On Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear the case of Shelby County vs. Holder, which seeks an end to the law's Section 5, which requires that any change to voting procedures gets federal approval. Section 5 applies to nine states, 12 cities and 57 counties including Monroe nationwide that in the past have had voting practices that discriminated. Monroe and the other four in Florida Hillsborough, Collier, Hendry and Hardee are under Section 5 because even though the Hispanic population had increased in those areas over the years, ballots weren't printed in Spanish. That's since changed. Any change to voting rules in Section 5 jurisdictions has to receive approval from the U.S. Justice Department or in federal court. For example, a 2010 referendum that saw Keys voters go to a School Board-hired superintendent from an elected one had to pass federal muster. So did new County Commission district boundaries following the 2010 census. "On the most basic level, Section 5 was designed and carefully designed for voting laws from passing in areas that have a demonstrated history in discrimination," said Lee Rowland, democracy counsel for the Brennan Center for Justice at the New York University School of Law. "Of the nine states that are fully covered, six passed laws that restrict voting in the past two years," she said. "These states are continually proving that federal oversight is entirely correct." Shelby County vs. Holder grew out of the Justice Department nullifying a 2008 Calera (Ala.) City Council election because two years earlier, the county had changed district boundaries but didn't submit them for federal approval. That election district previously had been 71 percent black. When redistricted in 2006, the district ended up 23 percent black. Two years later, the black incumbent City Council member in that district lost re-election. "I call it the hammer," Monroe County Elections Supervisor Harry Sawyer said. "That's the hammer the Justice Department has on the cities and the states. If you don't get federal preclearance, the elections after that are like they never happened. That's a very elementary thing. When you redistrict anything, you have to send it to Justice. If you don't, they sue."

Marathon City Council members were scheduled to consider the plan, which would grant Marathon $20 million for sewer work, at the council's Tuesday night meeting. "We are pleased with the approach that is taking shape," Marathon City Manager Roger Hernstadt said before Tuesday's meeting. "This would put us on par with Islamorada, which would be a leveling among the cities and the Monroe County [wastewater] utilities," Hernstadt said. The Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District also is penciled in to receive $50 million from the fiscal year 2013 allocation, which would be the second installment of four grants totaling $200 million pledged to the Keys for sewer construction. The first $50 million approved by the Florida Legislature last spring essentially was split between Monroe County and Islamorada to "jump start" new projects. The county took $30 million toward its $156 million Cudjoe Regional sewer system and Islamorada received $20 million toward its $100 million municipal wastewater efforts. "The way it was proposed last year, the county and Islamorada needed to jump-start their projects," Hernstadt said. "Marathon reluctantly agreed to take a back seat with the commitment that the matter would be addressed in Year 2." State bonds issued as part of the Everglades restoration effort will generate the $200 million in local wastewater funding over four years.

Plans for the new Fire Station No. 2, projected to cost $4.8 million, wavered in past years as the Key West City Commission decided whether to rebuild City Hall and the fire station at Angela and Simonton streets. Ultimately, with that building crumbling and moldy, the City Commission decided to refit Glynn Archer Elementary School on White Street as a city hall, and build a new fire station on Angela. With that, the Key West Planning Board on Thursday will consider applications for a major development plan and variances for the new building. Commissioner Billy Wardlow, a former fire chief who has pushed for the new station since his election to represent District 3 in 2009, says it's long overdue. He recalled how then-City Commissioner Jeremy Anthony started the push for a new station in 1996. "We've got to get this thing done," Wardlow said. "It's something that's very important and has been delayed enough times that it's got to go forward. The building has been in bad shape for years. We can't keep postponing it because it'll just get worse." The current fire station, built in 1962, is at Angela and Simonton. The new station would be moved away from the roads and toward the former site of the Madeline Bean building. Specifically proposed are a 7,926-square-foot, 35-foottall fire station and a 40,720square-foot parking lot. The total area is 1.49 acres. The city wants six variances to land development regulations including open space/landscaping, landscape buffer, perimeter requirements and non-habitable height limits. In the applicable historic zoning district, the maximum allowable height is 25 feet. The existing building was constructed before formalized land development regulations took effect and is considered legally nonconforming.

Turkey with Breads, Caesar Salad, Trimmings, Holiday Pie Who's next with gavel?As it does every November, the Monroe County School Board next week holds an organizational meeting that includes selecting a chairman and vice chairman for the next 12 months. And although with some public bodies it's easy to speculate who will likely hold the gavel because elected officials often indicate intent, the same can't be said for the School Board. Chairman John Dick and Vice Chairman Andy Griffiths have essentially traded off those roles the past six years, with oneterm District 1 member Steve Pribramsky serving once. Formerly there was a rotation system, but that was shelved around 2009 when the district was embroiled in a six-figure financial scandal. "That got broken years ago," Dick said of the rotation. He declined to speculate if he would continue as chairman or someone else would get the slot. "You've got to be careful," he said. "You don't want someone running a meeting that doesn't know how. It all depends on the votes." When the meeting starts, Superintendent Mark Porter will be in charge and take nominations for chairman. Once that's done, whoever is voted in will run the nominations and voting for vice chairman. "We'll see how it works out," board member Ron Smith said." "I think if John wants it again, he'll get it again," said Griffiths, who will be starting his sixth four-year term in District 2. "I'm just going to show up." Ed Davidson, newly elected District 3 board member, will also be installed. Davidson beat out John Welsh, a former Key West High School principal, to take over the District 3 seat held by two-term incumbent Duncan Mathewson, who didn't run again. At the last organizational meeting, board member Robin Smith-Martin grilled Dick on his leadership plans if he remained as chairman, prompting Dick to respond: "If you're not happy with me, you can vote no." The meeting is set to begin on Nov. 20 at 3 p.m. in the School District administration building on Trumbo Road in Key West.Chairman to be chosen next TuesdaySCHOOL DISTRICTand businesses went into underground septic tanks. However, the islands' rocky foundation and high water levels allow pollutants and nitrogen from underground holding tanks to reach nearshore waters, damaging the marine environment. Improving Keys wastewater treatment has long been acknowledged as a critical step in protecting Keys waters of Florida Bay, the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean all viewed as state and national environmental treasures. The Florida Legislature approved the $200 million for Monroe County in 2008 but only began allocating the money this year. Currently, eight entities in Monroe County are designated to receive a portion of the state wastewater funding if it's continued in 2013. The Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority, working as a partner with Monroe County to manage projects in unincorporated areas, likely will be added to the list this year. The draft 2013 spending plan designates $5 million for the FKAA, largely to finish system work in the Stock Island and Long Key areas. Key West would receive $4 million, and Key Colony Beach would receive $1 million. Key West and Key Colony Beach, which raised money to install their own sewer treatment systems years ago, can use the state funding for system upgrades or stormwater treatment. The draft spending plan aims to prevent squabbling among local governments over the $50 million grant that could delay state approval of the funding. "The idea is that when we all go to Tallahassee for the Legislature's session, all the stakeholders in Monroe County will support the plan," Hernstadt said. "We don't want to create a backlash from the Legislature or Florida Cabinet."Split relies on approvalFrom Sewers,1ADeadline nears for BPmoneyFlorida Keys commercial fishermen who have not settled with BPover damages from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill should gather their paperwork, says a local attorney. "This program for commercial fishermen and commercial fishing-boat owners is very short-lived once the clock starts ticking," said Tavernier attorney Christiana Vaeth, who is married to a fisherman. "Time literally will be of the essence in terms of getting their trip tickets and other documentation together," she said. On Nov. 8 in New Orleans, U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier held a final hearing on whether to approve terms of a massive settlement over ramifications from the spill that stained the Gulf of Mexico. Spill oil apparently never reached Keys waters but demand for regional seafood plummeted over concern about oil pollution possibly affecting finfish and shellfish. Aspecial fund of $2.3 billion has been set aside for seafood-related claims. BPrepresentatives contend that is sufficient since fishing appears to have recovered. Attorneys for fishermen say effects of the spill will not be fully known for years, and that the amount could short-change the industry. Barbier did not issue a ruling but likely will issue an order in the near future to move forward on the settlement plan, according to news accounts. Once that order is issued, fishermen will have just 30 days to file paperwork to get in line for a settlement, Vaeth said.It awaits order from federal judgeDEEPWATER HORIZON DISASTERVeterans reel in fishing benefitFlorida Keys military veterans now have an easier path to joining the commercial fishing industry. Anew program approved by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Gov. Rick Scott drops requirements that veterans must show income from fishing to qualify for restricted-species permits needed by commercial fishermen for most types of food fish. The measure applies to Florida veterans who were or will be honorably discharged between Sept. 11, 2001, to June 30, 2014. Florida veterans with a disability of at least 10 percent, regardless of date of discharge, also can apply. "Spanish and king mackerel, flounder, shrimp, mahi mahi [dolphin] and several reef fish are among the list of species that require a restricted species endorsement," says an FWC report. Lobster and stone crab also are included in the restricted-species waiver, but the act does not bestow any allocation of trap tags needed to fish with lobster traps or stone-crab traps. Tags can be purchased from other fishermen. Generally, fishermen or women seeking restrictedspecies endorsement must have a commercial Saltwater Products License, and be able to document earning $5,000 or 25 percent of their annual income in a recent year to the sale of saltwater fish. The program temporarily removes that requirement for veterans, but veterans who secure endorsements must meet the income requirement after one year of fishing. Income requirements are lower for disabled veterans. For details on the program, go to www. myfwc.com/Fishing.

