there was a spot called Snapper Ledge, said Walter Rentz of Key Largo. Comments on issues being considered by the South Atlantic Council still can be submitted in writing.

Aplan by the federal South Atlantic Fishery Management Council to create a catch-shares plan for golden crab a deepwater crustacean caught by traps was endorsed by fishermen Monday in Key Largo. Under catch shares, a maximum harvest limit would be determined, with a set percentage of shares allocated to individual fishermen. Ive seen people who didnt know what they were doing make a mess out there, said fisherman Brad Whipple, speaking in support of catch shares. Currently there are fewer than a dozen boats in the relatively new golden-crab fishery, a number the crab fishermen like. I was amazed to see the great ethics used in this industry, said fisherman Jason Peters. Saying knowledge of currents and deep water is essential to protecting the coral bottom, Chip Bethell said, Acatchshare program is an effective way to maintain the fragile coral-reef environment. Strong industry opposition scuttled proposals to create catch shares for the South Atlantic snapper-grouper fishery, and lobster.Catch shares on the table for fishermenFISHING THE FLORIDA KEYS Cops: Man uses fraud for houseAKey Largo man used forged documents in an attempt to acquire ownership of a Valencia Road house, an arrest warrant served Jan. 25 says. Larry M. Fails, 59, was charged with obtaining property by fraud, counterfeiting a public document and uttering a false document, all third-degree felonies. Detective Robert Dosh from the Monroe County Sheriffs Office said his investigation indicates the signature of homeowner Robert Pistol was forged on a quit-claim deed and power-of-attorney document submitted to Monroe County property officials in order to claim ownership of the stilt home off the oceanside of mile marker 102. The defendant knowingly presented this fraudulent document as a valid quitclaim deed with the intention of obtaining the victims property, Dosh wrote. Pistol reported the incident in November. Pistol said he gave Fails only a limited power-of-attorney document in 2008 so Fails could take over mortgage payments to Citibank while Fails sought a loan to buy the house. The detective said in March 2009, Fails filed a quit-claim deed and an altered power of attorney with the county in 2009. Pistol said his signature was forged on both documents, the warrant says.

You're less likely to buy as much of it.Story, 3B 50 years young Mariners Hospital in Tavernier marks its golden anniversary with a big block party.Story, 3B B Sports & OutdoorsFishing CommunityLifestyleReceiver Georges signs with ArizonaWith his speed and pass-catching ability, Clive Georges has long graced the turf of Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium. Soon, though, he may be catching attention at the Rose Bowl, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and other fabled stadiums of the great American West. Georges, a Key West High School senior wide receiver, plans to sign today to play at the University of Arizona of the Pac-12 Conference. He will get a full scholarship. He is the first Conch player to sign with a Division 1 university since Laurence Marius, who played in 2006 at Georgia Tech. Two other Conchs will also sign today: Linebacker St. Pierre Anilus with Georgia Military College, a community college in Milledgeville, Ga., that has sent more than 400 players on to four-yearcolleges; and defensive end/back Jecori Sala with Division II McMurry University in Abilene, Texas. Georges, 6 feet 1 and 165 pounds, holds the Key West career reception record with 90 and the career total yardage record with 1,352. He is also a star on the track team and has a 2.7 grade-point average. He was rated a threestar recruit by Scout.com, which called him a major sleeper. He also received offers from Western Michigan and Florida Atlantic. Arizona was unaware of Georges until, at a coaches convention in San Antonio in early January, Key West coach Jerry Hughes told Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez, a longtime friend, Ive got a kid you might be interested in. Hughes gave Rodriguez a DVD of the players highlights. Georges soon received home visits from Arizona offensive coordinator Rod Smith and Rodriguez, whom Hughes succeeded as a volunteer coach at West Virginia University in 1989. Then last week, Georges flew to Tucson, where he committed to the school and quickly became enamored of the campus. I liked everything the kids, the atmosphere, the coaches and how everything is so close, he said with a wide smile Monday at Key West High, where, of course, he was donned in Arizona Wildcat apparel.Paterson to UMCoral Shores High Schools star soccer player Jasmine Paterson is scheduled to sign today to play for the University of Miami Hurricanes.

