No one was injured. Story, 3AAnother hit on insurance?A last-minute provision added to a controversial 2012 state Senate bill could have wide-ranging unintended consequences for a large number of Florida Keys property owners beginning July 1, county officials have discovered.Language added to SB 1770 requires that new development or renovation of existing structures within the federal Coastal Barrier Resource System makes those properties ineligible for Citizens Property Insurance Corp. windstorm coverage. It reads: Any major structure for which a permit is applied on or after July 1, 2014, for new construction or substantial improvement as defined in [state statutes] is not eligible for coverage if within CBRS boundaries. According to Monroe County Growth Management Director Christine Hurley, the provision was added at the behest of global conservation organization The Nature Conservancy. Citizens and the county interpret the federal coastal barrier maps differently. Citizens uses a broader interpretation taking in more property. Citizens includes smaller system units and as well as otherwise protected areas. Technically, both are considered coastal barrier areas. The countys comprehensive plan addresses only the more at-risk system unit areas like part of No Name Key and part of Key Largo. According to Monroe County Senior Planner Emily Schemper, otherwise protected areas on the Keys coastal barrier maps include:North Key Largo (mile marker 106 to Ocean Reef).El Radabob Key (mile marker 101 to 106 oceanside).Lignumvitae/Shell Keys (mile marker 78 to 79).Bahia Honda Key (mile marker 36 to 38). Fort Taylor (Key West).Key West National Wild life Refuge (offshore Key West).Dry Tortugas (offshore Key West).Citizens is just using the federal map at face value, Hurley said, noting that county staff has determined thats not an inaccurate approach.The real problematic part of the bill is it added in renovation. If I want to renovate and harden all my surfaces or elevate my structure, does that now mean Im not eligible for wind insurance? she asked.According to a Nov. 7 email from county state lobbyist Robert Reyes to county officials, Citizens staff brought its findings to the countys attention last week.

But Callahan told Bill Becker of US1 Radio on Monday that the Reporter/ Keynoter which broke the story Nov. 8 and 9, asked the wrong question and the response a department deputy chief gave regarding an initial question about which agency is investigating the matter was not followed up by The Reporter Callahans first statement is semantically correct. The second is false.The Reporter/Keynoter asked the wrong question because it is the county Sheriffs Office that is investigating the missing drugs not the feds or the state, which the newspapers specifically asked about. However, Fire Department officials never acknowledged that the drugs were missing to begin with, even after an e-mail and several phone call messages left by these newspapers.The Sheriffs Office released an offense report last week confirming its detectives began an investigation on Oct. 13 after Battalion Chief Dale Beaver called police that day to report drugs were missing from a storage room in the TraumaStar hangar at Florida Keys Marathon Airport. He referred deputies to Emergency Medical Services Capt. Andrea Sutherland.In an Oct. 24 e-mail from the Reporter/Keynoter Callahan and Deputy Chief of Operations Gary Boswell were asked if federal or state agents were looking into missing drugs from county fire stations. Boswell replied this is not correct. Callahan and Boswell still have not answered a follow-up question sent that same day about whether the missing drugs were recovered.The Sheriffs Office report was heavily redacted, so it is not clear how much drugs are missing, or what they are. The report refers to them as narcotics. Sources close to the investigation say they are likely morphine.When Dr. Sandra Schwemmer, the countys medical director and the one responsible for Fire-Rescues medications, was asked by the newspapers in a brief phone interview Nov. 5 if drugs were missing, she defensively stated she did not understand the nature of the question before hanging up on the Reporter She has yet to respond to at least threeChief: Papers didnt ask the correct questionBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comFIRE-RESCUE DRC expanding in a big wayPerhaps the Middle Keys most popular tourist attraction unveiled an ambitious new 10-year master plan this past weekend aimed at expanding and improving the Grassy Key nonprofit facility. The expansion is made possible in large part by a $1.2 million donation from a supporter of the facility, and was presented during the bi-annual Founders Weekend Nov. 9 and 10, during which the facility hosts its largest donors and reveals its future plans. DRC staff has been working with St. Louis, Mo.,-based planning and design firm PGAV Destinations for the past year. The goal is to keep an emphasis on education and research, but also to upgrade the attraction.We felt DRC had come to the point where it was time to bring in professionals and help us plan our future, Irwin said. We want to make sure its the same place. We also knew we were growing and we have 100 full-time employees.Its a pretty dramatic, ambitious plan.

Sector Miami already has six of the new 154-foot Sentinel-class vessels in service. The goal is to replace all of the fleets aging Islanderclass cutters with the new Sentinel-class with 64 new cutters over the next decade.The new class of cutters, used for border security, counter-narcotics, immigrant interdictions and rescue operations, has a top speed of 32 mph and a range of 2,900 miles. A 24person crew mans each vessel, which cost about $75 million. The David is the first of six to homeported in Key West.In 2004, four Sector Key West-based Islander-class cutters went through retrofits extending their length from 110 feet to 123 feet. However, during sea trials, major structural problems were detected, leading to eight of 10 Key West cutters getting drydocked for good in 2006.The move to make the ships longer was part of larger national plan to modernize the Coast Guard fleet but it was deemed such a failure that Adm. Thad Allen flew to Sector Key West that November and ordered the ships to remain at dock because they were not seaworthy. Sector Key West Ensign Peter Bermont said that following Saturdays commissioning of the David, the station would receive five more cutters, about one every 90 days. Its flexible but generally its a 90-day schedule, he said.1st one slated for commissioning this SaturdayBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMILITARYSee Insurance, 3ASee Drugs, 3ASee DRC, 3ASee Cutters, 2A


And we receive every [fastresponse cutter] through Key West for outfitting. Following the ones commissioned here, therell be 52 more that come through for outfitting. The five others to be based in Key West are, like the David, named after prominent Coasties the Charles W. Sexton, Kathleen Moore, Raymond Evans, William Trump and Isaac Mayo .Its just really impressive, Bermont said. The real concept of the [fastresponse cutter] is to have extended life and extended endurance underway. It can be in rougher conditions.Once the six cutters join the fleet, there will be a total of 13 Coast Guard vessels homeported at stations in Key West, Marathon and Islamorada. Overall, the Keys have about 700 active-duty Coasties. The David is named for Charles David Jr., who enlisted in 1941 and served on the cutter Comanche On Feb. 3, 1943, the Comanche was called to the aid of a U.S. Army transport that had been torpedoed by an enemy submarine in the North Atlantic.David jumped into the ocean, helping rescue 230 men. He died from pneumonia three days later. Sector Key West took delivery of the Charles David Jr. in August and since then, the 24-person crew has been in training. Bermont said members of the crew and descendants of Charles David will be on hand for the commissioning.