Restivo & Reilly, LLCAttorneys at Law Croce looking to expandBusinessman and parttime Key West resident Pat Croce is poised to expand his food and beverage empire with a deal that would allow him to take over the leases of Turtle Kraals and the Half Shell Raw Bar, popular waterfront restaurants in the Key West Bight. Croce, former owner and president of the Philadelphia 76ers professional basketball team, already owns the Rum Barrel and Island Dogs on Front Street and the Green Parrot and Charlie Mac's on Southard Street. The city owns Turtle Kraals and the Half Shell. Lease transfers will be considered today by the Key West Bight Management District Board in a meeting beginning at 9 a.m. at Old City Hall on Greene Street. Leases on the two buildings, executed in 1997, are now held by Gene Smith's Smithburg Inc. and expire in 2016. The rates include a percentage of gross receipts and are around $20,000 per month. Croce, in an Oct. 29 email to city Senior Property Manager Marilyn Wilbarger, gave his "personal guarantee" that he could comply with the lease terms. "My ability to operate the two properties of interest can be supported by my [food and beverage] operations in Key West," he wrote "I keep a firm finger on the pulse of management, marketing and operations." The Bight Management District Board oversees a number of lucrative cityheld leases, including those up for reassignment. That all started in the early 1990s when the area was going through a rocky transition from decades as a commercial fishing hub into an uncertain future. In 1996, drawing on a legislative mechanism to create community redevelopment areas, the city began an aggressive campaign of purchasing buildings in the area, improving them, then leasing the premises out for commercial use. Adecade later, property values had grown more than $100 million. Croce, an avid maritime history buff and collector, formerly operated the Pirate Soul Museum in Key West but moved that to St. Augustine to appeal to more history-oriented travelers than Key West draws.Turtle Kraals, the Half Shell in his plansKEY WESTing window for the Nov. 6 election. The state Legislature changed that last year to eight days, 12 hours a day. Gov. Rick Scott signed off on it. The result statewide: Final Florida totals weren't in until Friday. The American Civil Liberties Union had sued to keep the previous early-voting days and times, and Sawyer signed on as an intervener. "It was federal review of a state statute," said Julie Ebenstein, a Miami-based ACLU lawyer who was involved in that case. "There are local supervisors of elections who are most knowledgeable who were saying this is going to have an impact, and that goes to Section 5." Ultimately, the Justice Department signed off on the fewer early-voting days with longer hours. "As we saw this election, everyone was discriminated against," Sawyer said. "Justice doesn't want to hear that. They want to hear only a minority is being discriminated against." He added, "I really believe the actions of our Legislature and our governor, even if they did get approval from Justice, were wrong. We really do need this kind of oversight right now because our legislators and some of our governors around the country are seeing a way of taking advantage of the election process." The Supreme Court is expected to hear arguments in Shelby County vs. Holder in February or March.Actions wrong'From Voting,1A Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYThe Half Shell Raw Bar,a familiar Key West waterfront beer and seafood joint,is likely to be taken over by Pat Croce, who is also looking to operate the adjacent Turtle Kraals,also a bar and restaurant.Kolhage to be sworn in TuesdayThe first order of business for Monroe County commissioners, meeting Tuesday in Key Largo, will be adding Danny Kolhage to the board. Kolhage, a Democrat who's been county clerk for three decades, won the commission's District 1 seat this summer when no one ran against him and will replace Kim Wigington, who declined to run again. Kolhage's term as clerk doesn't expire until Jan. 8 so his successor, Amy Heavilin, will need to be appointed to fill in the gap. That will be done by Circuit Court Judge David Audlin Kolhage will be sworn into his seat shortly after the 9 a.m. meeting begins at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center at mile marker 102.5. Two incumbent commissioners Sylvia Murphy from District 5 and Heather Carruthers from District 3 also will take the oath of office after drawing no opposition in their bids for four more years. The commission's November meeting was moved up a day, from its normal Wednesday date to Tuesday, because of Thanksgiving on Nov. 22. Items on the Nov. 20 meeting agenda include: Approving recommendations from the county Tourist Development Council to spend $1.09 million to fund 27 events expected to draw visitors. Among those are $50,000 for the new Bogart Film Festival in May; $150,000 for Key West's Fantasy Fest; $120,000 for the Key West superboat races next November; and $60,000 for Naval Air Station Key West's 2013 Southernmost Air Spectacular, featuring the Blue Angels, in March.

