Asoftware developer native to the Keys proposed marriage to his girlfriend during the middle of the 32nd annual Seven Mile Bridge Run Saturday. Marathon High School graduate Jeremy Shinn, 32, was running alongside Amy Gregor, 32. At the top of the span, Shinn suddenly stopped, removed an engagement ring from his pocket and dropped to his knees to pop the question. Runners who passed by clapped and cheered when they saw Shinn proposing to Gregor, a middle-school math teacher, and Gregor saying yes.It was the first-ever marriage proposal during the race.Shinn and Gregor live in Gainesville.Shinn, who grew up in Marathon, had competed in bridge runs previously and Gregor had participated in one bridge run. Shinn said he knew the run was the right opportunity to ask Gregor for her hand in marriage.What other chance would you have to do it at the top of the Seven Mile Bridge than during the run? Shinn said. Were both active runners, doing 5Ks and other races and we both love the Keys. The annual race attracts about 1,500 participants. Shinn said the couple intends to marry before the end of the year. 778679022222 Classifieds . . . . .5B Living . . . . . . .2B Business . . . . . .5A Obituaries . . . . .2A Opinion . . . . . .4A Sports/Outdoors . .1B Crossword . . . . .4BINDEX Printed on 100% recycled newsprint CONTENTS 2013 KEYNOTER PUBLISHING CO.

Story, 1B 4 years on,murder case startsJury selection could be complete today in the murder case of Jonathon Leo LeBaron in whats expected to be a threeto four-week trial at the Freeman Justice Center in Key West. But it could be some time until the trial begins, according to Monroe County State Attorney Catherine Vogel. It could go on for weeks. I tried a case in Miami where we were in jury selection for two weeks, she said. The delay is due in large part to attorneys for both sides being forced to interview large pools of jurors individually. Thats because prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against LeBaron, accused of beating to death 57year-old Richard Gardner in Key West in February 2009. The charge is first-degree murder. Theres also the question of media exposure among prospective jurors.On any high-profile case or one with a lot of media attention, the jurors will be interviewed separately, Vogel said. When you have a juror sitting in the midst of 30 others, they may say something that could taint the others.In addition, potential jurors undergo death qualification in which their willingness to recommend the death penalty is gauged.There are certain questions that get asked in a trial where youre going to seek the death penalty, Vogel said.Chief Assistant Monroe County State Attorney Manny Madruga, who is working with Assistant State Attorney Val Winter, said he plans to call around 40 witnesses, including from Memphis, Tenn., and Midvale, Utah, stops along LeBarons cross-country trek following Gardners death. LeBaron, 36, is accused of killing Gardner on Feb. 10, 2009, aboard Gardners boat at a Stock Island marina. Madrugas chief witness is LeBarons then-girlfriend, Kristen Whitmore, who testified she met Gardner on craigslist and that he paid her for oral sex. She said Gardner invited her to stay on his boat while she was looking for somewhere to live.Instead, Whitmore said sheLeBaron faces death penalty in homicideBy SEAN KINNEY and RYAN McCARTHYskinney@keynoter.comIN THE COURTS LeBARON WHITMOREMARATHON She says I doduring Bridge RunKeys native asks for hand in marriageJeremy Shinn sports the traditional pose when proposing marriage to Amy Gregor Saturday on the hump of the Seven Mile Bridge during Saturdays annual Seven Mile Bridge Run.Shelterchief out, facility quarantinedAn outbreak of whats called kennel cough basically the dog equivalent of whooping cough has forced the quarantine of the Marathon animal shelter and led to the Friday resignation of its director. But the former director, Katie Bentley, says she did nothing wrong and gave good medical care to the animals. She said politics and public relations or the lack thereof led to her resignation in the face of being fired.Friday morning, one of the claims [an employee] made is I denied medical care, Bentley said. This was coming from an employee who hadnt been here a year. For them to say I am denying medical care is false. There were animals that were brought in that were sick and quarantine procedures were not followed, said Sheila Cook, president of the board of Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys, which operates the shelter under a contract with Monroe County.Bentley said it appears a Labrador mix the shelter took in from Dogs on the Move, a Miami rescue group, was the animal that spread the kennel cough. Its been diagnosed with pneumonia. She also said there was no quarantine procedure in place because the shelter is basically one large long room. There are 30 to 35 dogs there now. She said she separated cages using roofing material.I apologized if that was the dog that brought the kennel cough, she said. It was about a month ago. I told this group I could no longer accept animals from this rescue group.Dr. Mike Dunn, a veterinarian whos a nonvoting member of the SHARK board, declined to speak about whether Bentley handled the situation correctly, but said the spread of kennel cough is a real fear. Its really, really contagious between dogs, he said. Like kids at school, one kid comes in with something and then it seeps through the classroom. He said kennel cough technically called tracheal bronchitis is rarely fatal but if it spreads, countless dogs could be affected.

While there have been reports of fishermen seeing and catching great whites in South Florida, it is extremely rare that one is spotted underwater by divers. Certainly looks like a white shark from the picture, said Mahmood Shivji, director of the Guy Harvey Institute at Nova Southeastern University. White sharks are occasionally captured by commercial and recreational fishers in South Florida, including in the Keys, but rarely seen while diving. How cool.

Alarger social media presence, using electric cars, rebranding the agency logo and delivering larvicide via paintball guns were among the 26 potential projects presented by Director Michael Doyle to the Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board Monday in Key West.At Mondays agency board meeting, Doyle received largely positive feedback for the ideas, which he plans to incorporate into the districts three-year strategic plan. The projects were culled from an initial list of more than 500, gathered at a staff-driven sustainability summit last month.The goal is to share ideas from the staff. The hardest work is the six months after because we have to minimize duplication of efforts, Doyle said.The eight main categories were innovative mosquito control methods, community participation, energy efficiency, engagement and empowerment, zero waste, external communication and health, wellness and safety.Groups of Mosquito Control staff, varying from four to 10 members, worked on various potential projects. Doyle said the next step will be to determine when and how various initiatives could take effect. At the next meeting they have, they want to put things into three categories: Things we have money for in the budget right now, things we need to get in the 2013-14 budget if its worth the money in a year, and third are these very long-term things, he said. There was some concern voiced, largely by Commissioner Phil Goodman, that the three-year plan is missing key elements. He charged Doyle with putting the plan together in July 2011, shortly after Doyle took over for longtime Director Ed Fussell.I dont want us to lose direction of what a strategic plan is really for. This should be really a summation of the main things we want to do with the district the next few years, Goodman said.Goodman reiterated his desire for the district to livestream video of its public meetings, and said that provisions for an eventual move out of the districts College Road location on Stock Island need to be included in the plan. He also asked about the salary-range overhaul for district employees Doyle has undertaken. Abig part of this is to improve our effectiveness as a district. Its not just a to-do list, its really more, he said. Chairman Bill Shaw agreed, but said he prefers Doyle not get bogged down by any three-year plan. I want a three-year plan all the time, but I dont want the dates so close that hes working on three-year plans all the time and not running the district, he said.