Agency spokeswoman Becky Herrin said deputies received information about a possible party involving juveniles drinking on Airport Road late Saturday. They arrived and saw a house with numerous cars parked around it, she said. When they entered the property, they began encountering juveniles with alcoholic beverages in their hands. One boy told them he lived there and his parents were gone, leaving him alone. He said he was watching football on television when people started showing up. His parents were notified of what was happening. The parents of all the other juveniles were contacted to come pick up their kids and all the kids who were drinking alcohol were issued citations, which will be processed through the Sheriffs Office Juvenile Programs Unit. A small amount of marijuana and two pipes were found at the scene and will be destroyed. U.S. Coast Guard Sector Key West took delivery of the 154-foot cutter Charles David Jr. in August and will commission it Saturday. Its one of one of six coming to Key West.Gill-net ban is put back in placeUsing commercial gill nets in Florida waters banned for 18 years suddenly became legal for nearly a week in early November.No reports their use were seen in Florida Keys waters before the ban was reinstated Nov. 6 by an appeals court ruling, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. If there were, we didnt hear about it, said Officer Bobby Dube, FWC spokes man for Monroe County. Now were back at it to enforce established rules, he said Tuesday. Current law allows fishermen to have two 500-squarefoot nets with 2-inch squares. Fishermen want the squares to be 3 inches. They believe nets with larger mesh sizes (gill nets) can catch target species primarily mullet while allowing juveniles to escape.For several days after Leon County Circuit Court Judge Jackie Fulford ordered the longstanding net ban lifted in late October because of what she described as a legal absurdity, FWC officers were prevented by her decision from enforcing the rules. But on Nov. 6, the First District Court of Appeal reinstated a stay on lifting the ban pending further legal review.The Florida Keys Com mercial Fishermens Associa tion joined other state commercial groups to seek status as an intervener in support of changing laws on gill nets.Nets can be a responsible method of harvest with reasonable limitations in place, said Bill Kelly, the groups executive director. What the industry is seeking is to have the FWC [board of directors] sit down with fishermen to discuss how to better manage fisheries.The industry hopes to come to the table with the FWC and interested environmental groups to see if there is common ground to better manage underutilized fisheries like Spanish mackerel. The original lawsuit filed in 2011 by the Wakulla County Commercial Fisher mens Association and others contends that specific rules on gill nets are arbitrary. The rules were crafted by state fishery managers after Florida voters overwhelmingly approved a 1994 constitutional amendment banning the use of gill nets in state waters. Groups like the Coastal Conservation Association of Florida ardently oppose lifting the gill-net rules. Massive schools of spawning mullet will be slaughtered by hundreds of netters returning to the coastline with their huge gillnets, said Ted Forsgren of the CCA. Commercial netters from North Carolina to Louisiana will be swarming Florida to jump on the spawning fish this fall. Kelly said the ramifications of Fulfords decision and the appeals court ruling could keep the issue in court for a year or more. Commercial fishermen have been frustrated by the FWCs unwillingness to amend rules, Kelly said. There were some improprieties with gill-net fishing before the 1994 referendum, due to the lack of reasonable rules to avoid conflicts, Kelly said. A lot of things can be done to avoid those. The CCA says the current rules have not overly limited commercial fishing but have allowed several key saltwater species to increase their populations.But the issue still going before courtsCOMMERCIAL FISHING By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com DAVIDContract talks break downDeadlocked over proposed contract language that allows the Monroe County School District to institute furlough days, it appears negotiations with the United Teachers of Monroe have broken down and Superintendent Mark Porter will hand off bargaining to labor attorney Bob Norton.Norton successfully defended the district under the watch of then-Super intendent Jesus Jara in 201112 as UTM appealed an unpaid seven-day furlough program with the state Public Employees Relations Commission and First District Court of Appeal.Porter has been negotiating for six months and with the pending entry of Norton, Its certainly not going to be the same, UTM President Holly HummellGorman said.The district instituted the furlough days in 2010 as years of deficit spending necessitated more than $13 million in cuts over two years. The seven furlough days are worth about $1.4 million.On Oct. 30, Porter announced an agreement in principle with UTM but since then, the one-year contract has been reviewed by union attorneys at the Florida Education Association.They took issue with the tentative agreement language, Hummell-Gorman said. We dont agree to keep it in since thats the language they used to do what they did to us. It must come out. Porter and the School Board have agreed to no furlough days for the 201314 school year. However, the districts proposed contract language would allow for unpaid furloughs if district finances later dictate.Tuesday, Porter said hes frustrated in part because the proposed furlough language is holding up raises. They would range in value from $2,125 to $3,832 per employee but cant be passed along to employees until a contract is finalized.The district and UTM have held 24 negotiation sessions the past six months.The district hired Miamibased labor specialist Norton in 2011. At least one negotiating session involving Norton, the UTM bargaining team to walk out. School Board member John Dick said he welcomes Nortons return.I think now, with this turn of events and that after 24 meetings they couldnt come to an agreement, I think it definitely shows the problem at the bargaining table was not Mr. Norton but on the other side, he said.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comOUR SCHOOLS Porter: Salaries to go to boardAt least one member of the Monroe County School Board takes issue with the manner in which Superintendent Mark Porter adjusted the salaries mostly upward of a dozen district employees. District 3 board member Ed Davidson said he planned to raise hell at a workshop set to take place after press time Tuesday at Marathon High School. Davidson maintains that Porter misled the board at an Aug. 13 meeting to discuss administrator salaries for the 2013-14 school year. Its totally unacceptable, Davidson said. The board never authorized the changes. Porter doesnt have that authority and he did it without disclosure. The changes should be explained and they should be justified. The School Board should either approve them or say no. When the issue was first raised by district watchdog Larry Murray, attention was focused only on Christina McPherson, district director of assessment and also Poinciana Elementary School interim principal. He salary went from $95,910 to $106,141. Board members subsequently directed Porter to list all changes to salaries. Porter expected to present that to the board Tuesday by way of what he calls a process improvement. He framed it as a need for clarity as to the division of responsibility and authority between the School Board and superintendent with regard to compensation. To avoid something similar from happening again, Porter says hell post administrator contracts online, bring raises for administrators to the board and develop a rigorous electronic communication and documented approval process for all changes in employee compensation. School Board member John Dick said there arent really complaints about the value, rather its about the way it was done. Besides McPherson, the following administrators had salary adjustments in the summer:Key West High social studies teacher Jennifer Barrios received a raise from $56,433 per year to $64,859.Plantation Key School Assistant Principal Kristy Bedell went from $59,590 to $82,821.Key West High teacher Henry Boza, formerly the Glynn Archer Elementary principal, went from $97,683 to $78,086.Horace OBryant Middle School teacher Kristen Condella went from $52,217 to $58,315.Transportation Super visor Randy Fabal, formerly a teacher, went from $70,932 to $90,894.Coral Shores High Principal Lisa Hayes-Taylor, formerly assistant principal, went from $80,068 to $91,933.Ayesha Osborne moved from the Finance Depart ment earning $36,076 annually to Human Resources for $42,051 per yearLesley Salinero, formerly exceptional-student education director and Stanley Switlik Elementary principal for $116,000 annually, went back to just ESE at $113,382 per year.Brett Unke moved from HOB assistant principal at $81,612 per year to Switlik principal at $88,610 per year.Steve Vinson went from Poinciana principal at $91,656 per year to HOB assistant principal at $82,995.Jerian Winn moved from being a legal secretary earning $46,566 per year to a human resources specialist earning $54,021.McPherson issue raised questions about processBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comOUR SCHOOLSRacers kin sues over boat deathTwo years after three powerboat racers were killed in the Key West World Championships, the family of one of the victims has filed a wrongful death lawsuit in Broward Circuit Court. William Tillman, uncle and personal representative of the estate of Big Thunder driver Jeffrey J.T. Tillman of Missouri, sued Super Boat International Productions President John Carbonell and five members of his medical, safety and inspection team, alleging their gross negligence was responsible for the death. The filing came Nov. 7 during the 2013 World Championships that concluded Sunday.Tillman, 46, drowned along with owner/throttleman Bob Morgan, 74, in November 2011 after their four-engine catamaran flipped backward and landed upside down in Key West Harbor during the first race of the series. The lawsuit, filed by Fort Lauderdale attorney William Scherer, accuses Carbonell and his medical and safety staff Louis Pizano, Donald DiPetrillo, Brian Haff and David Harshfield of a slow and poorly coordinated rescue effort that left Tillman trapped underwater in the wreckage for nine minutes before he was recovered.The suit alleges that rescuers wrongly assumed Tillman had been killed by blunt trauma in the crash and didnt hustle to extricate him. The suit also faults chief race inspector William Livingston for allowing Big Thunder to compete even though the boat lacked safety features such as a reinforced cockpit and thru-hull escape hatch that might have prevented the deaths. Three days after Morgan and Tillman died, a third racer, Joey Gratton of University Park, drowned after his boat flipped in a turn, trapping him inside. His crewmate escaped with minor injuries.Grattons widow, Priscilla Gratton, sued race organizers in 2012, also in Broward Circuit Court. Her attorney, Michael Allweiss, said he expects the case to go to trial in February.Carbonells wife, Deana, vice president of Super Boat International Productions, said of the latest lawsuit: We dont know anything about it and if we did, we couldnt talk about it.Its 2nd suit stemming from 2011 Keys eventBy SUSAN COCKINGscocking@MiamiHerald.comIN THE COURTS abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJ ASH Albert Creighton Ash, age 45, of Tavernier, formerly of Miami Springs and Key Largo, passed on November 5, 2013.