EDITORIALGOP needs to see the realityLETTERS TO THE EDITORHelp storm victimsAs the most hurricane-prone state in the nation, Florida is no stranger to recovering from the effects of a hurricane or tropical storm. Now we see the same damage and unthinkable devastation Hurricane Sandy has brought to our neighbors in the Northeast. All across the country, Americans are opening their hearts to help through cash donations, goods and helping hands, as America rebuilds. After a disaster, cash is critical, versatile and immediate. Through cash donations, those affected can receive the aid they need, when they need it. Basic needs have to be met food, water, shelter. Depending on the disaster, relief organizations might have a need for specific products. By sending cash, you can ensure your donation will be effectively utilized to rebuild and recover. Cash also helps the local economy in recovery. When relief organizations are able to purchase needed goods in impacted areas, they support local businesses. This stimulates the local economy and puts people back to work, which is critical to economic recovery. Cash is now easier to donate than ever before. AT&Tand Verizon customers can text to donate $10 to the American Red Cross (text REDCROSS to 90999), Salvation Army (text STORM to 80888) or American Humane Society (text HUMANE to 80888). The donations are simply added to a customer's phone bill. The National Voluntary Organiz-ations Active in Disaster (NVOAD) has a complete list of established relief organizations, which can be broken down by state at www.nvoad.org/donate. Instead of sending goods, consider hosting an event to raise funds, and make a cash contribution. This enables you to organize and be a tremendous help but avoids the cost of shipping and distributing goods that ultimately might not be needed. After a storm, it takes a host of experience and manpower to rebuild. However, it is important that potential volunteers confirm that they are needed before traveling to impacted areas. There will be a need for volunteers to help survivors recover and rebuild for months to come; however, these areas can be very dangerous for volunteers who haven't been trained in response. Potential volunteers can visit www.fema.gov/vol unteer-donate-responsibly for information on voluntary organizations. Connecting with these organizations allows relief efforts to be managed effectively, providing the best help to those communities in need. In Sandy's aftermath, we see Americans picking themselves up and beginning the process of putting lives back together. Whether you choose to help through donating cash or your time and talent, know that you are helping to keep America strong. Bryan W. Koon, director Florida Division of Emergency Management Chester Spellman, CEO Volunteer Florida Fire blamed on propaneState and Monroe County fire marshals are investigating the cause of a Monday night blaze that destroyed a Ramrod Key home, boat, equipment trailer, recreational vehicle and two motorcycles. John and Lisa Sauder, owners of the Anguila Lane home, were awakened just after 1 a.m. Monday by a neighbor who noticed flames spreading to the house from the nearby RV. The trailer that was lost contained many of the Sauder's work tools; he makes boat awnings and covers and she fabricates tuna towers for fishing boats. Sheriff's Office Deputy Anthony Fuentes reported that when he arrived, the house was "fully engulfed in flames." Overall, the damage is estimated at more than $500,000. Although the investigation is not complete, the Sauders speculate the fire started in the RV. "They have been having electrical problems with it," Fuentes wrote, "and were attempting to fix it the night before. [Lisa] Sauder stated she remembers leaving the propane tank valve on the RVopen." The Keys chapter of the American Red Cross responded to help with food, clothing and shelter for the couple.Home,boat, motorcycles all lostRAMROD KEYDucks ready to splash downHistoric Tours of America, which operates sightseeing tourist trolleys in Key West, plans to launch its latest venture, Southernmost Duck Tours, on Monday. The so-called U.S. Coast Guard-approved ducks are amphibious vessels that can travel on both land and in the water. HTAis beginning with one 40-person duck (twoperson crew), and plans to add a second next month. Passengers get on at Front and Duval streets and the Truman Waterfront at the end of Southard Street is where they splash into the water. Another company, Duck Tours Seafari, has a city franchise to operate similar vehicles but hasn't launched yet, apparently because final checks are still being made. Duck Tours sued Key West in 1995, claiming it was denied permission to operate because the city allowed HTAto hold a monopoly on sightseeing transport. The city settled the case in 2010 for $8 million, which includes a franchise to operate. Rides with Southernmost Duck Tours will cost $35 per person.HTA launches amphibious tour vehiclesKEY WEST One of the Southernmost Ducks enters the water during a test run.Keynoter Staff With Obama re-election, insurance for all will remain law of the land and Florida needs to get on boardElections, as it turns out, do matter. Just consider the seesaw turnaround in Florida over the Affordable Care Act. Well, President Obama didn't go away. He won a second term and he even won Florida for the second consecutive time, which must drive the GOPstrategists in Tallahassee to apoplexy. Consider this: Florida was among the lead states challenging the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act. On June 28, one of the most conservative Supreme Courts in recent memory ruled against Florida and the other states challenging the constitutionality of mandatory insurance. Two days later, Gov. Rick Scott issued a strong stand against implementing the federal law and made bogus claims about the cost to Florida taxpayers claims so outrageous that PolitiFact Florida awarded Scott its dreaded "Pants on Fire" label for misstatements and exaggerations. At the time, Scott said he was counting on Mitt Romney to beat the president and repeal the Affordable Care Act. Well, that didn't happen. State lawmakers who didn't learn their lesson from the U.S. Supreme Court ruling continued pressing for a flawed constitutional amendment designed to let Florida opt out of federal health-care reform. Florida voters turned down that crazy idea on the Nov. 6 ballot. By the end of the week, the governor allowed as how "just saying no is not an answer." Indeed. Florida holds the distinction of having the secondhighest percentage of residents who are uninsured (trailing only Texas). When one of the estimated 3.9 million uninsured Floridians needs medical help, they turn to emergency rooms, where the cost inflates our overall health-care expenses (which already rank among the highest per capita in the United States; part of that skewing also reflects Florida's aging demographic which consumes more health-care services per person than states with younger, healthier populations). Florida's incoming Senate president, Don Gaetz (R-Destin), told reporters on Friday that he wants to see lawmakers stop stonewalling: "There needs to be some adult debate between Republicans and Democrats" on finding ways to make the law work. In one of many political ironies from the 2012 presidential contest, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio may just emerge as a Republican political broker on health care. Back in 2008, right before Rubio became state House speaker, he published a book, "100 Innovative Ideas for Florida's Future." In Chapter 8, on "Quality Healthcare at an Affordable Price," Rubio included Idea No. 87 "Florida should launch a marketplace of affordable health insurance." That's exactly what the federal law allows. Florida has until Friday to tell Washington whether it wants to create its own state insurance marketplace or let Florida's uninsured participate in the federal insurance pool. Despite Florida's recalcitrance leading up to the 2012 presidential election, perhaps saner heads emerging in the GOP hierarchy here and we hope in Washington, D.C. will find common ground to move us forward. That would surely qualify as change we can all believe in, regardless of party.