Zip-line hearing suddenly stoppedThe hits keep coming for Marathon nonprofit Crane Point Hammock and the much-debated zip-line course it proposes to install on the 56-acre property.The proposed attraction has its fair share of detractors, and theyve posited numerous reasons why the project should not be allowed. An improper sign was never one of them until Monday.Crane Point was required by law to post signs notifying the public of Mondays Planning Commission hearing regarding a passive recreation conditional use and height variance for the zip line.City Planning Director George Garrett says they did just that but posted 11-inchby-17-inch signs instead of the required 4-square-foot signs.George Chartrand, a resident of the Crane Point subdivision off 52nd Street, brought Mondays zip-line Planning Commission hearing to a halt when he brought the discrepancy to the commissions attention. It had been going on for at least an hour.Garrett said the sign size requirement is a part of city code and that the law required ending the hearing. We gave them proper standards; we believe their consultants gave them proper standards, and it didnt come out that way when they posted, Garrett said.Garrett said the Planning Commission is expected to meet in special session on May 6 to rehear the two items. He said the snafu wouldnt delay the zip-line from making it to the City Council.It will get to City Council the same day it would anyway because we cut out the April 23 meeting, Garrett said. By the time Chartrand came to the podium during public comment, Garrett, fellow city Planner Kevin Sullivan and Crane Point representatives had all made presentations.In addition, Ken Meyer, Michael Welber and Joyce Newman all spoke against the project before Chartrand took the podium. Meyer is an authority on white crowned pigeons with the Avian Research and Conservation Institute in Gainesville who says a zip line would harm the birds and their habitat.Height limits are always a controversial topic in the Keys. Marathon limits buildings to 37 feet, but administrative variances up to 25 percent are available for uninhabitable space.The administrative height variance is something I issue and send out notices to everyone within 100 feet of the property requesting the variance. We put both [the conditional use and height variance] on the same notice and sent it to everyone within 300 feet. There were actually more than were required to be noticed by law, he said.As for the conditional use being considered passive as opposed to active, as opponents of the project say it is, Garrett said thats a moot point. He said the state Department of Economic Opportunity approved it last June as part of the citys application for a Community Block Development Grant for Crane Point.We did an interpretation of the code on passive versus active use. It was one we did back in June as part of the [grant] application, he said. They can bring it up as part of their concerns, but its not really something they can appeal.The City Council agreed to pursue the $735,000 grant on behalf of Crane Point. The Marathon City Council agreed to seek the grant on behalf of Crane Point. Its based on the estimated $1.1 million attraction creating 21 full-time jobs for a year.The city would have to pay back to the state $35,000 per job not created. Crane Point has said it would cover the first four jobs if necessary.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONPaintball guns to help with bug controlBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROLLittle movement on office spaceThe Florida Keys Mosquito Control District and city of Key West appear to be doing a lot of meeting and very little resolving when it comes to the district potentially being forced off city-owned land on College Road in the near future.Mosquito Control Director Michael Doyle relayed news of another recent meeting with city officials, at which he received little in the way of definitive answers about the districts future at the Stock Island building it uses.The process, as you can imagine, is a slow one, he said. We have one piece of property and three organizations vying to do something with it, Doyle said, referring to the district, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, and city plans for a 24-hour homeless shelter (the former Easter Seals building is also under consideration for the shelter).None of the balls have dropped on what plan theyre going to approve and where we sit in that, he added. The district lease with the city expires in May 2014, and Doyle has made it clear to the board that he doesnt expect a renewal. But he did relay on Monday the possibility of a month-to-month lease while the city mulls its options.I said by May of this year wed have to know if we have to vacate the property [by May 2014]. One of the first things [the city] said was that we could go month to month, Doyle said. The general consensus on the board was to approach the city and at least finalize a month-to-month lease and what the rate would be.I think we need to know pretty soon because we start drafting the budget for compliance deadlines on July 15, district Comptroller Bill Southcott said. Theyll want to have some kind of interim lease and we need to know that dollar amount when we start preparing the budget.Other agenda items included:Aproposal by Commissioner Steve Smith to move monthly meeting times to an earlier hour each month. Smith said the 5:30 p.m. start time is difficult when staff and commissioners are attending from up and down the Keys.The board agreed to have Smith bring the item back next month as a resolution on which the board could vote.The board voted unanimously to allow the village of Islamorada to conduct an environmental assessment at a district-controlled lot near mile marker 81.6. The district plans to allow the Islamorada Fire Rescue Department to use the largely unused lot for parking and training. The lot is owned by the Monroe County School District, which allows Mosquito Control to use it, so ultimate approval would have to come from the School District.The lot was used in the past to store large chemical tanks for spray trucks. Chemicals are used on a much smaller scale today and the lot is no longer necessary for that amount of storage.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROL Hearing TestCALLFOR APPT.

The sharks size is not clear. Dave Champagne, owner of Key Dives, the charter dive shop that took the group to the Eagle that day, estimates the shark is between 12 and 15 feet long. Shivji, who is also an oceanographic professor at Nova, said the shark is female, but its length is too difficult to judge without a size reference. The Eagle lies in about 110 feet of water, and Eisenhaure saw the shark while ascending and taking a second decompression stop about 15 to 20 feet below the surface. He said the shark was cruising about 12 feet above his head when he took its picture. I was amazed and excited to see it and also a bit nervous, knowing the chances that it would attack were slim, but that if it did, it could be very bad, Eisenhaure said.The group of divers calmly stayed together as the shark appeared to be checking them out, Eisenhaure said, adding that the large fish showed no aggression.Eisenhaure waited about a minute after he lost sight of the shark before surfacing with the rest of the group. The whole thing was so brief in the scheme of things, but its something I will never forget, he said. Eisenhaures been diving since he was 14 years old and has dived and snorkeled in waters from Maine to Florida, all over the Caribbean, and Hawaii. But his April 10 dive will likely be his most memorable. While I have seen sharks before, they have always been nurse sharks or reef sharks, and the experience was nothing like seeing the great white, he said. Its one of those things that you can see on TVa million times, but you will never really know the feeling of being in open water with one until it happens, and its quite a thrill. There have been reports on social media and online diving forums that the shark was tagged in Cape Cod, Mass., and spotted in Fort Lauderdale and Key Largo. But Shivji said after looking at the photo that there is no satellite tag on the sharks dorsal fin. He doubts this shark is being tracked.Diver amazedFrom Shark,1A