He finally batted it away, picked it up and sped over 50 feet of blond wood toward the basket. Coming down on the left side was teammate Ryan Wagner, ready to take the pass. One Mariner player stood in Guiebs way. He faked the pass, twisted away from the defender and spun the ball into the hoop. The crowd roared like no crowd had at the Bobby Menendez Gym in many years. I was trembling, Wagner said later. I didnt know what he was going to do. The basket, which came with three and a half minutes left in Saturday nights game, put the Conchs ahead, 56-49. They went on to win, 6859, for their 11th consecutive victory in what is still an undefeated season. This one did not come easily. Missing numerous easy shots in the third quarter and unable to stop the long-range bombing of a 6-foot-6 blond sharpshooter named Rick Moore (six 3-point shots, 22 points), the Conchs found themselves trailing (42-41) after the third quarter for the first time this season. Early in the fourth, the Tritons had leads of 44-41 (answered by a Wagner 3pointer) and 46-44. A3point shot by Guieb put the Conchs ahead, 49-46, but Moore promptly hit again from deep in the corner. Even after Guiebs great play, Mariner (17-6) came back. Moore hit two more 3s, including one with 2:08 left that cut the lead to 60-57. It was 6259 going into the final minute and thats when Mariner came up empty. They got rattled, said Conch forward Thomas Butler. After Moore actually missed a 3-pointer, a flurry of Conch steals ensued that led to two layups by JeQuan Lopez and two free throws by Wagner. We got a little nervous but we pulled it out, Lopez said. Key Wests muscular front line pinched the Tritonsleading scorer, 6foot-9 Kendrec Ferrara, who scored only nine points and had one field goal. Lopez led the Conchs with 18 points, Butler scored 15, Wagner had 12 and Guieb 11. It was senior night, and coach Anton Lopez (in a double-breasted red blazer) elected to start seldom-used Dontae Valdez, who responded with five first-quarter points. They are very athletic and skilled, Mariner coach James Harris said of the Conchs. We came in without much information on them.Latest win is 68-59 victory over MarinerBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BASKETBALL Photo by BERT BUDDEKey Wests Junior Guieb goes high over Mariners Donald Minto to score two of his 11 points Saturday night.

Were looking to spoil that and to also get revenge for our meeting with them in December, said Marathon coach Kevin Freeman. The Conchs defeated the Dolphins, 6148, on Dec. 21 in Key West. But the Conchs have won only once since 2005 in the small Marathon gym. Both bleachers will be out and it should be a raucous crowd, Freeman said. They say theyre going to beat us, Key West center Anthony Rice said. Marathon is 4-12 but Freeman said the Dolphins are playing much better than they were early in the season. We believe we can win our district tournament, he said. Dick Wagner