Wednesday,November 14,2012 7A Keynoter KeysNet.com BusinessBeware holiday e-mail scamsMore and more, the holidays can feel too much like a money grab. And it's not just your kids who are finding new ways to get your money. Con artists are cashing in on feelings of good cheer, too. The shipping scam. An e-mail pops up saying that "Your parcel has been returned to the UPS office nearest to you." It asks you to click on the link to provide a mobile number. It has a tracking number. Susan Rosenberg, public relations manager for UPS in Atlanta, said UPS is not going to send an e-mail asking for a cell-phone number out of the blue. Scam artists may phone you to say UPS is waiting to deliver a package but needs your credit card. She said UPS may send official notification messages on occasion but an official UPS e-mail is rarely going to include attachments. Arepresentative will always provide a tracking number, which you can use on the UPS website. But even that can get tricky; one fraud e-mail that a reader saw had a tracking number. Send suspicious UPS email to email@example.com. Don't be scammed out of $150 or more if you get a call about computer tech support. Boots Halstead, 80, took a call from a man in late summer who told her that he was from AMMYY, a software firm. He warned her that her computer had malicious software loaded onto it. "He said it would be dangerous for me to use my computer and it was hacked," she said. Halstead, who lives in Lansing, Mich., told the man to call back when her daughter was home. Unfortun-ately, the daughter who knows more about computers found the man's warnings believable. She logged into the computer, spent some time following the man's directions and then he asked for her credit card number. That's when the daughter realized it was a scam. She did not give the credit card number. She later paid a legitimate outfit to clean up the computer mess created during her encounter with fake tech support. The Federal Trade Commission announced a crackdown last month on six alleged tech support scams. Thousands of consumers were allegedly tricked into paying for removing bogus viruses. Scammers were charging $49 to $450 for services. Don't let the Grinch steal the spirit of giving. Scammers create fictitious charities, including "Sandy scams." Fake victims of disasters attempt to use social media to dupe generous people. The same is true around the holidays. Don't donate to unknown individuals who need help buying gifts and post their financial troubles online. Be careful if you get a text that's allegedly from your bank. Plenty of people sign up for bank text alerts, but scam artists are texting, too. Experts warn that scam artists imply the message is urgent and you must take action before your account is disabled. Call your financial institution before giving any information or clicking a link. Yes, Virginia, scammers can wear red suits, too. The Better Business Bureau warns consumers to stay away from any e-mails that involve Santa especially if Santa is asking for your bank account information. Multiple domain names are registered to the name Santa Claus. Limit personal information children share. And make sure there's no adult content on the site or via links. During past holiday seasons, some consumers complained of being duped after paying $45 for a phone call from Santa. So what to do? Most likely, you did not win a free Apple iPad 3. Bogus e-mails are claiming to be from Google's Gmail provider. The Better Bus-iness Bureau warns that you don't want to click to claim a "prize." If you're traveling during the holidays, the BBB says be wary of unexpected "cancellation" notices via email or text. Some scam artists use them to trick you into clicking unsafe links. Do not broadcast your travel plans online. Crooks can use Facebook to find empty homes. Know who you are dealing with when shopping online. Try out a phone number before you order to see if you would actually get a service representative. Bankers suggest using one dedicated credit card for online purchases to monitor statements and spot discrepancies. Don't save time by shopping or banking online if you are working out of an unsecured Wi-Fi network at an airport or hotel. Be ready for the regular seasonal flurry of "hacking holiday e-cards," according to the BBB. Do not click on links or attachments in ecards and other holiday greetings from unfamiliar senders. Get those spam filters ready.Many prey on season's good cheerBy SUSAN TOMPORDetroit Free PressCONSUMERSReport: U.S. to lead oil productionThe U.S. will become the world's top producer of oil within five years, a net exporter of the fuel around 2030 and nearly self-sufficient in energy by 2035, according to a new report from the International Energy Agency. It's a bold set of predictions for a nation that currently imports some 20 percent of its energy needs. Recently, however, an "energy renaissance" in the U.S. has caused a boost in oil, shale gas and bio-energy production due to new technologies such as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. Fuel efficiency has improved in the transportation sector. The cleanenergy industry has seen an influx of solar and wind efforts. By 2015, U.S. oil production is expected to rise to 10 million barrels per day before increasing to 11.1 million barrels per day by 2020, overtaking second-place Russia and frontrunner Saudi Arabia. The U.S. will export more oil than it brings into the country in 2030. Around the same time, however, Saudi Arabia will be producing some 11.4 million barrels per day of oil, outpacing the 10.2 million from the U.S. In 2035, U.S. production will slip to 9.2 million barrels per day, far behind the Middle Eastern nation's 12.3 million barrels per day. Iraq will exceed Russia to become the world's secondlargest oil exporter. At that point, real oil prices will reach $125 a barrel. By then, however, the U.S. won't be relying much on foreign energy, according to the IEA's World Energy Outlook. Globally, the energy economy will undergo a "sea change," according to the report, with nearly 90 percent of Middle Eastern oil exports redirecting toward Asia. "No country is an energy island, and the interactions between different fuels, markets and prices are intensifying," according to the report. And what of energy-efficiency efforts? Fossil fuels, which enjoyed a 30 percent jump in subsidies last year to $523 billion worldwide, will still surpass renewable energy sources, according to IEA. But so-called green power will become the world's second-largest form of generation within three years and will threaten coal's supremacy by 2035. That progression, however, "hinges critically on continued subsidies" for wind, solar and biofuel technologies, which last year amounted to some $88 billion and needs to reach $4.8 trillion through 2035, according to IEA. Even then, however, "the world is still failing to put the global energy system onto a more sustainable path," according to the report. Global energy demand will boom by 2035, rising to 99.7 million barrels a day from 87.4 million last year. China's demand will rise 60 percent in that period; India's will more than double. Demand in developed countries will increase just 3 percent, with the desire for oil and coal losing share in the overall energy mix. Energy-related carbon dioxide emissions will creep up, causing a longterm average temperature increase of 3.6 degrees Celsius, or 6.5 degrees Fahrenheit. Energy production will continue to suck at the world's water resources it already accounts for 15 percent of total water use.It also says exports will top importsBy TIFFANY HSULos Angeles TimesENERGY Nonprofits find tough roadFeeding South Florida needed a fresh way to raise awareness about hunger. Enter the graffiti artists. With a wall in the hip Wynwood neighborhood now devoted to the cause, the Pembroke Park-based organization in Miami-Dade has become a prime example of the lengths nonprofits are going to as need grows, traditional support shrinks and competition for dollars heats up. "In the past, we did things very traditionally," said Diana Brooks, an advertising company owner who became the organization's board chairwoman in July. "We said, How can we think outside the box and really make some noise?'" Along with the Wynwood mural, Feeding South Florida launched a Halloween-themed campaign on e-mail and social media featuring scary images, "scarier" facts about hunger and a link to donate money. The effort brought in more than $5,000 in three days, Brooks said, and drew interest from people who wanted to know more about the organization. As some avenues of support for the organization's mission have decreased, Brooks said standing out among the crowd has become essential. And nonprofits are under increasing scrutiny from donors who want to make sure they're giving to the groups that will best maximize their money. "When you have over 10,000 nonprofits fighting for the same bucket, you have to get a lot more creative in other revenue streams," Brooks said. Charitable giving in America took a dive in 2008 and 2009, about 13 percent combined, said Tim Seiler, a professor of philanthropic studies and director of the Fund Raising School at Indiana University's Center on Philanthropy. For the past two years, the trend reversed, but the increases have been tiny. "Those increases are a positive indicator that suggest that people want to be generous to the degree that they can even when times are tough," Seiler said. Still, he said, experts predict it will take another four or five years for giving to reach pre-recession levels. With funding cuts a way of life, many organizations are trying to offset the growing demands on their resources by new fundraising avenues. 2-1-1 Broward, a 24-hour resource that provides information on health and human services as well as crisis counseling, started the Non-Profit Academy Awards in 2011 to raise money and reward deserving organizations in the county. "There is actually a red carpet," said president and CEO Sheila Smith. "We actually had live gold-painted statues."Keys honorsThe Community Foundation of the Florida Keys does a similar thing, hosting what it calls its Unsung Heroes banquet in Key West each January to honor those who go above and beyond for Keys nonprofits. The Miami Foundation, which creates charitable funds for donors based on their interests, is trying to stir up interest with a new initiative called Give Miami Day. On Dec. 12, from midnight to midnight, donors will be able to choose from a long list of participating nonprofits online that they can research and support. The foundation will have a matching program in place. "We're just encouraging people to look at philanthropy differently and not necessarily think you have to subscribe to the same old ways of raising money," said communications officer Matthew Beatty. "Obviously, you're going to have to make more of an impact and stand out a little bit more if you trying to raise money in a difficult economy."Increasingly, groups try to grow donorsHANNAH SAMPSONhsampson@MiamiHerald.comPHILANTHROPY