The shelter will resume normal operations when every dog [is] asymptomatic, so three to six weeks, he said. We are in the process of cleaning the facility, disinfecting it, Cook said. In addition to defending her medical care, Bentley said she believes part of the reason she was forced out is because she didnt always put on a happy face as the board wanted. They said the image of the shelter should be happy, positive, 24-7, no matter what were dealing with, Bentley said. That is just impossible when you are dealing with animal control and shelters. Its not always happy and fluffy. They didnt want to hear that. SHARK took over the shelter from Stand Up for Animals in 2010 after a county audit showed Stand Up founder Linda Gottwald spent shelter money on personal things.With quarantine, shelter chief outFrom Shelter,1A led LeBaron there with plans of robbing Gardner when he showed up at the boat.In October 2009, Whitmore pleaded guilty to seconddegree murder and was sentenced by Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones to 18 years in prison.According to testimony and police records, LeBaron was waiting inside the cabin of the vessel. [Whitmore] then stated that when she got to the bottom of the stairs, the flashlight suddenly went out and she felt a weight on her as Mr. Gardner fell back against her.She then heard sounds of a struggle and noise she described as bones crunching. The autopsy confirmed that Mr. Gardner suffered a broken upper and lower jaw as well as having numerous teeth knocked out. They then took Gardners 1999 Mercury Marquis and headed north. While driving out of the Keys, LeBaron reportedly tossed a switchblade, hammer and Whitmores cell phone from the car. The couple was caught Feb. 22, 2009, in Midvale, Utah, based on a tip to police.

All but five of the guns including a Chinese AK-47 and a Bushmaster M-16 type of rifle with a scope and bayonet were recovered, the Monroe County Sheriffs Office says.Deputy Becky Herrin said the burglary victim, who was about to go out of town on a hunting trip, called the Sheriffs Office early Monday morning to report the guns gone. He said he last saw them on April 10.She said investigation revealed the three suspects got into the RVby breaking a rear window. In addition to the 16 stolen rifles, shotguns and handguns, they also reportedly took a laptop computer, a flat-screen television, a cross bow and various types of ammunition. Detectives from the Sheriffs Offices Criminal Investigations Unit and the Special Investigations Unit were called to investigate, as was the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.During the investigation, detectives learned the guns might be at a trailer at the Waters Edge Trailer Park. They also received information a white Nissan may have some of the guns in it, Herrin said.Using an undercover operative, guns were purchased from Jermaine Roberts, 22, at the trailer in the Waters Edge Trailer Park. Roberts was subsequently arrested and charged with eight counts possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of ammunition by a convicted felon and dealing in stolen property. The Nissan was stopped on Summerland Key after a detective saw its window tinting was too dark to be legal. AK-9 then alerted on the car, indicating drugs. In the trunk, detectives found three of the stolen guns, 35 plastic bags of heroin and $3,143 in cash. Andrew Riley, 19, of Cutler Bay was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, dealing in stolen property and trafficking in heroin. Romanique Williams, 18, of Miami was charged with dealing in stolen property and trafficking in heroin. Just really good police work, Herrin said.Five firearms still missingCRIME FRONTEPAfugitive resentencedASalt Lake City man involved in a shootout with federal EPAagents at a Marathon marina in March 2009 was granted a sevenyear reprieve on his original prison sentence on April 8. Larkin Baggett, 58, pleaded guilty in October 2009 to several federal felonies stemming from a 2007 illegaldumping case in his native Utah, and his subsequent flight to avoid prosecution.He was sentenced to 11.75 years for aggravated battery on law enforcement, a consecutive term of seven years for the illegal possession of eight firearms while a fugitive from justice, and an additional 15 months because the Florida crimes were committed while Baggett was out on bond in the Utah case, which was handled by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.According to U.S. Attorneys Office spokeswoman Annette Castillo, Baggett was re-sentenced April 8 to 13 years, restitution, forfeiture of more than $40,000 and supervised release for five years. Baggett appealed his original sentence to the 11th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, citing a discrepancy with his sentencing. The court ruled in his favor on March 6, 2012, and ordered him re-sentenced. It stemmed from a part of the original charges later determined to be in fact a separate substantive offense and not an enhancement as the parties, probation and the court originally believed, U.S. Attorney spokeswoman Alicia Valle said.Baggett jumped bail in April 2008 and was on the run from authorities when he ended up in Marathon. He was facing six felonies for violating the Clean Water Act and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act.Baggett was tracked to Marathon and, on March 10, 2009, was confronted by agents from the EPAand Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputies.Baggett admitted to brandishing a .308-caliber Bushmaster semi-automatic assault rifle, which was equipped with two 30-round magazines of ammunition, taped together for quick reload.Baggett was shot twice, including once in the face.Baggett gets reduction, does 13 yearsBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comIN THE COURTSLEARNING HEALTHY WAYS Prekindergarten students of Kara Johnson and Cindy Ed learn about the importance of preventing the spread of germs on Monday at the Treasure Village Montessori in Islamorada.Chris Tittel,spokesman for the Monroe County Health Department,shared posters and handouts encouraging students to cover coughs and sneezes,wash hands regularly and stay home if theyre feeling sick.

Allowing a narrow redredge of the Walkers Island privately owned access channel, with full mitigation for seagrass impacts and properly placing channel markers along with additional protective buoys around the shallow flats, will ensure future scarring would not occur at this location when boaters use the existing boat dock. As part of the mitigation, the upland property owners will be legally and financially responsible to replant the seagrass and maintain and restore the surrounding 26 acres against any future boat caused damage. Lets put the expense back on the property owner, not on the taxpayers of Monroe County.I ask that you stand behind these proposed amendments, thereby moving forward in the preservation of our natural environment rather than the status quo, which allows continued, unrestored damage to seagrasses.