doing. Of course, its great for Marathon, too. The more people that come to DRC, the more they stay in the fabulous Florida Keys, she said. Part of the plan is already in the works, as the $1.2 million donation has been toward the purchase of a four-bedroom house on property adjacent to the DRCs existing 221,000 square feet. DRC closed on the 26,990square-foot lot in August.The house is being used to accommodate DRCs new College of Marine Mammal Professions. It includes classrooms, a student library and offices for the education department.The college is licensed by the Florida Commission for Independent Education and students graduate the 36-week program with an associates degree in marine mammal behavior, care and training. The first class of five students is under way and theyre being taught by existing DRC staff, including cofounder Mandy Rodriguez.The whole point of the program is to really prepare students for working in this field. They are being taught by professionals in the field, DRC Marketing Director Mary Stella said. In July, DRC acquired another adjacent parcel (on the east side) to add another 16,117 square feet to its property. It includes a deep lagoon that DRC hopes to one day use as habitat area for its 24 dolphins and three California sea lions. DRC will no doubt put the property to better use than former owners Eric and Laurie Pedersen did. Federal authorities raided the lot in February 2011 because it was being used to store and sell illegally harvested marine wildlife.Additional future projects include adding visitor parking and revamping the existing visitors center entrance.It appears now is a good time to be expanding the grounds, as DRC staff was busy welcoming two new calves to the facility over the past week. Aleta, 28, gave birth Nov. 6 while her halfsister Merina, also 28, delivered a calf Tuesday morning.Aleta and Merina were artificially inseminated via Sea World-Texas dolphins. The calves wont be named until staff is 100 percent sure of their genders.ing the area. It was then that I learned this may be more complicated than the maps let on, said Christine Ashburn, Citizens vice president of communications.We have a close working relationship with the Keys, which is why I reacted so quickly to ensure we were ahead of this issue in case legislative change was needed, she said. The vast majority of mortgage holders in Monroe County rely on Citizens, the state-run insurer of last resort, for coverage because private insurers wont issue wind policies in the Keys. Ashburn has already begun working with state Rep. Holly Raschein (RKey Largo) on a solution. I think its a case of unintended consequences. The environmentalists are always looking after growth and thats what their concern is, Raschein said.Raschein pointed out that the Keys are already an Area of Critical State Concern and therefore subject to heavy state oversight. She said she plans to file a bill soon for the upcoming Legislative session.I think its going to require legislation and thats what were working on with Citizens right now. Were working on language to, in essence, exempt Monroe County, she said. Monroe County monitored SB 1770 closely, but the language was added late without local officials knowledge. The Senate ultimately approved a watereddown version of the bill on May 2 and created a clearinghouse by which Citizens can steer policies into the private market. The bill was meant to facilitate Gov. Rick Scotts mandate for Citizens to purge at least half of its then-1.3 million policies to private insurers. It originally included potentially large rate increases for Keys residents that were ultimately removed. According to Citizens spokesman Michael Peltier, the agency holds roughly 24,600 wind-related policies in the Keys. Its unknown how many of those could be affected.Another hit for the Keys?From Insurance, 1A Wednesday, November 13, 2013 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com 36th AnnualSat., Nov. 23, 2013 Sat., Nov. 23, 2013 @ portofino coal fired pizza COAL FIRED ITALIAN COOKING 786-243-4000 campbell dr. @ fl turnpike exit #2 650 ne 22nd terrace homestead, fl ampbelldr. ca ca a a mp mp mp b be be be @ @ @ @ f l e l l l ll d d d d r r r. e e e ll ll ll ll PASTA TUESDAY UNLIMITED PASTA, FOCACCIA BREAD & SALAD 8.95*CHEAP PIZZA WEDNESDAY LARGE CHEESE PIZZA 9.95 2 ENTREES 19 95* 1/2 OFF LARGE PIZZA* FRIDAY DATE NIGHT FREE Appetizer w/purchase* Holiday Catering D Plans include home for collegeFrom DRC, 1A Photo courtesy DOLPHIN RESEARCH CENTERThe Dolphin Research Center on Grassy Key announced an ambitious expansion plan during its Founders Weekend Nov. 9 and 10.