Plans call for a $670,000, nine-month enhancement to public spaces along Caroline including road and drainage improvements, new sidewalks and streetlights, the addition of several crosswalks, new trash and recycling containers, improved signs and landscaping. Weekley has held two other public sessions on this topic and hopes to iron out sticking points as plans will soon be presented to the city's Planning Board and City Commission for approval. "Because there's still some issues that haven't been resolved for all the stakeholders," Weekley said, "I thought this would be an opportune time to get everyone together so we could move forward without having a lot of objection to the plan." Tonight's session starts at 6:30 p.m. at the city's Ferry Terminal at Caroline and Grinnell streets. Weekley said some Caroline Street business owners have objected to plans to remove streetside metered parking to make way for a bicycle path. "They want people to be able to park their cars there and that needs to be looked at," he said. However, he noted those spaces in question are immediately adjacent to a large city-run parking lot and at the end of Caroline at the intersection with Grinnell Street, there's a three-story parking deck. The proposal calls for sidewalks 8.5 feet wide on the south side of the street and 5.5 wide on the north side. Work will take place on Caroline between Elizabeth and Grinnell, and on Trumbo Road between Grinnell and the entrance to U.S. Coast Guard Sector Key West. If approved, money for the project will come out of the city's tax increment fund. Beginning in 1996, city officials created the Community Redevelopment Agency to oversee the Key West Bight, Caroline Street Corridor, Trumbo Road and non-contiguous parts of Bahama Village that were designated as blighted. With that label, 1996 became the baseline. Any tax revenue generated based on the increase in property values above that baseline is collected and then reinvested in the area through the TIF; the most recent tax cycle generated $720,000, which includes the needed $670,000. There are a number of other major developments in the works for Caroline Street. Developer Conch Harbor Retail Center LLC wants to transform a portion of 951 Caroline St. into a 13,500square-foot West Marine store. And Pritam Singh, the developer behind Truman Annex, has received approval to build a 96-room hotel on the site of the former Jabour's Trailer Court. There are also plans from business partners Chris Schultz and Todd Manuel to turn the old Waterfront Market into a microbrewery, pub, restaurant and music venue.Bike path would replace some parkingKEY WEST Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYSeveral public and private infrastructure plans are poised to make significant aesthetic changes to the familiar view down Caroline Street,including new sidewalks,crosswalks and a hotel.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comApparent suicide cites electionAKey West man who told his partner that "if Barack gets re-elected, I'm not going to be around" was found dead on Nov. 8, with the words "FObama!" scrawled on his will and two empty prescription bottles nearby. Henry Hamilton, 64, owner of Tropical Tan off Duval Street, was "very upset about the election results," his partner Michael Cossey told Police Officer Anna Dykes. Police spokeswoman Alyson Crean said a cause of death is awaiting autopsy results from the Monroe County Medical Examiner's Office but said, "There's absolutely no evidence of foul play." According to Dykes' report, Cossey returned to the South Roosevelt Boulevard condo he shared with Hamilton after a late night of playing cards with friends and fell asleep on the couch around 6 a.m. Afriend of Hamilton had been worried about him and had a standing request to police to make welfare checks. Officer Pablo Rodriguez did just that and when he went to the condo, he woke up Cossey, prompting the discovery of Hamilton's body in the bedroom. Dykes reported finding two empty prescription bottles, one for Xanax and one for Seroquel, used to treat anxiety and schizophrenia, respectively. Cossey told police Hamilton "has been very stressed about his business," and the last time they had spoken was "when we watched the election results" on Nov. 6.

"Jasmine is a special player," Hurricane head coach Tom Anagnost said. "She can do things that most cannot do." Paterson, a four-year standout for the Coral Shores team coached by her father, Arthur Paterson, was the only UM player picked by ACC coaches for the AllFreshman roster. The Hurricanes (9-7-4) finished their fall season Saturday, losing to the ranked University of Central Florida on overtime penalty kicks in the first round of the NCAADivision 1 Women's Soccer Tournament. The Canes went 4-4-2 in the rugged ACC, which sent a nation-high nine teams into the NCAA playoffs. Paterson ended the year as the Miami assist leader with three, and scored two goals. Her second goal sealed a win over North Carolina State. Aforward, Paterson tied for second on the squad team in points (goals plus assists). She was in the starting lineup since the seasonopening match and started 15 games before being slowed by a late-season injury. She played 39 minutes in the tournament contest. "The sky's the limit for Jasmine if she puts her mind to it," said Arthur Paterson. "We're also very proud that she's doing so well academically." The UM head coach does not dispute that assessment. Jasmine "is learning how to work hard all the time and is gaining a stronger mentality," Anagnost said. "Continued improvement in these areas could make her one of Miami's all-time greats."UM freshman is named to all-star rosterCOLLEGE SOCCERLopez scores 3 TDs in winAmid the festivities of homecoming and that burning desire to go out a winner, the Key West High School football team's season ended Friday night with a 39-20 victory over Forest Hill at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium. Senior Norman Lopez, in his final game, scored three touchdowns for the Conchs, who finished 6-4 in Johnny Hughes'first season as coach, though they fell short of making the state playoffs. Key West, playing against a team from West Palm Beach with only one victory, had a rocky beginning in the first quarter, the most bizarre period of the season. With penalty flags being thrown on almost every play of the Conchs'opening drive, three touchdowns, including a 45-yard run by senior quarterback Donald Roberts, were nullified before Lopez finally scored on an eight-yard run for a 70 lead. Before the first quarter, which lasted 43 minutes, was over, the Conchs scored again on a 17-yard pass from sophomore running back Jeffery Anilus to senior Zjiavon Green to make it 13-0. The second quarter was scoreless until Lopez ran for a 17-yard TD with 52 seconds left. Then, after Forest Hill coughed up the ball on the ensuing kickoff, senior Elliott Valdez, closing out a big-yardage season, ran in from four yards out with five seconds remaining. The 26-0 halftime lead would have been more had not the Conchs lost a fumble on the Falcons'1-yard line. After halftime, during which Clare Kehoe, in a dazzling white gown that matched her smile, was crowned queen, the Conchs immediately gave up two touchdowns the second one after a successful onside kick. The lead was down to 26-14. But Lopez scored his third touchdown (and fifth in his past two games) on a 43-yard run that made it 3214. Key West's final score came on a 52-yard run by junior Deonte Stemage. "After that onside kick, we woke up again," said Hughes. When Hughes was hired last spring to replace his uncle, Jerry Hughes, he raised eyebrows when he announced the team would switch from a shotgun spread formation to a triple option. It did not receive favorable reviews after the annual spring game, but the Conchs persevered. "The biggest thing about this season was how the team accepted [the triple option] and started to excel at it," Hughes said. "It was quite a change for them." After Friday's, there was a little ceremony in the Conchs'locker room. The seniors put their red jerseys in the laundry basket for the last time. "They realized how fast it goes," Hughes said. "It's always emotional."Conchs end 6-4 in Hughes' first seasonKEY WEST 39,FOREST HILL 20 Photo by BERT BUDDEKey West senior Norman Lopez scores one of his three touchdowns against Forest Hills Friday night.By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org PATERSONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comSee Basketball,2BCane swimmers place in stateCoral Shores High's boys swimmers scored one Top 10 finish at the Florida Finals Class ASwimming and Diving Championships Saturday in Orlando.

Jacksonville's Bolles dominated the meet, scoring new national prep records in both the 200 freestyle relay (1:19.27) and the 400 freestyle relay (2:54.43). The Coral Shores quartet took 11th in the 400 relay, swimming a 3:20.2. Zekthi (1:43.26) and Santiesteban (1:43.37) finished 11th and 12th, respectively, in the individual 200 freestyle. Santiesteban, a senior, swam the 50 freestyle in 48.46 seconds, good for 13th in the state. Coral Shores freshman Miles Miller claimed the 11th spot in one-meter springboard diving among two dozen athletes.Other sportsCoral Shores'girls took a 4-0 loss at district powerhouse Gulliver Prep on Friday.