For as low as $49.28 Call Laura at 743-5551 Sailfish bite tails off with the warm weatherOur warm-weather stretch continues and, while some of our fish species are responding positively, others not so much. Specifically, the sailfish. Fishing for sails has been sporadic, to say the least. When conditions are ideal with northeast winds and an actual cold front, they seem to pop up everywhere. But lately, with east to southeast winds, the sailfish have parked themselves in Miami. However, February typically delivers one or two hard cold fronts to send them south to the Keys. On the positive side of the warm winter is the presence of dolphin and blackfin tuna in the offshore waters. And on the reef, lots of yellowtail snapper. Fishing for yellowtails has been excellent and, with the water temps remaining in the mid-70s, should remain so until the passage of a strong cold front. The best depths are anywhere from 25 to 50 feet. Much deeper and youre wrapped up in sharks and kings, which also like to eat yellowtails. Speaking of kingfish, there are plenty of them around to keep the smokers fired up. Some big ones have been taken in yellowtail slicks, but the largest specimens are being caught on kites with larger live baits such as blue runner and goodsize pilchards. There is also ample cero mackerel action and a few straggler Spanish on the edge of the reef. On the wrecks, the amberjack are producing some hardfighting action. Again, larger live baits, such as blue runner and large grunts, are enticing the heftiest of the AJs. Drop down a live pilchard, and you may be rewarded with a mutton snapper. The patch reefs are giving up their usual assortment of mangroves, smaller yellowtails, some really nice muttons and all three of the mackerel species. The channel humps are turning out some large lane snapper plus mangroves, a few keeper yellowtails and lots of real nice porgy and hogfish. You may want to get in on the hogfish fishing now, as the feds are contemplating increasing the minimum size to 18 inches. Contact the National Marine Fisheries Service to let them know what you think of this change. In Florida Bay, the mangrove snapper and Spanish mackerel bite remains excellent along with a smattering of cobia.The weeks bestBill Dyer Jr. and Sr. from South Miami took a fatherson fishing trip with Islamoradas Capt. Greg Poland. They caught everything from mackerel to sharks on light spin tackle and live shrimp in the Sprigger Bank area. Fishing on the Walk About out of the 7 Mile Marina, Capt. Dallas Tisdale, with the assistance of mate Alex Bell, took a family of three (mom and two little daughters) to the bay for a day of catching mangrove snapper and Spanish mackerel. Capt. Larry Bell and mate/son Alex of Blue Magic Charters in Marathon put a father and his two kids on the same good mangrove and mackerel bite in the bay. They also released about 30 grouper. The crew of the SeaSquared spent the week fishing families and groups from several Midwest states as well as Florida and New Jersey. We spent three trips in the bay catching mangrove snapper and Spanish mackerel and released a lot of keepersize grouper. Acouple of trips to the reef and wrecks produced limits of yellowtail snapper, kingfish, amberjack and one very large rainbow runner. Dennis and Melinda McWilliams and Bob and Swani Kepple, from Greene, Iowa, fished the reef with Capt. Kevin Wilson of Knee Deep Charters out of the Geiger Key Marina in the Lower Keys and came home with buckets full of snapper. Capt. Moe Mottice, of Moes Custom Charters at the dock at Turtle Kraals in Key West, caught large lane and mangrove snapper, bluefish and sharks on the gulf wrecks using lots of chum and cut baits. Mixed in were mackerel, cobia and throw-back grouper. On the flats, Mottices anglers had a blast with sharp nose and nurse sharks, along with kingfish and bonito. In Hawk Channel and on the patch reefs, the yellowtails and mangroves were biting well on cut baits. And on the warmest day of the week, the tarpon were eager to eat their baits in the inner harbor, giving his clients an early shot at the silver king.Casting contestCapt.

Weve lost a lot of close games so it felt really good to win one, said Cane head coach Jay Sanderson. After a hectic week with three games in five days, the Canes found themselves locked in a 46-46 tie at the end of regulation at Barrington. The Cane defense slowed the quick, run-andgun Falcons while the offense went inside to score 12 points in the four-minute overtime. We did a better job getting to the basket and finishing when we got there, Sanderson said. Center Will Ismer and guard Alberto Anderson each ended with 15 points, and Terrell Taylor hit double figures with 11. Alex Gomez scored nine points and Hever Viguera added eight.

The Dolphins fell behind 18-3 early but battled back to make it a 28-19 game at halftime. The Crusaders pulled away in the third quarter, forcing turnovers with pressure defense and converting numerous free throws. Still, coach Leslie Lindsey said shes proud of the effort her young Dolphin team put forth. Dade Christian has six seniors, while Marathon has none. The Dolphins have seven regulars that are sophomores or younger. The first time we played these guys, we scored about 22 points, Lindsey said. Theyre a tough team and our girls put up a fight. Freshman JohnNisha Qualls and eighth-grader Amanda Davis led the Dolphins with nine points each. Yailin Nieda and Taja Hidalgo had five points each and Jessica Forest had four. The Dolphins finished the regular season at 6-12 but showed improvement as the year progressed. The girls were 5-4 in the second half of the season. As far intensity, the girls brought everything they had and thats all I can ask for a season. Were definitely getting better, Lindsey said.