Callahan told Becker that absolutely it appears some drugs were missing. He also repeatedly stated that his people followed the correct protocol and standard operating procedures by reporting the missing drugs to the Sheriffs Office.

The Key Largo Volunteer Fire Department was the primary agency with support from the Tavernier and Islamorada departments. Charles Croston, the fulltime resident of the mobile home, told deputies that he was house-sitting elsewhere but allowed Kaicher, his nephew, to use the Harborage home to sleep it off after a night on the town.Kaicher said he got hungry and decided to cook a steak.

Race founder John Carbonell has told city officials that hes negotiating with Clearwater and other towns that are interested in hosting his race series. He believes hell get more financial support than Key West provides.Mr. Carbonell is also worried that construction on the Truman Waterfront park would take away space needed for the race staging area, quaintly referred to as Race Village. Mayor Cates has reassured him that the city has put the kibosh on the senior assisted-living facility that was to be built there.As some of you may remember, the citizens of Key West voted for the assisted-living facility, but apparently that particular vote didnt count. Go figure. So as it turns out, good news there will be plenty of space for the village people and their eardrum-shattering, fiberglass widow makers. No worries.Nothing says pointless, meaningless excess quite like these boats (except maybe cruise ships). Cates says the city will find a way to get the assisted-living space to compensate for the boats because they put Key West on the map. Really? Nobody knew we were here before the powerboat races? I know Mayor Cates is a good guy just trying his best, but here is an opportunity to actually lead the city toward alternative revenue.If this island and our real economic engine, the environment, are going to survive, our leaders need to start leading and thinking about ways to entice people down here that dont involve gas-guzzling plastic absurdities world-class kayak competitions, kiteboarding competitions, fishing tournaments, dragon-boat races, perhaps international beach volleyball hell, underwater basket weaving. Just start thinking outside the box.Key West could get on the map as the No. 1 destination in the contiguous United States for ecotourism. Tree huggers and environmentalists like to eat, drink and party just as much as parrotheads, powerboaters and bikers, and will put the much-sought-after heads in beds without the destructive side effects.Alex Symington Key WestWhats the grand plan?Corporations have them, politicians have them and city councils have them. Some are truly visionary, others not so much. Every time I visit the Winn-Dixie in the Kmart plaza and Publix, I wonder what their grand plan is. Is it to throw out good tenants in all locations and replace them with empty storefronts for between two and 10 years while their grand plans develop, thus providing the Marathon Community with no jobs, empty business, a loss in taxes and a blighted environment? If you cant add to the community, please remove yourself from it and allow the movers and shakers to develop Marathon like it deserves. Mark Trachtman MarathonNations on right trackI read the interesting letter from a writer in Key Largo in the Nov. 6 Keynoter stating our country is dysfunctional and suggesting our president go play another round of golf or some kind of card game. I found the piece rather silly and simpleminded.It seems we Americans, guests and visitors sometimes do not realize just how good we have it here after eight years of Bush and Cheney. I wish only to point out some things almost forgotten.We are no longer fighting a war in Iraq. We no longer are on the hunt for the mass murderer Bin Ladin. We are practically out of Afghanistan. Our economic depression is now over. Our people are getting jobs. The housing market is in recovery. Health care is becoming a reality for millions who before were victims of immoral capitalists in control of the insurance markets, making billions of dollars off their poor backs.All this given America by Bush 43. Our people did not vote for a candidate named Romney who put his money in offshore banks to avoid taxation and operated a vulture fund that specialized in corporate buyouts that put people out of their jobs. No, our great nation is thriving and flourishing and we will continue to do so under President Obama. The eight years our nation experienced under the presidency of George W. Bush were such a disaster that it will take more than two presidential terms to repair our country. We need to work hard to see that Hillary Clinton runs for the presidency and wins it so we may continue our progress. Those who see our nation as dysfunctional are limited by either dislike of the president or the Democratic Party or both. I cannot imagine what a disaster our nation would be experiencing if Romney had become president. I doubt all the hotel and motel rooms all through the Keys would be filled to capacity and all the restaurants and bars filled as they are today had he become president of the United States.