We should be alarmed not only at the amount, which an April 4 Miami Herald article says has Gov. Rick Scott raising big bucks at the rate of $50,000 a day, but also at the contributions sources. Do we want our public policy bought and paid for from the likes of Blue Cross & Blue Shield, U.S. Sugar, Florida Power & Light and gambling and development interests? They already drown out the voices of average citizens in the halls of the Capitol. Well, thats exactly whats happening, and its all because of a couple of U.S. Supreme Court decisions that equate money with free speech and that give corporations the same rights as individuals. As a result, Scott and other politicians can accept checks in unlimited amounts from so-called electioneering communications organizations, which are not subject to the $500 contribution limit that applies to candidate accounts. Meanwhile, the legislative leadership claims that it is working to reform our campaign finance and ethics laws during the current session. Right. How stupid do they really think we are? Peter Butzin Volunteer chairman Common Cause/Florida TallahasseeAnimal care was excellentI was an employee of Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys from December 201I to August 2012. I am writing this letter to express my concern in regards to the accusations being levied against Katie Bentley and her recent termination as Marathon animal shelter director. During my nine months as a shelter employee working for Ms. Bentley, I never witnessed her abuse or neglect any animal, nor was I ever asked to withhold food or veterinary care. I find the very notion that Ms. Bentley would do any of these things as absurd and in stark contrast to her character. I would either be tasked to take care of the dogs or cats/rabbits on a typical work day. My responsibilities were each animals cage was to be scrubbed, hosed down and meticulously cleaned every single day regardless if the animal noticeably soiled it or not. Bedding was to be inspected daily and removed if visibly soiled or smelly.Each animals water and food dishes were to be cleaned, sanitized and replaced daily (with additional sanitation measures for communally used water/food dishes and litter pans). Each animal received bedding, treats and toys for enrichment. Each animal was fed every single day. If an animal had a special dietary need, it would be made clear to all employees responsible for that animal.Each dog in the shelter was to be rotated inside and outside on a daily basis for enrichment. The entire outdoor cat enclosure, indoor cat area and common areas were to be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized daily. In addition, the dog yards were to be checked twice daily and cleaned of all feces, checking water and refilling as needed.Each and every time I brought a health concern of an animal to Ms. Bentley, the animal was immediately inspected and taken to the veterinarian if warranted. The entire animal shelter was also to be deep cleaned during the one day a week the shelter is closed to the public.Ms. Bentley maintained these standards for the entire duration of my employment and would inspect the kennels, yards and enclosures frequently to ensure myself and other employees were adequately taking care of the animals. When these standards were not met, she would have mandatory shelter meetings to discuss the deficiencies in animal care and reinforce training where needed.I was, and still am, impressed by the professionalism, compassion and dedication Ms. Bentley has to Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys. I have always known her to be an advocate for animals and an exceptional shelter director.Satiiwan Khalsa Wtu MarathonShelter board is weakThe Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keysboard of directors from the president on down to the nonvoting members have displayed zero interest in supporting the day-to-day activities at the Marathon animal shelter. The only outside fundraising events that any of the board members have ever shown their face at were held at the extravagant home of the president herself, more of a gathering of the selfserving elitists of the Marathon area.In the two years that SHARK has operated the shelter, all the board members combined have darkened the doorway to the shelter itself fewer times than the number of fingers I possess on my right hand. Not one board member ever lifted a finger to establish, bid for or help to run the animal shelter itself. They havent walked, washed, fed or scooped poop to even one animal at the shelter.Every member was brought into the fold by the hard-working woman that did put in all the effort and start-up cost to establishing a not-for-profit corporation.The SHARK board of directors pushed Katie Bentley from her position on the 12th of April without any warning or valid reasoning, citing animal neglect, which is not only unfounded but preposterous, and citing the fact that individuals with extremely weak reasons for surrendering their animals were not sent away with cake and roses. What a joke.It is a shame that such passionless people with next to nil experience in the animal shelter world would push out the only individual in Monroe County that not only put in the time to get this off the ground, but literally put all the blood, sweat and tears she had to offer into this venture. Her only mistake was to have faith in her board. This leaves me with the memory of words last said to me more than two years ago when this journey began. After coming down hard on former shelter director Linda Gottwald for the way she ran the shelter and for effectively taking complete control of a nonprofit, one of her supporters and I believe an employee of hers said to me, Do you know how hard it is to find board members in Monroe County who will do what they say they will and lend a helping hand with the operation of the shelter? Just wait, youll see. My eyes have been opened and I now see. John Wycoff MarathonJustify firingIt is with shock, sadness and disgust that sleazy politics has reared its ugly head once again in Marathon. Katie Bentley, the director of Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys, was fired Friday unexpectedly from her job. She was given the opportunity to resign or be fired so lets just call it what it is: She was fired. This comes after she was reviewed and given a great raise from the board several months ago for a job well done. Does this pass the smell test? What is going on and why? I personally volunteered on numerous occasions there and witnessed how she ran the animal shelter and was impressed. This was not just a job to Katie; this was her passion and her life. This position was 24/7 for her and she gladly served. Her fundraising efforts and involvement in the community were evidence of her dedication. We as concerned citizens deserve to get to the bottom of this and get answers and reinstate Katie as director. Did the board have an investigation and, if so, what were the results? Are disgruntled past employees involved in a witch hunt? What could have possibly been so bad that you remove the director suddenly, and seemingly without due process or cause?The place was clean, the animals were taken care of and the day-to-day business activities were running as usual. We need to hold members of the board accountable and those behind the scenes that are involved exposed. I will not give a single penny of donations to the shelter until we get some answers. I know many in the community who are upset and shocked and the board will certainly hear from them in the coming days.James Fazio MarathonMeanwhile, Citizens policy holders are increasingly told to pay more than is actuarially soundFloridas powerful insurance lobby is fighting a rearguard action in Tallahassee that has been largely ignored by an all-too-gullible public. The tip of the iceberg emerged last week when it came to light that Senate sponsors of a Citizens Property Insurance Corp. overhaul bill grossly exaggerated the cost of Floridas hurricane risk pool by more than 1,000 percent.It got worse when lawmakers representing inland counties blamed rich people living on the coast for driving up rates for all property insurance in the state. Hogwash.First, the gross exaggeration. State Sen. David Simmons (R-Altamonte Springs) told a Senate committee hearing last week that every property owner with windstorm coverage in Florida faced a $2,000 to $5,000 hurricane assessment to shore up reserves for state-backed Citizens. He used that threat to defend SB Bill 1770, which calls for rate hikes averaging 60 percent in coastal counties where Citizens writes policies. Well, turns out he was using the wrong figures. The actual hurricane fee calculated by Citizens is more like $280 for non-Citizens policyholders. Thats just one of many gross exaggerations at play in Tallahassee where insurance industry lobbyists hold sway. Consider this fact: The cost of insurance is based on risk. The more policies in force, the more that risk is spread resulting in lower insurance costs for everyone in that risk pool. Explain, then, why the Legislature and governor seem so determined to depopulate Citizens by jacking up rates, setting caps on maximum coverage and reversing mitigation credits for hardening of structures? The answer is pretty simple: State-backed Citizens competes with the private, for-profit insurance marketplace and those companies spend a lot on lobbying to keep the decks stacked for maximum profits. Citizens now has reserves in excess of $15 billion and a record amount of cash after seven years with no hurricanes. Its easy to see why the for-profit insurance industry lusts after that business. Now the blame game. Simmonsclaims that inland counties are subsidizing windstorm rates for wealthy coastal communities are pure bunk.In fact, a study done by Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe found the bias actually works in reverse. Windstorm costs for inland counties are far below what we pay in Monroe County, yet claims payment history shows the Keys have been subsidizing inland counties for years.According to FIRM, if building codes were fully weighted, Orange County (home to Simmons) would see rate increases of 100 to 200 percent to achieve actuarially sound pricing, whereas rates in Monroe County should decrease by anywhere from 40 to 55 percent. But facts have never stopped state lawmakers from kowtowing to the insurance industry lobby. All we can hope for is that someday Monroe can exit Citizens and the madness of state politics that skew the true costs and risks for windstorm insurance.Wayne Markham . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Publisher Larry Kahn . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Editor Richard Tamborrino . . .Advertising/New Bus.Dev.Dir.