Who doesnt know that junk food is bad for you? Its empty calories, puts on the pounds and is awfully, terribly, almost impossibly hard to resist. It turns out, though, that youll buy less junk food if you put away your credit (or debit) card and always pay cash. Thats the finding of a Cornell University study in the Journal of Consumer Research. Unhealthy foods cookies, potato chips, etc. are impulse buys, says study author Manoj Thomas, an assistant marketing professor at Cornell. The pain of paying in cash can curb impulsive urges to purchase such unhealthy food products, he writes. We buy fewer of these vice foods if were paying with real money instead of plastic. When you pay in cash, there is something that makes you feel bad to part with money, says Thomas. And, his study shows, when you feel bad about paying with cash, you start paying more attention to the healthfulness of the food. You start asking yourself, Is this healthy food? Should I be buying it? Participants in one shopping test bought 42 percent more junk food ($14.07) when they paid with a credit card than those paying cash ($9.89). The method of payment didnt make a difference on good-for-you groceries. Both the credit and cash groups spent about $17.50 on virtue products like oatmeal and fat-free yogurt. Thomas isnt saying everyone should stop using credit cards to buy food. But for people who have trouble resisting junk food, going to the bank, getting cash might actually be worth it because it will help them be more healthy.

Following the health fair, the block party will be in the hospital parking lot from 12:30 to 4 p.m. Itll include live music, a barbecue and anniversary cake. The first 500 attending receive a gift. According to state legislative records, Miami Dr. Nathaniel Levin founded what was first known as Overseas Hospital in 1962 with nine beds. In 1966, he sold it to another doctor, Stanford Setnor, who changed its name to Keys Community Hospital and expanded it to 14 beds. Then in 1972, Setnor sold it to American Medical Affiliates, which expanded it to 42 beds. In 1979, when it had failing finances and was in danger of closing, the not-forprofit Keys Hospital Foundation was created and won support for a bond issue that allowed the hospital to remain open; on June 10, 1980, it was christened Mariners Hospital. In December 1994, the hospital became part of Baptist Health South Florida and in 1999, a new Mariners, with 25 beds, opened.Mariners plans health fair, block partyTAVERNIER Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWMariners Hospital at mile marker 91 bayside got its start in 1962 by a Miami docotor.-Nonprofit U launchesAre you a member of a nonprofit group that could use some help achieving your mission? If so, whats called the Nonprofit U of the Florida Keys might be the answer. Launched in November by representatives from 10 nonprofits along with founder Betsy Keteltas of Key Largo, Nonprofit U offers monthly workshops, training and education for nonprofit organizations in such things as grant writing, fundraising and strategic planning. Most nonprofit organizations want to learn about grant writing, corporate sponsorships and 501(c)3 financial literacy, Keteltas says. When these skills develop, nonprofits can better fund their programs, insure sustainability and continue to carry out their work. Among the founding organizations are the Florida Keys Childrens Shelter, the Domestic Abuse Shelter, Hospice of the Florida Keys/Visiting Nurse Association, the Conch Scramble and the new Autism Society of the Keys. Its rare that we are offered the opportunity to share our own best practices with one another and find meaningful avenues for collaborations, says Venita Garvin Valdez, chief executive officer of the Domestic Abuse Shelter. The group meetings have been an unbelievable educational resource for our newly established organization, says Jill Campbell, founder of the Autism Society. The curriculum outline is a perfect launching point for us to learn from those with years of experience. The Nonprofit U of the Florida Keys meets the second Thursday each month from 9 a.m. to noon in the Quarterdeck Room at the Postcard Inn (Holiday Isle Resort, mile marker 84). Coffee and networking begin at 8:30 a.m. Workshop fees are $50 per person or $250 for six consecutive meetings. Those interested can register at www.gogiveco.com or call Keteltas at 923-8097.Groups working together for combined goodCHARITABLE WORKYoull buy less junk food if paying cashCornell study: Paincan halt impulsive urgesMcClatchy-TribuneTO YOUR HEALTHPhoto courtesy McCLATCHY-TRIBUNESnickers are great ask anyone.But if you pay for them with cash,youll likely buy less of them,a new study shows LIVING BRIEFSMarathon Elks,BPW have rummage saleThe Marathon Business and Professional Womens Club and the Marathon Elks are co-sponsoring a rukmage sale Saturday at the Elks Lodge, 8239 Overseas Highway, from 8 a.m. to noon.