Edward Snowden is a beacon of hope for all oppressed Americans within their homeland. He stands for truth, justice and the American way. Clyde Cates Jr. Key LargoMake recycling easierNov. 5 was Florida Recycles Day. I urge readers to be particularly mindful of their waste habits every day. Nationally, recycling is a great American success story. The average person generates about four pounds of trash per day, and recycles about a third of it. That is three times the amount of garbage recycled in 1980.Recycling is critical for the conservation of precious natural resources, and saves tremendous amounts of energy.But we still can do better, and that is why Florida legislators passed a bill in 2010 that would increase our states recycling rates to 75 percent within a decade. This is an ambitious goal, but we can get there if every Floridian does his or her part. On our end, our industry is working hard to bring Floridians the services and conveniences that make recycling easier, including single-stream recycling in which all recyclable products are thrown into the same bin and pickup of recyclables at the curbside, right alongside nonrecyclable household waste. Chuck Dees, chairman National Solid Waste Management Association Florida chapter Pompano BeachSouth Florida takes a big lead in addressing our biggest challengeThe word resilience got a serious workout at the fifth Southeast Florida Regional Climate Leadership Summit in Fort Lauderdale last week. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Deputy Administrator Bob Perciasepe used it to describe the type of cleaner energy production needed in the country to reduce heat-producing emissions and also as an objective for South Florida in dealing with the inevitable rise of sea level as the Earth heats up. Addressing elected officials, business leaders and the public, Perciasepe rightly praised South Florida leaders for creating a four-county alliance to develop ways to prepare and protect the region as the sea rises over the next 50 years, an increase that could be in inches or feet, depending on various contributing factors. Monroe, Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties have a lot to lose if the sea level rises even three or four inches over five decades. Billions of dollars worth of public infrastructure, private businesses, residents homes and more are at risk, not just for frequent flooding, but also outright inundation and destruction. The public battle to prepare for rising seas is still in its infancy in this region and not more than a blip on the radar in the state Capitol. People still want to live along the water. Developers, with a few exceptions, keep building condos with waterfront views and politicians who reject the very idea of climate change are still getting elected. Yet, there are glimmers of progress. In itself, the existence of the four-county climate leadership alliance, which represents 5.6 million residents, is encouraging. So are burgeoning education programs to teach children in South Florida about the effects of global warming in their lifetimes, whittling the climate-change skeptics over time. Some experts predict that the real wake-up call on climate change will come when private insurers react to increased threats of frequent flooding of property by raising rates or dropping coverage. Congress recently increased the costs of obtaining federal flood insurance to reflect real risks, though it appears to be ready to pull back in the face of constituents outrage. In truth, the price of flood insurance will rise along with the sea level, though most experts recommend only gradual rate increases as the wisest course. Rate increases, along with property owners having to deal with the aftermath of repeated flooding, will force rethinking about how South Florida continues to develop. The Seven50 Southeast Florida Prosperity Plan, a far-reaching project sponsored by the areas regional planning councils to create an economic blueprint for the next 50 years, poses several proposals, including restoring mangrove forests and beaches, higher sea walls where feasible and building better coastal and inland flood control. We need to prepare, now, to become resilient to endure and prevail in the future.

New youth center opens in MarathonJeff and Trish Cox have long felt that students in middle and high school in Marathon need an afterschool place of their own.The couple has run a youth group in town for seven years, but saw the need for more than that and decided to open the Marathon Youth Center at the First Baptist Church on 62nd Street. Tuesday was scheduled to be the centers first day.Trish Cox said the Marathon Recreation Center on 33rd Street is a quality facility providing good programs, but that it typically caters to students in elementary school, which is natural since it is adjacent to Stanley Switlik Elementary School.I think its the main reason were different, she said. Theres never been any place for the middleand high-school students to hang out. Its nice to have a place to come.Cox said she and her husband have set up two rooms inside the church with games such as air hockey, foosball and ping pong. Its open to any students free of charge for two hours after every school day. Well have snacks. They can play games and do homework if they want, Cox said. After school is purely a time for them to come in and hang out in a safe environment. Trish and Jeff will oversee the program to start, but if it grows in size, there are other volunteers available from the church to help out. For us, if 10 kids show up, thats great. But if 20 or 30 show up, thats great, too. During the summer, its going to be a good thing. Well extend hours and have it open up earlier, Cox said. Separate from the youth center, the Coxes have been hosting a Thursday evening youth group for seven years. Cox said roughly 25 to 35 students go each week from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Theres also a pot-luck dinner and small groups Wednesdays at 6 p.m. and Sunday bible study at 9:45 a.m. for all ages.