The Canes were missing standout Iris Dunn, sitting outOverall, Coral Shores finishes 13thUPPER KEYS See Swimmers,2BRaiders shut out Lady ConchsAt 5-foot-10 tall for a high school girl soccer player Gulliver Prep's Kai-Lin Hernandez stood out from the outset of Saturday afternoon's match against Key West at the Conchs'breezy Back Yard field and not just because of her height. Asenior defender, she displayed dazzling skills as the undefeated Raiders shut out the Conchs, 3-0. There was her passing she set up teammate Samantha Lujan for the first goal. There were her foot skills soon after Lujan's goal, Hernandez appeared ready to launch a kick from 20 yards out, but then, in what she termed a "dramatic motion," she faked the kick, sidestepped her defender and got the ball to Vanessa Martinez, who scored to make it 2-0. And there was her kicking and throwing she booted the ball 50 yards and her overhead throw-ins traveled a good 20 yards. "I've been working on that for a year," she said. "My goal is always the back post." She dominated the game, but the Conchs did not go down easily. Keeper Angela Martin, a slender blonde figure in a bright green shirt, was kept busy in the first half by an onslaught of shots on goal (which she dove face-first into the grass to stop) and by a steady stream of corner kicks (which she soared high to catch). Then there was sophomore defender Selyne Casas clinging to Gulliver's white-uniformed players like a second skin. Her performance didn't go unnoticed by coach Scott Paul, who said afterward, "She's easily our defensive MVPat this point." Gulliver led at the half, 2-0, and went up 3-0 early in the first half when Madeline Intriago scored on a three-on-one breakaway. Martin was injured on the play and was replaced by freshman Gabby Pozzi,1-3 squad takes on Fins on ThursdayKEY WEST SOCCER Photo by BERT BUDDEKey West keeper Angela Martin leaps to catch a Gulliver Prep corner kick Saturday.Conch defender Selyne Casas is in the foreground as Raider Samantha Earle tries for a header.By DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorSee Soccer,2BBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org

The Lady Eagles are on the road for two games this week.Teams busyFrom Swimmers,1BKeys thick with winterspeciesOur wintertime visitors are showing up in force now, with everyones favorite, the sailfish, here in big numbers. At the very least, you can expect to raise a few sailfish and perhaps even land a couple. Most are found just off the edge of the reef in 100 to 130 feet of water but, on some days, theyre right on the reef spraying ballyhoo. Abundant quantities of blackfin tuna as well as some rather nice-size dolphin are mixed in with the sailfish. Also arriving from the north are the king mackerel. Live bait is the secret for the kingfish, preferably live ballyhoo and pilchards, although fourto six-inch blue runners will do the trick on occasion. Dangling goggle eyes or blue runners from a kite will also serve you well. On the wrecks, mutton snapper continue to bite well with live pilchards, ballyhoo or pinfish working best. Heaps of jack crevalle will keep you entertained between mutton bites. An, were starting to see a few cobia on the deeper wrecks. The yellowtail snapper bite remains consistent on the reef, with the best fishing in the 35to 60-foot areas. If youre hunting for flags, continue out to the 70to 90-foot range. Mixed in are lots of medium-size mutton snapper plus good-size black and red grouper. Use a larger live bait, such as a justlegal snapper, grunt or big pinfish. The patch reefs offer a ton of action from Spanish, cero and king mackerel, keeper mangrove, yellowtail and the occasional mutton snapper. The fishing pace is really gaining momentum in the bay and around the bridges. Snapper of all varieties are shifting from summer to winter homes, and the bridge areas are a hard place to beat to intercept them. Working best are shrimp, pilchards or small pinfish on a three-eighths to halfounce jig head. Farther out in the bay, especially in the Middle Keys, there are good numbers of Spanish mackerel. All it takes is shrimp, pilchards or cut bait such as chunks of pinfish. When targeting any of the mackerels, be sure to use a small trace of wire to prevent biteoffs. Lighter wire, such as No. 4, is best.The weeks bestIslamoradas Capt. Greg Poland had a memorable week. First he fished with 13year-old Max Toscano and his dad from Darien, Conn. They caught bonito in the backcountry and used them as bait to catch sharks, including a 10-foot lemon. Then he joined the anglers aboard the Kalex with Capt. Alex Adler, where Max landed his first, second and third sailfish of his life and topped off the experience with big dolphin. Then, along with Capt. Matt Bellinger and in conjunction with the Jose Wejebe Spanish Fly Memorial Foundation and Make-A-Wish, Poland hosted Tyler Murdoch and his family as part of their week of fishing, exploration and good old-fashioned fun in the Florida Keys sun. Plantation Boat Mart donated a 32-foot Sea Hunter for the day, Coach Jimmy Johnson gave Tyler a football and artist Wyland gave him a book. At Captain Pips Marina and Hideaway in Marathon, Murrells Inlet, S.C., anglers Jenn and Rob Faro, Christine Beuchert and Denise Barnes fished a half day on the reef aboard the Papa Pips with Capt. Bob Kidwell and mate Neil Apley. They brought back a nice bunch of yellowtails and big smiles. Capt. Chris Johnson is a member of the Yamaha National Fishing Team and specializes in offshore, gulf/bay, reef/wreck, shark and tarpon fishing with SeaSquared Charters out of the 7 Mile Marina in Marathon. You can reach him at 743-5305, Sea Squared@bellsouth.net and www.SeaSquared Charters.com .Not snowbirds, but a variety of tasty fishFISHING THE FLORIDA KEYSNew coach leads Lady ConchsTony McDowell will make his debut as the Key West High girls basketball coach at 6 p.m. Thursday when the Conchs play Marathon at the Bobby Menendez Gym. Im not excited yet, but Im OK, McDowell said Monday. McDowell, the Conch boys JVcoach last season and a former assistant with the girls team, was named coach in August. He succeeded Tez Waters, who coached last season until illness forced her to step down. The Conchs were 7-6 last season, losing to Ransom Everglades in the first round of the state playoffs. The top scorers on that team, Shaniya Watson and Alexsa Rahming, graduated. McDowell said the team will be led by seniors Mikayla Stansbury and Jamica Mack. Stansbury is the point guard and has three years of experience. Mack, the tallest Conch, has the potential to score 20 points a game, McDowell said. Other players to watch include Tenisha Multy, who will share time with Stansbury at the point, and freshman Janeyn Sim, a quick guard. The defense concerns me, McDowell said. Were going to have to play defense, rebound and make layups. We dont have many shooters. The Conchs played two pre-season games over the weekend in Marathon, defeating Coral Shores, 5620, and losing to Southridge, 44-37. The team chemistry appears to be good. They pass the ball to each other, McDowell said. He knows he faces a challenge in his first year. These are young kids learning how to play basketball, He said. But we should be all right.Basketball team hosts the DolphinsPREP HOOPSketball. There will be conditioning work this week. The Lady Dolphins, returning the bulk of the roster intact from last years 6-13 campaign, got a balanced scoring attack to trip Coral Shores, 34-24. Shooting guard Jessica Forward and forward Yailin Nieda each scored nine points for Marathon. Johnisha Qualls and Gardine Raymond each scored six and Amanda Davis added four. The Lady Hurricanes got 11 points from Alexis Tarafa and five from Brooklyn Irwin. Mackenzie Laack, Samantha Hickory and Jackie Boyle rounded out the Cane scoring for new head coach Jessica Wood. Marathon stayed close to a big-school team from Southridge but fell, 44-33. That did not satisfy Lindsey, who expects her still-young squad to make waves this winter. That was the first time weve played a team that was just scrappier than we were, and being scrappy is something we pride ourselves on, the coach said. We played a solid manto-man, half-court defense led by Jessica and Johnisha, Lindsey said. But we got beat on fast break and transition plays. Nieda scored 11 points against Southridge, with Qualls hitting for nine. Forrest netted seven points. I started with a lot of these girls when they were in seventh grade, Lindsey said. Now were not only holding our own, but doing with a young group of players. The Dolphins travel to Key West for the regularseason opener at 5 p.m. Thursday, then return after the Thanksgiving break. Also in the tournament, Key West topped Coral Shores, 56-20. The Lady Conchs stayed close to Southridge in a 44-37 loss.Lindsey wants more conditioningFrom Basketball,1B K E Y S D E R M A T O L O G YA d v a n c e d D e r m a t o l o g y & C o s m e t i c S u r g e r y ( A D C S C l i n i c s ) A c q u i r e s T h e K e y s D e r m a t o l o g y P r a c t i c e o f D r K a r e n W e i s m a n tl e W h o h a s R e t i r e d ADCS Clinics (ADCS),the nations largest dermatology practice,is pleased to announce it has completed the acquisition oftwo clinics in the Florida Keys from the practice ofDr.Karen Weismantle who retired November 6th.The clinics are located in Islamorada and Marathon,Florida.