Harbor-widening lobbying startsAfter opposing sides agreed last week on referendum language asking voters whether Key West should study harbor dredging to allow for larger cruise ships, the partisan lobbying has already begun. Agroup called the Key West Committee for Responsible Tourism says its goal is rejecting the dredging study, viewed as the first step towards actually dredging the Key West harbor channel for the express purpose of accommodating larger cruise ships. On Oct. 1, a binding referendum will ask voters whether, at no cost to the city, officials should pursue a $2 million U.S. Army Corps of Engineers study analyzing the economic and environmental impact of widening the harbor. In an e-mail, committee Chairman Jolly Benson said we feel there is a good reason to oppose this shortsighted project for many reasons, including economic, environmental and societal. To go forward with this study, which is actually the first phase of the dredging itself make no mistake about that is a grave misstep for the overall well being of Key West.In a series of meetings between the Key West Chamber of Commerce and environmental advocacy group Last Stand, the referendum language was brokered by City Commissioner Tony Yaniz and circulated by City Attorney Shawn Smith last week.The question that will be put to voters in the Oct. 1 city election: Shall the city of Key West request that the Army Corp of Engineers conduct a comprehensive feasibility study, at no monetary cost to the city, to determine the environmental, economic and social impacts of widening the Key West Main Ship Channel for use by modern and longer cruise ships while also addressing navigational safety?Smith reported to commissioners in an April 8 e-mail that an agreement was reached on key points. That agreement was subsequently refined through discussions that [Yaniz] had with both parties. The result is a ballot question that both sides support.Group forms to oppose referendumBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST Stand-in boat offered for battleFaced with financial cuts due to the federal budget sequestration, U.S. Coast Guard Sector Key West wont deploy the cutter Sawfish and a crew to participate in the 31st annual Conch Republic Independence Celebration on April 26.But the Conch Republic has rallied to offer the Coasties use of a private vessel, the Paladin as a standin.

Money discipline grows aftercrisisThe frugality and investing discipline that the 2008 financial crisis imposed on Americans appear to have led to permanent changes in behavior on money matters, according to a survey by the nations second largest mutual fund company.Spendthrift ways are unlikely to again become as pervasive as they were before the crisis, Fidelity Investments concluded April 3 in releasing results of its Five Years After survey of nearly 1,200 investors.Positive behaviors that appear to be now entrenched include saving more in 401(k) plans, paying down debt and taking greater care to invest wisely. These tend to be very sticky decisions, because you begin to budget and spend around a higher savings rate, said John Sweeney, an executive vice president on retirement and investing with Boston-based Fidelity. People are taking control of their financial lives, and control breeds confidence. Survey participants were interviewed over two weeks in February, nearly five years after the government-brokered rescue sale of Wall Street firm Bear Stearns to JPMorgan Chase. That event, in March 2008, is regarded as a tipping point for more the tumultuous upheavals that followed, including the September 2008 collapse of Lehman Brothers. Housing prices plunged, unemployment spiked and stocks tumbled more than 50 percent from the markets October 2007 high to its March 2009 low. It wasnt until last month that the Dow Jones industrial average returned to its pre-crisis high. Key survey findings include:Fifty-six percent reported their financial outlooks changed from feeling scared or confused at the beginning of the crisis to confident or prepared five years later.Survey participants estimated their household had lost 34 percent of the value of their total assets, on average, at the low point of the crisis.By MARK JEWELLAssociated PressPERSONAL FINANCE BUSINESS BRIEFSEverglades park wants concessionaireEverglades National Park has extended its deadline to April 25 for bids for the concession contract or commercial visitor services at Flamingo, 38 miles from park headquarters in Homestead.The winning bidder will provide services including lodging; camping; a tour boat; food and beverages; retail; rentals of canoes, kayaks, skiffs, houseboats, bicycles and boat slips; and other visitor services.