Anyone traveling by air this holiday season can book tickets, choose seats and check bags with confidence that they have a good sense of how much theyll have to pay as long as they do their research.All bets for next year are off, however, with the already lengthy list of airline fees likely to become even longer and more complicated. Recently, the chief executive officer of Spirit Airlines said the low-cost carrier is considering charging more (or less) for baggage and seat assignments based on demand. And the head of Southwest Airlines, which has service to and from Key West International Airport and is famous for its bags fly free policy, acknowledged that wed be crazy not to provide our customers with what they want if passengers prefer to pay la carte.At the beginning of the year, Southwest introduced a $40 upgrade that allows passengers to board early. Over the past five years, airlines have grown increasingly dependent on non-ticket revenue including baggage fees, seat assignment charges and food and beverage sales as a way to turn a profit despite rising fuel costs and consumer resistance to big fare hikes. And industry observers say they dont ever expect those fees to disappear. The federal Bureau of Transportation Statistics reports that airlines collected nearly $1.7 billion just in baggage fees in the first half of the year.In addition to $6 billion a year in baggage and reservation change fees, U.S. airlines also collect $9 billion more from selling extras like frequent flier miles, early boarding and seat upgrades, according to The Associated Press.Together, the fees account for 10 percent of U.S. airlines revenue and are the reason airlines are profitable, the Associated Press reported; without the fees, experts say fares would be 15 percent higher.Since 2008, global ancillary revenue reported by airlines has increased more than 164 percent from $10.25 billion to $27.1 billion worldwide last year, according to consultancy IdeaWorksCompany.In the report, ancillary revenue includes bag charges, other la carte fees, sales of frequent flier miles, advertising sold by the airline and other charges but not change fees. Extrapolating from the reported figures, the company estimates that worldwide ancillary fees will hit $42.6 billion in 2013.Games changedThe game is really changed because global and network airlines are on board with this now, said Jay Sorensen, the president of IdeaWorksCompany, which helps airlines build frequent flier programs and create a la carte products to sell. At the point when major airlines begin to rely upon this, it really moves the needle in terms of overall results for the entire industry. Legacy airlines in the U.S. started charging checked baggage fees in 2008 out of sheer desperation, Sorensen said: Fuel prices were soaring and fares were not able to cover the increasing costs. While airlines had charged for overweight or numerous bags, the first one or two pieces of checked luggage previously had been free. Out of that brutal economic need, they scrambled to put together some solution and it happened to be bag fees, he said. And that opened the door for them to charge fees in other areas.Boosted in part by the addition of a variety of fees, air carriers have steered toward healthier financial results. Despite the fact that the airlines are making money finally, they still are a relatively low-margin business, said Mark Drusch, chief supplier relations officer at the travel site CheapOair and a former executive with several airlines. The money they generate from the ancillaries are all helping to build those bottom lines. Although the airlines are profitable now, they are still relatively not making a whole lot of money.Robert Mann, president of airline industry analysis firm R.W. Mann & Co., said the costs associated with things like checked bags remain in place, so fees allow airlines to try to make it a quasi profit center and then price that option accordingly so they in effect get a return on having long ago made that investment. Fees are also not subject to the 7.5 percent excise tax levied on base fares. They are more or less gravy, Mann said. So its like 99 percent straight to the bottom line. While observers believe theres little left that airlines can charge extra for without risking a passenger revolt, they expect airlines to continue to experiment when it comes to extra revenue.There are obviously other things they could charge for, Mann said, citing Spirits carry-on fees. The question maybe is have they reached a point where the likelihood of pushback exceeds the likelihood of incremental revenue? Drusch pointed to upgrades or packages being sold by American and Delta that offer a free checked bag, early boarding and other amenities.I think youre going to see the carriers bundle fees to provide you with more than just the basic services, he said. They wont be onerous; they can be things you ... [are] willing to pay more for.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 6A Wednesday, November 13, 2013 CGC #A57773 SALUTE TO VETERANS Keys face shown at big trade showFlorida Keys businesses and nonprofit groups raised the red-and-white dive flag this week in Orlando during the dive industrys largest trade show. The DEMA Show 2013, hosted by the Diving Equipment & Marketing Association, drew thousands of diving and related professionals to the Orlando Convention Center from Nov. 6 through Saturday.While the number of exhibits by manufacturers, dive destinations and scuba-center operators was not a recordbreaker, it was a good show to go to, said Spencer Slate, whose Capt. Slates Atlantis Dive Center in Key Largo has attended for 35 years.It lets everybody know were alive and well, Slate said. Bob Holston of Dive Key West remembers attending the first DEMA show in Miami in the mid-1970s. It was a better show for us than last year in Las Vegas, and better than the [2011] show in Orlando, Holston said. I dont know what the attendance was but the quality of people there was more serious about coming to the Keys, or serious about recommending to their customers that they come to the Keys.The official Florida Keys display organized by the Dive Umbrella advisors to the county Tourist Development Council was smaller than in past years but got the message across, Holston said. Were satisfied. The Dive Umbrella is focusing more on the consumer shows that promote directly to individuals, he said, citing events in Chicago, New York, California, Germany and England.The Keys still has a significant presence at DEMA, said county public-relations consultant Andy Newman, but its not as critical as it used to be.The TDC this year allocated a total of about $700,000 to promote Keys diving and snorkeling, Newman said.The research connecting the environment to the economy shows about 1 million visitors plan to dive or snorkel while in the Keys, so thats more than 40 percent of our visitors who will personally experience the coral reef of the fabulous Florida Keys, he said. Even if they dont dive or snorkel every day, its an integral part of their Florida Keys experience.DIVING Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWCoral Restoration Foundation staffers Jessica Levy (left) and Kayla Ripple check the DEMA Show display for their nonprofit organization, based in Tavernier.Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYThe Southernmost Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3911 won the best-float award in Key Wests annual Veterans Day parade, which rolled down Duval Street Monday.