Wednesday,November 14,2012* 3B Keynoter KeysNet.com Living 35th AnnualSat., Nov. 17, 2012 Sat., Nov. 17, 2012 Hidden'sheds light on needyWe've all seen them up and down the Keys the down and out with nowhere to live. Well, the Studios of Key West wants to change your impression of Monroe County's homeless. From Thursday through Dec. 14, the art enclave at 600 White St. exhibits "Hidden in Plain View: Faces and Stories of Homelessness." Erika Biddle developed it with photography by Sheelman Sheelman. Biddle says she initially set out to create a community garden. But after touring soup kitchens and shelters, the effort grew into "Hidden in Plain View." "Acommunity garden offers a place where people can learn to cultivate food, a place where they can go for rest and for sustenance," she said. "But on a more fundamental level, it offers a way for people who are on food stamps to enhance the variety and freshness of their food." "We live in a place that emphasizes the importance of One Human Family, but what does that really mean?" she asked. "I wanted to put a challenge to those of us who simply look the other way when confronted with the homeless; I wanted to give the homeless an identity, and bring them into the public eye." Sheelman shot the two dozen photos comprising the exhibit. Each is 24 inches by 30 inches, and black and white. Biddle, meanwhile, asked homeless people for sketches, poems and quotes about their lives. Those accompany the exhibit, as do sketches and poems from a dozen local artists. "I ended up with a pile of beautiful snippets," says Biddle. Additionally, four Monroe County School District students created their own interpretations of homeless children. The young artists are Meredith Delostrinos, second grade; Anna Schneider, fifth grade; Willow Wood, fifth grade; and Bridget Martin, fifth grade. An opening reception is set for Thursday at the Studios from 6 to 9 p.m.New exhibit about homeless opens ThursdayKEY WESTPhoto by PETE BACHELERMilitary veterans were honored over the weekend as part of Sunday's Veterans Day.Events included a Sunday observance in Islamorada that includes Long Key resident Joe Hanak (left),a veteran of the battle for Iwo Jima in World War II,with fellow veteran Glenn Taylor of Islamorada.Photo by PETE BACHELERSimon Miller,a Royal Marines commando who served in Iraq and Afghanistan from 2002 to 2004,speaks at an event hosted by Islamorada Fire Rescue at Station 20.

Publication every Wed. and Sat. and now online at www.keysnet.com EXAMPLE How to be like Bond, James BondBrand-name shoutouts and high-profile product placement are as much a part of 007 movies as Bonds tuxedo or Qs gadgetry, and with Skyfall in theaters at the same time the film franchise marks its 50th anniversary, its never been easier for fans to live and let buy into the brand James Brand. Heineken: Despite shaking and stirring the ire of 007 enthusiasts, Skyfall is far from the first time the martini-loving Bond and beer share the big screen for that youd have to go back to 1962s Dr. No, in which Sean Connery appears with a bottle of Jamaicas Red Stripe. And yes, Bond not only quaffs a bottle of the Dutch brew in the new movie, a tuxedo-wearing Daniel Craig also appears in a Heineken TVcommercial, reportedly part of a $45 million deal between the studio and the brewer. (Our only question? Why no licensed to chill tag line?) James Bond 007 Signature Fragrance: The film franchises first licensed mens fragrance rolled out to retail last month (the first womens scent, Bond Girl 007, was released in 2008 to coincide with Quantum of Solace). Touted as dangerously sophisticated, the scent profile of James Bond 007 is described as having a backbone of rich, reassuringly elegant lavender with undertones of moss and coumarin ... with traces of vetiver, crisp apple and sandalwood. After one whiff, we decided that if James Bond were real, this is exactly what his pocket-square drawer would smell like. And no, Q Branch has not rigged the bottle to double as a flamethrower. (James Bond 007 eau de toilette, 30 ml and 50 ml for $30 and $40 respectively at Kohls stores and online at www.kohls.com Omega: Skyfall marks the seventh film in which Bond has an Omega watch strapped to his wrist, and this time he wears not one but two different models, a black-dialed Planet Ocean 600M and a Seamaster Aqua Terra with a blue dial. (Omega is selling Planet Ocean Skyfall in a limited edition of 5,007 for $6,500 each.) OPI: Amerchandise tie-in with nail-lacquer brand OPI may seem like a head-scratcher until you consider the number of women who have tried to sink their talons into Bond over the years. In October, OPI released a limited-edition, 12-color Skyfall collection inspired by various Bond films. Two of those shades were also used to create Berenice Marlohes two-tone manicure for the movie; the tops of the fingernails painted a maroon hue called Skyfall, and the underside of each nail painted a glittery gold shade dubbed GoldenEye. ($8.50 at OPI retailers.) Orlebar Brown: What is it about James Bond and the parade of pale-blue swim trunks? In 1964s Thunderball, Sean Connery famously sported a pair of Sunspel trunks. In 2006s Casino Royale, Daniel Craig strode out of the surf clad in a barely there pair by La Perla. Six years later, in Skyfall, costume designer Jany Temime chose a powder-blue pair of Orlebar Browns short, retro-style Setter swim trunks in a blink-and-youll-miss-it pool scene, specifically as an homage to Connerys original trunks. ($230 at www.orlebarbrown.com) Swarovski: Swarovski and British jewelry designer Stephen Webster designed a Skyfall-themed collection, several pieces of which are worn by Berenice Marlohes Severine in the films casino scene, including an eyecatching pair of long, rhodium-plated black bamboo earrings and matching pendant.

Of the 24, eight plan to go into law enforcement and 16 into corrections. In addition, six graduated from the colleges Institute for Public Safety in the Upper Keys the previous week. Upon passing their respective state certification exams, the graduates will become Florida police or corrections officers. Corrections Academy 46 was the first one in which 100 percent of its initial class completed the 420hour training. Through a partnership with the Monroe County Sheriff Office, all 16 graduates will be employed as detention deputies at one of the three Keys jails. Among graduates, Aaron Coller and John Rhoades were recognized for academic excellence, and Jeremy Tellier and Denise Dery received the Top Gun award for superior shooting skills. The college is now accepting applications for its Basic Law Enforcement Academy that begins in January. The parttime/night-time programs will run weekdays from 6:15 to 10:30 p.m. on the Stock Island campus and at the Upper Keys Center at Coral Shores High School.