Amassive effort to overhaul the state-backed Citizens Property Insurance Corp. was delayed from a final vote in the Senate on Tuesday amid concerns over whether theres enough support to pass the bill. Sen. David Simmons (RMaitland) said he is working with senators that remain on the fence about his proposal (SB 1770), which is intended to quickly shift more than one-seventh of Citizens1.3 million policies to private insurers through a clearinghouse and imposes higher rates on new policies for Citizensremaining customers except for in Monroe County. But Simmons claims the bill could pass now. I already have more than the necessary 20 votes, Simmons claimed. I believe in getting consensus and I believe in being able to do something more than skate by with the 21 votes. I want to solve the problem that those who would vote no might have. Simmons intends to further amend a part of the bill involving how the new rate structure would affect buyers of new homes, an effort to ease the minds of some South Florida lawmakers, where there are larger numbers of Citizens customers. The Senate returns to the floor April 24.Opponents believe their last-minute lobbying efforts have shaken enough lawmakers to reconsider the package. The delay of this bill to raise rates and stall our housing recovery shows that policyholders and consumer advocates are making a difference, said Sean Shaw, founder of Policyholders of Florida and an employee of a law firm that represents consumers in cases against insurance firms. We will continue to pound lawmakers with the facts this bill would hurt our housing recovery, harm policyholders and make rate making even more political.The overall proposal also reduces the maximum value of properties that could be covered and would make the companys executive director an appointee of the governor and states chief financial officer. Sen. Jeff Clemens (D-Lake Worth) said the clearinghouse proposal would have advanced on its own. But he said proposals to increase rates to actuarially sound figures for new policies will eventually allow private companies to hike premiums on their current customers as the low-cost competition is diminished.This jacks up rates for everybody in the state eventually, Clemens said.Simmons said a remaining concern from some senators is that the bill currently would require new policy holders to pay rates in line with what neighbors are being charged by private firms, which in some areas could be 50 percent to 90 percent higher.An amendment that Simmons intends to offer next week would require the buyers of homes now covered with Citizens wind-only policies to first check if they can get coverage from a private firm. If the buyer cant find a rate within 15 percent of Citizens, the buyer would be able to purchase Citizens multi-peril policy.We dont have an immediate solution, but we have a good solution, Simmons said. The one-week pause could also provide legislators a chance to review the House proposal (HB 835) by Rep. John Wood (R-Winter Haven).Woods proposal includes parts of Simmonsbill, including the clearinghouse for the private firms to pick up the least risky policies, an inspector general to watch the daily internal operations at Citizens, a slow reduction of the cap on policies to $500,000 in most areas, and a prohibition on new polices seaward of the coastal construction control line. Proponents, including the Florida Chamber of Commerce, say the fixes are needed to reduce the size of the financial risk the statebacked company places on all policy holders in Florida and hope to make the company once again the insurer of last resort. David Hart, executive vice president of the Florida Chamber, supported the delay, as he believes an overwhelming majority of lawmakers support the concept of reducing the size of Citizens and making rates competitive with the private market. I think its better that they slow down right now, Hart said. It gives them a chance to see what the House produces and they can work out any difference before 1770 is [back] on the floor. Under 1770, rates for new policies would go up 137 percent on the mainland, but not in the Florida Keys, where no private insurers operated. The average Keys property owner pays $2,900 in annual Citizens premiums. If the 137 percent hike $3,973 went through here, that $2,900 policy would have cost $6,873. Citizens spokesman Michael Peltier said that as of Feb. 28, Citizens carried 24,994 residential and commercial policies in the Keys. The vast majority, around 21,000, are coastal residential wind policies.

Special center fielders. Wells has been named among the top 100 high school players at that position in the country by the scouting service Perfect Game USA. Schoneck is expected to be named to play in the Florida Athletic Coaches Association all-star game in May, according to Gulliver Prep longtime coach Mark Schusterman. Schusterman, not long after Schoneck recently robbed his team of several hits, said, She might be the best center fielder weve seen this year. The two are casually acquainted. I know him but Im not close to him, Schoneck said. I think hes a very good player. Wells returned the compliment: She will run through fences to catch a ball. Schoneck is coached by Steve Wells, Stevens father. Ill be in the dugout and see a ball hit and go, Oh, no, thats not good, he said. Then here comes Raquel, catching the ball and rolling on her head. I think Ive seen her drop one ball. Nothing will stop her from getting to a ball not the fence, not the ground. She has scars all over.

These are fish in the midto upper 30-pound range. Over the coming days and weeks, we will see many more fish of this size as well as plenty of schoolies and gaffers.When the proper conditions prevail, sailfishing should also be very good. An eastbound tide combined with easterly winds create a circumstance called tailing, when the sailfish are up on the surface feeding. Any of the typical sailfish baits will work pilchards, cigar minnows, ballyhoo, goggle eyes. Pitch the bait in front of the fish as its coming down the wave and be ready for an instant strike. You will most likely get multiple strikes, as the fish are traveling in packs. You may also see cobia tailing along the surface. These make for a nice bonus with quality eats at the end of the day. Both mutton snapper and permit are biting on the wrecks in increasing numbers. Use any variety of live baits for the muttons, but the permit prefer live crabs on a jig head. Most of the permit on the offshore wrecks are in the 20to 30-pound class and are great sport on 15to 20pound tackle.Yellowtailing on the reef is excellent, with the best bite in 40 to 60 feet. Mixed in are enough muttons to keep the game interesting, and the larger mangroves are starting to show.The weeks bestCapt.

He also says there is great family fun fishing for good-size lane snapper in Hawk Channel right now.The SeaSquared crew fished on the reef, offshore, in the bay and at the bridges.

Good sake should never, ever be served hot.And though you might shudder to hear it, some brewers in Brussels are quite happy when bugs fall into open vats of yeast, because they churn it up, thus becoming unwitting accomplices in the dance between sugar and yeast.These are the sorts of intoxicating lessons you learn about plants, brews and bugs in Amy Stewarts entertaining new book, The Drunken Botanist: The Plants That Create the Worlds Great Drinks (Algonquin, $19.95), which deserves a place on the shelves of aspiring mixologists and liquor enthusiasts everywhere.Stewart celebrates the plants that flavor our favorite adult beverages, debunks longheld myths about booze and includes recipes and growing tips (example: cultivate wormwood because its beautiful, not because you should attempt to make absinthe, which requires a still).It was a mind-boggling amount of research, Stewart said. I really kind of went too far in places. I spent six weeks working on the agave chapter, and I thought, This book is going to take me 20 years, I cant keep doing this.But I would get stuck on one weird little fact that seemed wrong, but to find out what really happened meant going back to primary sources, hiring researchers and translators. ... I was hardcore about this.In one case, Stewart had to verify a hieroglyphic in the Ebers Papyrus, an ancient Egyptian medical text. (I was truly insane, she says by way of explanation.) But spending days establishing some truths about our founding fathers Benjamin Franklin did not create a recipe for spruce beer, nor did George Washington distill apple jack, she says was only part of her grueling research.She also had to sample a version of every drink recipe in the book there are 50 and tasted many of the other concoctions about which she writes. Naturally, there are a few she wont be ordering again any time soon. No disrespect to the Philippines, but I tried palm wine and rice wine, and they were awful, she says. The Drunken Botanist does not mark the first time Stewart, who owns the antiquarian bookstore Eureka Books in Northern California with her husband, has ventured into the natural world in search of compelling stories. Shes also the author of From the Ground Up: The Story of a First Garden; The Earth Moved: On the Remarkable Achievements of Earthworms; Flower Confidential: The Good, the Bad, and the Beautiful; Wicked Plants: The Weed That Killed Lincolns Mother & Other Botanical Atrocities, and Wicked Bugs: The Louse that Conquered Napoleons Army & Other Diabolical Insects.Tireless researchWhats so remarkable about Amy and I think this is what sets her apart and makes her books so successful on every level is that she is a tireless researcher, and then has the ability to step back from this massive pile of information, of facts, history, science, stories, lore, interviews, and pull out whats really important and interesting, says Algonquin editor Andra Miller. Amy once told me that her books could easily be 1,000 pages long, and no doubt its true. But its her discernment that really makes her books work.But the plants arent what drive Stewart to seek material in the greenery. Whats interesting to me are the people, she says. Frankly a plant thats just growing along in the jungle is not that interesting. Its just there being green and doing what it does. But when a person comes along and goes, I can commit murder with this plant!or I can make a drink of this plant!things start to happen. The plants are the innocent bystanders in all of this. In Flower Confidential that was kind of the thing: Flowers are just flowers, and we come along and turn them into this global agriculture. Living just shy of the Oregon border, Stewart cultivates the plants best suited to that climate: Black currant for cassis; sloes (blackthorn berries) for sloe gin fizzes; elderberry, not for the berries but the flowers, which perfume elderflower liqueur (No other spirit tastes quite so much like a meadow in bloom, she writes. If one tries to imagine what honeybees taste when they dive between a flowers petals, this drink is surely it.).Likes South FloridaShes jealous, though, of South Floridas weather and potential for growing unusual plants, herbs and spices. This is where I long to be, she says. Tropical plants are so interesting. Among her favorites: heirloom varieties of sugar cane, which come in such vibrant shades as purple or red and white stripes. Theyre dazzling. Last time I was in Miami I had a mojito that used sugar cane as a swizzle stick. Just remember that sugar concentrates in the lowest segment of the stalk.Stewart also is a fan of tropical fruits, and says if she lived here shed experiment with cardamom, part of the ginger family. But while she enjoys new and fresh ingredients and says that bars have inspired some of her artwork (you can see her oil paintings at amystewart.com), she finds the trendy mixology going on at certain classy establishments a bit over the top. Its gotten a little precious, she says. At a certain point it gets in the way of making a good drink. Funny thing is, I considered it my duty while working on this book to seek out places where I could have unusual drinks. Im in Chicago, and I went to this bar called the Violet Hour, one of the most beautiful bars Ive ever been in. But after so many strange drinks, now I go home and make a Manhattan or an OldFashioned. None of them [the fancy drinks] have become what I want after work.Still, overall, Stewart believes the trends are heading in the right direction. The best thing in the cocktail world is the move to real ingredients, not flavored vodkas or plant extracts done in a lab that have nothing to do with the fruit on the label, she says. Were moving away from cheap cocktail syrups toward real ingredients. If youre going to make a mojito? Squeeze that fresh lime into the shaker.