Weve got a lot of experienced veterans back, and the best freshmen class Ive seen in about 10 years, longtime boys coach Jorge Bosque said. Our team goal is to move on to the regional tournament this season. Junior forward Paul Pauchey booted two goals for the Canes, with senior midfielder A.J. Paterson getting a solo score. Our defense played an excellent game, Bosque said of the revamped group that rang up a shutout in its first outing. Steven Chadwick, a multi-year starter, anchored the field defense with second-year starter Sal Barrios as goalkeeper. Chad Corliss, a junior, and freshmen Sean Walters and Edward Jankowski, earned spots on the starting defense. Standout midfielder Paterson returns for his senior season with new midfield mates Robert Mather, a junior, and freshman Josh Hoelper. Jack Hatfield, a varsity veteran who missed last season, returns as a senior forward opposite Pauchey. Coral Shores went 10-6-1 last year, and could make a run to the championship round of the seven-team district, Bosque said.Team shuts out Westminster in season opener at homeCORAL SHORES BOYS SOCCER FISHING THE FLORIDA KEYSSteve, Ed, Mike and Dave from Maryland, and Steve from South Carolina, had a fine catch of wahoo and tuna aboard the Scarlet Rose out of Charterboat Row in Key West.Sailfish still a good optionThe action on the reef is really starting to heat up. The Islamorada area is seeing a good deal of sailfish activity. Youll find them spraying ballyhoo at first light but by mid-morning, youll need to switch gears and move to the deeper edge of the reef. Look for cruising fish and use live bait.Mixed in with the sails have been some gaffer-size dolphin and the occasional blackfin tuna. And with the full moon this weekend, you can expect a few wahoo to come back to the fillet tables.Fishing for yellowtail and mutton snapper on the reef remains good, mostly in the shallower depths, as has been the case for the past couple of weeks. Mutton fishing on the deeper wrecks has also begun to show signs of improvement. On the patch reefs, the mangrove snapper bite continues to be productive, with increasing numbers of cero and medium-size king mackerel also making a showing. Chunks of ballyhoo or small, live pinfish work great for the mangroves, while a live ballyhoo fished back in your slick is the ticket for the mackerel. As hoped, growing numbers of keeper grouper are ending up on the end of the hooks. All three main players red, black and gag grouper are eating baits with enthusiasm. Its no secret weve been dealing with a lot of wind this month, and it looks as though the pattern will continue for awhile. Great places to hide from the windSnapper fishing on the reef also strongAllen breaks school mark at state finalsHe didnt win, but Key West High senior swimmer Derrick Allen had one of the most stunning days in the schools athletic history Saturday at the state 2A swimming finals in Stuart. All season, he had flirted with breaking Luke Knights school record of 22.22 seconds in the 50-yard freestyle, but he could get no closer than 22.40. Saturday, before a packed crowd at the Sailfish Splash Park Aquatic Center, he broke 22 seconds not once, but three times. The trilogy began in the morning preliminaries when Allen, seeded 22nd, finished fifth in 21.74 seconds to break Knights record. I was really nervous, but Isaiah Green told me to take a deep breath and Marcus Brisson gave me an inspirational speech, Allen said, referring to two of his 200 free relay teammates. At the finish, Allen, who couldnt read the scoreboard without his glasses, asked the swimmer in the next lane to tell him the results. At first I didnt believe I had broken it, he said. Then when he told me I went, Woooo! The new record lasted less than an hour. He broke it again in the 200 relay when, leading off for Brisson, Green and Chris Bujak, he swam his leg in 21.66, which counted as a 50 free performance. In the finals late in the afternoon, Allen, the first Key West swimmer to ever make the finals (top eight), finished eighth in 21.94, seven spots behind New Port Richey Ridgewoods Emir Muratovic, who won in 20.81. A great day, a great season, a great career, said Allen, who had to miss playing tenor sax in the band at the homecoming football game the night before. Allen, whom Key West coach Lori Bosco calls just a great person, hopes to swim in college. Ill go wherever Im wanted, he said. The Conch 200 free relay team, which was undefeated in the regular season, finished 13th in 1:32.15 eight seconds behind winner Clay High and Green completed his junior season with a 24th-place finish in the 100 breaststroke.Overall, Conch comes in 8th in 50-yard freeBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST SWIMMING Depleted Dolphins fall to CarrolltonA shorthanded Marathon High School girls soccer team struggled Monday with a speedy Carrollton School squad in Miami.The Dolphins lost for the second time this season, 6-1, to a Cyclones team that also defeated Marathon in its regular-season opener on Oct. 29.Theyre just a really good team. Theyre very strong and we just couldnt contain them, coach Cindy Durkin said. Starting goalie Sacha Olivera is missing time with a concussion and forward Chandler Elliott isnt eligible to play after receiving a red card Nov. 6 against Doral Academy, so those two things didnt help the Dolphins cause, either. We had some other opportunities, as well, but were definitely feeling the pain of not having Chandler and Sacha not available, Durkin said. Our bench was thin and when that happens, its tough to contain tougher opponents. The Dolphins actually led early, as Savannah Rodamer scored off a Brandi Spalten through ball at the 8:20 mark in the first half to make it 1-0. But Carrollton answered back with goals in the 11th, 14th, 21st and 25th minutes. The Cyclones led 4-1 at the break.Carrollton added two more goals in the latter part of the second half to put the game out of reach. The Cyclones also missed a penalty-kick try wide and Dolphins goalie Samantha Bonilla made a diving stop on another point blank chance.Despite the lopsided score, Durkin praised defender Savannah Schuhmacher for rallying the defense and keeping the Dolphins within reach until late in the game.

I was excited that the first game was a win, she said, adding, however, that she wasnt pleased with the free-throw shooting and the defense against a weak team. Im not happy because we should have blown them out worse, she said. The margin would have been much greater had Ryann Appleby not missed eight consecutive free throws in the third quarter or Tanisha Multy had not gone 0-for-5 from the 3-point line.Carrollton made only three of 29 field-goal attempts and committed 31 turnovers, most of which were turned into easy Key West baskets.Mims said she didnt expect to score 21 points or shoot so many uncontested layups. But in practice the main thing we do is layups, she said with a smile.After taking a 16-3 firstquarter lead, Mims scored six consecutive transition layups to begin the second period.It was 41-8 at the half, and a running clock was used early in the third after the Conchs built a 35-point lead.Mims was followed in the scoring column by Nicole Konhaeuser Lopez, who had 12 points and was one of the few Conchs who scored from outside. Multy had 10 points; Brooke Marsden had nine (including a 3-ponter); Appleby had six; and Saria Smith scored two. The Conchs were 25-of52 from the field but were only seven of 22 from the free-throw line.