Based on the last 50 years, here are a few pointers that might help an aspiring Bond girl get a leg up on the competition. Pick a memorable moniker Take a clue from Honey Ryder and Pussy Galore, Plenty OToole and Holly Goodhead (excuse me, thats Dr. Holly Goodhead). Potential vixens and villainesses should choose a punny, sexually suggestive-sounding name. Theres a good reason no one remembers any Bond girl named Lisa. No license to grill. You never ever see a Bond girl cooking, points out Skyfall costume designer Jany Temime. They just dont do that. They are dressed to kill or to seduce or make love. Thus, Temimes inspiration for the costumes worn by Skyfalls Severine (Berenice Marlohe): The femme fatales of s Hollywood, particularly actress Ava Gardner. Weakness makes a strong bond. The Bond girls that have been the strongest have been the least popular, especially the ones that were on equal footing with Bond, such as May Day [played by Grace Jones] in View to a Killand Michelle Yeoh (who played Wai Lin) in Tomorrow Never Dies, observes Rob Weiner, co-editor of James Bond in World and Popular Culture: The Films Are Not Enough. Weiner does point out that Bond girls have changed, if slowly, over the years and are far from one-dimensional damsels in distress. I think its important, especially in todays climate, to have a strong Bond girl who can hold her own against 007, he says. Amodicum of Spandex From the moment Ursula Andress waded ashore in a soaking two-piece in Dr. No, it became clear that the best way to get Bonds attention was to wear a bikini. The list of those who memorably went to two-pieces for 007 include Claudine Augers Domino Derval (Thunderball), Britt Eklands Mary Goodnight (The Man With the Golden Gun) and Halle Berrys Jinx Johnson (Die Another Day), whose orange Eres bikini and strappy white belt and knife ensemble was a clear homage to Andressbarely dressed Honey Ryder. Dont put gold on that finger. Although the life expectancy of a Bond playmate can fluctuate wildly from movie to movie (with Jill Mastersons death by skin suffocation perhaps the gold standard of an early exit), saying I do can prove even more deadly. Case in point: The late Tracy Bond (played by Diana Rigg in On Her Majestys Secret Service), whose tenure as Mrs. Bond was but a matter of minutes.Attitude and outfits are essentialBy ADAM TSCHORNLos Angeles TimesAT THE MOVIES TOTALNUDITY...

And why not? It's sweet food for a sweet season. Of course, the cookie season can be hazardous to your waistline. If possible, it's best to keep in mind Julia Child's motto: Everythin g in moderation. Go ahead and savor those cookies, just don't be a monster about it. Of course, if you do happen to overdo it, you'll be better off if you snub the usual dou g h boys in favor of a lean and luscious g em like these chocolate-dipped merin g ue drops. Each one is like a candy bar in a cookie suit. The hero of this story? E gg whites. They bind to g ether the other in g redients the coconut and dried cranberries and provide a nice chewy texture, all without addin g any fat. Yes, there's fat in the coconut and the chocolate, but the overall fat and calorie content is lower here than in butterbased cookies. This is one of those recipes for which the fresher the e gg the better. Fresh e gg whites boast more body than older ones, addin g g reater volume and stability to your cookies. The whites and yolks should be separated when the e gg s are cold. But wait until the whites reach room temperature before beatin g them. Thou g h many of us separate e gg whites from yolks usin g the cracked e gg shell halves as little cups, it's safer to employ those even more basic tools your hands. Your hands, unlike those e gg shells, don't have sharp ed g es, which dramatically reduces the possibility of breakin g the yokes. The quickest way to warm your whites to room temperature is to put them in a clean bowl, then put that bowl into a lar g er bowl of hot water. If you don't already own an oven thermometer, you mi g ht consider g ettin g one. These cookies need to be baked at 275, and some ovens just don't work well at such a low temp. Thou g h my own oven needed to be fiddled with a g ain and a g ain, my thermometer kept the job on track.By the way, those of you who re g ularly bake up merin g ues as white as snow should know that this isn't that type of merin g ue. It is meant to be bei g e and chewy, not white and crispy. Likewise, the note of tan g y bitterness provided by the dark chocolate is meant to offset this confection's overall sweetness. The proof, of course, is in the cookie. My dau g hter, who is no fan of coconut, do gg ed these chocolatedipped merin g ue drops. The g oods: One cup dried cranberries. Two cups unsweetened shredded coconut. Four lar g e e gg whites, room temperature. Pinch of salt. Pinch of cream of tartar. Half a teaspoon vanilla extract. One cup su g ar. Six ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped. Heat the oven to 350. Line two bakin g sheets with parchment paper or spray with cookin g spray and dust with flour, shakin g off the excess. In a food processor, pulse the cranberries until finely chopped. Set aside. Spread the coconut on a third bakin g sheet or in a roastin g pan. Bake on the oven's middle shelf until g olden, about five minutes. Let cool. Reduce the oven to 275 Once the coconut has cooled, in a medium bowl combine it with the cranberries. In a lar g e bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the e gg whites with the salt, cream of tartar and vanilla until they form soft peaks. Add the su g ar, two tablespoons at a time, beatin g until stiff peaks form. Fold in the coconut cranberry mixture. Drop rounded tablespoons of the batter, one inch apart, on the prepared bakin g sheets. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the merin g ue drops are bei g e (they will be soft at the center). Put the sheet pans on coolin g racks and let the merin gue drops cool completely. Brin g a small saucepan of water to a g entle simmer. Set a lar g er stainless bowl over the saucepan, then add the chocolate. Heat the chocolate, stirrin g occasionally, until melted. One at a time, dip the bottoms of the cookies into the chocolate, then set chocolate side up on parchment to cool. To set the chocolate faster, the cookies can be refri g erated. Store the cookies in an airti g ht container and refri g erate for up to one week. Start to finish: 55 minutes (30 minutes active). Makes five dozen.

About 450,000 are fatal. People know the usual risk factors for heart attacks smokin g obesity, hi g h blood pressure, hi g h cholesterol and diabetes. But research indicates there could be another risk factor sleep apnea. Accordin g to the National Sleep Foundation, studies show that people with cardiovascular problems such as hi g h blood pressure, heart failure and stroke have a hi g h prevalence of sleep apnea. Whether sleep apnea actually causes heart disease is still unclear. But the foundation said if you have sleep apnea, the probability of developin g hypertension increases si g nificantly. "There is g rowin g evidence of a connection between obstructive sleep apnea and heart disease," said Jeremy Tabak, a pulmonolo g ist on staff at Mariners Hospital in Tavernier. He explained that an apnea is a temporary suspension of breathin g lastin g 10 or more seconds. In sleep apnea, these episodes can occur hundreds of times each ni g ht and are due to obstruction of the airway. In addition to fra g mented sleep, apnea creates a drop in oxy g en levels in the blood. This can lead to increased risk of cardiovascular disease, includin g cardiac arrhythmias and heart attacks. People who have apnea typically experience multiple awakenin g s each ni g ht as a result of the closin g of their airway when they fall asleep. Tabak referred to several studies that link sleep disorders, such as obstructive sleep apnea and sleep-disordered breathin g to an increased risk of hi g h blood pressure. "That's because, in addition to disturbed sleep, apnea sufferers also experience brief sur g es in blood pressure each time they wake up," he said. "Over time, this can lead to the chronic elevation of blood pressure known as hypertension, which is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Fortunately, when sleep apnea is treated, blood pressure may g o down." How do you know if you have sleep apnea? The main symptoms include excessive loud snorin g severe mornin g headaches, reduced alertness, g aspin g for air, wakin g frequently durin g the ni g ht to urinate, daytimefati g ue, lack of ener g y or excessive sleepiness despite g ettin g an adequate amount of sleep (usually seven to ei g ht hours) at ni g ht, poor concentration, for g etfulness and mood chan g es. Sleep apnea can be dia g nosed easily with a sleep study at the Sleep Dia g nostics Center at Mariners Hospital. The tests are customized based on each patient's symptoms and the information the doctor needs to make a dia g nosis. "It may sound trite," Tabak said, "but sufficient sleep is not a luxury. It is a necessity and should be thou g ht of as a vital si g n of g ood health. Treatin g sleep apnea is an easy way for people to reduce their risk for health problems and possibly save their lives."Mari n ers Hospital of Taver n ier, part of Baptist Healt h So u t h Florida, provided t h is as a p u blic service.Lack of it can lead to larger woesTO YOUR HEALTH