Youre far away and trying to determine if a ball will be shallow or deep. I determine how a batter swings whether she pulls the ball or hits to the opposite field and then position myself. And my speed helps.As a center fielder, she said, My teammates rely on me and trust me and that makes me feel good. Wells a converted shortstop who enjoys watching center fielders Andrew McCutchen of the Pittsburgh Prates and Adam Jones of the Baltimore Orioles, though he patterns himself after neither sees a ball hit off the bat and then heads quickly to where he believes it is headed. I take pretty precise routes, he said. And I have no problem with laying out [diving] and getting dirty. I have a lot of confidence in my defense. Coach Miguel Menendez said Wells, who does not have great speed, gets a better jump on balls than anybody I have coached or played with. His natural instinct is off the charts. He has a knack for putting his head down and run to where the ball is going to be. Menendez recalled a fall game when Wells was a freshman.Aball was hit into the gap out in right-center and I looked over at [then-assistant coach] Joey Gandolfo and said thats a triple, he said. Next thing you know, we see Steven running and running and he getting closer and closer to the ball. At the last minute he lays out and makes probably the best catch Ive ever seen in the outfield.Wells, who hasnt made an error this season, is not comfortable with all the accolades. Im not a person that likes to brag, he said. Neither Schoneck nor Wells are powerful hitters his batting average is over .300, hers is .268. Wells hopes to play baseball in college. But Schoneck, whos also a soccer star, said she doesnt anticipate playing college sports.On Monday afternoon, the center fielders he 17 and a head taller, and she three days from turning 18 were the subject of a photo shoot. Why is your hand out of your glove? she asked him as they posed. Its how I wear it, he answered.After the pictures were taken, someone kidded them that it might not be good to make errors in their final games of the season. We dont make errors, Wells said. Two of a kindFrom Fielders,1Bto give Marathon a 1-0 lead.Sammie Bonilla followed with a two-run double scoring Bruland and Konrath that made it 3-0. Bonilla scored later in the inning on an error that also allowed Brandi Spalten to reach base. Spalten eventually scored on a Savannah Rodamer single to make it 5-0.Marathon added a run in the fifth inning when Spalten was hit by a pitch, stole two bases and scored on a Jordan Roney bunt single. It was all the cushion Roney would need on the mound.Doral mustered little offense, and what runs it did score in the sixth inning were unearned. Two errors allowed runners to reach first and second, and they scored on consecutive singles to make it 6-2.The Florida Christian game was scheduled for 5 p.m. Tuesday at Palmetto Bay Park in Miami. Should the Dolphins win, theyd likely face No. 1 seed and tournament host Westminster Christian School in the championship game Thursday.If we show up to play we have a pretty good team that could win a few games even in the next round, coach Roney said.District under wayFrom Softball,1B