Justin Mock started the scoring with a blast from 25 yards early in the first half. That was followed by a goal from an onrushing Adam Swiecicki. Swiecicki, a speedy, excitable freshman, celebrated by doing a belly slide on the grass as he returned to the bench. That brought an admonishments from a referee and Pierre, who said, Adam, dont do that again. Im tired, but Im going back in, said Swiecicki, who sat for a few minutes before returning to the field and scoring again to give the Conchs a 3-0 lead at the half. On the sideline, Pierre, a lean figure in T-shirt and jeans, was animated and vocal, much in the style of his mentor, former Conch coach Jason Clifford. Tuck your shirt in, we dont want a yellow card, he advised one player, and to Donte Thompson, he shouted, Donte, you need to open your mouth when youre that open! Many of his commands were followed with a thank you, which was always part of Cliffords deportment. In the second half, Key West, which improved to 21, began peppering the goal with regularity. Freshman Noah Cutchin headed in a goal near the left post for a 4-0 lead, and later, after junior Bobur Ilkhomov scored to make it 5-0, Cutchin headed in another shot from in front of the net. Sophomore keeper Christian Lee preserved his shutout with a great save late in the game.Conch girls loseIn the first game of Saturdays doubleheader, the Key West girls team allowed a goal with 45 seconds to play and lost to Masters Academy.The Conchs, who fell to 1-3, tied the game at 1-1 on Caila DeAbreus sixth goal of the season, and then tied it at 2-2 late in the second half on a goal by Julia Passarelli. But with time running out, Jenna Marek beat keeper Angela Martin for the winning goal and a final score of 3-2, Masters.Im getting tired of inviting people down here to beat us, said coach Scott Paul, who was unhappy with the defense and with an offense that kicked too many slow rollers to the keeper.We just cant finish, Paul said.

Its a matter of knowing when to save and when to spend. And that rule applies as much to money as to time and energy. Because the better you understand where time in the kitchen can pay serious dividends versus just leaving you frustrated and disappointed the easier it is for you to decide which parts of the big meal should get your time, and which should get your cash.To help you sort it all out, here are our Top 12 Thanks giving trouble spots, along with a take on where your time and money are best spent.The turkeyHow often do you roast a turkey? Once, maybe twice a year? And youre likely to spend four or more hours slaving over the sucker, right?So why not splurge on an, organic, heirloom bird raised by free-spirited workers on a collective? The bird, after all, is the centerpiece of the meal. Make it a good one.The brineIts all about moisture. And brining is worth your time. Because a moist bird makes for a delicious dinner.You could do a basic brine, which is a 1:1 ratio of kosher salt and sugar dissolved in water. Plunk the bird in that for eight to 72 hours and youre good to go. But anyone can do a basic brine.What you want to do is invest a few extra minutes and a couple extra dollars to make sensational brine.Using the same 1:1 ratio, youre going to dissolve kosher salt and brown sugar in gently simmering apple cider seasoned with black pepper and fresh rosemary. Add a ton of ice to cool it down, then resume your poultry plunking.The roastDont just pop the bird in the oven. Lube it up with as much butter as you can, both under and over the skin.And while youre at it, jam some fresh herbs under the skin, then pop some lemons and fresh rosemary into the cavity. (Dont fret over needing room for the stuffing. Well get to that in a moment.) This all takes a few extra minutes, but its well worth it.BastingDo it. But dont do it more than every 30 minutes. Every time you open that oven door, all the heat rushes out. Baste more than every half hour or so and your bird wont be done until Christmas.The rollsUnless you are an amazing baker, buy your rolls. Theyll be better than what most amateurs can produce. And you wont spend hours fighting with the dough. Want a homemade touch? Make the butter to go with the rolls. It takes five minutes and will be the best butter youve ever eaten. Seriously. Dump a quart of heavy cream in a food processor, then turn it on. Let it go for about three to five minutes. First it will turn into whipped cream, then the buttermilk will break away from the fat. Once the fat (butter) is all clumped together, dumped out the liquid.Place the butter in a bowl and knead it to squeeze out more liquid. Once no more liquid comes out, season it with kosher salt and eat it at room temp. Best. Butter. Ever.Mashed potatoesDry potatoes are better potatoes. So after you boil them, spend a few extra minutes spreading them on a baking sheet. Pop the potatoes in the oven at about 350 F for 10 minutes.After the potatoes are dried out, use a ricer to get just the right texture. Then load on the butter and milk. Spare the fat, spoil the potatoes.The saladWaste of time. Waste of money. Dont do it. Nobody wants it. Nobody eats it. Thanksgiving is about carbs and fat. Be virtuous the next day.The stuffingDont complicate your life or your bird by stuffing your stuffing. This is why casserole dishes were invented. But do spend a little extra to use real bread (not bagged stuffing).Get good bread, let it go stale, cut it into cubes, then toast it in the oven. And when you assemble the stuffing, get some dried fruit in there, which offers a nice contrast of texture and flavor. Dried cherries, cranberries and apricots are all excellent choices. And tons of onions, sage and celery are nice counterpoints to the fruit. Dont forget an egg or two for structure.Cranberry sauceJust make it. Its five minutes out of your life and it will make such a difference at the table. Use the recipe on the bag, but add as many other varieties of dried and fresh fruit as you can handle.Green veggiesWhen in doubt, add bacon. Green beans. Brussels sprouts. Whatever. Bacon makes them better. Money spent on bacon is money very well spent.Orange veggiesWere talking sweet potatoes and butternut squash. Leave the mashing for the white potatoes. Instead, cut the orange ones into cubes, dust them with cornstarch, a sprinkle of oil and whatever seasonings get you going, then roast them until lightly browned and tender.The pieUnless youve recently won a bake-off, heres another place to spend money instead of time. A good baker will make your efforts taste like something from 7-Eleven.Instead, spend your time making fresh whipped cream using really good heavy cream spiked with fresh vanilla bean and a bit of powdered sugar. And the same cream can be piled onto the coffee you serve with dessert.Minimize your time in kitchen with these tipsJ.M. HIRSCHAssociated PressTHE THANKSGIVING MEALAssociated Press photos by MATTHEW MEADThese are the ingredients for brining a turkey. Many experts say even a frozen supermarket bird will suffice if you brine it and brown it. Mmmm, pie. This one (above) is made of plums, peaches and apples topped with brown sugar and oat crumble streusel baked in a purchased crust. Knowing which Thanksgiving items to go big on depends on your menu, skills, family and friends. This is the brussels sprouts with bacon (left). Thanksgiving is the holiday of sanctioned indulgence, but strategic splurging can keep your budget and your time under control. LIVING BRIEFS