Broadcasters bemoan Zero TVSome people have had it with TV. Theyve had enough of the 100-plus channel universe. They dont like timing their lives around network show schedules. Theyre tired of $100-plus monthly bills. Agrowing number of them have stopped paying for cable and satellite TVservice, and dont even use an antenna to get free signals over the air. These people are watching shows and movies on the Internet, sometimes via cell-phone connections. Last month, the Nielsen Co. started labeling people in this group Zero TV households, because they fall outside the traditional definition of a TV home. There are 5 million of these residences in the U.S., up from 2 million in 2007.Winning back the Zero TVcrowd will be one of the many issues broadcasters discuss at their national meeting, called the NAB Show, taking place this week in Las Vegas.While show creators and networks make money from this groups viewing habits through deals with online video providers and from advertising on their own websites and apps, broadcasters get paid only when they relay such programming in traditional ways. Unless broadcasters can adapt to modern platforms, their revenue from Zero TVviewers will be zero. Getting broadcast programing on all the gizmos and gadgets like tablets, the backseats of cars, and laptops is hugely important, says Dennis Wharton, a spokesman for the National Association of Broadcasters. Although Wharton says more than 130 TVstations in the U.S. are broadcasting live TVsignals to mobile devices, few people have the tools to receive them. Most cell phones require an add-on device known as a dongle, but these gadgets are just starting to be sold. Among this elusive group of consumers is Jeremy Carsen Young, a graphic designer, who is done with traditional TV. Young has a working antenna sitting unplugged on his back porch in Roanoke, Va., and he refuses to put it on the roof. I dont think wed use it enough to justify having a big eyesore on the house, the 30-year-old says.Online video subscriptions from Netflix Inc. and Amazon.com Inc. which cost less than $15 a month combined have given him and his partner plenty to watch. They take in back episodes of AMCs The Walking Dead and The CWs Supernatural, and they dont need more, he says.He doesnt mind waiting as long as a year for the current seasons episodes to appear on streaming services, even if his friends accidently blurt out spoilers in the meantime. With regular television, he might have missed the latest developments, anyway.By the time it gets to me to watch, Ive kind of forgotten about that, he says.For the first time, TVratings giant Nielsen took a close look at this category of viewer in its quarterly video report released in March. It plans to measure their viewing of new TVshows starting this fall, with an eye toward incorporating the results in the formula used to calculate ad rates.Our commitment is to being able to measure the content wherever it is, says Dounia Turrill, Nielsens senior vice president of insights.Subscriptions waneThe Zero TVsegment is increasingly important, because the number of people signing up for traditional TVservice has slowed to a standstill in the U.S. Last year, the cable, satellite and telecoms providers added just 46,000 video customers collectively, according to research firm SNL Kagan. Thats tiny when compared to the 974,000 new households created last year. While its still 100.4 million homes, or 84.7 percent of all households, its down from the peak of 87.3 percent in early 2010. Nielsens study suggests that this new group may have left traditional TVfor good. While three-quarters actually have a physical TVset, only 18 percent are interested in hooking it up through a traditional pay TVsubscription. Zero TVers tend to be younger, single and without children. Turrill says part of the new monitoring regime is meant to help determine whether theyll change their behavior over time. As these homes change life stage, what will happen to them? Cynthia Phelps, a 43-yearold maker of mental-health apps in San Antonio, Texas, says theres nothing that will bring her back to traditional TV. Shes watched TVin the past, of course, but for most of the last 10 years shes done without it.She finds a lot of programs online to watch on her laptop for free like the TED talks educational series and every few months she gets together with friends to watch older TVshows on DVD, usually something totally geeky, like NBCs Chuck.The 24-hour news channels make her anxious or depressed, and buzz about the latest hot TVshows like Mad Men doesnt make her feel like shes missing out. She didnt know who the Kardashian family was until she looked them up a few years ago.I feel absolutely no social pressure to keep up with the Joneses in that respect, she says.In controlFor Phelps, its less about saving money than choice. She says shed rather spend her time productively and not get sucked into shows shell regret later.I dont want someone else dictating the media I get every day, she says. I want to be in charge of it. When I have a TV, Im less in control of that.The TVindustry has a host of buzz words to describe these non-traditionalist viewers. There are cord-cutters, who stop paying for TVcompletely, and make do with online video and sometimes an antenna. There are cord-shavers, who reduce the number of channels they subscribe to, or the number of rooms pay TV is in, to save money. Then there are the cordnevers, young people who move out on their own and never set up a landline phone connection or a TVsubscription. They usually make do with a broadband Internet connection, a computer, a cellphone and possibly a TVset that is not hooked up the traditional way. Thats the label given to the group by Richard Schneider, the president and founder of the online retailer Antennas Direct. The site is doing great business selling antennas capable of accepting free digital signals since the nations transition to digital over-the-air broadcasts in 2009, and is on pace to sell nearly 600,000 units this year, up from a few dozen when it started in 2003. While the cord-nevers are a target market for him, the category is also troubling. More people are raised with the power of the Internet in their pocket, and dont know or care that you can pull TVsignals from the air for free. Theyre more aware of Netflix than theyre aware over-the-air is even available, Schneider says. That brings us to truck driver James Weitze. The 31-year-old satisfies his video fix with an iPhone. He often sleeps in his truck, and has no apartment.To be sure, hes an extreme case who doesnt fit into Nielsens definition of a household in the first place. But hes watching Netflix enough to keep up with shows like Weeds, Rock, Arrested Development, Breaking Bad, Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Sons of Anarchy.Hes not opposed to TV per se, and misses some ESPN sports programs like the X Games. But hes so divorced from the traditional TVecosystem it could be hard to go back. Its become easier for him to navigate his smartphone than to figure out how to use a TVset-top box and the button-laden remote control. Im pretty tech savvy, but the TVindustry with the cable and the television and the boxes, you dont know how to use their equipment, he says. I try to go over to my grandmas place and teach her how to do it. I cant even figure it out myself.As technology grows,fewer subscribingBy RYAN NAKASHIMAAssociated PressMEDIA Tablets like this are increasingly taking the place of traditional television.Is robotic surgery for you?Robotic surgery is being done more and more often for a variety of operations. But experts say theres a lack of strong evidence that its any better than standard surgery in most cases and its usually costlier. Question: What exactly is robotic surgery? Answer: Amulti-armed robot called da Vinci is used for many operations done with small incisions and tiny instruments. Prostate removal is one of the most common. Da Vinci also is used for removing the uterus, gallbladder, certain complex cancer surgeries and weightloss operations. Q: How does the robot do surgery? A: Asurgeon sits at a computer console in the operating room, directing the long robot arms with hand controls. The arms are tipped with tiny surgical instruments and one has a video camera that lets the surgeon view the operation on the computer screen. Q: What are the pros and cons of using the robot? A: Robot hands dont shake and they can twist and rotate in more directions than human hands. However, robotic operations often cost much more than more conventional surgery. They also sometimes take longer. But patients often spend less time in the hospital. Q: Does the robot ever break or cause problems? A: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is looking into a growing number of reports of malfunctions and complications, including problems that resulted in deaths and injuries. Theres no proof the robot was directly involved. The robots maker says what appears to be an increase in problems really just reflects a change in the way the company reports them. Q: If I need an operation, should I have robotic surgery? A: Ask your doctor about the risks and benefits of using a robot versus standard less invasive surgery. And ask how many robotic operations your surgeon has done. A 2010 New England Journal of Medicine essay by a doctor and a health policy analyst said surgeons must do at least 150 procedures to become adept. But there is no expert consensus on how much training is needed. If youre considering a hysterectomy, your doctor was recently advised by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists that robotic surgery shouldnt be the first choice because theres no good data its as good as the cheaper alternatives.There isnt clear consensus on the issueBy LINDSEY TANNERAssociated PressTO YOUR HEALTH Photo courtesy ASSOCIATED PRESSIn this photo from video provided by Intuitive Surgical,doctors are seen using the da Vinci robotic system.
